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?

5yrs and the clocks still a ticking!!

I'm really starting to get frustrated! My aproximate TTC and waiting time is 5yrs and still ticking. I guess I just don't understand what our problem is...I've been through most of the testing and drugs(up to injectables)and still to no avail....The last year and a half I've tried to be good to my body and get it back into a "normal state"(clearing out all the hormone drugs) and I feel great. The only thing missing...a baby for our family. What is a girl suppose to do next? I have the cbfm and I'm looking into buying the ov watch, but wonder if these things really work for the amount of $$ they want for it. I guess I'm just looking for some words of wisdom to get me through these next few months before I go back to the Re and get all wacked out on the fertility drugs again. (I really would like this to happen without them)

Having trouble getting pregnant!

I know how all you ladies feel. I am 27 years old and me and my husband have been trying to have a baby for the last 7 months and nothing... It is so frustrating when everyone around you is getting pregnant and you are not. I have had 4 people in my family and 6 people in his family not including all of the 10 or 12 friends that are all pregnant or have had a baby in the last 3 months. It really makes you depressed when you think about it... It seems like ever where I look I see a pregnant woman walking around or hear a little baby crying every where. Why me??? I just keep asking myself what is wrong with me, why can't I have a baby now too. Everyone is always asking us when we are going to have a little one. We so badly want to but just can not seen to make it work. WHY??? Everyone tells me to not think about it and it will happen, but how can you forget about it when everyone just keeps bring it up.

I would never have thought.......

I'm 39 yrs. young and I have a 20 year old daughter. I am in my first marriage which will be a year in about 13 days. My husband is 7 yrs younger than I am and we soooo desperately want a child. We were pregnant back in February that ended in miscarriage. We have been trying hard ever since with no luck. For some reason this month I thought would be the month being that my husband had the old fish dream....But I just had a very light pink show????? I'm so disappointed yet again...It's very upsetting to feel like your time is running out on something that you want to badly. Never in a million years would I ever had thought I would want another child being that my child was born when I was only 19 yrs. old and unmarried. But here I find myself in this wonderful new life in search of the perfect addition to our lives and it seems so out of reach and beyond our control....So here I am TTC with it all. Keep praying for me because I'm gonna keep trying. I just never thought that that clock would be ticking so loudly!!!!!!!

Post Tubual Reversal

I have also just had a tubual reversal and unfortunantly you won't know if it worked until you get pregnant. What my doctor mentioned is he is giving us 6 months and if I'm not pregnant then we will do a HSG (hystosalpingogram) which is done in x-ray and they inject dye into the uterus to see if the fallopian tubes are open. Unfortuantly for us they were only able to fix one of my tubes, and the doctor isn't even very confident on that side. I had my tubes burned and cut so the scar tissue was bad, and he's not sure what will happen with only one side fixed. So that's a downer. He was giving us 80% but he dropped it to 50%, which I guess is better then nothing. As my mom said, "Everyone has 50% chance of getting pregnant, you have sex and you either get pregnant or you don't". So atleast in the beginning of trying that's what I have to laugh at until hopefully something happens. What is discouraging to me, is when my doctor says you should have just had IVF. Well at $10,000 to $25, 000 we just can't afford it. But after we've paid for the surgery, out of pocket, it's frustrating to hear.
