The Two Week Wait
October 7, 2008 | By: Liz | Filed under: The Journey to Parenthood
I recently helped a client through her two-week wait. I had flash backs to my own many, many two-weeks in hell. She told me that my care package idea was the only thing keeping her together. And so we started comparing notes about what to put in the care package. She suggested that I post on my blog and we start a master list of ideas and suggestions for what to put in the care package to help us get through the dreaded two-week wait and that I put together a list of songs that people could download to their iPods (or whatever) and have a playlist for the two-week wait.
My first suggestions are:
Kneipp aromatherapy bath oils (I always bought it at Apthorp Pharmacy in NYC when I was picking up my PIO), it is kind of hard to find and kind of pricey . . . but in my opinion worth every penny!
Victoria’s Secret line of scented moisturizer’s like Pure Seduction (as if anyone is getting any of that right now!)
and for music: Hit Me With Your Best Shot by Pat Benatar (sp?), Danny’s Song by Loggins & Messina, I would Die for That by Kellie Coffee, and the Dixie Chix song (I have to get the title, I always forget it) about infertility.
and the lawyer in me must say that nothing contained in this blog shall be deemed a product endorsement, please make sure you are not allergic to any products before use and check with your physician about the safety of aromatherapy during pregnancy. lol! yeah, I had to do it. sorry.
Anyone got anything they want to add to the list?
