I am an old timer here, time doesn't permit me to come on as much as I'd like but here goes;

I'm currently TTC baby #8 and due to a couple factors, it's not an easy task.

#1. DH has male factor fertility issues and we use a known donor who has now moved 10 hours away

#2. DS 21 months is still going strong breast feeding which sometimes makes my cycles a tad irregular.

We made a trip to where out donor is two weeks ago, did our insemination and AF started Tuesday. I am devastated but don't feel like there's too many sympathetic ears given I already have seven.

I am just hear to vent a little.... Thanks ladies.

I'm sorry. I do understand that other people don't understand wanting another baby. I hope you can get a bfp soon and be here complaining that no one cares that you are sick because you should have known better.

I think sometimes people fail to realize that a mommy's desire to have a baby doesn't always go away just because she has a couple(or many) kids...
It has to be a struggle with a family with 7 children, the youngest still nursing, and wanting another baby but having fertility problems on top of it all has got to be difficult!
I'm so sorry for what you are struggling with and agree with farmers wife, I hope u get your bfp soon!!!
good luck!

I am sorry that AF came. Many people just don't understand the idea of having a large family and why we want it or do it. Don't let it discourage you. It will happen when it is suppose to. I know that is easier to say than actually going through but enjoy your little one, take joy that the little one is still breastfeeding and when you get that BFP you'll be elated. Keep your chin up!!

Your family looks cozy in your siggy! I hope things work out the way you want and need them to. Just ignore the people that don't understand. They have no say. Don't let them have what's not theirs.

I don't get on here that often but stopped in today.

Still no bfp, only tried with shipped sperm but ovulated 4 days late.....

Thanks for the support ladies. Nice to see others who can understand.
