I hope you all donít mind me joining this board, but hereís my story:

My DH and I have a wonderful 14yo son together and in 2009 we started thinking our family was incomplete and talked about having another child. So I stopped Depo (after being on it for 11 years!) and we decided to NTNP for awhile. Due to our jobs we both travel, so even after a few years I wasnít surprised we didnít have a BFP, but the beginning of 2011 the desire to have a child increased for the both of us so we decided to actively TTC..using OPKs and BBT, we made changes in our jobs to travel less and to ensure weíd be together during the ďrightĒ times and when we werenít preggo the beginning of 2012 we decided to seek medical help.

We meant with our RE in Feb 2012, where we discussed IUI and had to wait for AF to do some blood work and have an HSG completed before we moved on to IUI. Well, AF was late and I decided to test and we were shocked to see a BFP! We were super excited but unfortunately, I m/c in April. We are waiting a cycle then TTC again.

After 2 years of NTNP and a year of actively TTC, Iím not sure how long it will be before I see one again.

Lately, Iíve been hanging out in the TCAL board and the ladies on there are greatand very supportive. I really enjoy the board, but I also like to jump around on multiple boards. Iíve been lurking on the TTC board and(venting coming) PLEASE, PLEASE donít get me wrong I love seeing all the BFPs and am so happy for these ladies, but it makes me want to scream ďwhatís wrong with meĒ when I see so many women get their BFPs first cycle or two. And irks just a little when someone complaints that they arenít preggo and itís been one cycleÖ.or when itís posted ďfinally a BFPĒ and itís the second cycle.

Sorry, for the venting but needed to get that off my chest and didnít quite know where to vent at and thought this board was probably the most appropriate. Hope you lades donít mind me joining, I promise I donít vent often and I truly am happy for each and every BFP!

Welcome!! I totally understand what you're saying about the ttc board - I have felt that way on other boards myself!

I'm Lisa and my DH have a 4 year old and we've been ttc now for almost 3 years with "unexplained infertility". We've had two losses during that time.

I hear you! People around me breathe and get pregnant. I'm Victoria, and I've been trying for 3 years. Have been through hell.

IT's tough going through this, but know you're not alone.

Hey Ladies...
My name is Anna...and in a few days I will be TTC for one year!
Every month I would hope...pray...believe that I would be pregnant...and yet...AF would come...and I would be heart broken!
Dr said we should give it one more month after the last pack of clomid...and come in for a visit...I never in my wildest dreams thought I would not be able to get pregnant...NEVER. My DH and I are two healthy individuals...we dont smoke, we dont drink...we are very active...hiking, cycling...swimming!
I dont really know how to handle the "big question" anymore..."when are you starting a family...you are a natural with children..." AND EVERYBODY I know is just falling pregnant...without even trying...please tell me how that works???
