Ahhhhh, yes, the Two-Week-Wait, or 2WW...

The Two-Week-Wait is the time between ovulation and when you test for pregnancy.

You’ve done everything you could up until this point.  

You tracked ovulation and you did the baby dance and now….you wait.  

You find yourself “symptom checking.”

 Ohhhh, is that an implantation cramp?

 Do I feel slight nausea?

 Did my boobs get bigger?

You also can’t help it but hop onto fertility blogs and forums to see if anyone else out there is feeling the same way.

 Does any of this sound familiar to you?

The two weeks wait feels like an eternity, it feels like two years instead of two weeks. This anguish and anxiety comes from the unknown and the fact that you’ve done everything you could up to this point, and there’s little you can do now except just waiting and waiting.

Many people will tell you don’t stress...yeah right.  That’s the worst advice ever.  It’s important for you to understand that you’re not a crazy person, you’re not over-analyzing, what you’re feeling is completely normal.  So why fight it?  Telling yourself not to think about it is going to cause more anxiety and stress.

I’ve been through thousands of 2WWs with patients and clients.

 While what’s done is done and you can’t change your egg quality at this time, there are things you can do to ease the anxiety and stay positive during this time.  

But in this episode, I want to share with you my best tips on how to boost your chances of implantation while maintaining your sanity and staying positive.
