For my monthly article over at Pregnancy After Loss Support (PALS) I reflected on the mind games and anxiety that come along with the dreaded two week wait while trying to conceive.
“I forgot about this part. The crazy lady part. After my last loss, I waited six months to try again. Six months filled with angst, grief, anxiety and insomnia. But no “planning for pregnancy psychosis.” I honestly blocked out how emotionally exhausting trying to conceive is. But not for long. Crazy came back with a vengeance and grabbed ahold of my sanity for those two weeks. The two week wait ended with a trash can full of negative tests and a perfectly on time cycle.”
