Paranoid about TTC, and not even trying yet

Your doctor would tell you about any major problems – bad paps, feeling cysts on your ovaries, etc.  But they probably wont do much until you are actively TTC for 6 months without getting pregnant.

I kept stressing that it would take forever to conceive because of what everyone kept telling me. 

We conceived first try.

Don’t stress, chart your days correctly and it will all work out. Even if it doesn’t happen immediatly it will happen

I don’t think your mom’s history is directly related to you. My mom had 3 miscarriages before she had me, and I was born a month early and weighed only 4 pounds. I, on the other hand, got pregnant with a sticky baby the first time DH didn’t pull out, and we weren’t even trying. I think it’s just the luck of the draw.

@marzipanda:  This was my experience as well.  

My mother had trouble conceiving me (second child), but I was moreso concerned that my weight and menstrual issues would cause problems.  We got knocked up on our first try.  Good luck to you, OP!

I went through that a few months ago. My mom and sister have both had multiple miscarriages and my mom had trouble conceiving at all.  We aren’t trying until nov, but I started charting to keep track of what my body was doing.  It helps me feel reassured that everything is “normal” and has taken away a lot of the fear that I will never conceive.

it took my parents a year to conceive me and my husband and I were successful our first try. I wouldn’t worry 🙂

Another bee chiming in that I also had worries I would have issues. I have so many friends who suffer from infertility. My family has a history of early menopause so I got my AMH levels tested and they came back very low (1.4ng/ml), so I was worried that I would have issues. Got preggo the first time and am currently 13 weeks.

Oh man, I know exactly how you feel. We are both super ready for kiddos, but are waiting to TTC until we buy a house – we’re on about the same timeline as you, actually. Our 1 year wedding ann. is coming up, but it’s our 8th year together so we’re definitely ready, and waiting is hard, and we are receiving pressure from all of our friends and family since we have been together for so long. However, my mom, aunt, and grandma all have terrible, awful pregnancy histories and I have a lot of the same physical issues that my mother has, so I am super stressed and worried about having problems and I get irritated when people ask about it becuase what if when we are trying, it doesn’t work? I realize that this is irrational but I can’t help myself.

You’re not alone!

@blondie_bride:  i had my annual in august.  a year ago gyn found fibroids.  she told me right away and sent me for an ultrasound.  best thing for me to do was get pregnant ASAP but i wasn’t engaged yet.  surgery was a possibility but last resort.  gyn sent me to a specialist.  now i am less than a month away from TTC.  because of my situation, gyn said have fun the first three months and if I don’t have a BFP then we will look into the next steps.

so relax and enjoy, stress will only make it worse.

ETA: i am 32.

@blondie_bride:  My husband says this too.  How could you POSSIBLY know that you have super sperm?!  Do they wear capes?  Swimming caps to increase speed?
