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?

Babies,babies everywhere

The hardest part for me is knowing that many of the people that I know are either pregnant or recently had a baby. Being subjected to little ones constantly just makes me sad. I keep telling myself that it will happen when the time is right, but it's harad to believe that!

Pregger's blues


I can sing the 'I cant get preggers blues', I did it all, tempting, ovulation sticks, vitamins, vitex, primrose oil pills (or whatever they are called).

And NOTHING! I can relate to the frustration, depression and sadness of getting a negative after peeing on a pregnancy test stick.

I also became compulsive on reading every little symptom my body had (or I thought it had) as a sign of being pregnant.

I recently had an HSG (dye test to check if your tubes are open) and after thinking there was something definitely wrong with me, it came out that all is good in the baby factory in me. Still have to go thru the hormone blood tests and sperm counts and all that happy crap.

But if you look online for HSG's, all sites say that there is an increased chance of getting pregnant after the test, because they might clean out your tubes and anything sticky that made your little eggs not go where they are supposed to go.

Now, I am compulsively reading fertility blogs and making statistical samples of women (real women with real stories) who had the HSG and got pregnant afterwards, I want to know how soon afterwards, and I want to know their symptoms, I want to know if they were able to carry the baby to terms.

Is this healthy? I am driving myself crazy with this?? (no need to answer since I can tell I am going crazy).

Why has this to be so difficult, you spent your 20's avoiding getting pregnant and then you pray every day in your 30's to get pregnant... isnt that ironic??

Lying on my back with my legs in the air...again

I never imagined TTC would be such an emotional roller coaster! I feel like I'm surrounded by Big round bellies and new babies! I don't know why I just didn't think it would take this long we're currently on month 5, and I know that is not so long compared to what some other cupals go through but still it feels like a long time!

Since TTC I have been googling ovulation, fertility, the best ways to have sex to get pregnant, junkie! I can't stop! I'm completely obsessed with my cervical mucus! I quit smoking. I gave up coffee!!! I've been taking vitamins eating healthy and exercising.

I admittedly just quit the coffee a month and a half ago and started exercising at the same time. I decided to not quit feeling hopeful. Every month during the two week wait I make myself crazy trying to interpret my physical symptoms PREGNANCY or PMS??? I get depressed when I test negative and more depressed when I get the period.

Aside from quitting smoking and coffee I started drinking green tea, about 4-5 cups a day. I've been reading that green tea doubles your chances of conception if you drink a cup or more a day. I think all of my habit changes caused me to ovulate early this month (per my obsessive CM checking habit)! And even though I don't want to set myself up for depressing dissappointment when I don't pee a positive, I'm feeling good because I had some spotting and mabye it was implantation bleeding!!!

I feel better after venting! I know my husband is sick of the words cervical mucus! Anyhow The best to all of us trying to make a little miracle! Keep hoping!

If i hear another person next!

We have been trying now for 6 months - not long i know but i have wanted a baby for a lot longer. It was only 6 months ago we decided it was the time to start. I have a lot of friends who have got pregnant straight away or even from missing the pill for a few days I always thought i would be the same. Well months later and nothing. It driving me mad, its all i can think about all of the time. I never thought it would get like this!

I find out another one of my friends is expecting every month. I have met up with 3 old friends recently and they have just had babies!

Is it just me, I feel so alone! No onw knows we are even trying and if i hear another person say..... you next!!!!

feeling frustrated

I am feeling this one husband and I got pregnant when not even trying to and then lost the baby at 15 weeks. Now that we are trying we cant seem to make it happen. We know we are able to make one together which makes it even more frustrating. My husband is so excited about wanting a baby every month he is the one who wants to buy the test early lol...and every month when it dont happen I feel like I have let him down once again even though I know it is out of my hands and up to a higher power...

How much longer?

My husband and i have been married for 3 years now. I was on birth control for the 1st year, then i decided to get off the pill since i wasn't feeling at my best at that time. Anyway, i thought, well, if i get pregnant, hey, that's great, if not, we'll wait, we'll take our time.... Little did i know that it would take this much time....

So, it's been 8 months of trying now, and what do you think??? NOTHING,of course! Last month i even made myself think it might of happened, wanted to do an early pregnancy test, then i thought, i will just wait. Honestly, i don't understand how some people get pregnant so fast or even from a one night stand? I just can't comprehend that right now, it's like, yeah, pregnancy is a great thing, but for everybody else, not you!

I even went to the doctor and did some tests, and everything came normal. The doc said, nothing to worry about, at 27 you are still young, we don't suspect infertility problems unless you are over 35, so just keep trying...

I guess my husband is next in line for testing!

It's really frustrating when everyone around me is pregnant, my cousin who got married a year or so ago, has a 2 month old daughter now? How long did it take her? 2 months! I couldn't believe it!

So, this is how it goes- i am kinda getting tired of it, i am thinking to just focus on something else, and see what God has in store for us!
