Welcome Tanya & Chrissy,

I am glad that we can all find somewhere to get support. It feels like I am the only one struggling sometimes. Yes Melissa I think that I am going to research a dr. that will give me the clomid. I think that seems a more logical step then waiting on edge each month....and then getting the big let down. I am learning to chart, but wow what a task!! How do you keep up with everything melissa? Tanya and Chrissy I do not know much about PCOS, but it sounds like after being diagnosed you are both on a positive TTC journey! I too am just waiting for AF to come this weekend, and start all over. Everyone says just stop worring it will happen, your stressing too much, and the one I love just stop pressuring it and one day whaaalah your pregnant. HMMM but as you all know how do you turn those emotions off? I know I should not worry, I know I should just "let it happen if its going to". But then I don't feel like I am doing everthing I can and I feel the what if's after. And yes tanya I am stressing poor DH to the point I never thought I would hear him say "oh its that time again?" and I am like yes now hurry hurry...one more time please...you can do it...LMAO I don't even enjoy it anymore and I hate that! It sounds like all of us have great partners and that is a positive. I think that they feel just as much pressure as we do but they are so strong with their emotions and tend to always be our rocks!!
Sorry I would of showed you guys the ticker, but I am glad to see you got it. It is always interesting to see it.
Sending you lots of baby dust Chrissy for spring break!!

Hi, I'm Angie. I have been married to DH for almost 4 years and have 1 son who is 19 months old. We tried for 3 years for him and now have been ttc again for 8 months. I have read some of your threads and a part of me says I shouldn't be here because i'm not having the same problems as most of you. My periods before were out of whack after I went off birth controll but have been normal for 4 months now. I get it anywhere between the 20th and 25th of every month and having sex every other day when I'm sapposed to be ovulating. Well Feb came and went and I started to think "oh i'm pregnant" I don't know if it was my thinking that I may be pregnant or what but I started to feel that "pregnant" feeling. I had it all, sore boobs, headaches, backaches, Very very tired, heartburn and waking up at night to pee. I went to the dollar store and bought the cheap pregnancy tests and both of them were a big fat negitive. So I went a couple days later and bought 3 more, they too were all negitive. So I thaught maybe I need to get a good one and went out and bought a first response one. I took the test Monday night and it was negitive and then again on Tues morning and same thing. I am super late (I think) I'm not so good on figuring all that out. I have one more test to take and don't know if I should wait longer or just trust all the test's I have taken. I have been normal in my periods so I don't have a explination of what's going on here. I just turned 35 on Monday so I feel like now I'm old and I won't have anymore children. I feel lucky to have my son who is my world but I wanted a big family. I guess I just got started late in life, but I wanted to find that "Mr. Right" before I decided to have kids, I guess I just never thaught it would take me 30 years to do it. Funny how life has it's own course for you.

Hi Angie,
You may not be going through exactly what the rest of us are, but you are in the same boat as TTC. I as well have children from a previous marriage though. I am 35 and going through the feeling of not being able to have another child. So I do share your feelings about that. My periods have always been regular I just had a tubal after my last child that I had reversed last year. Being as late as you are I would probably make an appt for blood work it may show where a home test does not. I hope you decide to stay so we can all see your progress, but if you choose different buddies I wish you the best of luck on your journey.

Tanya, thanks for the info about the ticker (we'll see if I did it right!) Smile My DH is wonderful about all this! He is very supportive and yet never tries to act as though he knows how I feel. He's even admitted to me that he could never really feel the same since it's just different for men than it is for women! Before we downsized, he had let me buy a crib, play yard, high chair, bottles, etc (we didn't anticipate taking this long, so I was trying to plan ahead). He still lets me look at the baby stuff when I go shopping (can't explain why or how, but it is somehow therapeutic - I guess it keeps the hope alive). The best was when we were watching a movie and there was scene with a Dad talking to his very upset little girl. She had been adopted and was feeling out of place and ridiculed by other kids. Well, he was comforting her and telling her how much he loved her - my DH actually got teary eyed and said that it made him want a little one to be able to love and comfort. Yes, he's wonderful! Love

As far as the PCOS, clomid, and the cysts, I'll have to check into that when I have insurance again. If I'm lucky, that won't be necessary Wink

Welcome Angie

Even tho everyone has a different story and is on their own path it all comes back to the same intersection: TTC, and we all understand what that feels like. Gina, I use to feel like that, hate doing anything actually dreaded it but that was because of different reasons due to the endometreosis, but we figured out how to make it exciting again and not feel like work or ttc is the only reason we bd, hope that you can find that again too. Chrissy i'm so glad you got the ticker working, and ur welcome. My family is supersticious so we not allowed to buy anything before hand, but I do still have everything we got the last few times I have been pregnant, tho I can't really look at it, I don't have the heart. Puzzled haha my husband gets just as teary eyed about stuff like that, when we go away or something and there are people with a baby and the dad has the baby he gets a far away look in his eye and I know what he is thinking and feeling. We have also learnt on this journey never to hide our feelings from each other, always be honest, we almost got a divorce from each one trying to hide our feeling. Chrissy loads and loads of baby dust for you for the coming few days. Wink

Okay, may need to get the kleenex box before the day is over. Just found out that one of my good friends from college had her baby - 3 weeks early. I am very happy for them. They are a great family and deserve it - just makes it hard on people like me (us) for a little bit. I know in my heart that someday, I'll be a mommy, just wonder how long and what I'm going to have to do to get there. I guess there is still hope for this cycle. Supposedly, one day till ovulation. I do know that something is happening because the acne that I have with PCOS is flaring up again (haven't had issues with it for a few months, thank goodness). Hormones somewhere are changing! Just hoping for the best - for all of us!!!

It is nice to meet all of you. I hope you are all having a great weekend. I completely understand about everyone having babies. My two really good friends just had baby #3. They are both very supportive for me but they didn't have any problems. My sister is expecting#4 and isn't happy about it, she thought they were done with the 3. She is due in May and is finally starting to be a little happy about it. I told her I would love to be in her shoes.
Any way. GL and Baby dust to all.
