*hugs hugs hugs* I know…this TTC thing is THE worst. I thought waiting to get engaged was bad. Ha! In regards to your super long cycles, have you been to see anybody about it? Is there a reason for it that they have pinpointed or have even just guessed at? At the very least, you can arm yourself with some knowledge about how to use it to your advantage…

If I may make a suggestion, do something nice for yourself today. Maybe a foot soak, or a long walk, or an episode of your favorite TV show…. just some nice little treat. The hard days suck, but tomorrow will be a better day. hugs.

Agree with PP to treat yourself. I’m in a similar boat (haven’t really told our friends and family) and it’s so, so frustrating. All my friends seem to get pregnant on the first try!

Hope you get your BFP soon, but it’s okay to feel down about how long its taking.

juliette.eliza:  Hugs to you my dear. I know this stuff sucks, and I totally feel your pain on the long cycles. Mine are usually around 40 days, but I tried medicated IUI this last cycle and it messed me up so bad. I’m on cycle day 54 and taking prometrium to start my period. First time I’ve ever had to take meds to start a cycle and its so sucky waiting around when you want to be actively trying. My method for staying sane is that I am spending the next couple of cycles focusing on myself. I decided to skip fertility treatments for a while and to make regular work outs a part of my routine as well as cooking at home more and just focusing on feeling good and trying the old fashioned way. I think its a great idea to also treat yourself to something special on the down days. A massage, getting your nails done, a fancy bubble bath, or even wine and a good cheesy movie would be a nice pick me up. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you, and that you know you’re not alone!

Side note, I’ve had two co-workers who were told they had very little chance of becoming pregnant due to their medical history and one got pregnant by accident because she assumed she didn’t need to try and prevent with her diagnosis, and the other got pregnant the cycle before starting IVF. Good things do happen when you least suspect them!

I am 100% with you on pretty much everything you wrote! I’m struggling with long/absent cycles since coming off the pill 6 months ago. I totally feel you with how absolutely frustrating it is not to be able to even really “try” when you aren’t ovulating like in a normal cycle.  My two friends who have kids got pregnant ON the pill so I can def comiserate with you…my mom is helpful to talk to but thinks I should be married longer before trying anyways. I totally feel you about bursting into tears feeling frustrated that your body isn’t working. All my life all I have ever wanted to do is be a mom and now that I’m trying I am beside myself that my body isn’t working. I wish I had advice for you but mainly I just want you to know you are not alone!! Hang in there :/ the past 6 months have caused me a lot of tears.
