Which part of your cycle do you hate the most, and why? Waiting to O or the 2ww?

Those few days around when I O. Waiting for it to happen. At least in the 2ww I can analyse all my "symptoms" and nothing I do changes the outcome.

Definitely waiting to O. I am bad about analogizing our "plan". At least during the 2ww, there is nothing you can do about it but be hopeful!

Also, because my waiting to O is much longer than my 2ww.

I go back and forth... it used to be waiting to O for sure since I would have 60+ day cycles... but so far this time around (well at least 1 cycle lol) I have been lucky and I O'd on cd15.... so the time waiting to O seemed to have goen by much faster than the 2ww. The 2ww DRAGS by for me. I do get that feeling like I can't do anything but wait at that point and feel relief that I don't have to do anything, but at the same time I like to be in control and having to just wait is hard for me! I do get stressed out trying to time BD though before O... ugh I dunno know which is worse lol.

I hate the tww...at least while waiting to O I can occupy myself w/ opk's and not feel like I'm wasting them. If I peed on an hpt every day during the tww I would waste a TON of money!

I don't mind waiting to O because like PP said, you can take OPK's and watch your CM and think out the days you need to DTD and I don't freak out if I go out and have a few drinks. The 2ww is horrible for me. Time goes by so slowly and I try my hardest to wait to POAS and I analyze EVERY LITTLE THING. It wears me out!

They both are annoying, but I think the 2ww is worse. Waiting to O I can at least be proactive and BD and use OPKs...once the 2ww hits its all out of my hands.

I definitely prefer the 2ww . . . it goes by MUCH faster for me. I don't have long cycles, but I still dislike "not knowing" exactly when I'll be ovulating - and that time frame seems to crawl by. Knowing if I'm BD'ing at the correct times, etc. The 2ww is easier for me because there's nothing I can DO but sit and wait . . . it goes faster for me.

The 2ww is the worst for me. Like others above i use OPK's to distract me during the waiting to O time. However i have longer cycles so the wait to O is longer and that is annoying!

I agree that the 2ww is worse... Like others said I can occupy my time before O to really check my CM and my temps and what not.

Honestly at this very moment I hate both of them and can't wait until all this obsession is over for me! It is all just a vicious and depressing cycle that seems to never end.

Well, since this cycle is 40+ days, and my last cycle was nearly 60 days...I'd definitely say waiting to O...because it takes FOREVER!!

Now, if I can get my cycle under control and actually O on a normal schedule - well, then the 2WW might be harder...

Right now, I'm in the 2WW, but I'm pretty sure I missed the O day (at my parents house over vacation)...but, at least its only 2 weeks and then I can start again, instead of the 32 days I waited to O!!!

Honestly, it depends on when you ask me! If I am waiting to O that is the time I hate the most. If I am in the 2ww that is the time I hate the most. lol

waiting to O has been very frustrating, because I haven't had good EWCM and I don't know enough yet about my cervix to really read the signs well, so I'm paranoid that I'll O without knowing it, and miss my window of opportunity! why oh why can't our temp shoot up the day BEFORE?!? wouldn't that be nice????
