2 years and counting
We've now been TTC for over 2 years. I had a feeling it wouldn't happen in an instant, since it took 17 months to conceive our son. But I didn't think we would get past 2 years to be honest. Af showed up this afternoon, so now it's yet another month of TTC.

I am sorry to hear AF showed up. Do you generally POAS before your AF or do you wait to see if she rears her ugly head. I am fighting the urge to POAS today.
We are just going on our second year too. We have MFI and have gone through three IUI's already and are scheduled for another 3. We have taken November, December and now January to focus on getting healthier (quit smoking, drinking, eating healthier and working out.) we have been sticking to everything and are hopeful that we were able to conceive naturally this month. I am on 9 or 10 DPO (i didnt track this month to take a break from that before the IUI as it is tracking intensive) and I really hope we were able to conceive naturally. If not, we move into an IUI next month :( This journey has been so painful.

@MeghanBT - I always POAS before af, I just can't seem to have the patience to not test before. Maybe it's the fact I got my bfp at 11 dpo with my son a few years ago.
I can totally relate to the journey being painful.. We're not sure why it won't work for us this time. Last time we went to a fertility clinic and got some check ups after we had ttc for a year. We found out that the motility of my husbands sperms where a lower % than the reference, but instead he had triple the amount of what's normal. Got pregnant right after I got an HSG done. This time the fertility clinic won't help us, both since we already have a child and also since we doesn't seem to have a problem to get pregnant but staying pregnant. I have had several chemical pregnancies during these 2 years and have no idea why.

I’m on the exact same boat, except our daughter is 3 years old and it took us 2 years, now we are on our 2nd year again and it’s so frustrating. Every one of this 24 cycles have been nothing but torture. We have been trying to conceive naturally but at this point I’m just so tired. I’m tired of trying y’all. I’m fertile again on 2 days but I almost feel like I shouldn’t

So, I realised I put in the wrong temp on the 7th and I have corrected that. Currently 5 dpo and like the POAS addict I am, it's already itching in my fingers to test. I think I maybe take a test on Valentine's and if it's negative, which will be higly likely, I'll wait two more days before I test again. At least that's the plan.
