AFM: I'm about to go crazy waiting on the 12th of march to get here!! I know i have to wait 2 more weeks...and it's KILLING ME!!!! I also realized that my $200 esc. has ran out and i have to come up with like 10 visits worth of back co-payments. I'm really freaking out...but so far they have only billed me for one of them!!! Which is a good thing!!! I hope you ladies have a great weekend!!!!

Hi everyone, saw a couple people mention support groups IRL. Resolve holds lots of support groups in many different areas. I wanted to join several times except I work a 12 hr rotating schedule and I can't commit to like every Saturday or every night at 7pm during the week. I don't get home from work till 8pm at time. Check out their website though. Just keep in mind many of the woman you will look for support to may get pregnant which can make life even harder. Good luck to everyone.Here's their website.

Thanks Brandy.

MomtoAlexis~No support groups in Maine or New Hampshire. Because apparently we don't have infertility here too?

Whoa - awesome! I think I saw something about this posted here awhile back, but I wasn't interested at the time or wasn't dealing with infertility yet. Thanks! I see they have a seminar on donor conception on March 20th, so I might hit that up!

We don't really have any here, either. Well, there are groups listed, but they are all WAY too far away for me to even consider going.

Could anyone tell me what they think is up with my chart? It looks really strange. I've never had it jump up like that in the middle of my LP. I am still surprised that FF did not move my O date after the jump. More than anything, I think that I am hoping for someone to convinve me that it's not triphasic. I hate convincing myself I'm preggers just to be disappointed again.

oof, it's hard to say, and I wish I could give you a clear answer because agonizing over your chart is so hard (that's why I gave up charting). I think FF hasn't moved your O date because it's looking at hte EWCM. Have you had any since then? It's possible you O'd later, but I'm not sure. Anybody else have better insight than I do?

Have you ever read a post from a woman complaining that she's been trying for 4 months (or 5 months, whatever) and she's so frustrated, blah, blah, blah...and you just want to SCREAM--TRY BEING UNFERTILE???!!!!

When the doctor said he was going to label the visit for infertility, my first thought was okay, it's official. My second thought was, how much are we going to pay to have a baby? But I love my husband. I'd rather have no kids with him and be happy with our furbabies then have a "perfect" 2 child household w/ any other man.

Sorry, I just had to vent for a minute.......

I poked my head in over at the regular TTC threads a few days ago, and ran right back here. There are some IUI people hanging out over there, but I can't really deal with it - too many people getting obsessive about 2 months of trying and no results. Also, I really feel like I'm on a different planet from people who get to have sex to have a baby.

I know exactly how you feel. I go to school with a girl who was asking me about different herbs and stuff she could take to help get pregnant, since she knew I'd been going through infertility. I asked her how long she'd been trying and she said four months. FOUR months and you're freaking out and wanting to take a bunch of herbs and stuff to try to get pregnant? GAH. To make matters worse, I got a text from her tonight that she's pregnant. Five months of trying. I'm thrilled for her and I'm so glad that she didn't have to go through all this that I'm going through, but it's still tough.

The average person TTC just has no clue what it's like to be infertile. To try for years and not get pregnant. To take pills with horrible side effects, repeatedly jab needles into your stomach, TTC with a freaking medical procedure rather than a loving pleasurable act, cry as you hear of yet another person conceiving after two months or - worse yet - surprise pregnancies. Regardless of how happy you are for that person, it's still heartbreaking that other people have it so easy.

I couldn't agree more ladies!!!! I know i'm young and people think that just because i'm only 26 I shouldn't worry about the fact that i'm not pregnant yet. But my DD is 6, and I got pregnant with her 7 years ago. I only took b/c for like a year after she was born and me and her dad decided to stop and just see where things went. So that was what 5 years ago...and still nothing. It sucks that it took 5 years for my OB to finally refer me to a RE...and finally be diagnosed with PCOS!!!! It kills me when my friends (including my sister in law who's my age and has 3 kids) say "oh it will happen, just relax..." well if the just relax methods helped then I think i would of already been pregnant. It's just really frustrating that women who have only been trying for a few months start complaining when there are women like us who have been trying for several years and still have no luck.


Ok...sorry..ranting...slowing down.....breathing normally now....alright...now that i've said that lol....i'm about to start the March thread if there's anything that needs to be changed just let me know

I haven't been posting, but I've been hear. Last week was rough for me. I'm back.

First off, yes it bothers me very much when people who have been ttc for 3 or 4 months complain. They really have no idea what the wait could be like. They don't know the emotional pain that a couple goes through on a monthly basis trying to get something that is suppose to happen naturally. I try to put their struggle in perspective but I'm bitter. And yes, I get really angry about woman who have large amounts of children and can't/won't take care of them. I don't understand fate.

lesliesara63- Welcome!

Ladylaura- I hope your IUI worked last week. I also have issues going to some of the other forums. We don't really speak the same language.

Brandy- I know how you feel about the finances of everything. I think what makes it the hardest is that I am paying for a child. I have no child, but I am still paying this bill. If I bought a car and gave the dealership money but left the lot without the car I would be mad.

grapesbunch- Sorry, I don't have any info for you. I don't bother charting. My RE tells me the next step and I do it.

MrsD08- yes, it bothers me as well...see the above rant

AFM- I tested neg last week. But more than that it's the lost of hope. We have always had hope in the past but for some reason last week it went away. It's one thing to try this stuff over and over with the understanding that something will work. But one you get to the point where you feel like nothing will work, it becomes a bit overwhelming. And I get really mad.

Weekend Wrap up
Name: Courtney
Age: 29

CD: 28

Plan for this Cycle: Tested neg, given up hope for this cycle, doing bloodwork @ RE today to confirm and then start all over again when AF comes
