Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

We’ve been trying to get pregnant for months and we’re pretty frustrated. How can I keep a positive attitude?

Re: We’ve been trying to get pregnant for months and we’re pretty frustrated. How can I keep a positive attitude?

The Bump Expert It’s tough not to obsess, especially when Aunt Flo arrives month after month. First, realize that what you’re going through is normal. Yes, a widely cited stat says that it takes the average couple between four and six months to conceive, but that means it took many couples a lot longer. And while it may seem like “everyone” you know gets knocked up without a problem, there’s a good chance they struggled too. Second, seek out support. Talk to friends or family or try an online community (like the one right here). Sharing your frustration with women who know exactly what you’re going through can really help. Try not to make your mate a constant sounding board for your TTC anxiety -- it’ll only increase any he’s probably feeling himself. On especially bluesy days, tell yourself that you will have a baby one day. Really picture yourself holding your little sprout and imagine how good it will feel. It might not happen quite how you imagine... maybe not when, either... but keep believing that it will. And when it does, the stress you’re experiencing now will be way more than worth it.

We to are TTC and are having NO luck!! This will be our 3rd month and we have did everything from everyday to every other day..I track my ovulation and last month it said the 17th was my prime day but also highlighted was the 14th thru the 20th i do believe.. last month my period was on the 3rd then i had it again on the 30th..the 30th was the worst of my life so painful and tooooo much bleeding(usually mine our light and always regular) Its just sooo frustrating when we try over and over again and we dont get the BFP:( We already have one little angel hayden whom is going to be 3 and we got pregnant with her the 1st day my husband got out of A-school!!!

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My husband and I have been TTC since we got married in Feb. Five months of trying and still no luck. We've finally picked up some ovulation test kits and hoping that will help us get a better idea of the best time to concieve. Day 3 of our kit and still no signs of ovulation. But, I have a 35 day cycle so it's very frustrating that the average person waits 7 days less than I do to concieve and also find out if she is pregnant 7 days sooner than I would. I hate those extra 7 days each month. Which also decreases my chances of getting pregnant for the year...so not fair. I'm doing my best to stay relaxed and keep faith in the idea that it will happen when it's meant too, but it's hard with this huge waiting game. But, I will not give up the fight for this baby. This will be our first child and it just can't come soon enough. Can't wait to see a BFP.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

Meagan, I completely relate with you. My cycles are all over the place, ranging from 28 days to 42 days (typically around 35 is my average). I feel like my chances of conceiving are far less than everyone else and it is impossible to chart my ovulation when I'm so irregular! I end up taking 5 pregnancy tests every month (starting at 28 days) just to end up disappointed month after month. Yesterday, I noticed a blob of egg white CM when I wiped, so I am hoping that I ovulated and maybe this will be the lucky month for us! I did make a dr appointment for next month just in case to get checked out... Good luck everyone

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

I have been off BC fo over a year and a half, I have normal cycles of 28 to 30 days and I know for the most part that I am ovulating. We started TTC about 9 mos ago and nothing. I am wondering if it is that I am so stressed about so its not happening or what? I have tried some different methods of tracking ovulation, which say I am, but no luck. The just relax part is not as easy as you think sometimes, especially when everyone else around is getting pregnant without any issues or so it seems, but I try. It does help that others are having issues, though I do not wish this on anyone. My other issues is not having a doctor and finding one it is not so easy. It is so hard when you want it now (9mos ago) and it isn't happening. Good luck to all.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My husband and I have been TTC for a year now, with no luck so far. I had a hysterosalpingogram, and everything came back fine! We also had a semen analysis, which was very low the first time. We went to a fertility specialist who told us our only option was probably IVF...scary. He also tested my husband again, only to find out that his count is completely normal?! Yay!...but still no baby :( I just started reading "Making Babies" by Sami S. David and Jill Blakeway. I would recommend this book to anyone who is frustrated with TTC. It has helped ease my mind...and has some really good info! Lots of things that can affect fertility...and we had no clue! People also recommend reading "Taking Charge of Your Fertility"...but I think if you've been trying for over a year with no luck..."Making Babies" is the better choice. It helps you figure out what might be going wrong. I know it's frustrating...but hang in there :)

UHHHHH... I am sooo Frustrated... We have been ttc for 7 months now and it is soooo aggrivating when everybody... I mean everybody is pregnant around you and that is all you want. You tell your bestfrined you want to have a baby and a month later she is telling you that she is pregnant... uhh... i dunno what to do anymore... all i can do is wait and try not to stess about it but it is aggrivating when that is all you want and everybody else is getting it but you. it sucks to think well i have to wait another month over and over again...

