This is my first cycle TTC. I am 31 years old and even though I have been married for 6 years, I and DH were not in a position before for TTC.
Even though I had convinced myself that I would not fret about conceiving, that is not happening. I went all out buying all kinds of stuff- OPKs, maybemom saliva kit, preseed and have been charting as well. I am becoming a control freak that I had promised myself I wouldn't be. How dissapointed will I be when I get to know this is not the month for BFP (which is most likely the case).

How do you handle stress when trying to do this stuff?

I know I am probably overdoing the planning thing, but how to avoid it?

I have been devouring this forum and reading up on every little TTC detail on the internet. I am convinced I have every symptom of infertility (early menopause, hypothyroisism/ infertility because of planning to late, estrogen surplus etc etc etc).

Hwo to keep sane?

It can be overwhelming trying to stay sane during this process but one thing to always remember is that you have no control over what/when it will happen. My dh and I started out by trying to plan everything including what months
