Trying to conceive

I'm new to this site and TTCing in general. Me and my partner have been trying for about 5 months now, and i think i might go insane haha.
Every month i think its our month and have some craxy symptoms then nothing, AF shows up to ruin the day!
I talk to my partner about it but i feel like i'm constantly talking about it like a broken record! We want to keep it a secret untill we are actually pregnant so i cant talk to anyone about my frustrations!
Anyone else go this every month?

your not alone myself and my partner have been trying for baby #1 for 2 years now its frustrating and i think the same as you. but thats what we are all here for to help each other through get advice and vent when we want to. i have pcos so is very very hard for me to get pregnant and because my cycles are all over the place i get excited each month but then af shows and it kills me.
just know your not alone and you have people to talk to here x

its very tough now we have to go to the infertility clinic we have our appointment 2nd September so not long but will finally get some more answers. its taken so long to get to this point but i am a true believer in everything happens for a reason and when we finally have a beautiful baby it will be right.
just keep strong its hard but you know where we all are if you need support.

You're not alone at all. I'm going nuts myself. Been trying since our wedding in April and each month I get new symptoms and then it arrives and i get sad but then i start all over again. Only this month i'm two weeks late and have loads of "symptoms" but getting BFN's every time I test. I went to the doctor and he pretty much laughed at me and said I was "stressed" and was probably experiencing a delayed period and to go back in 10 days time. I'm so frustrated and dont feel listened to at all. Like you said, its not easy to keep speaking to your partner about it as you dont want to annoy them. I'd be happy to chat, for my sanity and yours! Katie

Doctors are arseholes, i suffered with my periods for years to be told each time i went it was "just hormones" or "they cant be that bad" with just pills thrown at me. Turns out i have endometriosis.
I ahve the same talk with my partner every month and we always agree not to get our hopes up but when we get to the 2WW its a different story. He hates seeing me so upset so i just dont bring it up anymore.
Thanks for helping ladies its much appreciated.

Definitely not on your own. We've been ttc #1 for 15 months with no joy. Every month it gets harder and harder. DH keeps telling me not to get upset and it will happen when the time is right but it's just so difficult. We've just started with the doctors. Waiting on blood results and SA. So far she has been pretty good but she has said it will be 2 years before we get referred anywhere. I've found this forum really helps with all the support from people who are going through the same thing, especially as we too are keeping ttc to ourselves. Baby dust to everyone x
