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!

1 Week!

It's one week until my lining check! And one week until my last lupron injection! It felt so far away for so long but now it's feeling more real. :) Like, it's close enough now I can even look up a weather report if I want, lol.

If all looks good at my scan they'll confirm my FET date and switch me over to progesterone, which I'll take for 3 days prior to the FET since our embies are 3 days old. My lining on its own always looks "beautiful", so depending on estrogen supplementation to build it instead makes me a little nervous, but I've done a pretty good job staying level about it (and staying off Google). I'm usually very much of the mindset "if it ain't broke, leave it the hell alone bc you might break it" lol, but I am trying to trust my body is working with the medication properly. Lots of prayer, meditation, and visualization.

For those of you who have done ivf before: did you test before your beta? I know I'm not there yet but I keep feeling very conflicted about it. I don't want to test too early and put myself in emotional distress for no reason, but I also don't want to fall apart if the beta is negative. So tricky. :/

Bfp after 7 years ttc pink spotting and cramps

So it's 18dpo and I made it till bed time and now I'm spotting some pink clear mucus after some cramps that started about 2 hours prior, during spare room rearranging.

Praying I get to keep this one I've waited and worked so many years for.

New to tww

Hey Ladies, I've been following tww for a few months now so I thought it's time to post. Ttc for three months, more seriously the last two using opK's. Last month I didn't get a positive opk so I think I missed my window by o earlier than I thought. This month I had ewcm sun 4th and a strong positive and 5th ewcm and positive. We Bd 5th, 6th and 8th. Had light cramping from 3rd, and today sore bbs and no cm or positive results for last few days. Worried I may of missed window as dh was away the days before ewcm. any thought on timing?

Thanks ladies :) 


I'm not symptom spotting until I get af because I keep telling myself I'm not pregnant, that I can't get pregnant, especially just coming off birth control. Despite the dream of me holding a positive pregnancy test and I'm utterly exhausted today even after a cup of coffee. Af due in 9 days, ovulation predicted 6 days ago, unprotected sex 7 days ago. 


Ordered new Clomid prescriptions, spoke to the clinic and we’re all set for a March round so fingers crossed.

15 dpo bfp line not progressing.

In order top to bottom 

12 dpo smu

13 dpo smu

15 dpo 2 howh hold pm

16dpo fmu

Not progressing? Or even lighter after 13 dpo?


6th IUI attempt

So in Sept 2015 I had my miracle baby boy after 3 rounds of IUI. Since then I've tried an additional 3 more times, and no success. I have PCOS, endometriosis, bicorunate uterus, tilted cervix and ohormonal imbalances galore but I'm still very optimistic about this go fabulous doctor, new meds, and an IUI that seriously didn't hurt! Here's my story...

Day 3 found out I had a huge cyst that finally bled it's way out of my body. Got baseline bloodwork. Started letrozole, doubling doses, 1 pill, 2pills, 4pills, 8pills  for day 3-7. Then bloodwork, U/S, and 2 follicles measuring 12mm. Day 9 and 10 took menopur in the PM. Then back to ER for another look at the follicles. Only 1 survived menopur and  measured 16mm on day 14. On day On day 16th the HCG shot in the morning and we had instructions to do the baby dance and on day 17 (today) we had the IUI. Now the 2ww.... baby dust to you all! anyone on their 2ww? 

I've gotten my hcg beta results after ttc 7 years with PCOS

I'm stressed and upset...I waited what seemed like forever. 2 week wait doesn't have shit on the waiting time for appointments and results so far.

I'm 15dpo.

I had a betahcg and progesterone drawn on 13dpo and now (2 days later) I finally have the results for both of those.

21 hcg

21.7 progesterone

Low hcg? Why so low? And my progesterone dropped from 40(7dpo)to 21(13dpo), why?  


I  hope this poppy seed grows as it should. I really need it to stay around until October... I'm worried about the numbers being too low...

I have an appointment and repeat blood work in 5 days. Here's hoping for bigger numbers.... I want this baby more then I've wanted anything.


BT up, 11DPO

Hi everyone!

Brand new to this group, wondering what you all think about my FF chart this cycle.

Temps steadily rising here post Ovulation. CD 30, 11DPO. Luteal phase is usually 11-12 Days. Didn’t have a triphasic pattern, but are my high temps here looking reassuring For a BFP? No symptoms. Creamy/Wet CM. Cramps on and off. 



Terrible evap or do you see vv faint pink, too?

Hello to all the lovely ladies at TTC,

So 6-8 dpo, yesterday took ic thought I saw vv faint line (only I can see it?!?), but well out if time limit. This morning woke up around 5:30, took another ic and 2nd line didn't show in timeline. Went back to sleep, woke up 1.5hr later and saw 2nd pink line??? Took a different ic with 2.5hr hold, nothing???  What do you think? Don't want to get my hopes up too early. Thank you in advance.
