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?

TTC for 24mnths

Hi there, I am new to this but have read the recent posts and completely understand. We have also been TTC for 2yrs and having had all the tests done, the diagnosis is unexplained so I am now on Clomid.

I am due to pop round to see a friend who has just had a baby but have discovered she has opened the invitation up to the other 2 friends with young children!!! Was sort of thinking I might be able to keep happy for one mum but not sure about 3!!!

Baby dust to you all, it is good to know I am not the only one

The waiting game

My Husband and I just got married in Feb. this is his first marriage and he has no children. I have two beautiful children already and in March we decided we wanted to have a child. I just knew I would be pregnant in no time because I got pregnant with my other children without even trying. I've been to my Obgyn who says because I was on birthcontrol pills it may take longer for me to conceive, but I knew a woman who skipped a pill and got pregnant. It has been a frustrating ride for me and my Husband but we just put our trust in GOD and try to wait patiently. Its so disappointing when I get (Big Red) my period but on the bright side we keep trying:)

months of TTC caused too much pain for me

We have been TTC for 16 months. For 16 months somebody we know announces they are preg. No one we knew was pregnant when we started TTC, no one had even voiced that they were TTC. For the last several months we have been getting pics of the newest deliveries. All the "we are expecting" and "we just had a ..." announcements have come as early as 4 days before my period started up to the day it started. We did have 2 mc and the wk before our first there was announcement (due in a month) and the wk after our second my nephew was born.

I decided to just let calls go the machine, not check email, MySpace, Facebook, anything that could end up breaking my heart the week before my period was due last month. Instead, I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in years and as soon as she turned around there was her 8 month baby bump. I just about broke down, it took everything I had to smile and congratulate her. I felt so hurt, there I was trying to avoid it only to have it shoved in my face. Then last wk we got the call she had the baby, another friend had a baby, and a friend that had a mc around our first mc was now 2 months. I told my husband I was done TTC. It's too hard having this thrust in my face month after month. No, my cycle is not over yet (will know on Saturday when it is due to start) but I am not getting hopes that high. I know that is very pessimistic but after 16 months of calling to the day the next announcement (and even the couple announcing) I am waving my white flag so I can try to move on and try to put all of this pain behind me or at least ease some of it. I believe God doesn't give us more than He knows we can handle but this time He gave me too much.

Scared for my First Appt. HELP!

I am going to my first appointment ever on Tuesday. I am SO nervous about getting things started. I am only 20 years old and fear that my family may be judgmental of my longing to be a mother. I am really nervous about my appointment for the same reason, I don't want the doctor to think I am being irresponsible. My partner & I have been together for 2 years without any success in becoming pregnant. If anything, I just want a period and to ovulate, it would put my mind at ease just to KNOW that if I want a child I can make it happen when I am ready. I feel like less of a woman since my period comes and goes when it pleases, I wish I could be like everyone else and determine when I am ready to be a parent, rather than go ask the dr. permission to make it possible.. I don't want her to look at me as crazy since I am concerned about these things at only 20. I just know in my heart if I don't start now that it will be YEARS before I can conceive, it may even still be years in starting now. I am just extremely nervous without knowing what the problem is. To sum up my issues, my period is extremely irregular, it comes and goes, ill get it then it wont come back for like 3 months --- or as long at 9, 10 months and so on. I don't even think that I can ovulate because if I did I am almost sure that I would have like...239842937 kids by now!!!

Is crohn's disease be keeping me from conceiving?

I have been TTC for 9 months now with no luck. I seem to have a pretty regular 30 day cycle (except during the 9 months one time was 36 days, and this month was 26 days). I'm pretty sure that having a regular period is associated with regular ovulation? I need some help trying to pinpoint when I ovulate. Keeping track of my cycles is not working. I tried the OPK and it did not work. I do not seem to be getting the physical signs of ovulation (ie. egg white like mucous).

I also have crohn's disease. Doctors said shouldn't be a problem, but I'm starting to think that this may be what is holding us back from conceiving. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

GRR, Standstill Due to Chemical Menopause

My DH and I have been maried for 8 years as of this last monday and have been TTC since Nov. 2002. It took 3years for a dr to take me seriously and 3.5 more years for them to do anything to help me. I had my 1st prg. in Sept. 06 early MC. I have hypothyroudism, endo and PCOS. I had a Lapro for endo/pcos in Feb this year. That resolved nothing. The Dr Started me on Chemical menopause in April of this year and he wants it to last 4- 6 months. I hate being at a standstil. I am so very frustrated.
