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!


Okay whatever the heck y’all are doing clearly isn’t working, the entire board is spam after spam after spam posts. DO YOUR JOB AND FIX THE SPAM Edited to add, obviously the “you’re not a robot” check box is doing NOTHING to prevent spam posts. Try harder, work harder. This is ridiculous!!!

My earliest pregnancy symptoms before BFP

I WANTED TO SHARE WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED AS I KNOW WHEN I WAS TTC I WAS HUNTING HIGH AND LOW FOR SIGNS I WAS PREGNANT! Being in that mid zone of wondering wheither youre pregnant or not can be so exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time, but no one can prepare you for that moment you see two lines appear, your whole world flips with excitement and fear and joy. No matter how sure or unsure of the symptoms you were. I thought i would share my earliest symptoms with you incase you too are in that 'am i, arent i' stage and would like to compare! THE VERY FIRST SYMPTOM...COLD AND FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS At 7 DPO, i woke up with a horrible stuffy nose, very sore head, aching throat and was very feverish. My body was aching all over and i was ready to quit life for the day. Usually when a cold hits me, i get a very sore throat a day or two before the other symptoms, like a warning. However, this came all at once. I was sweating and my body was aching all over. These symptoms disappeared within a day only to reappear again at 10 DPO. Hooray pregnancy! LOW MOOD/WEEPINESS My cold symptoms had now disappeared! But at 8 and 9 DPO i was suffering with a really, REALLY low mood. It got worse before it got better, but i couldn't stop crying and had a general hatred toward life in these two days! Nothing could shake this depressive mood i felt and i knew it was very unusual for me. Around 10 DPO as said above, my cold symptoms came back which...continue reading Good luck everyone TTC x

Trying to conceive

Good Day Everyone I would like to share my story with you.We have been married for 12 years and still no babies.We have been trying a lot of things with several doctors and nothing happen.In July 2016, I decided to change doctor, we went to see a doctor that diagnose me with PCOS and he started putting me on Glucophage XR 1000mg. As I was having irregular cycle, he put me on med to help regularise the cycle.We have been trying with Serophene and Clomid but nothing, until August 2017, when i was put on Gonal F and we have several IUI, I felt pregnant for the first time, but it lasted only for 7 weeks and it was lost. I have been trying again and January 2018, pregnant again and same for 7 weeks and then it is gone.I decided to change Doc once again. The one I am seeing now, immediately found out that I have a thyroid problem that needed treatment immediately.So we have paused in trying from Feb to May, and after AF in May, I said to the Doc that i want to try again. So I was put on Clomid from day 2-6,then I waited for my appointment with Doc, which was scheduled on the 01st June 2018, there was one Follicle of 21mm and many small follicles all around-She started putting me on Gonal F, from Friday 1st June to Thursday 7 June,When i went back to check, the main Follicles has reached 26mm and she gave me Ovitrelle and ask me to come for IUI on the next day Friday evening.So now I am 11 Days Post IUI.I have been getting lot of cramping on the right side and my breasts are very tender.I am really afraid of what will happen and don't know if i want to test.

Light cramping

Im 7 days post ovulation acvording to CHERRY app. Feeling subtle cramp pain again, not as bad/the same as the tenth when i inferred i was definitely sperm meets egg ovulating or whatever. Been having the back pain low in my back too and contraction type pain real bad like i did when lactose intolerant milk and cheese when preg with daughter in 2017. Anyway, of course dyin to test i should just chill, Supposed to start period the 24th acvording to app so is this 612 days before period that could benimplantation cramps!? I mean, if nto ill start bleeding tonight/tomorow. So whatevs right!? Killing time

Trying To Be Hopeful!

Hello, Today I've learned our 3rd IVF (in vitro fertilization) transfer has failed. The other two were chemical pregnancies (I was carrying). This one was a BFN. It's probably better that way, but still hard. My wife and I have been trying for 3 1/2 years. Besides the transfers, we've also done undergone 9 IUI's between us. That resulted in two miscarriages after around 9 weeks, for her. My wife, Danni, is 32 and I am 33 years old. My wife has gone through every test you can imagine. And everything seems to come back normal, which is odd because the miscarried embryos also came back normal. I guess that's unexplained infertility in a nutshell. We only have 2 more frozen embryos. One is normal but another came back as inconclusive, so it's a "wild card." They didn't have enough to test. We're deciding whether to take a month off, or keep going. It's physically and emotionally exhausting (plus financially, but trying not to think about that). And it's all kept secret, because it's too painful to keep telling people it didn't work. So no one really knew about this- except my mom and dad. We're also trying to figure out whether to put the last two in together, or to separate them. Does anyone have any advice on "wild card" embryos? Or doing two at once? Part of me is worried the "wild card" might affect the healthy one negatively. Can that happen? It's really our last ditch effort- before we either shell out more money for sperm and IUIs... or adopt. You would think having two uteruses we would have gotten somewhere by now. But I guess life doesn't work like that. It's so frustrating and disheartening. And we're at the age where babies are all over Facebook and it seems so easy for other people- even other lesbians who do IVF (in vitro fertilization) (I know two who have two kids already). It's hard and would love to hear any advice. Thank you so much!! Allison and Danni

Hey guys! I just started my stims on the 14th and have my first followup scan tomorrow to see how my ovaries have reacted thus far. I'm nervous and excited all at the same time!! I was actually supposed to stim in march but due to a cyst that cycle had to be put on hold. Were doing a FET cycle, so transfer is 5 weeks after retrieval (the end of may).

Anyone else doing a spring IVF cycle and super nervous??

**crossing my fingers the first cycle works!!
