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!

Feeling low

I actually still feel fine about my cycle. It's out of my hands at this point and I'm okay with that. But I've been in a lot of pain in one of my hips for the past 3? 4? days, and it is starting to wear on me. I feel very emotionally vulnerable and kind of want to cry. I've been fortunate in my life that I've never really had a chronic pain situation, but I understand now how it can wear on people. We've gotten pretty great at the PIO injections, but the night in question we hit what we think was my hip bone. It was in the appropriate area, but I'm not very big and those needles are pretty long. Anyway, the injection hurt like hell, and it hasn't really stopped hurting. It isn't swollen into a big knot anymore or anything, it's just a deep down pain, almost like nerve pain, and it has really limited my hip flexibility, which is hard for me since I have had to seriously modify my daily yoga practice. (Think crossing your ankle over your thigh to make a figure 4 -- that move is almost impossible for me now.) It's basically like I've triggered piriformis syndrome. Anyway, I started alternating ice and heat yesterday and that sort of helped. This issue doesn't respond to massage the way a normal injection soreness would. Meh, idk. I'm just feeling a little low about it, but I'm sure it'll go away... At least I hope it will. If not I'll have to see a physical or massage therapist or something. I wish I could hang at home and not move from the couch but ya know, life must go on! Anyway, enough of my complaining, though getting it off my chest has made me feel a little better. If you have any experience with really bad PIO pain please ease my mind and make me feel less crazy/hopeless?

Can an admin help me?

Hi! It seems that I cannot post comments. The captcha tool spins for infinity and never gives me any questions. There is no captcha to post a blog so I'm able to post here. Do I need to create a whole new profile? Anyway Spazzle, I saw your response before my post got deleted. I'm thinking of you today and wondering how things are going. <3

All I've Been Able to Conceive is a Bad Attitude...

My husband and I have been together for just over five years and finally tied the knot in August 2018. At first we just wanted to wait until we bought a house and put down some roots before starting a family. When that happened, we talked about it and decided to do a little more travelling and by the time we did that we were engaged. It was a quick engagement, only nine months and our first time TTC was on the first day of our Honeymoon. Mind you, the time change (went 10 hours ahead) screwed up my timing and the jet lag very well could have impacted my cycle. We are currently on month four TTC. It's been a lot harder than I thought. Not just to get pregnant but to handle myself when AF comes. At first I was unsure if I really wanted kids yet and then it happened. Last month AF was four days late (which has never happened before) and I had a variety of other symptoms. I was sure this was it. I waited until I was three days late to test and I saw that faintest hint of a line. I figured I would wait until the morning and test again with better urine. At 10:41 that night, AF showed her ugly face and I was destroyed. Now I know how badly I want it... I am currently 4 DPO and told myself I was not going to look for symptoms, which was clearly never going to happen. I have had light cramping since ovulation and this morning I woke up with a stuffed up nose and a tickle in my throat but I don't feel like I'm sick. It's November and I live in Canada so there's a good chance it's just a cold coming on, I know, but part of me hopes it's something else. I also have had steady CM since ovulation and I have this odd pain (not really painful, but for lack of a better word...) going from my vagina up into my uterus. It's sharp and quick. Very odd. I am trying so hard to not be discouraged but it's so hard when everyone around me is getting pregnant. People who aren't even trying and they are calling me in tears because they didn't want a baby. I need to be a good friend and be there for them, but it's getting harder to bite my tongue. Anyways, that's just the short version of the beginning of my journey. Hopefully in two weeks I will be posting with some amazing news. <3

I got deleted <_<

My most recent entry was sandwiched between a bunch of spam, so I guess it got deleted as part of the cleanup? Sigh. Anyway, it's transfer week, and in honor of that (and in holding myself to something I've been promising for a long time) I'm sharing the link to my book: For some reason my cover is only showing up intermittently for now (some delay related to Cyber Monday traffic), but if you download it everything should show up properly in the app or on your device. I'm an author (by another name) of fiction, and I've never been great at sharing my work, even more so with this because it's so personal, but this has felt for a while like something I needed to do. My only request is that if you are gracious enough to leave a review on Amazon to please not reference my blog here. This has been a refuge for me for many years, where I have vented about plenty of people who wouldn't be too pleased to find out I'm sure, among other TMI details, and I would like for it to remain so. I hope if you read it you're able to find something worthwhile in what I've shared. Some of it is similar to things I've shared here, but much of it is not. Anyway, I'm excited and nervous to share it with you and more than anyone else I am interested in your feedback. You guys get it, I mean, much more than most. In an effort to stay very zen, I'm keeping all the little details of this transfer -- the ones that I would normally scrutinize to the nth degree and post for discussion -- out of sight / out of mind, but say a little prayer for me if you can. Thanks as always for your kindness and friendship, Spazzle

It's been a while

I disappeared to be miserably sick my entire pregnancy. HG is a bitch. After an incredibly fast and unplanned home birth my girl is here. Totally worth the complex tearing and continued pain. She's still tiny and I'm already hoping for a third one. So I am back to lurk until my period returns. Could be quite a few months, but that's a good thing considering the todo list I have. Happy ttc-ing to everyone.

Chemical pregnancy ?

10/16 was the day i conceived two weeks before my expected MC (10/31). I woke up around 2am to use the restroom and when i wiped i seen powder pink colored mucus , 2 wipes and it was gone , i had absolutely no expectation of that when i wiped , There were no cramps or pinches at all, so just Incase i put a pad on. For that whole day i had no cramps just gassey and on and off spotting that was a rust color.. i assumed implantation.. next morning i had really bad menstrual cramping so i checked (TMI Alert) ...and a lot of bloody mucus came out and since I’ve been bleeding like a normal period. Has anyone had this experience? And would that be considered a CP?

Worried much

Hello ladies, i am in need of support (as we all are) begin at the beginning of 2017 when me and my boyfriend got together we were intimate (unprotected). At first we were not ttc at all however the intimacy continued and my MC symptoms changed, it will be late, begin with pink spotting and of course PMS so i always assumed i was pregnant. The result of that, i became obsessed with checking my every symptom and get myself comfortable with the idea of being pregnant just to end up with AF banging on my door. After months turned into a year, and a year turned into 20 months i began to worry that i am unable to have children and it turned into huge disappointments after one another. I am 23 and want kids. Seeing all of my peers with preg bellies and some on their third child i wonder why it has not been easy for me to conceive.
