I am tired of worrying about it. Maybe a months break is a good thing. I've been putting too much pressure on myself to get pregnant, and am jealous of every pregnant woman I run into. DS is nursing like a fiend this month, which I think only makes it less likely that I could conceive. I get my hopes up so much, then feel devastated when AF comes around. I don't know, I still have a week before I ovulate. Do you ever take a break from trying? Or do you feel like you HAVE to try every month just in case?

oh yeah, we take breaks. I took almost this whole year off. The break really does me good.

Feel free to change your mind either way as often as you need to. All this ttc and --- gets draining.

I thought about taking this month off too.
But my sheer wanting a baby made me change my mind.

The only way to actually ttc is to do it so it feels right for you. Otherwise it is way more stressful than it needs to be.

Good luck and calm peaceful vibes to you!!
