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!

one more dayyy

Well.. no AF yet. If she doesn't rear tomorrow I will test Weds. I'm on CD 27, my last two cycles were 22 and 25 days long. The one before was 27. So I'm going to try and keep myself from taking another test until CD 29 or 1 day late even by my long cycles standard.


No PG symptoms, after reviewing my patterns the last few months before we started TTC I've had months where I've experienced all of the stuff I'd been thinking were symptoms. Except for this month's spotting which I'm chalking up to either a weird cycle or the UTI I'd gotten. 

Not so hopeful again :( especially since iI think I O'd extremely late and all my prior patches of EWCM were just my body trying to O and not making it 

Never felt like this before..

I am 9dpo and it is Aug 12 today. Im due for my period once every 35 days so next one is Aug 22. So far, at 4dpo and 7dpo I have had two BFN's but im still hopeful!! Here are my symptoms and you tell me if you think I might be pregnant. My first pregnancy (if I am) so im not sure IF these symptoms are because of that!

I'm Probably Out Right?

So disappointed.


My OPK showed positive results July 29 and July 30 AM but negative results on OPK by July 30 PM.  I wasn’t temping.  What day should I count as 1 dpo?  I was counting July 30 as 1 dpo making me 14 dpo today.


If I ovulated Tuesday then Wednesday, July 31 would be 1 dpo making me 13 dpo today…and so on and so forth.  OR if I even O’d later than that maybe Aug 1 would be 1 dpo right?  Making me 12 dpo today.


I don’t know I’m probably reaching.  AF is due (28 days) this Wednesday, August 14.  UGH.  Cycle history for the past few has been 27 days (May 27), 26 days (June 21) and 28 days (July 18)


I have tested with FRER and early strips and all says negative.  Even the one this morning.  They say it’s not over until the fat lady sings (AF) but I’m probably out right?  

Twinges, ample cm

I posted this in my comments from another blog entry, not really sure how this site works yet :) 

So today is 10dpo, I felt a weird sensation on my left (possibly uterus). It wasn't really a cramp pinch or twinge, it was very brief (about 20 sec?) and not overly uncomfortable but definitely noticeable. Never felt that before. I have by and large been trying to forget about the tww to not confuse symptom spotting and the real thing. Obviously I hope that was implantation. Mild halfhearted cramps this afternoon, cm has alternated between super stretchy (different to ewcm in that it doesn't keep it's shape and clear, to some lotion like cm briefly then back to watery/milky and heaps of it, soaking into underwear. Cp is high and closed. It dropped lower a day or so ago in the morning but was tucked far away by the afternoon. I really hope this is it, my boobs are so big and sore!  I hope it doesn't all just mean extra hormone therefore extra bleeding...normally by now I am super dry and everything subsiding for af.....

CD5 and AF has left the premises

Finally AF has packed up and left. Cant wait to see what my bbt chart shows this month. But either way we gonna BD this month like never before, come hell or high waters. Ill be charting every single thing this month.

Paragard IUD

I had a paragard IUD removed after 5 years, no problems, regular periods. It was removed July 13, on the last day of AF. AF this month should've been here around August 5, but still nothing, and all -HPT's. I think the IUD removal has messed up my cycle even though it had no hormones. How long should I wait with no AF before calling the doctor? Could I still get pregnant even though I didn't have AF?


Did anyone have a low somewhat hard somewhat soft cervix before you got your positive test? im supposed to get

AF really soon but ive been havign cramping on and off for the past week. im not too hopeful that im preggo but

theres still that thought in the back of my mind.. we stopped using b/c this month but werent actually REALLY

trying so im not expecting to have a positive! just wondering if you guys ever had a low kind of hard cervix before

you got your period!

And So The Signs & Symptoms Continue...But So Does The Wait!


In our post yesterday we told the story up until the day before...


6 DPO - Tiredness, Nausea, and BB Pain are the order of the day, along with the same lotion-like CM and partial ferning.  Emotions are all over the place.  The BB pain starts out as discomfort in the morning but by the evening, it’s back to PAINFUL.  Had to buy new sports bras to provide a little relief.  Temp had taken a small dip on 5 DPO, but was back up again.  With no concrete O day and looking on the optimistic side, it could be an implantation dip. BFN test!


7 DPO - All the symptoms are the same as they have been, but the cramping has been worse this morning.  Interestingly, there was a BIG spike in my temp, so the chart looks like it might be triphasic.  We’ll see what the rest of the day has in store, BFN test this morning, but honestly it is to be expected at this stage.


It is so hard not to try to read into every little thing while suffering the agony of the TWW but we really do feel positive.   Reading about the triphasic pattern, it can be a very positive sign particularly if the spike comes 7 - 10 DPO which if my chart is correct (not the monitor) and O day was the 3rd August is right on cue. We would be grateful if anyone who has had a triphasic pattern could comment on the chart and give us any insight.


Here's hoping and baby dust to all!


9/10 dpo Preg test added

I made a blog about sharp twinging pain I felt around 7dpo well I was going POAS crazy and decided to test and got this. It is super early so I don't know what to think. I already had a super early miscarriage so I am nervous. What do you ladies think? I used a FRER. Is it a bad batch? what is the bad batch number every one was talking about. Is it a false positive? Fake lol I just don't want to believe it! We only had a chance to BD 2-3 days before ovulation since hubby was out of town.

please let this be my month!

It's 8dpo and cd22 of yet another cycle of ttc. I am at work but can't concentrate on anything. 

I'm 23 yrs old been ttc for two yrs now with no success. Had all tests done and app theres nothing wrong with either of us. This cycle I ovulated on day 14/15. DD'd around fertile period. Cd16 I got sore boobs and at 8dpo my boobs feel like they will fall off. I'm a very small 32A size but they feel so big and heavy. I do get sore boobies in some cycles but only 3-4 days before AF. This time it started right after ovulation. So despite myself I'm feeling a little hopeful. And also the small pinch like cramps which I got during ovulation, I've been feeling the same kind of pain in my right near my hip for last three days.

This tww is torture for me..

I'm with you ladies ttc with me x baby dust to all.. let's stay positive
