Fly Away Time

First of all, I just have to say thank you to all of you who have been supporting me. I am overwhelmed by the positive comments and support. I really do feel as though all of us Iffers are a community that I am slowly working my way into. I am feeling the love! :)

A short quiz today:

Question #1 -
What do all of these things have in common?
- the weekends
- watching a great movie
- cheering on my favorite team during the last few minutes of a championship game
- taking walks with my dogs
- reading a good book
- vacations
- eating an ice cream cone
- the lunch hour

Answer: You guessed it....they are all circumstances where TIME FLIES!

Question #2 -
What do these things have in common?
- the two week wait
- every day with IF

Answer: You got it right again...they are all things where time stands still.

Right now, I am only 4 days into the 2 week wait. Although it kind of is a 24 month wait. This cycle actually marks 2 years exactly since we first started trying to conceive. I have a huge fear of going past 2 years. It's like this milestone that just seemed impossible up to this point. It was off my radar for a very long time. These past few cycles have brought this new found fear out in me - what if this time it doesn't work and we go past two years? I keep trying to tell myself that we have been fighters up to this point in our journey and we will continue to do so. 2 years should not scare me...but that little devil sitting on my right shoulder keeps whispering doubts into my ear. I tried flicking him off but he won't go away.

I think for now I will just take this one day at a time. 2 weeks can't go by that slowly, can it? Who am I kidding! We all know it always does!

Just out of curiosity, what do all of you do to pass the time and make it go faster during your 2 week waits?


  1. 2ww's suck!! I hope yours speeds up. Wish I had a tip for you - I used to obsess over every single minute!

  2. I don't have much of an answer for speeding up the 2ww, its been a while for me. I get the fear of a milestone though, and it is rough. I was looking over your history and was wondering if you guys have contmplated IVF, I bet you have blogged about this before but I am a new reader, sorry. You still have options. I know you are not giving up and I know it is difficult but some women try for far longer and guess what, it can happen! I hope that is not the case for you and that you get a BFP and never make it to that milestone. Good luck!!!
