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!

9dpo super faint bfp?

This is my first entry but I have been reading on here since 1dpo! So a little background, my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for about a year. We started going to a fertility specialist and have found out that I have pcos and my husband has issues with sperm count and motility because of an autoimmune issue. So we decided to start with iui.

So we started our journey with a round of clomid. I took it days 9-13 and when I went in for an ultrasound and blood work to see if I was ready for the iui. During the ultrasound the doctor believes that we witnessed me ovulate! He said it was only the 3rd time in 30 years he has actually seen it happen. So I was inseminated that day (9days ago), and began taking progesterone vaginal suppositories. This has been the longest wait of my life lol but here is what I have experienced so far.

1dpo-6dpo had a lot of cramping and lotion like discharge that I blamed on the suppositories 

7dpo-8dpo I had a serious attitude problem lol but no cramping. And I both days I woke up with nausea but have not thrown up.

Today 9dpo I have not felt much today except I think I got a bug, and maybe a tiny bit of cramping and sore bb's. I took a test and I see a very very faint line but I feel like I am just making myself see it. 

I will test again in the morning, hoping for the best! 

12dpo, faint on cheapie

Hi, so im trying not to freak out but I tested on a walmart cheapie first signal and got a faint line, but digital test says "not pregnant" that was yesterday at 11dpo.  I tested this mrn and again same results on walmart cheapie and 99c store (seems like the sqaure tests that require drops) come out with faint positive, Im gonna post a pic on here or try to.  But as soon as i tested yesterday i started getting cramps like crazy. I have been ttc since March 2017. Dr. put me on my 1st clomid cycle and gave a trigger shot on 9/25/17, did IUI next days on 9/26/17 and 9/27/17.  Tww began after and now I am getting these (pics).  Anyone else see the line on the FS cheapie?


Feeling Lost

This is my 12 cycles trying to conceive. I think I have try long enough to feel lost and devastated and angry and all those feelings.

3 months ago we went through the fertility assessment and everything check out OK. But my ovarian reserve is on the low side and DH's sperm is not of the best quality but the Dr told us this should not be a big issue. What we should worry about is our age. I am 36 and my biological clock is ticking fast and furious. And my ovaries are aging faster than they should.

I am seriously considering IVF, but I am not sure whether I am emotionally prepare. And financially of course, is also another concern. But our financial condition is alright at the moment and this shouldnt be the biggest problem. I am more worry on the disappointment. 

Went to see Dr.Helena again today and she prescribe me with DHEA supplements that should improve my ovaries condition, and to produce more eggs. And also some supplements for DH. And more blood test, (Kiara test, which I dont know wth is that and Vit D test). And the bill came up to RM1256. Oh dear....and we have not even go into the IVF procedure but have already spent so much money. I will see Dr. Helena again next week, to check if I'm ready to ovulate. 

Today I also bought Multivits and also Omega-3. But I feel it's a bit too late to take supplements now because supplements will take months to be effective. 

Of all the months, this month I feel most lost and depress. Today is CD3, last night I have been crying to sleep. I am usually a very cheerful and optimistic person and doesnt have much stress but this is really dragging me down emotionally. Everyone has been telling me to relax but this is not something I can control. :(

How long do I have to wait?


5 weeks and light cramping

Been to the doctor today and she told me in 5 weeks and 1 day pregnant. So far no symptoms at all but cramping, as if my period is about to arrive a week from now. I'm getting kind of worried. Has anybody had this problem before?


I am in total shock right now! After 4 years of trying I finally gave up a few months ago. 29th of August was my last period and ovulated on the 10th of September. Me and my DF had sex 2 days before. I just knew I couldn't be pregnant. My birthday just passed which was the 29th of September and I was already 4 days late. When me and my fiance went out to eat, he order pickles with his order which I HATE, but smelled really good. So good that I ate all of it. This passed Saturday I felt a little nauseous but blew it off because I always feel that way after I ride in a car for too long. Sunday morning at 1am I was so curious that I went to Walgreens, purchased the test and took it in the bathroom stall. The plus sign came up in less than a mintue! All I could do is just stare at it and then I screamed to the top of my lungs. So loud that as I was walking out of the bathroom, the customers was looking right at me lol. 

