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 feel like a complete ogre at times

My DH & I have been TTC for 1.5 years. And I HATE my friends right now. All of my friends are either have kids or are pregnant right now. I wish I didn't hate them, I love them as friends still deep down but on the surface I hate them. I am completly heartbroken every month, some months worse than others. I had an ovarian cyst 9 months ago that made my period 45 days late. It was the worst because I kept thinking maybe this is it. I kept taking tests and getting BFN but I also kept reading about women who's pregnancies didn't show up on HPT's so I kept hoping and praying and then no, it was a stupid cyst, and it went away on it's own so I am grateful for that but still nothing.

So I scrapped myself up and dusted off and bam next thing I know 4 people pregnant at work. I had to sit here watching them everyday, have everyone asking me, are you next are you next. Now they all have babies, I am still trying. Now this cycle is totally messed up. I am almost a week late, BFN's on the HPT's I feel like I might have a cyst again and today feel like I am getting a Kidney infection. The hits keep coming.

I can't help but just cry my eyes out everytime I see a baby on tv, I start crying when I am looking at magazines. My DH is worried about me and knows I am completly depressed. It's awful. I got pg once very easily when I was 19 but I had a MC. Now it's like everyone around me keeps saying how easy it was for them. Oh we weren't even trying. UGH I want to punch them in the mouth.

And the Relax crap. I want to scream everytime they say relax, go on vacation, have you tried this or that. YES I HAVE, just SHUT UP. Now I am sure they all think I am the worlds biggest BIATCH and I really don't care anymore. I just want one thing in my life to come easily instead of fighting for it tooth and nail.

Trying for a year

I can definately relate....My hubby and I have been trying for a little over a year now and we have a 3 year old that took us 9 months to conceive. I hate the relax speech as well, I feel relaxed and I am so ready as the clock is ticking. I thought the second time around would be a piece of cake but not so much! Going to the DR tomorrow to check out our options. The most frustrating thing is that we have been using the 200 dollar ovulation predictor and it still isn't helping!

I can definitely relate

I can definitely relate I've been trying for a little bit over a year and we are beyond frustrated, I guess cuz we've been together for 9yrs and we're finally and it's just not happening right now. My friends keep telling me "not to think about it and it'll just happen" and it's hard to just not think about it, I mean it's something we want and it seems so easy for others but not us...We've both been to the fertility doctor and apparantly I don't ovulate every month apart from that everything is okay with us, We've been seeing the fertility doctor and he's confidant that he can help us conceive. Everyone and their mother is due in September soooooooooooo.... We're in everyones prayers including our own, but it's just really tiring now...sometimes I feel less of a woman, I try not to get there but given the situation it's hard at times...But Same to you keep your heads up and best wishes

trying to get pregnant and it all ends the same

Me and my husband have been married for a little over a year now and we have been trying for over two years now to get pregnant and nothing seems to be happening,

I have been off birth control for 2 years come November but still nothing, there was at one point we thought we were pregnant because I had no periods and I had gained weight but after a doctors visit we were told that we were not and it may have been the stress of trying to get pregnant that caused me to miss so many periods I have been going to doctors appointments one after another and my doctor keeps telling me everything is okay just keep trying and I have it took my husband almost three yrs to get his ex pregnant could it be him

it helps a lot to see that I am not in this alone and I know that there is hope and I know that very soon all of us will be blessed with our little bundles of joy, to all of you out there keep your head and your hopes high, you all will be in my prayers, good luck and god bless

Why Can't We Get Pregnant?!!

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over 2 years now. When we visited the doctor last year, it was determined that my hormone levels were normal. The problem is my husband has below-average sperm levels and his motility levels are low. We have held off from seeing a fertility specialist because it costs so much. Although I love my husband dearly, I am starting to resent him. I come from a large family and 5 new infants were born into my family within the past year. I get so frustrated because my family members constantly ask whether we are pregnant yet. One cousin and her husband had problems conceiving for nearly 2 years and have been blessed to have 3 children. When she was going through this difficult period, I was sympathetic and always gave her a shoulder to cry on. Now that she is a mom, she has joined the ranks of my insensitive family members and asks me whether I am pregnant yet whenever we speak. I have repeatedly told her that she would never have to ask me whether I was pregnant because I would be shouting it from the rooftops. I have just been feeling so low and resentful of others who have been blessed with children.
