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!

3dpo & EWCM?? Please help...

Hello - so according to FF I am 3 dpo today. This morning when I went to the restroom I noticed a little EWCM. I was a bit taken a back. This afternoon I noticed some more.... (it’s not a lot at all but enough for me to tell) Has this happened to anyone else? My DH and I BD just in case but I’m hoping it’s a good thing who knows? anyone else can relate?

Could I be pregnant? Or am I crazy?

Okay, so this is just my first month TTC. I’m 23 and pretty healthy other that a bad cigarette habit I am breaking.

I’ve been having “symptoms” but I haven’t been logging or tracking everything. Being 13DPO and still getting BFN is hard to know if I’m just WANTING these to be real symptoms, so in short summary this is what I’ve been experiencing in pretty close order of them occurring: PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK. 

- MAJOR toothache & tmj feeling. It was so painful I was in tears for 2 days thinking I had a rotten tooth, then just disappeared.
- swollen tonsils/ sore throat/ stuffy knows/ watery eyes. Mostly late at night and in the morning.
-exhaustion, which eventually faded. Some insomnia, which is pretty normal for me.
- VERY vivid dreams, sooo not normal for me.
- TMI mildly loose stool, nothing real solid for a couple weeks.
- AF like cramping at night a couple of days (no where near that time)
- very minor pinching feelings in low abdomen when sitting or walking up stairs.
- noticeably gassy a couple days... sorry. But actually had to find excuses to walk away from people cause it was pretty stinky.
- dull headaches off and on.
- maybe heightened sense of smell. The orange trees blossoming were very noticeable and I’ve never noticed in years prior but nothing else super noticeable.
- dull nipple pain and sometimes bottom sides of breasts if I squeeze or lay on them (boobies are small) feels like they are bruised off and on. I of course keep testing them.
- TMI but the other day I had a sudden gush of white lotiony CM. Nothing else super noticeable in that department. 

The past couple days all I’ve really had going on is
-sore nipples
- insomnia
- and very minimal cramping/ gassy after eating. 

I’m a Cancer, so I’m pretty sensitive anyway. Since I’m trying not to get my hopes up I pushed it aside, but I’ve cried at the Gilmore girls theme song ( I lost my mom a year ago), had very roller coaster feelings around my S.O., started a couple fights (he’s the most gentle person on the planet), abruptly started looking for a new job and rearranged my whole apartment. 

I’m either preggo or going through a quarter life crisis. 

WHAT DO YOU THINK? WHAT DID YOU GO THROUGH? I know it’s just the first month but 13DPO and a bunch of BFN has really got me down. 

AF expected in the next 4-5 days.


A Picasso Painted Heart

It's no secret that our failed ivf broke me into pieces. Big jagged pieces that don't fit together in any way that could be considered normal, but somehow I'm out walking around and passing for human. I can't believe it was only 3 weeks ago, since it feels more like this infinite black hole that stretches out into an eternity both behind and ahead of me. Do I remember what it was like not to feel this way? 

My best friend is reluctantly pregnant. It's the only way I know to describe it. She told me she wakes up in the night, crying and asking God why he let this happen to her. Said she didn't think her life would turn out this way. I just told her, "You and me both."

For the most part, people have stopped talking to me about it or asking, which is a big relief. Right after it happened I guess it became the kind of "news" that "trusted friends" tell other people, to the point some girl I only sort of know brought it up like a casual topic of conversation: "Yeah so I heard you guys were doing ivf and it didn't work out. I'm sorry. So how's that going?" I looked her dead in the eye and said, "I don't want to talk about this." I had to say it two more times before she stfu and stopped apologizing or trying to say more about it. Needless to say I've got very few "friends" trying to talk to me anymore.

So it's just us, with our pets, sitting on our front porch in the evenings going through the motions of people who have moved on. We haven't yet dove deep into the finiancial plan for the next FET. I don't think either of us has had the heart. But at least we're not crying all the time anymore. Instead it's like we're side stepping. Side stepping this big hurt that we both know is there so we've stopped talking about it, because what's the point. But things are better. It makes me wonder if this is the kind of break that doesn't heal right, like we're always going to have this painful scar. It sucks to think about.

I think I ovulated a few days late, or not at all, who knows. I got O pains but barely a hint of what I would consider fertile cm. I'm sure my body is still trying to figure out wtf happened. It's not like I think I have a shot or anything, I just really want normalcy.

Anyway, that's me. I'm not praying much anymore. I wouldn't even know where to begin. I try to quietly "sit" with God. My prayers don't have words anymore. Hopefully it still counts for something.

How do people do this?????????

Anyone else 4DPO?

Cycle 2 TTC. Cycle 1 was CP. This wait is awful! my OPK was smiley with CB and positive with clinicalguard  on Sun. We Bd Sun -Tues. hopefully didn’t O Sat! 

No sign of AF but BFN!

Hi! So AF was due 3/20 and still getting BFN.. I tested since last week and everyday after that. I don't have bad cramps how I normally do before AF comes on. I am getting light to mild cramps on and off. Really sore boobs, tender to touch. Could it be AF or could I be pregnant? I am waiting to see if it comes on by Monday.. Fingers crossed that I get a BFP! :)

Thinking 4dpo

This is my second cycle TTC, first cycle had a CP. So this Sat 3/17 I took my cheapie OPK at 9am, it was almost positive but not quite. Brushed it off, due to kinda getting fed up with obsessing over it , went on about my day. Sunday (6am) too a cheapie OPK and it was blazing positive so took my Clearblue Digital and got a smiley. So sometime between 9am Sat and 6am Sunday it turned positive, we BD Sun am-Tue. Think it was too late? Crossing fingers!! 

Colostrum at 8DPO

hello ladies!

New member here,  needed to reach out and see if anyone has experienced this before getting their BFP....

At 7dpo, my and SO were doing the deed and he mentioned how he got some liquid of playing with my breasts. (TMI sorry)... I just brushed it off.... 

At 8dpo, I noticed it. It was just a drop but it was there. From both of them not just one. 

**this would be baby #2, I did breastfeed my first but for o my 4 month, before they went completely dry. That was, 5 months ago. I have read  of infections that make u leak, but boobs just feel heavy and tender, no pain or warmth. ** 

9dpo, I was very gassy and burping, peeing alot, alot more CM than normal. 

10dpo, colostrum again, a few more drops than o monday, insomnia last night.. 


All this and negatives... maybe my body doesn't produce as much Hcg as others, since with my daughter I got a positive until I was a day late. 

I have also been recording my BBT, and my average temp is of has stayed at 98.17 the lowest, highest 98.70, since ovulation... 

Anyways, has anyone else experienced this and gotten good news???


Any info or comment helps :) 


UPDATE::11DPO *guess my boobs knew before my body could show me. Got my BFP today!
