Two Week Wait

If you have ever been on the journey of trying to conceive then you are probably familiar with the two week wait. That is the two weeks after ovulation before aunt flow is due to show up. Through our journey it has become two of the hardest most difficult weeks of my cycle. It is so hard not to overanalyze things that you “think” are going on with your body and convince yourself that you just might be pregnant. I have found it hard not to give into temptation and scour Google for hours looking at pregnancy websites. If you are not careful it can drive you mad obsessing about it.

Why is it that we drive ourselves mad like this? I often wonder if it would be been easier trying to get pregnant back in the day when they did not have the internet or any of the modern conveniences (or annoyances) that technology has provided us with. It is everywhere….from books on conception, to fertility monitors, to websites… is never ending. So it is no wonder that one does not end up obsessing about what is or is not going on with their body. It is truly hard to find a balance and find a place where you are paying attention to what is going on, but not obsess about it. Hopefully, I will be able to find it soon, because this whole waiting game is just driving me crazy!
