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?

Reallly trying to concieve

I'm trying to concieve a child with my boyfriend who already has a child he wants to have one with me being as though this will be my first one. I've tried all the positions and at home remedies that my friends told me about and still nothing. I get really sad when I think I'm pregnant only to find out that I'm not & it's getting really hard for him now because he thinks I will leave him if I don't get pregnant (I won't of course) but I do want a child of my own. I want to experience the joys of motherhood in every since of the word. I just don't know what to do anymore to get pregnant yet I keep trying and hoping that one day I will be before my biological clocks stops ticking.

2 mc's and doctor not helping!

Hi, it's comforting, (yet depressing at the same time) to see so many people with the same frustration of TTC. My problem isn't TTC but holding a pregnancy. I've always been a let's not plan and see what happens kind of person in life, and it worked well for us my first pregnancy, no problems whatsoever, well other than the unplanned c-section. I got pregnant two years later, only to miscarry a few weeks later. My doctor said MC happen to 1 in 4 people so not to stress about it (easy for her to say, when I had already told my son he was going to be a big brother). We started trying for real after that and go a BFP in April, this time I held the pregnancy for one more week than the last time, but lost it again. I thought the silver lining was that my doctor would take me seriously this time, but she still doesn't seem at all concerned. I really feel like something is off and want to get to the bottom of why. I feel like my life is on hold, because I'm always making plans for the upcoming months assuming I will be pregnant and then I'm not etc... I started showing right away this last time and actually went out and bought lots of cute summer dresses for my cute summer belly... Anyone have any ideas for making the doctor take me seriously? I live in Canada, so it's free to see the doctor as much as you like and get almost any testing you need, so I'm thinking about making appointment after appointment til she just gets sick of me?

Stressful times

Hi everyone,

I'm 31 and my partner (31 also) and I have been TTC since Apr 2009. We got preg in Dec 2009 but had mis/c in Feb 2010. Have had irregular cycles until the last cpl of months. My question really is: How do you not stress about this - it is so easy to become obsessed. I know this is not really helping stressing over it. Just want to know other peoples stories or views/opinions? Thanks and good luck :)

emotionally broken

well... AF came again. i am emotionally to the breaking point. only 1 1/2 month left till its one year of TTC. i just really dont understand why its so hard for us because we both already have kids. i am only 21 yrs old and my hubby is 27. i should be getting prego off the bat.
i feel like i am on an emotional rollercoaster. tomorrow i go to get an ultrasound i guess to see if there might be anything visibly wrong and then a dr appt next week. then on top of it all my hubby has to go get a SA. he is very embarrassed about it.
also, cause all this stress has got me smoking again which i know doesnt help things but its all i can do not to cry all day.
i found out yesterday that his ex, the mother of his 2 kids, is prego. i feel like i just cant give him what he wants. like i'm failing.
we have even tried the whole forgettig that we are TTC and do sponaneous things but still no luck.

Please not another m/c!!!!!!

TTC for 7 months now and I never thought it could be so tough! My first child was conceived first go around! grrrrr I've had two m/cs and now I have been spotting for three days, a week before AF is due!

My cup still feels half full since I had something that mimicked AF when I was pregnant with my first child, my husband confirmed that memory, thank goodness! And the m/cs were later, a week after AF was due, so since it's a week BEFORE AF is due, I am hoping this is heavy-ish implantation spotting, and not another m/c! I want another baby SO very badly.

I want more than one more, in fact, so I don't want to waste anymore time! I want a big family because my husband and I were only children and we felt pretty lonely growing up. Of course I don't want that for Aurora. I am so ready for this next baby! It's been four years since the last sweet little bundle arrived.

Please let this be our month! Every time I go to the bathroom, I dread seeing anything that resembles a full-blown period. Thankfully, there was only reddish cm the second day and not today. Hopefully that is a good sign. I dread BMs because I am afraid I will see blood! I don't like feeling this way. I almost wish I didn't track my periods, so I wouldn't know exactly what was going on because this sure is stressful. lol Oh well, that's life.

I am a lucky girl because I have one perfect angel and that is ultimately all I really need. I wish I could test for pregnancy, but I am afraid I will see faint positives like before and then suffer the feeling that I knew I had a m/c. Give me a break, Universe! These past two years have been so difficult for me and having a new baby would make life so much fun for my family. Aurora talks about all the things she will teach her brother or sister, and it stings right now knowing it might not be happening right now. Pray for me, please! Loads of Baby Dust to all my fellow frustrarians! xo
