Anyone else TTC and terrified?

I am TTC but am properly freaking out about becoming pregnant, bit of a contradiction I know! Am terrified of the thought of having something grow inside of me, not being able to change my mind/undo/go back and having a complete mental breakdown for the entire 9 months.

But I really want to be a mum and am determined to beat this even though the fear is awful - I'm like "am I pregnant?" "am I not?" every test is intense fear and then disappointment when it's negative but also relief.

Is anyone else going through this?

If I stop and think about the enormous responsibility of bringing up a small person, then sometimes I feel a bit anxious. The pregnancy itself doesn't much scare me but then again, I fairly ok with the unknown in general. I can't be scared of an experience I've never experienced, if that makes any sense...well maybe it's just me smile

Not sure how, but maybe it's best to try not to overthink it. Stress is not good for you. There's so much help and information available. Woman have been doing this for centuries. I can only suggest that talking to people about there experiences will help. It's helped me a bit at least.

Thanks Dizzylemon, I know you're right. I have to learn not to overthink - just not sure how to switch it off!
