TTC #3 for 6+mo

Postby xoMusicMommyxo » Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:35 am

Hi everyone, dh and I are on our 6th month TTC #3. I am just looking to meet others who are in the same situation. It seems with our 2 kids it happened right away and we weren't even really trying! Now after just about 6 months, I am feeling really run down by the whole TTC process, and I've read how others have been trying longer. I don't know how to get through such an emotional roller coaster. I've tried charting (Cm, BBT, etc). and just keep getting bfn's month after month. We even bd at the right time too, as I go by cm, and OPKs as well.

I am starting to think we have a problem. When I went for my postpartum check up after my son, my doctor speculated I may have endometriosis around my cervix but he wasn't sure obviously without investigating it further. At the time I let it go because I saw another doctor who never even mentioned speculating I had it. I also was not worried about having any other kids then either. But now I am thinking back and wondering if I do have this condition and if anyone who has it still managed to conceive?

I don't think ovulation problems are to blame, because I have been getting a BBT rise every month. If it isnt with me maybe dh has a low sperm count all of a sudden?

I am 26 and he is 29. At what point do you think we should get checked out? I didn't know how stressful TTC could really be until now. Thanks for reading and God Bless all of you on your TTC journeys!
