I am soooo tired of this being all I think about, I cry when my AF shows, I just found out my S-I-L is pregnant again, I cried, I think about it all the time, I am trying my best to let go and let God but why can't I stop thinking about it... I have been actively TTC since about July of 09, I know some people go for years but it is so hard bc I feel like at 22 I shouldn't be having these problems, I have several friends that I went to school with that got pregnant in their teens and some are having babies now.... Everywhere I go babies, babies, babies... Whats wrong with me?! :'o(

It's very hard not to think about it all the time. I have a 4 year old and when I found out I was pregnant with her I was shocked. I wasn't even thinking about it even though we were actively TTC. Now that we're TTC conceive again, I can't think of anything else. We haven't even been trying for a month. I can't imagine it taking 6. Just be patient if you can. Let go and just start living. If you're still not pregnant after a year, go get checked out. But stay strong and be healthy. The baby will come.

I feel the same way! I've been TTC for 4 months now and it's all I think about. When AF shows, I cry. I'm still crying/in a bad mood from her showing up Friday. And it kills me too when all these other people turn up pregnant--- some by total surprise because they were trying NOT to get pregnant--- and I want it so bad and it just isn't happening right now. I'm 27 and I really thought I'd get pregnant right away.... but supposedly it takes lots healthy young people several months to conceive. Try to stay positive. Taking vitamins, charting/temping & taking OPKs makes me a little more obsessive, but it also makes me feel more in control of this crazy situation.

Best luck & lots of baby dust to you.... hopefully you and I will both be getting our BFPs in the next few weeks!

I have been learning so much about the whole process, I always thought most healthy women in their 20's shouldn't have problems getting pregnant, Boy was I in for a rude awakening! I am on CD 5 right now so hopefully this is the month for both of us, it sounds like we have a lot in common! You are in my thoughts and prayers and I wish you the best in your Baby Making Journey! If you ever need to vent I will definately listen! God Bless and Best of Luck!

Thanks for replying, I actually have already been checked out, my cycles had been out of whack for a long time and when I went to my OB/GYN I had to have a VU and found out that I have a really thin uterine lining so they put me on HRT for a couple of months hoping it would straighten out and I have been off of them a couple months now and still irregular... But I am just trying to Let go and let God, it is just so hard when everywhere I go I see babies and I am so ready for my little miracle! I wish you the best of luck on your journey to #2! God Bless!

I have to say, I've learned a lot, too. I'm so happy I discovered temping and charting and OPKs and this community.... it makes this very tough time a little bit easier.

We've got to stay positive--- this is our month! When do you expect to ovulate? My thoughts & prayers are with you, too! Best of luck & LOTS of baby dust!!!!

We have been TTC since July 09 as well, I actually did have a deficiency that cause my uterine wall to be too thin and I had to go on HRT for a couple of months to try and straighten things out, my cycles are still kind of irregular and I actually go to my OB/Gyn on the 19th (ovulation day) to find out how everything is going and the next step to take... My thoughts and prayers are with you and I'm claiming this is our month, how neat would that be if we both got BFP at the same time! Good Luck and God Bless! Keep me posted!!!!

Thank you for your response, You're absolutely right I shouldn't let it consume me and I am working on it sometime that switch in my head seems to get stuck and its hard to just flip it off! It is such a hard thing to go through and sometimes you feel like no one around you understands, that is why I am so thankful to find this board, to know I'm not alone (granted I always have God and he is all I need, but you know what I mean, someone to discuss it with, get input from) I appreciate your post and Congrats on overcoming it! God Bless and take care!
