Any else feel embarassed about taking longer to fall pregnant?
I wanted to see if anyone else feels like me. It took us 8 cycles to conceive our LO, which at the time felt like forever-but i am more than aware that 1) that is statistically 'normal', and 2) we conceived alot quicker than some.
However,when talking to my ante natal group friend i discovered that my 8 months was deemed a long time by them! We have been NTNP since he was born 17 months ago and TTC for the past 3, with no success. Whilst i am not starting to panic-i am dreading my friends asking me when i may have number 2.At this point, one of the group was due with her second last week and the others are thinking about TTC now. I am not telling most of them that we are TTC cos i know they may suggest that after not using contraception for 17 months i 'should' be pregnant by now.Any else relate?
ttc is based on timing you would i have to have sex in the window of ovulation to get pregnant. So when it comes to ntnp you wont be tracking ovulation so you dont know when or if ovulation happens. Try not to worry about the time you were ntnp as it could just been down to timing and luck. Try and keep your chin up hun it will happen
I know it's not easy but if you can, tune out the thoughts of others the best that you can. There is no "normal" with TTC, really. Some women take longer than others to regulate, some do not. And it's unfair of anyone to comment on "how long" it takes anyone to conceive, IMO.
Just keep your chin up, lovely. I'm not TTC yet, and we don't have a LO yet, but I know women who took anywhere from 1 month to over a year to conceive. Since the window of opportunity is so slight, it's not always as 'easy' as people might assume, you know?
weve been ttc2 for 12mth/ 13th cycle now and proper ttc aswell, i just think its pot luck, if we fell preg on our fertile window we wud be preg now just have to wait i guess , latley ive had my sil/bro telling me there expecting in nov and i do feel embarassed as they know how long weve been ttc ..... the tried for 2wk xx
I feel the same way. My family is very fertile and they get pregnant pretty much as soon as they want to. I'm afraid to talk to any of my sisters about it. I know I havent been trying very long but I feel like with the way it happens for everyone else in my family it should have happened for me already.
I know exactly how you feel. I fell pregnant with all 3 of my girls by "accident" one of which was conceived on the pull out method and now that we are trying (hoping for a boy but will love a healthy baby really) it isn't happening. My sister-in-laws were all trying as well and fell pregnant right away and it has taken me 6 months so far. It is so embarrassing and frustrating.
Yes, I really used to have an easy time getting pregnant. When I got pregnant with MC1 in October, I never would have guessed it would end in MC. Once that happened, I figured we'd be able to get pregnant right away. I can't believe I'm here this many months later and still TTC. I think my embarrassment is more self-imposed than anything from outside pressures. But it's still there.
I feel like there is something wrong with me. I feel like with each passing year it becomes more obvious to the world around me that I am not "normal" because I don't have children yet.
DH and I have been trying for 9 years. Took breaks for financial reasons and last year becasue of miscarriage. Starting meds to prepare to start again with donor IUI. Praying we get everything right this time.
