As a fellow lady TTC, don't drive yourself crazy!

I drove myself crazy for the first three months of trying, thinking every little thing my body was doing was a sign of pregnancy.

Honestly, it could be either one at this point.

My advice to you is, to avoid disappointment this month, wait until your period is 7 days late and then take a HPT.

Also, my doctor told me that 70% of healthy fertile couples conceive in 12 months of trying, so to expect 12 periods before a positive. This has helped a lot as I still hope that I do get a positive before than, but it's taken the pressure off.

Good luck! I hope it works out for you!
