Feeling down...
Thu, 10-20-2011 - 8:58pm

Good Evening, Ladies....not sure what's going on tonight but I'm feeling really down. Sometimes I get to thinking about how bad I want to be pregnant and I start feel like i'm disappointing DH even though he tries to be supportive and he never has said anything to make me think I am letting him down I still worry about it. Then I start worrying that all my worrying will mess up O....it's such an awful mean circl.

Any support on how to relax?

I have been a little better about it this month. Normally, I'm crazy emotional about TTC especially when I hear other people are pregnant. But, as I sit here laying in the hospital room with my Mamaw (she just had knee replacement Tuesday) so I'm her slumber party buddy tonight, I feel like I've wasted the past 6-7 months complaining and carrying on about this. We want a baby, so bad, but I'm missing out on important things by obsessing. I think I needed this just as much as my Mamaw did. If I were at home, everything normal, I'd be lying awake obessing about what time should I test? I usually get up 2 times a night to pee. But, now, its not even bothering me.

I know its not advice, but I took a step back and realized I was crazed there for a while. So desperate to begin another chapter of our lives, but forgetting some of the important things.. I don't know how long this new attitude will last for me, but I kinda like it :)

Good luck to you! I'm a chronic worrier so I know where you are coming from. My mamaw always says I'll get an ulcer one day!

Awe, sorry you're feeling down. Ttc totally messes with your head :( I kept all my negative, crappy feelings bottled up & then had a major ttc meltdown & completely unleashed all of my frustrations on dh. It was awful & I totally don't recommend it!! Personally, I'm going to start sharing more of my feelings with dh as they come up instead of keeping it inside. It might help to share your feelings with hubs -I know mine had no idea the extent of crap I had kept to myself.

Venting here always helps too :)
