DH has been telling me lately that he is not feeling very good, he is having anxiety attacks they don't last much but they are there, and I can see his frustration.
I've been dealing with depression and anxiety for about 2 years and I know how hard it can be, I think that he feels pressured because we are not getting pg, today I mentioned that his b-day is 3 1/2 months away and he just started feeling sick, he is turning 27, but he has a tremendous fear that we won't have a child by the time he hits 30.
I feel terrible because I don't know how to help him, their is nothing that I want more that to get pg, but it's not happennig and other that go to the dr. run tests and take meds, everygthing is out of my hands.
I'm afraid DH will fall into depression, it's tough thing to go trough
I know how he feels. I'm 27 and I have this fear I won't have kids by 30. It's normal to feel that way when it comes to TTC. It's so stressful. All you can do is be there for him and keep you and him busy to get it off mind.
I understand the fear too. I hit 28 this year, so 30 is not that far away. DH hit 30 last October and he is very upset about still not having any kids. He really wanted to be a younger parent. We already know he will be at least 31 before we have kids but hopefully there will at least be one on the way when his next birthday comes and goes.
It is hard, I know I keep having anxiety attacks because of it too. We didn't even start TTC until we were both 31 so it hard now because I worry that I'll 35 and then our changes will just be even smaller
