Too Much Information

It's been a while, but I had one of those nights again - too much time on the web reading about Infertility. The gals on FF are wonderful but I come away from these support groups more stressed than I should be. Continuously reading about treatment failures and what-ifs is not the best medicine for me. This last month I took off of TTC it was a happy month. I also took off from the web (except for blogs - why do blogs feel happier?) Aside from the support groups, I can get lost in medical journals and reports about negative things. Enough of that. I know better.

When I goto the doc now I don't ask for my levels. This past U/S the doc asked me why I didn't look at the screen? "What can I do about those blobs?" Sure I like the info and I'll post some of it here as I move along this cycle for my journal's sake. But really, if my levels are such and such and my sacs are such and such, then that's that.

Letting Go.

please don't drive yourself crazy reading too much. Focus your attention only on the positive stuff. You know how our brains have power over the body, so surround yourself with positivity. Happy endings, supportive thoughts, etc. Of course there are things that can go wrong, we are taking risks choosing this path too, but concentrating on the goal and on everything working out is not denial, it's a smart thing to do right now.
Take good care of yourself, watch comedies, read things that make you feel good. It's your journey make it the best you can.

Good point about the u/s... you worrying & stressing over the numbers will only make it worse for you. There's really nothing more that we can do other than the protocal they set up. Hmm... I will definitely keep this in mind when we start our monitoring for this cycle.

Thanks for the comment on my blog... you make a very valid point & I laughed about it! $11 shoes can't be expected to be that great, but oh, well! :) They were cute! LOL

That's the problem now - we know too much. I used to think all I needed to do was get pregnant. Now I know there is so much more than that.

**HUGS**

You can drive yourself crazy so easily, especially if you start comparing your numbers to others and consulting Dr. Google has its downside too!

I am happy you are stimming and underway! Our dates are really close! Glad I found you on cycle sistas, thanks for stopping by my blog!

GL!

It's so true! The more I google, the more sites I visit, the more wigged out I get. I'm trying to take a similar approach: just one day at a time. Focus on today, not about the "what if's" of tomorrow.

You are SOOO right. For months, I didn't read IF blogs because they stressed me out.

And of course, I had a nightmare after watching injection videos on youtube. So then I stopped LOL
