Hello, everyone. My name is Tyese and my husband and I have been trying to conceive now for 8 months. I will admit, I had no idea that we would still be trying 8 months later to conceive our baby. I think so many women and couples talk about how easy it is/was for them to get pregnant, that no one really talks about the difficulties in TTC. I went to see my OB/GYN 3 months ago to make sure everything was ok, and that there was nothing wrong that I should be aware of. Everything came back normal and that I am healthy and should have no problems TTC.
I am 35 and my DH is 33. It is very difficult to watch so many women I know announcing their pregnancies and I am still trying. The questions that people often ask are very hurtful, and make me question is there something wrong that I am not aware of. I am healthy, and so is my husband. We have using the BBT charting for the past 2 months, and this will be our third month using it. Our OB/GYN will review it after this month to see if he sees anything out of the normal. We are also using the the Clear Blue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test for the second time this month.
I will be honest, I do not understand the BBT charting at all. I have read articles, but I am still clueless. We did notice using the Clear Blue Ovulation Test, that I ovulated a few days earlier than the app that we have been using on my phone to track my menstrual cycle. I am currenty on Day 4 of my menstrual cycle, so we are about to start our Clear Blue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test July 15. I would appreciate all the prayers we can get that this month will be successful.
I have to say I have an awesome husband who has been right by my side, drying tears, and holding my hand through it all. I do believe God knows the desires of our hearts, and will bless us with a beautful gift. The human part of me struggles, because our gift seems so far away. Any advice and support is appreciated. Thank you so much for reading!

I am right there with you!

I am 30 and my DH is 34, and we have been trying for over a year now and nothing. Started rounds of Femara in June and nothing yet either. Haven't even gotten a positive OPK yet. Definitely tears, frustration, heartbreak, and lots of baby envy. Trying to stay positive.

Have you looked into stress levels at all? I read somewhere that if you are chronically stressed it can reduce your pregnancy success rate by 30%. I'm going to take this part head on because I have PCOS and also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder as well. I have a doctors appt in two weeks and an hoping that maybe we start talking about Clomid or Metforim, and maybe it'll be better.

Sending positive thoughts your way.
