Hi All
Just need someone to moan to today. Been ttc on and off since january and properly since July and feel like nothing is happening. One of my close friends has announced she's pregnant after trying for ages which is amazing, and another girl from work has just announced she's pregnant too and although I'm chuffed for them I can't help feeling sad that it's not my turn yet! I know we all feel like this and want it so badly but I feel so sad today sad
I'm nearly 37 and worry that it's going to take years or we won't be able to have a baby. I'm due AF tomorrow and certain I'm not preggo so on to another month. I'm just fed up with it now. I don't know how people go through this for years it must be torture! sadsad

Sorry to hear you’re strugging, all the waiting and uncertainty is horrible sad

I’ve been off the pill since June and haven’t even had a period yet, which according to my doctor means I won’t have ovulated in that time at all. I find myself constantly checking for any signs - signs of ovulation, signs of an imminent period, signs of pregnancy. I’m only 23 and all the blood tests came back normal, if I haven’t menstruated by January they’ll refer me. It’s exhausting, I already cry myself to sleep so I can’t imagine what it’s like for others who have been doing this for years.

I hope you find talking about it helps, you’re not alone flowers

Thanks. It must be really hard if not having periods and have no clue on what's going on so I feel for you on that. At 23 time is on your side massively so hopefully your period will just arrive one day. Is there nothing you can take to help kick start them?

If there's nothing to report by January then I'll ask about that, they've said they want to scan my ovaries to check what's going on in there so I think it's worth asking if there's anything they can prescribe.

I definitely understand about other people's pregnancy announcements, my facebook and twitter feeds are full of beautiful newborns and it's so hard
