Just wondering if anybody else lets their brain play tricks?

Ok, I am really trying not to stress (don't fell like I am actually). But, come o time EVERY month I think oh, I feel craming. But, do I really? Then about a week to a week and a half later I start thinking my breasts are sore. Then I try to verify (by poking or just touching) and of coarse they're not really. Does anybody else do this to themselves?

i do that too,lol, i think that my breats are sore and have symptoms then get myself confused and second guess when i ovualted thinking we missed it, and recalulate in my head dates, i am trying not to stress but i am! and right now my breasts hurt so bad i cant touch them and that is usually a few days before the dreaded a/f! then i poke around and think maybe they arent sore, and go through these crazy emotions.

I'm so glad it's not only me. I'm always wondering do I feel this or not. Then most pg symptoms can be explained away by something else. So, evertime I feel cramping (not during af) I think - I have to have a bm. I feel so stupid sometimes.

i am glad someone else feels this way, cause i thought i was loosing it with symptoms and babies on my brain all the time,lol....

Don't feel alone....I think my brain is trying to play nasty tricks on me every month with my symptoms.....My hubby thinks I have lost it at times

I'm so glad there are others out there like me. I'm the same way as well. Every month I pysche myself to thinking I'm feeling the symptoms (sore breasts, etc), then every month I get disappointed. I feel stupid at times as well.

Men do not understand! No matter how supportive. If I ask my hubby what he thinks our success rate was for the month he always tell me - you stress over it, don't stress and it will happen. I tell him just because I ask questions doesn't mean I stress. Good thing there are other women to discuss these issues with. :-)

Melissa, my husband says the same thing. Don't stress over it. It can be real annoying. Glad to see I'm not the only one

How funny! Men!

Of course we all do. I was trying to get pregnant for a year and I thought I had all kinds of symptoms every month. It turned out that when I really got pregnant I had no noticeable symptons and had no idea I was for a while. This vary from women to women, but in my case the only thing I had was I was tired and my breast were sore. But my breasts were ALWAYS sore right before my cycle anyway.

Yes I go thru the same time each month I have been trying. It gets annoying after awhile because you think your really pregnant this time and your not. Sometimes I get really stressed out about this.

Hi Patricia. When I was pg with my son I also didn't know I was until I got really sick one morning. Then I went in and the guy asked "well, are your boobs sore". I told him yes and that they always are that tender before af. I think he though I was stupid or something. But that we're actively trying for #2 I keep looking for all these signs.


Melissa - June 2

Chrissy I think I've been able to work past the severe depression of the bfn, but I still try to look for all the signs every month.


Drew - June 2

I cant even remember what signs to look for anymore... suddenly everything is a sign..... :0

haha! last month was my frist month off the pill and ttc.. I had all the "signs" and was sure I was pg, but of course it was just crazy hormones and a BFN. This month I have no signs and so I'm thinking that means I'm pg anyway! Man, this is crazy stuff ttc. I totally respect all of you who have been ttc for a while... it takes a strong person.


Melissa - June 3

Isn't it amazing to hear all kinds of other women say "I'm fertile mertile"? I mean we got pg right away with my son, but now ttc #2 for 6 months. You would think your body already knew what to do right? (I just rolled my eyes). :-)
