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!

7 weeks and feeling rotten

After 11 unsuccessful iui’s, 1 egg retrieval resulting in 22 follicles (4 embryos), and 1 failed frozen embryo transfer, I’m finally pregnant. I’m currently at 7 weeks and taking 1ml progesterone in oil, plus 6mg estradiol per day. I’ve had normal symptoms which are exacerbated by the meds (nausea, heartburn, cramping), I’ve been feeling absolutely miserable the last few days. My body feels as though I have a bad cold, just aches and exhaustion. Hopefully this is not a bad sign but I genuinely feel like poo. Here’s to hoping my BFP sticks and remains healthy.

I'm just not sure

I'm not sure if this is a evaporation line or just a faint line but all three of my tests show this and I am four days late on my period.

Newbie here! (Just had my first SIUI)

Hi everyone, Ive just stumbled across this blog whilst scouring the internet desperately looking to chat to other people who are going through something similar, it can feel pretty lonely at times! Last Saturday I had my first SIUI and so im smack bang in the middle of the two week wait. I honestly thought once it was done, Id have a carefree two weeks and whatever would be would be. But thats not the case and I feel so up and down in my mood. Crippling anxiety one moment then flutters of anticipation and hope the next. Im obsessively in tune with every twinge my body makes and im driving myself crazy! Anyone else out there in the same position? :) C

IUI number two

So going in for IUI number two 05/08/2019. I can say I am definitely a little less nervous as I know what to expect. I am 40 my right ovary and tube are no good and I have been trying to conceive for two years with my new husband. We initially tried Letrozole to increase ovulation but still no ovulation on my left side. The next month we did Gonal-F 150 for CD2 - CD9 with trigger on CD12 IUI CD14. I had one follicle on my left side that was about 19 and three on my right that were 19 but only the left counts. IUI was done on April 10th. I think those were the longest 14 days of my life; unfortunately, on day 14 I started spotting and day 15 I started my cycle. Again this month we did Gonal F 75 (instead of 150) CD2 - CD110 with trigger on CD11 and IUI will be CD CD13. I will keep you guys posted. No notable symptoms yet from the trigger shot. I will say a little bummed as my US on Friday the 3rd of May showed 5 follicles in the Left ovary and now we only see one that is mature. I know it is still possible but the more there are the better the chances. I will leave this in the Lords hands and know He has a plan and a path for our family.

Month three of trying for a baby

Who knew how trying for a baby would take over every inch of your existence? As soon as my new husband and I had ‘the conversation’ and decided yes, we would no longer take all those steps to prevent us getting pregnant, damn, it’s all I can think about. I’ve been reluctant to use the term ‘trying for a baby’ as there is so much pressure as soon as you say it out loud – instead, I’ve told myself we are ‘not trying not to’. But who am I kidding – in an instant we became triers. Now, every waking moment seems consumed with the subject. Every ache and pain could be a suggestion that I’m pregnant. Every decision I take refers back to the possibility. Are these early signs of pregnancy? I’ve got a headache – could I be pregnant? My back aches – could I be pregnant? That carrot tasted a bit weird, but my husband didn’t agree – I MUST be pregnant. Can I book a holiday for next year? No, as I might be pregnant then, so we’ll have to get a last-minute deal… My period was three days late this month – OH MY GOD I’M DEFINITELY PREGNANT. How many pregnancy tests should I buy? Should I buy a pregnancy test or will it jinx it? Except, I wasn’t, I’m not. Gosh, the feelings! So many feelings. Disappointment, guilt, fear, a bit of relief (are we really ready?), certain relief because I had a small glass of wine at the weekend (taking over from the guilt of having a small glass of wine), then fear that I prevented a pregnancy because of that small glass of wine. Then, the physical side of menstruating – I am certain that my body is mocking me, saying “HA! You want to get pregnant? Well, you’re not, and we’re going to show you how much you definitely aren’t pregnant by giving you the WORST PMT you’ve ever had! HA!” I had to take a day off work due to the intense migraine that accompanied my period, so bad that I almost fell down the stairs.

5DPO - I am a newby here!

Hello ladies, My best friend told me about this site and said she lived on it while TTC her last 2 DS so here I am! I having been tracking everything during this cycle, hoping im not crazy. I PEAKED 3/15/19 around 12pm (OPK) and BD once that day (swaying for boy as I have 2 girls already) (I attached pictures of my OPK test strips I took twice a day to show my surge and BD 24hrs after 3/16) 3/17 - 1DPO - mild cramps & constant nausea all day. 3/18 - 2DPO - tender breast, cramps all day, and so sleepy all day I couldnt help fall asleep 2 hours before I normally do. Slept like a baby (lol) 3/19 - 3DPO - Woke up after sleeping 10hours and still completely exhausted, tender/heavy breasts, and mild cramps in the afternoon while I was at work. 3/20 - 4DPO - Constant twinges/pulling in my lower right abdomin, tender and heavy breasts, cramps like AF, still abnormally exhausted throughout the day and super gassy. 3/21 - 5DPO - Up 1am - 3am couldn't sleep, woke up with 3 pimples on my chin (havent had a pimple for 5 years), crampy, gassy, fatigue, boobs are still tender and heavy, Creamy CM like school glue (see pic TMI i know) I am hoping these signs all turn into a BFP!!!! Sending babydust to ALL :)

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!!
