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?

TTC for 3 years

I was on depo for 5 years and when i got married 3 years ago i stopped right away. The first year I didnt expect much cuz i knew it could take awhile. Then we started really trying for about 9 months. When nothing happened I decided to listen to the "experts" (my friends and/or co-workers who have like six kids each and didn't try or expect any of them) who told me I was "trying to hard" or "thinking about it too much". So for next year i stopped "trying" and decided to just see what happens. Still no luck. Now there are 4 girls at my job who are expecting and I have to stick a big fake smile on my face say congratulations and ooh and aww when they bring the precious little newborns into work to show them off when the whole time i just want to go sit in a corner and cry.

Ok I'm just pouting and feeling sorry for myself but it actually feels good to get that out.

Both Tubes Blocked...

I am very frustrated. I have blocked Fallopian Tubes. I had a lap done in August of 08 to clear the tubes and still have yet to have a pregnancy. I went to Clear Passage in January of 2009 and had another HSG 2 months later and it showed that my tubes were clear! Now, I had a HSG in December of 2009...My tubes are blocked again. ;-(. I do not have thousands of dollars to IVF like the doctor recommended because it is not covered through my insurance.

Help!!!! I need your words of encouragement, stories, remedies..in a natural or holistic way...

TTC over three years, feel frustated most days

We had been trying almost three years, this was August/September 09, (Nov 09 is the three year mark) and I got a postive HPT, I was esatic, but it turned out to be a chemical pregnancy. I was devasted at first, but that pushed me to go to the doctor. I always knew in my heart we would have issues conceiving, one of my greatest fears, I had some tests done and turns out I have hypothyroidism (genetic, my mom is hypo, my sister was hyper eventually had it removed), I suspected i've had it for years, but every test for it came back "normal". For those unfamiliar with thyroid it can cause a whole host of problems and, until recently anything above a certain number, 5, was normal, however it's changed in recent years to anything under a 3, mine was 6.085. My cycle has also ALWAYS been irregular, I started when i was 11 and had MAYBE one a year, I kept waiting for it to sort itself out, but it never did and my mom isn't the type of person that talks about that stuff (periods, sex, etc). I also was diagnosed with insulin resistence (now on metformin for that), taking into account all my issues, my dr. diagnosed me with PCOS, which I also suspect for a while i'd had (I do a LOT of research on the internet). I took Provera late december (hadn't had a period since August) and it worked, but then i had another one five days after the provera one stopped? I'm assuming it's my cycle resetting itself which is okay by me. It does seem like everyone around me has either gotten pregnant (sometimes twice) or given birth while we have been on this TTC journey. My mom has been relatively silent about grandchildren, though I know she wants some (my dad could care less) some of my other relatives have inquired (my cousin, who is to be a father in July and my grandmother), SO's mom however...asks us everytime she sees us. We have chosen not to tell anyone (except my best friend) so it's intresting trying to avoid that question, lucky for us we don't see her much.

Frustration!

A quick run down... started Depo in May of 2008, last shot Oct 2008, so it's been 15 months since the last shot... it's ridiculous, and overly frustrating... Everyone is getting pregnant that I don't think should, teenagers, married people that don't have jobs, just ridiculous situations... I've finally lost the 20lbs I gained since depo, and have kept it off, and I'm trying to eat healthier and flush any remaining toxins out of my body by drinking a lot of water and of course taking my vitamins... which things seem to help, after a few detox days my period will randomly start... like I started Dec 25, and was disappointed but decided to try harder to get healthier, and sure enough Jan 11 my period starts... not as heavy as it has been but it sure is a period, which gives me hope that this blasted shot is finally wearing off... that maybe next month we'll get a positive... No one really knows were trying... maybe a friend or two but we constantly get asked... when are you guys going to have kids? You've been married for a year and a half... you guys should give me a grand-daughter... you guys should have kids now... blah blah blah!!!! Frustrating!!!
