Attached to a pregnancy that might not even be?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My DH and I have been trying for a few months for baby #3, with no luck so far(but also getting my body back on track after Implanon removal). May was the first month since TTC that I successfully "caught" when I ovulated, and now, June 1st, the day I get to test, I'm scared to. I'm attached to the thought that it worked, I'm pregnant. Wishful thinking in the back of my mind as if I am pregnant, what a difference this pregnancy would be from the other two(extreme nausea from the get-go, and right now I have absolutely NO signs of pregnancy other than hope). 

I feel crazy being so attached to this thought, this pregnancy, birth, and baby that might not even be a reality! Am I alone on this or does anyone else ever feel this way?

I remember feeling so devastated after getting so many BFNs in a row that during the last one I started crying. I had been holding on to the thought that I was pregnant with such commitment that I felt like I had lost a baby, rather than just find out that there hadn't been one yet.

 

I bought a nice journal and started writing to my future child whenever I was feeling strong emotions about TTC - it sounds like something that might help you as well. You get the chance to write to the child you're waiting to meet and it'll be nice for them to read when they get older. They'll always have a record of how hard you worked for them before they were even born :)

 

Fingers crossed for a BFP!

I'm so glad I'm not alone on this! I tried talking to DH, but he didn't understand "We can just try again if you aren't...no biggie..." ahhh!

I LOVE that journal idea, I definitely think I'll do that(unless I get a BFP today, then pregnancy journal here we come winky.gif)

awesome! congrats!!!!

 

I'm 7 DPO and attached to this "possible" pregnancy as well. It's crazy. And I was talking to my sister and said something about "potential fetuses" and she just rolled her eyes at me (she's not exactly the maternal type). DH thinks I should for sure know by now and I keep telling him that it's too early to test and I won't test until next Tuesday (11DPO). I also know I won't wait that long to test. :)
