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 1 year after mc clomid 150mg 2nd round 3-7

I am currently on cycle day 23 and I think I am about 10dpo...I had two + ov tests on days 12 and 13...I don't want to test yet but I need some far I am running to the ladies room a lot more frequently, my breasts are very tender and a little swollen, my nipples are very erect and very very tender which is not normal for me (tmi im sorry), I have very noticeable blue veins all over my chest and legs, full feeling in lower tummy, sharp pains like ov that runs through my whooha, stuffy nose, mild backache, temp went up in lower 98's, and very creamy large amounts of cm all day... I don't ever remember seeing it this way. Im just very unsure that Im paying too close attention to my body. Could this be just the clomid giving me all these symptoms? Baby dust to all!!!

Feeling Hopeless

This is my first time blogging on this site.  Here is my story.

DH and I have been married for 6 and a half years.  We got married young (December of 2006) and therefore decided to wait to ttc until he was done with his Master's degree and found a decent job.  I had stopped getting any sort of regular cycle about 4 years ago.  Even if I did get a period it was very light.  My primary doctor at the time associated my light/non-existent cycles to the bcp I was on. 

Fast forward to January 2012.  I stopped my bcp in anticipation for ttc.  No period come April 2012.  My primary doctor sends me to a RE after Progestin withdrawl test failed to initiate a cycle.  She recommended 2 different RE.  One was affiliated with the hosptial I work for so I decided to start seeing her.  She was supposedly this "world renowned" specialist.  After several random test/labs, being ridiculed for "exercising too much" (30-60 minutes of Cardio 3-4 days a week and 2-3 days of light yoga), and never hearing back from her or her office staff I decided to search for a new RE.  The difference between the two was night and day.  She takes the time to talk with us, her office staff is wonderful, and for the first time in over a year, I feel like we are in the right hands.

So May 2013 I started seeing this new RE.  She did a thorough history and lab work up.  I was just finishing my 4th round of Clomid 100 mg/day from my old RE which failed to get us a BFP.  Day 3 labwork was drawn.  Estradiol was 61.7, FSH 2.0, Prolactin 12.4.  My genetic testing all came back fine.  A HSG was done which showed completely open fallopian tubes.  The devastating news...AMH of .16.  I have incredibly low ovarian reserve.  Now this all started making sense.  We decided to try IUI with that round.  Unfortunately AF showed up.  Back to the drawing board.

My RE started me on Letrezole 5 mg/day this cycle.  She didn't think we would need the IUI seeing as DH counts are perfect and to help save some money for probable IVF.  I know most places won't even consider IVF is your AMH level is less than .7.  My RE thinks it's worth a shot seeing as I just turned 30 and although I don't have many eggs left, hopefully the ones I have are good quality.

I'm feeling completely hopeless right now...feeling like we'll never have a child of our own.

Any words of wisdom/advice would be greatly appreciated.  I know it's out of my hands now and am praying for a miracle!

Confused please HELP!!

So i have a question I wanna know when exactly does the 2ww start!! I ovulated on Sunday 16th so when did my 2ww??? 


Major hot flush going on and Ive only been lying down !! I KNOW bbt temps dont count but I took it anyway thinking I was going mad cos I am ALWAYS cold and it was 99.95 / 37.75 degrees- Thats blooming hot for me !! .....still not convinced though....


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
