I just joined JM, because I need to vent and need some support. We are on month 5 of ttc baby #2. I know that 5 months of trying isn't all that long, but we got pregnant with dd with one attempt the first month of trying. I didn't necessarily think it would be that easy for round 2, but of course I was hoping it would be. I am just feeling so defeated and depressed. One of my sister in laws had a baby today and the other one announced she is pregnant with #2 the same day I got a BFN. And of course, all of my friends seem to be announcing they are pregnant on a weekly basis. It's just so hard to stay positive. It's also not helping that dd who has been an angel so far in life, just got the memo that she's 2 and is having massive tantrums on a daily basis. I just feel like I'm pms-ing all the time now with these ups and downs. I feel like I'm on the verge of tears so frequently b/c I'm just so frustrated. You just always have these visions of how life is "supposed" to be and when it doesn't happen that way it really stinks. I'm taking Fertile Aid, peeing on opk sticks every month and timing things perfectly, so why isn't it working and where is my patience....UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
I can understand where the frustration is going. DD was 2 years in the making with PCOS and DS was a one hit wonder. This time around I am obviously using alternative methods as I am now married to a woman but the concept is the same.
Big hugs to you. I know how frustrating it is when everyone around you is having babies and you're not
I am only just beginning my journey, two cycles in actually, but it feels like an eternity. Dreading the possible arrival of AF this month. I just keep telling myself there will always be next month. I know exactly what you mean when you say it is hard to stay positive, every BFN makes me feel like something is wrong with me, like i am failing. I swear every single one of my friends is either due this month or just now getting pregnant. I never got the chance to try naturally. My DH has fertility issues of his own, I just never thought it would be this hard on me emotionally. I hope you find your BFP soon.
