Ok...DH and I are "TTC"...I'm using quotes there because both of us don't want to SAY we are, because we're afraid it's going to lead to not being fun anymore and disappointment, and of course being told that the moment you stop trying, it will happen. However, this act of TTC but not TTC, makes me think about it even more, LOL! We both are at a point that we want it to happen, but the only thing "extra" we're doing to make it happen is I lay on my back with my knees to my chest afterwards to keep it in...
Anyway...how do I get these thoughts out of my head??? Every time I feel nauseous, every time I'm a little extra sleepy, every time I have a mood swing...or like right now I feel a little emotional and my lower back hurts and I haven't done anything today (day off work) to make it hurt...and I think "maybe I am!" I don't go rushing to take a test each time, because I don't think I am. I do test once a month before I start my Progesterone pill (prescribed because I wasn't ovulating), and I'm getting more and more disappointed each month that it comes up negative.
I've heard of women just KNOWING that they are, and part of me keeps thinking that I am, but then the time comes for me to test, and I'm not...but then, I've heard of women not getting a positive hpt WELL into their pregnancy...and my SIL went into labor not knowing she was pregnant (she never tested, because she had her "period" each month)...so, in a way, my hopes are still up, but then I get paranoid that I'm going to be like my SIL.
Now...to my question...while you were TTC, what did you do to get your mind off of it??? What happened each time you had a symptom??
