I feel ya hunnie! Members of my first DDC (Jan. 08) have already had their second babies, and here I am with three babies in the ground and a total of 4 angels of Heaven

I wish I had some words of encouragment, but all I can say is that YOU ARE NOT ALONE and God has a wonderful plan in store for you....just don't lose sight of your dreams, and definitely always hold tightly to your faith

You aren't alone. One of the "newbies" that I remember welcoming to the TTC board once upon a time has since had 2 babies and is ttc her THIRD! In the mean time, I am still sitting here waiting on my first one with DH. It sucks.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

Ugh. I haven't been on here long enough really to have seen it, but in real life a number of people I know who weren't even considering having a baby when I began TTC have now had theirs.
Me - 37 and DH - 35
After 2 years of infertility, IUI #3 with Clomid 75mg brought us twins.
E and N, born 6 weeks early but healthy, 1/11.
5/14 to 5/15 - TTC #3 for 1 year, then started Synthroid.
5/13/15 - Natural BFP. Chemical Pregnancy.
6/10/15 - A second natural BFP. Due Feb. 21st, 2016.

No words of wisdom...just wanted to let you know that I've been there too. Not so much on here because I joined this forum after ttc for about a year...but in real life I felt like I was ttc while friends were just getting married-and they ended up having 1-2 kids by the time I became pg with Alex. It's a tough place to be
Alexandra Eva is here! Born 1/17/10 at 5:55pm. Weighing in at 6lbs, 8oz and 20 Inches Long!

I know what you mean! I have been a member of JM since 2006 and have seen TONS of people get pregnant and move on. I of course started at the TTC board and before I knew it, I was to 1 Year +. It totally stinks sometimes but we're all here for ya!

Lynda, just wanted to pop in and say I so know how that feels. When I joined my first DDC years ago, I became friends with a lady in there and I ended up miscarrying and she went on to have her little baby. She ended up having another and then was pregnant with her 3rd before I got pregnant. It is a tough spot to be in and it seems like everyone passes you by, I know how that feels. Hope your day gets better.

Thank you to *Kiliki* for creating the perfect siggy!

"Victory is sweetest when you have known defeat" ~Malcolm Forbes

IUI #1 - Nov 07 = BFN, IUI #2 - Dec 07 = BFN
IVF #1 - Apr 08 = BFN
IVF #2 - Nov 18
Dec 2 - Beta 1: 198!! Dec 4 - Beta 2: 660!!
Dec 15 - 1st U/S - We're having twins!!!
