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?

Changing my focus has made all the difference....

After 27 months of trying to conceive a child, we still are not pregnant. Some may think that we (especially me) may be quite bitter by this point. Although I will admit that I have hit some pretty low lows in the last 27 months, the last three months have been wonderful. You see, I finally realized that I am not in control but God is in control. He knows the perfect time for us, I don't. I have put my full faith and trust in Him and now I have complete peace that someday, we will have a child.

My advice to those who are feeling discouraged, look to Jesus and He will help you. He is our greatest source of love and strength. I'll be praying for all of you in your TTC adventures. God bless you all!

Getting Frustrated Now

My husband and I have been married about 1 1/2 years now and have been TTC since January 2007. Month after month I get the same regular as clockwork period, but every month I get more and more disappointed.

DH is older than me and has 4 children already, but he is excited at the thought of having another little one. This will be my first.

My mum took 2 years to fall pregnant with me but I really don't want to wait that long :(

I am keeping my fingers crossed that I fell this month. Only a couple of friends know we're trying. I haven't told my parents, although I'm sure my mum suspects we are. (My mother-in-law has 16 neices and nephews so she's not on my case at all!).

*sigh* I suppose it'll happen in due course.

conception frustration i fully understand

I'm already a mum of 2 school age children but divorced from their dad about 4 yrs ago. I understand the feeling of wanting to have another child as just recently i have married a man with no children of his own. And so also feel obliged to have a child with him at the start but now i want one just as much as he does and my body seems to be all over the place as when i come on etc so watching my cycle is a nightmare. We have been through so many tests that we could of bought out a whole shop! But we carry on trying but i don't want sex to become a baby making routine as it can cause stress and make it even harder to catch but my partner doesn't understand how a woman can become obsessed with catching even though he goes on about having his little princess which puts more pressure on me then him!

So Sad

My Husband and I were able to become pregnant with our son the first month after we decided that we wanted to have a baby, our son is now three and we have want to have another. We have been trying for the last 6 months and as the months go on I become more depresses because my son gets older and we wanted the two children to enjoy each others company in the younger years if possible and that is fading and every time I see a pregnant woman or a newborn a little part of my cries inside. I love My son with all of heart but he had colic for the from the second month of his birth to 7 months old he has colic. We thought that there was something so wrong with him and even had tests run on him at the hospital. He did enjoy the baby swing and that did seem to calm him so we did not get hold or cuddle him, then once he was cured he became so independent and still is. He is such a lover but an independent one. I would feel selfish if I did not have another one, my son is such a spectaular wonder and to not share another little gift would break my heart. My husband and I are a younger couple and have tried ovulation tests but have not yet discussed the issue with my doctor I guess because I would hope that I'm younger therefore I should not have a conception issue. I don't know. Thank you for letting me vent.

I long for that second pink line in the test window!

I know the sorrow of getting the bfn every single month, I hate it! I have come to hate the pure white of the pregnancy tests and long for that second pink line in the test window. Dh doesn't understand just how much I want it right now, I don't know why I am like this right now, I wasn't like this before, I was ok with waiting for another baby but now I feel like it is something that I want so badly, I guess it started with my last MC it made me realize just how much I long to be pregnant and have another baby in the house.

It doesn't help much that my DD has been asking me for 3 months now "Mommy can you have two babies for me?" I wish I could tell her yes and it would be that simple, but it's not!

Looking ahead depite...

Yes, I run into pregnant people everywhere. Out shopping, at work, at the gym even on the television. I usually take my cue and move on to the next task needing to be done around the house. My husband is supportive and patient, but I don't feel he understands my desire to bear his children. I have become "THAT" woman, obsessed about baby and I don't know how to stop her. I'm disappointed it hasn't happened as we had planned. Everything happens for a reason and all that stuff, ya ya ya. Not to me, not normally, except now. I would appreciate it if everyone would stop trying to coddle me and just listen with an open ear. I'm 33 and the clock is officially ticking. Trying to be positive, while being happy for my closest dearest friend with the recent good news of being 10 weeks pregnant. In quest for baby with my wonderful handsome husband, my friend and my rock through all of this baby making activies!
