Feeling angry when things don’t go to plan is a natural response. Don’t be hard on yourself, you may not like the way you are being and reacting but hormones have a big part to play. Often the only solution is to acknowledge it and move on.
It’s not uncommon for your partner to feel under great pressure when you are both trying for a baby and at times he may not react in the way you need him to, this may make you angry. As a result of these angry feelings you become irritable and frustrated.
I’m sure you have felt anger when:
• You’ve focused on planning things meticulously to heighten your chances of pregnancy and you plan falls apart
• You feel that your partner is not reacting as you would wish him to
• You’ve hear about others falling pregnant easily
• You hear again and again from your family ‘Just relax’
• You feel that trying to conceive is the biggest challenge you’ve encountered
• Every day is a struggle to be positive and happy
Please give yourself a break, anger may indicate there is suppressed emotion somewhere buried inside you and it may help to talk about it.
What can we do about it?
Being able to talk about how you feel when you know people are going through the same thing and can understand where you are coming from helps a lot. It helps to get perspective, especially when you are actually being overly emotional about things, sometimes you need someone to give you honest advice, even if it is uncomfortable to hear.
Focus on yourself, it’s not selfish, it’s necessary. Being all things to all people all the time, gets a bit much, you need time out.
Remember your team mate who is in this with you. Team work and communicating with your partner in a kind way is so important at this time
