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?

Keeping the faith

Posted by: Babs2524 on Sun Jan 18, 2009

I've just lost my second baby since June 2008. Yesterday was the due date of the first baby and last week I had to visit the maternity ward to have my rhogam shot as I was losing the 2nd baby. I'm 39 years old and have been trying to get pregnant for 16 months. I have a 13 year old daughter who only took one try to conceive (albeit with a different partner and I was MUCH younger) but this "infertility" thing came as a total shock! We saw a fertility specialist this week so at least there feels like there's a plan for moving forward which is helping the grief enormously but this week, as I've finally been having the miscarriage I've known was coming for 5 weeks, the hormonal mood swings and crying jags have been trying and awkward when they hit me clear out of left field. All I can do is stay positive and keep praying that sooner than later this will come together for us as my husband does not have any children of his own, and think of how much sweeter the joy will be when our child finally does arrive...Keep the faith everyone.
