We're still in the no-luck, good-grief-we're-surrounded-by-insanely-fertile-people-you'd-think-it-would-rub-off stage.

Kristen, I am really hoping that it will be your turn next.

We're in the "not really trying yet, but would be pleasantly surprised" camp. We have a couple more months until our youngest turns two. I was hoping for a 3 year ago gap this time around, but we're not always the best at our timing. I'm trying to do NFP because birth control really messes with me, but last month my period started 4 days late, and I think I ovulated 4 days early this month. Oh boy! I guess if it's meant to happen now it will!

I am with Kristen, but not so long trying yet. This is my eighth cycle TTC (since June), and so far nothing. I've been charting, but this month I decided to bring out the big guns--I bought the CBE fertility monitor, a tube of pre-seed, and started taking B6 because my LP has been 11-12 days (compared to 14-15 days in the cycles I was TTC my first).

And meanwhile, all my friends are having babies, all of Charlie's classmates are getting little brothers and sisters, and the entire staff of my office building seems to be pregnant, too. It's very frustrating.

Jadzia, it is so hard to play the waiting game when you are ready to be pregnant *NOW*!

It's been a long, frustrating trek, but we've developed a wicked sense of humor about all of the indignities that go with infertility treatment as a couple (because we have the extra fun of BOTH of us having issues.)

Kristen, I hope that after all you both have endured there is a major blessing coming your way.

We stopped TTC after two MC's and me turning 43. We plan on adopting through the foster care system, and are weeks away from being officially certified.
