When you are actively trying to conceive, things that we do can seem a bit strange to those who have either not been pregnant or have not actively tried to get pregnant before. Sometimes I do envy those who get ‘surprise’ pregnant because as a perfectionist, over-achiever and a control freak, trying to conceive is not always as stress-free as I would like it to be.I am in my 3rd month of actively trying to conceive and while I know it’s not a long time to be trying at all (promise, I am not really freaking out), but I would like to be pregnant like yesterday.
I have all the things set in place that I need to before we try, I am so ready to be pregnant and I am currently in my 1 week wait. Many of us ‘trying-to-conceiver’s” talk about the 2 week wait (2WW) and 1 week wait (1WW) which is the time between ovulation and when we can test — aka the luteal phase. It’s the time were we do more of the ‘weird’ things as we stress, anticipate and hope to be pregnant. Some of us develop weird habits and today I confess my weird habits — but I bet I am not alone in the weirdness… if I am, well… enjoy!
