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!

Overreacting? or something to it??

Hey ladies :-) So, ahead of time Im sorry for the TMI...but this is really the only place it seems to be okay to be this graphic :-) Had my monthlie early July (started the 10th) it was an odly light period, short, (light for me anyway) and it finally stopped onthe 3rd day.  The next few days we BD'd, and the second day I saw light easter egg pink colored CM...NEVER had that before.  Have had af style cramps the WHOLE MONTH off and on...felt O pain around the 24.  My temps post O went from 97.13 fo4 days straight and then jumped to 97.45, then this morning I was at 97.31....I know that I am a symptom stalker sometimes, but I have felt kinda funny lately...another note, my bbs have been sore the whole month as well.  the right one gets worse, especially in the AM and when I take the boulder-holder off.  Does anyone else have experiences like this when they are pregnant? I keep telling myself Im overreacting but something just seems different...

Waiting to see if husband and i concieved

confused, and possibly pregnant?

Me and my husband have been trying to conceive for the past couple of months now. 

We had sex July 23rd and 24th, and my period ended on July 22nd.

I have shown all the signs of early pregnancy (nausea, sore breasts, cramping,  fatigue,  etc.), but last night I noticed I had some blood when I wiped, I thought I had started my period (even though im not suppose to start until the 18th) but when I woke up this morning there was absolutely no blood! 

Is there a possibility im pregnant? 

Should I see a doctor?

CD 12 Neg opk but feel like O.

Pretty new to this site.. not new to ttc. We've been trying for number 2 for 7 months. Decided to use opk's this month - 1st time not using digital. Testing twice a day... CD 12 still negative this am. Will try after work as I know the afternoon reading is more accurate. Totally feel like I'm ovulating and afraid I'm missing the window. We're not going to BD till I get a positive reading as DH has low (normal to low - due to motility) count. Just don't want to miss this window... Anyone else felt like this while waiting for a positive opk?

what a tease! 3dpo pregnancy dream

Writing this on my phone from bed in the middle of the night, super groggy so my apologies for errors or making little sense. My DD has been up to nurse every hour or two, so I awoke from a pregnancy dream with sore nipples. Not a surprise or symptom really because she just got in 3 top teeth all at once and they have been scraping my poor ladies.


Anywho, in my dream i was back in college. That was odd enough, but then there was some weird guy knocking at my car window trying to get in (he didn't).. then I saw a pack of condoms in my car and I pushed my finger through all of them, like tearing them. Again super odd and random. Then I guess some old high school friends were at the college and I was walking aroutummy w, and I felt a baby move. The feeling was so distinct in my dream! I could literally feel a thin baby leg and foot through my stomach.


I asked some girl from high school if she could feel it, and she put her hand on my stomach and said "well yeah, you're pregnant right?" I said "I could be but not that pregnant!" And she said "well did you think you were pregnant before?" In some snotty way. 

I woke up feeling my tummy for a foot :( no foot, and as we didn't pull the goalie until this cycle, there's no way to be more pregnant than I think lol 

Besides, they say dreaming you're pregnant means someone else around you is pregnant & if someone else dreams youre pregnant is when it counts for you..


Well back to bed, and luckily I should have a busy weekend to keep from obsessing. But the obsession now finds me in my dreams lol oh dear.

First time TTC- all ready going crazy!

My husband and I started TTC this month. I just stared the TWW and it all ready sucks! Right now we just decided to go with the fertility calendar, I didn't take my temp or use an ovulation kit or anything. According to the calendar, I should have ovulated anywhere from Monday-Wednesday (today is Thursday). My husband and I DTD on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday (every other day during my fertile days). All ready I feel like I have symptoms but everything I've read says its impossible. I'm bloated, I have cramping, my lower back hurts, I have a little bit of a sore throat, I woke up a little stuffy today, I'm peeing constantly (and I'm not one who pees a lot), I'm moody, I'm EXHAUSTED yet I can't sleep very well. Every night I stay up till 2am looking on the internet about everything to do with fertility, ovulation, symptoms. I'm totally obsessed. LOL. It's all ready taking over my life and this is only the first month of trying. I don't know if I could take months and months or years of this. Who knew that waiting just a few weeks would drive me so crazy?! It's all I think about! So today, at the very most, I would be 3 dpo so theres no way there would be any symptoms at all. I think I'm just so hopeful and excited that I'm reading way too much into anything my body does. I'm not supposed to get my period until 8/12. I don't know how I'll be able to last that long. I'm so happy I found this website so I can vent to people who are going through the exact same thing. Good luck to all! Trying to relax and take deep breaths and take my mind off it, but it's soooo hard! 

2DPO - I think

UGH. First cycle ttc#2. I'm super frustrated already! We didn't really try for numero uno, so this is all kinda new to me. I've been charting for a few months, and as I am breastfeeding, it's harder for me to pinpoint O. Doesn't help that this last cycle was all out of whack and I started on what would have been CD22 instead of CD26 or 27.

I was sure I had O'd relatively close to what I'll call "on time" this month then 2 days later I got EWCM & mittelschmerz. We had BD CD9-12. I think I O'd CD14. But our BD on CD 12 was like 12am so pretty much CD11 :/ So, we didn't even BD at the right time! And won't be able to BD until this weekend, which will be too late. Super sad.

