Not ttc yet but I just attended a baby shower for someone at work and I cried over how cute baby stuff was when I was picking out her gift. I have hardcore baby fever and everyone around me is having babies! It’s a problem. 

I also bought a cute little bib that has a giraffe on it (giraffes are my thing) and it says daddy’s little dinner date on it. My Fiance thinks I’m nuts… But it was adorable! Lol we’ve also been talking more and more about babies and timelines and stuff so I think that it’s been adding to my baby craze.

We went on our honeymoon to Maui in April, and while we were there I had a meltdown about babies – when to have them, if we wanted them now, etc. Ultimately we decided to hold off until 2017, which I felt really good about.

Then the day after we got home I said we should buy more condoms (not on BC.) So we did. Then I had another meltdown a couple hours later because I didn’t want to use them! We ended up TTC that night. Never even opened that box, haha 🙂 But I felt absolutely nuts for changing my mind so fast.

After a recent spate of facebook pregnancy announcements for months we’d tried for, I ended up hysterically crying to my husband ‘it just feels like they stole my baaabbbbyyy’. He was SO confused!

My friend told me she when she was going to start TTC, and got pregnant within 3 months of that…and I cried. 

Then she found out it was a boy and is naming him the ONLY name DH and I have ever agreed upon in the 2.5 years we’ve been TTC.  She didn’t know this though.  I cried. 

Now she’s having a baby shower and doing his nursery in a theme that I have secretly pinned on Pinterest.  So like

beebeedeebee:  if feels like she unknowingly stole my baby. lol 

Needless to say, I have a beach vacay planned the weekend of her shower, and will send a gift via another friend. 

Also, I have taken 2 HPTs in one night because I convinced myself that the first one was negative because I had drank a lot of water that afternoon and so it must be too diluted. SMH

MissCountryGirl727:  oh my god, that sucks!!! I would be devastated if someone used the names I like (my cousin actually used one of my faves last month)

I think that’s completely reasonable to skip the shower. There’s one I’m dreading for July for a girl whose the pregnant equivalent of a bridezilla. I figure if you’re going to be miserable they’re better not having you there!

I’m not ttc right now but dude… I was married in my 20s. We ttc for like 7 years. Anywho, I read somewhere to use eggs whites as lube. Thinking about this makes me both crack up and remember how nuts it made me. We’d actually sit there and break an egg and get the white and rub it on.

I feel you.  The craziest thing I’ve been doing is I’ve been massaging my uterus and ovaries after a yoga video or laying in bed while tellling myself my I am fertile and desperately trying to believe it.  I’ve also read about “spirit babies” and sometimes I also talk to my future baby who’s still in heaven, letting him/her know that we are ready!  Last 2 cycles I cried on the first day of AF, and I get really quiet and depressed when I’m around a baby or anyone talking about babies or pregnancy.

I feel like I’m actually losing my mind!  This is the hardest thing I think I’ve ever had to deal with.

I had a total emotional break down when out with a friend having drinks.  Crying, saying I just want the stress to stop. 

I have also researched every possible supplement.  My SO even bought ginsing and ashwaganda drops and Mecca powder.  Those things taste horrible but we suffered through it for a cycle just in case. 

Also did not go to a baby shower on purpose.  (was not emotionally ready to go and thought it was better to stay home then to make a possible scene with tears).
