For me it was:
1. listening to relatives tell me to just "relax" and it will happen
2. watching friends and family get pregnant without trying
3. feeling like I was constantly being poked and prodded by my RE and myself between shots, ultrasounds, etc.

- The constant feeling of failure. After all the work I put in it through the month, only to get a BFN at the end, & it was all for NOTHING.

- Peoples dumb comments "Relax", "Let God handle it", "Your trying to hard"

-The side effects. haha

1. Constantly being surrounded by complaining pregnant people and their comments ("You don't want kids, right?")

2. Worry. Worry about it not working, worry about it working (2 m/cs in 6 months will do this to you....)

3. That dam ultrasound wand.

1. FAILURE

2. People constantly giving their advice, and the good ol' "Relax and it'll happen" bit...

3. The feeling of possibly never having my own child. Its taken me years to entertain that thought, but I feel like I finally need to start accepting that may be my fate.

1. Complete loss of control over my own life
2. Spending thousands of dollars on TTC instead of enjoying life, saving for retirement, etc.
3. Watching everyone around me take their kids/fertility for granted.


But that ultrasound wand was pretty terrible...thanks for making me chuckle, Kristen!

This is our first cycle of MA, and my husband thinks the ultrasound wand is getting more action from me than he is....

everything- the fact that leading up to MA was the loss of two perfectly healthy babies because MY body failed. Up to then I was just blindly believing it was some fluke of nature.

I guess for me the 3 worsts:
- feeling like a failure as a mom, wife, human being (yes it's a really ba week for me right now).
- havingALL the Ob staff and pharmacy staff know me by name.
- family. Friends. If I hear "oh but you are so young. You have plenty of time!" one more time I might really loss it! Yes I am 24 but it doesn't matter!!! I could be 40 and have the same problem. I've heard my daughter ask god for a baby brother for almost 2.5 years and it kills me inside when she says that god doesn't listen to her. Plus family says " if it's gods will it'll happen. Maybe god is trying to teach you something.". Yeah what is he teaching me? That it sucks all of it.

Rant over - I have been in tears or feeling like it all day and just a fowl mood overall.

Oh yes, my DH thought that, too. He once told me he was going to dress up as a doctor for Halloween because "you'll let anyone with a white coat have access." HA HA!

- The side effects of the clomid
- Having to go to the RE every other day for bloodwork/ultrasounds. I spent more time at the RE's office than at home
- Spending all of our money on it, being totally broke and still not having a baby. Feeling of failure and having to give up hope because you are out of money.

1) All those people who tell me to "just relax" and it will happen! And those who seem to question that anything could be wrong at all. For example, people ask me why the doctors think I am having trouble. I tell them that my FSH is slightly high so that means my egg quality might be diminished. They respond by saying something like - "That can't be true because you are young . I don't think that Drs. know what they're talking about." That's really not helpful to me!

2) The cost of treatments and the fact that most insurance plans don't cover any of it.

3) The fact that there seems to be a taboo about talking about fertility issues in public. I have no idea who around me has gone through something similar because so many people are reluctant to talk about it!

Thanks for starting this thread. It gave me a chance to vent
