8 days into the two week wait! Not doing very well.

Hi Jenna and Welcome!

I understand where you're coming from. Some days are fine, and then you have your days when everyone and everything seems to be just too much to handle. At least you were able to leave work a little early to get away from it all...that's a definite plus!

Jemma (35) and DH, (37). Married October 13, 2007 and TTCing since April 2008. Dealing with PCOS, swollen tubes, and also MFI. Committing myself to getting healthy and losing weight in preparation for IVF later in 2012.

Oh I was TERRIBLE during the 2ww. No patience and over analyzing. I agree with Jemma and allow yourself the bad days. I know that if I bottled it up when it did come out it was like a crazy explosion. One day going home early I think is very acceptable.

I found some of the best ways to distract myself was to come on here. The ladies here are the only ones who I knew completely understood the insanity that IF and the 2ww can give.
Much luck and pixie dust that this is the successful wait!
