TWO WEEK WAIT
WHAT DOES TWW MEAN?
The TWW is the last stage that we can take in order to make your dream come true. It is the period between the moment of the transfer of the embryos and the pregnancy test.
At Embriogyn, we know that the days of waiting can be complicated and that they can seem to have no end. That is why we share with you some of the councils that can help you. Being physically active at a low intensity, walking around in natural environments or following a balanced diet are good options to generate positive emotions, to leave the business and the uncertainty in a second and try to accept feelings and thoughts without focusing on the result we expect.
On the day of the embryo transfer, we recommend that you get some rest. It is a day to be calm and relaxed at home. From the next day on, you will be able to resume your normal life without high intensity physical effort.
TIPS AND GUIDELINES TO HELP YOU IN THE BETA-WAITING
TO LIVE THESE DAYS IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY
Communicate: These days it is vital to increase communication with your partner, family or friends with whom you have decided to share this experience. It is time to share concerns and feelings as you feel it is useful to feel accompanied and reduce the emotional burden. In order not to saturate you, it is also important to give a limited time to talk about this topic.
Now more than ever it is important to take care of your diet. A balanced and healthy diet that includes all the nutrients can help to successfully achieve our goal as well as a greater sense of tranquility, well-being and joy. Reduce the number of exciting drinks and opt for antioxidant and healthy foods and drinks.
INCREASE SOCIAL CONTACTS
It’s time to increase social contacts: Keeping a positive attitude and keeping your mind busy will make these days until the pregnancy test go by faster and easier. The positive energy generated by being in touch with our loved ones will be very beneficial for our emotional balance at this time, empowering your more social “self”!
NOT TO BLAME
During these days it is normal to have moments of very diverse emotions. Moments of euphoria, moments of melancholy, moments of hope, moments of frustration. They are part of human nature and are a natural part of the process. Faced with this situation we have to learn not to blame ourselves, to analyze them, to understand each other and to live with these situations.
SPORT OUR GREAT ALLIANCE
Sport, our great ally. Whether you are used to exercising or not, it is a good time to establish low intensity activity routines. Contact with nature, fresh air, listening to your body, are factors capable of generating positivism and confidence in yourself and in the situation you are facing.
BIOLOGY WILL TAKE ITS COURSE
We don’t want to lie to you. During these days it will be inevitable to think about the result of the process, but we have to try not to anticipate the results, to live in the present and not in the future. Biology will take its course, we just have to provide you with the best possible physical and mental conditions. You have already done everything you had to do for this to work out, now it is no longer up to you directly.
Search for moments of relaxation. We can make use of very simple and useful techniques to find the calm and serenity that we so much need. Breathing with the diaphragm, meditation, guided imagination, yoga, mindfulness or any other activity with which we feel comfortable and familiar.
