I know exactly how you are feeling. My dh and I have been ttc since Sept of last year. Like you, we have been married for a little over two years. When we started, we knew of several other couples who were ttc. All of them have since gotten pregnant and a few have had babies. We even found out about other couples getting pregnant who we didn't know were trying.

I don't begrudge anyone their joy, but I wish I was pregnant, too. Sad

I feel you! My 19 yo sil came to my dh to ask him to ask me (did you follow that?) for a pg test (she knows we're ttc, so I have some) I told her that I wouldn't give her one. (I knew it was to early anyway) But that I am taking her butt down to planned parenthood this weekend to get her on some birth control. Then, I proceeded to cry for the rest of the night. And honestly, that is pretty much all I have done for the last week or so. It's amazing what we will put ourselves through just to see those two stupid lines pop up in that insanely small time frame.

hey christy haven't seen you around in a while. hope everything is good with you.

yeah we really didn't think that it was going to take us this long. i mean i consider myself to be pretty healthy. i don't have any sort of medical history. but i guess this just happens sometimes. i only get really down when i see or hear of someone else that has gotten preg. it'll be about another week before we see if this month was a go or not.

good luck to you both. and i hope that it happens soon for us all.

I guess I have been relatively lucky in not having anyone that is really close to me get pregnant. Most of my friends aren't in real relationships, and the ones that are are not married and definitely not trying to get pregnant. We were the fist of all our friends to get married, so I think that has something to do with it. Our friends are already starting to tease us and say...."any day now...we want to see a baby" It doesn't really bother me yet, because I know they are jokeing and I can easily play it off as we are still "having fun and partying" even though we are not. It's easy for them to believe.

I understand what your saying. I have been trying since Nov 06 and about a month ago someone I work with told me that her daughter was prego. She said she just got off birth control and after one af she was prego. I don't understand how it is so easy for some people and so hard for others.

Im 26 and been ttc since feb 07, with no luck. I have a hypothyroid which is under control and my doctor said to stop stressing so much, relax.3 couples we know have gotten preggo and 2 were on birthcontrol and weren't really ready. Which made me upset because she was like I guess we will be old and boring now, I was so mad. I just relized that I'll need to relax, take care of myself (vitamins, eat right and get good sleep), and not let others bother me. Its real hard when you see them getting bigger and you have nothing. Confused

I would recommend getting a full GYN work up including thyroid function testing because its one of the number one reasons for infertililty

Just out of curiosity, what kind of doctor can do a full thyroid work up? I have no clue when it comes to doctors. I always have to ask my mom what kind of doctor I need to be going to.

To get a full thyroid test you can ask your OBGYN, family doctor, and a doctor that specializes in thyroid problems is an endocrinologist (that is who you should see i you are dignosed with a hypo or hyperthyroid)
