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!

New TTC - any advice welcome!

Hi all,

I have been following these blogs for quite some time and finally decided to join!

Here's my story:

I stopped bc at the end of April so DH and I have only been trying to conceive a few months - and I must say I'm already driving myself crazy. I never knew TTC would be this difficult. I am not tempting or anything, but do track my cycles and ovulation using OPKs. My husband is still a little iffy about having a child so I can't really talk to him about all of this emotional stress. He did agree to stop bc pills and is ok if it happens, he just doesn't want ppl to know we're "trying" just yet.  

So this cycle, AF was on June 25, took an OPK on July 8 (CD 14) and got a faint positive. BD on July 9. Took another OPK on July 10 and it was a for sure positive (test line darker than control). I'm wondering though, because I had the most ovulation symptoms on the July 8 (thick CM, bad headaches, bloating etc.) so I'm not sure if I might have O'd either on that day or the 9th when we BD'd. What do y'all think are the chances since we only BD'd that one time? I've heard of ppl catching the Lh surge on the way up and the way down so idk. Oh and my last cycle was 26 days, if that helps.

Any advice would be appreciated! I truly admire all off you who have been TTC for years but at the same time, hope and pray it doesn't take that long for us! Thanks and keep posting!

New to the community

Hello ladies,

I am new to the blog community. My doctor recommended I look for a blogging community to write some of my emotions and feelings out about this waiting period. so here it goes. I would love some feedback cause the last two websites I tried I had no feedback.

 

My name is Melissa. I am 24 years old. Married. Active duty military. I have been diagnosed with PCOS, and am trying to fit my life into the difficulties its brought on. My husband is stationed in Guam, and currently home on leave. Before he left and for the last year and 5 months we have been TCC and have had no luck. While we were seperated for 4 months I started metformin, and started excercising more. My periods still aren't coming normal and its so hard to figure out when I ovulate if I even do. Well for 9 days now we have been having sex. The first meeting was like 3 times because we were excited and hadn't been with each other for a while, but since then every other day we have been having unprotected sex to make a baby.

 

Out of curiosity do you think that going that long without having sex, and then having it increases your chances or decreases?

 

Anyways, its going on 9 days since the initial sex, and multiple meetings since. I would kill for prayers. I want this more than anything in the entire world. The crazy thing is I really in all honesty feel different. I'm so tired last two days and have these little cramps just randomly fluttering in my ovaries. Of course it could be my actual cysts I have in there but. I would love to think that I am pregnant. It would be the best thing to happen to me in a long time.

I know eventually I am going to have to take clomid and all this other not so fun medication to make it work. But wouldn't it be perfect if God answered my prayers while my husband was home and we concieved a beautiful baby boy or girl.

I look forward to helping talk about this exciting time with all of you. Thank you.

****BABY DUST*****

I want this so bad!

Ok, so I keep up with EVERYTHING on my ovuview app on my android. From my period, sex, breast tenderness down to headaches and mucus. Been doing this for 18 months now. 

Husband and I have been trying to get pg for nearly 3 years now almost. And always nothing. He works pipeline and don't see each other a lot. We've kinda given up 6 months back. Well 3 weeks ago he was laid off and come home. SEX TIME! With his schedule im lucky to get it 3 times a month, unless i travel outta state to see him. Today I went back into my ovuview and read my chart. 

June: 7 and 15 Sex (family week vacation for a week)

June: 23 to 27 sore breast (as usual w each period coming up)

June: 25, 26, 27 Sex

June: 28 spotting started 

June: 29 to 30 full period as normal, but 1 to 2 days shorter.

July: 1 Spotted very little & period over. 

July: 2, 4, 5, 6 Sex 

July: 8 breast tenderness started NEVER after AF ( hmm this isn't usual for me, o well maybe I lifted something heavy & muscles sore ) 

July: 9 Sex & Breast still sore ( Ewe white thick discharge my husband notices during sex. He said he's never seen that during sex before w me.) We questioned what it could be and went on bout our day. I had no itching or burning before or after.

July: 10 Still discharging & Breast hurt me more than ever before. But now on n off light cramps are setting in. (WTH? It's not close to my period.) 

July: 12 Breast still hurt, feel heavy, and now sleeping in bra to keep from them hurting so bad at night. 

July: 14 Sex and AGAIN discharge. I'm getting embarrassed now. ALSO blue veins have appeared. They run all around my breast, behind nipple I see them, and running half way up towards my collar bones before they disappear. Very visible early morning and late night. 

Other "pregnancy" symptoms that hv started in last few days: HUNGER, dull headache in back of head behind ears, low back pain keeping me tossing around in bed, can't get enough sleep, emotional (crying spells), Coffee smells bad (3 days wo it now) i think about it through day and want it but cant handle drinking it. Having crazyyyyyy dreams! Even accused hubby of wanting other pretty women (not me at all to accuse him) I'm getting jealous >:( ... 

My breast are the main factor in feeling like I'm pregnant. They have small to large soft lumps throughout them now. I know what a pregnancy feels like. I have 2 teens and had 2 miscarriages. Last miscarriage was 3 yrs ago. I'm now 34 and wondering if this could all be my harmonies since I'm getting older. 

For heavens sake tho, I cried yesterday cuz McDonald's forgot to put cheese on my biscuit. 

I'm 12 days from AF showing up again. Took 2 hpt and a bfn :(. I know it's early, but would all these symptoms be here this soon? Or was my periods that short for a reason? Plus today is first day to vomit. My pb&j for lunch come right up. Afterwards felt better. No more sickness.

I inserted a photo to show how may breast have changed. Not nude. Is this normal w hormonal issues if I'm not pG? Wish you could see how my stomach has blows up. I look 4 months pg. it's been 90-95 degrees here and I been wearing a hoodie to town to cover my belly. I feel humiliated. 

Sorry so long, but wanted all the facts strait...... Ivy

Actual symptoms or all in my head

Hello, 

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 today...no 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...
