So disappointed

I have been trying for 10 months now and no luck. Oh sure I had one month where my home preg test showed positive. I remember I was so happy and then a week later I got my period. My doctor said that I probably had small pregnancy and it did not hold. So now I am trying clomid that gives me hot flashes, my skin breaks out, and I am having mood swings and to top it off my husband thinks it is not a big deal. No don't get me wrong he says he wants a baby, but when I try talking to him he shows no emotions. Our next step is

I can't help with most of the situation, but my DH never is anywhere near as excited as I'd like him to be when I start talking about a baby.

Hello zvlk, I wanted to share with you my personal success story and maybe it will work for you or even just give you strength in knowing that alternatives are still out there.

My DH and I believe completely that a product called Instead Softcup is responsible for our success. I know how many women are struggling with getting pregnant, and if I can offer any hope or ideas of things to try, I just want to put it out there.

When we started trying for #2 last August (07), I think we subconsciously thought - "oh this will be easy." Well, fast forward nearly 6 months and no positive pregnancy test. We are talking ovulation monitoring, EVERYTHING. Granted, I am now 35 and obviously our lives are a bit more stressful with work, having a toddler, etc. But still, it was becoming frustrating, especially feeling that we were doing everything we could do to "time" things right. We were truly becoming burnt out when a friend of mine mentioned that she was working with a company who had a product that had been getting a reputation on blogs and fertility message boards for helping women to conceive. Of course, having serious baby on the brain and desperate to try anything, I went home and Googled it and found many stories on other blogs from women who had had success conceiving with the help of the Instead Softcup.

My friend gave me some samples so we thought, what do we have to lose? The next ovulation period, immediately after BD-ing, (meaning I had it on the nightstand ready and inserted it right away), we used Softcup. We used it twice that month and two weeks later, got the wonderful POSITIVE pregnancy test we have been waiting for! Again, I just wanted to share our success in the hopes that it can help other couples struggling to get that positive test themselves. I was lucky to have a friend turn me on to Softcups, but I have found out that they can be purchased at many drug stores, Wal Mart, and online at www.softcup.com, but I just heard that Target may not be carrying them anymore. Anyways, they are in the feminine products section, because their intended use is an alternative to tampons (which by the way they are great for too!). Don't be deterred by what they look like (literally like a bendable soft cup), as they are easy to use, VERY comfortable and most importantly SAFE (I have researched and gotten inside info from my friend who has insider knowledge because of the work arrangement). Good luck and happy pregnancy vibes!
