Need help with anxiety during TWW

Postby Anxious In Cincy » Fri Jan 30, 2009 2:12 am

This is my 1st IVF treatment since my husband andI have been trying for 3 years. I have had 4 IUIs and got pregnant on the 1st one but lost the baby 8 weeks later. I have never had anxiety in my entire life but since I got my transfer I find myself thinking about it all the time. What if it didn't work? The money, dissappointment and and hurt from going through all of that and I am having trouble keeping it cool. I have 5 more days before I take my blood test. I am having trouble breathing sometimes and am trying not to focus onthe negatives. I have started listening to meditation tapes which has helped a little but while I am at work it's not like I can do that. Can anyone recomend anything to calm my nerves?

Many of us are in the same situation. There are a bunch of us in 2ww in <In> section <2> thread, why don’t you join us there?

I was thinking that it’s ironic that just when a glass of wine would be most beneficial, we can’t have it…or the hot bath either, which I usually use to relax.

I am doing acupuncture, which doesn’t last 24hrs a day, but it is very calming during treatment and afterwards. I also try to take a lot of walks. And, goofy as it sounds, we light a candle every night and try to think positive.

I just realized you've probably already had your beta. Hope it turned out well for you. Sorry you didn't get a faster response to your post.

i feel for ya. i think lavender oil, which is good massaged into the temples, and rescue remedy spray are both safe and good to use in pregnancy. i suffer from anxiety anyway so i know all the tricks haha. its really worthwhile learning breathing techniques and visualising..i..im starting my treatment now with burselin and im crying non stop and not sleeping so you have my sympathy !! love and light
