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?

My Thoughts

That is so true, everyone around you seems to get pregnant but you can't. Both my future husband's mom and my mom are asking when are we going to make them gandparents; offering to do the neices hair to get practice and etc.

It's not really pressure in that sense, it just makes me feel crazy b/c we have been trying and we are both "soooo" ready to become parents and experience all the joys that come with it.

I have been to the doctor and my body is fine, she told me to keep trying for a year, that right there put more pressure on him to go get his sperm tested. I told him God will bless us when he is ready but we are both hoping thats its SOON!!

My DH and I have been trying for about 8 months. Since then almost eveyone we know is pregnant... Last night a girl I work with who didn't mean to get pregnant, who smokes, drinks and eats badly announced she was pregnant. I'm giving up on being good - I've led a saintly alcohol and chocolate free life for about a year and zip!

i hope baby comes soon!!

i think that pretty much the worst thing for me is that im a woman who has always taken exceptional care of my body, ive never smoked a cigarrette in my life ( or smoked anything for that matter), i dont drink very much, ive never done drugs, all for fear that i would hurt what god wanted my body to naturally be..so the absolute worst is when i see young girls who constantly do drugs and party and never sleep, and they sleep with some guy they dont even care about and then get pregnant..that hurts so badly because here i am, with a man i love and am spending my life with and we BOTH want a baby very badly and have been trying actively now for 7 months straight and still im not pregnant.

i think its quite possibly the worst thing to hope every month that "this is it, this is the month it will happen" and then you feel those symptoms that you know cant be anything other than pms..and you try and tell yourself its not pms, and then you get your period and it starts all over again next month, and its especially bad on months where your period is even a day late ( mine was this month) because it gives you this crazy, happy, giggly feeling of hope only to be crushed by seeing that first drop of blood.

at this point though im trying to be optimistic even though what i have written doesnt sound so cheery! i saw my doctor and she said that at my age ( 21) that my fiance and i should be pregnant with in a year,counting the 7 months weve already been trying.so i keep telling myself over and over in my head that with 7 months down, there's only 5 to go and 5 months is not a long time! i just keep praying, hoping to god that he and i will be the average just this once and that we will be given the amazing gift of a baby very soon because we would both love it more than anything in the world.

Everybody else but me

I have been trying for the last 3 years. I have gone through surgeries and all. Still nothing, it seems as if everytime my phone rings somebody was annoucing they were pregnant. I'm really not a selfish person but I tell you what I wish that it was me making that special annoucement. At times I feel like just giving up.

frustated& confused

It seems more like everyone around me is pregnant. I found out I was pregnant about 4 months ago, and ended up having a miscarriage, so we've been trying ever since. it seems like when i didn't want to be pregnant i was, and now that i'm ttc i can't seem to get pregnant to save my life.
