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?

I know how you feel

We've been trying to get pregnant for a little over two years. We have done 3 IUI's, gotten a couple of surgeries. According to the doctors we should be pregnant but... nothing. It's very frustrating sometimes. I want to have kids more than anything. All of my friends are starting to have kids. Everyone is pregnant but me!

I am trying to appreciate the time my husband and I have together without kids. I am also trying to enjoy my career and stop worrying so much about getting pregnant.

Conception Frustrations?

will conception ever happen???

Your posts have relieved some of my frustrations that I havn't concieved yet, I have a daughter of 5yrs in this pregnancy I got caught on the pill, my partner has two children from a previous relationship, but we want a baby of our own, I came off the pill in November 2007, i've been tracking my fertility etc, I know when my fertile days are, but still nothing, my dissapointment is so bad when each month my period arrives on time, apart from last month it was 7days late, I really thought that we had managed to concieve, we bought a test, I peed onto it and waited, I stared at the stick for what seemed like an eternity, to find it came up negative! I cried and cried, 5months later we still havn't concieved and I am beginnig to worry, I know that we can have children as we have 3 children between us from previous relationships, so why isn't it happening to us, I know that I am not alone in feeling like this but all we can do is keep trying and hope for the best, good luck to all you ladies out there who are in the same predicament as me and my partner.

Its been about 5 months now since I came off the Pill... and still not pregnant... I'm really quite upset and beginning to think there's something wrong... I have heard it can take a while when coming off the Pill.. as I was on this for 10 years.. I'm just hoping.. it will happen soon.......

Am I alone.. when I imagine I'm pregnant.. and then reading the negative test just makes me so upset.. What am I doing WRONG!

I am following the tables and charts and concentrating on my fertile days... But still NOTHING..... fingers crossed!!!!! for next ovualtion !

Conception Frustrations?

late period, negative tests

I'm 25 yrs. old and my husband (also 25) have been married for five years now. We've been trying to get pregnant the whole time. This time I thought it happened. My periods have never been late, since I was 14. Always early, NEVER LATE. My period was 4 days late this time. I was estatic. my husband is gone every other week, and wasn't home yet, and I wanted to tell him in person. So I ran out, got two pregnancy tests, took them- Negative. Okay, i thought. It's just too early, and they weren't exactly name brand either. No big deal. I'll just wait 'till hubby gets home, tell him the news and get another test. I get up this morning and go to the restroom, and I see pink. Crushed. Heartbroken. Failure, again. So, here I am sitting in the bathroom bawling. I mean the kind that makes it hard to breathe. Asking over and over "why?" "What have I done?" "What's wrong with me?" Everything in my gut was telling me "this is it. You're finally pregnant." After I took my first pregnancy test and it came back negative, I wasn't even phased by it. I knew it was wrong. I went to the kitchen, got a dove chocolate and when I opened it up, the message said "follow your instincts". I smiled, said a prayer for this to be really true, and went about my day. It was like that for four days. Sheer happiness. I didn't tell anyone because I wanted it to be a surprise. Now this! My husband comes home tomorrow, and I have to tell him that once again, it didn't happen. I just don't get it. Last months was lighter than usual, only went about 5-6 days, then This one is four days late. I didn't even feel it coming on. I had no period symptoms. No cramps, no breast tenderness( and mine get sore, bad), no lower back pain. None of it. I've read about implantation bleeding, but i don't know if that comes with small light cramps or not. If you read this and can help me, please do. I'm losing my mind here.

Conception Frustrations?

almost 7 years of trying!!

Well my husband and I have been off birth control for around 6 years now and we have never concieved!! We have both been checked, everything is normal, no low or bad sperm count, regular periods, no cysts or fibroids, a whole Easter basket of eggs according to the doctor...;) and yet still no pregnancy.

I can totally relate to the women who are beyond frustrated. My doctor says that we happen to fall into the "we dont have any anwsers as to why you are not getting preggo" category. Basically they are all stumped. We dont want to do the whole invitro or any fertility treatments, but that does not mean we dont want kids....we really do. We are just leaving it in Gods hands......I guess if he wants us to have kids then we will get preggo, if not then there must be a reason why. Who knows...maybe we are supposed to adopt?

Well, I just wanted to say that I sympathise with all of you who are frustrated, sad, depressed, confused, and angry...its hard.

Keep your heads up....I am. Miracles happen every day!
