Does anyone have any suggestions here?
I am having a hard time in trying to focus on the here and now of "life as it is" in the TTC journey. Hating my work situation (but at this point in time, can't leave for obvious reasons). I have put a lot of my usual interests on hold because I don't want to plan something (expensive) that I potentially can't follow through with. That also includes things like holidays!
I waited until I was finished a lot of important things before we started TTC (a bit of a bucket list). Now they are all over and I am a bit lost, because I just though I'd be pg within a few months and then the rest of my life plans would magically fall into place!
I'm now realising that we could be TTC for ages and I'll be stuck in limbo land for goodness knows how long. It's really not doing my mental state any good!
I am seeing my GP for a health check up and physiological support for TTC, and a counsellor to work out some mental strategies. Being proactive is helping, but I am still struggling over not being able to control an outcome - even when trying really hard. We're only into our 5th month, but it feels like forever - especially when everyone around me seems to be having "oops" babies!
