Re: Getting stressed about ttc

I just read your post - I hope you've gotten pregnant! I know how hard it is. I was just saying to my husband that I feel like everyone is posting to Facebook that they got pregnant, and it makes me resent my friends because we are struggling to get pregnant a second time. I have a 2-year old son who was conceived with Clomid and Metformin (I have PCOS). After starting the medications, I got pregnant the second month. I also had a Mirena IUD right after he was born and had it removed in May of this year. We have been TTC every month since then - actively trying (charting, ovulation tests, Clomid at muliplie doses, metformin), and last cycle I even had 3 transvaginal ultrasounds to track my ovulation progress. I'm so frustrated. I feel like if it doesn't happen by the end of the year then maybe it wasn't meant to be, and I should just be happy with the wonderful son that I have. Every one of my cycles is different. I never seem to ovulate at a normal or regular time, and that makes TTC like trying to hit a moving target. I feel your pain. Hopefully you and I will be posting soon to Facebook that we are pregnant!
