Hitting the 1 Year TTC Mark

Postby Emerald05 » Sat May 26, 2012 12:58 pm

AF just came, which means in a few weeks DH & I will have been ttc for 12 months without getting pregnant. I'm sure that when I started I didn't expect to be getting ready to go to my first RE appointment 12 months later.

Life is just so different from where I expected to be right now, and I've missed out on things that I now wish I wouldn't have (mostly my morning coffee!).

But I'm optimistic. There are hundreds of roads before us at this point. And we're getting ready to walk down another one. :)

Just keep up that positive attitude as much as you possibly can! It's one of the hardest things I've ever had to deal with both physically and emotionally so u need to keep positive and keep trying! I'm sure it will happen for us both one day :) and good luck with the specialist as at least it means you're moving forward!!!

Thanks for the reply Connie!

It will definitely happen to us both, hopefully someday soon!

I just wanted to pop in and say good luck and stay positive. I remember how sad it was hitting the one year mark, but it also brought new excitement to go see a specialist. I hit two more year marks after that with no baby. I also can look back now and realize how much life I missed out on just TTC. This road is one of the most painful ones to have to go down. Hang in there. Miracles do happen even if it is with the help of doctors. My boys are proof and now after it's all said and done I would go through infertility a million times over if it meant having my boys. You will hold your baby someday. Hang in there and keep strong.
