    MY NAME IS ADRIENNE, I AM 32, MY DH AND I HAVE BEEN TRYING TTC SINCE 2006. I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH PCOS IN 2008. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR SOME WHERE TO BELONG OR SHOULD I SAY WHERE SOMEONE CAN RELATE TO WHAT I AM FEELING.
    I COME FROM A SOMEWHAT FERTILE FAMILY AND I AM THE FIRST TO HAVE "ISSUES" WITH CONCEIVING.
    I HAVE TO SAY THIS IS NOTHING LESS THEN AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER.

    Hi! I am 33 and we have been TTC since 2009. I can certainly relate to how you are feeling. It really is such an isolating feeling isn't it? A friend of mine suggested that I start a journal, which I keep on my computer. I like it because I get to say all the things I am thinking without offending anyone. It is perfectly ok to be mad, sad or even apathetic at times. Just try to allow yourself to feel what you are feeling instead of bottling them up.

    It sounds like you have a lot of kids in your family, (I am an aunt to 8!). Every time someone gets pregnant, I try to feel encouraged that it can happen for me too. Otherwise, I think we just start to feel left out. I wish you the best!

    Hello...:) It is such a truly isolating feeling.Sometimes I feel like I'm in a bubble.
    I also had been journaling for awhile, but just recently took a break. I have a problem with bottling everything up and let them fester. One of the things I am trying to overcome.
    Its really comforting to hear that I'm not the only one who has these feelings. I feel a little less crazy, ha ha.
    I'm also an aunt of 8. My eldest niece just recently got engaged and found out she is expecting. She doesn't want to tell me.... ugh. But all I can do is be supportive and happy for her. It's an awful feeling when your loved ones are afraid to share their good news, because they don't want to hurt you.
    thank you for your encouragement and your words of comfort. I also wish you nothing but the best and much more!

    My husband and I have been TTC for 2 1/2 years. We're scheduling an IUI for next month, so I can totally identify with the roller coaster part. My doctor put me on Metformin to lower my resting insulin.

    I had 4 benign uterine polyps removed about a month ago and my doctor is waiting until I've healed from my surgery to start any medication and/or procedures.

    I turn 35 tomorrow, which means the cost of any procedures will go up for me. Even though my husband and I are stressed out from all this, we're getting excited about the upcoming procedure.

    Hey
    My friend was diagnosed with PCOS around the same time as you and has just found out this week that she is pregnant! so just keep trying! She only had managed to have sex once the last time she was ovulating, which was from behind, a fellow nurses tip! And after two years it worked! mirracles happen..... hopefully it will happen for me too this year too! x x x

    Oh wow, roller coaster def. describes it!! We have been ttc since April of last year. Just recently came into some problems.. Hadn't had my period since December. I just got it again last week because I had to take a pill to jump start it. The dr. says since I took depo for so long my body is having problems ovulating... so now it's even more stressful. It's not just the whole months coming and going.. now there is even more to worry about.
