help, all I seem to be able to think of at the moment is getting pregnant! Anyone got any ideas for keeping me from going completely gaga!

Me too, trying to keep busy but it is the school holidays so I have a lovely 6 weeks off, finding it hard to fill my time (the house has been cleaned-including windows, skirting boards and every cupboard and the gardening done).Doesn't help that friends have announced 2 pregnancies this week and one had a gorgeous baby boy yesterday- so todays task is going to be shopping for a present for him- not sure that is really a distraction! have another 7 days to wait for AF and not even thiking of testing before then, but really don't feel it has happened this month so having wat af to hurry up so I can start all over again!!! If I find a magical distraction techique I will let you know.

this may help

I've just bought a new bike and hopefully cycyling and getting fit / thin will help me.

yup me too. trying for 3 months and am now insane (charting even tho i promised i wouldn't etc)

i'm usually a 24 day cycle girl but i am on day 27 and am just trying to get thru today before i test.

Nothing to do at work so reading all the threads on MN to distract me.

We started TTC in Jan and i can honestly say i became obsessed, i probably thought about pregnant so much i forgot to have sex (duh)

My periods then stopped in Feb due to exam stress and i honestly think too much time on knicker watch. My AF returned in July and i feel a lot more relaxed about it now although coming on MN daily means im thinking of it daily im not as obsessed. I still find it hard to see pregnant women though and wonder how old they are and how long they were TTC.

No idea...because I don't seem to be able to think about much else either, even though for me/us it would be absolutely ridiculous timing. Thing is, at 43 I really don't have that much time to keep fannying about, so to speak!

AND I have a friend who produced a gorgeous baby in January and the first time I held him I knew I was in trouble!

Same here montymum I am not working so that gives me more time to think. I am actually looking forward to AF arriving so that I can start the next stage! DH is home this week too so topic of conversation turns to TTC! Friends and family don't know so on here is the only place I can chat about it freely;)
