Thank you both for the feedback and the support. I think this month we are going to try to be more laid back and (hopefully) not think about it too much. I had been trying to be more laid back in the last couple of months and my husband and I even had this discussion two weekends ago--that it will happen when it happens, etc, etc, etc... but...when I got my period last week I lost it and had a complete break down. But-- this month....going to make more of an effort to control my thoughts!
Thank you again for your support and understanding. This helps tremendously. However I am sorry that both of you (and everyone on this page) have been going through the same situation and feelings that I have---- this all down right sucks.
Anyway... good luck and keep me posted on the two of you as well!View Thread
I am new to this group and thought to share my frustrations (that's what this is here for, right!?). My husband and I started trying for a baby since June of this year with no luck. I am 27 and my husband is 28 and we thought we would have no issues with conceiving given our ages and generally healthy lifestyle. But, obviously, it has been an issue. We have tried pretty much every trick under the sun: a conception vacation, ovulation tests, different positions, laying different ways for 15 minutes after, etc, etc, etc. We are starting to get so frustrated. I cannot stop thinking about it and I feel so defeated. Trying for a baby was not supposed to be so difficult and draining. I sometimes can't help but cry. I have spent generally the last 10 years of my life trying not to get pregnant, and, here we are. It is just so frustrating. Even our sex life- which we thought would be booming with baby making- has become just a series of motions with just one goal in mind. My husband has been so supportive of the process and he generally feels bad about the situation we are in. We just don't know which way to turn to next. I did see my doctor a couple of months ago but he doesn't want to start me on any ovulation medications until January. My husband and I were thinking about trying acupuncture but it just seems so expensive. I do try to keep in mind that God has a plan for me and there is a reason why it hasn't happened yet, although I might not see it. I do believe God has a path for us and I need to trust in that. Anyway...I am glad to have found this group. Just a supportive outlet is helpful. All of my friends that have children either didn't have to try long before becoming pregnant or became pregnant by accident. ...Does anyone have any good pointers on baby making that I may not know yet?View Thread
