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!

Hello last time I had intercourse was in January and I've had a normal 5 day period since then but this months the first to days were normal but the rest were light. Also around the time of my period I was on antibiotics and had a allergic reaction to it then I was given another antibiotic but was sick to it as well. Now I'm having dry cough and throwing up. Am I pregnant? What could be wrong with me?

Overweight and Discouraged

hello, all. I am a long time lurker that is looking for some advice. 

Some background. I stopped taking the pill in January 2016 after being on it since 2008. While I have been period tracking using the Ovia app for over a year, DH and I really began TTC this past April with no success thus far. I am 295lbs and consider myself a healthy person other than the number on the scale. My diet is full of veggies and fruits and I do not consider myself a sedentary person. I knew that, while my cycle is regular and came back regular as soon as I stopped taking BC over a year ago, my weight may be affecting my ovulation. I have been using OPKs for three months, and I never get a positive reading.


I wanted to know if I should just bite the bullet and go to see the OBGYN? I'm afraid that they're going to tell me I'm too heavy to TTC, or refuse to offer me fertility help until I lose weight. 

What do you ladies think?

BFN at 17dpo. Please help!

I'm 25 years old and been TTC for a year now after an early miscarriage around this time last year. According to a clear Blue advanced OPK I had peak fertility smiley face on 12th July indicating I would be ovulating on the 13th. I also experienced EWCM so I knew it was accurate. 

Anyway, Its now 30th July which makes me 17dpo (3 days late). Took a clear blue digital with FMU and it came up as not pregnant? I have a really soft, closed cervix, back ache if I've been on my feet a little too long and slight cramping, and a breakout that's a little bit worse than usual (but that could be due to anything really).

I went back out and bought a red dye early response test, after experiencing slight nausea that afternoon and an increase in creamy cm, and took it in the evening with yet another negative result.

Just looking for a bit of advice really. Any light that can be shed would be really appreciated. Has anyone experienced something like this and got a BFP later on?

43 and going to give it one last try

I'm 43 and we have decided to give it one last go. I have a 2 1/2 year old who was a very big surprise. I also have a soon to be 26 year old.     So a little about my cycle this past month (it's goofy). My periods are like clockwork. My cycles run 27-29 days, very predictabl. This month: last period was 7/4. On 7/19 I started spotting until 7/24, never enough to fill a pantyliner, 2 of those days were a little heavy, but nothing major. Spotting stopped in the afternoon on 7/24 then on 7/25 had very little then nothing. On 7/26 I had an orgasm (sorry tmi) no penetration and I bled after (not normal for me). Nothing since. Now all this got me thinking maybe I'm preggers! Of course we all know once that's in your head you start feeling symptoms, which may or may not be there. So I have had symptoms. 3 tests and all of them bfn. Af due today and bfn today. I guess there's still a chance, but I would think I would have a bfp considering timing of everything. Makes me realize that this could be my last chance to start trying. I'm looking for any advice on helping my body out. We are only giving ourselves til the end of the year, not a lot of time so I want to do anything I can to help my body out. Tia!!

Break through bleeding

Hi. According to my ovulation kit I peaked on Wednesday. On Wednesday and Thursday I had light pink spotting and ewcm. The following day I no longer had spotting but a sudden gush of red blood that seeped through my clothes. It only happened once. I had intercourse 4 days before my peak and on my peak day. My concern is that I won't conceive because of the red break through bleeding that occured 2 dpo. Has anyone had break through bleeding right after ovulation and still got a bfp? I am 39.

Getting to that Point...

After stopping birth control near the end of March, my fiance and I still have not been able to conceive. I feel like I really underestimated how long it would take for us since I had an acceidental pregnancy last August that ended in an early miscarriage. It's been so draining getting my hopes up every month, trying to get my menstrual cycle regulated, and getting those BFNs month after month. I'm overweight and just feeling like it's all kind of hopeless. I feel like no matter what I try, I continue to gain weight and my thyroid levels have been tested and came back all normal. I'm ready to just stop trying indefinately. I need a break and am starting to feel depressed. I mean, I'm not going back on birth control, but I'm not going to get my hopes up each month or track symptoms either. I feel like at this point, if it's meant to be, it will happen eventually, but I certainly am not holding my breath at this point. Fiance and I both work, but there's no way we could ever afford any kind of infertility medical help. We may look into adoption in the future, but no telling how expensive that would be either....Oh well, I guess some things just aren't meant to be. 

CD42 Since D&C, lotion CM, No sign of AF, anyone similar boat?

Hi, first timer posting. I miscarried at 5 weeks 4 days,I had a D&C on 16th June, bedded a few times without monitoring ovulation and temps and now I am on CD42, BFNs and tons of creamy CM that rotates from watery lotion to thickish lotion (CM been like this since and roughly a few days after D&C). Nipples are slightly tingly...but thats it. how long did it take others to get their AF back after miscarrage?? is it normal to go this far into the CD considering others that far along see AF roughly 5-6 weeks or before.

I don't know what's going on.. any ideas?

I am always a 1 or 2 days on cycle with my period tracker. Per my tracker I was scheduled to ovulate 6/30/2017. Me and DH baby danced on 7/1 and 7/2. I am now 12 days late and have been experiencing period like cramps and lower back pain for almost 2 weeks. I also have had a headache one 2 occasions, very minimal breast tenderness, extreme moodiness, a few days where I had to nap 2 or 3 times during the day, and nauseated once or twice. I have taken 2 HPT which both were negative (as of 3 days ago) and today I started having bright red blood. I assume i have started my period but normally it's heavier than what I am experiencing. Now not to get off subject but my DH had cancer as a teenager and was told that due to his treatment, he would have to try harder to have kids. With that being said I am extremely scared to tell him what's going on as I do it want to let him down :( does anyone have any idea what is going on with me? 

I "took a month off" and it happened!!! Got my rainbow BFP!!!

Please pray for a sticky one!!! It was just 2 months ago that I watched my first ever BFP get fainter and fainter before the bleeding started.

Last night I got a BFP at about 12-13 dpo. It was there this morning too! Doesn't seem real, and I am scared to even breath. Hopefully I will be able to relax and enjoy every minute.

Will post my BFP story soon :)
