I remember when trying to conceive my first thinking that the window of opportunity was so small, it was amazing people even got pregnant at all!
I know it's frustrating to be trying with no results. :(You're right though that it is normal for things to take up to 6 months even for young, healthy couples though. Are you also charting your cycles using a basal body temperature thermometer? I used the site Fertility Friend when we were TTC my first, and found it amazingly helpful. They will also confirm your ovulation, which the predictor kits can't actually do (they tell you when you are having an LH surge, but now when you actually ovulate, or even that ovulation happens).
Good luck! Please check in and let us know if you try anything else. I hope you see that BFP soon!
I completely agree with you. We were trying for baby #2 for 2 years. I finally got on track with eating healthy and losing weight. In a month I had gotten pregnant.
i SOOOO know your frustration and have been in your exact shoes. with our first, we got pregnant the very first time/month that we stopped using protection. we didn't worry about my ovulation schedule and it just happened. well, that gave us this false sense of how things really worked! so when we started ''trying'' for number 2, we thought it would happen like it did with the first...uuuuhhh, no! :( like you, i had my annual appt, and talked to the doctor about it. they recommended trying the ovulation kits as well. so, i tried them for a couple months with no results. we tried for 8 months before it happened again for us...so it took us a long time, or, maybe it's just a ''normal'' amount of time and last time was abnormal?! but i will say this...it happened the month that we finally just didn't think about it or talk about it AT ALL...
i know it will happen for you guys again, just like it did for us. try not to stress about it (i didn't realize that i was thinking/stressing out about it as much as i was) or make it your focus, and just enjoy and appreciate your time as a family of 3. for me, that is when it all fell into place.
Congrats! I am so happy for you!
