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.
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!
Married to Tim for 5 years (together for 11!)
Mommy to Hailey Noelle - 2 years old
Jenna Marie scheduled to come March 25th via c-section!
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 second cycle tring. I know I never would have thought it would have been hard. You always hear about people getting prego on bc, so off should be a piece of cake!
And of course.. its not.
We'll see what happens this month.
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).
