Step away from the computer!

This wouldn't be an infertility/IVF blog if there wasn't a post on the horror that is the 2ww. So here is mine, hopefully you just get the one but I can't guarantee it.

So our day 6 transfer was on Monday and today is Wednesday.. I have managed to go 2 whole days without googling anything to do with the 2ww... 2 days?!?! is that it? Man it fells like a shite load longer than that. I hate that I am so freaked out and tuned in that every single niggle and tingle makes me think that it's all over red rover.
So this afternoon I started with google. Now I know I shouldn't but it's in my personality to be in control and I hate having no control at all.

Ok, this is how bad I am, where I work I can order blood tests.. so whats to stop me going in to work on BT day after getting the clinics blood test done and doing one of my own? I mean I can get the results in 40 minutes instead of the half a day it would take through the clinic.. but do I do it or do I just be a good girl and do as I am told? Buggered if I know.

What I wanna know is how many people do home pregnancy tests during the 2ww. The real numbers, I know there are heaps who do it and don't cop to it. I have no idea if I will do one or not yet, I highly doubt if I will be able to stop myself.

I need help.


  1. I didn't do one. I was afraid that it would be negative and I would have myself all upset, only for it to really be positive. Turns out, it wasn't positive anyhow. I think next time I will do one, so that if it is negative, it will lessen the blow when the nurse calls.

  2. I did one first cycle but not the second time around. I was so devastated by the BFN on my first that I couldn't cope with the unknown of having to see no second line again the second time so I held off. Once I got my BFP over the phone the first thing I did was rush out and buy a test so I could see that second line for the first time. Makes me emotional just thinking about it. You must be in the 1WW now aren't you?

  3. Hey Lexa I have awarded you a blog award-you can see it on my latest post :)

  4. I am a control freak and had to POAS as I needed to be prepared for the phone call. I was sooo shocked when I got a positive 6dp a 5 day transfer.
    I hated the 2ww swinging from being positive one minute and thinking it had worked to utter dread convinced it hadn't a minute later.

  5. Hey Lexi, thinking of you on your last day before the BT. Head over to EBB and let us know how you are getting on... Im going INSANE, fifth time and it doesnt get any easier lol!! Malakai's Mumma
