Telling myself that the "stress" is just going to put unnecessary strain on me which could make the whole thing take even longer is the only true way to get myself to really mellow out.

Yoga and an evening glass of wine helps too.

I try to keep my mind occupied and have other things to look forward to day to day or week to week. Date nights w/DH, outings with friends, even projects I've been wanting to get done.

I like all of those tips! I also like to think of how fast time actually goes by. To do that I'll say well I am going to test in like 22 days... then I look back at 22 days before and realise how that seems not so far from today .

I understand you Stillwaiting, whatever I do, it's always in the back of my mind and I know I have that impatient fealing inside ahaha. I just try to pretend that I am not feeling it .

Browse justmommies boards! I thought I would be more patient this time around because I already have a toddler, but no. I'm hopeless. I'm embarrassed to say how many ovulation and pregnancy test strips I used last month.

Prayer. It's the only thing that got me through it before and it's the only thing that will get me through it this time.

So far, NOTHING! and we haven't even started TTC technically. I try to keep my head in work, stay busy with crafts and my son at home- but it still eats at me 24/7. I can't stay patient.
