Hi Rachel,

Sorry to hear its been difficult for you with all those baby questions. I can imagine it can be even more frustrating being asked over and over again!

It's good to hear your husband is protecting you with answering the questions. :)

Its the same for us and you can see people doing the math in their heads when they ask you how long you've been married and the next statement usually is, 'so you haven't had children yet then?'. We tend to tell people a generic truth, e.g 'we've been trying to for x amount of years and haven't been able to' and depending on their response decide whether it's safe to give them more detail. If they don't know how to handle it or just don't understand I just say something like 'it does happen, look at the people in the bible and also I know a few people that haven't ever been able to have children so it does happen' and for me at least they've gained a bit more understanding in their 'fertile world mind'. What I've found is most of the time people have been quite open to us being honest with them. Ive also had lovely surprises when some faithful older ladies upon hearing of our situation said that they would hope and pray on our behalf and encourage me every time I see them.

But it's never easy...I think I've just come to accept that this is my season in life at the moment where times will be difficult and if other people don't understand it or don't want to understand I know that they are not people I can share about it with.

You know what you can handle and God is your protector too; but I know it's not easy!

Let us know about your progesterone cream. I think I might have a progesterone problem too, but my consultant doesnt seem to think its an issue...having to just trust, submit and be at peace that the care that we're receiving from the nhs is all in Gods hands.

I'll let you know how it goes with the progesterone cream definitely. What symptoms do you get that make you wonder if progesterone might be a problem? I get bleeding before and usually after AF. I also get very sore bbs and bad PMT (some months is worse than others) I think those are the two main things, but the bleeding in particular can be related to low progesterone.
