Hey Lottie, sorry you're going through all this. I'm in a similar boat and I know how hard it can be to stay positive. Its been 2 years and 8 months that we've been trying and we've had 2 miscarriages. Just starting fertility testing at the end of this month as I wanted to wait for a year after the last miscarriage. I didn't think we had a fertility problem until an entire year of trying went by and nothing happened....it wasn't overly difficult getting pregnant until after the 2nd miscarriage (1st pregnancy took 4 months to conceive and the 2nd took 8 months). I'm not much help I know, but I thought you might seek comfort in the idea that you're not alone. I know it all seems unfair, but I do believe that everything happens for a reason and that we'll both have our time. Best of luck to you.

It helps to find someone else in the same boat. Everyone around me is having babies now...I'm happy for them, but it sucks wanting something so bad and seeing everyone else get it. You'll see me around the forums often enough, I've found it to be really helpful!

Hey, have you tried accupunture at all? With my first baby I was on clomid and a month away from starting IVF. I went to see a zita west approved accupuncturist and fell pregnant that month, it was the nly thing we did differently.
We started ttc in january for number 2 and in March I decided to go back and see her so I felt proactive and fell pregnant that month after seeing her. One month success both times.
I know what it feels like to have to endure everyone elses bfps and wonder when will it be my turn and people saying "relax and it will happen" made me want to slap them! Accupuncture really saved my sanity x

do u remember me? We both mc on second month of clomid. Last month was my last cycle of clomid and nothing so I know how u feel. I had my heart set on IVF but I was told to wait one normal cycle. I was convinced af will show its ugly head but guess what it never came. Got my BFP this morning. Don't give up hope Lottie! I can't believe it happened on the month I didn't take clomid.
also remepuberty I'm 41...so have faith.
i have a long way to go and praying this bean sticks xx
