so i am ttw-ing (is that even a word?) right now, have around 9 days to go before AF is due… it’s my first time, since i just came off bc the end of january and this has been my first real cycle. how do people deal with the anxiety? i’m totally obsessive, imagining all kinds of pregnancy symptoms and generally driving myself crazy – while time just doesn’t seem to pass!
anyone who wants to commiserate? share strategies how to think of something else and keep yourselves from wasting all these HPTs because you know it’s too early?

This is our third month tyring, and I am 8 dpo today. This is the first month I have been super obsessive about it, and it’s driving me nuts! Every twinge and feeling is being overanalyzed! Hang in there and good luck!

It will get easier! This is our 3rd cycle TTC and AF is due 7 days from now. I try not to obsess, but one thing that makes it easier for me is I just keep a log of my “symptoms” (using the App My Days on my phone) so I have somewhere to unload everything. Obviously, nothing was a real pregnancy symptom until this point, but I’m hoping that it will be nice to have/share whenever I actually am pregnant and can see what my earliest signs actually were.
It is also good to have so I can compare months. I was SURE I was PG the first month b/c I had sore boobs like crazy, but I kept tracking symptoms each month and noticed that my breasts got sore around the same time each month, so it was just a natural occurence for me.

This is our second month trying. I was totally obessed last month, like you, symptom spotting like crazy. I was convinced I must be pregnant. Then AF came early and I was pretty devestated.
This month has been a lot easier. Due to my circumstances I’ve been kept very busy and have taken up a new hobby to make sure that it stays that way. I’ve found that that really helps. I’m 3DPO today and feeling okay so far!
