Since Ive been here. Still not pregnant. But everyone else I know is it seems. In the past 2 weeks...3 friends, a cousin, wives of my husbands friends and SIX people I went to hs with are pregnant. I went through most of this week feeling like Id been punched in the gut.

I am trying to find ways to cope. I started looking at adoption options....told dh if we don't have a pregnancy by early next yearI want to do some serious traveling then start adoption proceedings. I don't think I could take dealing with fertility treatments

I don't know if this is drastic...its been 6 months though. I chart...I take my vitamins and eat well. I dunno ladies. I Ak done charting after this cycle.

I hope all of you have gotten pregnant and are doing well!!

I am sorry that it seems like everyone you know has gotten pregnant and you are still waiting to get pregnant. It totally stinks and I understand. Remind me again how old are you?? Are you under 30 or over 30?? I am asking because I can't honestly remember. Even with charting, eating healthy, and taking your vitamins it can still take up to a year for young healthy couples to get pregnant. Have you thought about maybe foster care?? Like foster to adopt?? I know some couples in my Sunday School class that are doing that. I know that is something we want to look into after we go through medical assistance. DH isn't sold on that idea yet but I am hoping over time he will give it more serious thought. Because my arms and heart feel like they are breaking by not having a more kids to share me love with.

DH always said we would adopt and not do medical assistance. It's just not for us, and there are plenty of children out in the world waiting to be loved. We'd likely adopt from the USA though. Don't feel so bad, I'm almost 23 and we've been trying for close to a year. I've started not worrying about it, focusing on school and eating right, exercising more, and when it happens it will happen, but I do still come on here, because I like it here lol.
Expecting our Rainbow baby October 23rd, 2014!

I agree with Sarah-Jane. It can take up to a year and stressing about it won't help with TTC! Easier said than done tho, I know! Just don't rule yourself out!
Does it seem like you are Oing each month? Does DH take care of himself and avoid heat from baths, saunas, laptops?

Good to hear from you! I'm sorry you are not having much luck... I'm not either! My body just refuses to adapt to being off BCP. I also know many people who have come up pregnant and I'm like seriously!? I'm just hoping the closer I get to a year I'll start straightening out. Keep in touch! We've missed you!
Stopped BCP & began TTC in January 2013- no ovulation, no cycles for 3 months
May-July 2013- provera cycles with no ovulation
August/September 2013-50 mg clomid cycles with no ovulation
October 2013- SA revealed low motility--referred to RE
January 2014- DHs repeat SA came back "normal"! I was diagnosed with PCOS
February 2014- IUI #1 on Valentine's Day with 2 mature follicles- BFN
March 2014- BCP to clear up cysts
April 2014- IUI #2 on 4/9/14 with 3 mature follicles and 3 catching up! BFP at 10dpiui!!!!!! So thankful!!! Beta #1 @ 13 DPO- 167; Beta #2 @ 15 DPO- 384!
