Why I hate the 2WW

There are so many reasons to hate the 2WW that I don't even know where to start. I hate the not knowing, the hope, the despair, all of it. I know, we all hate the 2WW. You would think that since they can create an embryo in a lab that they could create a way to test earlier. Like one of those blood sugar monitors but for HCG instead. One that detected HCG as low as 5 like the labs can do. And then we can test everyday to see if the numbers rise. Does that sound like such a difficult invention? I would buy one!!!

Today I have this "feeling", a sense, that it won't work. No reason really, no facts to back it up, just a premonition almost. I know that I can't go by feelings as with one of my IUIs I just " knew" that it had worked. I felt different. But I was wrong and it did not work. I hate feeling this way. I wish that I could be placed into a coma for the next 10 days.

Hopefully tomorrow I will have a mood swing and ride the wave of optimism!!!


  1. I am right there with you! Fingers crossed for the both of us.

  2. These will be some of the longest days of your life! Keep positive...almost there!!!

  3. 2ww does stink! I couldn't take it so got sucked in to testing every day though we are all different! Thinking of you as you wait!

  4. Praying for you time to wait! So crazy with all our technology that we have to wait!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
