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 feel you!! I have a 3 year old, and we have been trying for 4 months now too. It is exausting trying to keep positive, when everyone wants you to be preg! It took 2 weeks with our first, and I just assumed there would be no prob with second. I keep saying to myself "All in His time", but I am getting scared it won't happen. I will say a little prayer for you. It is nice to know there is someone else who is struggling too.

Am I being Selfish?

Hello all whom are frustrated w/ T.T.C.,

I'm 21 yrs. old and in a happyily committed relationship with a man 13 years my senior. I have known him for about 7 years and have been dating (seriously) for about a year. I have always been family oriented and have longed a big family. We have been "trying" since July when we had a false positive. I have never been pregnant before nor can I say I have 'tried' to become so. We are four months in to this and no baby. A friend of our has fallen pregnant and decided not to partake in the miracle of life. This has made him even more baby crazy and now he suspects that I am pregnant. I've tested and we are not, but what worries me is that months and years will pass... and still no baby. Is something wrong with my insides is what i'm starting to question myself. I have irregular periods and have started taking vitamins for fertility (Ovulex). Maybe wanting a baby so badly is why we haven't been blessed, it must be selfish to want to give life and share love.

If someone asks me again......

We have only been trying for 4 cycles, going on our fifth and we are not yet pregnant. I am very blessed and thankful for our beautiful 4 year old daughter and so happy the Lord has entrusted her to us! We had no problem getting pregnant with her, first try type of thing, so I thought the same would be true for the second time around. The hardest part for me is that our parents keep asking us when the next one is coming. It is not like I want to publicize that we are trying. That is a little too embarrassing. I am only 28 and know that we are going to be fine and it will happen when the Lord wants it to happen. I would like to not be asked anymore when we are going to have another one. I keep saying "When the Lord decides to Bless us with another child" but that is starting to feel redundant. Thanks for letting me vent!

getting in the family way

I have been ttc since July and although its I suppose really not that long it feels like an eternity, my best friends baby is due in February and she keeps asking when we are going to 'hurry up and get on with it' as are both of our families asking when we are going to 'get in the family way', frankly its quite depressing. I was a week late last month and it really got my hopes up, just to be dashed again!

Can't get pregnant

I've read a few postings and I can relate to most of them. I have a four year old and we've been trying for a second child, approx 7 cycles. THis after having 2 misscarriages in the past two years. It's extremely fustrating. My husband constantly tells me to relax, that it will happen, but I can't. We've been fighting a lot lately. He feels like it's become a chore, only on certain days, no spontaneity anymore. And of course to top it off, everyone is pregnant. everywhere I go.... I'm trying to remain positive, but every month I get my period, I get more depressed. Especially because I spend the time before my period analyzing all my symptoms, convincing myself I must be pregnant, peeing on a stick and getting a neg results only adds insult to injury...But every month is a new start, although I'm 37 so I'm feeling that time tick by.

DH's insensitivity...

My husband's insensitivity... He says "it hasn't been that long" even though we're about to pass the 1 year mark. He has also pointed out several times, when talking to friends and family in front of me, how his brother & sister in law are super fertile as they recently got pregnant with their second child on their first try. I found out they were pregnant the same day I got my period during my 9th or 10th cycle...so I was depressed...and he actually said to me that I'm just jealous and to get over it b/c I'm younger then my SIL and have plenty of time...some men just don't get it.

Keeping it a secret. Sometimes I wish everyone knew but it's really not my place to put it out there and I'm sure most people don't want to know you're "trying" (icky images and all).
