So many hugs to you. I remember what that feels like. I remember when I was diagnosed with PCOs and told I would never conceive naturally. I remember crying in car on the way home from the doctors. Its tough but it only makes you stronger. Infertility SUCKS. I’m sorry but it does.NO matter how long or how short you have been trying it SUCKS. I don’t want to depress you or make you feel worse. BUT find someone to talk to about it., a support group, a family member , a close friend. And most of all try to stay positive as hard as that may seem your goal may be closer then you think. I thought I would never get pregnant and now I’m chasing a 1 year old around my house. It will happen for you it my just take longer then you think.

swarlsbarkley :  PCOs varies alot from case to case. I don’t ovulate one my own. Basicly no regular cyles for me without the help of birth control or meds of some sort. Are you going to have ultrasound? Because I know when they suspected it in me they gave me aditonal blood tests and a ultrasound. Take it one step at a time. Modern medicine is awesome. Best of luck to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

swarlsbarkley :  So many hugs to you. I can feel your frustration and pain. I lost my last pregnancy at 13 weeks. It felt like a betrayal, because that’s what women are born to do. Right? All we can do is keep the faith – turn to your husband. Not away from him. Let him comfort you. You’ll be an amazing mother one day, the journey to get there may just be a little bit more difficult. <3

Hi there. 7th month ttc for us too. I’m also 29 and we’ve been together 11 years as well. 12 years in Feb! No accidents either. I just want to know if I could even get pregnant! I think, for me, that’s the most frustrating part. Anyways, hang in there ๐Ÿ™‚ things happen for a reason. Miracles take time!

swarlsbarkley :  I have. I ended up going to ny obgyn earlier on, around the 3rd month, and gotten some tests done. All has come back normal but apparently I o later than usual so my eggs are subpar. I’ve been on femara for the past 3 cycles and got a requisition for an HSG and the fertility clinic (not sure why for this). Darling Husband on the other hand hasn’t gotten tested yet but is going if we’re still not pregnant by this cycle.

I just want to say, I know exactly how you are feeling. I only ever wanted to be a mom and I waited SO long for the right time to ttc. After we got married, I was obviously dying to start trying but I agreed with Darling Husband and decided to wait one year to start. Well when that year was upon on I was never so excited and figured it would happen right away, if not in the first three months. Well months came and passed and I wasn’t getting pregnant. I heard alllll the same comments as you, and had friends get pregnant their first month too. Life didn’t seem fair. It caused a strain on our relationship, and many arguments… having to bd on a schedule when some nights you just don’t want to do it is hard. I can honestly say we had our WORST fights during those months. I went to the drs around 9 months and voiced my concerns and she responded by saying I’m young, and that she wouldn’t start any testing until we reach 1.5 years of trying. I got teary eyed and left feeling angry. That was the month I gave up.. I decided that if it hadn’t happened, it wasn’t going too and I might as well wait till my dr agreed to do testing. Well… low and behold, that was the month I got my bfp. I continued to have problems throughout my pregnancy, had a hard labour and delivery, and delivered a little babe with some health complications. He is three weeks now and i still felt that life is so unfair… those people who got pregnant their first try, also had easy breezy deliveries and a perfectly healthy baby. But in the last couple of days I’ve also come to the realization how much I appreciate life. How much I appreciate our sweet boy.. I know it sounds cliche but i think these obstacles along the way have made me a stronger person, and has made our relationship so much stronger. People say a newborn will test your relationship and you’ll argue a lot… well we haven’t argued once. Nothing is phasing us at this point… we’ve been through a lot and well make it through this.. and so will you. If you want another story of hope.. my sister also struggled. Two whole years and no baby… she had about 12 rounds of chemo therapy in her teen years and the drs told her that that could have affected her fertility. Well she gave up hope, booked an apt at a fertility clinic to do IVF but the first avail apt was three months away. She got pregnant within those three months. All I’m trying to say is i know how youre feeling… like if it hasn’t happened yet, it can’t.. but it could! Reflecting back, I have promised myself to approach TTC (for round 2) with a more patient attitude.. and enjoy it as much as possible… enjoy my dh.. and know that it WILL happen. sorry for the huge post … but had to share.
