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!

Prayers Needed!

Gee, I now sound needy! But if you can spare a prayer or two for me, I will truly appreciate it.

You see, I had my baseline check today and while my uterine lining is perfect at 3.4mm, the clinician found a 17mm follicle in my left ovary. This is despite being on BCP and Lupron. 

We're praying that the follicle is empty and my E2 is low. If it is, I can start the estradiol pills and proceed with the uterine lining check on 8/14. From there we will know if I can finally proceed with ET.

Thanks for praying. Blessings to all!

ttc since february.

Hey everyone guess it's time to vent. My fiance and I have been ttc since February. In january I stopped taking seasonale after having taken it for year. I had really hoped to just snap back to normal and of course I didn't. We tried the ovulation kits and no outcome until I quit that after getting so irritated. About two months ago I was 3 days late on my period and got excited only for af to show up. So this month I'm more around 6 days late have had brown spotting when I wipe that is now gone. Still negative pregnancy test. Have tested everyday just because it makes me feel crazy when I don't lol. However my mom and my aunt both couldnt get bfp until they were 3 months pregnant? So I guess I hope that's all it is. Anyway just need to vent I know it can take up to a year it's just hard seeing what seems like everyone around me having babies on "accident" or complaining about it while we are trying very hard. I'm 20 and my fiance is 23 on Friday. Thanks for listening I'm doing this mobile post so I'm not sure where it's posting.. anyway any advice anyone to talk to is much appreciated 

Trust My Doctor? Or Victoria's Secret?

Hello Everyone,

I'm so glad I found this site - it's become my secret obsession, and I love reading all your posts. I wish you ladies had your own practice so I could be your patient! Anyway, I am 44 and DH and I are ttc for the first time. Yes, late bloomers here. I am in excellent health, got my bloodwork results the last week, and was thrilled to discover that the baby factory is still open. My gyno has a huge practice that has a specialty in ART. Here's where I am confused:

I first went for a consult with my gyno, and of course he gave me all the grim statistics for my age - difficulty conceiving, chance of m/c, complications, chromosomal abnormalities, etc. Most of all, he emphasized that at this point, we would have to be very aggressive in our approach. This was before my bloodwork was done.

Flash forward a few weeks, and I'm on the phone with the nurse. She reports that my hormone levels are "beautiful" and "excellent" - no reason not to just go for it. I ask her what's next, and she tells me to relax and buy some sexy lingerie. I want to know if the doc wants to see me, so that we can plan this "aggressive approach", but she says that there's nothing to do at this point except "let go and let God."

Now, maybe this is one of those times when one should simply take yes for an answer. It is true that DH and I have not exactly been ttc. I've been charting my cycle for the last two years, doing OPKs, so I know when I ovulate. It's clockwork. And when I look back on my Period Log, I see that we have really *not* been BDing during my fertile time. If anything, we've been avoiding that week. I think - I'm not sure - that the doctor knows this. The truth is, every time I go there, it's like the first time. I have no idea if he's reviewed my chart or even taken note of the fact that we haven't really tried yet. I know you're supposed to give it a certain amount of months before they pronounce you in need of help, and that the older you are, the shorter that time should be - ie, in your 20s, you try for a year, and if no result, time for technology. At my age, I understand the window is muuuuch shorter. 3 months, as my doc tells it.

But here's the thing: I'm a little concerned that he didn't even want to see me. I feel a little paranoid, like he's writing me off. Like, "if this old broad can conceive, fine, but I want no part of what rough beast might spring from her ancient womb..." 

I guess I'm a little pensive, because AF is supposed to arrive on Sat/Sun. This is our second cycle of TTC. We DTD every other day the week of my O. I'm doing acupuncture, taking maca, green drink, Mucinex, Pre-Seed, lying still for 1 hour after sex...throwing everything at this, basically. Oh, and of course, wearing my sexy lingerie!

Desperately hoping for a miracle. Thanks for taking the time to read. Baby dust to all you wonderful women.

 

 

My hubby's reaction tonight.....

So tonight right after we BD'd (TMI I know, I'm sorry) my husband mentions that "it just felt different!" He says that he feels as though things were "tilted" down there. I'm 8 or 9dpo. Have any of you ladies experienced anything like this when ttc? Hmmmm..... 

 

 

Is anybody out there?

lol I feel lonely! No one's commented on my previous blog and I wanted to hear people's feedback! Wah lol

 

Confusing Body

The last two days my body has been extremely confusing! three days ago I had some cramping then a brownish pink discharge, the next day there hours of cramping with heavier bleeding then nothing for the rest of the night and then yesterday the exact same thing, and now I'm waiting to see what happens today. I'm not suppose to start AF until this Saturday and I'm NEVER early! My thought is its implantation bleeding! Sore boobs as well! Has anyone else ever experienced this roller coaster with their body before getting BFP?

OPK Results - Help would be great!

Yesterday I had what I think is a positive test results on a OPK.  We BD last night.  Today I tested and the line is lighter.

What does this mean?

i feel like we did it!

started AF on 7/08.

saw faint line on opk stick on 7/20 and full positive on 7/21

DD on 7/19-7/22, also 7/24

O day, felt twinges and pinching pain on rgt side of uterus

continued through the 24th (dpo2) which then moved to the middle

dpo3-light lower back cramps, bouts of nausea

5dpo-rgt BBS especially under armpit,insomnia

7dpo-still have BBS(right side) also felt major tightening in uterus(almost like BH) continued for hours

8dpo- woke up at 5am with cramping located on right side ovary, unmistakeable

 

Cycle 3

Round 3 ding ding ding!

Current Cycle Day: 4

Not really much to say here apart from waiting for AF to finish soon. Will update when necessary!

I'm totally freaking out!

Today I am between 7 and 8 dpo..... around 5 dpo I noticed I spotted in the early moring! This really got my hopes up! I've had a couple other "symptoms" (sudden but mild waives of nausea, cramping, crying for stupid reasons, and mild lower back pains!) All of these symptoms have had me really excited the last few days, but today out of the blue while watching TV with my hubby, I noticed a twinge on my left side... it continued for a few minutes and got a bit stronger and more noticable. All of a sudden a rush of fear and worry flooded my body! I started to think, "omg what if I'm getting ready to have a period, or a miscarriage" This is our first month TTC so I'm really confused and lost =( I want this to happen with all of my heart, but idk what to think now!
