Why so much stress

I wonder why we put so much stress on ourselves to get pregnant, it really begins to become an obsession with some of us, I went to the doctor and everything is good. had the mirena taken out about two months ago, and was on Yaz for about a month and then hubby told me to leave the pill, doctor says we shouldn't battle because I wasn't long enough on the pill and it was such a light pill, we've been trying for two weeks now and it already feels to me as if "why cant I just get pregnant now" haha. oh man its such a big thing for us women.

      I believe it's because it's the one thing (or one of the big things) we want most in this world. We want to hold that sweet new baby in our arms, and say to ourselves, "This is ours. We made this."
      I wanted a baby so bad, I would have to avoid the baby section in stores because it made me depressed--which was difficult because I would end up there anyway. I would cry to myself in the bathroom stalls at work, silently; I'd become sad when I would see a baby. And when it was that time of month again, and I didn't miss, oh dear.
      It was awful. So, I just went to God in prayer. Even for those who don't pray, meditation is helpful in relieving stress.
      I am not an expert, but I believe stress can play a big factor in blocking conception.
      Of course, I want another one, and I am disappointed when a test reads negative. But, I am trying not to stress about it because I do want my son to be at least a year old.

      I believe your time will come, just try to relax. :)

      Melissa that is so true, I just said to my sister this morning its so difficult to not think about it because its the one thing you want the most in your life, and especially when both your husband and you are ready for the big step, I actually shouldn't even be talking because we've only been trying for two weeks but I try to block it off totally and not think about it, I also believe my time will come, will just try to sit back and relax ;)

      Still, two weeks can seem like two years. I understand that feeling.

        I get it... I think we are "programmed" that way biologically, but man is it counter-intuitive! We need to just relax and let it happen (or so I'm told, lol!)
