Do you find TTC harder than WTTC or is it just me?
When we set our TTC date, I had over a year to wait and felt like it would never get here. I spent a ton of time here on JM reading about everything there was to read and feel like I really learned a lot! This site really is great! I used to love reading through the DDCs and seeing what everyone was going through each month of the pregnancy. But now that we're finally TTC, I find it harder to read those threads and just haven't been spending much time over there. I don't know if it's because I once thought or hoped I would have joined a DDC by now and would be going through those things by this point or what. I don't let it get to me and really don't stress over not being pregnant yet, I just seem less interested in reading baby things lately. I know I haven't even been TTC for that long yet, we're just on our 3rd cycle, just wondering if anyone else feels the same way.
I am actually right there with you. When I was wttc I felt more obsessive about learning all I needed to know. Granted I am only in my first cycle TTC, but I am just kind of taking it each day at a time. I haven't been lurking nearly as much on other boards either. I think I don't want to build up the possibility of being pregnant to the point where if it doesn't work out my first few cycles that I end up devastated. Because I know that it takes a while to get pg for most couples, I am just taking it easy and doing what I can to make it happen.
I think if I let myself obsess too much then I will be too broken-hearted when AF shows up each month. I also have a new job where I am wayyyy busier than at my last job. It's really time consuming and I have way less time to visit JM like I used to during the day. LOL. I am thinking it is probably a good thing.