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

Same here we have been ttc for about 4 months and nothing, but my sister in law, my 4 friends are pregnant, when i found out about my sister in law i was so mad cause i had been telling her that i had been ttc and she had told me she didnt want anymore kids right now and then she turns out pregnant, it sucks but i got over it and happy for all of them, i hope this months is my turn.

mendoza26 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

Same here...this was our 5th month ttc and AF arrived right on schedule this morning...i came back to bed and cried. Its so frustrating watching, seeing, and hearing about all of these people get pregnant seemingly without even trying. Some without means to even support a child, like my cousin who is now the mom to be of TWINS (& who just happened to run out of "plan b") REALLY!?!?!?! UGH. We haven't shared our ttc news with anyone because we don't want to share the disappointment month after month and live through the pain every time someone asks if were pregnant yet...its hard enough sharing it with each other. I have read a thousand times how "perfectly normal" it is to not conceive right away, but sometimes you can't help feeling like you're missing the boat. I do my best to stay positive and know that we WILL get pregnant eventually and pray that it will happen sooner rather than later.

i can relate to the emotions I am reading from the responses. i, myself is in a similar situation. i have a 4-yr old son and have been trying for 3 months, never used any birth control since my son was born, irregular cycles. i want to move on but i am having a challenging time. how can someone move on or stop trying too hard when the subconscious mind tells you something different? ='c

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My dh and i have been ttc for a year and one month.....frustration is not the word!! People all around me are getting pregnant and i can't help but just get mad. The stress is out of this world...its all i think about!! I dont know how to calm myself down sometimes...many moments of breakdowns and tears! We have both been tested and everything is "normal" but nothing!! How does everyone cope!?

CCdolly05 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

CC I feel your pain. My dh and I are in the same boat...so much so we are going for our next round of tests and are now faced with the decision to start fertility treatments or keep trying on our own. I can't take another person telling me it takes time. I cry every month when I get my period. We have finally said that this month will be different. We are taking a trip and trying to relax a little. A lot of our friends that had trouble ttc said it was the best thing they did. I feel bad b/c every month I break my dh’s heart when I get so broken up. But literally every one of our friends are having babies, most of them are on their second. I wish you like and know you are not alone.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My husband and I have been TTC for 7 months now.. Recently we found out ANOTHER acquaintence of ours is pregnant, theyhave been married less than a year.. my husband looked at me and I drank some alcohol so fast, as we had company , and as soon as they left, I burst into tears saying "it should have been us...why not us...".. he feels so bad, he doesnt' know what to do.. all his friends have kids, all got preggos in the first couple tries.. people say "just relax" and I want to slap them in the face.. it's everywhere I go.. every tv channel.. I've even avoided going to teh mall b/c in the summer it's only mommies/strollers.. I feel sad, alone and disappointed that my body can't do it's "womanly" thing and have a baby already.. I so badly wish for my parents, especially mydad who has cancer to be able to see/meet their first grandchild... Anyway, we just planned a trip for Trial #7 and I hope that helps me relax

I just took my third pregnancy test and this time I really felt it was the one i've been nauseated for weeks my favorite candle has now made me want to vomit and can't be lit in the house and m AF is late but sadly I got a BFN and I just found myself sitting on the toilet staring at it and I started balling I feel like getting pregnant is impossible or I'm being punished and to make things worse all my friends have now announced they are pregnant or just had a baby =(

coconutcutie14 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

I am right there with you. The pain of trying and failing has been overwhelming this past week. My husband and I have been trying for almost 6 months and every month is just another disappointing one. We thought we were pregnant this month since I was a week and a half late, but just a few days ago my monthly visitor came and shattered my dreams of becoming a mother. I have been beside myself and my husband, bless his heart is trying his hardest to console me but nothing he says or does is helping and I know he is just as upset and worried as I am. On top of all of this we both just found out that one of our friends is unexpectedly pregnant, with their 2nd child (the first one they decided not to keep). It sickens me to know that there are so many unplanned pregenancies and abortions that occur each day and for those people (that have abortions) to have a second chance at creating life when the first one didn't fit their schedule during that time is honestly a cruel joke. I am trying my hardest to keep myself together and to think of the positives in this situation, but it is hard. I know all of these emotions right now are stressing me out and everyone just keeps saying that "it will happen eventually and to just enjoy the process." I just keep reminding myself that the feelings that I am experiencing at the current moment are not helpful for having a baby.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

