How to not obsess?!

Jun 13th, 2018, 17:57 PM   #1
Hi all! I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. I have been with my partner (recently became my fiancé!) for 9 years now and very nearly completed renovating our house which has taken three years in total. I always said to myself then when the house was finished I really want to try for our first baby, but I always felt a bit anxious and like I was coming up with excuses to wait a while longer.

Well since getting engaged we both agreed we both want a little one more than anything, so we are going to start trying soon. I am currently on day two of my period and already TTC is on my mind all the time and I've constantly got that anxious/excited feeling! Naturally I'm quite an obsessive person and I know that if it doesn't happen for us straight away I'm going to become anxious and panicky. I already feel that way and we can't even TTC until my period is over!

I'm 27, my fiancé is 28, I have fairly regular cycles, usually around 30 days but sometimes give or take a couple of days. I have done ovulation sticks over the past few months to check I got an LH surge, which I did, and I even became obsessive doing those and got really anxious when the surge didn't arrive when I thought it would! I haven't tracked my basal temp though. I already know that I'll be symptom spotting like mad on this first month. I am so impatient and just want my period to hurry up and be over!

Does anybody have any tip or advice for a very anxious person on how to just go with the flow and enjoy TTC?!

Welcome to the forum I’m afraid you’re mostly joining like-minded people on here! Hence the two week wait threads and symptoms spotting threads. We are all as bad as each other lol. I hope your TTc journey is quick and that you can enjoy it x

Welcome I'm on first cycle to and I'm the same once I commit to something I'm all in so I'm lucky out first cycle has come in my busiest month so the only days I have time to obsess is the days I'm at home not doing much but I've like 7 days till testing now so it's getting abit harder as I got a test ready just incase af doesn't arrive and I'm so desperate to take it and see lol
