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!

I just want to be a mommy!

This is by far one of the most challenging times in my life.  I am 39 years old TTC for the first time. We have tried for over a year, to no avail.  I am on my second IUI procedure and currently in the TWW.  As a I read some of the blogs on here it amazes me how many women are going through the exact same thing.  One thing that is striking me is that I am not as diligent and detailed with timing and maximizing best possible outcomes.  Thank you all for sharing your stories because I am learning a ton and am taking away some tips and tricks I've read along the journey to conceiving.  Any advice, guidance, and encouragement you have is certainly welcomed!

If you can relate please give me anything!

Hey guys.. im new to this website & i just wanted to tell alittle about myself. My name is lexi and I am 24 years old, this is my 2nd cycle ttc & I have awesome faith. Today is ovulation and I had intercourse Monday the 12th and yesterday the 15th. Yes I am aware that it is too early to test or even have any signs of pregnancy .. but I did feel tight in my pelvic area any ideas ..please give me any advice for a smoother two week wait. WISH ME BABYDUST lol.


hello everyone.

Im new here. I am 41 years old with a 9 year old daughter and have been TTC for 20 months now, without any luck.

i’ve been thinking IVF since Im not a spring chicken anymore.

I started this really watery period on day 23 of my cycle which is pretty weird.

i’ve been reading here, but I would like to know what BDO and CD and all these 3 letter thing mean. Is there a glossary somewhere?

and Also I have a feeling that Im pregnant, my period is just soooo watery and light and soon that It doesnt sound like a period.

any ideas?


great news, well I’m not pregnant yet still waiting to find out in 12 days time but if this is not successful (still hoping it is) then we have been given an NHS IVF round!! 

3 dpo

 I’m on 3dpo and feeling very tired and crampy. This is my second cycle on Femara. Anyone out there on 3dpo that we can track our tww symptoms together?

TTW No PMS symptoms


This is my first time blogging about my actual personal life... I was never the type to put my business out there but I am curious about who else is in the same boat as I am... I am so close on giving up but there is still hope left in me and maybe from reading other people's stories will help me regain my spirits. I miscarried last April.. I was three months pregant when I miscarried. It took me a year to concieve. My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive for the past six months with no success. This month I was certain that we BD on my ovulation day (I never really charted because my cycle is never the same) My period is due on 3/20, I have little to no symptoms. Normally I would have really bad cramps, headaches, and really sore boobs but I have none of those. I took a pregnancy test last night with a blue dye test (I know blue dye tests sucks but I grabbed whatever I could grab first) and it had a verrrrry faint line but I am not sure if it is an evaporation line. I will test again this weekend.. Hopefully I get a BFP on my birthday this Sunday :)  

Let’s take a poll...

• Ovulation - March 7

• A day later noticed a huge increase in CM. Continued for 5 days 

• 3 DPO - moderate cramps 

• 6 DPO - pink CM, enough to fill a liner. Just once.

• 7 DPO - pink CM once in morning. Last time.

• 9 DPO - bright red spotting after BM. Just once.

• 9 DPO - BFN 

Symptoms - FATIGUE, bloating, dizziness spells, tingling in breasts (no soreness).

This is our second cycle of trying after a blighted ovum (MC) in December.

Thanks Guys <3

TWW 5 dpo

who else is in the TWW??!?!? 

Today’s the day

i had a positive ovu test today so it’s treatment day. My partner can’t be with and I’m super nervous and emotional about this. I know it can’t be helped. Plus my work we’re really off about it all this time made me feel bad for wanting to go.

IVF seminar in Melbourne tonight

Hi guys,  itd been a while since ive posted but just thought id drop and and say hi to everyone . really  excited because im taking two girlfriends to an ivf seminar in Melbourne  tonight (monash ivf glen waverly)  as we are all really interested to go.  Each friend has just recently had surgery for their endometriosis ... one as recently as last Wednesday and the other 3 weeks ago,   so i am driving them both in and we are all looking forward to going and getting some good information.  Its nice to do this together as we have all been in the ttc trenches  together for years. Anyway just really looking forward to it with them and being their support. 

How is everyone else doing lately?  Trying anything new? Sperm meets egg program? changing up your diet or vitamins or bd schedule? Taking a ttc holiday somewhere romantic maybe?  

Hope everyones well. 

Love alexandra
