So it’s here; the dreaded two weeks in every treatment cycle that you have to wait out before your pregnancy blood test. Many patients describe this period as the most unpleasant of the whole cycle – even more than the at home-injections and the egg-collection procedure. It’s the helplessness – a huge question mark looming over your future, about which you can do absolutely nothing (well, you can not drink a bottle of tequila, that will probably help).

The kindest thing you can do for yourself at this time is put it out of your mind.

Easier said than done, right?

Well, we’ve come up with a practical list of fun activities you can do with your partner, instead of staring at the at-home pregnancy tests in the toiletries ailse.
