How do you relax when everyone around you is getting pregnant?

I have been ttc for almost 4 months and its hard to relax and just let it happen when everywhere i look i see pregnant bellies! I have 4 women i know that are pregnant one of which wasnt even trying! I find it hard to relax and let it happen without getting discouraged. i know there is women out there that have been trying for years but im young and healthy *sigh* . We havent been actively trying but we arent preventing it either, my soon to be mother in law suggested taking a HPT once a month till we get a positive. I have been wanting a child for a few years now and it gets more and more frustrating.

  • yeah, everyone around me is either pregnant or just had a newborn! I want one more SOOOO bad!!! DH is comeing home from deployment in a couple days (YAY!) but having another baby with him readjusting to life isn't going to be happening. I wish!! i sure do. One day it will happen and it'l be so much better then instead of now. I know you've waited a very long time, but it could be just around the corner! We got pregnant after year of not actively trying but not preventing either. We were having sex 2-5 x's a day too. we really enjoy sex..... It will happen when you least expect it! GL!

  • Why don't you just wait I tried for a year in a half and finally it happened. When the time is right for you and your soon to be hubby it will happen. I know you have probably heard that to but it will happen you don't want to be stressed out that can cause you to take longer also. GL and I will pray for a baby for you and you SO.

  • Spend a lot of time with the pregnant women, it helps. I got pregnant when living with a pregnant roommate and when I looked into it it can up your chances 25% to be in really close contact with a pregnant woman while ttc.

  • What's hard is wanting one so bad, Right now I'd be happy to have one given to me, but I'd want to BF.

  • Hun I know exactly what you are feeling!!! We have also been trying for about 4 or 5 months, and I just found out my SIL and 2 others are pregnant. I was so upset when I found out. I honestly dont know how to relax either! But, if you wanna be TTC frustration buddies (lol) just send me a pm!!

  • Rather than feeling upset, try to gather in that energy and happiness from pregnant women.. write your baby a letter.. sit and visualize your pregnant belly, meditate, see your baby. Spend your energy on positive things rather than negative :)
