Ep 192: How to Survive (and Thrive) in the Two-Week Wait

So you’ve completed your fertility treatment, and now it’s time to pack your patience for the “two-week wait.” Join Dr. Carrie Bedient from The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, Dr. Abby Eblen from Nashville Fertility Center and Dr. Susan Hudson from Texas Fertility Center as they explain why the two-week wait is the appropriate amount of time to let pass before taking a pregnancy test. They also explain why IUI and IVF patients shouldn’t put stock in the presence (or absence) of stereotypical “early pregnancy signs” during this waiting period. And finally, they emphasize the need for self-compassion with suggested methods for how best to “treat yo’ self” to boost your physical and mental health.
