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!

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.

Smells Like Glue?

Still have not tested as I'm afraid for that BFN. I've listed every symptom that came to mind of what might be related to the the TWW. It mostly boiled down to super tender boobs with slight coloration change that started to feel fuller and heavier as the days went, increase in smells, food aversion; then there was my feeling of being permanently pissed off with the world. My DS was super easy with slight coloration in BBs but no soreness, even leveled temper, 3 days of implantation cramping, and nothing else... no abundance of CM which is something normal for me and I have to reach in to check. If I do get a BFP here in a few days, they were not kidding when they say not all pregnancies are the same. Thing is, now I'm wondering about this glue smell I keep getting when I sit down to pee. Anyone else had this?

A Little Nervous... kind of hopeful... the TWW Countdown...

Last month, I had a chemical pregnancy. We had BD - used the pull out method - on 12/2 and ovulated 12/5. I got a BFP the day my cycle was due but started bleeding the next day. I thought it was implantation, but it got heavier and had some (TMI) clots. Even though we were not TTC it was still devastating to have a loss. Not sure if I will be getting a BFP later this month; part of me wants another kiddo, but we will see. We BD'd using the pull out method, but he stuck it back in instantly afterwards without urinating in between. This is how it goes: 1/3) EWCM when wiped, CP - SHOW. 1/4) EWCM, CP - SHOW 1/5) O'day. BD. Less EWCM, CP - High, soft, partially open. Fatigue - probably from being on the road for 2 straight days with little rest; I didn't need melatonin to sleep like I usually take. 1/6) 1DPO. Sticky CM. CP - High medium, closed. Increased libido, (TMI) had a little solo fun which I rarely do. Boobs a little tender (NEVER happens after ovulation; usually occurs a week before AF). Fatigue - no melatonin. Food aversion. 1/7) 2DPO. Dry CM. CP - High, soft, closed. Slight increase in libido, more solo fun. Wake up to a "popping" sensation on my right ovary but no pain. Boobs super tender. Crying about everything (movies I've seen 100xs, something I think is beautiful, songs, the fact my boobies/nips hurt, etc). Food aversion. Right now, it's mostly the super emotional and tender boobs that have me a bit curious. So we wait... to see... maybe I am... maybe I'm not. TWW Countdown

Feeling low

I actually still feel fine about my cycle. It's out of my hands at this point and I'm okay with that. But I've been in a lot of pain in one of my hips for the past 3? 4? days, and it is starting to wear on me. I feel very emotionally vulnerable and kind of want to cry. I've been fortunate in my life that I've never really had a chronic pain situation, but I understand now how it can wear on people. We've gotten pretty great at the PIO injections, but the night in question we hit what we think was my hip bone. It was in the appropriate area, but I'm not very big and those needles are pretty long. Anyway, the injection hurt like hell, and it hasn't really stopped hurting. It isn't swollen into a big knot anymore or anything, it's just a deep down pain, almost like nerve pain, and it has really limited my hip flexibility, which is hard for me since I have had to seriously modify my daily yoga practice. (Think crossing your ankle over your thigh to make a figure 4 -- that move is almost impossible for me now.) It's basically like I've triggered piriformis syndrome. Anyway, I started alternating ice and heat yesterday and that sort of helped. This issue doesn't respond to massage the way a normal injection soreness would. Meh, idk. I'm just feeling a little low about it, but I'm sure it'll go away... At least I hope it will. If not I'll have to see a physical or massage therapist or something. I wish I could hang at home and not move from the couch but ya know, life must go on! Anyway, enough of my complaining, though getting it off my chest has made me feel a little better. If you have any experience with really bad PIO pain please ease my mind and make me feel less crazy/hopeless?

Can an admin help me?

Hi! It seems that I cannot post comments. The captcha tool spins for infinity and never gives me any questions. There is no captcha to post a blog so I'm able to post here. Do I need to create a whole new profile? Anyway Spazzle, I saw your response before my post got deleted. I'm thinking of you today and wondering how things are going. <3

All I've Been Able to Conceive is a Bad Attitude...

My husband and I have been together for just over five years and finally tied the knot in August 2018. At first we just wanted to wait until we bought a house and put down some roots before starting a family. When that happened, we talked about it and decided to do a little more travelling and by the time we did that we were engaged. It was a quick engagement, only nine months and our first time TTC was on the first day of our Honeymoon. Mind you, the time change (went 10 hours ahead) screwed up my timing and the jet lag very well could have impacted my cycle. We are currently on month four TTC. It's been a lot harder than I thought. Not just to get pregnant but to handle myself when AF comes. At first I was unsure if I really wanted kids yet and then it happened. Last month AF was four days late (which has never happened before) and I had a variety of other symptoms. I was sure this was it. I waited until I was three days late to test and I saw that faintest hint of a line. I figured I would wait until the morning and test again with better urine. At 10:41 that night, AF showed her ugly face and I was destroyed. Now I know how badly I want it... I am currently 4 DPO and told myself I was not going to look for symptoms, which was clearly never going to happen. I have had light cramping since ovulation and this morning I woke up with a stuffed up nose and a tickle in my throat but I don't feel like I'm sick. It's November and I live in Canada so there's a good chance it's just a cold coming on, I know, but part of me hopes it's something else. I also have had steady CM since ovulation and I have this odd pain (not really painful, but for lack of a better word...) going from my vagina up into my uterus. It's sharp and quick. Very odd. I am trying so hard to not be discouraged but it's so hard when everyone around me is getting pregnant. People who aren't even trying and they are calling me in tears because they didn't want a baby. I need to be a good friend and be there for them, but it's getting harder to bite my tongue. Anyways, that's just the short version of the beginning of my journey. Hopefully in two weeks I will be posting with some amazing news. <3
