Choosing not to take a Pregnancy test during the 2ww

3 years ago

I Katie, pledge not to take a home pregnancy test before the 2ww week wait is up.  Sounds funny right?!  So many woman undergoing IVF take multiple pregnancy tests before getting the actual beta numbers. I am guilty myself during my previous rounds.

Why I am choosing not to take a pregnancy test this round:
  • If it's negotive I will just tell myself it implanted late. 
  • Why try to gain control over something I have absolutely no control over  
  • It's not going anywhere. 
  • Good things come to thoughs who wait. 
  • I have self control
  • Waist of money. 
  • It will just make me obsess about it. 
  • It could make me stress.  Stress is not good 
  • I did it both my previous rounds and got positives.  The second in particular was a chemical.  Low beta but still tested positive.    
I have learned a lot from IVF but real patience is the best thing!
