My husband and I have been trying for a baby for a little over a year now. I discovered in December that I have PCOS and did 5 months on Clomid. It turned me into a bit of a weeping mess. I took a month or two off taking fertility drugs and got some perspective. I just started on another drug and I was CERTAIN I was preggers this month until this morning when AF showed up. Im distraught. I'm so sick of getting my hopes up. I don't want to discuss this matter with anyone, I dont want to feel pressure from others and I really dont want my husband to feel like I'm getting obsessive. He is supportive and sweet but I dont think he fully understands what I feel. I glad to have an anonymous opportunity to vent some of my feelings, knowing that perhaps others understand. Im worried that this business of trying to concieve could harm my wonderful marriage, I'm afraid that it's soaking up time I should spend enjoying my life. I'm definately starting to become difficult to deal with. I've formulated a 5 point plan for the next three months. It goes like this ( hope someone else uses it and it works for them too). 1. Starting now I'm going to stop feeling sorry for myself (I have lots of things to be thankful for, I'm going to try and remember ten of them every time I start getting bummed) 2. I going to take the medication for the next two months and if nothing happens I'm taking two months off to enjoy life. Those medications are excellent at ovulation induction but they definately mess with your moods. 3. Next time my AF is due I'm going to intentionally remove all the calendars in my life, hide my diary and forget about what date it is. 4. I'm going to plan something nice to look forward to every month, when I get my AF - a massage, a bit of shopping or dinner out. I'm not going to sit around like a miserable wreck and cry about it (like Im doing now) 5. I'm going to visit friends who have out of control, screaming toddlers to remind myself about how they are not actually that wonderful.View Thread
