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!

1st Cycle of IVF

Today is 7dp 5dt for me (7 days pass a 5 day blastocyst).

Not sure if ny eyes are playing tricks on me...did i see a faint BFP?

I have been having cramps on and off since ET and AF is around the corner. Bete is due next week..

Can someone help!!!


So excited!!!!!!!!! 3rd baby on the way, however 5th pregnancy. I'm due November 24th, 2018! 

7 weeks and 2 days

I love sundays now, for the fact that i get to enter a new week of pregnancy. I get to read how my baby is developing and i get a little bit of a relief That i didn’t miscarry(i know here i go again) . So far, my symptoms have been having nausea, fatigue and mild cramps; which by the way is scaring me! But I’ve been reading that it’s due to my uterus stretching. My job had been a little stressful for the past two weeks and I’m trying my best for it not to get to me! 

i hope everyone is doing great with their pregnancy or motherhood! 

Xoxo Itzzy. 

What the Huh? Cycle Out of Whack.

Everything I've read warned me not to expect a normal cycle in the weeks following natural miscarriage. Far be it from my body to contradict all those ladies’ cautionary posts: my hormones are a mess and it appears my cycle is effed.

I’m on “cycle day“ 26 if you count the first day of my miscarriage as day 1 (which I’m doing since I ovulated around day 14 after MC if my OPKs were to be believed).

This week I have experienced exotic pelvic cramps not unlike the stretching I experienced for the 7 weeks leading up to my loss but a little nastier, so I chalked that up to my uterus shrinking back down to its usual size. Bonus: for 2 days it felt like there were pins in my hip bones and (how about some TMI) there was tan discharge following BM for a few days, which I’m guessing is from old leftover blood or an upset cervix getting agitated by poo next door. My boobs are itchy. I ate chocolate like a  wild boar today and I’m hideously bloated. 

Basically I feel like a mutant. 

That‘s all. Just needed to vent real bad. Womanhood!



TTC - struggling

first time posting, although I have been stalking these blogs for months.

in the 2ww for cycle 5 and pretty sure it won't be successful. Just feel like my bbt are too low post ov even though they are above cover line.  

REALLy struggling! How do you's do it? i feel like a failure. I genuinely don't think i can do anymore. Okps, temping, sex at The right times, vitamins, vitex, b6, preseed, you name it, iv done it.

My sister has a 3month baby after first month trying.other friend first month. Another friend 3months preg.Best friend Just announced, 3rd Baby.

We bought a house big enough to have a family and now I feel stupid, like we're never Gona fill this house.

I just need to rant. just end up crying to my partner after we've had a drink and I feel bad always off loading to him.

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

Vitex Chasteberry

Anyone out there ever take Vitex with Chasteberry and then get BFP? I believe I suffer from low progesterone and read that this can help? Anyone have any input?

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!! 

5 DPO • I! Feel! Nothing!

Dear TTC Club Members,

When I squeeze my boobs I feel nothing.

When I sit very still waiting for my uterus to twinge or flutter I feel nothing.

When I check my CM or poke at my cervix I feel nothing.


When I pause thinking my stomach might soon growl with cravings or queasiness I feel nothing.

When I sniff at the air to see if I have an enhanced sense of smell I feel nothing.

When the babies, dogs and cats of friends stare blankly at me I feel nothing.

When I strain my ears to hear Mother Gaia whispering the motherly truths of the universe I feel nothing. 



Just kidding.

Pretty obvious that I’m not.
