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?

Naphtali (My Struggle)

It has been a year since my husband and I decided that we wanted children. This is our first time. I don't think anything is wrong with either one of us, so we don't do doctor visits. I just started taking herbs and a multivitamin this month so I want to give those time to work. Every month is a roller coaster for me though, because I don't know if I am pregnant or not, I never have been so I don't know what it feels to be, but I do have PMS, which feels like pregnancy symptoms almost all the time. This month I almost turned a back flip because my period was 3 days late, I wanted to wait longer before I got a pregnancy test done, on the 3rd day of my missed period, I scheduled a docs. appointment 3 days afterwards, because then I would have missed my whole cycle. The next day, the worse cramps woke me up, and later on that day I started my period. The night before I prayed that if this is it, let it be so, if not, oh well. I came to this point because I'm tired of working my mind every single month, wondering, is this it? I'm a stay at home wife so I don't have anything else to do but think about having children. I started to drive myself crazy over it. Now, I'm currently looking for a job and I'm taking a dance class, so that I can have something to do, cause it's hard to not think about it when there is nothing to do.

It's been a long long year

My hubby & I have been trying since December 2006. There is nothing like the disappointment when the period doesn't come & the test is negative. Your doctor says "Don't worry, you're still young, see me next year". I'm going to be 30 my next birthday (I don't think I'm "young"). It really is quite a blow to the self-esteem! I'm hoping & wishing that a baby will be in my future for 2008.

Almost 7 months TTC

My fiance and I have been trying to concieve for almost 7 months now.. I was previously on birth control for 6 and a half years. I stopped taking it June 6th 2007 and we still haven't gotten preggo... My period before birth control was always on time and regular. Now they're all messed up. Sometimes I am a week late, sometimes 2 weeks late, sometimes its right on time. I would think by now they'd be regular but they aren't. Its so frustrating! I was hoping we'd get a Positive HPT for Xmas but it doesn't look like thats going to happen. And to make things worse, my friend from work just found out that she's pregnant and she doesn't even want to be. Its like everyone I know can get preggo on accident and I'm still trying and trying and not getting anywhere...

TTC for almost 6 years

My husband and I have been wanting more children. We have two beautiful and happy babies already. We have never used any kind of protection. It took 3 years between son and daughter. When we had our son it was planned he would be the first of six. We both wanted a large family. And now almost 7 years later no more babies. It seems, everyone around us is having babies. My husband's cousin has 8 kids and just had one of them recently. I feel like I'm a complete failure. My husband keeps telling me if we are to have more, we'll have more. If not, we're fine. And I know we are fine, but I wanted to have more babies. And now that I'm 32, I feel like I'm running out of time.

TTC

My husband and I have been trying for 9months now and I havent even gotten pregnant. I work at a hospital and I see so many women having babies that are too young, have a hand full already, first time mothers but weren't trying to have a baby. I also see the ones that planned their pregnancy, but the difference is they got pregnant and I'm not. I'm on pre-natal and it hasn't helped. I have never been on birth control, so that's not whats stopping it. My husband has children from a previous relantionship, so I just figure its me. The doctors haven't found anything wrong, so what's wrong. I just keep trying and hope that I receive my bundle of joy, sooner instead of later.

My Story

Well....I can relate with alot of you guys. I am 32 and my hubby is 37. We have been married for almost 8 years. I have two children from prev. marriage that are 13 and 14. Hubby has no children. We have been ttc since our wedding night. We have had 1 misscarriage and a tubal pregnancy that ended in emergency surgery with the removal of 1 of my tubes. We are trying to adopt and have been matched once but two weeks before the birth the birth mom decided to parent. Like most of you I know that God has a plan for us but it is really hard to be patient when you want something so bad. All of my friends have had babies since we have been trying and a few of them have had 2 or more. I am happy for them but deep inside I am so sad. Well I guess that is all for now.
