Here you can rant with no apologies

Hello ladies! Ttc can really be a roller coaster especially for anyone who’s trying for a long time like me. I’m creating this board so anyone can come and rant as much as they want at anytime. No judgment here, only support!!
We got this ladies. Take it all out!

So my weekend is ruined and I cannot make my self feel better... My best friend who I’ve known for ever came yesterday to announce her first pregnancy. It was their FIRST month trying... I’m on YEAR TEN first response was to hug her thigh and started crying pretending it is happy tears... I feel she knows me too well though and she actually know that I was shattered.. Don’t get me wrong.I’m very happy for her and I cannot wait to meet the little one. It will be like a new family member for me but I cannot stop feeling worthless and a failure... hubby is also very upset and there’s no one that can cheer us up at this point.. ughhh it’s so unfair. We just want to have a family...l

Oh ladies I feel like I could have wrote these both myself. I am so sorry !! I feel your pain.
I hate to complain especially to you Alex I know you have been ttc for a very long time.
My first son we ttc for 12 months. Which ended in a still birth at 36 weeks. We still aren't completely sure what happened. In that time we had a lot of family loss. My rainbow baby took 13 month ttc. Thank God he is healthy and happy. So thankful for him. We have been trying to give him a sibling for 3 years now. With no luck. I am really praying this is our month.
but then again that's every month. In the last 3 years there have been so many new babies in my family. I am so grateful for them and happy to see the new life. I guess I am a little sad that my body doesn't work like their's i feel broken. I feel like they can sneeze and get pregnant.
My mom passed away a few years ago, and
I think the one that hit the hardest was my cousin that I use to be really close with just had a baby girl. He named he after my mom. Well I feel really petty being upset about that and haven't told anyone but I really wish he would have asked or something.
I guess thats my rant I feel silly and a little ashamed to be ranting about that when there is so much bad stuff going on in the world but im only human


Praying for baby number 3!

I’m 31, I’ll turn 32 in July. Been ttc for 8 years. I have a unicornuate uterus ( 2 ovaries one tube) and finally went to see an RE last May. I was diagnosed with PCOS and put on metformin and fell pregnant for the first time ever in July, then miscarried shortly after. My metformin dose was increased and put on thyroid medication and clomid to help me ovulate. I just started taking ovasitol last month and I’m currently 9dpo. I just can’t understand y the hell I haven’t gotten pregnant again since last freakin year! Like obviously I know I can get pregnant now. It kills me a little bit inside every month I don’t get pregnant. I feel so broken! I’ll be trying IUI next month and I’m nervous about throwing money down the drain as my RE says chances are only slightly higher for IUI. Just feeling a little hopeless.

Trigger warning

I need to pour my heart. I need to shout, most than anything I need someone to listen to my sorrow. They say everything happens for a reason. They say God needed another angel.. that maybe God needed him but I NEED my son too! Why did God rip my baby away from me? They say don’t question god’s doing but my heart is shattered. Why did I carry him for nine months to then 3 months later lose my baby. Why even send him to me? Why make me fall in love with my baby and rip my baby from me? Why? Why? Am I paying for something that I did? I was left with an empty car seat, and empty stroller, his bathtub where he loved his baths sits there, but the most difficult thing are my empty arms that no longer hold him. I loved my son, my SO loved our son. He was so loved and full of life. A mother grieving and a father grieving. We all have different walks of life and I’m sorry if this is a lot I just needed someone to hear me.

Long time no see ladies and reading your last posts my heart aches… I’m so sorry for you all..
I’m still here childless at almost 39 years old.. I’m 6 days late for af and already done 3 tests all bfn.. I really hope I’m not going at any early menopause since I’m NEVER late. I checked my charts from the past 3 years and I only twice was late and the longer was 4 days. I really do t know what’s happening

Hugs to you. It’s very tough to hear of someone being pregnant after trying for so long. My own “rant” here... we have been trying for about 3 years now. Last two periods have been crazy—spotting followed by super heavy flow (sorry if tmi). Two weeks apart. Talked to doctor and she suggested birth control. I am guessing that is a bad sign my fertility is very messed up. Baby dust and best wishes for everyone trying and running into problems. ????

Rosehill hopefully your doctor will figure everything out soon and you no longer have to struggle! Fingers crossed!

Today I’m feeling really low and I’ll probably see AF tomorrow. My newly pregnant friend will visit again today and tomorrow is my little nephews bday so I’ll have to be around babies and pregnant friends.. I wish ppl could understand how much effort does this need.. pfff

I had a friend bring around her baby when I was TTC as she thought being around her baby would trigger hormones lol! I did get pregnant that year but who knows. So sorry to hear your AF will come...followed by more new baby visits —as bittersweet as they are I am sure. Miam-I can’t imagine what pain you have endured. So happy you have your beautiful rainbow son now. Yes-I have to agree your cousin should have 100% asked you and your family if it was okay to name their daughter after your mom. Best wishes and baby dust to all.

I feel so helpless. I am 37 year old. Last 4 years I didn't TTC since I was doing PhD. I started TTC for second child (I have an eight year old child) from December 2020. It's May now and now I should halt TTC because covid is creating havoc in India. I can't go for TTC without vaccination. I got 1st dose on 3rd may and now I need to wait for at least 2 months to start ttc. I had conceived my first child after 1 year of TTC. I don't know how long will it take me this time..I didn't step out of home from last 1 month. I can't expect good healthcare from the already overburdened medical system...I feel so bad that I have to wait for starting ttc.. And the uncertainties surrounding probabilities of conception due to my age factor..
