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! for Sale

Missed period bfn

Hello everyone, I could really use some advice, ttc a year now, I have one son 25 years old and my husband also has a boy 27 years old, I had my last period 29th June, I'm never late with regular cycles, about 3 days after that period ended we had intercourse x 1 as I have a feeling I ovulate early and decided to stop following apps, the following morning I had spotting which I found very strange as I never spot after a period, I guess it was the intercourse and so soon after period stopped, the spotting lasted about a week stopping and starting, I wasn't expecting af as I thought I had longer bleeding so my next period would be late but I actually missed last months period so I put that down to the longer bleed, however I have had sore breasts and dizzy on off with nausea came today, my breasts are heavy and fuller still a little tender sore, some facial flushing today but the strangest thing is I have had no cm, completly dry, I always spot brown cm before af religiously every month but zero since before 29th June period, feeling hot after waking up, I'm not charting just checked temp last 2 mornings as feeling hot, took opk as app says I'm close to ovulation, for 4 days wednesday to saturday flashing smiley face on CB opk, took pregnancy test last Tuesday at docs and early Wednesday morning at home but both negative, I feel different this time, i can't remember my last pregnancy symptoms 25 years ago lol but one thing that definitely sticks in my memory is I tested with a home pregnancy test then which was negative and when my then boyfriend brought me to the gp I was over 3 months pregnant with DS, anyone have these signs and still get bfp

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.
