I was hopeless when we first started our treatments, especially when the first round didn’t even make me ovulate! We went through 6 more rounds after that and then at the doctors advice took a month off. I use to obsess over every little symptom, every little change in temperature too. We took a month off and it was like a reset button, this cycle I’m more relaxed (and the medications finally worked how they should). I still get those moments of why me and how come it’s so easy for everyone else, but I find that for me not tracking makes things less stressful. I hope you are able to find what works for you, for me not tracking me things a lot less stressful and I’m more hopeful that medications will finally help and we will get our miracle baby. And when that baby comes, all of this will be a distant memory!

juliette.eliza: Please don’t feel guilty. I kinda know how you feel. We stopped actively trying for 8 months and here I am now at 34 and feel like I’ve wasted precious time. Sometimes though a break can do your mind good. Even though I need to temo to confirm O I can’t in a way as then I become too obsessed. By just using OPKs etc is what my mind can handle where I stay sane – well relatively so 😉  Stay focused but don’t let it consume you – you’ll find a way / even something to distract your mind. Fortunately I’ve started a new job that helps distract my mind.

Good luck in your TTC journey.
