How do you survive the two-week wait?
Anyone trying to conceive knows the two-week wait between ovulation and pregnancy test is brutal.
The moment you wake every morning, you check your temperature and stare at the chart for the slightest sign that you could be pregnant. Has your temperature gone down, indicating your period is on its way? Is it staying high, meaning – could it really be?? – that you're pregnant?
From that instant of waking, you're like a detective on the hunt for any sign that implantation has occurred.You analyze every twinge or sensation in your body – cramps, fatigue, nausea, changes in appetite, tender or enlarged breasts, spotting.
It’s the not knowing that’s the hardest. Your mind runs amok, playing out every possible scenario – from what your due date would be if you are pregnant, to sex positions for your next ovulation cycle if you're not. You worry how you'll endure another disappointment, and maybe you even worry how you'll handle the brand-new unknown of a positive result.
There's always a what-if lurking. It feels impossible to focus on anything else.
If you’re spending hours trying to figure out whether or not ‘it’ worked this month, then I have a proposition for you.
I’m doing a workshop in July on how to get through the brutal two-week wait. It’s completely virtual and it’s LIVE, so you can ask questions and get coaching on the spot.
You can use everything you learn in our 90 minutes together throughout your two-week wait, and you’ll get the video to watch if you can’t make it live.

Conscious Conception Summit Upgrade Available Now
The workshop on How to Make Peace with your Periods & Manage Stress During the TWW is a bonus I'm putting together for anyone who attended the live Conscious Conception Summit I participated in earlier this month. But because the two-week wait is so difficult, I wanted to open it up others who weren't able to be at the summit live. I asked Elisabeth Manning, the organizer of the summit, and she said yes!
So, the way to be part of this free live training is to click on over to this page, where you have the opportunity to purchase the Conscious Conception upgrade bundle and get access not only to my TWW workshop but to over 30 hours of treasures from masters in the fields of science, medicine, fertility, health, nutrition, wellness, and spirituality.
And if you missed the details on the Conscious Conception summit earlier, it was an amazing gathering of leading speakers like Bernie Siegel, Bruce Lipton, Lissa Rankin and Sonia Choquette – to name just a few – as well as TOP fertility experts (like ME!), put together by my new friend Elisabeth Manning, Founder of Fertile Living and author of Secret Life of Fertility. Even though free access to the summit has gone away, the upgrade bundle brings every one of these inspiring and information-packed talks together for at-your-own-pace private home use. It is available for purchase now.
“The Conscious Conception Summit: Bridging Science, Spirit and the Art of a Fertile Life to Birth Your Divine Potential” explores the scientific and spiritual aspects of conceiving to help you discover and clear any possible hidden fertility blocks you may be holding on to.
We've had so much amazing feedback from the summit. One woman wrote me: “I just want to say THANK YOU! So much of what you said resonated so deeply with me. So many gems that helped me…Really, really beautiful and profound – thank you SO much!”
In these recordings you will discover:
▪ How and why conscious conception makes you a better parent and contributes to the creation of a “super child”
▪ The Science of Healing
▪ Powerful Meditation Practices to support you on your fertility journey.
▪ Why we must reach beyond the quality of our eggs and into the quality of our life
▪ That conception should be (and can be) aligned and effortless, not from force or struggle
▪ And so much more…
