The Joys of the 2WW

isn't the two week wait so fun! i am just loving being in a state of limbo right now. (please note the sarcasm.) in fact, here are some of my favorite things about the 2WW:

  • over-analyzing every single feeling or twinge and dissecting it to interpret any signs of implantation
  • feeling bloated. who doesn't love a nice muffin top?!?
  • sore breasts. layered bras are so attractive.
  • the ever-popular tween break-outs. too bad this "tween" is between the hoping this cycle will work and the confirmation one way or the other
  • having a tender pelvis. that means no hanky panky any time soon.
  • not being able to take anything other than tylenol (aka anything that actually works) just in case there's a baby in there
  • feeling exhausted constantly. what's wrong with walking around like a zombie?
  • not being able to think/talk about anything other than pregnancy and babies. all intellectual conversations have gone out the window.
  • progesterone suppositories. i remember now why i switched to tampons. hello diapers!

did i miss anything?

also, i made it past the 60 followers mark over the weekend, so a huge thanks to all my readers! i feel so loved. ;)

Girl, I feel your frustration. Thank you for helping me understand I'm not the only one and I'm not crazy, even if our circumstances aren't the same. We all feel this way, don't we? It's reassuring.

Except for the suppositories - you're on your own there. ;)

Oy, i could have written this entire thing. The 2ww sucks! And, seriously, the leaking is getting old...

I'm feeling it too. My list includes a sore backside from PIO shots and since I've taken a few days off work I think I've actually found the end of the Internet, lol. Hope the time starts speeding up for us!!!

It's the worst part of the whole cycle. PS I swithced to PIO so I don't have to mess with the diapers. Those suppositories suck!

Wow! Reading this made me remember how much I dread the 2WW...I hope it goes by fast for you! Thinking of you!

All true, but you also missed. Frantically googling every possible symptom and then trying to close your browser window whilst looking nonchalant when someone comes over to your desk.

This is a great list! Just joined the TWW myself. I would add 'taking your temperature 5x/day'...I'm officially addicted, even though an afternoon temperature doesn't mean anything!

Hoping the rest passes by quickly for you...
