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?

Conception Frustrations?

6 months, depressed already.

DH and I married 3 yrs, trying for 6 months on #1. I'm 28, he's 30. I use ovulation test strips monthly so I'm always sure of my OV date. I have a 12 day luteal phase, yet I can't help but wonder why it hasn't happened yet. I'm already thinking that there is something wrong with either me or my husband. Is it too soon for me to be thinking that? Sometimes, I even wonder if this is punishment for me being who I am - for not being the better person that I could be. I get depressed every month as soon as I test negative. I just need a place to vent my frustrations... Thanks ladies.

Frustrated and Sad

We've been TTC since October as well, and the frustrations are getting to me as well! My OB just put me on Clomid, and I found out this morning that it did not work this month. I wish she would just increase the dosage to the max so it would work in one month! We're tired of waiting... We have the house, the jobs that give us plenty of free time, the cars, college funds... we are ready! All we need is the family:( Any tips for distraction much appreciated! Please somebody, tell me a story with a happy ending:)

12 months and counting.....

We stopped our birth control a year ago and naively hed to become pregnant straight away, how wrong could we have been??!!

12 months on and still no pregnancy, my partner has had his fertility tests and they came back normal, so now it is my turn to start the tests....

I am still hoping that we will conceive naturally and as I am in my fertile stage now, this month may be the month....

Anybody else in the same boat???

Frustration to depression

I've always being a little chubby around my belly area. So I look pregnant even if I'm not. But people comes over and congratulate me and it's so hard to tell them that I'm not.

Me and my husband being married for 2 years, but dating for 9 years. We've been TTC for about 2 1/2 years. I've had 1 MC at 2 months. Being on 6 months of Clomid.

My doctors have told me there is nothing wrong with me. I've done xrays, multiple blood work, scans, and medication. All normal. All of my friends are having babies left and right. But we can't even have one. It's so frustrated and depressing at times when I see TV shows or a commercial holding a crying baby in their arms, I'll start crying too. It's not fair!

Too painful to be around pregnant people

We have only been TTC since October but the frustration has really got to me and I am so worried that we are getting too old and time is slipping away. My sister and sisters in law are all pregnant and I just cannot bear to be around them. I just think how happy they must be and I feel so miserable and empty and so bad for feeling like that when I should be pleased for them. DH does not understand and the other day set up a visit to his sister so she could talk to me. I just found out and I am so mad with him. I think he thinks I am mad - am I? I feel so terrible I just want to avoid all pregnant people - and suddenly they seem to be everywhere!
