My husband and I have been trying ttc for 1 year now. I didn't know this would be so frustrating. We want so bad to have a baby. There are a few things that did worry me but now have been taken care of. He no longer smokes and I am loosing some weight. I've been told that weight was a factor. If there is anyone else out there frustrated like me, let me know.

Me Too
Me and my boyfriend have been trying to have a baby now for about 6 months and I am very frustrated and so is he. I did get pregnant about a year ago but had a miscarage at 2 1/2 months and that scared me so bad that I didnt want to try for a baby for a long time. But now I cant even get pregnant. What I found out is that using home ovluation tests is the best way to go. It will tell you when you are ovulating. I was also told it can take up to a year to get pregnant and after that if you are still not pregnant then you need to go and seek help from a doctor. Make sure that you dont have any stds or any kind of a bacterial infection. These will cause infertility. Has he been tested to see if he is fertile? Hope I could help.

My husband an I have been trying for 2 years. After 2 miscarriages, and much trauma, I am now on clomid, going second month. It is hard and disheartning specially when you really want babies. There isn't a moment that goes by and I don't think about What am I doing wrong? Will we ever have kids? Could I be pregnant? Will I have another miscarriage? Am I unhealthy and just don't know it yet? I difinately feel you guys...Sending you all the best

My fincee and I are also trying to get pregnant and I have seen a doctor and he said it might help to loose weight and I have lost a little but I have a not had a period in a while and doctor said being over weight might be it but not shure. So dont feel bad you arent the only one in the same position. Good luck to you
