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!

AF due today... But..

AF is due today.. last week i had cramping for like 4 days! I didnt know why.. my cervix was getting lower and lower so i figured i was out.  And this morning i can hardly even reach my cervix!! and i feels significantly softer then the past couple of days?! But negative test this morning. I think i see the FAINTEST line..Probably my mind just playing tricks on me. i know im probably out. But Wth is going on lol.


Please please please reply. i just need somebody to talk to!!

What's with my bb's?

my bbs have been sore since 1dpo. now its 13dpo and bb pain is considerably worse in the mornings and ache all day. af is due tomorrow. usually i get sore bbs two or three days before af. this time its lasted 2 weeks. dunno what to think. i dont feel pregnant at all. just my usual moodiness and headaches. haven't even tested yet coz im trying to force myself to wait out tomorrow and few days after. (my af is kind of irregular). anyone else got this?

Opinions Please-

Hi all


I just wondered if people could give me some opinions regarding having a couple of glasses of red wine in your 2ww. Since ttc I have been watching everything, I am healthy anyway, don't drink a lot anyway and do regular excercise (even calmed down on this incase anything affects implantation) but tonight I have a party and not sure whether to have 2 glasses at the most, Im terrified incase it would affect anything. I am 10dpo. I feel like since TTC i am restricing myself to a lot of things and maybe just going too far.

Thanks peeps xx

Sore BB's. Still??!

What is the longest your bb's have been sore after AF? My bb's have been noticeably sensitive since 2 Aug. What are the odds of being PG and still have a last period?

Please help me understand this EWCM!

Hi everyone!

I use the Clearblue Advanced OPK and had 5 dasy of flashing smileys beginning 8/6, thensolid smiley on 8/11. DH and I BDed EVERY SINGLE DAY from 8/6 through 8/13 and rested last night 8/14. I used to see EWCM every month before TTC, but swe started TTC last month and suddenly-- no EWCM.

So, I JUST saw EWCM today: 8/15. I believe I am 3dpo--so why am  seeing EWCM NOW? Is this normal? Was the clearblue wrong about my O days? We're BDing again tonight just in case--but what do you all think? 

Oh a little more info: Today (8/15) I have had these weird pains that feel nothing like my usual ovulation cramps on left side. Never felt these pulsing pains before in my life. Also, during the time I had the solid smiley (actually on 8/12 & 8/13) I had the WORST ovulation pains--they weren't the usual annoying, they were downright INTENSE and uncomfortable to sit through. PLEASE help to shed light on any of this, This is our 2nd month TTC. What do you think about the EWCM today 3PO??

Avoiding the sticks


DH and I have been TTC for 5 months. We waited 1 month after I stopped taking the pill after being on it for 7 years. I am 10-11 DPO (I either O'd on cycle day 14 or 15, I'm not sure which, but I think it was day 14) and this month I had NO signs of pregnancy. AF cramps started on 8 DPO, got worse over 9 and 10 DPO, and have gotten significantly lighter today, 11 DPO. I POAS on 8 DPO and of course it was negative. I feel like AF is coming so I am trying to keep myself from taking another test until at least Monday (AF is due on Sunday). I'm sure anyone reading this is thinking, "Oh, that just sounds like classic PMS." However, I am confused because I had a 0.2 degree jump in my BBT this morning making it higher than it has been all cycle. I will have to wait and see what happens over the next few days.

My sister has had two miscarriages and has been TTC for 3 years and my sister-in-law took over a year to get pregnant. I consider myself to be in great health but I am worried that genetics may keep me from having a successful pregnancy. I am also worried that my husband's use of supplements for weightlifting (No HGH's or anything dangerous, just protein, amino acids, and weight loss summplements) may be effecting his sperm count/mibility but I don't know how long I should wait before I talk to him about getting tested. I have no problem getting myself tested, but I know DH will not think it is necessary until we have been trying for longer.

Also, today I tested the theory that a OPK will show a positive if you are pregnant. First of all, this is totally NOT reliable. Although an OPK MAY show an LH surge when you are pregnant, it could also show no surge at all. Plus, if OPK's were accurate in testing for pregnancy, why would they sell two different kinds of tests? Ok, I will step off from my soap box now.


Holy Cramps Batman, My Temps Are CRAZY!

My chart is set on Fertility Awareness Method but when I switch it to Advanced, O day shifts by 4 days??? Needless to say, O day is seriously in question and therefore, I don't really know how many DPO I actually am. What I know for certain is that I have some serious cramping today, my temperature just seems to keep going up and nausea/burping is getting ridiculous! :)

Yesterday was another BFN day as was today, not a huge surprise especially if O day was actually a few days later than my chart suggests, then I'm only 10 DPO.  AF is due on the 19th, so I'm hoping that an FRER test may show a BFP tomorrow.

My gut instinct is that O day was not the 3rd, I think it was the 5th because I had what could have been ovulation pain. 

I don't get cramps this early in my cycle.  In fact, I rarely get cramps until after AF has shown up.  This isn't "normal" for me and neither is the lotiony CM and soaring temps.  None of this is normal for me so something is defintely going on.  HURRY UP 19th... I don't know how much more frustration I can take!

Need help, not sure which day my cycle starts

Ok so I started spotting on Wednesday of last week.. Barely spotted Thursday, Friday, and Saturday had barely anything. My AF was scheduled to start on Saturday... Sunday, after a chiropractic adjustment, AF came back at full force... so what is the first day of my cycle? Wednesday or Sunday?


beta results are in ...


so i went in on Tuesday, August 13th for my first beta test - 281!!

I went in this morning for my second beta test - 634!!!

I am beyond thrilled and excited! Hubby and I feel so blessed and really hoping the rest of my pregnancy goes smoothly!

My nurse is supposed to contact me later today to schedule my ultrasound! I think that's when it will really hit me when I get to hear my babies heartbeat or heartbeats!

My hubby and I are convinced we are having twins! haha but we will be happy with one or two happy and healthy babies .. cant imagine there being three but if it is ok!

so so so happy!! :D :D

Until next time xoxo ....

Anyone wanna wait w/me? I'm 1DPO! Woo!

So the TWW begins for me ladies. Felt like forever since my hopes were crushed by AF's arrival. 

Now, after showing a VERY positive (or 8 positives; since I'm totally insane) OPKs they finally went back to being negative last night After being positives for exactly 30hours.

i am beyond excited! I FEEEEEEEL like this is it! Finally! It's only our second (or third, yet again depending on how you look at it) month trying but it already feels like YEARS! mainly because I know I don't ovulate and drop eggs EVERY month. Only some..

I would love to have a buddy with me for the TWW somewhere close to where I'm at to compare symptoms,obsess over squinters, etc.

A short and happy TWW to us all! FINGERS CROSSED!!!!
