Is this kind of normal or a sign we should wait? We’ve been married 3 years and are in our early 30’s. We’re finally financially stable. I guess we’re nervous about life changing forever if/when we do get pregnant. Did this happen to anyone else?

God yes I was excited to start trying but I was terrified… Even now as I sit here waiting to see if I get a BFP or AF this week I’m still kinda scared because it is such a change, and we have already been trying 6 months so it’s not like I’m in my first TWW. My DH and I are also in our early 30s and both knew we wanted kids from a young age. I think (hope) is perfectly normal to be a little worried!
btw at the same time at I’m terrified I also can’t wait to be a mummy so I guess I’m ready 🙂 tbh only you know if you’re both ready…

I was def excited, but terrified that it wouldnt happen and what if it never happens. I wasnt scare or nervous of the TTC journey, I am still terrified of what if never happens for us. I am still waiting for my BFP and this is our 12th cycle. I think its normal to feel like that. It will be a big change in your life, but I see it as good wonderful and just exciting change that the two of you get to go through together 🙂

What a timely post. I’m thinking about when to start TTC as well. My problem is that I don’t really have secure employment, and I don’t want to be pregnant and looking for work. But then… if I wait, I could be waiting forever… and I’m not getting any younger.

We’re in our early 30s, married 3.5 years, financially stable, and I’m 31 weeks pregnant, and I still freak out every now and then about how our lives are going to change! I think it’s 100% normal to be scared of giving up the “known” for the “unknown”.
Even this weekend I had a minor panic attack because on Friday, we just up and decided to drive to a restaurant 45 minutes away that we love on a whim and I kept thinking “we’ll never be able to do this again!”
In the end, I still think the good will outweigh the bad. Yeah, we’ll be giving up a certain amount of freedom and spontinaity, but we’ll be gaining so much more in terms of life experiences and milestones with our LO, so I just keep focusing on that.
And, we’re still going to make a huge effort to have “us” time. We already have the first Grandparent babysitting night lined up for DH’s birthday which is 3 weeks after my due date. Having these moments to look forward to is also making the transition easier.

It is super scary, but if you just kind of forget about it (which I know is hard to do) you have fun and let it happen. It gets easier, but the first time you know you are TTC is the hardest.
We just did a NTNP for a month or two, and then we actively tried and were successful. Seeing the pink line is even more terrifying!
