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!

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?

FRER frustrations!!

9 dpo yesterday.....lowerback pains, cramping, blue veiny tender boobs, got this! Tested again twice today and BFN! Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thought I was pregnant

So me and my husband has been trying for a while and I really thought we did it this month. The next day after my big O my nipple were so sensitive that the shower hurt them. They seems more swollen then I have ever seen them. I do get tender breast every month but I have never got it that early and that intense. Me and my husband baby dance every other day since the last day of my period and baby dance the weekend of when I was suppose to ovulate so I really felt good about it. Starting on 2DPO my teeth felt weird which I had that could be a sign and I had slight pain on my right side lower pelvic by where your body's tubes are. The other sign that I thought I was pregnant was I could smell my cookies in my desk drew like they were right in front of me on 6 DPO. Now that I am three days away rom my period I felt period cramps and I feel like my breast aren't as swollen or full as they were before. They feel a little tender but I really doubt I am pregnant now. My breast usually hurt the week before and stop hurt when I get closer to my period and it is happening again this month. If anyone has any tips and advise or thinks different please comment below I would love to hear about it

I'm losing my mind

I'm 22. I'm really hoping this can be my month. We aren't using any aids.. All Natural.. Slight cramps since around my fertile week. Af due in 8 days. I'm so anxious. Just super bloated.. Heavy ish breasts.. But no tenderness.. It came an left.. I guess I was ovulating. As I type. I have a slight headache although I slept all day.. Around this time for the past few days... I have been suffering a partially blocked nose.. Any ideas?

Well, hello!

Aww, talk about a throwback! This def reminds me of the days of LiveJournal and Xanga, haha. Well this is delightful, a place to dump all my crap about TTC! I'm getting into the "lingo", as it were after this first month TTC with no luck. People are mentioning this lube, PreSeed and are swearing it's gone from no-luck TTC multiple months, to using that and then !boom! BFP. Hubs and I don't typically use lube, but maybe it's worth it to pick up because...why not? And I inadvertently saw it before I heard anything about it in just like, a CVS or something, so clearly isn't all that difficult to find or anything. That'll do it for my first little blog. Whew! Missed these blogging days, haha.

2WW First round of Clomid to conceive 2nd child

Hi everyone. I am in the 2WW phase of my TTC journey. I am 11 dpo and all of my "symptoms" seem to have vanished. I just took a FRER and it was negative. Has anyone gotten a BFP with a FRER after getting a BFN?
