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?

I can relate!

I completely understand! My husband and I have been actually "trying" for 2 years now. We have had him tested. Figures he was fine. :) I am going in to have an HSG done next week. Uhhh! We tried to postpone it as long as we could. I think the worst part is that family and friends keep telling us to hurry up! HELLO! We WANT to get preggers! Then when I explain that there is some sort of infertility issue they respond with, "Just relax and it will happen." My husband is to the point that he doesn't even want to talk about a baby anymore. Sad actually. Infertility really takes the joy out of trying. Hopefully all goes well with the HSG. My doc said it can increase your chance of conceiving in the first 3 cycles after it is done by 30%. We'll see...

Bringing in the New Year (year five TTC)

We got married in 2000. We were not trying to avoid getting preg. from that point, but we weren't trying at the time.

We've been trying since 2003 without any luck so far. I've been on Clomid (going to be staring the 5th cycle this week).

We are both 38, which makes me feel like time is running out-even though people keep telling me I have "all the time in the world".

Most of the posts I've read in this topic are people TTC for 1 year or 2 years. It is very frustrating.

Trying to Conceive...

I can totally relate to this. My husband and I have been married for just over three years now. Since BEFORE the wedding our families have been after us to get started on a family. We wanted to take our time and enjoy each other before and have just started ttc in the last few months. Now that we are, everytime someone comments I want to scream "We are trying! Leave us alone!" All the added pressure from family is not helping an already testy situation. I thought making a baby was going to be more fun!

It gets harder and harder everyday...

It is so hard trying to stay positive when everyone in your life keeps harrassing you and your husband of three years when's the baby coming. If they only knew that we have been TTC for nearly two years all awhile dealing with PCOS, they'd probably stop taunting us the way they do. I try not to get frustrated since I know their hopefulness is out of love but it gets harder and harder every single month I can't conceive. I'm sure sooner rather than later it will be easier just to accept that not everyone is meant to be a mom, but something in me won't let me quit until I've exhausted every possibility.

Trying to stay positive.

I can relate to this topic. My husband and I have been married for three years. We have been off birth control for one and a half. It seems like every where I look there are pregnant women and new mothers. I keep telling myself to stay postive, but every month that I don't concieve I find myself more and more frustrated.

I know I am young (26) but it is frustrating that I haven't gotten pregnant yet. The frustrating part is that I have been with my hubby for 7 years. We were waiting until I was done with my military obligation (Reserves for 8 years) to have a baby. I didn't want to leave my baby due to a deployment. Well, now we have been married for 5 years and my obligation is only for 9 more months. We have been trying for the last year and nothing!

I see the same thing...everyone pregnant all my friends are on round 2 or 3 for kids. Of course people who aren't trying get pregnant instantly. But someone who has waited and has a marriage, a house, a career and has their life together can't get pregnant.

My husband says if we were in high school with full ride scholarships to our choice of school or a chance to study abroad we would be pregnant in a heart beat but since we are ready for a baby we will be waiting a while.

It just is frustrating!
