Schrödinger’s Uterus

  1. Haha! You are right about the analogy! Truly, it sounds like you are doing the best you can with what you have at the moment. Keeping busy with nesting and the house is good — productive and fulfilling! For me, I go for a walk. I could list a whole bunch of other things that try to keep me positive and sane, but when it comes down to it, being in nature is key to remaining present and mindful. When’s the 2 weeks over for you? Hugs 💖

    1. That’s a good idea. It’s beautiful today, so maybe I will go for a walk now. Florida is so frequently gross and not lovely, so I should take advantage while I can. I still have six days, but my period is always late with the ovidrel, so more like 8 or 9.

  2. So glad you posted – I have been thinking of you loads.

    I am an IVFer so have never done the IUI but my approach on the two week wait has always been to fake it til you make it. We name our embryos, talk to them, I rub my tummy and generally just pretend I am pregnant. It’s a bit weird and like jumping the gun but for whatever time the embryos stayed with me I wanted them to feel love.

    I also think it is mega important to remind yourself that this is a different try and you have had the surgery you need so you have every right to expect a different outcome now. This time last year my second FET worked but I had a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks. I am now 6 weeks pregnant after my last round of IVF with a whole range of immunological treatment and drugs. I am terrified and I think it is natural to assume that the same will happen this time. But I keep trying to tell myself that this is a new pregnancy and a new chance. It is not the same as before. I have 10 days until our first scan and I feel like I am doing the TWW all over again!

    Defo get out in the fresh air. I rested a lot during the TWW but got out for an hour everyday to walk the dog. During that time I just daydream about the day we bring our baby home. This is my time and I love it.

    Give yourself a break about the lunch meat and being too perfect. Infertility makes you believe that you only get blessed with a baby of you are totally perfect the whole time but it really isn’t true. You are doing brilliantly to get through the day on some pretty crappy drugs. Celebrate your awesomeness and treat yourself to something really nurturing as a reward.

    Half way through my two week wait I started to go stir crazy and so my hubby and I went on a day trip to somewhere we have never been before. Just being somewhere new and exploring for a day really took my mind of it. New surroundings really help me to feel hopeful. While we were there I saw this awesome painting that I loved. It was quite cheap and I asked my husband if we could get it for the house. His reply was that if this cycle worked we could come back and get it as a celebration. A week later we were back and I cried so many happy tears as we bought it. It hangs on my landing now and reminds me that after years and years of bad days, good days are also possible.

    Finally and the thing that has saved me this time is reading blogs. I have found so many amazing courageous women who have shared their story and I have found it utterly life changing to follow their journeys and see that dreams really do come true and this doesn’t last forever. Why can’t it be you this time?

    Hang in there honey. Sending you hopeful hugs. We are all with you xxxxx
