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?

frusterated about sex and conception

I have had a tubal reversal and I am frusterated because I have no way of knowing whether it worked or not, as far as I know from my doctor we will find out when I get pregnant. I am also in my second marriage and my husband says he wants a baby but he is lacking a sex drive. How am I supposed to get pregnant when he does not want sex?? I am having a hard time not taking is it personaly. I know I am quite pretty and so it is not my looks and I have a body that most girls would die for even after three children.

He is only 42 he should not be losing is libido yet, should he??? He just tells me to leave him alone and I feel I have to wait for him to initiate it. This rejection is really hurting my feelings and I am frusterated.

Conception Frustrations?

30 or 35 seems young!

I realise it must be frustrating not to get pregnant again, and discovering that conception after 35 is harder. I just turned 40 (seems young to me!) I was remarried at 37 in 2004 after a 14 year childless marriage (sort of by choice, but it's a long story). My husband is away a great deal and we have been TTC for nearly 3 years now. I finally tried clomid to improve my ovulatory function which seems to have worked (no ultrasounds, but periods seem better) but after 4 cycles I just got my period again today. Ugh! I'm trying not to get frustrated, but it's difficult. I was advised by my spiritual guide that all the trials and tribulations I've been through will help me understand and help other women when I finally suceed in conceiving and bringing the pregnancy to term. So, I would say, don't get frustrated, this is yet life experience from which to grow.... :) We are also going through the adoption process, and will have a family one way or another. Good luck and happiness to all.

Beyond Frustration

I agree, it's when you want it most that it doesnt happen. DH and I have been TTC for over a year. A year ago this month we got pg, but then lost the baby in November. Since then I've found out that like 6 people I know are pregnant and it kills me! My sister in law is the worst tho. She doesn't realize that by her blabbing about her pregnancy (due in Feb 2008) that she's driving me up a wall and slowly into depression. It's hard when you don't know why you're not getting pg. DH and I are going to the DR in 5 days to get checked out. Can't be too much wrong tho - we have a 4 year old. If I could do it once, why won't it happen again. It's so frustrating isn't it? And I hate when people say "Your putting too much thought into it - stop thinking about it and it'll happen". How do you stop thinking about something like that? It's impossible! Dh's mother when to a psychic a few weeks ago, told her she was gonna have 3 grandkids by 2009 (2 in 2008 and 1 in 2009) - a week later we found out DH's sister is pg. I can only pray that this psychic was right and that I'll be getting pg soon. Hope, it's all that really matters. I just wish it wasn't so hard to get pg. It drains you.

36 and still tyring to get pregnent

I'm 36 and we have been trying to conceive for almost a year now. Although the trying and failing are heart breaking and frustrating the most frustrating think about the whole situation is people telling me that I should just be thankful for the two I have.Comments like those are like telling someone "you just ate last week why do you need to eat again? Having a child whether it's your first or your third is a very personal emotional thing. It's hard enough waiting every month to see if the little stick has one line or two without people making it harder!

conception frustration

I've been TTC for almost 2 years now and know exactly what everyone is feeling. I decided to further my career and put off having children, if I only knew. I'm only 32 y.o. but in the reproductive world that's getting up there. I always thought I'd have no problem getting pregnanat. My mom's one of 10 kids and I'm one of 6. I was diagnosed with PCOS 5 months ago and have been taking clomid for 3 cycles now. I'm ovulating with the drug, I'm just not getting pregnant. Two months ago I found out my best friend was pregnant ("without trying") , a month ago I found out my sister-in-law is pregnant, and then last week I found out my little sister is pregnant (without trying). So after a few days of crying, I pick myself up and focus on the goal. For those of you going through this, know, it's o.k. to be depressed, it's o.k. to be sad. There will be good days and bad days, and on those bad days it will seem easy to fall into depression just to make the pain go away. But don't give up HOPE. It will happen. I write myself letters when I'm feeling really bad, words of encouragement that I read later on and it helps. Baby dreams to everyone.
