    Default Onto another month.

    17 months since beginning this process. Trying to stay upbeat here, but it is getting harder and harder.

    What on earth made me think I'd get lucky shortly after a miscarriage? It really got my hopes up. I think I am doubly upset when each month fails since then. I've had 3 tries since then and nothing. I'm doing acupuncture, taking progesterone in luteal phase, temping, OPK's, had a laparoscopy already, special diet, supplements/vitamins, everything short of fertility drugs.

    I really thought we'd manage this naturally, but I'm feeling a bit hopeless right now.

    I remember those days all too well. 3 years with DS. We ended up taking a break from TTC for awhile during that time (but still wasn't using BC b/c what was the point?!). Every time I saw a baby or pregnant woman I wanted to burst into tears. ((hugs))

    I know the feeling all too well. The first time around, it took us 6 months to get pg the first time. Then I miscarried. Three months later I was pregnant again - another m/c. Then I went another 12 months without anything... until finally I was pg with DD. All in all, we spent 22 months TTC.

    Now, 26 months after DD, having never used any BC, nothing again. I don't know why TTC is so hard for some couples, but it is. And it's hard, and heart-breaking. I avoided baby showers, I resented my sister for getting pregnant while on BC, and I cried more than I care to remember. It's definitely easier this time around, but it's still not "easy".

    Just remember, we're here for you. Vent all you want.

    Thanks all. As usual, I feel much better knowing I am not the only one upset and frustrated. I don't like how much of a trigger it is for me to break down when others announce their pregnancies, or when the pregnant ones can find nothing else to talk about. Even the ones who have gone through this seem to forget how much this hurts! Generally, I am a happy, positive person and this is bringing me down like nothing ever has, but I don't want to rain on everyone else's parade, so I usually bottle it up.

    This is one of my only outlets, so thank you all so much.

    I think I am going to seek a second opinion RE. I think part of my hopelessness comes from the hopelessness that was conveyed by my RE last visit.

    I am sorry for everyone else who is having difficulties as well. Hoping for better luck for all of us soon. I am going to keep up on this board a little better, so I'll keep an eye out!
