I’ve noticed that while TTC I feel up, and then I feel down. I’m not always TTC cause I want to be a certain amount of pregnant at my best friend’s wedding lol! But anyways, we have been TTC off and on since we got marriend in August. I’m not pregnant yet and that’s good because it’s safe to TTC next month and not be huge for my friend’s wedding in NY. But, I still feel sad seeing some of my friends pregnant after one month of trying, talking about it nonstop, knowing some girls who didn’t want a baby, got pregnant, and then all of the sudden wanted to me mommies. It feels weird sometimes. But, at the same time I feel happy to go out with my husband and have wine here and there, and not worry about money etc etc. I see why I’m NOT pregnant, and trust that there’s a reason for it. But I still get emotional sometimes, and those thoughts of, “What if I CAN’T get pregnant” come to mind (even though that’s a bit irrational since it hasn’t even been a year yet). My husband super wants a baby, and so do I. I know it will all happen eventually and it will be perfect timing, but can’t help but feel sad sometimes. My brother got married in November, and they got pregnant in December. I am sooo happy to be an auntie. But I wanna be a mommy too. I guess in due time. Thanks for letting me vent!

I can totally relate.
Since I have come off of birth control in July, I have often felt like I alternating between limbo and an emotional roller coaster.
I am sad because I want a baby, then relieved, because we have lots of reno’s to do, and I won’t be able to help as much when I am pregnant, then scared, because I have not had a normal cycle since coming off of birth control, and if it doesn’t happen soon I am going to have to start dealing with a fertility specialist, which I don’t really want to do …
Overall, I just wish I was pregnant though.

I can relate. I want it and do not equally- at least, that is how I feel sometimes. Plus, I am NOT good with unknowns. (hello! Welcome to life, cbee!)
You know what, they might not be pregnant after one month of trying. MANY people say that, but for all you know, they could have been trying for years. SERIOUSLY. (Just saying, I know people lie about this.)
I know it is a difficult time though, and something very beyond your control. Hang in there!

I totally know where your coming from. I have been pregnant twice and had two miscarriages with my future hubby. We plan on ttc after we are married in may and i really hope we have a healthy baby this time. It’s hard seeing all my friends who had babies after my miscarriages especially our one friend who found out his g.f was pregnant the same time we found out the first time. When i see his daughter it reminds me we should have a little one about her age right now. It’s hard and there are lots of ups and downs that come with TTC.

You are so not alone. I think we all have those moments. Hang in there.

@roxy_angell13: Wow I am so sorry. I can’t imagine how that feels. Thank you for your encouragement.
And thanks everyone else for relating, helps me realize I’m not the only one feeling sad sometimes, or feeling happy and sad for different reasons.
@Ms Mini: I totally feel them same.
@cbee: Thank you 🙂
