So far this is my fifth cycle of ttc...I'm 25(will be 26 on the 29th) and BF is 24. I'm praying this is our month. I woke up today really sad, crying for no reason, well mainly because I no af will be here next wk. I'm in my tww but so afraid to get my hopes up to be let down. Every symptom I have thts weird that could be pregnancy related I make an excuse for and try to face the fact the its a big chance af will show up. The best birthday gift the lord could give me is a :bfp: but if not I'll keep trying. At this moment just don't want to get my hopes up. But I'm keepin my fx!!!

Hi everyone, I am 28 and so is my husband. My dh and I have been ttc for 11 months now. We haven't used any bc for the last 2 years of marriage. I had an HSG last month and everything was normal. We went last week for my dh's sperm analysis and his numbers were a little low in count and motility. My doctor wasn't very helpful after getting his results, she directed us to a urologist but his numbers don't seem that low. Everyone around me is turning up pregnant and I am so sick of feeling jealous when I know I should be happy for them. My heart sinks every time I find out someone else I know is pregnant. I want to stay positive but I don't have anyone to talk to that is going through this, my only friend that was having trouble just found out that she is pregnant. Anyone advice/support is welcome.

DH and I were nt/np since 2001. In 2005 or 6 we started actively ttc on our own, nothing. Then in 2010, we asked for help only to find out that he's perfect and I have permanent BC because both tubes are blocked. Talk about being devastated, now we're currently beginning our 1st IVF cycle. Wish me luck ladies, as I do for every one of you! :hugs: :hi:

This is cycle 10 for me and my DH, FX this is our BFP cycle, before TTC we thought getting pregnant was quick and easy for most people and would be for us. I have had to try hard to learn patience and to appreciate the perspective this process has given me.

AmyLynn, whats happening now with the low sperm count? Have they put your dh on anything to improve his count? MY bf the same, he just thinks that having surgery to remove a cyst and varicocele is the answer, I'd rather they just put him on clomiphene to improve the sperm. HE sees his urologist on 21ST Jan about going under the knife. X
