I get so caught up in TTC that my life feels like it is flying past me. For an example, I am on hold until I start trying again in July, so all I ever think about is how I just want the day to be over with, and "oh my gosh 1 more week until AF." I am looking forward to July so all I ever think about is how I want the days to be over with so I can be closer to my next AF, and once that comes and goes It starts all over again. I think it's like that with people whose husbands are still at home too. When you don't conceive the first cycle you just want AF to hurry up and come, so you can ovulate and try again. I know it is only affecting me, because I don't completely shut down, or isolate myself. I just want the days to be over with, and I really need to start enjoying my life because I am only 18. I'm still so young. It's not like I'm hitting 40 and I'm meeting a deadline, but I'm so obsessed with wanting to be a mommy because I am financially stable and I have everything laid out for me already. I just need to take a step back, and hit play, because I have been on fast forward for too long. I need to embrace this TTC break.. Does anyone else experience this problem?
Yes. I am 29 and I have 2 kids and 3 losses. I am obsessed. I wish for the days to fly by, for O time to get here, for the 2ww, and for AF to get over and done with so we can try again if it didn't work. The waiting after the miscarriages sucked the most..the not knowing what was going on, when the first AF would be. I should be having a baby this month, or next month, or in September...I thought I was going to be pregnant a year ago. I'm not pregnant and I don't have another baby. It sucks. It's horrible that I wish the time to fly by. What makes it worse is my almost 3-year-old keeps telling us that he wants more babies and that he wants a brother. I dunno where I am going, but yes... I am right there with you. I think many of us are like this. Sometimes when I have an exceptionally busy week I find myself not thinking about it as much and am somewhat relieved that it helped the time pass by more quickly. Ugh.
Try to remember that hitting fast forward isn't going to make it come any quicker. Enjoy the time you have now and learn things about your body. Temp, chart and don't become obsessed with it because you can't try at this moment so it's just to help you know your body for when you can try
Yeah I am definitely getting to know my cycles, but I have been blessed so far with regular cycles. AF is 5 days long and I O 6 days after each period. It's like clock work. My cycles have never been so precise. I was pretty irregular previous to getting pregnant, and now I am on a 26 day cycle. I am loving it! I definitely gave myself a reality check last night, so I am going to start taking enjoying the days. I owe it to myself to relax, you do too JulieMc! I am leaving town on Friday to visit some old friends, and family, I think that is just what I need!
ok so what you said is me to a t. i didnt stop for 9 months thinking about ttc it was crazy in the past week iv just let it go whatever happens happens i missed out on to much with audie trying to have another baby and i wont let that happen anymore.
