Obsessive about pregnancy!

Hi - some advice needed to confirm I'm not insane!
Newly married, 25 and diagnosed with endometriosis last year.
Always adamant we weren't having children until I was at least 30.. But since getting married I've become like a crazy lady - it's all I think about, dream about, all the time.
In recent months my endometriosis has become a daily struggle to control the pain so I'm not sure whether it is that that is pushing me more towards having children sooner? I had to come off all contraceptive hormones in August because of it too!
It doesn't help that my OH is very anti children at the moment - if I were to be pregnant, it would cause a huge divide.

Is this normal, or am I just broody? Broody way before and way worse than I ever thought I would be?
Help!

Oh this brings back memories! I was all "yeah yeah... we'll wait a bit for kids...blah blah blah" pre marriage. As soon as that ring was on my finger I turned into crazy lady. "why won't you just give me your seed?" was the pinnacle of my most memorable outburst. Seriously my husband is very understanding and it didn't cause an issue (ever though he did not want kids so soon) and we started trying... which took 6 months. Mainly because we couldn't get the dates right. I did charts...went as far as testing my mucus... everything possible to get the dates right to get pregnant. It was normal for me to be crazy and I think, with the added complication of endometriosis (which is horrid), you're totally within normal too. Didn't the doctors tell you that the best thing for it was to get pregnant? That was advice I have heard a few times now. Don't worry - indulge your inner crazy and buy all the books, research it all online and chart it all out if that's your thing. Just keep the charts etc out of sight of husband. It seems to put them off their performance for some reason!

See, my husband is so anti he used the phrase "it would ruin my life"... So maybe crying and charting my ovulation wouldnt go down so well....? Haha

The endometriosis is a daily struggle at the moment, so that doesn't help me... Combined with the fact I'm nauseous, bloated, tender boobs - touching them makes me feel sick - vivid, vivid dreams, increased discharge and no signs of AF on day 32... Is panicking me.
I only came off my pill in August and since have had cycles of 35 days and 52 days... I'm all over the place. Tested on 22nd - BFN. So how long do I leave it?
