Two Whole Weeks? WTF?

It seems ridiculous that we can send satellites into orbit without incident, can clone cells in a lab, and can communicate with someone around the world in real time, yet we can't figure out a way to detect pregnancy in the first few days.

I mean really, peeing on a stick the day our period is due is the best we've been able to come up with? How can there not be a hi-tech ultrasound that can pick up a clump of several millions cell? Making a woman wait TWO WEEKS to find out if she's pregnant or not is just cruel. I bet if researchers put some effort into it, they could figure out some other chemical or combination of chemicals that elevate a day after conception occurs. Can someone get on that?

And isn't getting your period really one of the worst ways to receive bad news? Nope, not pregnant, but you do get to bleed and have cramps for the next few days.


  1. I wish there was a way to find out sooner!!! It would make it so much easier! Not KU? Okay, I get almost a month to relax before I start stressing again.


  2. You don't know me, but I do understand the excruciating two week wait. To me, it is the worst part...because you just don't know! And I analyze every symptom, etc etc. I wish you nothing but good luck- and hope it is extra good luck to have the iui on st. patty's day- the best holiday ever!


  3. Add endometriosis on top of that and there's a true day from hell! It's like kicking you when you are down! Those 2 weeks are hell ugh!

  4. I agree with you 110%!!

    Happy ICLW

  5. I completely agree! The 2ww is heel and they really need to come up with a better way to find out! I hope the 2ww goes quickly for you with a BFP at the the end!!

    -great name btw ;)

    ICLW #134

  6. This is so true! Someone will make themseves very rich if they can figure out a way to get us the news quicker!

  7. Oh I totally agree!! The whole process is just completely insulting! Here's hoping this 2ww is totally successful for you!!!
