I’m not TTC yet, but sending a hug your way!  This is Murphy’s law.  He should wash hands, avoid sick people, get enough sleep, eat healthy, and be up to date on vaccines.  Otherwise, not much you can do.  Hope it works out soon!

@missrain:  you are not alone. We’ve been ttc for 7 cycles…this will be 8 and we’ve had some very similar issues. We had out of town guests, I had to travel for work, I had to leave town suddenly b/c my sister who got accidentally pregnant was in labor, and he has issues finishing at times. It can be so frustrating and lonely. I feel all panicky if I’m going to O and we don’t have good timing and then I spend 2 weeks deciding if this pain or that cramp could mean what I hope it means. You are definitely not alone.

I’ve been having a tough time with this too, but honestly, I rather be in your position and at least know I’m ovulating and have a chance to even try.  I got off BC almost 4 months ago, got my withdrawal bleed and then one ‘normal’ period 4.5 weeks later I think and then nothing.  I’m on CD71 now, no sign of ovulating, or anything.

@missrain:  DH and I have been together for 12 years. His brother made a comment before we were even TTC and he said “Geez yall have been together so long, you should have probably had an oops baby by now, I hope nothing is wrong with you”…..well now that’s all I can think of. I have times where I seriously am mad that we waited to TTC until after we got married until after school and jobs and house. I know it’s irrational, but i keep thinking “we missed our shot”

@missrain:  sorry you are struggling – it’s not fun. if you do get to a year with no bfp, make sure you’ve kept track of the months that you were unintentionally ‘not trying’ so that you don’t get over-medicated or over-investigated for no reason – some medications can actually interfere with good baby-making 🙂 at the moment it looks like you’ve only been able to try 2 or 3 times in 6 months…

also, my hubby was often sick this year, because he has IBS and that seems to have killed off his immunity. My Naturo has been working on improving his health too, and he hasn’t had a cold since.

Good luck!

You are not alone!

We are on Cycle 3 of trying and I too feel like it’s never going to happen. My husband suffers from what the doctors can only label as “IBS”. He has a whole slue of issues and basically because the doctors are unsure of what it is, they unofficially ended up labeling it “IBS”. The problem that we have is that he is often in the bathroom for HOURS at a time. I do everything I can to make him aware of my fertile days. I remind him, mark it on the calendar etc. I was expecting him to be mindful of what he eats/drinks etc. during these VITAL days to help ease any symptoms he may have. Unfortunately it appears that I am wrong. He does nothing to increase his chances of being less symptomatic which ultimately results in us not having intercourse enough (or at all) during the fertile days. I am so extremely frustrated but feel bad blaming it on my husband as I realize he has very little control over the illness itself. I just wish he would understand my frustration and at least make an attempt to make it work.

Good luck and well wishes for a better year in 2013 to all those Bees TTC Smile
