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?

Frustrated and Concerned

Ok here goes (my story)... I graduated high school in June of 1998 and started working right away in January 1999 found out I was pregnant. When I told the JERK he of course denied that it was his. To make a long story short started seeing a new guy when 3 months pregnant who was a long time friend. We ended up marrying. He took my unborn child as his and put his name on the birth certificate as the father knowing fully that he was not. We divorced a year later cuz he was cheating and then started to beat on me. Met and fell in love with a man 11 years older. We split up and I spent from 2000 to 2004 raising my son on my own. I always believed ... if u love him set him free if he comes back its meant to be. I got on DEPO at that time because I did not want any kids. January 2004 had LEEP procedure done to remove cancerous cells on cervix. November 2004 this older man and I got back together. I stopped the DEPO at this time too. Last shot was in November of this same year. Tried to get pregnant and had fertility testing done. I am fine and so is he. Periods were all messed up from this birth control. January 2007 we got married. At this time OB/GYN put me on YAZ to straighten out periods. Didn't think it was helping so stopped them on my own in March 2008. Got period on my own April 23, 2008. Thought we hit my ovulation. Got period again yesterday May 27, 2008. Apparently did not hit ovulation like we thought. All we want is one together. Why is it so hard.

In the Same Boat

I know exactly what you are feeling.In November, I too got pregrant after 12 years of "trying".My husband and I did not do any of the hormone treatments but we had decided that if happened or didn't happen we would be fine with it.I have a son from a previous relationship and he's 19 years old, so when we found out I was pregnant, we were overjoyed. We lost the baby when I was at 12 weeks. Now, we are trying again -- I'm still sensitive to seeing other pregnant women or seeing/hearing of families and the abuse (drugs, alcohol, physical, mental)going on in homes, but yet those families in trouble keep having more and more kids!I get frustrated knowing that I can provide a loving home and family for a baby, but I'm not given the chance to do so again.

prometrium

TTC for 8 mths now. Diagnosed with pcos last month. Irregular long period cycles (40-50 days). Waiting for period to start so I can start clomid. Took prometrium for 10 days and no luck, just spotting. Anyone else in this situation?

High risk!!! Help

My husband and I are wanting to have another baby. I am high risk. We have a daughter who was only 4 weeks early (pre-eclamsia). She is 4 years old now. She didn't have any trouble. Then in July 2006 we found out we were going to have a baby. He was due is April, but I went into labor suddenly in December. He was 1 pound 4.8 ounces. He was only with us for 8 months. Those few months were the best and hardest months of our lives. We want to have another baby, but are scared that I won't be able to carry he/she full term. We know a baby won't replace our son, and we know no one or nothing will ever be able to replace him. He was the strongest baby I have ever known. We have been trying since November, and nothing. We are getting so frustrated. We want to have another baby so bad. We are going to the doctor yet again, to see what we can to to help us. We don't know what to except. I haven't had trouble having them in the past, I'm just hoping that with my C-Section the doctors didn't do anything to prevent me from having a baby. I heard this was possible, maybe they cut you in the wrong place? I don't know. We just want to have a baby. If there are am suggestions please let me know.

Oh Boy

I know I'm young and have my whole life ahead of me, but I've been in this relationship for over 2 yrs and I'm ready to have a family. He's older than me and already has a child. I look around me and see so many people having children and are not fit parents. Day in and out I think that I can't have children. This becomes so frustrating because many people think I'm pregnant now because I picked up weight, but that's all it is. People evn ask me when I'm going to have a child? Oh Boy...

Ovulation kit frustrations

I've been TTC unsuccessfuly for 8 months now. In the past 3 months i've been using ovulation test kits. I understand that this doesn't mean i'll conceive first time but this last month on two occasions the little blue line to show that the test has worked has come up but no result line. Usually it's light blue if not fertile and dark blue if you are. I've had no line and have looked for answers to what this means but can't get any. It is worrying should I talk to my doctor I think he will just tell me you don't have a problem untill you've ben trying for over a year!! I just don't know wether to continue with these tests every month. I would appreciate any input on this thanks
