My husband and I have been off protection for nearly 17 months now (since July 2010). I am getting so discouraged!! Especially since friends have since tried, been pregnant, tried again and now pregnant with baby #2. Some days all I can do is cry. I am 24 and my husband is 27, 28 in January. We are young and in our prime! What is wrong with me? I feel so defective. I have an appointment schedule November 22 to meet with a doctor for a "pre-conception counseling" appt (the OB/GYN I will be meeting with told me to specify the appt as such to ensure it was covered by insurance) and I have no idea what to expect. Can anyone give me a heads up on this appointment? I was shaking and near tears when I got off the phone from scheduling. I received my paperwork in the mail today for my appt and I don't know how to answer half of the questions because my husband's father was adopted, so we don't know ancestry for that side of the family. That being said, I am ok with adoption. Happy with adoption. I just want answers.View Thread
Thank you so much for my encouragement! I am both excited and fearful of my appt on 11/22. I trust her opinion and will be waiting to see what fertility clinic Dr Austin refers me to- given it is necessary. Yes, I am still I'm denial. Well, denial or optimistic, I suppose. Now hat I have shared with a couple of close friends and I have cried with them, I feel so much better. I feel I am finally getting out the emotions I have kept for the past 17 months. Girls need to cry, right? Again, I can't thank you enough for your response- it reminds me I am not alone!!View Thread
