New to the board and discouraged

I've been lurking for a while but haven't posted yet. We've been trying for a year now for our first child, with no luck. I am fairly certain I'm ovulating regularly - I've used an ovulation predictor and can recognize the physical symptoms. I'm not sure what the problem is. I'm almost 35, so I'm staring to get concerned. I went to the doctor to discuss fertility and she scheduled me for several tests. I'm going in for a blood test tomorrow, and will do an HSG radiology test, where they inject a dye and X-ray your uterus. I've heard it's painful. Has anyone had this done before?
I've had a rough week. I was 3 days late and was hopeful, even when the test was negative, because I thought perhaps I had just tested too early. But my period came the other day. So I'm pretty down about the whole thing. I hope the tests don't indicate anything serious.
