And the waiting goes on…

Still another 11 days to go and I am driving myself crazy. Spent all weekend, googling early pregnancy symptoms and convincing myself I had some – headache (check) cramping (check) sore boobs (check) nausea (check) fatigue (check). Of course all of these symptoms are also my regular PMT signs and so I am swinging from convincing myself I am pregnant and telling myself it is PMT. If DH tells me one more time to stop thinking and just wait and see what is going to happen…..

How do you cope with the 2WW? And how do you prepare yourself for the worst if it doesn’t work out? I can’t face that possibility and yet DH keeps saying I have to prepare for it now.

    Why do PMT symptoms and early pregnancy symptoms have to be so similar!! Thinking of you and praying for your miracle while you go through this agonising wait xx

    OOoh, you have my sympathy – am only too aware of those feelings and imagine they are much worse because of the IUI, unfortuntely DH is right but I agree it is impossible!

    EVERYTHING has the same symptoms as pregnancy – the flu, a sinus infection, a stomach bug … and they always show up during the 2WW! I’m getting through it this time by making myself so busy I fall asleep utterly exhausted every day. It actually kind of works … except I still dream about it …

      It’s good to see you, too! I went on a little IF hiatus after I miscarried after the last IVF. Just needed a little time to be me (minus the IF)! It was good to be busy and to take some time to save up time and energy for our next try. But I’ve been loving getting caught up on everyone’s blogs again! I was gone too long!
