Waiting on You

So now that I survived (barely) the weekend of baby making (and yes I did survive! I am still kind of stuck on the couch with this neck shoulder thing going on, though) I have been planning on how I was going to survive the two week wait.

I dread the two week wait... I dread it and I want it at the same time. Because the two week wait means that I have something to hope for... it means there is a chance that in a few long ass short weeks all my dreams may come true. This two week wait is even more... everything, because I feel like our chances are so high this month.

One of the things that I do love so much about this time is dreaming about the possibilities with my husband. Out of nowhere one of us will start spouting off possible names and vetoing each other and laughing about what we hope so badly is soon to come! That's the fun part.

The other parts... not so much.

Originally, my plan was to just pretend that I wasn't in the two week wait. Hmmmm. I wonder how that will go for me.

My other plan is to cook and bake and try a bunch of new recipes I've been planning on trying for awhile. And that is a plan I can get behind.

A few weeks ago I made a joke about baking my way through Infertility... end result... huge ass. And the more I thought about it, I thought why not? Why not add a little something else to this little 'ol blog and keep myself busy at the same time? So that is what I will do.

Last year my husband got me a cookie jar for Valentine's Day.

This cookie jar is more than just a cookie jar. It's personalized and on it all our hopes and dreams are clearly displayed. One of my greatest fears is that this special gift will always be a reminder of what my body cannot achieve.

But for the next two weeks I am going to be filling this jar up with sweet treats and goodies just like I hope my belly is filling with our dreams for the future.

  1. Hiya, thanks for visiting my blog and for your advice!!
    I hope the TWW flies by and at the end of it, you'll be staring at two beautiful pink lines. I'll be back to check on you!! Oh and do share your baking recipes - i love baking :)

  2. that is such a sweet idea. Good luck with the baking and keeping calm for the next two weeks!

  3. I like the idea of baking your way through the 2ww. If you do this, you will have to post pictures or share some of your recipes. I hope it passes quickly.

  4. The cookie jar is so sweet. Keeping it filled with yummy cookies is a great way to distract yourself. Here's hoping there's a BFP waiting for you in 2 weeks.

  5. This 2 week wait is going to be over before you know it, and I just know it's going to be the one!!
