    yikes!!!! definately ovulated this weekend.. had plenty of pelvic pain just like last time both sides (last time i released 2 eggs so maybe this is a sign of two eggs?? would desperately love twins after losing twins in mc last time)...and bd'd this weekend..

    1-2 dpo now and the 2ww is here....looking for suggestions for healthy ways to distract myself over the 2ww.. so if you have any ideas or know of ways that get you through.. please put them in this thread.......i (and others in the 2ww) need all the support we can get to keep sane while waiting...!!!!

    Hey doc, I too am 2 dpo.

    I am trying to take my mind off it by trying to lose a few lbs before I go wedding dress shopping in a couple of weeks but I am not too hopeful of it working.

    Here is hoping this 2ww is a fruitful one for us all..

    I've been reading books, watching favourite films, working, painting, visiting friends and family, cleaning, taken up archery. Keep busy is the main thing and don't spend all day on here obsessing about every twinge ;)

    Its not for everyone but i have taken up crochet and knitting. It keeps my hands busy and my brain so i dont think too much about things and dont start picking at food either its a win win situation. My sister is 7 months pregnant so i have been making things for my new niece. I have been making other stuff as well I am half way through crocheting a bikini at the moment.
