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!

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.

Much better bfp today

Keep going little squidgy you're growing so fast! Af due on sunday and already getting bfp :) think I'm approx 10dpo.

BFP for me

Picture of my faint bfp from this morning

First IUI starting my TWW

Hello! First, I guess I should give some background. I’m 39 and have endometriosis. I’ve never been pregnant before and honestly, we’ve only been trying for a couple years. My husband has a 13 year old from a previous relationship. When we started trying, I had my blood work done and he did a sperm analysis. He’s fine and my blood work came back great. We saw a fertility specialist about a year and a half ago. He wanted to jump straight to IVF. We do not have any infertility insurance coverage. IVF was just not an option then, and isn’t now either. So, we decided to “let go let God”. That didn’t work. Today I had my first IUI. I used chlomid CD 3-7 and today is CD 12. I had a positive ovulation test yesterday. We are using my regular Obgyn, not a fertility specialist (due to lack of insurance coverage). All I’ve used is chlomid. No trigger shot, no crazy monitoring of blood or US. I know it’s a long shot, but at least we did it! I plan on getting new health insurance in January if iui doesn’t work for us. But for now, we are trying our best with what we have. I pay a fortune for it, you would think it would be better frustrating!! I wait. Has anyone else done iui with only using chlomid? I would love any feedback! I know the wait will drive me nuts, but I’m hoping it goes fast! Baby dust to you all!! xoxo

Seeing lines

Hi everyone, so decided to do a hpt this morning as I might be 10dpo and af is due this coming wknd so potentially only 5 days away. Anyway it was Def a bfn but I swear a can see a vvvv faint positive line on the cb test but nothing on the cheapie dip stick. I know theres nothing to do but wait and test again in a day or two but it's so exciting and don't want to tell dh until its a Definite bfp or bfn. Pretty sure that I've gone line crazy like most women TTC seem to lol why can we not just give ourselves 6 weeks and if no af then do a dd was a surprise so although a missed period for me was alarming I chalked it up to stress then as I started falling asleep on the sofa at 5.30 me and dh decided to take a test to rule out pg and low and behold immediate and incredibly strong bfp. but like i said, I was around 6 weeks just didn't know it at the time! Fast forward 5 1/2 yrs and here I am squinting at tests trying to see lines lol good luck to you all and thanks for reading xx

Possibility of pregnancy

I think I may be pregnant, I’ve been experiencing some signs & symptoms... I already have a 2 yro... so this will be my 2nd child... I had unprotected sex 2 dao (days after ovulation) I’ve been passing frequent bms that have been soft or loose. Slight cramping in abdomen and lower back pain. Along with sleeping just a little more than normal, but I have gotten up earlier a couple days before . Lastly the most recent symptom/sign my bf and I both noticed is my areoals are starting to darken a little bit starting with a dark ring on the outside following the nipple it’s self being a little darker. My exprected period starts in 4 days... could I be pregnant ?

Same Sex Couple- At Home Insemination

Hello! So my wife and I have been married for 2 years now and we have TTC for 3 cycles before with 1 chemical pregnancy being the outcome! Went to a fertility clinic shortly after where they told me I had low progesterone levels and prescribed me progesterone which I was to take vaginally. After that failed attempt and lots of money, we decided to take a break. However, a good friend of ours is willing to help us.. he has 4 kids of his own so I know everything is good on his end. This cycle was our first time trying again after about 9 months. We did at home insemination the day before and 1 dpo. We used preseed and softcups this time rather than syringe. (TMI) I Oed the second time! Twice in one day actually! & Slept with the softcup in on both days! I am also using my progesterone this cycle as well. Currently 2 dpo! Wish me luck!!

Vitex, anyone taken or have information

Started Vitex yesterday after just finding out I had a CP. My periods aren’t that irregular 26-30 days, but I started spotting again after being on BC to regulate which helped for the longest time. Anyways... anything I need to know about Vitex? I’m not on any medication aside from multivitamin but do you have to stop taking it after ovulation? I only ask because I think there’s another all natural supplement maybe the raspberry leaf tea that could mess up implantation, thanks in advance!!!

18dpo BFP... bleeding OPK getting darker

Sooo confused! Got a really nice BFP 16DPO, had about 5-7 light ones before that but not squinters. Then that night (16DPO) started bleeding bright red and continued for 2 days and has really slowed down. It was never as heavy as AF. 17DPO very faint BFP hardly anything. Took a test at 2am today 18DPO very faint line better then 17DPO but... I had very diluted urine and already peed about 1-2 hours before. At 6am I took wondfo OPK that’s all I had after 4 hour hold and they are dark! I took 3, pretty sure equal to control line. Now I have to wait until after work just wanted thoughts or possible similar experiences from anyone, thank you!
