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!

TTC #3

its been a while since I’ve posted on this site. I do still come by every now and then to read BFP stories. This month we are TTC #3. I was put on femara 2.5mg on cycle days 5-9. It’s my first time ever using femara to conceive. im really hoping that we get it on the first try as it took a year for #1 and #2. Attached is my chart so far. I’m hoping to see my temps get a little higher and stay that way over the next few days. 

TTC 1

Hi,

My name is Massy and this is my first time trying to conceive/plan a baby. I have 3 kids ages 16, 11 and 7 all turning another year this year. I got married young anf had my first daughtr at 15 years old. Since then I been afraid of admitting that one of my life dreams was to plan a pregnancy once I was a professional and with a partner that was equally excited and prepared. I was in a previous relationship 4 years ago for almost 14 years. I conceived all my children with this partner. It was not bad but I was sucked into that life because I got with him at 13 years old and him being 10 years my senior. Then thus I had a baby and then from there it all was all big numb dream.

Nedless to say 3 years ago I meet a wonderful man, me and him are about the same age I am 31 almost 32 and he is 30 almost 31. We both been preety much in love but afraid to admitt it to eah other and actually settling in. But since late last year, we have grown founder of accepting and forgiving our mistake and actually starting over. We came to a conclusion that we wanted to try to have something together and for him to be a step dad to my kids and how we can intragate both of us into one. We recently had though we where expecting because I had a late period in January. Supposed to come 1/11 but came in 1/29 ( different period more brownish and then a heavy period and ended in 4 days instead of 5). Well short story, I have decided to plan the baby, with basal thermo and all... Any advice!

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. :/

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 :) 

Nope

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. 

Next

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

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 round...new 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? 

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. 

 

Thanks!!! 

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.

Gimme All the Hormones

I'm nearing the end of what I hope to be my last AF for a long while! I start estrogen supplementation today, and I'm actually kind of looking forward to it. For the past few days the lupron has had me feeling like an anti-depressant commercial, so I'm definitely ready to have some of my hormones back! Things are looking up, though. I worked out the difficulties between me and my bff (who has decided to embrace her pregnancy), and I also am feeling a LOT better about some crazy family drama that I'm sure was sparked by that super blue blood moon last week. We're also heading into the Easter season next week, which is one of my favorite times of year spiritually. I definitely need to stay spiritually strong right now. 

Not a lot else to report. My only side effects from the lupron were hot flashes (omg so much worse than I used to imagine they'd be before I ever got one lol), night sweats, and the mild depression I mentioned, but none of that was very noticeable until about a week into the injections and it really hasn't been bad. I don't remember what kind of side effects I got from estrogen supplementation last time I took it (my iuis feel like they were a million years ago), but I'm pretty optimistic! Trying to keep my body moving everyday with my usual workouts, even if I feel crummy and need to go lighter or modify. This is a great exercise in body awareness! Recognizing what you need and being kind to yourself. And with all the hormones you never know what your body will even *look* like from one day to the next -- big boobs, regular boobs, flat belly, bloated belly, clear skin, acne -- and honestly I think it has really made me love my body that much more and learn to let go of some unrealistic body image notions and just know I'm beautiful and worthwhile everyday. Or maybe that's just a maturity that you get when you turn 30, who knows, lol. ;P

Anyway, that's my ivf journey right now! Faith, trust, and baby dust. ☆
