I am not pregnant this cycle because I am "Infertile".
AF is due in a few days, and I keep saying over and over again in my head that I can't get pregnant because I am infertile.
Makes me sad. We have been trying since 2010. I know not near as long as some, and I have one child that I am super blessed with. But it still hurts. Just had to type it..

I know what you mean..the first year TTC it was such a let down, I only ovulate 5-6 times a year so every time it didn't happen it hurt so bad to have to wait 2 months to try again. The years before we started trying we never used protection and never tried to prevent it..we knew there would be an issue when we decided to start trying. My husband left on deployment, and he will be getting back at the end of September..I needed this break from TTC..just thinking about starting again makes me happy, but I remember the feeling of spotting and having aunt flow show her face and the sadness I felt of not being pregnant :/
I know we all have different situations here..and thinking back to when I complained about us trying for one year just makes me shake my head..I know it will happen at the right time, and even if we don't get pregnant for another year, i'm not going to worry about it anymore..there are just things that are out of our control..and I just have to start changing the way I think about it because it's a waste of energy to be mad and sad when we cannot change it at all...and like you said, there are many other women who have been trying even longer than us..I can't complain about my current situation when I think about them..we could always have it worst, try not to be so hard on yourself..medically we are "infertile" but you can't keep thinking that way..someday when you least expect it, that's exactly when it will happen.
