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?

Some people should not breed.

My biggest problem is the people who have no business having children who keep on having them. It's not fair!

Conception frustration too!

Well my husband and me have been trying for over three years and nothing. And we are told by the DR. that my menstrual cycles are within the normal range and they can not find anything wrong with either of us. We even went to a specialist and we were told we can try in vitro but it costs so much money. I would do anything, but I know money wise it is not possible.

I am not getting any younger and I asked the DR. about any drugs that could help and he responded that if all is normal there is nothing he can do. Boy, I never thought that being normal as a bad thing.

But every month we try and I hope and pray that this is the month but nothing just my period. I have to admit it hurts to see other woman with a baby and knowing that I will not have the blessing in my life!

It is hard for my family to accept that I may never have children for my sisters have no problem having children. I have seven nieces and nephews! I wish I understood why I was not giving the chance to bring a little one into this world.

6 months trying...

My Fiance and I have been trying to have a baby since December 2006.

It is now July 2007 and "nothing". Every month we go to work, especially on my fertile days and ovulation days. There were months where I would feel like I was pregnant. In June (last month) my period was really late. My Fiance started to get excited and so did I. We were thinking that we were finally going to have a baby after 6 months of trying. Nothing. Later the next day I got my period and I was so upset I had told myself I was going to stop trying. I am tired of trying until this point but I know I cannot quit. I want a baby so bad. I love my fiance and I know that it will happen soon. I hear and see these women getting pregnant,even young girls and that makes me feel really bad. The only thing that worries me is being concerned if I am ovulating each month or not. No matter what, I am still trying. The only thing I can advice is to keep trying.

Exhausted

My husband and I have been trying for a little over a year. Every month I feel as though I have the symptoms of pregnancy - and last month, I felt like I had them all...but I started my period. For the past 4 months I've been 7 days later than the last, but my ovulation never seems to be when the calculators predict. Ovulating Predictor Kits don't work at all. My basal body temperature never seems to have a real significant rise and fall. My doctor finds nothing wrong with me, and won't consider any action until we've been trying for 2 years. It seems every time I talk to someone, we find out someone is pregnant. My sister has been trying for 2 months longer than I have (she's 38, I'm 31) and she JUST got pregnant... since she and I were late, we both had the same period last month, and I was having the same symptoms she was, we got excited about being pregnant together. But no...she is, I'm not. Not that I'm not ecstatic for her, but I get so disappointed... I'm especially tired of hearing "When you stop thinking about it...you'll get pregnant." That frustrates me even more...How do I stop thinking about it?? Everywhere I go, someone asks me if we are pregnant yet. (Note to self, stop telling people you're trying to get pregnant...then they can't ask.) We're exhausted... but not giving up.

A little positve note...

Hey Everyone, I just wanted to drop a quick note to say "keep your chin up," this is an art, not a science. Be patient with yourselves, and for your own sanity, ask people to stop inquiring after your "status" and let them know that they you will let them know as soon as you can. The added pressure of parents' and friends' emotions is enough to put your stress level into overdrive...not a good recipe for conception. Best of luck to all!

I hear you!

I have been off the pill since August of '05, and since he works away a lot, we don't have a lot of ample egg time. We officially timed the last "try," but I greeted my menstrual cycle bright and early once again this morning. I am 30, and waited intentionally to have kids. Now what? Grrrr... frustrating. Seriously am starting to think of the man as a sperm donor, and don't want to be near him unless it's the three days before ovulation. Not fair to either of us. Man, this isn't easy.
