You Know You're Obsessing When...

Trying to conceive can be serious business, but sometimes it can help to lighten the mood! If you didn’t get pregnant at the drop of a hat, you will no doubt identify with these “you know you’re obsessing when…” observations from members of the ever-popular Trying to Conceive message board.

  1. You take your temperature every five minutes.
  2. You touch your breasts more than your partner does.
  3. You check your panties about 30 times a day, just to be sure your period hasn't arrived.
  4. You drive your partner crazy talking about your "symptoms," and why you feel this is the month.
  5. You can't sleep at night because you know tomorrow's temp is the MOST IMPORTANT temperature you'll take all cycle.
  6. You keep making your partner look at your breasts! "Do they look different to you?"
  7. You plan your week around your schedule for sex.
  8. You repeatedly look at your chart during the day, as if the temps may magically change.
  9. You start talking about home pregnancy test sensitivities and your partner frantically starts searching for his Sports Illustrated.
  10. You buy 30 pregnancy tests on eBay for five dollars because it’s a good deal, and hey, you can test every day!
