Lately I’ve been feeling horribly sad about STILL ttc. Everyone around me is getting pregnant or having their babbies and all I want is to get pregnant. I’ve been taking fertilaid and it has helped me so much in the last 2 months and it has given me so much hope. I don’t know if I’m feeling this way b/c I didn’t get pregnant within the first month like so many other women. I’m wondering why it could help 100’s of women with severe pcos and not me. I can’t help but wonder if I’m physically able to get pregnant or if there’s something seriously wrong. Am I ovulating? Am I broken?! It’s hard b/c I have no one to talk to about this. I know I haven’t been trying too long, I don’t even know how long to say anymore since I’ve only had 3 cycles in the last 6 months. So have I been ttc for 3 or 6 months?
I do horrible things to myself. I say things too my Darling Husband…”Oh, maybe by your bday I’ll be pregnant. Maybe by next (Insert Holiday) we’ll have a baby. Maybe the next time we visit I’ll be pregnant and we’ll share the news.” It just makes it worse when I turn out not to be pregnant.
On a good note…my cycle went from 80+ days to 48 days last month. That’s a major improvement, but now I’m just wondering if I ovulated? I know there’s strips or tests that you take, but my cycle is so long I have no idea when to test.
Thank you for reading my very long pity vent. I have no idea what I would do without the Hive!

perhaps you could see a fertility specialist or a gynecologist? could you also try the natural family planning method of taking your temperature every morning when you wake up? It’s supposed to be an accurate way to find out if you are ovulating.

If it makes you feel any better, most women don’t actually conceive the first month they try. You just hear about it because they are marvelling.
I agree with the PP. I assume you’ve been talking to a doctor, but if not, that is the best thing you can do, especially if you’re frustrated and don’t know what else to do. Maybe they can help your cycle become more regular?
I really hope it happens for you! Best wishes!

@JewishBride:Very true, the % of people actually conceiving the first month is quite low, it just seems that for those of TTC so long it seems all around us and we hear about it more. Have you had a TTC consult with your OB or even talked to your OB about your PCOS and TTC? I know you’ve only had 3 true cycles but you can count it as 6 mths of trying and I know the ladies I am with on the infertility thread, most of them have PCOS and have had f/u with their OB around this mark. It is ok to feel what you are feeling and do not let anyone else tell you different or things along the lines of “Relax, it will happen”. I would highly recommend a physician follow up to see if you can get your cycles regulated. Good luck and rooting for you!

@JewishBride: I absolutely feel for you. I’m in cycle 7 (month 9) of TTC and still nothing. And it’s so hard b/c my doctor won’t even talk to me about infertility until we’ve been TTC for a year. And you’re so right…it does seem that everyone around me has conceived within the first month of trying. My best friend is due to give birth in 2 weeks, and we started TTC around the exact same time. I would’ve hoped to have been pregnant with her at some point, but it’s just not going to happen…and that makes me even more sad.
Just wanted to tell you that you’re not alone…there are lots of others of us out there who haven’t conceived within the first month and are still going…

Thank you for all of your support. When I talked to my doctor he said that everything looks great and that it’s fine if I don’t have regular periods (I told him about the rest of my family). They’ve never had regular cycles and they each have at least 2 children. Except for my sisters…
Deep down I do feel like I’ll have children, I just wish it would happen soon.
@2PeasinaPod:Same here. The doctor wouldn’t talk to me about other options…just to keep going. I’m so sorry, it must be very difficult to see your friend go through everything:(

I’m sorry 🙁
I really hope you get what you so badly want. I can’t wait for the day that I get to see a post on the board that you are pregnant. We will throw a big virtual celebration for you 🙂
I’m thinking about you
