TWW, aka Two Week Wait, is the dreaded time between ovulation and possible conception where you wonder every day if you could possibly be pregnant this month. You inspect and analyse every single sign and symptom wondering if this could be a valid indication that you will finally be carrying a child.

Even though I am a medical professional and know the signs of pregnancy, I still wonder with each sign and symptom (S&S) experienced. On the other hand, I try to not read too much into each S&S as I do not want my hopes dashed when Aunt Flow comes for a visit at the end of this month.

I am exactly 7 days away from the commencement of my next menstrual cycle and I have had these S&S:
  • Spotting
  • Cramping
  • More spotting
  • Pain in my left pelvis
  • Breast tenderness - so tender that it is quite painful when my shirt and/or bra rubs against them.
  • Constant nipple sensitivity - have never experienced this before
These S&S have left me with much to contemplate. I am looking forward to knowing either way. Either I will be overjoyed with the news that we are finally pregnant, or I will be able to once again enjoy a nice glass of red wine. Only 1 week left until the verdict is in!


  1. I hope this wait goes by quickly!!!

  2. Hoping you get no wine for the next 9.5 + months...and I know how you like your wine :) Sending positive thoughts your way!

  3. Yes, Debbie, I do! Hoping that 9 month wine free time comes someday! :)
