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!

5DPO with spotting

So today i am 5dpo and my temps have been climbing since i o'ed. Today its the highest it been this entire cycle. Im very excited and feeling pisitive about this cycle. When i went the bathroom just now i noticed a creamy discharge with a light tint of red in it. Hoping thats the implantation spotting everyone is talking about. My bb's are still sore. They feel a bit bruised on the sides and numb under my arms. Hoping thats a good sign. Luckily we are going to visit my SIL this weekend so it will keep my mind off of symptom spotting for 2 days then i just have to survive 7 more days. I promised myself i wont poas until 15dpo. So i hope i'll be disiplined enough to keep my promise to myself.

Progesterone Pills

My wife has been taking progesterone pills for the last ten days and still no af. When they did the shot it happened straight away. I don't understand why it's taking so long with the pills. :-/

BFN 9-13dpo BFP 15dpo

So excited to be writing this! Here's the run down: 

3dpo- lower abdominal pain/cramping, headache, and gums bled a little while flossing (which is strange because I'm a dental assistant and have healthy gums)

4&5dpo- lower abdominal cramps still

6dpo- cramps gone, slight lower back ache, VIVID dream about DH getting dreadlocks hah!

7&8dpo- nothing

9dpo- vivid BFP dream, woke up decided to real not to test- BFN on IC ):, still lower back pain, sore nips (AF symptom for me, thought I was out)

10dpo- heartburn, BFN on IC

11,12,&13dpo- BFN on FRER

14dpo- woke up with AF like cramps so didn't test, was sure she was coming ):

15dpo- no cramping or sore nips, but bb's sore on sides so decide to test with clear blue digi (my mom got me a box for my b-day haha!) and BFP!

all you ladies hoping for "late" BFPs don't lose hope! I got nothing until the day AF was expected!


Someone please help! Early ovulation?

Hi, I had a very light and brown AF from last thursday to tuesday while on holiday. Can anyone advise why i would get this ov test today at only CD7?! Sorry the pic is blurry, the line is the darkest i have had so far! I think ov occurred at CD23 last month! Any insight would be great! I took a pg test straight after that had an incredibly faint almost imaginary line and had neg test on sunday. Thanks everyone!

help please!

I went to my ob gyn the other day and he put me on clomid 50mg and metformin. Hopefully I start my own cycle but if not then I start provera also. Hoping it works on the first cycle. Me and dh have been trying for a year now. Ready for my bfp! Should I use preseed too? What does preseed do?

Can you see it?

I am 5dp5dt today. Can you please confirm that I am not imagining the second line, lol!

Am I seeing things part 2

Aaargh Wondfo! Even if these things turn out to be right, I'm still not buying them again. There's just so much guessing and potential heartache involved :( I did three tests this morning at 11 dpo with the same urine sample. All of them came back with a second line but with greatly varying degrees of darkness. Also, I don't think the test lines appeared clearly until slightly after 5 minutes, but before 10 minutes (directions say to read at 5 minutes). I was so stressed, I woke DH up at 6:30, handed him a red solo cup, and said "I need you to pee in this." After his initial response of, "What? NO!" he begrudgingly agreed. I felt a little better when he got a clear bfn, lol.

All the tests in the picture are lined up in order of when I took them. The first one at 8dpo is a bfn, and the next 2 were taken at 10 dpo, the darker one with fmu and the other one with more diluted urine in the evening. The next three were this morning at 11 dpo with the same sample.

I'm going crazy. I think I'll test with a FRER tomorrow, but I'm scared of a bfn, especially since AF isn't due until Tuesday.

Please let me know what you think! Thank you so so much! :)


15 dpo today and took bbt ,its gone down :( so I think AF will be on its way I guess.I'm out this disappointed.did everything right this month but still..........


Aug 13 lap all normal, TTC 3.5 yrs

Hi Ladies,

I have joined today. We have been TTC since 3.5 yrs without any luck. I'm 32 and DH too. All is normal and hence we have unexplained infertility. I had suspected left tube block and got diagonsed with IR this Jan so was asked To go a diagonistic lap. I had lap and dye 2 days ago. Both ovaries r normal and tubes are patent. DH acrosome was 4% but doc say they dont matter much. Now what should we consider next - natural/IUI? Any other suggestion, i'm getting disheartened :(

Nauseous during ovulation

Today is cd 17 and still no positive OPk. I'm on a 34 cycle two my app says I should ovulate this weekend but I feel like I am now? Sharp boob pain, lower back pain, acne, and nausea. Anyone else have these symptoms that tell them theyre ovulating? I guess it's a good thig I don't know when I ovulated then I won't be obsessing about symptoms every day. Last month I had sore bbs and lower back pain from ovulation to AF
