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!

Af officially late

My af is now officially 1 day late and the spotting has finally stopped. My test lines are getting really dark and the digital was positive. Feeling very hopeful.

I've signed up to a midwife and I'll be checking in with my ob as soon as possible.

Life is moving forward, hopefully for the best.

Infertility Cuts Deep

Okay. I can't believe I'm even writing this post, but I need to sort through some feelings I'm struggling with so here it goes. 

My best friend is pregnant. It was unexpected. She called me crying her eyes out. My heart just broke for her, and I supported her as best I could. It wasn't about me or my situation at all. This was my friend and she needed me, nothing else mattered.

However, as the days go on and I try to help her through the stages of how she's going to proceed, the more emotions I have about my own situation. Generally I've been in a very good place and am comfortable that we're trying everything we can but what will happen will happen. This has sent me into a few days of "what if, what if", and I hate it because it's so selfish. Her situation has zero to do with me. But we're very close and see each other daily, so I find myself wondering... What if she decides to terminate but I'm successful with our FET and she has to see my pregnancy progress and it's painful for her to think of what could have been, even if it turns out it wasn't the right situation for her at the time? Or in contrast, what if she remains pregnant and I am not successful, and it becomes painful for me to see her only a month ahead of where I would have been? Or what if she remains pregnant and I'm also successful? Will she resent that I have a support system and a husband when she's on her own? Will I be seen as a copycat pregnancy for those who don't know my background? 

At the end of the day, none of these things matter. I pray she is able to do what's best for her and feel confident in her decision, and I know that she wants the best for me as well. We're very open in talking about everything, but we're only human: it's easily possible to be happy for someone but weep for yourself. Does any of this make sense? I feel like the worst friend in the world for these feelings. But they are just that -- feelings. It's all about how you choose to handle them. So for now I'm trying to process them in healthy ways: writing them here, praying, meditating, and yes maybe there's a good cry in my future.

If you have insight I'd love to hear it. If you think I'm a bad person please keep it to yourself -- trust me, I already feel like crap for even writing this down.

Anyway. The world certainly doesn't revolve around me and life goes on. I just want to be a good friend and not fall into depression at the same time. Just pray for us all.

Lets get to it

Hi to all!

To all that are trying to concieve, all that have concieved, all that are trying to concieve again and to all that love having a good lurk. Which was me until recently. 

So here is a little bit of my back ground. I'm 27 and my partner is 25. We have been together for 5 and a half years.  I have a child from a previous relationship. He was a surprise to my freshly 19 year old self. A year later I left his Dad and started my "Single Mother" journey until I meet my partner shortly after. 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Endo. Not long after I unexpectedly fell pregnant for the pregnancy to end days after finding out. I wasn't wanting another baby at that point in time but from that moment that is all I wanted. My partner not so much at the time understandably.

Long story short 6 months ago he was finally ready to start talking about it and with in a month we started "not trying, not protecting". He wants it to naturally happen. But quietly I was trying! I had monitured my cycle for months! 30-35 day cycle then went to a 30-32 day cycle plus the lovely O pains I had to a T when I was ovulating! So I made sure to be extra keen to BD those nights. Up until last month he was okay with the whole "it will happen when it happens" then it is now "when's it going to happen?" Men! So bloody impatient! (hehe) Last month was our first month of really trying. Then I started spotting at 13DPO. Within 24 hours AF had made her arrival known. I cried... alot. I really thought last month was the month. I've been tracking my DPO and it was all so different to the previous cycles.

Now I have started doubting if I had my O date right. 6 months and nothing. BD every second day of my furtile window to every day of my firtle window. My son was a broken condom! go figure... So this month I bought OPK's and got a blazing positive this morning with a few niggly moments, so if im correct 24-36 hours I should ovulate, which works out about right to my tracker app. BD mission in full force (get it) over the next few days! 

This is the month I don't symptom spot (insert eye roll here), track my DPO (lol) and just relax and have fun with the process. It will happen when it is ment to happen. (fingers crossed with in 24-36 hours).

After reading sooo many blogs & posts I have become obessed with it all. So I decided to write my own blog. Write down what and how I'm feeling without annoying the shit out of my friends & family. Also keeping it a little private within my actual life. YES I know. Writing it on a forum where potentialy 1000's of people can read isn't so private. But this is a community of support for women who all want to achieve the same outcome. Where we can sit and read for hours (yes, guilty of hours on here) and not not get sick of the topic. 

Any way, I've rambled on enough so i'll end it here in hopes that this can be therapeutic for myself and maybe others because I have a feeling this is going to be quite a long jurney for my partner and I. Also if any of this helps any one who reads it, weither they relate or have a laugh then i've done a good deed. I want this to mainly be light hearted, there may be a few moments of seriousness but I need to keep my sanity and remember everything is a process.

So heres to hoping that the freshly bought bottle of Grey Goose that is in my freezer stays un-opened for another 9 months. 

 

For future blogs there will be a chance of swearing, sacasim & 99.99% whinging.............. :)

 

Day 10

hardest get up ever! Backache headache 6hrs sleep now I’ve got a 10 and a half hour day shift at work (I work in a day Nurser!) when I get up I just look at the ovulation test sat on the shelf above my mirror and hope and pray its all I can do.

26 Dayyyys!

The FET countdown is underway! I'm a few days into my Lupron injections like a total champ. I finish up bcp tomorrow, and after AF (hopefully the last for many months) I add in my estrogen supplementation. 

I'm really glad that we decided on the clomid stim protocol that has to be done with FET, bc I am way less stressed than I was during stims/retrieval. It's just so nice to know that we already have embryos, so that's half the battle behind us, and I'm experienced with the SQ injections this time around too which takes some pressure off. We'll see how I'm feeling once we get to the PIO IM ones, lol, but for now I'm pretty excited and minimally stressed. Really now I just have to keep my wits about me and not fall down the "what if" wormhole. You can't know until you know! No sense getting so worked up over infinite scenarios when only one will come to pass.

Thanks to all of you who are still, after all these years, supporting me in this journey. I really truly hope to be able to share good news soon. 

Faith, trust, & baby dust.

Dreams

im wonderig is it normal to have weird dreams in this tww! I really want to sleep but I just keep dreaming and being restles, I’m trying de stressing activities before bed to take my mind off of things but it doesn’t appear to be working.

Need clomid for cycle 2

 Hello, 

mom brand new to this blogging thing but figured I’d give it a shot. I’m 35 and DH 34, unexplained fertility issue but I have one son from a previous relationship. We had blood work and other labs done per RE and everything checked out ok. She prescribed Clomid 50mg, Trigger And Progestrome Supp Plus our but was unsuccessful and I was heart broken. 

We’d like to try again but it’s expensive... we d have to save for another month or two considering we pay out of pocket for all meds/procedures.  if you have left overs could you please hit me up gkfkfam at gmail I’d greatly appreciate it. Only real positive responses please.  God Bless... all the best ladies. 

Ache

Not sure what this is but got terrible lower back pain, like a constant ache. It eases if I’m sitting but when I’m up and about it’s a constant. I wouldn’t know if this a usual part of my cycle as I’m usually on a cocktail of pain meds for my disability so who knows.

off out for a cream tea to celebrate our anniversary and to keep my mind off of things.

TWW

so I’m halfway through my two week wait. I’m being caustiously optimistic I can’t get my hopes up too much. We bought pregnancy tests today in preparation. 

Any support and advice great received.
