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?

We demand our BFPS!!

I empathise with everyone on this thread - I am 28 (Husband is 27) and having been TTC for 3 months. Its weird that I spent many years TAC and was sometimes worried that I might be pregnant, however now I'm happily married and TTC I'd love a pregnancy scare! Looks like theres some strange karma thing going on here!

But for sure the frustations are 1) the waiting ... a month used to whizz by, now a week seems like a year. 2) The symptoms ... trying to figure which PMS/pregnancy symptoms are real or are they in your head? 3) Babies and pregnant ladies everywhere ... they are on TV, the supermarket, the train and some people have twins and triplets and you just want one! 4) The day AF comes DAY 1 AGAIN! ... Trying to put a brave face on but secretly you just want to stay home and cry all day. 5) The loving husband/partner ... is it just me or are they the lucky ones as they seem so calm?!

Anyway, rant over ... day 7 today so baby dust to me this month and to everyone TTC xox

A month is such a long time and question on progesterone!

Hi everyone,

I have a question and wanted to see if anyone had any insight - I'm needing it badly! My husband and I have been TTC since July. I went off the pill in May and after that, had irregular cycles ranging from 23-30 days and had spotting/light bleeding that would be anywhere from 4-10 days before my period would start. In October, my doctor put me on a progesterone supplement to help regulate my cycle and the bleeding. It seems to have worked - no more pre-bleeding and cycles that are now 27-29 days. Here's my question. I'm on these supplements from days 12-23 in my cycle. I recently read that if you're on progesterone, you are to take AFTER ovulation. But if I'm ovulating anywhere from day 12 on, I'm already on the progesterone and wondering if it's hurting our chances of getting pregnant?!

I never realized how long a month truly was until we started trying to get pregnant. Wait to try, wait to find out if we're pregnant, find out we're not and wait to try again. Like many of you, I seem to be surrounded by people who have no problem getting pregnant and while I am happy for them, it's so hard to just keep waiting and hoping, only to be let down again and again.

Any insight on this would be so appreciated. I'll be calling my dr. tomorrow, but am antsy to hear if the days I'm taking this supplement are messing things up worse. Wondering if I should go off it and see if my body has had time to regulate itself! Thank you!

Second Time Around

I have one child already and we have been trying for the second for 3 years now with no luck. Since my first pregnancy my periods have been worse and I'm getting no help from doctors. I feel like the doctors think if I could get pregnant the first time with no help I should the second time.

Why is it that when you are tyring to get pregnant that it seems like everyone around you IS pregnant! If anyone has any ideas or tips for the second time around please let me know!

Thanks.

I thought it would be sooo simple!

I just turned 28 and stopped taking the BCP on September 21st...I had this crazy idea that I would be pregnant already! How is it that two of my girlfriends got pregnant by "accident" while on the pill...those two friends had twins by the way. I do find myself getting jealous of others who conceive so quickly or on just one shot! Oh..and people telling me "it will happen when you least expect it"...that's so annoying! But that is also how I felt when people said that when I thought I would be single forever! Then I met the man of my dreams..so I guess depending on what you believe in, everything happens for a reason and it WILL happen! We just have to do our absolute best to take care of our mind and body...I know I probably haven't been doing that as well I should!

Still not pregnant!

I know how alot of you all feel. I am 23 years old and i have been married 5 years and still no children. We have been trying for a few years now. At first we thought that it would happen when it happened. Then a few years ago we went to a fertility doctor and she told us to wait 6 months and see what happens. Well we waited but by the time the 6 months came i had to deploy. I am a cop in the air force. So then once i got back we decided to try again and see what happens. Nothen was happening so then we went to see the same doctor again she told us to wait again. and once again we waited and then i deployed again. Well im finally home and in a job where i cant deploy again. and i found a doctor who is on board with me, no waiting. Ive been on clomid for 5 months about to start my 6 month. He told me that i should be pregnant after 6 months on clomid. My mom was on clomid for 3 months and got pregnant. Well this last month i thought it was going to happen, everything was going fine. I thought we were doing everything right well guess not. I started today. I try not to be upset but WTH! It makes me think what wrong with me? why am i having such a hard time? when most of my friends seem to get pregnant so easy. most of them get pregnant on one night stands! even my sister in law got pregnant! and they werent planning it. It just getting very hard. Makes me want to give up all together. im sick of trying and every month just get let down. It hurts and my husband doesnt seem to understand. It says hes upset to but he doesnt show it. i dunno what to do anymore. The doc said he'll up my dosage and see what happens. So ill hope for the best. Good luck to all of you.
