@Newbeg:  It is very disappointing when you dont get your BFP.  DH and I have been trying for 5 cycles and still nothing, but don’t worry it does get easier and you never know, you might get your bfp next cycle.  Are you charting or using OPKs?  They do help for some woman and it might help you also. GL and hang in there, girly, you will get your sticky baby!!!

I’m in a similar position, this is cycle number 2 and the first one nearly made me crazy. I hear that the first one is the worst until the much much later ones. It helped a lot when my super healthy, very fertile (4 kids before 30) mom took a year to get pregnant with the first.

I just keep telling myself that at long as the healthy baby is at the end of the tunnel, is it OK our individual tunnel is longer than others. It helps that my DH was ready for several months of trying well before I was.

Good luck!

It does get easier – I’ve been trying for 10 months… The best thing for me was taking control of the process, for example, using OPKs, tracking CM, and charting temps (the temp charting was a recent thing for me though). Also reading books about the process – for example the Impatient Women’s Guide to Getting Pregnant, highly recommended. Those things definitely helped.  But honestly, its hard not to get obsessed and dissapointed every month, this is a very hard and emotional journey but its true as PP said, it doesnt matter how long the journey is in this case, as long as there is a healthy baby at the end its worth it. And FWIW, statistically, the odds are on your side, I read that 85% of women who want to get pregnant do so within a year. And even if you don’t, we are lucky to have a lot of options and medical help if we choose to use it.
