Husband and I are planning to starting TTC in November or December, but my brain is already completely taken over by pregnancy/baby thoughts. I haven’t even stopped taking BC yet (this is my last month on it), but I already spend the week before my period imagining “what ifs” and “wouldn’t it be wild ifs.” Like… What if I were pregnant now? Wouldn’t it be wild if right as I’m about to quit BC, I suddenly got pregnant?
And my body encourages it along. Hmm, my lower back hurts. Does pregnancy cause back pain? Today I feel nauseated. Is my first thought food poisoning or stomach bug? Nope, wondering if I could be pregnant. It’s ridiculous.
Is anybody else going through the I-want-to-be-pregnant-so-bad mind games?

We started TTC this month. But last month, I actually did a pregnancy test only to discover that PMS perfectly fits the description of early pregnancy symptoms. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had PMS before. But with baby brain, it all becomes “Headaches? Sore boobs? Nausea? Food cravings? Could it be?”.

I’m paranoid and I’ve watched too much of “I didn’t know I was pregnant,” so I’m always paranoid that even if I get my period, I could be pregnant. But I’m not trying to get pregnant. Haha. But yeah, the symptoms are very similar to a lot of things, including PMS.

@glittermoon: That show is dangerous! My husband runs in fear when I turn it on 😉 I *know* that I’ve been doing this mind game every month for a while now, yet I can’t help it. I also can’t imagine how much crazier I’ll feel once we really are TTC.

If Aunt Flo is even just one day late, I start to wonder, lol. J and I aren’t TTC, but we aren’t really doing to much (other than the occasional protection) to prevent it either.

We decided to start TTC about 3 months ago. We figured I would finish the pack I was on and then we would start trying. Well I couldn’t even finish the 2 weeks I was so excited!!
My mind is constantly playing games on me. It is always one this or another. I watched Baby story the other day and it scared the crap out of me! I changed to the channel right when this lady was pushing and OMG! I couldn’t switch the channel fast enough. I have watched a couple episodes since then and I am still scared but the end result looks so worth it!
I cannot wait! Our deadline is January. I don’t want to be pregnant at our wedding so I just keep hoping it works out before then!!! *fingers crossed*

Oh “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” haha
I was on a kick watching that show for awhile. One night after dinner I got really sick (it didn’t agree with me) and I was in the bathroom, it was erm… unpleasant.
My husband legit started freaking out and yelled “KATY ARE YOU HAVING A TOILET BABY RIGHT NOW?!”
