2WW: The Longest 14 Days of an Infertile!

You know you are in the 2ww (2 week waiting period) when...

  1. You start eating for 2, just in case :)
  2. You swear you feel nauseated and inexplicably tired (PSS)*
  3. You fight the urge to create your baby registry at Babies R US.
  4. You tell yourself those aren't AF cramps, you just have to poop.
  5. You repeat the mantra: If you don't buy tampons, She (AF) won't come. (Your husband will appreciate the homage to the movie "Field of Dreams" If you build it, they will come.)
  6. You don't have intercourse on Days 10-16 because..."Really, what's the point? And you need the rest anyway."
  7. You change the names of your future children at least 500 times only to only to settle on your original selections.
  8. You suddenly notice that EVERY other woman in the world is pregnant.
  9. You know that each day that passes is one day closer to either another EB (emotional breakdown) or to a "Oh crap, how am I going to pay for college?"
  10. You are actually counting down the days until you can wake up and pee on a stick! Ahh what an exciting life we infertiles live.

*Psycho-symptom-atic Syndrome (PSS) - a psychosomatic condition afflicting women during the two-week waiting period; marked by a tendency to incorrectly attribute every bodily twinge and twitch to the early stages of pregnancy.