I have been the same way. My husband and I have been trying for about a year (or more) to no avail. I have some health issues but according to my doctors, I can still have children. I have a 10 year old son and 9 year old son from a previous relationship and they were easy. Now that I am married, I want one frommy husband and can't seem to get pregnant for anything. Why was something that was once so easy so hard now? I cry all the time and it cuts me so deeply that the one thing I am supposed to give so freely cannot be given and it seems that I can't do anything about it. My husband is trying to be there for me but he has no idea how to . There is really nothing anyone can say to make me feel better. I am so distraught that I am thinking of seeking psychiatric help. Is there anyone else that has felt this bad over this?

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My husband and i have been TTC for 3 years and nothing yet...The bad thing that gets me frustrated is to think that Im 31 years old now and my doctor told that after 35 is not a very good thing to have a baby anymore...I just keep thinking that I'll never have my own family and that really stresses me out...i try to have positive thinking but these 3 years have been the longest ever especially when your younger sisters already have they're baby girls.....Can someone please give a positive thought???

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My husband and I are in the same boat as all of you guys. We have been TTC for a little over a year and each month whan AF comes it is so devastating. I have been trying so hard to stay positive but yesterday I got the news that my best friend is expecting her second child. While I am so happy for her, I dont feel like I can be involved through this pregancy because Im not that strong. I just keep wondering when it will happen for me. Lets not give up ladies ands lets encourage each other through this very emotional journey!

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

It took 3 years to conceive Ronan. We tried and tried and we didn't want to go and do any fertility treatments or anything, wanted it natural or we'd adopt later. Anyways. It wasn't until I stopped thinking about it every day and just told him, it will happen when it happens. And literally sex was more enjoyable after that and 1 month later I found out Ronan was on his way.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My "make baby now" hormones kicked in about a year ago, but my husband was not ready. There was a lot of screaming and crying last year, but now he is fully on board about having a baby. It's like he did a 180 over night. I wish he had felt that way sooner! We started trying this cycle and not only did I get my period, but it came a few days early. I've got irregular periods and im pretty sure I didn't ovulate:(

lovesjamesa |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

I am struggling with staying positive too. I am 32 and will be 33 in November. We have been trying for about 5 months now and nothing so far. It seems as if everyone I know is pregnant or has a baby. Now, I have diagnosed with carpal tunnel and need surgery on both wrists. The doctor says we need to avoid getting pregnant during all the surgeries and recovery due to anesthesia and medication, but that means at least 4 months we will have to stop trying. I am so sad and frustrated. I was imagining myself pregnant and maybe even showing by Christmas. . .

love2travel79 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My DH and I have been trying also. I have been off the pill for over a year but have always been VERY irregular. Didn't start until I was 17 and it maybe came every 6 months until I went on the pill. My sisters and mom all have PCOS and had some difficulty getting pregnant for the first kid. I did two rounds of provera and had my cycle right after both of them but never had another between them. I go in for some blood work next week to check on things. I am just really hoping that I can get pregnant. My little sis is have a lot more problems getting pregnant with her second and it makes me really worried that I won't even be able to get pregnant once. This is so hard.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

We have been ttc for over 3 years now. I have done everything: prenatals, temp, ovulation test, laying on my back/stomach, having my hormone levels checked....Still nothing. =( I just asked my husband to go get his sperm checked....he just smiled and did not say anything...I am hoping that that means he is going. I feel for all of you that are having trouble ttc, not only have I not been able to get pregnant but I have had dreams twice that other women I know were pregnant and the came true. The other week I dreamt that it was me who was pregnant so maybe that is a good sign for us this month.....10 days till ovulation!!

