Beating the stress of TTC

I'm sure we can all relate to the stress that comes with TTC.  I don't think this is the journey any of us thought it would be.  I had been on bc pills for years and always worried that if I missed one little pill that I'd be unexpectedly pg.  The further I got into TTC I realized that it was not as easy as I had thought it would be and I'm not one of the lucky girls who got pg the first few months.  I thought it would be nice to share with some of our newer members some ways for beating the stress of TTC.  I had really great luck with the circle and bloom program which is something I bought on the internet and downloaded. It is a guided imagry made for women who are TTC during a natural cycle or undergoing fertility treatments etc. I also found that exercise really helped when AF came to crash my party.  I also spent a good deal of time here venting to all the women here and they were great with helping me through my rough times. 

What do you do to combat the stress of TTC?  Any suggestions for other members who are struggling with this crazy journey?

I agree that exercise helps a lot. I like to run when I feel that AF is showing up, it helps to get out all the negative feelings and calms me down. I've also just started yoga to see if it will help with the stress levels, and hoping it will help me in focusing on something else instead of TTC.

It's easy to obsessed and difficult to keep your mind off it sometimes! I had to always have some way to keep occupied!
