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!

Same Sex Couple- At Home Insemination

Hello! So my wife and I have been married for 2 years now and we have TTC for 3 cycles before with 1 chemical pregnancy being the outcome! Went to a fertility clinic shortly after where they told me I had low progesterone levels and prescribed me progesterone which I was to take vaginally. After that failed attempt and lots of money, we decided to take a break. However, a good friend of ours is willing to help us.. he has 4 kids of his own so I know everything is good on his end. This cycle was our first time trying again after about 9 months. We did at home insemination the day before and 1 dpo. We used preseed and softcups this time rather than syringe. (TMI) I Oed the second time! Twice in one day actually! & Slept with the softcup in on both days! I am also using my progesterone this cycle as well. Currently 2 dpo! Wish me luck!!

Vitex, anyone taken or have information

Started Vitex yesterday after just finding out I had a CP. My periods aren’t that irregular 26-30 days, but I started spotting again after being on BC to regulate which helped for the longest time. Anyways... anything I need to know about Vitex? I’m not on any medication aside from multivitamin but do you have to stop taking it after ovulation? I only ask because I think there’s another all natural supplement maybe the raspberry leaf tea that could mess up implantation, thanks in advance!!!

18dpo BFP... bleeding OPK getting darker

Sooo confused! Got a really nice BFP 16DPO, had about 5-7 light ones before that but not squinters. Then that night (16DPO) started bleeding bright red and continued for 2 days and has really slowed down. It was never as heavy as AF. 17DPO very faint BFP hardly anything. Took a test at 2am today 18DPO very faint line better then 17DPO but... I had very diluted urine and already peed about 1-2 hours before. At 6am I took wondfo OPK that’s all I had after 4 hour hold and they are dark! I took 3, pretty sure equal to control line. Now I have to wait until after work just wanted thoughts or possible similar experiences from anyone, thank you!

Enter the 2WW

So I'll start outright by saying that I highly doubt I will have conceived this month as it's the 1st month trying as well as being under a lot of stress at work and moving home and I have had a bad cold/ear infection this month too so generally not the ideal baby making environment lol Anyway we gave it a good go doing BD every other day from CD5 (8 times so far!) but I took an OPK this morning (CD20) which is the date my app says I should be ovulating and it was negative?!?! I guess apps can be wrong so I'm glad we have BD quite a lot in the last 2 weeks so there should be a good build up (bit gross I know). Could I have already ovulated and just not realised? or am I yet to ovulate? my cycle can be anything from 29 days to 32 days so is quite irregular and makes it difficult to pinpoint ovulating days without using OPK. Also (TMI) with so much BD lately I don't know what is my CM and what is his swimmers lol should we carry on with every other day for this week just to be sure or do you reckon we should just settle in to the dreaded 2WW now? rest up and try to stay positive? Rationally I know that even if we were successful this month it would be way too soon to be experiencing any symptoms but I really do have them all. sore achey boobs, nausea, fatigue, bloating (although I've lost 1lb this week), food aversions....PMS or PG? so excited to find out. I think it's just my body gearing up for AF (or baby) but not an actual sign of PG. 11 days and counting until I can POAS and we both can't wait ...he even went and brought a couple of tests so we had them ready for when the time comes bless him. thanks for reading everyone, looking forward to reading your comments :) xx

TWW buddies? Menopur cycle

Any TWW buddies on here? I did menopur, trigger, IUI. Now 2dpo, would love to have someone to chat with on the same schedule, or even if not :-)

Hi! I’m new here!

Hi I’m new here! I’m not sure about this whole temping tracking thing but I’m gonna give it a try! My husband and I are trying for our first child!

Soy iso?

My DH and I have been trying to conceive off and on for about 5 years! We have seen doctors, we have tried “not trying”, I have taken clomid, do not want to do ivf (it’s just not for us). I usually have 25 day cycles an I bought some soy iso since I read amazing things about it and have been looking into making an appointment for acupuncture. So, waiting on my period to get here so we can officially start trying again (have never used any form of protection so we have never “not” been trying). Come cycle day 29 I broke down and took a pregnancy test since I was 4 days late, took one again on CD 30, finally today AF showed up. Was doing research on best days to take Soy when I found an article that was saying to use b12 to lengthen a cycle and I have recently (in past few weeks) started getting weekly b12 injections at the recommendation of my regular doctor (unrelated to fertility). Anyone have experience with Soy ISO while taking b12 or should I hold off for a little bit and see if my longer cycles help me get preggers without it?

Positive or Neg?

Original looks negative but when tweaked I definitely see a line. Help.

Help!! Faint positive or evap line!!????

Hi all, I'm 11DPO and did a home pregnancy test this morning at 6.30am and another one at 5pm. Both didn't really show anything when read after 5mins as recommended and 1 min for the pregnosis one. But know several hours later it shows this! Is it even reliable anymore? What do you guys think? A faint positive or just what they call an evaporation line!? P.s. sorry about the low quality photo

Possible faint line? Help me out pretty please!

TTC - cycle 4 with #2. AF is due in 2 days. Broke down today and tested :/ (I suppose this is exactly why you wait). Anyway, only symptoms have been bowel related (I’ll spare y’all).
