Two Week Wait

For any of you who have ever tried to get pregnant, you probably know what the two week wait is. For those of you who don't, let me explain. The two week wait describes the time between ovulation and your period showing up, or not showing up. Basically, it's the longest two weeks ever waiting to find out if you are pregnant.

I used to think that this two weeks was long when we first started trying but I have since realized that it is much worse when you are seeking out fertility treatments. I feel like since we did an IUI this cycle, there is more pressure to be pregnant and therefore the time since has dragged out even more than usual.

It's only been 9 days since our IUI but it feels more like 9 months. I have been trying really hard to fill the days and find distractions but it hasn't worked that well. I'm a bit of an emotional mess and can't seem to decide how I feel.

All this to say, the reason for my absence on the blog is because I'm much to distracted to actually focus on typing anything. Or doing anything other than watch TV and stare at the clock. Sigh.


  1. while it seems you've got tons of fun stuff (knitting socks! although that may grow to be tedious... they look hard!) to keep busy, I'm sure it still feels like it's just seconds ticking away each minute...
    I hope the next few days pass quickly and those cheap pregnancy tests provide the two long-awaited for lines!
