Sorry to hear that, Rachel. We're hoping to conceive in February as well.

Period came. It was a week later than expected which was frustrating, but at least I can move on to the next cycle now. Hoping to conceive in February, but won't know until mid March.

I hear so many women my near my age (35) struggle with these well meaning "comments" but it's shocking every time I hear it! As far as I can tell, everyone knows someone that had trouble conceiving so who are these people that think it's ok to ask about when the next kid is coming? All my best wishes to you all and my sincere hope that the people "wise up" on this topc!

Sorry Rachel and Abby for the comments! I can imagine that would be frustrating!

I'm out as well.

I'm sure that is super frustrating! It seems that outside people are never happy with what is in YOUR life.

I'm sorry to hear you are having such a hard time, too, Rachel! Comments like, "I think so-and-so needs a sibling!" are really starting to get to me! And my DD only just turned one!!

MRSDROP11, I know how you feel. My DD is almost 3 and people keep asking when we are going to have another one. We've been trying for over a year. It is frustrating enough without the constant reminders that I'm not pregnant.

We are now in our 14th cycle TTC. This is especially difficult for me since DD only took 3 cycles to conceive. To make matters worse my periods are becoming somewhat erratic making it more difficult to know when to expect it and it seems everyone I know is getting pregnant.

I'm right there with you. 14DPO and another blazing BFN this morning. Expecting AF today or tomorrow at the latest. I'd been doing a good job this time around managing expectations but I really let myself get my hopes up this cycle. Today is my husband's birthday and I really wanted to be able to tell him we're pregnant!

I've got a doctor's appointment set up in two weeks just to see what she would recommend for us. I have never been to a specialist, but we're already at 6 months TTC#2 and not getting any younger. We always said we'd like to have 3-4 kids but who knows what life holds at this point.

I've also started to get a lot of people saying "time for number two". While that doesn't sting nearly as bad as it did when we desperately wanted to be parents the first time around, it still gets to me. I know people mean well but I don't think they realize how much pain they cause when couples are privately struggling or even dealing with loss. I try so hard to be sensitive with what I say to others!

How is everyone?

12DPO here and 2BFN's (yesterday and the day before). I'm not very hopeful and feeling pretty down at the moment. Yesterday was my birthday (officially 35 now) and I did not feel like celebrating AT ALL. I'm actually quite nervous this month. If I'm not pregnant we'll start our first IUI cycle in a few days. I have no idea what to expect. I'll be on clomid and I'm not looking forward to the mood swings...

Carissa, good luck getting ready for TTC!

Sadly, I am not a February Hopeful. After my annual physical, I found out I need to be off my medication for three months to get it out of my system before it's safe to TTC. Discouraging, I am in my mid-thirties and not in the mood to wait for my second kid!

On a positive note, this gives me three months of "Getting Fit Before Baby" so I have no excuse to reach that healthy BMI!

I'm in! 6th cycle TTC #2. AF is due February 2nd (my DH's birthday). Hoping for a great birthday present for him, but knowing it took a LONG time to conceive my daughter. Currently starting the TWW and trying to be patiently optimistic.

I'm in. 8th cycle TTC #1.

After last week's visit to the OB/GYN where I got a PAP, ultrasound, and blood test I am feeling apprehensively positive. My one ovary looks good and so does my uterus. The doc just said to work on the weight loss and if in 3-4 more cycles we don't conceive then we need to do a test to look at the patency of my fallopian tube. fun stuff. Like I said - apprehensively positive....
