What is the 2ww?
The 2WW (two-week wait or luteal phase) is a period of time immediately following ovulation where a woman must wait to find out if she is pregnant. The 2WW is a time of anticipation and also a time of relative uncertainty – a lot can happen in two weeks.
The ovaries of an average woman release one mature egg per month, or approximately 12 eggs per year. This means that on average, a woman has only a 20% chance of conceiving in any one cycle.
An unfertilized egg is sloughed from the ovary into the uterus about 2 weeks after it is released from the ovary. If no sperm reach and fertilize this egg within that time, there will be an increase in the levels of certain hormones which trigger menstruation – the woman’s period will start.
Conceiving can take up to 6 cycles for some women and as little as 1 month for others. It all depends on your age, lifestyle choices, health history, and other factors.
This is why it’s important to see your doctor after a year of trying and find out what might be causing you to conceive later than expected, if at all.
Why Fertility Scriptures in the Two Week Wait?
For some women, the 2WW can cause anxiety or depression – this is not normal. The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy the faith that we as women of God have.
The two-week wait is the perfect time for that to happen according to Satan. That’s why I wanted to encourage you today with these scriptures straight from the word of God.

All scriptures are New Living Translation (NLT).
What Not to Do During the Two Week Wait
- Hot Baths or Hot Tubs
- Drinking Alcohol
- Intense Workouts
This should be a given. Especially as a woman of God, we should not be participating in smoking as it causes harm to your body.
Hot Baths or Hot Tubs
Hot tubs, long soaks in the bath, saunas, and jacuzzis should be avoided because they can increase your core body temperature to levels that are too high for an unborn baby.
Limit caffeine intake (one cup a day is okay) and avoid alcohol altogether. Some medications may also cause harm to an unborn baby. Check with your doctor before taking any medication during the 2WW.
Moderate exercise has been shown to benefit fertility but in the two week wait, take it slow. As your progesterone increases your body will become more tired.
Instead of that intense cardio workout, go for a brisk walk instead.
Yes, you still have work to do during this time while you wait. The last thing you need is to stress yourself during the 2WW. There’s a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it, so don’t let Satan win by bringing you down.
Read the above fertility scriptures to be encouraged instead of stressed out!
