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!


Ok well Saturday mornin & my bag of cheapy tests arrive- Ok so Im only 6 dpo and I know that Im just setting myself up for a fall but hey ho 1 x BFN. Its way too early but somehow just POA kind of makes me feel like I'm doing something other than waiting. (IDIOT)

But my temp rose this morning to 36.97 / 98.54 - but then all that tells me is that progesterone is clearly doing its job. Still no nausea, no sore boobs (I have leaky ones but that is as a result of raised prolactin before we even did anything so that definatley doesnt count) So still here, no symptoms- am going to stay positive, afterall I have just had 2 months of no ovulating so im glad my body is getting back into the swing of things. Oh I'd love to be able to post over in my BFP 2ww symptoms lol.

Help please! :)

My dh (26) and I (27) have been ttc for a few months. I have regular 28 day cycles. I do not know exactly when I ovulate as I do not take my temp or really track my cm yet. May 29th was the start of my last period. So according to that I was told I most likely ovulated on June 12th. My dh works out of town so we only could BD on June 13th at 5:30am. I layed in bed with a pillow under my bottom until 10:00am. We did use a little KY Jelly which I now know isn't a good idea. I had cm though too. Here are my symptoms...

2-3 dpo: very gassy. I had a rumble in my lower stomach like never before too. It was not at the same time as the gas. 

4dpo: sharp excruciating pain in stomach for 5 seconds only.

6dpo: body and back ache

7dpo: this is when I think implantation occurred! :) I had pain in my uterus for several hours. It was like nothing I have ever felt. Not like AF cramps at all. More sharp and on the left hand side. I also had these very low stomach rumbles again. Sore left nipple only.

8dpo: I woke up with such sore legs I couldn't get out of bed! They ached and I had a full 8 hours of sleep!? I had a back ache, head ache, body ache and cramps. Sore left nipple.

9dpo: BFN at first urination in the morning. Using equate one step pregnancy test with the purple cap. *The reason I mention this is that I have read conflicting answers for how much hcg it takes to work, one site said 25, another said 100! Big difference! It's not on the box. Sore left nipple. 

I am unsure which nights, but I have had several nights of crazy dreams and nightmares too. This rarely normally happens. Also milky cm since ovulation. 

Any insight would be great! Thank you! :) 


I want more symptoms :(

Well I had a weird month leading up to this.... I had a 54 day annovulatory cycle, my doc ran some tests and the only thing weird was a raised prolactin level ?? so Im due to have another round of tests done in a couple of weeks. THEN I had a weird one day bleed on the 5th June so I counted that as CD1. I then get sharp ovulating pain on CD11- I think Noooo its way to early but I poa opk and low and behold it was positive !! now me and hubby had bd the night before and he was pulling a 12 hour shift so I could only hope that there would be swimmers waiting. Now 1 dpo-5dpo I have had constant lower backache. I had a confirmed ovulation with bbt and every day 1-5 temps have risen. Im sat here thinking is that a twinge in my boob ?? I had a couple of dull cramps on my right side but theyve gone. none of it is enough for me to even get remotely excited about. Other than that NOTHING !! I am just praying that tomo morning brings another high temp or a bit of nausea or just something :( Anyone else want to obsess over lack of symptoms ?? GL to all of you xx

Driving me crazy

I had intercourse once during my fertile time this month (Friday the 14) and since then have had a lot of nausea and cramps but don't want to read too much into it as I know it is too soon to know anything. Please keep fingers crossed I am pregnant. I will say this: since last week my nausea has been worse, my breasts hurt and are lactating (which is very weird), I've been using the bathroom more, and had a sharp pain shoot through my ribs early in the morning. Idk, just odd. If anyone else is experiencing any of these please let me know I am not crazy lol. I am praying for all of you that you get the results you want :)


Good afternoon!!

So after yesterdays post - a lot has changed!

Well I did in fact get the go to start my birth control yesterday! 

As mentioned before, I did have my HSG test scheduled for July 1st but my Drs. and staff were able to squeeze me in for an appt with the other Dr. next week !! yay! soo happy! First of all because I feel like it'll help me get through the process, i don't know if i could have gone one whole week without getting anything tested or done!

Also, my nurse consult appointment is scheuled for the 27th! Here is were i will learn about all the medications i will be taking, when i will start taking them and for how long! Exciting to finally have a timeline too and get an idea when ER and ET will be happening :D Who knew i'd be so excited to take meds, although ask me 2 days into the shots and im sure ill be excited to get it over with!

