TTC and stress

I read an interesting article last night that showed the correlation between stress and failed implantation. They said that many women actively trying to conceive have a harder time implanting due to stressing out about becoming pregnant. All of the symptom spotting, thinking about motherhood, research, googling, etc creates a stressful environment inside of us and the uterine lining doesn’t become a healthy atmosphere for the blastocyst. I agree with everything I read, but it is still so hard to not think about it. It’s hard not to symptom spot. I wish I was mentally stronger than that. I’m sure the weather makes it harder also. I just spend so much time cooped up inside with nothing but my thoughts.

I have heard this as well, but for me it is impossible not to stress and symptom spot. I start a new job Monday and am so thankful that will keep me busy.

It has gotten easier to stop symptom spotting as more unsuccessful cycles pile up behind me. I’d had many cycles of boobs that didn’t lie or tiredness that must be from a life trying to take root inside, and on and on. The average woman simply doesn’t get symptoms before implantation when the hcg starts pumping. I know there are many who claim they do and I don’t dispute it. I also know that if you pick any symptom and add “early pregnancy symptom” next to it, you’re going to get a ton of hits of women who swear their first sign of pregnancy was that ringing in their ears or a twitching eye or whatever ridiculous thing.

As far as being mentally strong, never doubt that you are. You’d have to be doing this TTC thing.
