My husband and I have not really begun to TTC yet.

I tend to obsess....but really knowing you have no control one way or another helps. But yes, I tend to wonder if anything I am feeling is pregnancy related:)

There really is no way of keeping sane during these 2 weeks, you wait each day for AF to show.....if you 'think' AF is 'supposed' to show & she doesn't, you start thinking, "am I pg?" Then you test a day or two later and you may get a bfn (because either you're not pg. OR you tested too early? but you just don't know?) THEN, AF still may not show?! And one still tests and still may get BFN........EVENTUALLY, you will find out, BUT each day you don't know drives you insane!!

I try to keep myself distracted with other things. Bury myself in work or start a craft project and having the holidays coming up will be a huge help. Thanksgiving will be at my house this year and im starting my christmas shopping so im hoping I can just get lost in it all and not stress over ttc. The only days it really gets to me is when im off from work sitting at home and bored. Boredom is the enemy during 2ww! Good luck, stay busy, and I hope you get your bfp soon!
