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 after a m/c and emergency c-section.

My husband and I have a 13 month old son and we have been TTC since he got back from his third tour in Iraq. We have done everything that the doctors have said, taking my temp in the morning, charting my cycle, sex everyday and every other. I have a previous m/c and our son was born by emergency c-section after I was in labor for 10 weeks and I'm starting to worry that scaring might have something to do with the problems we're having. I've been told I need to relax that it will just happen but it hasn't and I'm getting really discouraged. My doctor says she can't do anything for us till we've been trying for over 12 months but everything I've been reading says at six months of TTC without conception that we should see someone just in case something is wrong. Does anyone have any ideas that might help my husband and I give our son a little brother or sister?

About ready to give up.

We have been TTC for about 4 years now. To be honest I have kind of lost track of how long because it gets so discouraging and depressing to have had been TTC for over 48 times and always had to deal with the arrival of AF 48 times. I have m/c twice and they were very difficult and painful. My doctor sends me to specialists but they all say they dont know what the problem is and I should just relax. My hubby seems to feel the same way and just says to not worry about it and it will just happen on it's own. But after 4 years is that really a realistic point of view? He doesn't want to talk about it and I end up sad and very isolated feeling. It was great to find this forum and see that there are alot of other women going through the same thing. I came on this website to track AF so that I could be prepared and it was great to find that it is so much more.

Now I'm sitting here feeling the early signs of cramps and thinking about giving up and maybe adopting (also a difficult subject to get him to discuss).

Anyways, thanks for posting your stories for me to read and thanks for letting me rant, it's probably AF causing my mood. ;)

Round 6...

I had the Mirena IUD removed in June and waited one cycle to really start ttc. I've notice since I've had the IUD removed, I've had more noticeable PMS symptoms than before the IUD. They're so extreme that for the last couple times I thought I was pregnant for sure only to have AF pay an ugly visit. Well, my cycle is running @ 34 days & I ovulated on/around Dec. 20/21 & AF is due in three days on 01/05/10. Yesterday I was nauseated as heck all day long & today my bbs are so sore it hurts to even look at them...lol. I've had these symptoms before (but never this extreme) since we've been ttc, but always resulting in a BFN & AF a couple days later. I'm afraid to get my hopes up only to have the dreadful visit from AF. I also had some very mild cramping off & on last week but no spotting. Anyone have an opinion?

Coffee and Conception

Only on Cycle 3 of TTC, and have cut my coffee consumption A LOT!

I used to drink about 6 cups a day. I've cut this in half, and some days may only have 2 cups of coffee.

As a substitute I've being having herbal teas and ordinary tea, or just water/squash.

I'd really like to get others views on whether coffee consumption has affected their conception/ovulation.

Any info gratefully received!

Baby Dust to all

coping with PCOS and counting on METFORMIN

Well here goes my story......I have been TTC for over 5 years. When I was 25, before I met my husband, my ex and I TTC. No avail, we split, but not because of that. Then I met my husband when I was 27 and after a year of being together we started TTC. Since then I have become somewhat hopeless at times. Last year in April my gyno diagnosed me with PCOS and prescribed me some metformin and I try to take those religiously. I've noticed one thing though, I am starting to ovulate. I am noticing creamy stuff around my ovulating period. I'm happy about that. I know for awhile I haven't noticed anything like that in awhile, hopefully this year I will conceive.

I don't do any of those charting stuff. I don't want to stress myself out with this, so I choose not to. I am ready to become a mother. I am 31 and now is a very good time to get pregnant....I think so. Let's just hope God thinks so too!

Hoping to give birth in 2010

Ok I am thirty-one and have no children. My husband has kids but we want one together.I had an ovary removed a few years back and was told not to worry I would still be able to conceive. We have been trying since July 09 and still nothing. However my cycles are regular and we bought an otc fertility test kit and I seem to be ov on a regular basis.I am getting a little down about it.Maybe God isn't ready for me to have one yet...who knows. All my friends have kids and and one is pregnant now. We are all in our thirties.I am just anxious about finally having my own child.Anyone have any advice or words of encouragement.
