Conception Frustrations?
If you're trying to conceive and it's taking longer than you had hoped, what frustrations are you running into? Is it that just about everyone around you seems to be pregnant? Or, something someone said? Or, is you-know-who (your mom, his mom...) pressuring you or asking when way too often? Does it sometimes feel like TTC is more like Trying to Cope?

New to TTC

Posted by: Marcelia on Tue Aug 14, 2007

I'm 22 years old, and married to a wonderful man for 2+ years now, and though it doesn't seem that old, I'm well beyond any person my own age. I grew up fast, and have over come a lot of obstacles. I didn't realize that TTC would be such an obstacle. We have been TTC since the first week in May. I thought once we decided to try that it would just happen. You see all those pregnant teens and young women around who aren't actively trying, who end up pregnant, and you just think that the first or second or even third time will be the charm. Then you decided to take the plunge, to make a life changing decision and it's more difficult then ever imagined.

What's worse is I don't have anyone really to confide in. My husband wants to keep it private so to talk to friends and family would be to go against his wishes. And, lets face it men just don't seem to understand the female frustrations. To top everything off his mom, likes to keep pushing, "when are you going to have a baby" "I need a grand-baby!"

It's all so frustrating.

I am not aware of any medical history to keep us from conceiving. I didn't come from a good family, so getting history is out of the question. The only thing my gyno told me was that I had an inverted uterus and when I asked if it would cause difficulties she said no. We recently moved to MS...well maybe not so recent. It was the last week in March. And since the move my periods haven't been right at all! And I am so regular you can use me as a stop watch. I wasn't even this irregular when I first started my cycle. It's just aggravating, being told nothing is wrong, and yet your body is all out of whack.

If anyone can relate, please share your story~
