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?

1 Year TTC

I'm so excited! I haven't been able to get AF for the last year (PCOS) and after a few attempts with Clomid, a DNC and then Clomid again, I finally got AF! We finally found a dose that works for me. This is the first time in 10 months I have gotten AF without Provera. So HOPEFULLY I'll get pregnant this month. Fingures Crossed!

Frustrated and seeking more patience

So my husband and I never really saw eye to eye when dealing with ttc. I was ready and rearing to go 1 1/2 years ago and he wanted to wait until 2011-2012 to start! Men dont understand how long it could take to even concieve! Well recently he had a drastic change of heart(had to be a miracle from God! haha) and we started about 2 months ago. He wants to be non-chalant about it and I'm now all into tracking my cycles and every little "symptom" is my moment to become obsessed. Im frustrated for many a reasons and I just want to vent. For one my period is confusing and irregular, Im not even sure how long my cycle length truly is and I dont want to miss that key window of ovulation! 2nd I have had such interesting experiences this cycle different from my past cycles. Ive tested on sunday afternoon and of course, a neg. Not sure if its all in my head or if I should waste another test before I miss my feb period or wait? and my final silly fuel for venting is my dear and darling cousin just got married 7 months ago, love her so much. She has always stated no ttc until 2011-2012 (her and my husband should be together! ha) and I'd be on my 2nd by the time she starts. Well of course shes 2 months along now and I must do my best to seem so happy for her an be intersted and involved in all the pregnacy and mommy to be convos my fellow mommy cousins/fiends have and her all about her symptoms and her "I cant believe this is happening, so not planned" shpeel. Ugh what a frustrating time it is ttc. I'll tell ya patience is a true virtue through this whole process!
I wish it would just happen once you actually try but of course life is never that simple.
Well, Wish me luck!

I cant sleep

So its a little after 6am(i work night shift) and I cant sleep. My AF was due yesterday and hasn't shown yet. I took an early test on saturday and got a BFN so I'm thinking since I'm a day late I should take a test this afternoon when I get up, that is IF i ever get to sleep. Frankly I'm scared to take another test because I just know I'm setting myself up for disappointment but waiting and not knowing is driving me crazy. Right now Im having no symptoms. About 1week PO I had swollen and tender BBs, constipation, gassy and some cramping. This lasted for about 5 days and then all the symptoms just disappeared. I don't know what would be better, wait a few days and get my hopes up, or take the test today and get it over with.

Possible Early Miscarriage?

My DH and I have officially been ttc for the last few months. I originally thought that it wouldn't be too difficult- go off the birth control and then a month or two tops we'd be on our way.

Unfortunately nothing has gone so simply. For the last few months I have been tracking my period and BBT and last month I began tracking ovulation. My cycle for the last 5 months have been 30 days exactly. I was charting my BBT sporadically and testing ovulation every day. My period for this month was scheduled to start on the 25th of january. In the previous months I was never really able to detect any changes in my CM, but this month I noticed "egg-white" on the 16th and the 17th. I also took ovulation tests and it was positive both days (days 22 & 23 of my cycle). My husband and I BD'd on the 15th and again on the 17th. My BBT on the 18th also shot up .8 of a degree.

I tested on the 24th which was the day that my period was due and it was BFN. On the 25th I experienced the sharp prick that I usually get an hour or two before my AF makes it's appearance, but nothing showed. Same pain on the 26th accompanied by my typical period cramping but again nothng and no sign of AF. I had no nausea or constipation but a lot of bloating and gas. I tested again on the 26th and again BFN. Tested again on the 29th and BFN. Finally late yesterday (the 30th) I had some cramps followed by my typcial period flow.

I'm really confused because my period has not been that late before and I hadn't changed any patterns (same stress, diet and everything). I really feel that I could have been pregnant but because I ovulated so late the HCG wasn't high enough in my bloodstream yet. I was thinking that sharp pains around my period time could have been from implantation, but I'm really not sure.

Totally depressed and bummed over this. Does anyone have any thoughts or similar experiences?

I was diagnosed with PCOS, and then put on metformin. The doctor has told me that if I don't get pregnant in a year he will try fertility pills. I am a little scared though. I hear that when you are put on fertility pills you can have multiple births. I don't want to have more then one. I already have a little girl, and all I want is a boy now. Did anyone who was put on fertility drugs have multiple births? (pregnant with twins or more) Also twins run in the family, so does that increase my chances of have more than one baby?
