Estimation pendulum

Have you ever noticed your estimation patterns between iterations/sprints?
Something that I have found on the last couple of teams, during some iteration/sprint the team‘s estimates are very optimistic and they have a significant amount of stories in the hang over state. In the next planning meeting, the estimates are very pessimistic and the team ends up finishing more than what they signed up for. And somehow it‘s very difficult to balance this oscillation.

Are we getting too reactive in our planning and estimation?
