Hi ladies,


These past few days have been really depressing for me. Everyday, I wonder, "Am I or Am I not?"

I don't know that there is much I can say to comfort you, but I think that your being proactive is a step in the right direction.

((HUGS)) Rachel!


I am sorry your TTC journey has been long and painful. I know that when all you want is YOUR BFP, its hard not to be affected by other people's pregnancies and situations. I am TTC #4, but it has never taken me less than 18 mos to conceive. I have had one tubal pg and

You are definitely not alone. I was just crying to DH this weekend about this same thing. I keep trying to find a way to come to terms with people out there getting pg left and right who should not be having kids. Then you look at people who have loving, stable homes and desperately want a baby and they can't. It's just not right. Even with me, I got pg immediately when I was married to my ex (who, by the way, was abusive and addicted to drugs and alcohol). Now I am married to this amazing man who deserves to have children of his own, and we can't seem to get pg. It's not right.


I don't know what to say to help you feel better. When a woman is ready to have a baby, it somehow becomes the foremost thought on her mind. There's no way to heal the pain of not being able to fulfill that desire. All I can offer is a shoulder to cry on. Please feel free to come here ANY time and vent. That's what we're here for!

Big Hugs. Vent away, that's why we're here and we've all been there.


One question I did have though: Did you have your husband tested? Seriously. You can immediately rule out 50% of the equation in a very simple and inexpensive test. Please, I urge you, have him tested!

Hi Rachel. I'm sorry you've been going thru a tough time. I know I haven't been trying for long (a little over 3 months) all I hear is all kinds of ladies getting preggo but not me. I just recently found out friends of ours, knowing we've been trying, started trying too without telling us and now she's over 3 months along. It was def a shock and a blow to my ego but I can't blame them for wanting kids. I've known quite a few friends that got pregnant when not planning and I have trouble understand why it comes so easily to those not wanting it and it seems so difficult for those who want it more than anything. I hope you have that kind of luck soon. Keep me posted and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
