I hate the 2ww.

Hate it hate it hate it.

I am only 5 days into it, and have 9 days to go (I love my little ticker at the top of my page - love it love it love it).

I had a busy, busy weekend, but no plans for this week at all. I'm worried it will go by slowly. I tend to break up long waits into manageable chunks of time. The first chunk was getting through the weekend, which was easy.

Now I have to get through to Friday, which is hard enough under normal circumstances (maybe I'll just try to be extra-productive this week, hahahaha). Then I have to get through next weekend, which should be a bit easier (but getting closer to D-Day, which makes it hard). And then I have two weekdays which will probably be REALLY hard. November 9 and 10, I've got to figure out a way to make them go quickly.

Only 9 days. 5 days, then 2 days, then 2 days. No problem. Ha. Maybe I'll try to break the 5 days down into some sort of milestone.

Regarding IUI #4 - insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. At least I'm not really expecting a different result, so I guess I'm not technically insane. Right?


  1. Never would you be insane! I've got all things that can be crossed, crossed for you! It's a bit uncomfortable, but if it helps, I'll do it! ;o)

    Sending you lots of good JUJU, hon!

  3. For what it's worth, I don't think you're insane. And like you, I never really think that an IUI will be successful--the odds are against it--though I sometimes *hope* that it will be.

    Fingers crossed for you! Try to stay not only busy but mentally occupied. . .

  4. Thanks for the reminder - I'm not insane either. :) Fingers, toes and the like crossed for you, as usual. If you find a good way to keep distracted, let me know!

  5. Hope: to cherish a desire with anticipation. (Merriam-Webster) I love this definition because this is exactly what we IFers do. We have a desire that we think about everyday with anticipation. We cherish this desire as we blog, daydream, and obsess about the outcome. I think crazy is living without ever wanting something this bad! :)

  6. I hope the next 9 days fly by a little quicker for you! I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for you :).

  7. Hope the next 9 days fly by and that you'll have a different and exciting result at the end. Hugs to you.

  8. Not insane in the least. Hoping the next 9 days flies by and your BFP is right around the corner!

  9. lolol that same quote has totally haunted me before. What a great way to look at it! I just hope your 2WW flies by and you get your BFP just in time for Christmas! We're a similar boat - if we mess up our timing, we're going to have to wait 'til Jan for our next attempt, too.

  10. i hate the countdown too. oh i really hope this is it for you!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
