Home Body

I've noticed something interesting recently.   I'm not certain it is related to TTC, but I think it might be.  I realize that I don't feel like going out very much right now.  I've been seeing many of my friends to go on walks or do yoga or grab a meal, but on Friday or Saturday night, I haven't been going out of my way to make plans to get out of the house.  Granted, my husband and I tend to be home bodies in general - we much prefer cooking a nice meal at home and playing board games or watching a movie.  We rarely go out to bars, we NEVER go clubbing, and we are usually in bed by midnight at the latest.  So, it's not so terribly strange that we've been staying home more these days.  However, I can't help but wonder if it has something to do with the 2WW.  I can't drink and it's getting a little tough to constantly come up with excuses about why I don't feel like drinking.  I've been exhausted, but as you know from my previous post, I've had some pretty stressful and all consuming events going on.  Plus, I am keeping this whole infertility and TTC thing a secret from most of my friends.  It makes me feel a little dishonest and awkward having to keep this giant thing in my life under wraps. 

Do any of you find that you don't get out much during the 2WW?


  1. I think the whole struggle with infertility has made me a less social person. It's awful to say, but I have trouble finding things to talk about with friends now. TTC and the struggles we are going through is the #1 thing on my mind right now. And like you said, it's easier to stay home than come up with excuses for why I'm not drinking very much (or at all).

  2. I totally agree. It's hard to not think about it since it plays such an important part of our lives right now but it's not openly discussed.

  3. I feel the same way. Not that I need to drink to have fun (well...maybe sometimes haha), but when I'm the only one not drinking (and getting the third degree because of it) I would rather just skip it.

    It can feel sometimes as though the only thing we are doing right now is making a baby, so everything else just gets put on hold, but we've been trying out some new things lately to get us out of the house. We took a cooking class a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it :)

    How did your test go?!
