One good thing about having to use progesterone gel? It has helped to eliminate A LOT of my unhealthy obsessing during the 2WW.
I used to analyze every little twinge in my lower abdomen or my breasts. If I were tired, I'd think "Aha!" If I were crabby, it must be because of my soaring hormone levels! If I felt nauseous, it was never the slightly iffy breakfast I'd had or too much coffee; it was surely a very early pregnancy sign!
If I weren't on the progesterone gel, I might think that the mild off-and-on cramping I've had or the sensitive breasts mean something. I would be thinking "Hey! Maybe I'm pregnant!"
But I know from past experience that these are just medication side effects. I know that I have experienced these same symptoms before during treatment cycles when I definitely was NOT pregnant.
Another thing that helps to cut down on unhealthy obsessing during the 2WW is being hella busy. And yeah, I've got that one covered, too.
