Me too. Iv had 4 pregnancies. And conceived them all with the first month ttc. Sadly 2 of my children passed away. One at 9 days old and the other was stillborn. We have been trying for 1 year. Hubbys semen anaylis was better than normal and iv had a scan to check ovaries ect. My periods are every 26 days and I'm like clockwork. Wondering if my body can't handle more pregnancies. I'm 32. So still young. Oh doesn't have children and I'm always disappointed in myself because I can't give it him. It's very stressful and puts alot of pressure on you. We are looking into ivf as they do a payment plan option. Xx

Sammie, I'm so sorry to hear that! How heartbreaking, I couldn't even imagine what you went through!

Can't believe just how difficult it can all get, even the most healthy couples with nothing wrong can find it difficult! its a shame there isn't an easier way to see if you have ovulated for sure! A positive OPK, discharge and temping just isn't enough sometimes!!

I wish you all the luck and baby dust in the world xx

It's so frustrating when everything is normal but you just can't get pregnant. I almost wish there was something wrong so at least there was a reason and a plan of action. Of course, I wouldn't want anything major, but maybe a hormone was off and you just had to take some pills to fix it. I was hoping that my thyroid being underactive was the reason. Even though it wasn't that off I heard some women cant seem to get pregnant until their TSH is under 2. Mine was 3.5. I just got my blood taken today to re-check. I'm crossing my fingers it's under a 2! I cant try again until the end of this year, but I want to have my TSH at a good level so that is one less thing to worry about.

My FSH is 5.7 (U.S.)
AMH is 3.2/ml (U.S. measurement) Both show my eggs quantity and quality are that of a women between 25-30 yrs old. I just turned 34 so those numbers are great! So, something else is obviously off. I just cannot figure out what. I think later this year when I finally have good insurance (it kicks in in July) I will request a hysteroscopy. That is a sure way to see any abnormalities in the uterus that a saline ultrasound does not always pick up

Its definitely frustrating. I was told an underactive thyroid could make it harder but you can still get pregnant! You would need to tell your GP straight away as you'd need meds for sure!

Finally over the last several months they have been pretty normal. My cycles the last 3 months have been 30-31 days. I am 4-5dpo and hoping I ovulated this month. I've been blessed in the past with getting pregnant easily and I'm hoping we succeeded this cycle. I'm super impatient and my anxiety can't handle the waiting lol. Fingers crossed for us all. I really wish you could instantly know if you're pregnant haha
Hi Summer,

Its nice to hear that you have successfully had babies after being told you had Hypothyroidism, although sorry to hear about your MC that must have been pretty tough.

I was told I had Hypothyroidism last year, looks like im finally on my way to get better as my levels have dropped so much more! Knowing I have this sometimes makes me think that I will never conceive but hearing that you have has made me feel really positive
Thank you. I took that mc really hard. It was my first and hopefully my last. I wouldn't wish that pain on anyone. We were gonna take a break from trying but after a couple weeks I got a period and concieved right away. That definitely helped my healing process.

As long as I'm on my medicine I've had no issues with getting pregnant. My Dr would order a thyroid test every 6 weeks and sometimes my med would need increased. It can definitely happen for you! My tsh in December was 10.98 and last week was 1.48 so I'm pretty confident I ovulated this cycle. I'm 8dpo now. Good luck to you!
