Trying-to-Conceive Blog

If you’re anything like me, you’re reading everything you can get your hands on when it comes to trying to get pregnant. Thank goodness for the Internet – I don’t know how anyone got pregnant before the advent of personal computing….

We have a place here on TWW for ladies to tell their BFP stories, as well as a spot for submitting their symptoms to determine if they might be pregnant. We have a wonderful TTC community where you can get valuable support and ask questions. But until now, we didn’t have a spot for the detailed monologue of your trying to conceive experience.

Introducing the Two Week Wait Trying-to-Conceive Blog. This is where you can create your very own blog of your TTC experience—every detail, blow by blow. Note that you’ll need to create an account with us first in order to create your blog. It’s free, of course. That’s how we roll here at TWW.  *there is a 24 hour waiting period on new accounts before you'll be able to start posting to your new blog.  In the meantime, have a look around and get to know the site!

Happy blogging!

Actual symptoms or all in my head


I'm 9dpo and I'm having crazy symptoms since I was 7dpo. Is that possible? I've been pregnant in the past and I've never had symptoms this early! Here are my symptoms: achy bbs especially nipples, full achy feeling in uterus, even when I walk it feels sensitive. I'm also cramping a lot even though today it's a bit better. Heartburn (never suffer from this). Quesy/weak feeling in stomach and a bit of a headache. Sorry I know it's long. So is there a possibility that I'm feing symptoms so early or is it pms or all in my head? Tested yesterday night at 8dpo and got a BFN :-/

Am I out?

So i've been testing with frers and getting BFNs.  I really thought this would be the month!  Cycle is usually 28 days but last cycle was 25.  Today would be the 25th day in this cycle.. with 28 being this Thursday.

If I used a frer this morning and it was a BFN am I out for this month?  Wouldn't it have picked it up by now?  I mean if it says up to 6 days early...

I don't have any frers left at home... only some cheapies. 


Any help or advice would be great.  I'm feeling pretty lost - especially because we're not really telling people that we're "trying".

HELP! I'm pregnant 7 weeks and family disapproval.

So.... I just got the *good* and *exciting* news that I am indeed pregnant. Now.. im not sure how to react? Im only 18.. my boyfriend is 22. We are happily in-love. however, because of my age my parents are going to disapprove. If i want to keep this baby I am going to need to give up on my family. I do not know what to do :( I saw the ultrasound scan of my baby and i saw the heartbeat. It was a life changing experience that i can not put into words. I want this baby more than anything but i feel like i will be letting a lot of people down as i havent even got into my studying yet.. im nowhere near finished my studies. It is easy for my boyfriend as he is a chef and has a career... But I am very lost. I need some advice please :( 

Eager beaver!

Hi ladies,

This will be DF and I's first month TTC!  I had my period on June 14, first one after coming off the pill and it arrived right on time!  However, I was supposed to get Af yesterday, according to my calendar, however she hasn't shown up yet, although I feel like she could any time!  I have never been late before but I am thinking I may have been off in my days or maybe my body is just adjusting to being off the pill?  Perhaps I will get my BFP a month early lol!  

We are super excited to start trying this cycle, I just wish I new when Af was going to arrive so I could predict when I will O and start testing for that!

i hope to find a tww buddy once I sort out my cycle!

baby dust to all you lovely mom's in waiting!!!  :)


evap or faint line?

i need help . do u think its a evap or faint? my temp has slowly been rising. on cd 45 af yet. lower back pain for a week and slight breast with aerola slight dark. and cramps for two week. plz help

After a week of unprotected sex, I started my period 1 week early?!

My boyfriend lives out of state at the moment, we just had a week long vacation together that ended this past Friday. During our week together, we had a lot (sorry for all the details lol) of unprotected sex as we want to conceive. However, I started spotting/bleeding yesterday, yet if this is my period, it's almost a week early, something that never happens. I'm cramping as well, like I do during my period but have also experienced tiredness, more hungry, and mood swings. It's like a period/pregnancy symptom overload, hard to tell what symptoms are for what at this point!! I guess my question is, how much bleeding is too much to be considered "implantation" bleeding and is the cramping normal? I know I sound like a new prego chic, however, I have 2 kids already, but the last one was over 8 years ago...


Depressing bfn

Well. Another fbn this morning with frer. Tiny cramps this morn that are getring stronger and they are down low. I just feel like af is on her way any second. Usually I'm a 28 day cycle but last month was 25. Tomorrow is day 25. I woke up with a headache. 

I suppose I can look at it the same this month as the last two... ill get to try again next cycle.

Thanks for listening to my vent! I'm on here all the time reading stories good and bad. Much baby dust to all.

First 2 Week Wait

So I have been testing with OPK sticks since I finished my first AF after coming off the birth control pills beginning of June, and finally today it is positive.

So did the BD this morning, and hopefully later and tomorrow too just for good measure.


FX this will be my month!


Baby dust to all!


On to my first 2WW :D

Western and Eastern Medicine

I am a 44 year old TTC married woman with my DH who is 43. We have been trying for quite awhile to get pregnant and we have gone through the process of IVF and are now getting ready for implantation. Before I begin the process I have just finished reading Inconcievable by Julie Indichova , The Infertilty Cure by Randine Lewis, and now I have started The Fertile Female also by Julie Indichova. I will say that the books are encouraging and I am drawn to many natural practices of incorporating some Eastern Medicinal practices in my Journey before I undertake the process of implantation. I have 5 frozen embryos and I want to have the best possible chance of achieving a successful transfer. I would like to know if anyone else has tried TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), accupuncture or natural methods?

Implantation bleeding? Faint line? Help!

New to this site, and looking for some help, please and thank you!

So, I started spotting 9dpo...I was thinking maybe implantation bleeding, but had a lot of PMS symptoms as well: headache, tender breasts, and also cramps that were WAY more intense than I usually get with PMS. The spotting and other symptoms lasted for about a day and a half, and I figuered game-over, my period was just around the corner. I tested with a FRER today (11dpo), and there's a faaaaaint line, I swear. I'm attaching the pic so you can have a look.

Any ideas? PMS? What's going on in my body?? I'm working tonight (I'm a nurse and work night shift), and cannot stop thinking about that faint line and if it means anything....
