Hi ladies!!! I wanted to congratulate all the new preggos - even those with faint lines because "a line is a line is a line!" and send my biggest hugs to those who saw AF this month.<br><br>
I alos wanted to fill you in with my worked in progress on getting me mentally at peace so that I can conceive. I had "left" TTC a couple of months back. I couldn't take it anymore and my marriage didn't feel strong enough. We never really stopped but did a not not trying thing.<br><br>
Anyway, I wanted to share that I have recently made some major breakthroughs with why I have anger issues and why they have increased dramatically since dd was born almost 3 years ago. Just in case this helps anyone, my issues were fear of failure. Failure in parenting wrong, failure in choosing the wrong parenting technique, failures in being the right mom, wife, etc. and then on top of all of these self-made pressures, I was "failing" to conceive. What made it worse was "failing" in front of all of you.<br><br>
I won't go on in detail of how fear of failure has affected me my entire life or why that is, but I know some of you have had a tough road and thought if this rang true with anyone else, it might help them.<br><br>
My marriage is also in a much better place. With that, there were some other things going on, but we have worked through it.<br><br>
I haven't felt this good in a long time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bgbounce"> I am so proud of myself for figuring it out because now I can just figure out how to adjust my thinking. A tough thing to do , but now that I knwo what I am changing, it will be easier.<br><br>
I am not really back here yet. I feel ready to conceive but hesititate because the baby would be due a couple of months before dd starts preschool and I don't know if she could handle that. We are still in the thinking phase. I still check in on all of you though from lurk-dom.<br><br>
Good luck to everyone! May this be a fertile month for you all!!!

Hi Keri!<br><br>
It's so good to hear from you. It sounds like you're doing really really well. It sounds like a perfect time to conceive!<br><br>
I hope we'll see you around- or even better, we'll all see each other over at the Pregnancy board!

Hi Keri!<br><br>
Glad to see you!!!<br><br>
And also glad to hear that things are working themselves out. You sound like you have done a lot of work.<br><br>
I also took a break. Marraige issues and just being tired of "trying" and also failing every month. Dh and I are working things out slowly but surely...which is good.<br><br>
Amazing the issues that come up isn't it?<br><br>
Anyway, good luck and I hope to see you back here soon.
