TTC: How often do you feel frustration and blame about what you're going through? For me, frustration was an emotion that seemed to be ever present as we ttc'ed.

TTC: Anger. Feeling angry. Having angry thoughts. Hating what you're going through and who you think you've become. If you're on a ttc journey it is very likely that you will have come up against anger. I have. For me it appeared after shock and before sadness and I hated feeling that way, but it was [...]

TTC: How many times have you told yourself "I'll be happy when ...

TTC: How do you bring more joy into your life as you ttc? I don't know about you, but for me, joy was about as far as possible away from how I lived, as I traversed the messy world of natural fertility and fertility treatments. But finding joy as you ttc couldn't be more important. Joy [...]

TTC: When you're stressed do you notice that you're thinking negatively, or has it become so routine to think this way, that you don't even notice?

TTC: How do you reframe negative thinking? If you've had a bad day, what do you focus on at the end of it? The stories that we tell ourselves as we ttc define us. They determine our self worth, how we see the world, and how we feel the world treats us. When the day hasn't [...]