The hubby && i also booked our lil getaway before the madness begins! We'll be heading to Vegas with another couple! They are celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary and invited us to go! So im excited to get some relaxation in before i get moody, sad and crampy all at the same time haha

Here's hoping our next vacation will be with a new little one <3

Until next time ... xox

trying to conceive

Any tips for me?

TWW 11DPIUI BFN... Could it change?

Morning... I am trying to stay positive on this tww. I am 11DPIUI and I couldn't help myself and tested this morning with a BFN. IS there any hope that this could be the month?

The "two week wait" that has a light at the end of the tunnel?...maybe.

Hi all!

I had my Doctors appointment yesterday to discuss my U/S results. She went through the meaning of all that was looked at during the scan and I was told that everything pretty much looked as she expected them to. So they have ruled out PCOS (what a relief - I didn't need that mountain to climb too) because my ovaries both look good and had no abnormalities and looked to be functioning correctly. I have a slightly thin endometrium but this is likely because I have not had an AF in so long and that I have not been ovulating - thus it never replenishes itself.

I was feeling rather relieved at that prognosis but now without a stepping stone to help us conceive our beautiful baby!

Thankfully she then discussed our next steps; Hubby has to have a SA, I have been told to get a 21 day progesterone, E2 and FSH level test... Though because I do not currently have my AF have been told to just do it as soon as I can and they will treat the results accordingly.

TBH I have no idea why she didn't order all the tests at the time of booking my U/S seeing as now I have to wait for another appointment (I am booked in next Thursday 27/06/13) to do those and it is only delaying things! :0( It feels like Dr's can't even comprehend how anxious you are during this time to just get things started, especially with infertility issues.

I now have only one worry - Yesterday I started spotting and today I have been cramping and have a light AF (can tell it is AF because there are small clots - sorry tmi!) My dilemma is that I am unsure whether to tell my Dr. If I tell her, I'm afraid that she might see this as my body regulating itself and therefore stall any futher help... But if I don't I'm afraid that it may skew any prognosis that she may think she has. What should I do?!!! Arrrgh! Decisions decisions.... Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated ladies :0)

Love and lots of Baby Dust xxxx


Update: I have just had a text message from DH's cousin (basically like a brother to us) - his gf of 6 months is pregnant. Sigh

He rang me and I congratulated him and am genuinely excited for him because I love him to bits... but now I have just hit a BIG low. I am at work (thankfully no boss in today!) and I feel like I want to cry. This is huge news and something that I would be horrendously happy about, were I not currently struggling with fertility issues. I have no idea what to do with myself, I desperately want to speak to hubby but he is at work and I have no way of contacting him... I just want to curl up in a ball.

Pffffft - why does life hurt so much sometimes? 

Don't know whether to be excited or nervous

So today has been 6 weeks and 3 days since my early miscarriage. I was 5 weeks along and had a natural miscarriage. The bleeding only lasted 6 days and suspected I would get my period as normal... My Hcg levels dropped quickly as I only had an Hcg level of 66 when I found out I would miscarry. 


For the past week I have been testing everyday because I haven't had my period yet. Today I tested a faint positive on a cheapy dollar tree test! Naturally I am very excited but I'm also terrified to be excited because last month my fiancé and I were so excited and not even a week later ourexcitement was ripped out from under us.

Lets hope this little bean sticks and is here for the stay<3



Implantation Bleeding while breastfeeding?

Hi all~

Ok, I am obsessing over the tww at the moment...My story...

I am currently breastfeeding my 11 month old son.  Af returned at 6 months pp and have been pretty regular.  I believe I am currently 9 DPO.  

O day: DH and I bd'd on O day and he "pulled out' (sorry TMI).  

4-6 DPO: I started to spot, brownish/dark red for 2 days. Aahhh..I am going crazy with all the lower abd twinges and mild cramps on and off. The spotting was maybe one tbls or so over the two days (TMI again!)

7-9 DPO: All BFn's so far with cvs early result brand and dollar store test (POAS addict) How can I get my mind off this crazy business?!?!

Has anyone had spotting while breastfeeding? did you end up being pregnant? 

If you did have implantation bleeding, was was it like? Please describe! (TMI okay by me :))

I almost forgot...I was at Mimi's Cafe yesterday and I smelled PEE in the hallway before the bathroom...and I actually told the manager!!! I am so embarassed now that I think about it.  But it smelled so strong at the time :-/
