It's Frustrating...

For about 3-4 months, we have been TTC. I have gotten all negatives so far, we even had a few times where we weren't being careful before deciding for another, and still: No baby. I am anxious for another and am beginning to get pessimistic about the entire thing. My sisters and everyone else in my family seem to get pregnant fast, but here I am--not pregnant. It is extremely frustrating, and I am beginning to become discouraged. With Jonah, he was not planned and we were trying to prevent it, since hubby wasn't ready. But, after he was born, my hubby agreed to wanting more. With Jaina, he was away with the military a lot and missed most of her baby years and childhood (Jaina is from his previous marriage). So, I believe he has realized the joy of having children. Aside from that, I just wish it was easier to conceive. So, I have decided to "Not, not try." Here's to hoping it works.

    I am sorry it has been so hard for you. I can see how it would be frustrating when it seems to take so long. Hopefully it happens for you soon!!!!

    Thank you, Amy. I know I shouldn't be venting about this but it just got to me. And then my little sis who has two kids she doesn't have custody of said she may be pregnant, and I am trying to be happy for her but I am just: Ugh!

      Everybody needs to vent sometimes mommie it's ok. With having no kids to being pregnant and gaining a toddler from my husband then having to automatically deal with a baby and a toddler was very stressful. I'm only mentioning this because I was so stressed and worried my body was out of control. Take some time to destress and get back to enjoying practicing making another with your husband. It will happen for you!!

      That is what happened to me, in a way. Jaina is my step-daughter and we got custody of her in October of last year so I had to get used to balancing a pre-teen and an infant. It was stressful. I know I am somewhat still stressed so I am trying to relax. Thank you for sharing--this is probably what is happening to me.

        You're welcome :) I tell my daughter "Stop worrying about what everyone else is doing and pay attention to what you're supposed to be doing, the world is still spinning" I know it gets disheartening when it seems like people are so easily falling into whatever it is you are striving for, but the world is still spinning. You'll have your little human soon enough

          I wish you LUCK! It's awful frustrating I know. It's emotional for sure. I am going through the same thing. I've been trying for a few months and nothing! When I wasn't trying with my daughter it happened quick.
          I did just miss my period 10 days ago.. so still testing a couple times a week and hoping for a positive. No luck yet. -sprinkles baby dust on us both!!-
