Hi - anyone crazy yet?!

Postby Sen » Tue Jun 25, 2013 11:13 am

Just dropping in to say hello to all the long time ttc'vers.
Never thought (as we all did) I'd end up still childless after a year!

Rough old journey isn't it girls?!

How do you all keep yourself from going insane and what has been your craziest moment to date?

Mine - smashing a glass pickle jar through my ceramic hob in December.
DP spent hours cleaning up the floors, ceiling, walls..... :rofl:

I'm barely hanging in there today. Tomorrow will hopefully be better. At this point honestly, I just let the crazy out. The quicker I do or say whatever irrational thing I am thinking, the better. This typically involves either yelling at my husband irrationally, or throwing things.

All in all, I am about at the end of my rope with all this s**t. 7 years is way too damn long at this point.

Rad - I feel your pain, I really do. 7 years is a heartbreaker.

I have bewn ttc #2 for almost 5 yrs. I do have a dd soI ccan't be as irrational as I want to be. When af arrives I either want to lock myself in my room for days or throw stuff. Unfortunately with dd I can't do either. I say the best thing to do is lwt the crazy out. I keep mine all bottled up and then get depressed. So throw stuff holler scream etc. Its way healthier than keeping it all bottled up.

I'm beyond crazy and moved on to zen reality. Either ivf will work for us or it won't! We do what we can and the rest is out of our control...that's the hardest part...relinquishing control.

Best wishes,

OMG I feel exactly the same! We been ttc#1 for over a year and I am so fed up with being asked "when are you going to have a baby now your married" been married 18 months and these comments started on my actual wedding day!!!! Yesterday someone actually asked me "why are you leaving it so long before having children, do you want to focus on your career?" AAAAARRRHHH feel like screaming at these people " have you ever stopped to wonder, you ur thoughtful, insensitive people that I am trying to have a baby, I have been for over a year, I want a baby more than anything and your comments break my heart" .... But instead I smile and say "mmmmm maybe in the future, I'm only young yet" :(
Me - 28yrs
Dh - 29yrs

Ttc #1 for over 3 years with MFI

1st IVF cycle in June 2014 was negative. 3 frozen blasts

Hahaha zen reality! I am soooo in the zen reality stage!! 8 years TTC and I've completely and utterly gotten all the crazy lady heartbreak out of my system. I've cried enough over the last 8 years to last a lifetime and now am in the zen zone of whatever happens happens. It's a much better place to be but I sincerely hope you ladies all get your BFPs and don't join me there.
