The two week waitWhat a mis-named blog this is. I refer to the URL. It was originally titled to take account of my post-miscarriage 2ww, one that would almost certainly result in pregnancy and would stand as a source of info "so that crazy ladies the world over can find some symptoms, some patterns and some comfort in the TTC endeavours of others."
The real purpose though, was to help me through those few short weeks when I should have been pregnant, until I became pregnant again and could rejoin the real world.
I'm still waiting.
And I've never made it to 2 weeks. Ignoring a couple of ill-advised medicated cycles, my LP has only ever been 7-10 days, a 1andabitww.
I'm here again, the 1andabitww. IUI went as planned on Saturday. No hiccups, no delays, a perfect insemination. I'm hoping to get closer to the 2 week mark this time, with the help of last Thursday's HCG shot. I want the anticipation to last as long as possible, don't think I'll be ready for the usual disappointment by Saturday. I won't be able to torture myself with HPTs for a while, as I had a good strong line this morning so reckon the HCG shot will take another 4 or 5 days to leave my system. Maybe I will find a different pattern of torture, I'm sure I can do that. Or maybe, just maybe things will be different this time, a 2ww with symptoms and patterns.....ha ha ha ha, no, sorry, just can't go there, can't even imagine it. Twas a different lass that started this blog, and she has long since left the building. The current writer is a realist, a cynic - there will be no self-indulgent symptom analysing, just a simple yes or no when the time comes.