Lala1353 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My husband and I have been TTC for two months now, and it already seems like we have been waiting forever. AF was almost two weeks late and then came around, which was incredibly disappointing. Like all of you, it seems like everyone around me is pregnant, including people completely unprepared (unmarried, boyfriend left them, live with parents, in college, no job) and it is driving me crazy! How can people who don't even want kids get pregnant so easily and people who want them struggle to get pregnant?! Best of luck to all of you!

syrup28 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My DH and I have been trying to conceive since we got married 6 months ago, and finally it all came to a head this past month because not only is people around us getting pregnant, one couple we know got pregnant, had a miscarriage, and is now pregnant again all within a three month period. I know when the couple told us they were able to get pregnant again after 1 month of trying, I came home from church and started bawling my eyes out and cried myself to sleep. I've had one miscarriage in the past, and ever since then have had irregular periods, like I have only had one period in the entire time my husband and I have been married, and to no avail. Negative tests every time. I just ask please, for those of you close to a faith, pray for me, I'm in full blown depression and despair over all of this.- Cynthia G.

And I'm glad we came to Dr Moko, Because he predictions put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done.

I am 31 and will be 32 in June. My fiance and I have ttc for 2 years now with not even a scare. I have tried ignoring the thought...and we have even tried "not trying" but with no luck. I don't really know how to deal with all of the emotions it brings with ttc for so long. I am so jealous of pregnant girls, I sometimes even hear the voice in my head screaming "I hate you so much because you can get pregnant and I cant!" I've stopped telling my fiance how upset it makes me that we haven't got pregnant because it just makes him angry. I'm basically at the end of my rope. Just wanted to vent so thank you.

DittyBop624 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

Hey everyone. I'm in the same boat as everyone else with TTC. Here is my story 8 years ago when I was 19 yrs old I had an abortion. I'm not proud of it but I was young and getting ready to move for college. At the time it seemed like the best option. Now I'm older and married. My husband and I have been together for 6 years. My husband has a five year old (almost 6) with another women. When I met my husband we were dating for a month when he told me that a one night stand (from before me) had called and said she was pregnant. My husband never had a paternity test done but his son looks identical to him. After my step-son came into our lives I realized how big of a mistake I made with the abortion. We decided we would wait until after our wedding to start trying for a child. So life got busy and we ended up waiting five years to tie the knot. We have been married since December and we started trying for a baby immediately. Five month's later were still not pregnant and now I'm worried that my abortion has made me infertile. I've never used birth control with my husband (even before we decided to concieve) so now I'm concerned why I never got pregnant before trying. Granted we did pull out everytime however It seems like after six years something would have happened at some point. Anyhow I mostly just needed to vent about my frustrations and fears. Good luck to you all.

MRSESKINS |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

We've been trying for 6 months now and like everyone else on this thread everyone around me seems to be getting pregnant with no problems except for me. Even my 16 yr. old cousin (HS Dropout) got his 16 yr old gf pregnant. What kills me is how easy it is for teenagers to get pregnant, I really wish I had all those hormones surging through me now... so much for being a responsible teenager back in the day. Hubby has a urology appt coming up in June so we will see if there is any issue with him, but for right now we are relying on my GYN who dismissed me bc we have only been trying for 6 months, and without tests said I was ovulating and okay after reviewing one triphasic chart... Grrrr.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

This is my first time posting on any sites like this, but I have been reading responses forever. I'm 24 my husband just turned 30, he has two kids from previous relationships. We have been married for a year and I am to the point of feeling desperate of wanting a baby, especially where he already has two. I have been trying for a year and nothing. I just went to my doctor and am awaiting blood work and another appointment. I know I m already diagnosed ocs, but know lots of people who have conceived despite ocs. It's dricving me crazy, 7 people at work are pregnant. I'm glad to know other people know wht I m going through and I hope to post my good news on here one day. But for now it's hard not to feel like there I something really wrong with me and it will never happen

Wantingbaby |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

I can relate, we have been trying for 3 months and each time Aunt Flo comes I get upset and sad. I have always felt like I would be the type who would never have a baby... and while we just started trying 3 months ago... I keep hearing that little voice in my head telling me that I was always right. I try not to stress my hubby out cause I know that he worries that I will become depressed if we don't have a little one. We just got married not even a year ago.. and people keep telling me "oh take your time, don't rush" thats easy for them to say when they don't feel the way I do. Its not easy, I see pregnant women everywhere (in my neighborhood) church, and even FB friends. I just can't see why its taking us this long.. am I rushing into this too much?

