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!

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!

Here we go!

I have given up coffee, and diet soda.

I have added 8 servings of fruits and veggies to my daily diet.

I have begun an exercise regimen.

I am ready!



5/29/2013- First Prenatal Vitamin!

From Miscarriage to Misery to Motherhood

June 31 will be the 2 yr anniversary of my miscarriage.

They called it a ‘complication’ of the IUD.

She (?) was not a complication, but a blessing. I didn’t even know (or wouldn’t dare admit)

that I even wanted another baby, until I thought that I was going to have one.

From then on, everything changed.

I was no longer the same person that I had been days, weeks, months, before.

They called it PTSD. I called it Hell.

The worst part was that my husband did not want another child. We would not be trying to recreate the

miraculous little life that was taken from me, and I was devastated.

 FAst forward 2 horrible years...

My DH is ready to try again!

In fact, he’s become excited about it!

My heart is overjoyed!


So here we go!
