Pretty fed up with this TTC business.

It's been 14 months. No PCOS, fertility tests for me and DH all come back clear.

I temp and use OPK's to make sure we BD at the right time and.. nothing.

I'm 18 days late for AF this month, 17 days late for last AF.

BFN after bfn after bfn. Don't know where I'm going wrong?

I don't really stress about it, I got myself into the habit of always assuming I was never pregnant each month and now don't POAS until I'm a week late.

Friends and family seem to be popping out babies left right and centre and as much as I'm happy for them, each time I hear how they conceived in the first or second month of trying it's like a stab in the chest.

Is anyone else out there also stuck in limbo?

So sorry patiently flowers

I’m not quite in the same boat as you, ttc#2 for about 8 months (I deliberately don’t keep count), but I didn’t want to leave you without an answer.

There are lots of us in limbo one way or another.

What tests have you had done? Are you definitely ovulating? Have you spoken to your GP about the possibility of IVF?

Are you doing it a day or two before ovulation too?

Sorry to hear this @PatientlyWaiting11
I feel your pain, truly I do.
We've been TTC 18 months now and some days it gets easier, then other days it's crushingly painful.
I have family and friends popping out babies too and holding them feels so bittersweet.
But know that we are all in it together and all here for eachother x flowers
