In your trying to conceive, pregnancy and parenting Journey, you will be shocked how useful the internet can be! Anything can be found if you look for it. We have used the internet for everything from finding our donor, researching method and talking to other ladies trying for a baby, to setting up and writing this blog. Here’s some sites that we have found useful!
Baby And Bump – my very favourite forum on the internet! Here you can find sub forums for any child related issue that you can think of. Right from Waiting To Try, Trying To Conceive, Long Term Trying To Conceive, Assisted Conception and Pregnancy Loss, through to forums for pregnancy, breastfeeding, formula feeding, birth stories and behavioural issues. I love Baby and Bump!
Fertility Friends – A lovely forum that is generally more geared towards to assisted conception side of things
Fertility Friend – The Trying to Conceive Bible! A great place for charting your body signs and your temperatures, and charting your symptoms in the two week wait. They also have a very useful Ipad app
Countdown To Pregnancy – Another useful site for charting. They have forums and free tickers too
Two Week Wait – A great site where people who get a positive test share their “symptoms” of pregnancy on a day to day basis. WARNING! This site will make you think you are pregnant… every month… even when you didn’t try…
The UK Sperm Donor and Recipient Hangout – A place for donors and recipients to link up.
