the mental game of ttc
Does it affect you? How? What crazy things do you do, or do you try to stop yourself from doing? Or are you one of those people who can just put it in the back of your mind?

It depends what I have going on in my life. If I am busy, then time flies. If I am not, the 2 weeks drag on forever and I go crazy. I try to keep busy and not think about it.

Most of the time I can put it in the background. It gets to me when it's time to DTD and then test... I worry -- did I do it enough, right time, all of that.... oh, and I worry about -- did I O and when... and I worry about it when I am on TBC and thinking babies all the time!!! :lol:

The mental game of ttc is the hardest part for me. The worst part is reading the opk, and then also the 2 weeks of waiting. The time gearing up to the opk isn't too bad, because i feel like I'm "doing something" in support of the cause. The 2 weeks of just waiting are the hardest. In thinking about it, I think I'm going to plan some big activities for the kids and I just to keep my mind off things.

I loved the cycle i did injectibles because all the thinking was done for you. They drew your blood, did u/s to see when you o'ed, and decided for you when you would have the iui. Of course it worked so that helped too.
