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?

ttc with PCOS

I'm also in the same boat as some of you ladies. I have a 2yr old daughter and my hubby and I have been ttc since july. I haven't been able to concieve and was later diagnosed with PCOS. For anyone out there suffering with pcos is surgery or clomid one of your few options for trying to get pregnant? If so do you know if clomid is covered by insurance or is it out of pocket? Good luck to all of you and I'll be praying that God blesses you with a baby.

One ovary

Hey, I also only have one ovary! It is very frustrating. My husband and I have been trying since October but it's getting annoying because it seems to take the "fun" out of sex. Do you ever have people tell you that your ovary only ovulates every other month? I get so frustrated by that.

Glad to know I'm not alone!

Thank you to all who have shared their hardships! My husband and I have been married for just over 5 years now, and have been pretty much TTC the entire time. I've had tests and he's had tests. Everything is fine, with the exception that I only seem to have one ovary, which isn't the end of the world either. I am with everyone who is frustrated and trying so hard to be happy for those around us that are pregnant so easily (or seemingly, after just a few months!). I keep trying to have faith that it will happen someday, insha'Allah (God-willing). Sometimes, I wonder if I should just accept that it may never happen. It's terribly confusing when you have pre-menstrual symptoms that are soooo close to pregnancy symptoms! Now, I typically don't even bother to test, because I figure I will be getting my period as usual anyway! Anyway, I'm praying for myself and everyone else having trouble :-)

All in the same boat

I am glad I am not the only one. It took 1 1/2 years to conceive our daughter. She is the light of our life and dont want to seem selfish but we want her to have a sibling in the worst way. We have been ttc for the last 7 months. In December I was diagnosed with PCOS I had a surgry done to repair part of my uterus. And last month we did a round of Clomid and HCG shot. But due to finance we can not continue down that road any longer. So it is back to charting and strick diet to hope we can have another baby. My friend just emailed me she is due with twins in September her youngest will be one in May. It is so hard to be happy for her when all you want to do is scream. For me it is even more frustrating I work with very low income clients and they can barely take care of their children and are about to bring another one into the world. Luckily my inlaws no longer ask when we are going to have another one. Hang in there ladies... stress doesnt help the process any!!!

Frustrated!

My husband and I have been TTC for over two years now. We have both had fertility tests and we are both absolutley fine but I am so confused about how to feel, I feel like I am living a double life. Half of me is positive and still enjoying life and half of me is jealous and angry. I get so sick of having to revel in everyone elses joy and hearing others say how miserable they are as they have been trying for 6 months for their second or third child!! I wish! I wish I had at least one baby, I wish I had experienced that joy even once. In my opinion those people are ungrateful, selfish and clueless. Nobody I know seems to understand and I don't want my relationship to suffer so I tend to keep all my feelings to myself. I put on a smile and when people say "do you not want children?" I say casually "yeah one day". I want to scream and shout and say it's not fair. As negative as it sounds I really do try to stay focused and am trying everything I can to stay healthy and happy, but does anyone else out there feel half as frustrated as me?? xx
