Trying to conceive

Afree years of wanting a baby it's finally the right time, so we decided to start TTC in March. We are both pretty healthy and three separate people have said to me "I recon it won't take you two long"- which has put the pressure on! We have quit booze and caffeine totally and are on the supplements. I took ovulation tests around the time I was meant to be ovulating and they all came back negative which stressed me out. I did have the egg white mucus and then the slippery type the next day (sorry to be graphic). We had sex on both of those days and a couple of times leading up to those days. Since then I havnt felt any different at all (no sore boobs, itchy nipples, bloating). I really don't *feel* pregnant so I am expecting to come on my period this thurs when I'm due. I am dreading Thursday as it will confirm that I'm not pregnant. I know I sound ridiculous and mad because I've only been TTC for one month. I don't see how I'm going to make this experience a nice and positive one of I'm already obsessed. Think it's because I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to my body and I hate feeling like I'm failing at something. I dont want to let my husband down each month. Does anyone have any pointers on how to get a grip and stop being hard on myself?? Xxx

me and my Husband have been having people hint and ask about us having a baby since we got married. everyone close to us knows we want children but we don't discuss it with them it's between us. If someone asks I say oh one day When the time is right - just answer vaguely. I find this helps.
im a planner too and hate not being in control. But there is no choice it will happen at some point

We've been trying since the start of the year after a mc last October. I'm trying to distract myself as much as possible hence have recently booked a holiday and rediscovered my sewing machine! I have also resisted using opks, fertility apps etc as I think I'd get too obsessed.
I've seen a fair few people on here saying they fell pregnant as soon as they relaxed and stopped trying so hard. Also, when I fell pregnant last year my symptoms didn't start until later on, so just because you don't 'feel' pregnant already doesn't necessarily mean you're not! Good luck xx

You are not alone. I've recently become obsessed with having a baby. I take care of children for a living so this makes it even harder for me. People are constantly telling me how wonderful I am with their children and ask me why I don't have any. I tell people we are not ready for children because I dont want them to know how I really feel.

your not alone I have also become obsessed with trying to have a baby! My fiancé and I have also been trying for a little over a month and it's gotten really bad BBT all the time, test after test BFN after BFN. Like really obssessed, Ive even started to think something is wrong with us like why is this not happeneing as fast as other couples. But recently I've decided to just relax and try to calm down, when it happens it'll happen & hopefully this will be soon for all of us ! Baby dust everyone's way :)
