2WW No.11

Posted by melmelmel , 01 November 2012 · 1193 views

    The Two Week Wait No.11

    So this is 2ww number 11 for me. I am purely venting and  writing for personal therapeutic effects however you are more than welcome to  read on.

    So number 11. Number 12 is next and then 13 after that...  and then I think what number will I get to? Not knowing is the hard bit.

    So currently I am 2dpo. It is the early stage of the 2ww I  like the most. I am still full of hope and excitement thinking that this is the  month for us. I feel full of energy and the dreaded PMS symptoms are still  several days away.

    Then the days go on. Every little twinge or pain gets my  full attention. Can it be? Am I imagining symptoms? Or is this just a normal  symptom of PMS? The breast tenderness and breast pain, did I mention the pain? The  bloating, the fatigue, the nausea and indigestion, the cramping. People would  suspect I am on my way to a BFP but I know too well that this is just the normal  swing of hormones leading me up to that dreaded day... cd1. Then we do it all  again.

    POAS addict? Umm yeh. That is the worst part of the 2ww. You  make promises to yourself every month saying I won’t POAS until this day, or I might check  on this day so I can have a glass of wine or something delicious and exotic on  the weekend. You over analyse every symptom and think I must be so I may as  well check.

    Every time I know it won’t come up positive. Then I think it  might be still too early to tell. I will test again in a couple of days, which  you know you really mean tomorrow.

    It is a vicious cycle, one that I am becoming too familiar  with for my liking.

    When will it end? How many more of my friends, family  members and work colleagues will get pregnant before me? There are not that  many of them left so surely it is my time now.

    It doesn’t seem fair sometimes. I think that there are  people much worse off in all aspects of their lives. Still doesn’t make it  easier.

    So what will this month bring? I am excited but also not  expecting much at the moment. Only time will tell.

    

    Good luck to everyone currently in their 2WW hopefully it  passes quickly!!

    




Hey there,
I cried when I read your blog as what you described is exactly how I am feeling at the moment (and probably thousands of other women). My cd1 started today...and now I am just going through all the emotions only to pick myself up and start all over again.

Thank you for sharing what many of us are going through - you gave me the sense that I am not alone or crazy when every twinge grabs my attention.

Sending positive vibes your way,

I was same for more than a year... Went through all the caring to apathy phases Then last month we were so busy we didn't get much time for trying. So I felt it was impossible... Then I got cramps and knew what was coming. 2 days later still didn't arrive, so i took a test, it was positive! Fingers crossed all goes well. And for you all too!

Don't be sad just focus on the things you can enjoy now, like red wine, coffee, a whole night of sleep etc...
