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!

Counting the chickens before they hatch… I know

I know I’m jumping to conclusions here… but…. It’s 16 dpo and ive never gotten to this far in the dpo numbers.  AF usually comes at 15 dpo or maybe even 14 dpo.


The last month I had AF right on time and then found out I was pg AFTER AF… with low numbers that resulted in a mc.


This time around AF is due today (I guess) and still BFN and I’m just waiting for af which should be around the corner…. Juuussstt waiting.


My big fear and what this post is about… is suppose history repeats itself and I find out I’m pg AFTER af again… and have it result in another mc… that would be TERRIBLE.  I’m still a mess from the mc I just went through.


I know it’s counting the chickens before they have hatched… I haven’t got af yet and it surely isn’t after af where I would find out I’m pg.. but still it’s on my mind.


If that IS the case is there anything at this point that I could do to help that not happen?


I REALLY do not think this is one of those cases where I’ll test tomorrow or the day after (and not get af yet) and get a bfp a couple days after af was due… at least that’s not how my body has ever worked in the past?  I had some pinkish stringy stuff appear while wiping last night so I’ve been on af high alert.  I had some of that clear with little milky cloudy spots in it this morning.


AHH!  Anyone have anything for me?


ps also.. i have tried to post in the forum before but had no luck... what am i doing wrong there?  Do you need yet another log in to do that?

Is this a Pos OPK?!

I am on CD 12 today and This is the darkest opk yet. I started testing on CD 9, I got this with my FMU and had no time to BD this am, so we are going to BD tonight and for the next 3-4 days in hopes!!! Adding pre seed in the mix , I am anxious!!! I do not want to have missed my window!!!

10 dpo... hurry up friday!

Well i woke up this morning and felt deflated... Literally... I had no cramps! Ive been on and off cramping for days! I am still really really thirstyball of the time... And peeing a lot do to all the water... I did have very very mild AF cramps at work today... So I'm not sure if I'm in or out this cycle... I did test this morning with a digital... Bfn.. I know its a little early so I'm just gonna wait now! 


Still no signs of sore BBS, or back pain or anything I would have imagined to be normal... I'm just thirsty forgetful and bitchy... I'll be lucky if my hubs talks to me when he gets home! 

Am I pregnant!!!

i posted earlier about my symptoms but Idk how to check any comments. Well here's my tww story. I'm 25 & my cycles are 35-36. dh & I bd on the 13 15 & 16. I believe I o'd on the 17th or 18th. Well my symptoms started around 5-6dpo mild cramps very tired & mild sore bbs. Around 7dpo Ive been very gassy. & headaches come & go. forgot that symptom on my other post. 8dpo I've experience some leg cramps & every morning I wake up to a stuffy nose & sneezing. Stuff nose subsides later. Just sneezing through out the day. & at night I get a stuff nose. this morn I check my cervix after experiencing this burning sensation in my lower abdomen. & my cf is soft and cp is mid high. Expecting period today or tomorrow morning. dont wanna test till the witch shows her ugly face. But I would like to know what y'all think. Baby Dust to everyone & hope we get a BFP ;) 

i do get sore bbs before af. or spot a day before she arrives & that has not happen this cycle. Which is odd. Been a little extra sweet with DH lol not to moody. Will see

positive OPK but no CM

i had a miscarriage in june, taken OPK's and nothing. my dr put me on clomid 50mg days 5-9 this month. i took clear blue OPK got a flashing smiley face for days 11 through 14. than got a solid smiley on day 15 through 17. but my question is i never noticed any CM. is that normal after Clomid? than for the heck of it today i took another OPK and it was just a plain circle. We BD 12 through 17 i hope it worked without any CM.

I don't know what's going on! Help!

I had a miscarriage 9/17 I stoped bledding 9/20. On 9/18 I started actually feeling pregnant. Since we have had unprotected sex 8 times yes we decided to go ahead and try I was only 3 weeks pregnant so I had no restrictions. I havnt ever stopped feeling pregnant my levels was at 8.1 so doctor didn't wanna check them again. So I'm wondering did I even miscarry or am I done pregnant again. It's only been two weeks so I havnt tested again

15 DPO

AF is due today or tomorrow as my cycle is 27 or 28 days usually.  However, I had a natural mc at 6 weeks or less last month so I guess i'm not really sure.  I did ovulate right on time on day 12 if I count the first day of mc bleeding as cd 1 though.

Been testing all weekend of course and all BFNs.  I ovulated (positive opk) on September 15 and we BD the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th. 

Because it's still bfn i feel like there really is no hope this time around.  I was REALLY hoping there was something to that whole more fertile after a mc thing.  I do know there isn't really anything to back that up... but i was hoping anyway.

I had a little cramping on Sept 25 (last wed cd 22 or 10dpo) and then more cramping Sept 26 (cd 23 or 11dpo) and was also dizzy once that day when I stood up.  On Sept 27 I had a bad headache that I woke up with.

I feel like 10-11 dpo is pretty late for implantation right?  So I feel like it's pre af cramping instead of pg.

I don't really feel like af is coming which is weird... but like I said i'm not quite sure when to expect af.  If af comes 12-16 days after ovulation.  So, the earliest i should have gotten it was Friday... and the latest is tomorrow.  

Yeah, i'm going a little nuts.

2 WW 2nd pregnancy - no symptoms

I have read these boards many times over the last couple of months while we've tried to conceive our second. I felt that I wanted to post to help those of you in your 2WW as it's helped me reading others' experiences. Also, both my 2WW have been very different and this one has been pretty much symptomless. 

With my first, I'd guessed i was preg as my clues were swollen boobs (not normal for me), nausea and a late period.

After falling pregant instantly the first time with DD, this time it took us several months and I was starting to think something was wrong.

This month had little to no symptoms at all, felt no different, and I have even beenrunning  my usual 3-5 mile x 3 times a week during the 2WW!! I did struggle with my running, feeling tired  a bit more during the second week but put it down to AF's imminent arrival. 

I would say say the only symptoms I've had this time, if any, is possible extra over emotional, anxiety & upset. I felt a small feeling,  almost like a tiny lightening bolt in my uterus one about 8 says ofter ov but ignored it as I'd felt similar feelings in previous months! Basically I kept watching for my period, but nothing arrived. I was absolutely adament AF was coming as it felt completely the same as normal (have evenbeen having a few glasses of wine as definitely thought I was out this month!). When I was a couple of days over due I felt like my nipples were very, very slightly tender But that's it! No nausea, nothing! 

We've had a busy couple of weeks with being away and DD being ill so maybe I've missed some symptoms. But I just wanted to post to tell you that you don't always have obvious symptoms like I did the with my first pregnancy. 

Help! Am I having a miscarriage?

I have been going crazy since my first positive test on 12dpo with frer it was very faint, then on 13dpo used answer and got another 2 faint positives, on 14dpo used digital clearblue easy it was negative, on 15dpo tested again with frer got 2 more positive tests with a darker line than before. On Friday and Saturday I had some pink discharge and I don't know whether I'm having a miscarriage or what's going on. Can anyone help?
