Does anyone else feel like this?(7 Posts)
Ok, so it may be the hormones. It may be the dreaded 2ww which I am now 1 week into after round 5 of IUI (2 mc). However, since all this started, in general I would rather lie in bed than do pretty much anything else! I manage to get up, get DD up and ready, go to work, do my work well but I get home, put my pjs on and the thought of anything else makes me feel like it's just all a bit too much.
Can't book many things in advance because I never know where I might be in a cycle or whether I might be pg so a holiday is out of the question. Don't really want to hang out with many people because I have this general feeling that being in bed chilling out is actually what I want to do! I'm not depressed, I feel like I am processing everything ok. I just want to be in bed all the time!
I feel the same a lot of the time. I just want to avoid life because the pressure of TTC feels overwhelming and I need some chill out time where I don't think about it i,e TV and pyjamas! Also TTC long term can make you feel quite isolated, yoiur life isn't moving forward in the way you'd hoped etc.
Socialising becomes difficult because usually your TTC troubles are not shared (for me anyway) so it becomes increasingly more difficult to connect with people because its as if you have 2 lives. You might be different and be open with people about it but whichever way its a tough road so don't give yourself a hard time. I'm sure there's lots of us feel the same way!
Its good to persuade yourself to have projects as it makes you feel better about yourself and not so focussed on TTC but its totally OK to allow yourself down time too. Perfectly normal in crappy circumstances I'd say!
Good luck in the rest of your tww, I hope you have a good outcome :-)
I'm so glad you posted this. I know exactly how you feel! Well, sort of. In the evenings I find myself just wanting to watch trash on TV but in the morning/day I just want my bed!
Good to know I'm not the only one! Managed a night out this week, was lovely but would still prefer my bed! I'd just so love to book a holiday to look forward to, I guess I'll save my pennies to have one big holiday when this is all over.
I guess I just didn't realise what a long flipping haul this could be.
I have never stopped booking holidays through my ttc journey, and I'm glad I didn't. it's been almost 3 years and in that time I've lost my job, started a business, been abroad 4 times. I've also become an aunty twice so I needed the holidays!!
