    Default How do you...

    ...keep from letting all the little "symptomy" things build up in your head?

    Examples..

    I usually tinkle 2-3 times a day. I've been going 8-9 times a day with actually waking up in the middle of the night to go..

    DD woke me up at 12:30 night before last and when I went to put her back to bed, I stopped to use her bathroom and had to hang there for 2-3 minutes because I was nauseated..

    I've had like crazy the past 2-3 days (that stink to high heaven )..

    I'm 8DPO today and took an HPT ( knowing it was still too early for anything.. ) but am honestly scared it's all in my head.

    The only thing that resounds in my head is DH saying a couple weeks ago that he might not even be able to have kids b/c he's 43 and never gotten anyone PG - never mind we had only gone through ONE cycle and I wasn't charting anything. He's been married twice before - once as a teen for a very short time and another in his 30's but she had endo very bad and couldn't have kids. He also hasn't DTD with but one other person b/c he's a firm believer in sex with your spouse only.. (We're Christians).

    So now you know more than you probably care to.. .. how do you keep from letting all the little things go to your head?

    I'm with everyone else. It's impossible to not obsess. Took us 27 months and 6 artificial inseminations to get DS... This is our first month not preventing and I'm already obsessing about how I'd tell DH and when we would tell our families. Ha!

    I also agree that your symptoms sound awesome!! I hope you get a BFP very soon!!

    I sooo hear that.. I could go broke, too. Because there just HAS to be a different result from one hour to the next. Lmao!!

    Ok I only bought two boxes worth.. Multi-packs.. But only 2 boxes! One box of 2 digitals and one box of 3 POAS.

    Never mind the 5 I bought at the dollar store yesterday and the 3 test strips left over from my online OPK combo pack.

    Oh ladies, even when I had in my IUD I still freaked out thinking that I might get pregnant. I would go crazy if i got sore boobs, or stomach muscle pains, then (because I never actually tracked my periods) I would think "man, its been a long time since I remember being on my period, better go POAS just in case"

    Though I didn't really want to be pregnant then, I still enjoyed POAS, for those three minutes I got to pretend I was maybe pregnant. Now that we are actually trying I am getting more and more excited.
