It’s a totally normal feeling.  It’s a big life change.  Even when you feel you are ready, it’s still a change knowing there will be someone in your life that you are totally responsible for.

anonymous2018 :  when we first started TTC, especially that first month, every time we had sex we were like “omg we just made a baby! AHH THIS IS INSANE!”

Narrator: they had not made a baby.

For us at least the awe and fear/excitement went away after a couple cycles, when you get used to the idea.

Yes I had this feeling. I’m 20 weeks now and still sometimes panic that it’s too soon we’re not prepared and should have waited til xyz. It’s totally normal!

I’ll echo everything said above. The panic/worry comes in waves with TTC and pregnancy. I vividly remember driving home one day pregnant (can’t remember how far along) and totally freaking out that I wasn’t responsible enough to be a mom. (I was, I just let my mind talk me into an idea that scared me about not being ready). My D-D is three now and I’m pregnant again and even after trying for 4 cycles and then finally getting that BFP you have moments of questioning/worry/doubt. Totally normal.

Yes. I feel this way every single time I remember how much daycare costs. :’D

But I’ve come to accept that I’m such a planner that I’ll always panic about the costs associated with childbearing and will never feel like we’re financially ready. I’m not getting any younger and I can always make more money… I can’t go back in time and decide I should have had kids.

So here we go!

Darling Husband and I have been TTC for basically 4 YEARS now and I still freak out every time I think I’m pregnant.  I mean, our life is pretty great right now and having a baby would totally change things.  It would be a good change, but change is hard!
