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 can relate to simple123

Simple123,

I know what you are going through. I was in your postion last october. When I found out my sister-in-law was pregnant I was happy then I thought to myself I haven't been feeling well so I took a pregnancy test and it came back postive so we were due around the same time just a week apart. At that point I just couldn't believe my husband & I got pregnant on our own that time, I had to take fertility drugs to get our first child. But I miscarried in Oct when I was 10 weeks but the baby had measured 6 weeks. I was so heart broken that I cried for weeks. I have PCOS it is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome so it is really hard for me to get pregnant without taking fertility drugs. But believe me my husband and I aren't giving up hope and I hope you don't give up hope to have your own little one soon.

The fleeting hope...and baby

I can totally understand your frustration as I am going through one right now.Infact, I had this experience just this am while talking to one of my relatives.

I have been dreaming of having a child since 1-2 yrs now.I tried to get pregnant last yr this time which i did in 2 cycles.But,unfortunately i had a early spontaneous miscarriage at 7 wks.I could`nt cope with this at all.To add on to this misery my sister-in-law,one of our closest friends and others in the work place got preganant and successfully gave birth to healthybabies.I am not jealous here but just describing the facts which one or the other way have affected my confidence.

I am hoping to get pregnant early next yr as i felt this yr was a bad start for me.Good luck to all those would be yummy mummies!!Life is good but then it feels bad all the time untill i have a bundle of joy in my arms....

In reply to the above post i would suggest to meet up with your GP to find out if there are any investigations needed as the criteria for referal to the specialist would be met in your case.

Good luck..

My Frustrations

I have been trying for almost 2 years to get pregnant. My husband & I were waiting until he was thru with school. But now that he is done and has his CPA, we cannot seem to be able to conceive.

It is really frustrating to me because I have both of my parents and his giving me a hard time and constantly asking if I am going to be giving them a grand child any time soon.

Right now it seems like everyone in my new neighborhood is pregnant. I hate going to church because there are so many women expecting. It has become something that is really hard for me to deal with.

My first baby spoiled me

I know I shouldn't be complaining, but I guess my clock is ticking louder than I thought. With my first I stopped taking the pill and bam got pregnant. So, naturally I assumed the same would happen when we started trying for a second. We have only been trying for a couple of months and I know I shouldn't even be talking. It is just a little frustrating. Especially when my sister tells me just relax which she is right, but I am having a hard time with that. I'm just glad nobody eles knows we are trying.

Completely Frusterated

I think the most frusterating thing is everyone around me has kids. Even the women that didn't even know they wanted to get pregnant did. I myself have wanted a child since I WAS a child and now that I feel I have all my ducks in a row it's not happening for us. We recently went through a miscarriage and it has just been an emotional rollercoaster all the way around. I almost feel like maybe I just wasen't meant to be a mom. I love kids I love playing with kids talking to kids even just holding them when they cry it is the only time I feel whole like I'm giving back something without even trying. I think it's hard because I am so happy for the women around me and in my life but selfishly I find myself saying "I wish it were me".
