I went from being totally positive and confident about this upcoming cycle and embryo transfer to... I am just setting myself up for failure and this is going to be super hard to do over the holidays, if we are unsuccessful... then on top of that, I have duty ALL weekend! I am stuck on the ship all weekend with nothing to really do since I am in the processing of checking out and I dont even have my office anymore or anything... soooo... that leaves me nothing but time to google and stalk pregnancy.org!
Who said we didn't all obsess? LOL J/K
During my cycles I think its all I thought about before, during and after the 2WW. Its torture.
Honestly? I have never found a way NOT to obsess. Sorry. I guess I've never had that kind of control over my mind. It's tough to get your mind onto something else!
I was never able to figure out an answer to this. I felt like I couldn't think about anything else. I remember both times apologizing to DH that I kept coming back to IVF and a bfp. It was pretty bad at time. Good Luck.
We all obsess and there really is no way not to. At least I haven't ever figured it out. I swear IF only happens to ppl who are very type A and plan. We completely loose control during the IF process.
IVF #1-cancelled d/t embryos arresting before transfer (3/09)
IVF #2-BFP 9wks-7/30/09 (6/09)
IVF #3-BFN (5/10)
If you have been able to find a balance, please share with the rest of us Last year it got so bad that DH would have to ask if we could not talk about "the baby-stuff" as he called it for a week or so. I also try to put my efforts into other things - reading, knitting, church, friends and family. Good luck!!
