I have never posted on a board like this but I feel like I have no real outlet for how I have been feeling. My husband and I have been ttc for, officially, six month's. We took two month's off after we had tried for six in a row. This is the first month back and I had hoped, with all my hope, that the removal of that stress for two month's would magically make us able to have a baby.
Today, about a week before I was supposed to get my period, it came. I came so close to crying at work. I can't focus, I can't think, I feel just so overwhelmed and disappointed in myself.
I have five, very close girlfriends and three out of the five all had accidental pregnancies. It literally makes my heart break when I think about how things are just never, ever simple for me.
I am pretty certain that there is something off with me. Every time I take an ovulation test, it never says I am ovulating even though I have all the symptoms of a cycle. My doctors run tests, never tell me what they are for, and then tell me I am fine. My cycle can run anywhere between 27 and 35 days and my periods last anywhere between 4-7 days. I am just so hopeless and I am thinking that sharing my story may comfort me.
