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!

July 2019 baby hopes.....whos with me.

Hi!!! Well here I am......again....waiting for a temp spike to confirm O after 2 days of solid smiles on CB digi. DH and i have been trying for cyckes now, this baby will be my last and his first as i already have a 15 year old and twin boys from previous relationships. DH is a few years older than me abd only wants to try for a year, so i guess you can say the pressure is on. Anyhow, got a solid smile on CD 13 and 14. Been temping every morning, no spike yet. We BD on 10, 11,13 and 14 and will keep going until we see a spike!! Anyone else goimg to be starting their ttw this week!!! Would love someone to go crazy with! Babydust to everyone!

Is this faulty or a positive?

Hello I can see second line when I hold it up to the light. But shouldn't it be a lot further apart? The brand is clear response is says 99% accurate from three days of missed period. I am approx 10-12 dpo unsure as first month off Bc. Any help please!

Do you see a line??

So I haven’t had a period since aug 17th got off the pill in September (haven’t had a period) it’s now 10/2. I haven’t been feeling right so I decided to test. Yesterday 10/2 evening test is on top and this mornings Fmu. The thing with the one from this morning showed a faint line almost immediately then I threw it in my purse and went to work. About 25 min later looked st it and this is what I saw (last pic to the right) Opinions please!! The first pic shows the test from yesterday evening. The middle was the test from this morning at about 10-15 min. Then the test all the way to the right was at about 30 min.

15dpiui, No AF, negative blood test

Hey. I got my 4th iui this August 17. BFN on 14 dpiui and negative blood test. AF is clock work 24 days. AF was due on September 30 but nothing yet, no symptoms of AF. I am so confused. Would love to hear some views from you lovely people out there.

1st trimester fatigue bfn

I have several children, got my tubes banded in Feb, 5 months after my section. All was good. Until last month, 1st trimester fatigue kicks in two days past ovulation, had an odd cycle but nonetheless, fatigue is still here. I'm 7 days into my new "cycle." Fatigue is unbelievable. Hits me every day around the same time. Sore breasts, actually lactating, for lack of a better description, but all bfn! Someone please she'd some light! If it were pms, wouldn't it have gone away with my cycle?

7dpo... Completely Exhausted

Hey y'all, I am a mother of 3 lovely boys and we have been trying for 6 months to concieve one more time... I have never struggled with fertility in the past but yhis time has been rough. After my youngest was born (he is 7 now) I started the mirena IUD. After 3 years we found out it had imbedded in the lining of my uterus and I had to have it surgically removed. I had a miscarriage in 2016 and in 2017 after the surgeries. Anyhow.. I started vitex this month.. ovulated 7 days ago.. and now I am completely exhausted. The past two days I have hardly been able to get out of bed and my back is super painful on and off with slight cramping. The strange thing is.. I haven't had any other symptoms. .. anyone else?


This week would be my regular period - however, i haven't been bleeding, at least not red blood! Nor have I needed feminine products. When I wipe after urination, its brown! What the what?! Last week I had slimy mucus that had some brown color to it... WHAT IS GOING ON!? This wouldn't be "implantation" would it?..since its been continuous..for several days..? Anyone have any helpful knowledge? Similar experience?

TWW- I’d rather watch paint dry!

Hi everyone! I’ve been following this blog for a While now and decided to post my first post! I am currently 7dpo 7dpt (I believe my ovulation happened the same day before I took my trigger shot, but triggered anyway!) I’m currently feeling twinges in the ovaries. It switches back and forth. Earlier tonight I also felt a major sharp pain in my lower abdomen (closer to the ovary I had grown a mature egg on)- which took my breath away! Happened for a couple seconds and I was fine after. Last couple days I have been having AF type cramps (but not severe) -more dull-like. Having some lower back pain, super bloated and tingly nipples. I am so tired. No amount of caffeine is keeping me awake! Frequently urinating but it’s hard to tell as I drink a lot of water and just always constantly peeing. CM is hard to tell because I am on progesterone suppositories (and so, gravity) Based on this, what do you ladies think? I know I’m still early, and testing now will only show a BFP because of the HCG in the trigger shot. But any hope is a good hope! Thanks in advance :) *baby dust to all!!*

6 days late, no AF and tired of seeing BFN :(

i was wondering if there is someone in the same position and did you get a BFP at the end? I came off the pill 2 months ago and had my period in time but this month when we tried (not sure when I ovulated) by period is 6 days left and im soo tired of seeing BFN :( I have tried first response and clear blue and nothing. I have had few symptoms, bloating, gassy, lower back pain, headache, cold out of the blue, cramps here and there but not as painful as when I get my AF. nausea sometimes during the day. How long did you wait until you went to the doc or got your BFP? This is our first time trying and all these negatives is making me feel sad, just want to know what is happening with my body. Any advice would appreciate it


Hey everyone! My husband and I have been TTC for 2 years now with no luck. Changed fertility doctors and now starting over again. Had one investigative cycle, natural with timed intercourse. BFN. Starting a new cycle now, started 7.5 mg Femara CD3. Planned IUI. Feeling scared as I really want this to work. Anyone have success with Femara?
