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!

BFN 9-13dpo BFP 15dpo

So excited to be writing this! Here's the run down: 

3dpo- lower abdominal pain/cramping, headache, and gums bled a little while flossing (which is strange because I'm a dental assistant and have healthy gums)

4&5dpo- lower abdominal cramps still

6dpo- cramps gone, slight lower back ache, VIVID dream about DH getting dreadlocks hah!

7&8dpo- nothing

9dpo- vivid BFP dream, woke up decided to real not to test- BFN on IC ):, still lower back pain, sore nips (AF symptom for me, thought I was out)

10dpo- heartburn, BFN on IC

11,12,&13dpo- BFN on FRER

14dpo- woke up with AF like cramps so didn't test, was sure she was coming ):

15dpo- no cramping or sore nips, but bb's sore on sides so decide to test with clear blue digi (my mom got me a box for my b-day haha!) and BFP!

all you ladies hoping for "late" BFPs don't lose hope! I got nothing until the day AF was expected!

 

Someone please help! Early ovulation?

Hi, I had a very light and brown AF from last thursday to tuesday while on holiday. Can anyone advise why i would get this ov test today at only CD7?! Sorry the pic is blurry, the line is the darkest i have had so far! I think ov occurred at CD23 last month! Any insight would be great! I took a pg test straight after that had an incredibly faint almost imaginary line and had neg test on sunday. Thanks everyone!

help please!

I went to my ob gyn the other day and he put me on clomid 50mg and metformin. Hopefully I start my own cycle but if not then I start provera also. Hoping it works on the first cycle. Me and dh have been trying for a year now. Ready for my bfp! Should I use preseed too? What does preseed do?

Can you see it?

I am 5dp5dt today. Can you please confirm that I am not imagining the second line, lol!

Am I seeing things part 2

Aaargh Wondfo! Even if these things turn out to be right, I'm still not buying them again. There's just so much guessing and potential heartache involved :( I did three tests this morning at 11 dpo with the same urine sample. All of them came back with a second line but with greatly varying degrees of darkness. Also, I don't think the test lines appeared clearly until slightly after 5 minutes, but before 10 minutes (directions say to read at 5 minutes). I was so stressed, I woke DH up at 6:30, handed him a red solo cup, and said "I need you to pee in this." After his initial response of, "What? NO!" he begrudgingly agreed. I felt a little better when he got a clear bfn, lol.

All the tests in the picture are lined up in order of when I took them. The first one at 8dpo is a bfn, and the next 2 were taken at 10 dpo, the darker one with fmu and the other one with more diluted urine in the evening. The next three were this morning at 11 dpo with the same sample.

I'm going crazy. I think I'll test with a FRER tomorrow, but I'm scared of a bfn, especially since AF isn't due until Tuesday.

Please let me know what you think! Thank you so so much! :)

disappointed:(

15 dpo today and took bbt ,its gone down :( so I think AF will be on its way I guess.I'm out this month.so disappointed.did everything right this month but still..........

 

Aug 13 lap all normal, TTC 3.5 yrs

Hi Ladies,

I have joined today. We have been TTC since 3.5 yrs without any luck. I'm 32 and DH too. All is normal and hence we have unexplained infertility. I had suspected left tube block and got diagonsed with IR this Jan so was asked To go a diagonistic lap. I had lap and dye 2 days ago. Both ovaries r normal and tubes are patent. DH acrosome was 4% but doc say they dont matter much. Now what should we consider next - natural/IUI? Any other suggestion, i'm getting disheartened :(

Nauseous during ovulation

Today is cd 17 and still no positive OPk. I'm on a 34 cycle two my app says I should ovulate this weekend but I feel like I am now? Sharp boob pain, lower back pain, acne, and nausea. Anyone else have these symptoms that tell them theyre ovulating? I guess it's a good thig I don't know when I ovulated then I won't be obsessing about symptoms every day. Last month I had sore bbs and lower back pain from ovulation to AF 

Chemical Pregnancy Heartbreak

My husband and I have been trying for baby #3 for 13 months now. I have been on this site for over a year, obsessing over all of the wonderful BFP stories, gaining insight on supplements to take and comparing my symptoms every month. I am not going to go on without saying how truly blessed I am to have my two little boys. I did not have any troubles getting pregant with them and realize that I am incredibly lucky. We did want a third though! We talked about it last July over our 5th year anniversary dinner! The year went by with nothing; friends went on to have babies and I kept blabbing about our desire to have another, but nothing. Because I am 37, and I have a lower AMH, I kept in touch with my OBGYN, who kept giving me the info for the RE, but I never called. I finally just met with him last month and it was the biggest turn off. I am sitting across from a doctor who is telling me we should just skip to IVF (before tests are run) because it is the most cost effective route. Nevermind the first thing he said to me..."You do know how much this intitial appointment is going to cost?" Our health insurance covers nothing to do with infertility. Fast forward to five days ago....I was just hoping I was pregnant, like every other month. I had my WONDFO stock and I was using it. Started using the pregnancy tests around 8dpo. I have to say, I began to have faint lines around 9dpo...past the 5 min mark. Hmmmm....I know evaporation lines so even though there was a glimmer of hope, I knew it was not possible. But as the days passed by, the evaps started looking light pink and came up within the time limit. No way! So around 11 or 12dpo, I felt like I could finally spend the money on a FRER to see what was up! OMG, I got a solid line on a FRER! It is really happening again-I was so excited, hopeful, thankful, etc! Wanted to take that FRER and shove it up the RE's butt! The next day we were on our way to my in-laws. Took another test before we went...FRER still the same...solid line. Now, I would never tell my in-laws so early, but they were going to see that I was not drinking, and I always love my glass or two of wine! So the first night we are there, we tell them. Take a FRER the next day...same solid line. The in-law trip continues, and the pregnancy has got everyone feeling great-talking about the future and how this little bean is already apart of everything. I feel fantastic...(maybe that is a clue). Next day, I call my OBGYN to schedule an appt. for when we get back. I tell the nurse that I am nervous because my FRER lines are the same and not getting darker. She assures me that I should not worry AT ALL and not to spend any money on more tests. Okay, fine although my instinct is telling me that my tests should be getting darker. We end up going to target and I somehow sneak another FRER purchase. I have held my pee for hours and I am convinced I am going to get that dark line. Get back to the in-laws after a 4 hour hold. The line this time has taken longer to show up and OMG, it is significantly lighter. It takes my breath away. I just know. I am on all of these forums, I get it. Go down to dinner with in-laws where they toast to our pregnancy...everyone clinks and I am ready to freak out. Next AM, same thing, line so faint you can barely see it. We finally get back home from our in-laws and I go to my already scheduled Dr. appt. Negative urine test (was diluted) and they take blood. I had a faint positive FRER from that morning. I told myself that it is done, over, dream becomes nightmare....deal with it like all of these other incredible women do. Slight sliver of hope, but prepare myself. Call today (because heck, why the hell would the nurse want to beat you to it) and they say my blood test was not only zero, but "less than zero" (whatever the "f" that means). Started bleeding today. I have come to peace with this and my husband and I realize how much we want this, so we will move forward. Just wanted to share. I truly know what a miracle a healthy pregnancy and baby is and can't wait to experience it agian! xoxo

Finally my BFP!!!

I posted earlier about the please tell me you can see it too!! Today I took two digital tests and both came back positive!! We have been TTC for six months after going thru a natural miscarriage at only 7weeks. Hopefully this litte peanut sticks!!
