So beginning of last month i've been TTC and I know for a fact most of everything I feel is all in my head. like at work I pay more attention on seeing if I feel any different about my body, just pretty much looking for pregnancy symptoms and when I get myself believing I am pregnant I go home to take a pregnancy test and comes back negative and gets my hopes all up. I know you should not stress out about it but how can you not? I am just overly excited about TTC and I know all people can say is just have fun trying and blah blah blah! How can I get my mind off of trying to tell myself im pregnant when I am not. its all I think about at the office or home. all I get is "try not to stress out about it." yeahI know that and its easier said that done.

Not trying to judge, but just want to make sure I understand you clearly. Did you start TTC as of the beginning of January, or just recently?



Even if say, you had sex on January 1, and some how ovulated and the timing went perfect, you probably wouldn't be pregnant enough to see a positive pregnancy test.



So calm down, wait until your late, and test then. No sense in worrying or getting your hopes up so soon! Stress delays TTC and AF too! I know its hard, I was there for 4 years, and JUST now got my BFP!



Good luck hun!

Well... I was there too. After enough negative pregnancy tests, I honestly just kinda... stopped getting my hopes up. It wasn't until I was super cynical about being pregnant that I actually got my BFP lol. DH swore I was pregnant, and I kept telling him to shut up... turns out he was right!

it just seems the more I have to wait ttc I am going to rip my hair. I just want a child by the end of this year. if not I am probably going to end up in rehab or something, lol. its hard for me cause I am clearly the most impatient person. I try not to stress about it but it just aggravates the hell outa me.

it seems its easier for ladies who dont even try to get pregnant end up pregnant and ladies who want a baby takes them forever, and I think to myself what the hell is up with that?

This is my first month ttc and Im so excited to test but Im waiting. I ovulated on Jan 25th and Im 8 dpo. I already have a 2 pack of hpt but Im waiting. I know its hard trust me. I had my iud removed on January 13th and thought Id wait until march to ttc. Yeah I changed my mind 2 days later and decided to give it a gothis month just 12 days later after my iud removal. Every morning I wake up take my temp and re-read the hpt instructions before deciding to put the test back in the closet because its just to early. I keep telling myself I test tomorrow ....maybe, but I tell myself the same thing every morning. Seems to work for me.
