First Month TTC

Hello everyone! It is our first month TTC and I've been waiting over a year for DH to be ready! If my calculations are right , AF is to arrive on 3/27. I tested this morning and it was negative. I was so devastated. I know there is still a chance I could be pregnant but I feel like I've wanted this for so long it was just a huge let down. I'm going to have to change my way of thinking about TTC because I don't want to go through these emotions every month. I would appreciate any advice you all have for not going crazy during the 2WW and negative tests!

Hello, and welcome to the board! The 2WW is always hard, and negative tests are too! If AF isn't due until 3/27, it's certainly possible that you could be testing too early at this point. Are you charting your cycle to determine when you ovulate?

In terms of maintaining general sanity in this process, I'll second what Dina said about keeping busy! I try to keep a few goals/projects in the works at all times, so I have things to look forward to and work toward besides being pregnant. It helps keep me from focusing *too* much on trying to conceive! (Most of the time, at least ...)
