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?

Provera & 11 months TTC...almost ovulation time again...

I'm here with you girls...We've been trying for almost 11 months now, I went off the pill in late November. I know that isn't as long as some ladies have been trying, but for us, it feels like forever as I got pregnant with our first daughter in only 3-4 months and I wasn't even charting...probably didn't even know when I was ovulating back then! She will be 6 Monday, and I have had the baby bug for the past 2 years. We never imagined it would take so long, or we probably have started trying earlier. I am 26 and hubbys is 25, so we have some child bearing years ahead of us still (as everyone keeps pointing out), But I really want to be done by 27. So this is my last year in my mind...I will turn 27 next August, so that give us another 10 months...

My cycles are regular now, exactly 26 days...and have been for the past 3 months after some serious fluctuating before then. I took two months of Provera to regulate my cycles in May and June. Next doctor's appointment, we will be talking about trying Clomid. I hope Mother Nature works her magic for us this cycle before having to try more medications. I should be ovulating on my daughter's birthday, so maybe a little gift for us a younger brother or sister?? FX, LOBD to all of us trying :-)

Frustrations.

My man and I are trying for a baby. He's so excited about it he's told everyone what we're planning. Now not only am I worried that we're not getting it done right away, everyone is there to rub it in. I want it so badly but I have no answers. My period is mocking me by being late on purpose but every test comes back negative...I don't want to loose hope but I'm getting worn down.

i want to cry!!

This is my 4th month of TTC I have had some symptoms like nausea extremely emotional backache and most recent fatigue.....I guess I thought it would be easy because it only took me 4 months the first time.......according to my charts I'm not supposed to get my AF til 10\1 however did take a clear blue early detection HPT this morning and got a big fat negative...I want to cry! The waiting game is horrible...I'm not going to take another test until I'm actually late. Its just becoming so hard because I feel like there are babies and pregnant bellies every where !! I'm just gonna keep trying!!

TTC journey causing me to spiral into depression.

I just got my period last night and have just had a bawl fest :( I got off BCP in March 2010, got my period 25th March, then waited close to two months later for my next period: 1st May 2010. Then waited again and got my period on 28th July. And got it again today 13th Sept. I am seriously going crazy and getting so depressed. My husband travels a lot for work, sometimes 5 days in a row, sometimes 2 weeks, and next month he will be away for three whole weeks. I am harbouring resentment towards him as I feel that his work is to blame, and if we could BD on a constant basis, we could get lucky. But when he's home, he insists we BD ALL the time, which I've insisted will not help if he's away so much. He says that we never know and that something is better than nothing.

I got some bloodwork done to see if I'm healthy, and so far, I'm ok. It's not a fertility test tho, so I dont know details. Judging by my period dates, don't you think my periods are out of wack? To make matters worse, I live in Italy, where hardly anyone speaks English, and the medicaly system is SUCH a headache you won't believe it.

I am SO UPSET today, and I'm all alone at home, hubs travelling again. Though you may say that we havent been trying for very long, I feel like it has been AGES, especially since my best friend got preggers immediately after her wedding, and friends and family around me are popping babies like nobody's business. I go on Facebook to get off things abit, and what do I see, MORE BABY pictures everywhere. And then EVERYONES asking and hinting to us, I'm getting so pissed.

Am having period cramps now, and it's not helping, looks I'll just continue bawling. :( :(

High Estrogen Level

We have been TTC and I have now done 2 cycles of Clomid (Serophene). I developed some cysts which they said can go away on their own. This month my estrogen levels were too high so we are going to try without the Clomid. Has anyone experienced this on Clomid?

Out of Wack Cycles

heres my story: Got off BCP Dec '09, TTC Feb '10 - not paying attention to anything just BD (we have a 2year old we concieved the 1st month of TTC by just BD, so I didn't think I had to worry) anyway dec, jan, feb had 28 day cycles, then had one 39 days!!! so here we stop counting by months haha! then a 37 day cycle then a 36 day cycle then 34, 32 and now I've had a 20 and a 21 day cycle. this is my frustration! what on earth IS my cycle? My OBGYN says that I am ovulating if I am having periods, and that we should BD every other day (ex. day 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20). We have been BD more often than that most of the time but my husband works 4 nights on and 4 nights off, so our "schedule" gets thrown around. My husband is also a very "interested" 25 year old man - every other day sounds like a curse to him. I have not used BBT or Ovulation test strips, but I am seriously thinking about it. Anyone have something similar or some advice for me?
