TTC Tuesday: Two Years

Two years ago, we decided to officially start trying to conceive a child. March 2009 was the first month that I started keeping track of my BBT, thinking that it would be super easy to make sure we did the deed at just the right time and BOOM, I would be pregnant. And if we were one of the lucky ones that happened to get pregnant the first time trying, we would have a 15-16 month old right now. But we don't. When you have been trying for something for 2 years and each month is a failure, it can be hard to stay positive. I have earned the tears I have cried. I deserve to be sad. But this is one of those moments that I try to focus on what I do have and what I can do. I try to stay positive and know that when it is our turn, we will be overjoyed and happy and ecstatic.

I'm so sorry for your struggle.

I was diagnosed with PCOS a few years back so I've been extra worried about how hard it will be to conceive. I got off the pill in January and Aunt Flo hasn't arrived yet (typical for me since I've never been regular). It makes knowing what my body is doing extra difficult!

I've been charting my BBT for a week or so and it has sorta been all over the place. I guess only time will tell...

I hope your luck turns around soon! Hugs!!

I hope that it happens for you soon! We're at almost a year and it feels like it's an impossible dream. You seem to be doing such a good job focusing on the positive and hopefully things will happen soon! Thanks for being so open about your struggle.

I'm so sorry y'all are still fighting the IF battle. I was recently thinking the same thing but just about a year behind y'all. Hope both of our IF journeys are over soon!
