Trying to conceive?


This might be an emotional topic and difficult to discuss but I thought some people might have some important information and experiences to share. 

I had a miscarriage a year ago. It was early but still devastating and emotional. We have been trying again since then with no other pregnancies. I was hanging a lot of hope and comfort on the fact that we were pregnant once before and therefore the "plumbing" must be functioning. But that comfort is becoming less and less effective as the months tick past with no luck. 

I am well into my 30s so my clock is ticking like a time bomb. We have just started appointments at a fertility clinic.

Is this a topic people are interested in talking about? And sharing their stories? I can share my experiences in trying to conceive if people want to talk about it.

Also trying

Thank you for sharing your story. Yes, it is an emotional topic but it helps to talk to others and sharing experiences. With in the last two years all of my friends have had babies and my sister-in-law is due in just over a month. We have been trying and as I too am well into my 30's am planning on going to my doctor soon to check everything out.

Sorry to hear you are having a hard time trying to conceive. Just keep doing what your doing and don't give up. I will say a prayer for you right now:)

I'm so sorry to hear this. It doesn't matter when in the pregnancy it happens, miscarriages can be very painful and they are unfortunately very common. The best piece of advice I can give you (besides to keep trying) is to let yourself grieve your loss and let your mind process what happened so you can get yourself in a positive frame of mind again. Pregnancy happened before so you know it is possible and it can happen again. Then, once you have had time to heal, do something, ANYTHING, to keep your mind occupied with other things and do not allow any fertility or age stress to pop into your head. The stress alone will keep it from happening. You have to find a way to relax. You know it can happen so let go of the stress and don't tell yourself any further pregnancies will end badly just because this one did. Be positive, as positive as you can be. It's so hard not to hear that clock ticking but you HAVE to silence it. It happens to so many of us. You're not alone and there are plenty of us who can share in your grief and worry and also be there to cheer you up and cheer you on. This place is filled with awesome chicks (just like you) who are here to support you.
I truly wish you the very best. Be kind to yourself. Xo

I am so sorry for the loss of your baby. *hugs* Hang in there. It's only considered an infertility problem if you are trying regularly for over 12 months.

I feel you on the age front. I just turned 30 and my husband and I are desperate for kids, but now isn't the right time and waiting is so difficult for both of us. Sending healthy baby pregnant thoughts your way, hope the universe listens!

I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage. Trying to conceive can be stressful at times. I find that once you start relaxing maybe take a nice vacation it helps. It took us 6 months to conceive and I remember that once I accepted that it will happen when it happen I conceive.

Now this may sounds crazy but a lot of friend of mine went babysitting and then conceive afterwards. Some say that it was all connected but who knows.

Sending you positive vibes :)

Sending you lots of hugs!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine what it's like but i can only understand how devastating it is. Keep your nose up and keep trying! This experience will only make you a stronger and better woman!

I understand the hurt and frustration

My partner and I had an appointment at a fertility clinic recently since we'd been trying for quite a while. I left feeling more depressed than I was when I went in. It would end up costing over $10,000 for insemination and we don't have that kind of money right now. The chance of conception with their help isn't much better than trying regularly.. they said at best it was 20%. I'm sorry, I don't want to discourage you more. It's worth looking into if you can afford it. My esthetician had her baby with the help of a fertility clinic.

Good news story

I have friends who adopted a beautiful baby girl. I don't know what their fertility story was or why they decided to adopt. But just as they were finishing the process (It takes a loooong time) she found out she was pregnant! The pressure was off and the stress was gone and it happened for them. Don't give up!

Did they still adopt? They must have been thrilled!
