Sooo….I’m going to be honest and admit that I’ve become a little obsessive about TTC. FI and I decided that we would NTNP but it’s the sort of thing I’m thinking about when I wake up, when I go to sleep and sometime in between. I’m going to be an older mom, and at the dawn of a new year, it really has hit me pretty hard today.
The truth is we’re super early in the process so it’s way too soon to be obsessing about it as much as I do. i don’t want to rush my life away one ovulation cycle at the time. Plus I’m sure that obsessing can’t help things..so I’m going to take a break.
I hoping that I’ll have a few other folks to join me in the next 45 days. I know my fertile days, and will keep BD-ing….just no testing. Maybe this will give us time to stop obsessing and get knocked up LOL!!
Anyone care to join me and stop obsessing? Tomorrow is Day #1

@BrideofGroomzilla: Good for you! My husband and I are NTNP, leaning more towards the preventing side. We got pregnant first cycle of this (currently in the process of chemical pregnancy). I have started to obsess a little going through all of this now, but my husband and doctor both talked me down. We are just going with the flow of things. Sad about the chemical pregnancy because of course no one wants for that to happen, but at the same time we aren’t quite ready to be parents (again, if it happens it happens!). I am going to let me hormones get back to normal and hopefully stop worrying. We have been doing natural family planning, which makes me wonder because like I said, I got pregnant that way! Again, we will see what happens.
Good luck to you my friend. Just enjoy your time with your fiance and have a WONDERFUL 2014:)

NEbride2Be I’m sorry for your loss. Thanks so much for your reply. Something like this is so much easier with a support team. Wasn’t sure if anyone else needed a break from obsessing too. Have a wonderful 2014 as well!!

@BrideofGroomzilla: With this being our 4th cycle TTC, it’s still pretty early days for us, too, but I am also feeling obsessive about it. I think I might join you ladies soon! I am down to my last 6 OPKs, and I’m not planning on ordering any more.
I’ve also been charting for almost 2 years (not for TTC purposes that whole time, though). I haven’t fully decided yet if I want to stop charting for a bit. I like knowing when I need to be on period patrol so that I don’t get any surprise bleeding catching me off guard. But on the other hand, they’ve been pretty regular, so I might be able to get away with letting go of the charting, too.

Thanks for joining me in the struggle. I’m waiting for mine too. I’ve never recorded my cycle info or charting so I’m just getting the hang of it. I’m waiting on AF too, but I could have had my days wrong…we’ll see. Did AF show up?
IAmTheShadow, Same here I have a few OPK’s that just sit in my cabinet calling my name. I’ve ignored them so far. I did PT last week because AF didn’t show up…but I got a bfn. I’m okay with that for now.
Also I tried to stay off the TTC board, because the more I read about TTC it makes me want to go pee on a stick LOL.
This is Day #5 of no OPK for me, and I’ve managed to think of other things..yay!!!

Unfortunately NTNP isn’t an option for me because I have endometriosis every month off the pill makes my Endo worse. I also need to time things well due to some issues with DH, so I gotta keep the OPK’s, but I am definitely quitting POanyS starting this month. Too many BFN’s and I’m getting (getting-hah who am I kidding right?) neurotic.
