    Default New-ish and frustrated

    Hi ladies! I have not been on this site since I had my DS back in 2009. For 3 years my husband and I have been on and off with TTC. My periods have always been crazy irregular, but recently they started to come in a timely manner with a 28 day cycle. I am now 13 days past my period and I took a pregnancy test (against my better judgement) and it had the two lines but only for a minute and it was very faint. I am trying to keep the mind set that it is just my irregularity starting up again, but my heart will not drop the fact that we so badly want a baby. Any suggestions? Should I call my doctor or not? I cannot really talk to anyone other than my husband about this and I feel like I am going mental.

    I would try to get in and get a blood test done. Good luck.

    There is at this point very valid reasons to call in your Dr. One you feel you are "late" by your recent cycle standards (and not just by a day or two either), and Two you have been TTC for quiet some time.
    Fingers crossed you get the answer sooner rather than later.

    Well, my flow started yesterday =( I am feeling very frustrated right now. My ob is out until November 5th so I might just try to see my primary doctor and see what he says. My husband is convinced that nothing is wrong, but I don't think it should be this hard for so long. I mean we got pregnant with my son within a year of 'not preventing'. I did not track or anything.

    So sorry Erin. If you will be going for any testing they will want to see charts so if you are not already charting then I would start that.

    Thanks! I have been emailing with my OB and she cannot understand why it is taking so long for us to conceive. She has given me the information for the Fertility department and wants me to call them and schedule a consultation. I am nervous.

    Don't be nervous with talking to the fertility people. Most of the time they are very loving and compassionate people. Good luck.

    Seeing a specialist is probably the best option for you right now. OBs can only do so much unfortunately!

    Keep us posted on how the referral goes.

    My husband and I decided to wait until January to talk to a specialist. We will give it two more months of trying. I am tracking my temps and using ovulation test. Giving it everything I have these two months. We have to pay 50% to see a specialist and we would like to try to not have to spend all that money and then have a baby . I am going to just keep positive thoughts.

    This week has been off to a rough start. My best friend just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and I am so excited, but it is so very hard to be there because it reminds me so much of the pain I feel, but now it is amplified. I feel like I am being selfish, but I cannot be there for more than 30 minutes before I feel like I am gonna break down.
