2ww Writers Block

I've been struggling to write any posts during this 2ww. I think its because I'm trying to detach myself from this process even though I know if I have a negative outcome, it will still hurt. During the 2ww, I'm pretty much a mess. Internally, I'm up and down emotionally. Externally, I may seem stoic or pensive or happy.  Sometimes a twinge here or there gives me a little glimmer of hope that maybe, just maybe, this could finally be our time, but deep down, I really don't think this worked. I still have a few days to wait until my blood test, so I will dutifully take my progesterone, like a good little IVF patient, and hope that I'm one of those lucky women who get pregnant w/o really feeling anything...  In my heart of hearts I feel that we'll be thawing those 2 little frosties for one last attempt with my genetics....

For now, my quietness is simply a sign that I'm trying to focus on anything but infertility for the next few days, even though my mind can think of nothing else...

  1. The 2WW is SO hard--don't be too hard on yourself. Crossing my fingers for you! (And you're not out until it's over--symptoms don't mean anything.)

  2. I have been thinking of you. Whatever it takes to get you through, we've got your back. I didn't feel a thing when I was briefly knocked up except for extreme thirst, don't give up hope. I really, really hope this is it for you. Sending you good thoughts and love!

  3. (((hugs))) Sending tons of good vibes your way. I completely understand the 2ww silence - there is so much action and activity and what-ifs building up to it and then suddenly, there's not a whole lot to do but sit tight. I really hope you will have good news in the next few days!

  5. It's so hard during the two week wait. I had zippy symptoms when I was pregnant with my son and have nothing now.

    I'm WAAY to positive this two week wait. I'm elated and so hopeful. I should know better. I've been through this before. I just feel like we have a decent shot this time.

  6. I totally hear ya! It is SO SO hard not to read into what we are or aren't feeling. I'll just remind you that I was 99% sure that this cycle didn't work for me (none of my usual symptoms were present) and I was totally wrong, and I am totally someone that used to pride myself on "knowing my body." Pffft. how wrong I was! Point is, you just never know. I am rooting for you like crazy!!!

  13. I do the same thing. I barely posted during my last TWW because I just couldn't bring myself to delve into the land of infertility blogging. I don't know what it is. It has to be some kind of defense mechanism.

    I am praying for you. So very hard. I would love nothing more than to hear you got a BFP. Even more than I would love to get my own BFP.

    I've got my fingers and toes crossed. I'll braid my hair too. And I'll cross all of my dogs toes if it will help.

    *HUGE hugs*
