How to you handle TTCing?

Since my husband and I started trying to get pregnant again after our miscarriage, I am having a hard time NOT over analyzing! Every cramp, gas bubble, and twinge is analyzed and spun to be a pregnancy symptom. HELP! I have two more days until “Aunt Flow” is due, and I honestly feel insane. 

How do you all handle the terrible two week wait?!

  1. After my miscarriage I became obsessed with having another baby. I tracked my ovulation, took my temperature…honestly I don’t even remember because it’s been so long. I don’t know how but I survived that pregnancy but the point is that I did. The point is that we conceived and probably not because of anything I was doing (besides the obvious). I agree with Teresa and it is is easier said than done to relax and trust.

  2. The two week waits never got easier for me. Some people are better at keeping themselves busy, but I had to just give in and let myself overanalyze. My wife and I kept a BINGO sheet of pregnancy symptoms for a while and that helped us keep some levity when it got ridiculous.
    I think what helped the most for me was fully realizing that there’s just not enough pregnancy hormone to feel any symptoms until after you’d get a positive test. And then of course when we finally got our positive, it was hard to believe because I didn’t feel anything for a week or two after.
    tl;dr – Analyze away, then breathe deep and try to let go.

  3. It took us almost a year to conceive and every single cycle, I overanalyzed EVERY little thing. The cycle I got pregnant, I had zero symptoms. Nothing. It was funny and ironic, but it goes to show that symptoms (or lack thereof) don’t really mean anything that early on, so I agree that relaxing and trusting is the best method. 🙂

  4. Honestly? I worked to just let it go and give it to God. I ended up getting pregnant the first cycle we tried after my loss, but it was much better when I just gave it to God and let the waiting go.

  5. Oh…I can remember staring at the calendar and over analyzing everything! Honestly…nothing makes it completely go away. You will think about it. I tried hobbies, friends, books, movies…the thing that helped the most though was prayer. I spent hours and hours each month praying as I was anxiously waiting to find out if I was pregnant.

    I’m praying for you and understand the struggle more than I would like to.

  6. I’m told the best way to guarantee a positive test is to sit in a hot tub for 6 hours and drink a bottle of wine. LOL

    I was never predictable enough to know if there were only 2 weeks left to wait…or one, or four, or six, or three….
