Is anyone else frustrated with trying to get pregnant and it feels like it's not happening fast enough? How do you deal with the disappointment and the stress? My husband and I have for about 6 months and I feel like I'm going crazy! I would love to talk to anyone that is currently trying as well.

Heh, another thread I can't really relate to, but still reply to (probably because the thread starter is a dear friend of mine). Anyways, I wish you well in getting pregnant. I've told other female members in this endeavor that vitamins C, D and E can help on the health side, along with the B complex (paying a lot of attention to thiamine, riboflavin and folic acid). Make sure to get the recommended daily value of iron, copper, magnesium and zinc (but be careful and do not overdose). For the husband, vitamins A, C and E(especially E) are the key. Emotionally, try to reduce the stress and calm a bit Flight, both you and your husband. I know its hard for me to say, but I do believe some positivity and relaxation may help your situation here. As always, its good to keep advise from a doctor, conception/reproduction specialist.

Hey everyone, i saw the thread and had to put my 2 cents in. sorry :) Anyway, my husband and i tried for almost 4 years after i had a tubal reversal, i used Ovulex, and took folic acid. Then after all that, i told my hubby, lets just forget it and move on ya know? Well, lo and behold, later that month we concieved. My father seems to think it was because we weren't trying so hard and had gotten back to just enjoying eachother as a couple. Hope my rambling helped.

Not stressing over it has been really hard for me. I know I shouldn't stress, but I just can't help it! Grrrrr. I'm trying to relax and not make it so technical, you know? Thanks for all the support!

I can really relate to this discussion. I was told for 10 years that I couldn't have children, but on June 6th of 2006 my hubby and I had a beautiful baby girl. I then went on the depo shot after having her so I wouldn't get pregnant again right away. My last shot was in May and my hubby and I have been trying since then to have another one. I have always been told that the times your not trying or stressing over it is when it just happens. I wish you the best of luck! PurpleTeddyBear.

We've been trying off and on for almost a year and a half now. I know our problem is stress! I get so upset and frustrated and we're trying to get our house finished and my job is driving me crazy and gah! Ha ha. Everyone has told me the same thing- Stop Stresing and it will happen. Thank you so much for your support!

I'm still not pregnant and it's really starting to get to me. I just want it so badly and it seems like everyone around me either already has children, or they didn't or don't struggle to get pregnant. My doctor told me my husband and I are fine fertility wise, but she told me I need to stop stressing so much. I can't help it! I know fertile times and I feel like I'm becoming obsessed, you know? Good luck to you too and thanks for responding.

I know how you feel, I'm in the same position myself. I think you should relax and enjoy and it will come. This is what I'm trying to do too but the hard thing is to make your husband do the same. Men sometimes become more frustrated than women and that spoils the fun of the whole thing! Another issue is that you should not tell anyone from your family or friends that you're trying to have a baby because they will start asking you this and that and will frustrate you more. I made the mistake to tell my mother that we're not taking any precautions and if a baby comes we'll keep it, and now I have to answer to all her questions and explain why I'm not pregnant yet etc... Just relax...

I actually made the same mistake and told my family too. Now all I hear is..."Are you pregnant yet"? I try to relax but it is so hard, ya know? I hate when people tell you it will happen when it's meant to. I want it to happen now!:) LOL...I know my family means well. My husband and I have been married almost 4 years and we have been talking about it for a while and I'm on all kinds of websites all the time, but all that technical stuff just seems to make it that much more complicated!Thanks for the encouragment...I needed it. Keep in touch about your progress.

Hello Flight. My brother-and-sister-in-law got married five years ago. His wife got pregnant before they got married, but they decided to take an abortion. Later after three years of marriage, they got very worried without having the chance to get pregnant. Then they went to see doctors in big hospitals. Finally his wife got pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy last year. So I think that you need to get relaxed without worrying too much. A good mood is of vital importance. By the way, it is three years old of this discussion. I am wondering how my Flight is getting on? Good luck to you, friend.