Crazy how life works. The minute I gave up in having a baby was the minute I became pregnant. Be patient ladies and give your mind, body and soul a break! Good luck and tons of baby dust to you all!!!

Maybe baby?

So today is CD21.. Hubby and I have been TTC for a year now. We started seeing a new gyne in Aug and I was on Fertomid from CD2 - CD6. Dr told us to start OPK on CD13 until CD16 but i never got a positive out of that. Dr ordered me to do the Ovidrel trigger shot on CD17. Hubby and i BD CD17 - CD19. I felt ovulation pains CD19 and last night laying in bed trying to fall asleep it kept feeling like something was bouncing in my stomach and i had cramps and so much gas (sorry for to much info)..i thought maybe i should go to the loo but nothing happened. My cycle is normally 32 days so i know its very early in my cycle and im going to wait and see of AF comes or not and will do a pregnancy test if she does not come. Hubby and I can noy help bit feel hopeful, the past year has been an emotional ride and all weve been doing is praying so hard for a little mericle. What do you guys think, maybe baby? Looking forward to hearing feedbacks.

Keep Calm & Stim On!

Well, after lots of sorting and stressing and scheduling, we've finally made it to stims!

I think the past week for me was just one long stress headache, but with a lot of the administrative and prep work behind us, we're coming up on the main event - woo! I finished up bcp, got the okay on my baseline ultrasound, and I start meds tonight. It's a minimal stimulation protocol, which consists of Clomid and Follistim (and some standby ganirelix, if they get worried my body might try to trigger ovulation). Daily monitoring starts on day 5 - Monday. My goal at this point is to hold onto my sanity and do my best to go with the flow. Hopefully in a couple of weeks we'll have some embryos. Man, how crazy will that be? 

I love reading all of the messages and well wishes. I haven't been on here a ton, but please know that they're much appreciated even if I'm spotty with my responses!

Sending you all my best. 

Cautiously Optimistic -8dpo bfp?

Im sooo nervous right now! stepped away 2 months ago...  is our 13th month ttc and everything up to this point led me to believe it wasn't gonna happen this time either. I was SICK at the beginning of my FW and couldn't BD till CD17. Thought I might've Ovd CD16 or 17 but we did it so late at night I thought we missed it for sure.

I should only be around 8dpo and decided to use a cheapie just to see the bfn and feel ok about still having a beer w hubby tonight. At the 3min mark, I saw a shadow. Hmmm ok. Nah, I'm seeing things. Cleaned up, went to the room and sure enough, faint Bfp. Looked again at the 6min mark and ...there could be no mistake... obvious, pretty dark bfp!! I'm still in shock. NEVER had one this dark, and NEVER had one this dark so early either!!! 

After soooo many chemicals, I dont wanna get excited. But none of my chemicals were dark lines.... idk. Crossing fingers and praying at this point. 


My SO and I (both 30 yrs old) have been TTC for years now with only one unsuccessful pregnancy. This month around Sept 4-8 had some bleeding which lasted about 4 days which was two weeks early for my normal period. I usually last 6 to 7 days with the 7th being brown spotting. This past week Sept 18-22 I noticed light pink spotting which lasted about 5 days. Mainly when I wipe or a few spots in my underware. (Sept 18-22 was supposed to be the time of my actual period). The light pink spotting has been off and on since. No other symptoms other than beimg super tired and grouchy! Could I be pregnant? It's probably to early for HPT or a BFP but I'm hopeful and discouraged at the same time bc I dont want to have another miscarriage :( Any advice would be great as I am wondering if this has happened to someone else and they may have seen their BFP! Thanks!
