What is your favorite way to get pregnancy off your mind?

We're trying to conceive, and now I'm 2 DPO so the window is closed. Now comes the hard part, waiting until I can test! I'm such an impatient person (working on it!) and all I can think about is how much longer I have to wait.

What's your favorite trick for getting it off your mind?

  • Get a hobby? Read? Do something productive? Garden? Anything that takes you mind off because stress hormones will block chances

  • I'm plenty busy enough, I just need a way to get it off my mind while I'm doing everything, haha. I should have mentioned that, sorry!

  • I'm just as bad as you are. when i get to the few days before AF I am eyeballing tests like crazy wanting to test but I focus on the wasted money if i test too soon and will got clean or do some yard work.. pulling weeds works great!

  • yes i know all too well, theres gotta be something to distract us ladies from TTC and playing the waiting game ugh! well i am also very impatient! but working on projects which require a lot of thought are best to distract me, cuz if i have even a moment of empty time to get lost in thought then OOPS! all those baby thoughts come flooding in, so start with the most thought-consuming projects and hobbies

  • I do a lot what I call 'pushing around.' Organizing, recycling, going through old papers and magazines. Also surfing the web - finding new blogs.

  • I pull weeds!!! I have a HUGE backyard and we just planted grass about 3 months ago, so we are trying to rid ourselves of stickers, so our future children have a beautiful yard to play in!!!
