slinktobee:  LOL nothing other then to try and stay busy!  Its really hard.  Its hard to wait, its hard not to symptom spot, its hard not to test early….TTC is just hard all around!

 

ETA:  Try an find a good book to read or something to binge watch on Netflix.  You will make it 🙂  FXd its not a long journey for you!

I mainly stress when it gets closer to my fertile week, and the rest of the time is just a waiting game… and really only until your fertile window, when you O, and then when your period is expected to start. So, really… only a week and some days are when my anxiety sets in.

I just keep busy doing what I was doing before we started TTC back in September, so I am farily new to it all. I know that the first 2 cycles had bad timing, and this one won’t be that great since DH is out of town during my peak fertile window timeframe… but, what can I do? Just keep trying and not focus on it so much until I need to (fertile week).

I’m naturally a very anxious person so I would test a few days before AF is expected.

That way, if the test is negative you can expect your period and it takes a bit of the unknown away which is what really sets my anxiety off.

I am in the same boat.  I was married in Feb.  We just started this month.  I’m in the 2 week wait, due for period on Thanksgiving.  I fully did not expect to get pregnant the first try, but now that we tried, I’m anxious.  Not knowing is hard.  And I have weird body changes even though it’s too soon so I am symptom spotting like crazy.  And then worried about if I want to take an ibuprofen or an allergy medicine…it’s just hard not knowing.
