Hi new friends,
I'm getting ready to start my first cycle soon and I feel exactly the same way as you. I'm scared to get excited b/c of the possible let down. BUT I really like what Elizabeth said about being devastated either way if it's a BFN, so best to let ourselves get excited and deal with what we get.
Might as well remain positive being negative can't be good on your mental health.

I have never posted here but have been reading it for awhile! I started taking BCP last week and will continue through next Tues and then I start all of my Stims on the 20th. I have been having so many emotions about everything too! I feel so anxious like waiting for Christmas morning for a child and then at the same time I feel so nervous and then at the same time I feel so excited b/c I've been waiting for this for a long time! I think everything you are feeling is normal for us. I have tried not to think to much about it not working just trying to stay positive that this is it! I'm sure that if it doesn't work I will be quite depressed which I'm sure is normal too. I think we just need to stay upbeat and from what I've read just take it 1 day at a time! Good Luck to you!
