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!

IVF

great news, well I’m not pregnant yet still waiting to find out in 12 days time but if this is not successful (still hoping it is) then we have been given an NHS IVF round!! 

3 dpo

 I’m on 3dpo and feeling very tired and crampy. This is my second cycle on Femara. Anyone out there on 3dpo that we can track our tww symptoms together?

TTW No PMS symptoms

Hello,

This is my first time blogging about my actual personal life... I was never the type to put my business out there but I am curious about who else is in the same boat as I am... I am so close on giving up but there is still hope left in me and maybe from reading other people's stories will help me regain my spirits. I miscarried last April.. I was three months pregant when I miscarried. It took me a year to concieve. My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive for the past six months with no success. This month I was certain that we BD on my ovulation day (I never really charted because my cycle is never the same) My period is due on 3/20, I have little to no symptoms. Normally I would have really bad cramps, headaches, and really sore boobs but I have none of those. I took a pregnancy test last night with a blue dye test (I know blue dye tests sucks but I grabbed whatever I could grab first) and it had a verrrrry faint line but I am not sure if it is an evaporation line. I will test again this weekend.. Hopefully I get a BFP on my birthday this Sunday :)  

Let’s take a poll...

• Ovulation - March 7

• A day later noticed a huge increase in CM. Continued for 5 days 

• 3 DPO - moderate cramps 

• 6 DPO - pink CM, enough to fill a liner. Just once.

• 7 DPO - pink CM once in morning. Last time.

• 9 DPO - bright red spotting after BM. Just once.

• 9 DPO - BFN 

Symptoms - FATIGUE, bloating, dizziness spells, tingling in breasts (no soreness).

This is our second cycle of trying after a blighted ovum (MC) in December.

Thanks Guys <3

1 DPO - Looking for a TWW buddy :-)

Hello all! I'm new to TWW. Yesterday was the Big O and now it's TWW for me!  Anyone out there in the same boat?

TWW 5 dpo

who else is in the TWW??!?!? 

Today’s the day

i had a positive ovu test today so it’s treatment day. My partner can’t be with and I’m super nervous and emotional about this. I know it can’t be helped. Plus my work we’re really off about it all this time made me feel bad for wanting to go.

IVF seminar in Melbourne tonight

Hi guys,  itd been a while since ive posted but just thought id drop and and say hi to everyone . really  excited because im taking two girlfriends to an ivf seminar in Melbourne  tonight (monash ivf glen waverly)  as we are all really interested to go.  Each friend has just recently had surgery for their endometriosis ... one as recently as last Wednesday and the other 3 weeks ago,   so i am driving them both in and we are all looking forward to going and getting some good information.  Its nice to do this together as we have all been in the ttc trenches  together for years. Anyway just really looking forward to it with them and being their support. 

How is everyone else doing lately?  Trying anything new? Sperm meets egg program? changing up your diet or vitamins or bd schedule? Taking a ttc holiday somewhere romantic maybe?  

Hope everyones well. 

Love alexandra

Hoping for an BFP

I ovulated last Monday-Wednesday and I had sex on all 3 days no I’m 5-6dpo this morning I had brown spotting just enough for an pantieliner with lil to no cramps my cycle isn’t do til next Wednesday what do you guys think

Hell, or something like it

I regret telling people we were doing ivf. I thought it would be nice to have support leading up to it and then if things didn't work out, like they didn't. But "support" as we know can come in many forms, most of which aren't helpful. Then all that support you thought you'd want becomes a burden.

My mom has taken to sending me things she's googled everyday. "I read the key is the vitamins, herbs, AND acupuncture." Because I'd already told her all the fancy supplements people swear work in a mere 3 months did not work, not even over the YEARS I bought them. Now she's telling me attitude is half the battle and that I need to "unblock my energy channels" and do more yoga (which I do every day, and have for 3 years). While I love yoga and have considered acupuncture for my overall wellbeing (ya know, since I'm crying multiple times a day and barely getting out of bed), these things are not a cure all. It's not like I'm not pregnant because my energy channels are blocked. It's almost as bad as "just relax". I want to scream, "Let me assure you, if I could just relax and get pregnant, I would do it. I would do it a thousand times before spending all this gd money and going through medical hell. I promise." It's not like someone gets cancer and you tell them to just relax and take some vitamins and unblock their fucking energy channels. I've just stopped responding. I know, truly I know, that my mom is trying to help. And this is the only way she knows how to try to help. But I am about this ( ) close to sending her, "Ya know, maybe I should just quit my job and live on govt assistance and eat McDonalds three times a day so I can have not one but TWO kids just like (insert name of one of my brother's crap baby mommas)." My friend told me that I shouldn't send it, that it would come across wrong. But really, truly, WHY am I always accomodating people?! I'm the one sitting over here on the wrong side of this fucked up parallel universe. I am TIRED of giving a fuck. I am close to discontinuing communication with literally everyone. No texts. No snaps. No carrier pigeons. I hate feeling alone but all this misguided "support" makes me feel way more alone, so at this point isn't it better to just tell everyone to leave me the fuck alone? I'm not pregnant. I don't want to talk about it like it's some super easy fixable thing. I HATE IT. I hate that apparently for everyone this is the easiest thing in the world and I HATE that everyone just acts like "oh something must be wrong with you" and I HATE that all these stupid idiot people are running around with kids they don't take care of and I HATE that nobody understands that I hate it. All of it.

We're trying to regroup and in a few weeks we're going to try to figure out the money thing and schedule our final FET. But then what? It won't work and people will sit around telling us if only we had done acupuncture and taken some vitamins? I am really beginning to question my ability to deal with this shit anymore. Yesterday I sat at work and contemplated how much leave I would get if I just decided to have a complete nervous breakdown. I know people care about us and I don't mean to sound ungrateful but FUCK. I need the universe to cut me a tiny bit of slack. Just a sliver. Because I am breaking into pieces and I surprise surprise I'm crying in public. Again. 

(Dh and I do have some plans to do stuff for us and not feel like such shit. I don't mean this whole thing to sound like we aren't trying to get though it. I'm just very frustrated with pretty much everyone and everything else. The only people who might understand that part of it are here, so that's why I'm putting it here.)

Anyway. Yeah.
