Hope!

It might be the many hormones that I am supossiting (is that a word? well now it is!) ...or maybe it's just the mood I'm in but (are you sitting down?) I actually like the two week wait! GASP! I know ...I know!!! These two weeks are magical.....everything means something and it's all baby related. Twinges in the stomach (might be gas) ..definitely the baby!!! Sore boobs (could be because my period is coming)...definitely the baby!!! Nausea over everything and heightened sense of smell (maybe my house smells funny)....NOPE ..definitely the baby!!!! The two week wait is like the Christmas season.....everyone's jolly (and it's OK if you gain ten pounds).

This is also the time where I LOVE to be around other mom's .....I finally feel like I am part of the club. Well, I am not sure if I am pregnant but I could be so I totally fit in now!!! I was at a party on Friday night surrounded by mommies and I was absorbing all of the information......potty training....Halloween customs and costumes......dealing with the new baby.....I was making mental notes of everything!!! I could have listened to it forever.....

Now I know just a couple of days ago I was saying that I wasn't allowing myself to think about it....but seriously who was I kidding? I am 8 days past the IUI's and its all I can think about. And of course I realize that in just seven days, when Nurse BFF calls with the news, my whole world could fall apart....those magical pains go back to being just pains and I can be once again left on the outside of the mommy club (I mean seriously...how long does someone have to pound on the door before you let me in?!?!?). But on the other hand, this could be it!!

See what I mean? The two week wait is a torturous and magical time! It's a time of hope ....

I absolutely agree! The last two weeks, while nerve-racking, were so much fun! The hubs and I talked about baby names, nursery themes, parenting styles...it was great! It didn't end good but it was fun while it lasted...and now I get to do it all over again in two weeks. LOL! Hoping you're announcing your BFP in the next week!

That is so great that you enjoy the 2ww. I had so much trouble wondering what if that I drove myself crazy. Not looking forward to another one. I hope you get a bfp at the end.

You can be a part of the club regardless! I am now a reader and can't wait to find out if you are preggers!

"torturous and magical time" - I like that! Thanks for the alternative take on the 2WW.
