After two years of trying to conceive unsuccessfully I reckon I am getting quite good at this two week wait malarky. Admittedly, I’m a bit rusty at it. So in light of my previous post where I declared my new year’s resolution: I will embrace time, I decided to start thinking about my next two week wait for IVF cycle 2. Now, I know that I will not be doing anything ‘extreme’ or ‘partying like it’s 1999’….but that doesn’t mean I can’t plan for some fun! right??!
Evening Fun Activities (i.e. post work)
Self-Pampering – Mud mask, jacuzzi bubbles bath, trashy magazine, a bar of chocolate (something fancy like) cosy pyjamas and early to bed.
New food (2 nights) – Cook or bake something outrageously random for dinner that requires some new cooking skill! Like working with pastry or something equally different. Glug it down with a random new TV programme from Netflix or Amazon Prime. Sadly no alcohol to glug.
Fun with friends – hang out with friends, either invite them over for take-away (take-out) dinner or try somewhere new together.
Fun with family – I can’t really do this well, but I will spend some time writing a couple of letters to my family back in the UK.
Meet some new people – go to one of my local social and sports club nights, make an effort to be sociable!!!
Crafty and creative (2 nights) – do some knitting (including teach myself a new stitch and practice it), start/continue my new painting (it’s a secret what I am planning to paint!!!)
Date night with hubby – Trip to cinema or rent a DVD with lots and lots of popcorn and some BIG SNUGGLES.
Blog focus night – discover some new blogs and write a new blog post (perhaps from my collection of ideas I have left over from NaBloPoMo 15).
Weekend Fun Activities
Well there is potentially only one weekend I will need to keep busy for!
Road trip to Charlotte, North Carolina (to include going to a Basketball game, a walking tour, perhaps a nice meal out and a trip to Lemur Land on way back!!!!). I am pretty excited about this road trip. My Birthday present was tickets to see the Charlotte Hornets play the Washington Wanderers. I don’t support any particular team, I just really wanted to see basketball game!!! It was perfectly planned by Chris.
I looked back at all my previous blog posts that were tagged with the 2 week wait (2WW)…I think the key for me is to keep myself busy, even if it means I am just ‘planning’ to relax and pamper 🙂
Ohhhh I should also mention that I have ZERO home pregnancy tests in the house! I used them all up last time and did not replace them. So no sneaky testing will be happening this time around!!!
Do you have any other tips for the 2WW?
