Hello goobermom and onthelanai - this may be a great support forum for us women who have been TTC for soooo long as it's hard to go through alone - ((hugs)) to you both as well.

Are you TTC this month? What part of your cycle are you at?
onthelanai - how long did it take you to conceive your 1st?

AGE of you and DH? - ME 28, DH 26
TTC Baby #? 1
TTC for __ Months? Months? Try years: 6+
Fertility Treatments? We did Clomid, IUI and now we have to start all over on our fertility work up, because we had been preventing for 3 years after our last miscarriage. My 2nd HSG is scheduled for Thursday, May 26 to see if my left tube is still open. After that, I don't know...
Location? Oklahoma City, OK

It's hard, but fortunately for all of you ladies, I'm always in the minority in statistics, so that means you are more likely to get your BFPs in the near future. Almost all of the women who were TTC and struggling with infertility when we were ttc before have had their miracles. The women who did not, chose not to continue ttc. I hope that gives you some added hope.

onthelanai,
I think I sent you a pm the other day about another post you made. I hope you got it, I know you were having a hard time that day. I was unable to post for about three days, and sent out a lot of pm's!

Ladies - isn't it SCARY and SAD how long it's taking some of us and the barriers we are facing? Look how many are in the 20's and early 30's... blows me away.

Luckily enough for me I'm not facing that many barriers - it's just unexplained infertility so I know I don't have it as bad as many women out there and I hope I'm not coming across as trying to be a "victim".

I see SO MANY women pass me by and get their BFPs and I'm happy for them but jealous/angry at the same time knowing I've been ttc for 2 years now. IE. 2 of my sisters got pregnant within 2 months of ttc and one got pregnancy as a "surprise"....

Add another name to the list... mine.

AGE of you and DH? - ME 29, DH 33
TTC Baby #? 1
TTC for __ Months? 21
Fertility Treatments? Clomid
Location? Ontario, Canada

Just started seeing an RE and am doing further testing to find out if their are other problems besides anovulation. So far he's found that I have 2 very small polyps and an anteverted (tilted) uterus. Apparently neither should affect a pregnancy.

AGE of you and DH? - ME 25, DH 29
TTC Baby #? 1
TTC for __ Months? Well we haven't used anything for BC in 17 months, but we didn't start actively trying until about 13 months ago
Fertility Treatments? nothing!
Location? New York

I have a very regular cycle, and no reason to believe either of us have fertility issues. I am scared to go to the doctor to find anything out, but I don't want to keep putting if off in case its something that could be easily fixed.

I also get frustrated with how easy some women get pregnant. I am happy for those who were trying for a child, but when I hear about women who got pregnant without even trying it makes me so angry/sad! Not at them, but at our situation! I know everyone says it will happen when its meant to, but why cant it happen for us now, when we both have good jobs, we're very happily married, and could provide for a child... but it happens for people who can't even take care of themselves!!!
