2ww and going absolutely mad...

I am only 2 days away from finding out the news hoping and praying to God every time I go to the bathroom I don't see my AF lol. Our RE told us not to test at home and to wait the full 10 days after transfer to take a blood test and see if it worked.

But its like everything is happening during this "short" waiting time. One of my friends just had her baby early this weekend, "pleasant reminder" that we were trying for a year before she was even married, and now she's popped out a bb, I'm happy for her but just funny the timing of it you know? Then everybody wants to make plans with us- birthdays, trips, hangouts- you name it! I was really hoping we could just take it easy and keep on the DL and be forgotten for a little you know? To just disappear for a while without anybody noticing but its just not happening. I'm constantly wondering what I'm feeling or not feeling. Thinking hey! I've had much less achne than normal for this time of the month! to shit- I just had a mood swing and very irritable.... I feel like all this definitely can't be good for anybody trying to be pregnant, so much for all those saying to "just relax" yeah right! I need some serious help.

Re: 2ww and going absolutely mad...

  • I'm there with you, I'm 3 days into my 2WW and it's so confusing when everyone says relax but keep busy, isn't that a contradiction.
    if I'm relaxing, I'm thinking that every twinge must be something but if I'm busy I worry that I'm overdoing it.
    it is such a tough time, but we have been through tougher so just hang in there for a little bit longer and you will find out that news in no time ( haha probably not, even that last 24 hours is going to feel like eternity)

    sending you lots of positive vibes

  • @natalie4oscar thats super exciting - how many to you retrieve this cycle?  Did you like this protocol?  I updated on our rodeo thread, don't want to ruin the 2ww mood ;)
    So thrilled everything went well for you!  Have some pineapple core drinks through the week, it couldn't hurt!  Did you do any acupuncture.  The advice I received was dont walk around barefoot as your feet are connected to your blood flow to the uterus...something like that ;)  But you always want to keep it warm...so no ice cream ;)  Good thing they told me!  Hope you're not going mad and you enjoy taking it easy!!
