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?

Am I the Only one?

I've been reading all of the "TTC Frustration" Story's and I'm shocked at how they all seem like they are coming from me.

I'm 24 and My Husband is 22, we were married on Valentine's Day 2007 and have been trying since March 07 so we've been trying just 2 months shy of 2 years...

My husband is in college and has 8 months left until he graduates so we can't afford Fertility Doctors and Meds.

I've Charted, I've used Ovulation Predictor kits, I've tried the BBT charting, I've tried "Not trying" but nothing is working. I'm getting frustrated and depressed about it. My husband seems just fine and it never bothers him, and when i show that it bothers me, he gets upset.

It's Got so bad that i had a emotional break down when i found out my husband's cousin was pregnant. I threw all my baby magazines and everything baby related in a box (while bawling my eyes out) and put it in my closet so i couldn't see it anymore. Last Sunday night at our church a women who goes there brought her new born baby girl to church. I did the best i could to be strong, but the paster was talking about what a blessing she was and all this stuff through out his sermon so it got very hard not to cry, then at the end of the service I felt like was going to break down in front of everyone if i didn't get out of there right then, so i rushed out before anyone had the chance to shake my hand. My husband got very upset at me and tells me i need to stop acting like a child, and that i won't get pregnant until I "grow up"

I geuss I thought i was the only one that took TTC so hard, Am I being childish and immature for reacting so badly to babies and pregnant women? It just...hurts so bad.

TTC for 17 months now

My husband and i got pregnant after only TTC for a month, we lost the baby after only 8wks. I havn't ovulated since then, that was 17 months ago. My Dr. is trying me out on some new medication which seems to be balancing out my hormones, but it's also making my hair fall out. I've unofficially been diagnosed with PCOS. To make matters just a little worse my brother and his wife and my oldest sister, and my best friend and his wife just announced that they're all expecting. I wanna be happy for them, but it just makes things hurt that much more. I can't help but to feel like I'm broken, or not whole....still trying to be patient and understand but am slowly loosing hope.

My husband and I married when we were both 32 years old. We conceived right away, but I miscarried 3 months in. He has 3 children from another marriage, but I don't have any of my own. It has been 1 year and 10 months since the miscarriage. I am now 34 and very discouraged. Every month I time things right and start to feel hopeful, but start my period right on time. We can't afford fertility doctors and meds, so we just have to keep trying. My period should start any time and I will be late in 3 days. Maybe..., but then again this has been happening for almost 2 years. I am trying to keep hope.

Waiting and wanting

Alot of people think I am too young and should wait. I am 25 closing in on 26, my husband 27 closing in on 28 and wishing hard. It is so easy for those who say "oh once you give up it will happen" well look at them. Prego or have a child. My husband and I both are waiting but when does the waiting become reality? And yes everyone around me either has a child or expecting. Even my sister in lawwho was not even trying. AAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!
