    @Alzora - (((hugs))) So sorry to hear that. :-(

    @Daisychain - That is pretty scary. It's something I rarely hear about so I've never thought about the statistics.

    I just caught up on the 10 pages of activity since I went away on the weekend. No long response today, but I am thinking of each of you. Sorry to hear the bad news alzora and nowakasia. Welcome newbies! Good luck to those of you in your two week wait. Here's hoping we can get some good news this month, we certainly need some!

    This will be our first month actively trying, I think I'll be in my fertile phase around the 18th to 22nd so we will see how it goes!

    @Alzora... I understand your post about wishing our lives away all too well!

    Trying for twelve full cycles, with nothing to "show" for it so to speak, is very hard. Add onto that people who try for one and get pregnant, or aren't trying at all and get pregnant, it's impossibly hard.

    As someone who's been trying for two full years now, the best advice I could give about that feeling is to not let TTC control your life. It should be a part of your life, without a doubt, and it'll probably be a big part of it-- but don't let it stop you from planning for the future and making trips! Obviously, if you were to get pregnant, things would change, but for the most part plans are easy to change. You can always get refunds, or sell tickets to other people, or do it anyway but do it a little differently.

    Regarding the baby-making activities, obviously you'll want to "target" your fertile window. Every other day is supposedly ideal, since sperm needs some time to regenerate, but if it ends up being three days, keep in mind that sperm can last a long time inside of your body Seriously, the average is something like three to five days!!! So with regards to your fertility, as long as you're regularly active within the general time frame of ovulation, you should be set! If it doesn't happen one night, don't sweat it, because there's always a tomorrow to try.

    I know that the two-week wait seems more like two years, and that this is hard to do, but try not to focus on signs of pregnancy. Try to find something to occupy your time, something that you love to do. If your period is a day late, or if you start having strong symptoms, you can use a pregnancy test and find out.

    I guess the gist of what I'm trying to say is that you should do what you want to do, and not let TTC stop you from anything. Do the best you can, with things that are in your control (such as taking prenatal vitamins, or timing intercourse, or eliminating coffee and ibuprofen), and don't be too hard on yourself. Realize that a lot of it is out of your control, ultimately speaking, and that by doing all that you can do to get pregnant is quite literally all that you can do on the matter <3

    Oh, @Alzora... before I forget... there's more to fertility treatments than IVF!!!

    If you decide to find a fertility specialist, you should look into AI (artificial insemination, aka "turkey basting" the baby into you ). Unlike IVF, it is much more likely to be covered under health insurance, and even if it's not the procedure is much less expensive!

    I also wanted to tell you that I'm sorry that it didn't work out this cycle. It can be so heartbreaking to wake up to that kind of news I'll keep you in my prayers, and keep my fingers crossed for next month! <3
