So this post is totally premature, but a lovely fellow blogger, The Great Pudding Club Hunt, got me thinking about my next FET 2 week wait with her recent post.
By my calculations, if all goes as planned, this 2WW is approximately 91 days, or 3 months from now. Seems like an eternity (like I said premature), but really Im guessing, or should I say *hoping*, it will fly by.
That being said, I want to have a list of things to keep myself busy during my bedrest (the following 48 hours after the transfer) and the remaining 2WW. I have done a few of these things on waits before, but others I have not.
Adult color-I have SO many coloring books, so theres definetly no lack of materials here. Hubby & I did some coloring the other day together for the first time which was really nice! I usually do it independently.
Blog about my symptoms-I want to keep track of how I feel each day past transfer (dpt). Ill probably blog daily during this time Im guessing.
See my therapist-just sounds like a smart idea. Prepare for all the possible outcomes. A negative beta (something we havent had from an IVF cycle yet), a positive beta (high or low), I could go on and on here, which just makes me realize as I type that this visit is a must during the 2WW.
Go to the beach-my aunt has a condo right on the ocean and I would like to go lay on the beach, and listen to the waves peacefully for a few days.
Barnes & Nobles trip– A few style magazines & a good book (other than our devotional and bible we read) are a must. Im a reader. Last 2WW, I read all the Gillian Flynn books and kept myself engaged. Please give me some recommendations on must read books!
Design a dream nursery??? Okay, yes I know this might seem crazy to some, but maybe, just maybe? It would be fun to dream a little! I deleted my pinterest board after my last loss that had years and years worth of ideas. Only time will tell how I am feeling about doing this then.
Movies-mostly Disney reruns, maybe a few new flicks too! Hopefully some good new releases will be on Redbox around this time (1st week of April).
Circle + Bloom CD-Ill surely be listening to this audio CD! I bought it months and months ago for self relaxation during a cycle. Cant wait to finally pop it in.
Acupuncture-I have not done this post-transfer ever, but I might this time around. I usually only do it up until transfer day, however my RE and other bloggers have had nothing but positive things to say about continuing it! Keep that blood flowing, right?
Light yoga/Walking the dogs-pretty self explanatory! If Im feeling okay, my plan would be to do some very, very light physical activity. If Im too anxiety driven, I wont. Same applies during an entire pregnancy.
Date night-we do this anyways, but maybe we will do it a few more times during the wait to make time pass a little quicker.
Girls day/night-I want to do dinner with the girls and chat, chat, chat. Im sure hubby will be tired of hearing all my bologna at some point lol.
And of course, last but not least, take a few days off work to lounge around and be as stress free as possible, doing a whole lot of nothing. A.k.a. Napping & eating!
Any other ideas for me ladies?
