Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

just a little thought

Actually, I got my beautiful BFP a while ago and I’m currently 8 months pregnant. And I’m here simply to share a little thought about TTC, one that I would have liked to have more clarity about when I first started this whole process. Because it seems to me that there is too much anxiety going on in a lot of people who start TTC. At least that was my case: I started out already feeling nervous, already thinking of everything that could possibly go wrong.

My current pregnancy happened after 6 cycles, including one miscarriage. The miscarriage happened on the third cycle, at which point I *really* freaked out and started thinking it would never happen… But then two cycles later, there it was, my beautiful little one.

What I want to say is just this: I wish I would have worried less at the start. While there are obviously, and unfortunately, many women for whom it does not work out, for many others it actually does happen at some point. And I believe I could have started out more lightly, worrying less and taking it easy, instead of freaking out before I had any reasons to actually freak out. In my view, worries, if they are to come, should come later, but not so early on. I wish I would have started this process more hopeful and less worried. Because none of the worries made sense at such an early point… I know that what I am saying is not new or original. But I want to share it anyway, in case it might be helpful for anyone out there, and also because it's generally good to remind myself not to worry so much about stuff in general.

I send you all my best wishes in this journey!
