My TTC date is just around the corner (May) and we're about to start the year we will TTC, 2009.

I am hoping these feelings are normal b/c I was going through the same thing a few months ago.

Absolutely - and I think it's totally normal! I think it would be more worrisome if you had no doubts or worries about it. It's a huge step - life altering - and not to be taken lightly. So, the fact that you're thinking about those things means you're on the right track! I'm sure by the time you TTC you'll be more than ready :D


Thanks to Tara from Signature Showcase for my wonderful siggie!

I think its totally normal to feel like that!


You have no idea how relieved I felt to learn that my mom (during all three of her pregnancies) was an absolute nervous wreck for those reasons, and many more.

Those feeling are very normal, IMO.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!

Don't count on them going away when you begin TTC!

Now that it is officially 2009 and I've recently gone off BCP, our upcoming TTC date is starting to seem even more real. I think it is totally normal for us to have these feelings. For me, it's been a sort of nervous excitement.


I chose 5/1/09 for my ticker but I think we'll start sometime during the summer. Financially we'll be set and we'll both be done with our educational goals once the baby arrives but I'm a little worried about the economy in general and whether it's a good time to TTC. DH is on

Echoing Jamie's post - I have one friend during a disucssion on her fears who said "I don't think we knew what we were doing"

I simply pointed to her 6 month belly and said "all evidence is to the contrary". ;)

She was nervous - and knew it was because she got pregnant FASTER than she was expecting! She thought it would take about 6 months, so they could finalise various financials. First cycle of BCP she fell pregnant. Didn't believe it to the extent of trying 6 HPTs - and then wanted the doctor to confirm (he said it wasn't nescessary after that number of +ve HPTs!)

They have a gorgeous 9mo boy now, and are about to try for #2 so the change obviously wasn't THAT bad :).

Although I'm over 12 months away, I still think 'what am I getting myself into' - and that's with living together and a wedding to come first! I think it's perfectly normal.

I think it's pretty normal. I have the horrible habit of second guessing myself in the waiting time while TTC, you know, when it's definitely too late to take it back. Silly, really! The fact is that what ever kind of experience you have, you will make it through. As for the birth.... no matter what happens, labor won't last forever! Once you hold that baby in your arms what ever you had to go through to get there doesn't matter/ seems totally worth it! :)
Hang in there! After all, you have all of that fantastic Baby Dancing to look forward to!

I agree with Alyssa - Having these worries just means you're being realistic. Parents worry about their kids every single day of their lives. You're just practicing. :-)
