Can't Seem To Get The Motivation To Try Anymore

Postby 35HopingForAtLeast3 » Thu Nov 10, 2011 8:21 pm

Well I'm coming to the end of my period and I guess I should start to take my temps. But I seriously can't be bothered. I have no motivation to try anymore. I think I'm out of steam.

A bit of background... I'm 35, hubby is 34 we got pregnant about 2 1/2 years ago which ended in miscarriage at 7 weeks and 7 days. We've been mostly trying ever since.

I havent temped in quite a while. I figured whats the point, Im not ovulating. Maybe you just need a cycle of not temping. TTC is hard after trying for so long. Hopefully you wont be waiting too much longer.

I feel the same way. I just got AF after doing everything possible and I am crushed. I have been on this stupid fertility diet and I dont think I can deal with these restrictions anymore. I want to live my life again. I want cheese again and chocolate and desserts. I want to quit trying and find myself with a surprise bfp. I don't know how anyone does it.
Me (sharon): 37 the worst- high FSH
DH (marc): 39 lots of sperm but low volume

TTC #1 for 21 cycles
FSH 19.9, everything else fine
-doing acupuncture weekly since July 2011
-Taking powdered wheatgrass, 50mg B-6, a mega multi-vitamin and fish oil (along with some TCM herbs).
-Also cut back on caffeine, sugar, alcohol, and white flour. Pretty much my entire diet before I started this.

7/2011 Clomid and lots of bding- BFN
11/11/11 IUI with Clomid #1- BFN super sad.
11/29/11 IUI with Clomid #2- BFN not fair!
12/2011- natural cycle- BFN very frustrated and angry.

I hear you loud and clear. We've decided to take a break for a while and I feel really good about it. I didnt think I'd ever be able to stop but its like a big relief. Good luck.
