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!

Confusing Body

The last two days my body has been extremely confusing! three days ago I had some cramping then a brownish pink discharge, the next day there hours of cramping with heavier bleeding then nothing for the rest of the night and then yesterday the exact same thing, and now I'm waiting to see what happens today. I'm not suppose to start AF until this Saturday and I'm NEVER early! My thought is its implantation bleeding! Sore boobs as well! Has anyone else ever experienced this roller coaster with their body before getting BFP?

OPK Results - Help would be great!

Yesterday I had what I think is a positive test results on a OPK.  We BD last night.  Today I tested and the line is lighter.

What does this mean?

i feel like we did it!

started AF on 7/08.

saw faint line on opk stick on 7/20 and full positive on 7/21

DD on 7/19-7/22, also 7/24

O day, felt twinges and pinching pain on rgt side of uterus

continued through the 24th (dpo2) which then moved to the middle

dpo3-light lower back cramps, bouts of nausea

5dpo-rgt BBS especially under armpit,insomnia

7dpo-still have BBS(right side) also felt major tightening in uterus(almost like BH) continued for hours

8dpo- woke up at 5am with cramping located on right side ovary, unmistakeable


Cycle 3

Not really much to say here apart from waiting for AF to finish soon. Will update when necessary!

I'm totally freaking out!

Today I am between 7 and 8 dpo..... around 5 dpo I noticed I spotted in the early moring! This really got my hopes up! I've had a couple other "symptoms" (sudden but mild waives of nausea, cramping, crying for stupid reasons, and mild lower back pains!) All of these symptoms have had me really excited the last few days, but today out of the blue while watching TV with my hubby, I noticed a twinge on my left side... it continued for a few minutes and got a bit stronger and more noticable. All of a sudden a rush of fear and worry flooded my body! I started to think, "omg what if I'm getting ready to have a period, or a miscarriage" This is our first month TTC so I'm really confused and lost =( I want this to happen with all of my heart, but idk what to think now!

just trying to pass the time

Hello all you have seen me on here a lot lately sorry I am going nuts with this tww. I was on bcp for 8 years finished my last cycle last month had af on the 26 and have had every symptom from my daughters perfume wanting to make me throw up hot dogs can't eat them I didn't mind them before didn't love them. my temp went back to normal for a few day still bloated gassy and evacuating the good old kidneys like every hour. temp just spike up to 99 I feel fine other than nausea if I don't eat. this is nuts. thought I saw a ghost line but not sure I am 5 days late for af. I have never ever had that unless I am pregnant ask my two kids. lol. trying to make light other people not being very encouraging actually only one person and it's not my hubbs. He's almost totally positive just for the fact of I cry at the drop of a hat. I am not an emotional person on or off bcp mood swings tend to swing towards making me irritated instead of crying before af. but too test today thought I saw ghost line but not positive. any time even using ept I have to wait almost two weeks after my af was supposed to come to get my anwser so I have more like 4ww. I think people that see it on a test are awesomely luck or see it before their missed af. so I will try not to drive everyone insaine. I was fully prepared not to be with child for a few more months because of the length I was on bcp. I got pregnant with my daughter in two months after being on bcp for almost two years so I figured it would probably take even longer. and I am on a low dose hormone so I don't get any symptoms from stopping them. the rx has messed up my cycle 3 times in 5 months so we took it as we should go for broke then get fixed. lol

Is this a BFP? 10dpo

Alright ladies, I need confirmation. What does this look like to you? Is it still too early to tell? 

What is happening with my chart this cycle?!

This is only my second month temping but last month I had a clear biphasic pattern. This month has been very strange since the start. I thought I ovulated on CD13 but then on CD16 I had the most EWCM yet this month and a small amount of pink spotting. Then my temp dropped dramatically the next morning and stayed pretty low again the next. MY cm has dried up, CP lowered a bit and my boobs are sore and bigger like they always are after ovulation. Pic of my chart:


I appreciate any input!

Ovulation Positive?

Hi gals :)  I have been TTC for a few months now (this is cycle 4) and I finally decided to start testing for ovulation.  Because this is my first time tracking this I was wondering if you could tell me if this is a positive or not?

Also, if it's positive, when should I BD?  Somewhere I read that I should BD tonight, tomorrow and the next day. 

Any help would be great!  Thanks!

Little Bean, is that you? Updates Daily + photos progression

DF and I are trying now. And this will be my 2nd and his 2nd baby. Our DDs (from prev. relationships) are 8 and 5.

So AF is due in 3 Days. I've tested and BFN so far. But yesterday I had light brownish / yellowish / pinkish spotting!!! Lasted 3 hours and stopped. For good.  

I have read HUNDREDS of stories within the last 2 weeks.. I need a buddy to wait with and hopefully share BFP's with!!!!


What I've been going through: I apologize in advance for the novel but I always love the stories that are really in depth about everything bc I love comparing symptoms :)
