Trying to conceive

I came off the pill last sept and I can't quite believe it's not happened for us!!
I go back to work after the summer hols in 2 weeks and feel really down that I won't be making an announcement!! I thought we'd cracked it this month!!
Hubby doesn't even realise how down I am because he's always said "If it happens it happens"! easy to say when you start trying but after a year I'm worrying it will never happen and time is running out for me as I turned 40 in May!!
I really didn't want to have to start down the route of going to docs for tests but not sure what else to do now??!!
sorry to be a downer but you're all so supportive and hubby just has no idea how I feel each month when af arrives!
hope everyone is well xx

I'm sorry you are feeling so down Carioke, I think it hits all of us some days then others we are better able to cope with the whole ttc rollercoaster. My husband doesn't have the sense of urgency I have as he is ten years younger than me, but at 38 I also feel time is running out and I get very sad at the thought. Lets hope you have some good news soon, keep your chin up hun we are all here for you, and eachother.xx

Completely understand, I was really bad last month just obsessing constantly. We are on month 14 now and hubby is having to keep me motivated, I am ready to give up but he keeps telling me no a few more months.

Hi Carioke.Don't rule out going to see your GP. We first went after 9 months TTC because I was very nearly 35. After a referal and a couple more viists to the hospital I finally started clomid 6 months later. 3 months in I got lucky. If I hadn't gone to ask for help we'd probably still be trying now. The hospital would have moved faster if we'd been trying longer so if you do go to see a doctor lie and add a bit on. xXx

Please don't worry hun - I came off the pill in the May and we started TTC in the October - it was 17 months until we conceived.
I felt like I had tried everything. Vitamins etc, keeping a chart of temp and ewcm etc, clear Blue digital ovulation monitor. In the end I decided to stop everything and said to DH that it must be stressing me out too much. I was really disappointed when I hadn't got a Christmas BFP so it was shortly after than I decided to stop. We went on Holiday at the end of April and I really didn't think about TTC - we just had a lovely holiday, plenty of BDing - none of it pre-meditated - and then in the June we found out we were expecting DS
I have only just come back on here so I'm sorry i don't know your history but I genuinely believe for me - having that break away from all the monitoring and symptom spotting was what did the trick.
I hope your BFP comes soon.

Thankyou so much for all your replys ladies, your words of wisdom really do help!
I went for a chat at the docs 2 months ago and she basically said stop worrying about it and it will happen. I don't think I stress about about it all til af arrives, that's when I get down. Even hubby said he'd thought we'd had a good go at it this month, I even used concieve +.
We're going away for a few days next week so I'm going to try and just enjoy not being pregnant and just drink!!!!
hope you are all well xx

Hey KatRob, how you doing? I think we joined at roughly the same time. I am still here too! Its a rollercoaster isnt it. Have you been to the gp? I am not sure if I said but we did and we have male factor issues. We have a referral in Oct, it really does feel better when you can get the ball moving. I am sorry Carioke that your gp said stop worrying that is so annoying. Could you get a second opinion I have realised you have got to get assertive to get anything.
All the best everyone

I think I will go again because you are entitled to help after a year!
I just worry hubby would prob rather think 'oh well it's not meant to be' rather than have to get tested.
I was just saying on another thread how I've started to hate this rollercoaster journey but don't know where to go now!
I'm such a moaner this week!!!
