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?

trying to conceive and miscarriage

My husband and I have been trying to concieve for almost three years and when we finally got pregnant last month I had a miscarriage which my dr. sees as no problem however I disagree after three years you'd think this might be a sign of needing to intervene. The next unpleasantry from this is that every person I see wants to know when are you going to have a brother or sister for your son. I just want to scraem and the best is when everybody was like oh are you pregant yet and I was going through the miscarriage and my all time favorite is well now your body will be ready to get pregnant faster or at least you know you can get pregnant now. I don't believe that people can just diregard the baby that easily and my husband and my feelings. Any advice from anyone or any luck with fertlity monitors. I have had it with charts and temps and planning everything for the right time my husband even jokes now that he's on aschedule and I think that maybe the monitor would reassure me that we are in fact at least trying at the right time. Best of luck to all of you and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

STILL staying positive

I have two best friends. One gave birth this afternoon to her second, the other to her first 3 mo ago. My husband and I have been trying for a year. I have had cycles since I got off the pill anywhere from 27-67 days. I started my period yesterday and it's the worst one of my entire life. What usually requires 2 tampons a day has required 7! I am hoping that this is cleaning out my body and in a few weeks I will be Fertile Mertle. We are even in the midst of a full infertility work up. It has made me feel better, even just to know my chances instead of letting all the questions linger in my head all day. I would suggest it.

I want to be a mommy.BADLY

My problem is I have had Ovarian Cysts all my menstral life. Since I was 11. I've been on and off birth control pills up until a year ago when we first tried to get preggers. My periods are irregular flow but the length are pretty normal. Sometimes I have a no show, and get my hopes up. Then nothing. I'm gonna try the Answer ovulation tests this month after I go to the Doc for a pap. But this month I'm late and took a pregnancy test and still nothing. I dont know what to do. I dont have the extra money for fertility drugs. What do you all suggest I do? What are some cheap and effective fertility treatment and pills?

Desperitely wanting to be a mommy.

Do you Wear These Shoes?

Im only 23 years old and I have been trying to get pregnant with my husband for 11 months. As of late they have informed me that not only am I not even ovulating, that I dont have the hormones to ovulate and without taking the progesterone and Clomid (sp?) it wont be possible for me to conceive. For the past 11 months all i have heard from people is that "im too stressed out", or "i just need to relax and not think about it" and Im so tired of everyone telling me that Im stressed because Im not. To top it all off, a friend of mine that knew I have been trying for so long just got pregnant after being off of condoms for one month! Then the day she told me she was pregnant she smoothered it into my face the whole day! I guess I just want to hear from someone that has been in my shoes and was told they would have to use the fertility drugs. If im not pregnant by next month Im told that they are going to do the Endo Laproscopy on me, which Im hoping wont have to take place. My husband keeps telling me that hes under a lot of stress with me taking these pills and its taking a toll on him (WHAT ABOUT HOW I FEEL?) i just dont feel like anyone can relate and there isnt anyone i can talk to. I even tried to talk to my friend about it and all she could do is sit there and try to tell me that I could look into adopting... Im not even ready to think in that direction and that wasnt what I wanted to hear from her. I just need someone to tell me that they have been through this and that there is hope. Any words of advice (besides "it will happen" or "Dont stress out"?) Thanks for listening!

Same old story...

I have a son, my fiance has a daughter. He is a wonderful man and father. We have been trying for nearly a year now to no avail. We could be trying harder, but I don't want to put too much pressure on us. He would like a son to carry on his name as he is the only male in his family. At first we joked about not being able to get pregnant. But now, I don't find it so funny. Since we decided to start trying, my sister has had a son. My best friend is a couple months pregnant. A few days ago another friend of mine found out she was pregnant. And yesterday...yep, you guessed it! Another close friend found out she was also pregnant. None of them were trying, nor are they in the "ideal" situation to have another child. These are all their second children. They say, well, it's your turn now. I KNOW! I wish it was that easy. I must admit that when the last friend made her announcement, the look on my face made it so painfully obvious that I was not as happy as I should be for her. A couple of ill attempted jokes and fake smiles tried to cover up my hurt, but I don't think it helped much. I had to sneak away to let out a few tears. It's not that I'm not happy for them, it's just, how can I sit back and watch them all go through 9 mos of pregnancy and then give birth to beautiful little babies when I'm wishing I could join the club? I never was much for kids and after I had my son, said I didn't want anymore. I couldn't fathom ever actually wanting and trying to have another child. But now that I have found this fabulous man, I find myself depressed when aunt flo pays her little visit. I feel like a complete failure. I have had a cyst on my cervix in the past and can't help but to wonder if there was some permanent damage. However, I do not have the resources or desire to go through any unnatural methods of conception. To sum it up...yep, everybody but me, the one who is stable and so eager to have another child.
