TTC is so difficult

Postby Jodie86 » Tue Jul 24, 2018 6:31 pm

Hi All,
I have been trying to concieve for almost a year.I never expected it to be this difficult.So often I feel like I feel cramps etc which I associate with pregnancy as I never had sore periods.Alot of months I have myself convinced I'm pregnant but usually my period arrives on time or a couple of days late.This month my period was 15 days late,when my period was due I had my usual period signs on the days it was due like cramping so I really had myself convinced and had felt stretching,etc along with being extremely fatigued which is not usually like me.Yesterday I had quite bad cramps and dizziness and woke up this morning to my period which quite heavy.does anyone else feel trying to concieve really messes with your head.I am doing the ovulation tests and not sure what else I can do.My husband is disappointed but I am the one who convinces myself it's happened despite the fact that I try to be as chilled as possible.Can anyone relate,I feel like it messes with my head.

Absolutely Jodie it's an absolute head melt. If you follow any of the trains here you'll find so many ladies in the same boat. It's been such a challenge - mentally more than anything.

You should join the August train and we can all help you through it :)

Jodie I wish i had some advice but I can tell you that your feelings are completely normal and what helps me is sharing stories with the other girls on these trains and knowing that there are others n the same boat.

Like msa says u should join the August train, all the girls here are lovely, and u can say absolutely anything here x

Thanks girls honestly feel like I'm loosing my mind at times and so sad to see so many ladies going through the same. These are the things that nobody tells you.It doesn't help that everywhere you go you listen to idiots questioning you about why your waiting so long to get pregnant.Honestly drives me mad.But I've joined the August trained and hopefully it's a positive one for us all.Thanks girls it's lovely to get a response from you ,thank you x
