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!

TTC #2 after iud removed

this would be my first blog I've done since try to conceive beginning in December so here is my story to catch you up......

we began ttcing our first back in 2007 like the end of 2007 we had no problems getting pregnant the problem I had was keeping the pregnancy I mc my first at 8 weeks in 2007 then we got preg again in the beginning of 2008 that one was a surprise being the fact that I was on bc but we lost that one within two weeks of being pg then we got pg again but wound up losing that one too thats when we decided to rest a little. Then in oct of 2008 we decided to try again low and behold in nov we conceived and found out we were pg the day of our wedding on dec 5 2008 well it turned out my body wasn't producing enough progesterone to keep the pregnancy going so with this pregnancy the drs right away put me on progesterone and low and behold it worked on July 24th of 2009 6:30 pm we welcomed our beautiful baby girl Isabella into the world and she's been going strong ever since.....

after that in September we decided after the long road we went for our baby girl that I was gonna go on bc I didn't want to do the pill cause I was not good at remembering to take them so I decided to get the iud BIG MISTAKE for the first year I didn't notice any change just that it was good bc so i thought well for years two and three my moods changed I was always losing my patience getting crazy angry when if u were to know me I'm a really patient person it takes alot for me to get angry my periods were even worse more painful heavier just all around horrible even the sex was getting painful (sorry tmi lol) so I told my husband that I couldn't do it anymore I had to get it out and so I began that journey I had no insurance what so ever and who would of thought a simple 2 second procedure would cost so much so I decided to do what I shouldn't but it was my only other option and come to find its the same thing the drs would have done so on November 26th 2012 I took the little booger out at home and this is where our ttc began 

my cycles were the same on and off the iud so I had no trouble there but now here I am 7 months later with no luck or so I think right now but that's for another blog lol but this is my story and I will continue to keep u guys in the loop here's to all of you out there waiting on your bfps

11 dpo @ 18.30 after the 'spot' : Watery Discharge & more ewcm

help with trigger shot info.

Good morning,

I am hoping that someone can give me some advice.  I have been TTC for 26 months.  My cycles have been very irregular lately and I had to quit trying at times bc of cysts on my ovaries.  Well, we BD on Sunday 6/23 on my day 14.  My monitor said high fertility.  I was scheduled for an ultrasound on day 15 because we came to the conclusion I was ovulating later in my cycle.  Guess what? I had an awesome follicle on my right side.  My left side is completely blocked:( I was ecstatic because this rarely happens.  So, I got the trigger shot on day 15, Monday.  They said no intercourse that day, wait until Tuesday.  Well, Tuesday-- our air conditioner went out and water everywhere, so we were stuck cleaning that and did not get to BD:( My first surge showed on Saturday and I still had not ovulated at 9:00 a.m. Monday morning.  Two ?'s:  Let's say I was going to ovulate naturally on Monday.  Will the shot prolong it until Tuesday or would I have ovulated since I was probably going to any way.  Alos, since we didn't BD in that 36 hour time frame, do I still have a shot?  I have also been on 100 mg of Clomid and 1500 Metformin.  I am still cramping day four after shot.  I didn't start cramping until early Wednesday morning.

We are actively trying!

I could just jump out of my skin!!!!!


I have waited the 2 longest, hardest years of my life for this, and I don’t want to miss a single second!

A new beginning...


We are going to start trying this cycle!

I know he thinks I am crazy…I have scheduled every day close to ovulation…but I have been waiting 2 years for this. He has only just begun this journey.

I am so afraid. The last time we did this, my body was almost 9 years younger. I was so sick, every second, of every day, for the entire 9 months of both pregnancies.

Will it be that way again?

Will I still be able to make it to sports practices? School events?

Will it happen at all?

Where will I fit all that stuff?

How will I cope if it does not happen?

The questions are deafening.


I have never been so excited!
