    I am only only the 2nd month TTC but i have decided to break it into sections....

    1st week drink and be merry whilst have AF
    2nd week get as healthy as possible- get to gym- eat well!
    3rd week- BD as much as possible and OPK test twice daily
    4th week- get on here and symptom spot permanently!!!!
    5th week- pray AF doesn't turn up!!

    N.B i am on 33 day cycle hence the 5 weeks

    xx Good luck!

    I'm not even TTC yet and it's all I think about!! Whatever I'm doing I think how would this be different if I was pregnant/had a baby??!! I'm driving my husband crazy cos when I think these things I have to immediately tell him!!

    So yeah if anyone knows how to stop thinking about pregnacy / babies I'd like to know as I still have about 3 months to wait till we're TTC!! :(

    Just try and keep relaxed and enjoy yourself! Try and hold off on the research too, save yoruself something to read later! It can get too much quickly, so stay relaxed is my advice!!
    Good luck!

    this is my 23rd cycle, I wish I didn't obsess about this during the whole time. I now regret about all the holiday plans we didn't do in case I was pregnant. sigh..
    one advice I have is don't tell anyone you started TTC, it gets even worse when you try not to think about it but people keep asking if you had any luck.
    good luck xx

    OMG its so hard to keep yourself busy not thinking about it...i sometimes wish i could be put asleep till O date and BDing then be put back asleep again till 14DPO :dohh:

    Im getting serious paranoia mainly at work...me and the hubby have been married for just over a year now so maybe ppl just expect a baby is next on the bucket list. I had my colleague next to me ask if i was up the duff when i told him i had a secret!! (it was actually about someone being made redundant!). Then another colleague made a joke about a nice bar and said we would have to come back from my maternity drinks!!

    Its bad enough me obsessing without other ppl hinting too!!

    If you find a method that works please let me in on the secret lol! xx
