Hello Ladies,

I used to be a member about 6 years ago and this board helped me a lot at that time,  now I am back again.  A little background, my husband and I have been trying to have a baby for 15 years now with no success.  I was able to get pregnant for the 1st time in 2007, but sadly lost the baby at 12weeks, then nothing for 4 years.  Got pregnant again in August of 2011 and did not make it past 7 weeks. We have been trying diligently to get pregnant again.  We have done all the rounds of fertility drugs and IUI's, everything short of IVF.   I am 34 and he is 36.  Doctors have found nothing wrong with either of us other than my husband has a slightly low sperm count.  We are heading toward IVF this summer.  We have yet to find a doctor that can help us.  We have been through numerous over the years.  We have been to several specialists and I am beginning to feel that it is hopeless, that we will never be parents and I spend most of my time crying and depressed because of it.

All of the trying and frustration has been weighing heavily on me lately and just need someone to talk to that knows of the struggles of trying to concieve.  Everyone keeps saying "Don't give up, It will happen",  but all of these people with good intentions have children and have never had the problem of getting pregnant, so I am just feeling down right now and know how helpful this site was for me during my miscarriages and needed an ear.  Sorry to drag on so. 

Thanks for listening.

Welcome and I am sorry for everything you have been through.  I have been ttc for a little over a year and a half with 2 m/c's at 8 wks.  This is nothing compared to what you have been through.  I am also feeling depressed over everything.  It is so frustrating when trying so long for something that seems easy for everyone else.  You know that people mean well when they tell you things like "don't give up, it will happen", but it just frustrates you more because they have no idea.  And it is exhausting to continue to try every month and put your body through hormone and emotional hell just to try to get 1 baby, which this is what our bodies are made for.  Sometimes I just want a break (not much of an option for me though).  I am sure you have had tests done.  What type of testing have you had done?
