Conception Frustrations II?

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?

I so want to bust out in tears!!!!!!!!!!

After years of trying to conceive and having surgery to remove uterine polyps, just when I was finally referred to a fertility specialist and get prepared to have the Artificial Insemenation now now I find out I have PCOS. This is extremely fustrating. I don't know how much more of bad news I can take.

Hints for Figuring Out Ferning

Hi everyone! I bought the Fertile Focus Saliva Ovulation Test. It seemed pretty simple and I thought it was going to make figuring out my ovulation dates so easy!

I have been using the test for the past month and I swear the test has shown no ferning every single day. And I'm pretty sure I o'd because I had a positive opk and a bbt spike. I followed the directions on the box!!

Does anyone have any hints for figuring this out?

Can you have a chemical pregnancy and not get AF?

Can anyone have a chemical pregnancy and not have AF? I"m late, by about 4 days now...and FR is giving me all positives, but the dr. said the urine test was neg.
I had a blood test and they said there was the hormone there, but it was enough to " qualify" it as a positive...yet.

They told me to come back in 2 weeks and see if it was a positive then. I'm getting lots of word that it could be a chemical pregnancy. All the clearblue tests I take are negative, but ALL of the first responses are positive, and with a rather dark line...
I don't feel AF coming at all...if it doesn't come, is there still a chance i'm still pregnant?

The thing is my last AF was March 7-9, i'm at day 32, and still nothing. I want to cry this is so frustrating.

Cycle confusion

So my hubby and I have been trying to conceive since Oct'10. I have been off BC since July'10. This month my OPK was high on 3/28 and 3/29. We did the BD on the 28 and a few times before. My cycles have been around 34-35days. On the 3/30 I got spotting and have had bleeding every day since (not enough to need a pad). I saw the OB on the 5th and she didn't seem concerned with it. AF had been lasting between 11-17 days prior to this. Unfortunately that started after my car accident in October. Normally I am a 4-7 day cycle. AF isn't to arrive until 4/9. They did a preg test in the office but it was neg. She recommended trying again on the 9th. Is this my period I am having immediately following ovulation or could I be lucky this month? Has anyone else had this problem? HELP!

Positive, not positive, yes or no?!?

OK so I have now taken 7 pregnancy tests at home, all different brands, and they all did the same very faint line...I went to the doctors to confirm, and his urine test came back negative! How could a home pregnancy test come back positive and doctors come out negative/???

He is now sending me for a blood test case he said I do have all the correct symptoms, this is beyond frustrating!

confused and sad:(

Hi Ladies sorry it is so long have to vent:

I went to see my fertility Dr. on Thursday March 17th for my HSG test (everything came back normal). He had told me to baby dance on the 12th day of my cycle and to continue for the next 5 days, b/c he assumed I was going to Ovulate either Sunday, March 20th or Monday March 21st (yesterday).

I started doing my OPK testing on the 13th day of my cycle (Friday March 18th) and up until today still no positive LH surge. My Dr. said that not all the time do these tests pick your ovulation, but it says on the package they are 99% accurate hmmm...

My husband and I have a test scheduled for this Friday (which will be day 20 of my cycle) to have blood work done and he is having a semen analysis (sorry if I spelled wrong).

My concern is if and fact I ovulate either tomorrow or Thursday, by then it will be too late to baby dance. The semen analysis requires that a man doesn't do anything for 3 days prior to the test (so tonight will be our last chance unless Dr. cancels our tests).

I sent my Dr. an email explaining my concern and what we should do. I am afraid that all those days we baby danced isn't going to work.

In the past we have never baby danced on the day of ovulation,just b/c something was always going on that we couldn't. So we only would baby dance a few days or day before. I know sperm lasts up to 72 hours, so all that time I still was hopeful, but no such luck.

My Dr. mentioned possibly putting me on Clomid to help me ovulate on time each month. I am hoping he does, so I don't have to be off wack every cycle.

anyone have similar situation or advice?
