Especially if you’re like me and often symptom spot during the two week wait. Above all, I know that  being patient while trying to conceive can be a task so we’ll touch on that as well. But I really wanted to make sure I share with you all my experience just in case you need a little read during the two week wait!

The Dreaded Two Week Wait

So, how do you stay patient with TTC?

SUPER EARLY Pregnancy Symptoms before BFP

It’s not an easy task, right? Who ever decided to call it a two week WAIT was really rude. There’s plenty of waiting and working of patience during trying to conceive and it doesn’t stop there sis.

The wait continues into pregnancy.

Waiting for an ultrasound.

To feel the baby move….

Finally, waiting for the actual baby to make its beautiful entry to the world.

Yea, the wait doesn’t stop at TTC. But it can be made a little easier with a few tips.

Things to Do During the Wait


The Best Fertility Prayer While Trying to Conceive

Prayer is powerful! I like to think of prayer as a time for me to talk to God like I’m talking to my best friend. You talk to your best friend and/or spouse everyday, right? 

It’s like that! 

Sometimes a good fertility prayer can help you release some of the heaviness weighing on your heart during this time.

Also, I know it’s hard and maybe you’ve heard this before but we always have to think about God’s timing above our own. Yes, motherhood has been placed in our heart but at the end of the day it’s God’s will above our own.


Think about how you can prepare yourself for motherhood. Certainly, some think the preparation begins during pregnancy but have you ever stopped to think if God is preparing you RIGHT NOW, at this moment, as you try to conceive?

I know for me, God permitted me to experience miscarriages in preparation for my true purpose. Sharing my testimony and helping other future mama’s find faith during the wait.

Mentally we have to be prepared for the wait, for cycle changes, for pregnancy, for postpartum, and for motherhood!

I know a lot of moms who struggle mentally due to motherhood being a TOUGH job.

But you can’t fail something you were created to do, Mama!

Loads can be easier when you’re able to distribute appropriately. 

Which definitely takes strength mentally and spiritually. KNOW when to ask for help Mama.

Also, prepping physically such as balancing your hormones, working out, and eating a healthy fertility based diet can assist in your TTC journey as well!


I felt like the tips should start with 3 P’s hehe.
