Staying optimistic when trying to conceive / get pregnant – I share the same thoughts and feelings


Thank you to the woman who posted this, you are not alone. I can relate to this post. I often get thoughts like “I am in my 40s, am I fertile enough to conceive? Will he be in the mood when I am ovulating, what happens if we try and I can’t get pregnant?” I can see how I cause myself stress and anxiety having these thoughts. And it also doesn’t help when people constantly remind me that I need to start trying because of my age! (yeah, I already know this, thanks!) Can you offer any bridge thoughts or ladder thoughts that can help women like us to practice a new thought that’s believable to us?
