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?

Baby Blues

Posted by: twick on Sun May 4, 2008

I hear you! I got pregnant in November and miscarried at week 10. It has now been four months of trying and nothing. Yet, everyone around me is getting pregnant, some of them while they are on the pill!!! A friend is reading "The Secret" and has told me that I have to think positive thoughts at all times and think as though I a pregnant. She even went as far to say that it is possible my negative thoughts caused me to miscarry in Jan. (I do not believe this.) I try to think happy thoughts but that is not always possible. I do watch my ovulation cycle and have started using a Basal Thermometer. I think/pretend that I conceive and am pregnant but when Aunt Flo shows up, it is devestation. I am 32 and spouse is 38, first time trying. I know I can get pregnant so I am confident it can happen again but now I worry I just can't carry a baby. Now everyone tells me we are just trying to hard to get pregnant. I say I am just trying to increase my chances.

What it boils down to is that, it doesn't matter how long you have been trying, one month or one year, when you finally make the decision to bring a child into this world and it isn't happening, it is hard to handle. You do think of all the unwanted babies in the world, all the malnourished and drugged out women that have babies, and it is just unfair.
