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?

Glad I'm not totally alone...

So, my husband and I are about to celebrate our 2nd anniversary and questions of, "when are you going to have a baby" are resurfacing. To be honest, they never stopped coming from my MIL. In fact, she swore to take off work for two weeks every summer to keep her grandchild so we can go on vacation, if I hurry up and have one. Really, she did. Anyway, I've stopped calling her, for the most part, because every time we talk, the inevitable "Are you pregnant, yet?" comes into play.

It's not that I don't want to have children, that's not it at all. Actually, we've been trying since January. I thought it would be instant, I mean everyone else seems to get pregnant so fast. Then, around March, my close friend found out she was 5 weeks pregnant. Awesome, right? Wrong... she lost the baby 6 weeks later. So, needless to say I was scared, and we stopped trying.

Now, here it is July and we've talked about trying again. My biggest problem is that I'm scared that something is wrong and I can't get pregnant. No, I'm not a hypochondriac, I have lupus. It's an autoimmune disease and after reading all about it and experiencing firsthand the sheer havoc it wreaks on your body, I'm terrified!

In my heart, I know that God is the creator of all things and through him anything is possible. But, that doesn't stop me from being scared as hell and doubting that I'll ever get pregnant. I could go on and on, but I'll stop. We'll just keep trying and praying.

eight years difference in kids

my first child was born in aug 1995, well his little sister took longer to have than i thought it would, try dec 2003. and now she and her father are talking about me having another. please, i'm in my mid thirties and he's in his early 40's. i'm not interested in having another one when i'm in my forties. so i'm feeling the pain when women talk about taking so long to conception.

good luck to all

I don't wanna be green...

Since we've been trying, my brother has had two! Other women at church and work having babies too! Right now, two ladies at work are in their first trimester and one is in her second. It's kinda hard not to envy them.

Hassles with Trying (after 3 years)

Trying to conceive. Wow. I have been TTC for 3 Years in December. The only thing is, I have had 4 miscarriages since I started trying. Two first trimester losses and two late second trimester losses. I was overwhelmed after I lost my boys due to placental abruption and I didn't know where to start.

And now, I am just on the brink of quitting. TTC is exhausting. My doctors don't see a problem, "You are able to get pregnant". Yes, I am but I lose the baby(s) each darn time!!!!

And My MIL wants to know when I'm going to give her a grandchild! When she starts asking, I just want to pull my hair out. I just had identical twin boys a few months ago, they were GRANDCHILDREN! But since they aren't making noise, they were not babies.

Sorry, just frustrated..

Good news is...I can test in a few days and find out whether or not I caught my egg!!
