Are you about to go through the dreaded two-week wait (TWW)? Are you feeling stressed about how on earth you are going to get to the other side?
It’s natural to be anxious and scared because you’ve been through so much to get to this point. But you are not alone. Wouldn’t it be helpful and supportive to read true-life stories from those who have survived this dreaded period of time? Whether you have done IVF or another fertility treatment, the days until you can trust the pregnancy test result are scary, and exciting, at the same time. It doesn’t matter if this is your first, or you’re an expert (if there’s such a thing!), at the TWW, wondering whether your embryo has snuggled in and is sticking around has to be one of the hardest times on the journey to becoming a parent. In This is the Two Week Wait, you’ll read:
- Whether it’s a good idea to test early, or not
- That we all analyse ever twinge, cramp and ‘feeling’
- That it’s normal for your emotions to range from incredible hope to utter desperation, in a matter of minutes and
- Some top tips for managing your two-week wait with beauty and calmness.
This is the Two Week Wait has also been written for those who have never struggled to get pregnant, so haven’t had to pee on a ovulation stick or invite a team of medical staff into ‘the bedroom’, and have never dreaded the arrival of ‘aunt flo’ (or menstrual period). If you know of someone who is about to or is going through fertility treatment, like IVF or IUI, and aren’t sure how to support them, This is the Two Week Wait is the perfect book for you, to help you understand and be supportive, and to steer clear of inadvertently saying something insensitive.
This is the Two Week Wait has also been written for patient facing staff who have never had to undergo fertility treatment themselves, for practitioners who are supporting infertile men and women, and for health care professionals who are caring for men and women who are pregnant after fertility treatment.
