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!

Am I pregnant ?

So my last period was 2/19/19 lasted the regular 5 days, Always regular ect....My next period was suppose to start 3/13/19 and as of today I am 6 days late tomorrow will make 1 week late for me. My average cycle is 21 days. Im soo eager to know but this will be my 2nd baby If I get my BFP! Ive been keeping notes on how Ive been feeling and on 3/16/19 Ive did 3 test since I was late and they were all negative. Ive had slight mild cramping lower stomach area like right below navel. On 3/18 I woke up feeling hot almost sweaty, and Ive also notice Ive been having some bowel movements everyday and they seem to be getting harder to pass but thats nothing really new with me lol. but also last night on 3/18 I felt extremely nauseous like I was going to throw up but nothing was coming up I literately felt it in my throat. My bf thought it was the food but he didnt get sick at all. Tomorrow makes a whole week (3/20/19) with no period. Today 3/19/19 I feel extra bloated and I looked at my CM and its a white creamy color. I need some answers ladies


Hi, I had my embryo transferred 9 days ago. I'm having a left side pain. This is the second day and has been on and off. My lower abdomen cramps from time to time but no spotting, discharge or bleeding. Just worried about the pain on the left because i can feel it. My test date is due on Sunday 24th. I have come this far by Faith and I believe God will do it for me.

implantation cramps?

Hi everyone, new to the blog here so bear with me. My husband and I have been trying for a baby for 4 months now (our first!). I ovulated around March 6th and we DTD 5th, 6th, and 7th. The night of the 7th and into the next day I had a light pink clear discharge. So maybe I actually ovulated that day. Anyways on the night of the 11th I started getting cramps and they lasted for about 3 days on and off. I also currently have been having some white discharge. I seem to be very tired and more hungry. I don’t know if I’m just noticing more things because I’m looking for them or if I might be pregnant (fingers crossed). I’m supposed to start my period on the 21st abs am always on time give or take a day. The cramping I had that far before my period is not normal for me. Are there any others who have experienced something similar? I’m trying to wait as long as I can to take a test but it’s so hard!!

Currently avoiding my hpt’s...

Does anyone else HATE taking pregnancy tests? I took two yesterday. Both had disapearing positives followed by evap lines... AF was due on Saturday and now it’s Tuesday. Cramps are gone, cervix is so high I can barely reach it... and I have long fingers, and I have been mildly nauseous. I bought two more tests (different brand and pink). I used Healthy Accent (Food Lion store brand) blue dye test yesterday. I hate taking tests because it took 2 years for my BFP with my son and it’s been 6 months this time (TTC#2). I have had MANY BFN’s and only 1 BFP ever. I feel like if I don’t take a test, I can hold on to the hope that I am pregnant but if I get a BFN it’s depressingly final. Oh the things we put ourselves through... Happy Mardi Gras to you all! Go get some beads!!

The dreaded evaporation line...

Hello! I haven't been on here for quite some time, but now I'm losing my mind. AF is 2 days late, cervix is high and soft, boobs are feeling weird (not sore to the touch... just weird), I have had a headache, and my stomach was off today. I took a store-brand test this afternoon and I THINK I just got an evap line. It was a very very very faint blue line that did show up during the first 10 minutes but has gotten darker as the test sits. I should know better than to do this to myself. I did not use FMU and I have been drinking water all morning to try to get my headache to go away. The test came in a 2-pack so I'll be testing with FMU tomorrow. I wouldn't have tested at all except my cervix is high and soft. I have been tracking cycles for A LONG TIME and I know what my body does. My cervix always drops down and is very low for AF. I ovulated on Valentines Day (I think) and around 14 dpo my cervix started to drop and I got the classic cramps. Three days later the cramps are gone, cervix is high, and all the stuff I mentioned earlier. I got pregnant with my DS (my only pregnancy to date) after having an HSG so I am fearful that it'll never happen on it's own. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and try to calm myself down...

I’m back!

Hey all! I need a place to write into the abyss about this because I’ve got a lot of feelings tonight. I got married in October of 2016, we started trying in December and it took us 6 months to conceive our beautiful baby boy. He was born January 24th, 2018. We just started trying again for baby 2, and I’m on my third cycle. Technically we haven’t ever been not trying, we’ve just never prevented. I’m still breastfeeding, but my son is sleeping through the night for the most part. I’m going to start temping again this cycle probably tomorrow. I just had to buy a new thermometer. I feel so blessed to have or son, but now that we’re trying for #2, I’m having a lot of feelings. The first cycle back I had a very light period, and only a 4 day LP, the second cycle was a more normal period for me, but still only a 7 day LP. I’m nervous that I won’t be able to get pregnant again until I wean fully, and I know he’s not ready for it, and neither am I. I started taking maca root this cycle in hopes that it will help my LP. I’ve been taking my prenatal, switched to sunflower lecithin from soy lecithin this cycle, and flaxseed oil. We also bought some Conceive plus lube to try to help out that baby making session. I should be ovulating in the next week or so. Cycles have been around 33 days, but ovulation on like... day 26. It’s frustrating. I just needed to put this into the universe. “And with a patient heart, I will wait.”

Am I pregnant?

12dpo today!

Ovidrel 250

I am 9 days past my trigger and got a pretty clear BFP on a FRER. Is this my trigger or is this a true BFP? Ovidrel 250 is equal to about 6,500 HCG.
