Any tips on how to handle pressure when TTC. When friends tagging you with their baby pics, when people started to ask if you are already pregnant like you owe them money and asking when are you going to pay, when somebody says they know someone who waited to conceive and when the right time comes they can not, or words like do this, do that...when you just started to TTC

Find a channel for venting. Talk to someone, write in a journal, blog about it, write in this forum, just get it out of your system. Something I try to keep in mind - and don't always succeed at - is that other people's successful pregnancies and gorgeous babies are not a personal attack on me. If I'm happy and supportive of my pregnant friends (even though some days I want to snap at them) then they'll be there for me when it's my time!
