Re: Getting stressed about ttc

First I would like to start with the fact that you are NOT alone in the world on this issue! My husband and I struggled with fertility issues of our own for 2-1/2 years. I know EXACTLY how you are feeling! I felt depressed my self, and everytime another friend or someone I knew was pregnant I cried. To help myself, I even deactivated my facebook account, which did help to eliminate some of my stress. (Try it, it will help) I started to focus on me and my husband and enriching our life and relationship. You may want to consider stopping tracking your cycles and only keep track of the days you start and end your periods as well as the days you have sex, in case you do get pregnant you will have a better idea of a conception date. For myself, I gave up the tracking ovulation, tracking sex, everything. For me, I got pregnant twice with the help of fertility drugs because I was told I don't ovulate on my own, and I miscarried with both pregnancies. After my D&C with the second pregnancy my OB/GYN wanted to do a HSG (Hysterosalpingogram), and I guess that must have cleared out my tubes because I ovulate on my own now.
There is hope out there for everyone! Don't give up on your dream! You are not alone, don't ever think that way! Put some extra love and energy into your kids and your hubby and leave the miracle in God's hands. Good Luck!!
