My dh and I baby number 2.
I am of course so grateful the joy that our dd (2yrs) has given us and am so thankful to have her.
I can't help however to feel hollow as I struggle to complete our family. Cycle 11 of trying and not prevented since dd was born.
My tests all came back fine. Dh to have his tests done.
This process is so heartbreaking every month another let down.
This is for all those ttc no#2 who secretly shed tears. Feel like a failure. That I cannot give my dd the sibling she longs for. sad
Any advice? Anyone in same boat? My af due tomorrow. Bfn so far.

Hi there

There are a few people in the same boat. I haven't been trying as long as you but just got AF on CD38(!) and also TTC #2.

It's easier to deal with when you know there are other people going through it too. Come and join some of the threads on here, we will cheer you up I promise flowers

I will happily share my virtual wine and virtual chocolate with you grin

Thanks for you reply. Well AF has shown up a day early. ��
Onto cycle 11. Hubby so calm and collected about it all. It will happen he says. But dd was conceived on 6th month. So hard...

Just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. I know how you feel. DD is 2. I got pregnant again but miscarried 4 weeks ago. Feeling a bit lost but there are lots of threads on here with women who know exactly what you are going through. Come on over to the Ttc relaxed thread. It's full of wonderful women who keep me going!
