We're going on 6 months
Somehow I didn't think it would take this long.(not that 6months is really that long) But I didn't know ANYTHING about fertility before either. I guess I always thought it was simple as Have unprotected sex......get pregnant. Who knew it could be so stressful TTC!
But knowing what I know now, I wonder if I'll ever get pregnant.

We are on our 4th cycle.

I did not think it would take so long. Granted, 4 months is not all that long, but it feels like it. I still have it in my head that it will happen by 6 months, but i'm almost there, so i need to start getting a grip on reality!

This would technically be our 4th cycle ttc, but we got PG the first cycle we tried, and then I had a m/c, and then I had an anovulatory cycle after the m/c, so this is our 2nd cycle after m/c.

This is our 4th cycle officially trying. No I didn't think it would take this long - everyone always made it sound like it was so easy to get pregnant. Now I know better! LOL!

I tried the natural way in February and didn't have any luck. Then started IUIs in April and was able to conceive last cycle but suffered a very early miscarriage. So month-wise I have been trying for 7 months but this will be my 5th cycle trying (once AF shows).
