I frequented the TTC message board for the first three months or so of TTC. Now my husband and I are on month 11 of trying and it's getting exhausting. Every cycle I have timed, used OPK, and I temped a few cycles as well. Our timing was always great but no luck. The only thing that seemed odd was that I don't typically O until day 21 of a 30/31 day cycle so I was concerned about a short luteal phase. Cycles were consistently 28-33 days until recently when I started getting 34 and even 38 day cycles. My gyno has run tests on myself and DH and everything checks out. This cycle she put me on clomid (50mg) to hopefully help me ovulate sooner, since that seems to be the only thing out of the ordinary. We are now in the TTW on our first clomid cycle so fingers crossed. Gyno says she will go through three cycles of clomid with us and if we dont get pregnant we are off to the fertility specialist to see if IUI is a better solution.
I know I'm one month short of 12 but when I tried to get back into the normal TTC board it just stung too much to see everyone on their 3 and 4th cycle trying. So hopefully it's ok if I jump over here. I know lots of people have struggled longer than I have but Im starting to experience the envy and bitterness when I see others get pregnant (I hate that about myself!) and frustration at having done what seems like everything in my power to get pregs with no luck. Also our "sex duties" as my husband calls them have stopped being fun and more like a chore so that sucks.
Anyways, I work for a treatment center and my husband is in law school. DH is 28 and I am 30. We have two cats we adore and a pretty great life (even with TTC frustrations). Looking forward to getting to know you all.
Me: 30 | DH: 28
