Trying to have a baby is not easy.

A lot of people think that when you try and have a baby, you just have unprotected sex and the deed is done. That is not the case. I have 4 beautiful children and I had them with my ex husband. My children were conceived fast. I mean within a month or two, however this time around it is different. My husband Jon has no children of his own. I honestly want to have at least one baby with him. We have been trying for well over a year now.  I used to temp and chart every single day but it got to be sooo much, now I just check my cervical position and CM. Now that I have charted for so long, I can pretty much pinpoint when I am ovulating. I always get this pain on my right side too. I am thinking that may be my "dominant"ovary.
Pregnancy Tests I buy
Evey month seems to be a letdown. The earliest that you can test is about 10 days after ovulation. Every month, I get this obsessive peeing on a stick disorder and I buy 25 Pregnancy tests from Ebay for $6. Not bad huh? I am not the only one with this problem. LOL Many ladies that I have talked to do the same thing. I guess the point in all of this is, if you are one of the lucky ones that have gotten pregnant immediately, consider yourself lucky because there are people like me, who are suffering every month with disappointment when we get a - pregnancy test. Every month, I always find myself peeing on a pregnancy test then getting that negative..I almost always drop to the floor crying when reality hits after my period comes. It is heartache. It is so frustrating and upsetting.

 I get so tired of people saying be patient that it will happen when it is supposed to..Umm no, no one should suffer like this every month. I don't want to hear any of that. I am now in my two week wait. Aunt flo is due to be here next Friday. We will see if this month will be a letdown or not. Honestly, a letdown is expected. I want those sleepless nights, breastfeeding on demand and my husband to experience pregnancy and birth. Here is to another month! We will see!

 Are you trying to conceive? How long have you been trying?


  1. We are trying. This is our 3rd cycle and I'm 3dpo. I'm charting and it's helpful, makes me feel in control. Two years ago, I was told having children would be impossible and in February found a doc who disagreed. We haven't told anyone that we are trying except my doctors. But hubby and I would be over the moon to have a child. My fingers are crossed for you!

  2. Erin, best of luck to you! We are at 17 cycles right now.

  3. Awww good luck! I can't imagine what it would be like to try and get so frustrated. I hope you and your hubs have that precious baby you want soon! :)

  4. Oh no.. Best luck to you! We aren't trying to conceive anytime soon but we are anxious and waiting until that time arrives.

    Sending best wishes to you and your hubby!
