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?

When do you stop TTC?

We have an almost 9 year old son, and have been TTC #2 for 5 years and 1 month. I've taken clomid for 4 months and had to IUI's (were very painful). DH has low count.

It has gotten so hard lately, when do you stop TTC? I try not to think about it, but its hard not to. I feel like everyone around me is getting pregnant, even when they weren't even trying to.

My wish is that one day, I can be truly happy when someone tells me that they are pregnant and not go into crying fits. I'm so tired of people telling me that when we stop TTC that is when we will get our BFP...I want to yell, "HELLO 5 years later, you tell me what I'm doing wrong!"

Sorry, I just got the news that one of my friends is pregnant with her third. This is the second person in the last few days that I've found out about.

TTC is a disappointment some times.

My husband and I have been married a year he deployed for 6 of those 12 months and when he came home we were trying to conceive in June I took two test at two different times of day that came back pregnant only to go to the doctor and found out we werent. Now we had 6 months together and still trying but still no baby. He deploys again in August of next year and we want a pregnancy before he leaves. Now yes I am showing symptoms of pregnancy but honestly what if it was like in June and July and I am not really pregnant? I see everyday everyone one I know getting pregnant and having babies I want my own. When will it happen. Everyone is like "when are you going to have a baby, It will happen it just takes time, dont worry about it things will work out?" So when will all those people stop telling me the same old crap and understand that they have kids already they dont get it. Or How about the ones who have 2 or more children. NO offense but you already have children so why can you stop acting like you need a dozen more. I have some friends who have kids and they are like I want another one. And they are as bad as those who cant even have their first one. I would just like to have one or two and be happy with it. JUST SO FRUSTRATING!

And my cousin who had 5 kids was like I will be your surrogate mother like WTH thanks for rubbing it in my face. :'(

why does it have to be so hard?

hello everyone. I'm feeling really down today. My mind had convinced my body that i was pregnant so when AF arrived this morning i nearly lost it. I know i havent been TTC for very long (AF started again sep 8th after a year of waiting. last depo shot was aug '09) but it already seems like ages. one of my sisters got pregnant with twins 6 months after depo and another one of my sisters got pregnant by getting her shot 2 days late. To make matters even worse a 19 year old girl i work with just found out she's pregnant and is seriously considering abortion. It just seems like everytime i turn around someone else i know is getting pregnant unexpectedly and here I am doing everything i can to get pregnant and its just not happening for me. I am so frustrated that i just want to cry and give up.

Not end of world, but can feel like it

I think the most frustrating thing for me is people have a way of trying to make you feel better, by saying "well you can always adopt" or "there are so many people that have been trying a lot longer than you"...and while those things are true, it doesn't necessarily make me feel any better at this time. What I end up feeling is guilt for feeling sad about my situation. I think its normal, at any stage of TTC to feel sad when you take the test and it's negative. I have to work on that, allowing myself to feel sad, but not wallowing in it..without feeling guilty. It's not the end of the world, but it can certainly feel like it sometimes.
