nowmarriedgirl : I don’t remember if it has or not.. 🙂 but as much as I know that it can take up to a year, I’ve also read that those stats are based on data from hundreds of years ago. I read recently that when not just having unprotected sex, but timing and knowing your cycle, 90% get pregnant within 6 months..
So that was a little rough to read.. I know it’ll happen, it just doesn’t make sense why it hasn’t yet.. on cycle 12 now with clomid. Fingers crossed! Thank you!
nowmarriedgirl : we do EOD usually days 10-20. I’ve been pretty consistent day 17 for the first 6 months and day 14 for the last 5 months. If I use opks or scan myself and know O day, then we will usually do lh surge day plus the next day also, so at the LEAST we do EOD from days 10-20 🙂

We have been ttc for 20 months and i have 2 chemical pregnancies and one miscarriage during that time under my belt. I am currently 9 weeks pregnant and -knock on wood- so far so good. We went through testing and found that we are perfectly healthy so our miscarriages just seem to be bad luck. It’s tough. The waiting is tough, the unsolicited advice is tough, seeing loved ones get pregnant so easily is tough. My only advice, some that i had trouble following sometimes, is spend this time being extra loving towards yourself. I spent so much time resenting my body for failing us and at least mentally and emotionally, it wasn’t until i focused all my energy on eating well, working out and spending one hour per day on myself that i felt like i was making peace with where we were. I started gaining this new found respect for my body and realizing how strong and capable it is in so many ways. I also believed in my heart that we would be parents one way or another so i would tell myself that every day was one step closer to us expanding our family. Now that i am pregnant again, i feel like i am constantly holding my breath, just waiting and praying. This baby making thing is no joke. Lean on groups like these when you need support. I hope your baby’s around the corner.

zoey0317 : Thanks! This month we decided to do things a little differently. I made it our goal to BD every day instead of EOD. I read some of the literature and based on what I found, if there’s no sperm problem, then every day can potentially be better. We don’t know if there’s a sperm problem, but the way I see it, EOD hasn’t gotten us anywhere so we should try something different. Also, since I work a lot of nights/evenings, a goal of every day occasionally still means EOD. We also started earlier than usual. I felt some ovulation pain last night (but again, who knows, since I’m not temping). Generally, though, it’s been about 16 days from when I feel ovulation pain to when I start my period. That puts me on track for a breakdown on June 30, so it’s good I’m off that day.

Thanks for sharing ladies, nice to read some happy endings. Like zoey0317 said reading the stats definitely gets me down, but now that we’ve gone through the testing and know everything’s OK, it’s just playing the waiting game. Know it will happen, just a matter of when and as our doc said, how many hoops we’ll have to jump through to make it happen. Hopefully not too much longer

My parents tried for 14 years, and were pushing 40 when I was born. I know that’s not what you want to hear, but there’s hope!

im gong on 10 months as well. So i feel your pain, im holding out for this cycle, and if i dont get a BFP im going back to the obgyn. I know a year is standard, but my obgyn told me to come back in May. Which due to a crazy work schedule didnt end up happening, so now im holding out till august to finally go back.
ill agree with you on its driving me crazy, EVERYONE around me is pregnant or just gave birth. Its annoying.
