    I’m 31w and that thought still crosses my mind along with “omg – what did we do”. I think it’s normal!

    I had those panic feelings until I delivered DD. Lol

    We are TTC #2 right now and all those feelings are coming back.

    I didn’t stop freaking out until after she was born. My husband and I still look at her and go “OMG HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!”

    herrera2016 :  I wanted to get pregnant long before we started trying and then when I finally got a BFP, I freaked a little. Currently 7wks.

    I just got my BFP. (Very early days at 5 weeks but yay). I’m 41 and I think I would have felt like that 10 years ago but at this point I have nothing else in life left I could possibly want to do but be a mum, I think it’s probably your age. Wait until you’re old and bored and cynical like me haha.

    And yes I never got a positive OPK. I got one that was almost there but wasn’t. I stopped doing them after month 2 as they were a waste of time and money. I still got pregnant at the not exactly young age of 41 on cycle 5 and I saw zero EWCM that cycle either. I went by the way I felt and it obviously worked. So don’t get too hung up on what you’re told you have to do/see. It just stresses you out.

    Ummm I was panicking walking the hallways of the hospital during my induction. There was a lady feeding her baby a bottle in the nursery and I was like “WTF have we done?! We don’t know how to take care of a baby! This was a horrible idea!”

    But after she was born everything was awesome. Sometimes we still look at her and are like, can you believe we made a tiny human?! lol

    herrera2016 :  Completely, completely normal. I look at my 2-year-old sometimes and go “Who thought THIS was a good idea to make me responsible for a human?” You’re bound to have some very natural fears and worries going into this experience. Obviously if it escalates into panic attacks or depression, then go talk to a professional to help you sort out those fears and anxieties. And just keep in mind your hormones will mess with you on that front from time to time.

    And while it seems very frightening, you’ll learn fast and you’ll be surprised how quickly everything goes from “OMG!” to “No big deal.”

    Well I’m glad to have read this post… as I am very prone to anxiety and since we decided to TTC next summer and i am currently losing weight for it…every few days I get “holly crap so we really are going to do to this in 8 months AHHHH!!!…” so I can totally see how I will be feeling the exact same way when we actually TTC and after BFP and most likely forever lol

    The 2nd month we were TTC I saw an evap line on the stick and freaked! I was like, ahhhh this is all happening too fast! I wasn’t serious I take it back!!

    But by the time I did get my BFP at month 5 I was SO ready for it! It’s such a fun and exciting/scary time, enjoy it! Good luck 🙂

    Yup seems normal. I spend half the month going ‘crikey how will we manage/omg what if I’m pregnant/I don’t know if we’re ready’… and the other half thinking ‘c’mon fertile days/where’s my temp spike’… and a bit in between when I feel sad after peeing on a stick and getting a neg or seeing AF has arrived. 


    And to to answer your question about opks. I find them really sensitive on the time of day and random in them showing a positive when I’m clearly ovulating according to chart and temping. They are the avocados of the ttc world…”no, no, no, no (don’t test for 2 seconds), too late now”

    Definitely normal. I had a baby almost 4 months ago and I still get those pangs, lol. Good luck, sending lots of baby dust your way! 🙂
