Blah, blah, blah...

Nothing really important to say especially on the infertility front.

I am officially in the 2ww (almost 1ww now) and I am trying not to obsess about whether this cycle is successful or not. I've been reading a really good book on infertility that has brought a lot of things into prospective for me. I am going to post about it when I am finished with the title and my thoughts after reading it. I'm a little over half way finished with it now.

My current goal is trying to live in the "now" rather than the future. Lately, anytime thoughts of tomorrow, the next day, or next week, etc. creep into my mind, I stop and try to be mindful of my current "now." It has really helped me feel better emotionally, and I can tell ya, my husband has appreciated that. Now, if only I can have this same mindful mindset if/when AF arrives next week.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Hi there! I came across your blog through another and just thought I'd read up on you and say hello.

I hope that you continue with feeling better and that your 2ww just absolutely flies by!

I'm praying for you and this cycle. Living in the now is something I keep thinking about but then my mind drifts off into the future again. I need to get back to my yoga, it seemed easier then. Can't wait to hear about the book!

Oh Elaine, I am saying a prayer right now that this is the month for you! Good for you in being content with the things of today. It's hard to do!

BTW, I sent you an email a few weeks ago???? Did you get it?

Hey Elaine! I'll be praying that you continue to be able to live in the 'now'. I know how easily one's thoughts can jump ahead to the future. God bless!