angellopez83 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

I am new to this board and i'm not totally familiar with the TTC terminology yet. But we have been trying for 6 months now and today, last day of the month, my dreaded period arrived. I thought this was definitely the month for us. I am so upset and so frustrated. I went to a bridal shower yesterday and two new moms were just talking about the incomparable joy babies bring. I want that. Like so many of you ladies, it's all i hear as I am 33 and everyone, family and friends, are announcing their pregnancies. I'm trying not to lose hope and keep my energy to keep trying. thankful for this board and that other women feel as I do. Lots of luck and blessings to you all.

Tailiz7 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

I'm starting to hate the TTC process every month I'm disappointed. I cry a little because I feel like less of a women because I'm young and can't even produce a baby with my husband. I'm so irregular sometimes I won't even get my period for 3 or 4 months at a time and doctors refuse to look into it and the nearest fertility doctor doesn't treat any couple under 28. So I have to be on BC just to get my period and have even the slightest chance of getting pregnant so I starting taking 2 pills every other day to kill the contraceptive part of it but still keep my hormones stable enough to ovulate. (A little trick I picked up in a nursing class I took when I was 16) It worked for my friend Abe and his wife (soo jealous) so I've religiously started taking my temperature at three points in the day morning midday and night and checking my CM every day for changes.

samikay33 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My husband and I have been married 10 months and wanted to start TTC from the very beginning. I was so worried after trying for 6 months and nothing that I made a dr appt. Went in and had a transvaginal ultrasound and they said that I they thought I may have PCOS and started me on metformin 500mg once daily. I took that for 1.5 and found out I was pregnant. We were beyond excited. I went in for my first OB appt and everything was fine couldnt hear the heart beat with the doppler but the dr said that was normal I was just to early. I had an US done at work just for fun (i work at a family dr office) and there wasnt a baby just a sac. I immediently took a preg test and it came back negative I called my dr and he had me come in for an exam and blood work. He called me that evening with the worse news ever, I had miscarried with a blighted ovum. I had forgot to mention I had also been spotting but I was told it was probably just implantation bleeding and nothing to worry about. It has almost been a month since I found out but I think its been over that, that I actually wasnt pregnant. TTC again and stressed because I want it so bad. The dr had said that if there was any good that came out of the whole situation it was that we know that I can get pregnant, so that did make me feel better.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

Keeping a positive attitude is really hard, especially as time goes on without success. My DH and I have been TTC for 3 years. Every month is a huge letdown, and it's so much worse when you think, "OMGosh. I think I might actually be pregnant!" I've found the best ways to cope are to not place blame (sometimes I have to stop myself accusing God of punishing me for something, even though I know that's not the case), and to seek out others who are in your position. It's so much better when you can talk to people who know what you're going through. I feel better reading a lot of your responses. That doesn't mean take joy in other people's suffering, but just knowing you're not alone is a great comfort.

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

We have been ttc for 2 years. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2011. I started seeing a RE. This is my fifth cycle with clomid and my second cycle of being given the hcg trigger shot. I am currently in the 2ww for this cycle. I am suppose to test Feb 14th. My last cycle with the hcg trigger and clomid was the most devastating disappointment when AF showed up. It has become increasingly difficult to stay positive and keep up face. It seems every one I know is pregnant or had a baby within the last 6 months. We had to SA my DH is fine. We currently have no children. Fingers crossed to a BFP Feb 14th.

shelbers1185 |

Q&A: Frustrated with trying to have a baby?

My husband and I have been TTC for about 7 months now and I used to have an irregular period, but after getting off birth control it regulated itself. I tracked my ovulation and did the BD every other day during that time. I'm starting to get frustrated. I used an ovulation kit about a month ago, and we did the BD when it said I was ovulating, and still nothing. I am almost 26 and I want 2 kids before 30. I am a bigger girl, and that's what's getting me down is that, that's whats stopping me, but I've been told by almost everyone I know that being bigger won't stop you from conceiving it just puts you at a higher risk for your pregnancy. Is that true? or not? I haven't gotten my period this month, it was supposed to be on the 31 of January, and I still haven't gotten a period, and I've take 3 tests, what could this be??!!??
