I turned to my sister for support b/c I"m not sure how I feel about ttc again. The meds made me so sick every single day I took them. And I took them for about 5 months! I was miserable. It was to the point where I wouldn't leave the house for the hour or so after I took them b/c I knew I"d have to run to the bathroom! Her reaction to my request for help made me so mad!!! She told me about her m/c several months ago which helped, and then proceeded to tell me she was frustrated and upset b/c she didn't get pregnant on the first cycle she was allowed to ttc after her m/c. (Apparently w/ all of her other pregnancies, she got pg on the first try.) She said when she got her period after the 2ww it was like the m/c all over again.
Hello?? It took me a year to get pg (and only then after taking that horrible medication), and then I have to deal with a 50% chance of m/c for each and every pregnancy if I manage to get pg. She has beautiful children already, and I can't even have one child! The doctor originally gave me the go ahead to ttc after first AF, but once he talked to me about how I was emotionally, he suggested waiting at least a year.
I just wish she'd look at the big picture. Waiting a few months for a BFP is nothing- she has nothing to complain about!!!
