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!

First 2WW Second cycle of 2013

So this is my first cycle TTC while charting and only my second cycle of the entire year!

It's kind of a long story but I became irregular at the end of 2011 (Nov.) then I stopped getting a period in 2012, the sad part was that DH and I decided to stop using BC. So every month AF didn't show I thought I was pregnant but that was not the case for me. Before that, I was like clock work every single month, I knew my cycle. I know now that it was my weight that was effecting me so I lost some weight and I'm continuing to do so. It is currently June and I'm down 50+ lbs!

Now I'm becoming regular again and Ovulating! Currently 5 DPO according to Fertility Friend.

I've been trying to keep track daily of my symptoms.

3 DPO: Feeling sore on my arms and lower back. This could be from working out. Breasts are feeling heavy again like last month, could this be a new PMS symptom for me?

4 DPO: Weird CM! I never get CM externally but I noticed in the AM a lot of creamy lotion CM.  Later in the day I continued to check and it became more like pieces of gel that weren’t stretchy. The consistency went back to a very creamy cm towards evening.  Other symptoms: tender breasts, slight vertigo in the evening.

5 DPO: CP is very low and soft! There is a ton of creamy lotion CM again! Breasts are no longer tender but they look more full and rounder. (workouts?) Kind of feeling gassy today and that is very bizzare for me.


I'm pretty excited about this cycle because I'm feeling and noticing different things. However, I'm also mildly skeptical because I'm not sure if it's just my body getting back to where it was before I became irregular or if we are actually making our baby :)


keep calm ..

Infertility Talk ....

*first post*


Welcome to our ttc journey ....

We had been trying to conceive for close to a year, due to hubbys medical past ((testicular cancer when 17)) we decided to get a SA done ... results were below normal on everything .. more importantly his motility was <10% :(  his Dr. recommended we have an initial fertility consultation with my OBGY ...

June 10th - after a referral by my OB, our first visit with our RE Dr. Karande.  Arrived. Super nervous not knowing what to expect ... settled down when i realized how nice everyone was. After waiting for 45 minutes they finally take us back. First get an u/s to check my ovaries, everything checked out ok! Hubby a lil uncomfortable since he was in there seeing a lil too much of my goodies i guess hahaha. Finally go back and talk to Dr. Karande and he explains how he is very concerned about the motility factor in the DH SA - originally we thought we were going to go and talk our possibilities of IUI since that was what my OB had recommended. So when the Dr. starts talking about pills, injections, egg retreival and transfer i was a lil taken back because i was totally not expecting that. After he goes through the whole process of trying to conceive via IVF "any questions?" ummm... heck yea!! I hadn't researched enough about IVF since my time was consumed following blogs about IUI.

Now our next step....wait for AF to arrive .... i've never wanted her to get here as bad as i do now! && hubby going in for some deposits ... in case the day of there aren't any good to choose from.


Until next time ...
