Frustrated and wondering if something is wrong..

I have a 20 month old-whom I conceived quickly, had an easy pregnancy, aand delivery. We started trying again when she was about a year and cconceived again quickly. I lost the baby early on. We lost our dog right when I found out and I truly feel it played a part in it. My doctor says no, but how can it not?

We started trying 4 months ago and no luck. I am so frustrated and just don't know what is going on. I am taking prenatal, know when I am ovulating, etc..I feel like I'm doing everything right but nothing is happening. My doctor says to wait two more months before calling back-I will be 35 next summer and would like to have 2 more.

Just need to vent...

Sorry for your loss. The death of a family member (and I take it that the dog was no less than that) is obviously a traumatic event and that kind of stress is known to be very bad for you during the first trimester.
Four months is not a very long time. Stay positive, do your math and hope for the best!
