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?

Conception Frustrations II?

I want to cry

My husband and I haven't been ttc nearly as long as some people do yet I still just want to curl up and cry that it hasn't happened yet. We've been trying for just a few months but have been getting ready for it for about a year getting off of birth control, tracking my cycle etc etc.

This month I was sure I'd be pregnant I got what appeared to be spotting a few days ago. Than everything stopped but only for a day and now I have a light period.

Normally I wouldn't get upset over how long it's taking but when I saw my dr a few weeks ago he was actually concerned that we hadn't conceived yet because we have two girls and it hadn't taken us long at all to conceive them. I almost wish that my dr hadn't expressed his concern than it wouldn't upset me each month when it turns out I'm not.

Its just so frustrating especially when all of a sudden everybody we know is expecting. I actually broke down and bawled yesterday because friends of ours(well people my husband is close to at work), one of which is still married to her husband but is having an affair with another of our friends is pregnant! I just broke down at that, I love both of them but the fact that they're relationship isn't exactly kosher..just got to me and I want to throw in the towel!

Feeling discouraged and Alone...

My husband and I have been trying for six months. At 4 months, my period was late (only by a day). I was too anxious to wait another week to test. Took the digital HPT and it was positve. Took another HPT hours later, and it was positive. The next morning, I took another HPT and it was positive! I was sure that I was pregnant. Then 4 days later AF shows up. Yep. Turns out, it could've been a possible chemical pregnancy. Anyway, I am tired of TTC. I want to be the pregnant one. Each month, I get discouraged and heartbroken when AF comes. I have been wanting a baby since the day we got engaged, and now that we're trying, it's taken me longer than I ever would have expected. I know there are worse situations out there, but I am having a hard time. Anyone out there who can relate?

10 months of TTC going on to 11...

We have been trying for almost 10 months now, and I had a weird cycle this time around. It lasted 37 days which has never happened before. I have an average of a 29 day cycle. I was super hungry and thirsty. I would feel nauseous randomly, especially if I let myself get hungry. I had headaches that I NEVER used get. There were just too many signs pointing toward that BFP...except for the BFNs I kept getting. And then AF came and disappointed me. I was so upset at first that this wasn't it for me. But, I just reminded myself that it wasn't my time yet.

Even though I was just having some crazy PMS symptoms and for whatever reason was a week late, I am glad that I went through this experience. I think that my cycle was just going to be a couple of days later than normal, but I stressed myself out over being late and got into the "this is it!" mode too soon.

So, now I am waiting out AFs visit so I can get back to doing the BD. I hope that I will be back to a regular schedule next month so I can get the real BFP :)

Good luck and TONS of baby dust to everyone trying!

so frustrating

ttc is so much harder than i wouldve thought. my husband and i have been trying for 2 yrs now. it seems like you spend so much of your time trying not to get pregnant when youre younger and then when you want to it cant happen. 2 family members, 2 good friends, and 7 women i work with have all had babies in the past year. its so frustrating for me. and i try to be happy for them but inside im extremely jealous. i keep trying to stay positive but sometimes i just want to scream cause im so frustrated by it. to all the women out there trying, stay positive. something can always be done. and the right time will come for everyone

Stop asking people! going to lose it

I really wish people would STOP asking, Oh so are you guys trying ? What are you waiting, you're not getting any younger, you've already been married 2 yrs so ... are you yet are ???

STOP asking people .Come on.

I don't know what to say anymore it makes me more stressed about it and to make matters worse now my husband is getting those comments too and its stressing him out , he is starting to feel pressured , its not good for both of us to be sooo stressed.

One of these days I am going to flip out when I'm asked that question

Can anyone tell me how they deal with please?
