Velveteen, I feel for you. I'll be 43 this year and we've been ttc for a loooong time. (2 1/2 years before I got preg. and miscarried last year.) I go through periods where I wonder if I should keep trying or not--what hopeful said,
"Sometimes I feel that I'm letting time slip by even faster by obsessing about a baby and not just relaxing and enjoying my forties and the independance that I have."
is EXACTLY how I've felt. But then I try and figure out exactly HOW I'd go about not trying...how do you ignore the signs your body gives that O is imminent? How do you stop being hopeful? Or disappointed? I'm not sure...I guess the only way, for me, would be to start using birth control, which seems laughable, considering, yk?
So, I have no answers...I sometimes think it would be easier to give up hope, but I'm not sure how that's done. Mostly, I find I'm in the "giving up" mood when I'm pmsing, then once my next cycle starts, I'm full of renewed hope.
Anyone else find their optimism/despair fluctuates with their hormones?
