im thinking of giving up trying for a while tbh, its driving me insane, everywhere i look i see babies, or baby stuff, and every month im devastated, i cant keep setting myself up for fail, i dont know why im so obsessed with it!

I was like that last week and i started reading some articles. One of them advised to take a break. The problem is that I get extra spotting 1 week after ovulation so I am charting everything to take bac to my doc, therefore I feel like I can't "forget". I suggested to my hubby to take a break and he agreed, he doesn't want us to use contraceptives just stop planning it, but I feel like my mind would totally rest if we use condoms for 1-2 months. I feel like if I know there might be a chance to get pregnant I start feeling symptoms and obsessing too!
Another thing the article said (I am linking it below) is to go back to the things you used to love. I used to be a happy person before ttc so why is this taking away my happiness? I made a list of things and places to do/go and I am scheduling dinners and coffee time with friends, cos that's one of the things I love to do.
Here's a good artcile, hope it helps! http://infertility.about.com/od/copingwithinfertility/a/10-Ways-To-Cope-When-Trying-To-Get-Pregnant-Overwhelms-You.htm
