Keep me sane during this time
The 2 Week Wait. Turns into a 7month wait.
Please keep me sane.
I felt like I am pretty much in this state all the time. Terminally waiting, uncertain, Googling, and swinging from one emotion to another. The two week-wait is so hell inducing because every moment you are petrified that you did something wrong to make the embryo not stick all the while hopefully waiting that this time it will work. It becomes hell-inducing the more two-week waits that you endure because you become acutely aware of the emotional wreckage that could occur if the end of the two week-wait happens to not be in your favor. One minute you feel “pregnant,” whatever that feels like to you. The next it feels like your period is coming and it’s all over. Every symptom is analyzed to see whether it’s the twinge of hopes and dreams, or just progesterone. So much is riding on the end of the wait. Now if our dreams are dashed we will have a seven month wait till he returns from deployment.
I needed this outlet to connect with others and keep me sane.
Thank you 💓
