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!

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?

Trying To Conceive After Depo Shot / Clomid

Hi Ladies, Long Story short I've Been on Depo Provera Since I Was 16 (on & Off) But i have not been consistent with it My Last Shot Was Back In May of 2018 i was due for My Next shot In August 2018 But dh And i Decided That I will come off depo shot an order for us ttc..when next shot was due ive had what i believe to be was breakthrough bleeding (not sure) anyways thought that i will buy CBE OPK. Since i started bleeding it lasted like a normal period so i Decided to start testing after the bleeding stop 5 days after bleeding i Had A Positive OPK ( not sure if i o'd this month being that i only been off depo porvera for a month is it possible that i o'd ?? and i didn't have any symptoms of ovulation but did have a lil discharge(tmi) so desperate to conceive is there any way clomid can kick start ovulation after depo provera ??

2ww buddies!!!

Hey lovely ladies!! I am trying really hard to hold off testing til next Wednesday but I doubt i’ll be able to hold off. And need some similar minded people! Currently 6dpo. I had a positive CB ovulation test with some BDing thrown in (of course) and now hoping and praying that we are lucky this month. I miscarried in June at 6w4d which was absolutely horrendous. Can’t belive how hard I took it. Not many symptoms to be honest tho - which is a little disheartening although have some pinching pains on RHS, implantation? Super tired and quite emotional (same as last time) I know my body is probably playing tricks on me!!!!! When are you all planning on testing?? Sending us everyone hundreds of baby dust <3

Oh hey, it's me

I guess it's been about 6 months since I popped by here. Idk why I got the urge today, maybe it's just that I have been feeling a little out of sorts emotionally as we close out one season and prepare for fall, and blogging sometimes helps me sort through things. We just passed our 5 years TTC anniversary, but honestly our lives have felt very post-ttc for most of this year. It feels like a lifetime ago that we did our retrieval and our FET. Turns out time does heal some wounds, or at least dulls them. I've gotten a lot better about existing in the present instead of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. You can only be where you are. We're doing our final FET between Thanksgiving and Christmas. (Now that I'm looking at it, I realize that planning to spend a small fortune right before a gift giving holiday was not great planning lol.) I don't have my protocol packet with all the endless dates and meds in it yet but we're on the schedule. I guess we'll see how that goes. In the meantime, I've been working on a book about infertility and how I've used yoga and meditation to learn to live with it. Nonfiction is a new realm for me (typically I write fiction) but I'm enjoying it. It has actually been really cathartic. I'm hoping to have it out on digital shelves before the end of the year for anyone interested. Anyway, I don't sort through the posts here anymore but I do pray for you guys often. Please know, wherever you are, that you're not alone. :)

Over 45 and I think I see a second line!!

Hi all, I'm sitting at work freaking out more than a little, after many years of trying, and peeing on hundreds of sticks, I think I see a second line. Does anyone else see it??

7 DPO... itching to test!

Hi all x Just wondering if anyone out there is in the same boat as me... I'm currently on cycle #4 of TTC, was CONVINCED last month I was pg as had sooo many symptoms, but AF showed (4 days late?! - never happens) So, back to it and I am currently 7 DPO, desperately trying to resist the urge to poas... have internet cheapies so satisfy the urges but I know it's too early and could do without the hope dampener of a BFN! DH and I dtd twice around ovulation (I can feel when I ovulate). We have a son, a daughter and this will be the third. I have 1 fallopian tube after an ectopic but 2 ovaries - had both children from the tubeless one - amazing bodies we have! Anywho, just thought there may be someone out there that could do with a 2ww buddy, keep track of any signs and (maybe) keep each other sane?! I will be testing soon... As always, best of luck and huge amounts of baby dust to all xxx

BFP 5 DPO? Or evap line

I’m assuming that I must have gotten my ovulation date wrong, because I have a vvvfl on a Walmart cheapie that showed up 10 min after I peed. I took these on two separate days, but now I am unsure if they are evap lines or true BFP. My fiancé and I have been trying to conceive for 9 months and we’ve had two miscarriages in the run. I don’t want to get too excited. Help??


I have to tell someone because I’m super excited tomorrow is our 2nd anniversary and I’ll be able to give him the best gift ever! He doesn’t think his swimmers swim lol and this morning I took a $1 pregnancy test at 3am now I can’t even go back to sleep. I’m 11 dpo maybe 10 not sure of the exact number. This is my first hpt this cycle.. the previous months I start testing at 7 lol. This is our 3rd cycle trying and my first month not really caring if it happens because we are in the process of building a home. Gods timing is so perfect. His first child, my 2nd. Anywho let me get to the good part and tell you what worked for us this month. We tried the FertilitySmart Conceive for women the first time this cycle and miraculously it worked. The previous 2 months I tried fertility blend and he just took his regular vitamins while both of us take a fish oil daily. I also take Evening Primrose oil up to ovulation to help with cramps because since I been off birth control in January I’ve experience heavy cramping during ovulation. One thing that helped with cramping was acupuncture but I didn’t do that this month because it’s expensive. Last month I went on day 2 of my cycle right then and there she got rid of my cramping, mood swings, and heavy bleeding. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get pregnant. Also, instead of dtd everyday, we dtd every other day leading up to ovulation. I think that worked better for us. As far as symptoms, I didn’t check for them this cycle because the last 2 cycles trying I just knew I was pregnant from cramping and mood swings haha.
