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?

Hormone stimulation

Me and my husband are TTC for more than a year. In may last year I had a misscariage in the 7th week of the pregnancy. Since then, my hormones are up and down, especially estradiol and progesteron, I have anovulating cycles and the doctor said that on Friday we will start hormone stimulation and then see what happens. Have anyone had a hormone stimulation? Tell me how does it go. Good luck!

Baby Blues

I hear you! I got pregnant in November and miscarried at week 10. It has now been four months of trying and nothing. Yet, everyone around me is getting pregnant, some of them while they are on the pill!!! A friend is reading "The Secret" and has told me that I have to think positive thoughts at all times and think as though I a pregnant. She even went as far to say that it is possible my negative thoughts caused me to miscarry in Jan. (I do not believe this.) I try to think happy thoughts but that is not always possible. I do watch my ovulation cycle and have started using a Basal Thermometer. I think/pretend that I conceive and am pregnant but when Aunt Flo shows up, it is devestation. I am 32 and spouse is 38, first time trying. I know I can get pregnant so I am confident it can happen again but now I worry I just can't carry a baby. Now everyone tells me we are just trying to hard to get pregnant. I say I am just trying to increase my chances.

What it boils down to is that, it doesn't matter how long you have been trying, one month or one year, when you finally make the decision to bring a child into this world and it isn't happening, it is hard to handle. You do think of all the unwanted babies in the world, all the malnourished and drugged out women that have babies, and it is just unfair.

Frustrated and Confused!!

I am officially baffled and frustrated!! We have been trying for over 1 year and I still can't get prego. I come from a HUGE family! My mom had 7 children and I am the only one that does not have children. My husband and I have both been tested and we are both fine. I am on my 2nd month of Clomid. I was really hopeful this past month because I had my level checked and it was 44! The nurse said 10-12 was a normal range. My level was so high! Then the Red Sea came down. What happened? I am still trying to be hopeful. Is there anyone who had similar levels while taking Clomid? Lastly, I hope people stop asking "when are you going to start a family?" That question drives me crazy!

TTC - the early days

I know that in comparison with so many people that only 5 months of trying is nothing. However, my period arrives and I burst into tears!

The worst of it is, is that I met a friend recently and she advised me that she could not have some wine as planned because she was pregnant - not planned and one moment of contraceptive free madness. Why when we were younger were me so frightened to get pregnant and it was made out to be so easy. Its all enough to make you insane. I am trying to be calm about it all and rational but each time my period day approaches i get obsessed and oh so hopeful. I really admire people who have held it together for so long. Not sure how well I will cope.

You're pregnant too

I totally feel your pain. I have been ttc since OCT 2006, and nothing yet. I've done EVERY test imaginable and there's nothing wrong. I ovulate, hormone levels are normal, tubes are not obstructed, etc. and I still haven't gotten pregnant, but EVERYONE around me has. What makes it worse is that neither of us have children and our parents are pressuring us to make the grandparents. Currently, AF is 3 days late, but I don't want to get excited yet. I will pray and keep my fingers crossed for you!

Conception Woes

I too have been having conception woes. My husband and I have been trying for about a year in a half. We knew something was wrong but Dr.'s don't really want to assist you unless you have been trying a full year with no sucess (and to us that is a looong time). We finally reached our year and no baby. We saw a fertility specialist who was nice and made me do all kids of test and noticed I wasn't even ovulating.....he gave me Clomid (boom) on the first cycle I was pregnant. But I lost that baby....They don't have a reason.....I was like ok a little bump in the road no problem lets just try again we'll no can do.....I got pregnant right after the miscarriage and lost that one. To make matters worse the doctor I love isn't there anymore so now I see this new guy who wants to do "MORE" test and I even had to endure a saline sonogram to check out my uterus to make sure it was in tip top shape (which it was)......So now they want to know why I can't stay pregnant....."MORE PROBLEMS". Plus I found out I have PCOS. We are now back on the Clomid band wagon and hoping for success this cycle that will go full term. I think I have very low progestrone that will not sustain a pregnancy.