I feel like I'm out before we even started!


TMI Alert:

Yesterday I had unidentifiable CM. It was a little stretchy, very thick, and WHITE. Like, super white. Not see-through at all. Not slippery, even kinda tacky/sticky. Almost like a boiled egg that wasn't fully cooked, slimy and shiny but not thin enough or stretchy enough to be CM. Globby, almost. Hoping it wasn't some super weird fertile CM meaning I O'd even later than I thought. And now I am having a super "wet" feeling down there and I'm hoping that's not a bad sign that I'm ovulating WAYYY later than "normal".

I'm feeling not so hopeful and morose today :( This morning I even had a touch of nausea, which I usually get around O time. I'm only 2 days in, if that, and I'm already swinging between hopelessly hopeful and obsessive, and depressed and defeated.


Still 13 days left in this wait.. At least next month will be a better one. Anyone else less than thrilled or excited with this months 2WW?

CD 2 for me...

Well I am over the initial sadness, self-loathing and crying portion after finding out that I'm not pregnant yesterday... Thank God (my poor DF lol)

So... I am hoping that this is going to be our month this time around.. Any tips/tricks you ladies have for me, I would love to hear them! 


TTC month 2

8/1/13--Well I'm not sure if I'm 7 or 8 dpo. Positive opk on cd13 but my bbt chart says I ovulated on cd13. Kinda weird but had progesterone drawn yesterday and it was only 7.9. Last month it was 4. Dr said it is way too low. also took a HPT and got BFN. However, gums bled a little this morning, low back pain, thick yellowy CM, and nipples seem slightly tender. This past weekend I was exhausted and slept a lot. According to my charts AF should be here 8/7 so I guess I'll wait. Very sad to find out about my progesterone and Get bad news from my doctor.

08/02/13--ok so according to Fertility friend I am 10 DPO but according to two other apps I'm only 9 DPO. so give or take lol. Anyway another BFN today. MY BBTs are 7/28-98.01, 7/29-98.02, 7/30-97.86, 7/31-97.51, 8/1-97.45, and 8/2--97.69 my coverline is 97.2 (see attched) would the change in these temps constitute a "dip" or is this just a normal shift during the cycle? I've also got some white kinda cloudy cm today. doesn't stretch and isn't really sticky. kinda hard to explain. Hope that's not TMI. I know I am kinda getting my hopes up considering my progesterone was only 7.9 but I can't help it with all these weird things going on. Dr told me to continue with metformin and pregnitude so I am.(BTW my bbt chart looks funny in the beginning cause i didn't take temps at the same time until 7/22) Anyone else have low progesterone but still get pregnant??

08/03/13--10-11 DPO HPT is still negative. But have clear stuff coming out of my right breast (only when I squeeze it but still there sorry if TMI), back aches and continue to have lotiony mucus. Temps are still above coverline. have some pressure/cramps every now and then and some tingles in my boobs. cloudy brown discharge when I wipe.My period is due on wednesday so guess I'll keep waiting and testing. Not sure its worth it though  :(

08/04/13-11-13 DPO, HPT NEGATIVE. been having these tingling almost stinging like feelings going through my boobs today and yesterday. very BLAH today. ate fried seafood today and needless to say it did not set well with my stomach. very tired. had some very strong cramps while standing up today. i had to go lie down before it went away. then when i stood back up, walked aboout 15 feet it happened again, but i keep telling myself that was because of the fried seafood and i just needed to go potty. sorry if tmi but hey trying to keep track of all symptoms so i know what to expect in the future. the brownish discharge/cm is still there as well. i do recall though a month or two ago that a day before my cycle started if i "checked" my cm then it was more like AF blood than cm. if that even makes sense. temp was 97.46 today. still above coverline. guess ill know more in 3 days but not very promising!

08/05/2013--12-13 DPO--hpt negative this morning. still brown discharge but only when I "check." Temp was 97.71. my boobs don't hurt I just have a lot of tingly feelings in my nips and sometimes a little stinging in the sides. Still not getting my hopes up because i feel the tests should at least be faint by now and I think I  had this same discharge last month or maybe 2 months ago before AF showed her ugly face. Sorry for so much info but I want to keep track of everything this month so that I can read the signs better in the future.

08/07/2013--WELL AF was due to show her face this morning but hasn't come yet. Temp was 97.75 this morning and no more brownish cm. It's more creamy now. bbs are slightly sore but not much and slight cramps in lower pelvic area. still BFN on HPT though. :(

 08/09/13--HPT and Blood test are both negative. Still no AF and temps are still up. Beyond confused!


Well, this is cycle 4 ttc.  Finally started using OPK and got two very solid lines this past Monday.  Solid lines Tuesday morning but by Tuesday night it was a lighter line.  I suppose that means i'm about 3 dpo.

I've been pretty nauseous the past couple of days.  Wonder if that is a sign of ovulation?  I don't think I noticed ovulation signs before except EWCM...(got EWCM on Monday btw) There are bugs going around as well I've heard so i'm not sure.

We BD Monday and Tuesday and I guess it's just the waiting game now.  Plan to BD again tonight for good measure.

As you all know, this is pretty much all I can think about.
