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?

Trying for 3 years...FRUSTRATED!!!

Posted by: Kerrie2006 on Tue Jul 15, 2008

I have been using MyMonthlyCycles for over 2 years now but this is the first time I have been on this message board. I was SURPRISED to see I was not alone not only in my problem but also in how I have been feeling.

I have been married for almost 11 years and have been TTC for almost 3 years. We did get pregnant back in Nov of 06 but I miscarried a few days before Christmas of 06. Ectopic pregnancy they called it. I had to have one fallopian tube removed. We have been TRYING hardcore ever since. We tried sex every other day not knowing when I was ovulating. Finally broke down and tried the ovulation kits which we have been using for a little less than a year now. Nothing. My husband and I are getting so frustrated that it is beginning to affect our marriage.

To make matters worse... My cousin just had a baby on June 26th. Funny thing is, SHE DIDNT EVEN KNOW SHE WAS PREGNANT!!! I was up there just before they diagnosed her and was shocked when I found out. I was shocked, happy, and then immediately became jealous and very upset. I have been trying for 3 years now; she doesn?t try and gets the job done. I want children so incredibly bad; she had no desire to have children. In the scheme of things.... HOW IS THIS FAIR??? Don't get me wrong. I love my cousin and I am incredibly happy for her and she is extremely lucky to have had a beautiful HEALTHY baby boy, but I still can't help to be jealous.

I see my Doctor on July 22nd. I have read several of these posts and have come up with questions about drugs, shots, procedures, that I had no idea existed that I plan on asking my DR about... Is there anything you think I should be asking? After 3 years of trying and what seems to be endless frustration I hope this is just the beginning and not the end... Please help. If you think there is anything I should be asking about, drugs, procedures, anything... I honestly don?t know what to ask her other then.... WHY AM I NOT GETTING PREGANT AND WHAT CAN I DO TO CHANGE THAT?
