The Desire of My Heart

I want to have a baby very badly.  I just turned 30 and I have been married for over four years now.  My husband has a 17 year old son.  I really want to have a baby girl.  We have been trying to get pregnant ever since we got married.  I went to see my doctor, sent to a gynaecologist and all he did was give me fertility drugs.  I told him that the effects were too strong for me and he basically told me that I won't likely get pregnant without them.

I am just curious as to how he came to this conclusion since I had never even had a physical examination. 

Right now I am on day 33 of my cycle, I always start to feel a little hopeful, I am not getting any younger.  I would really like to have a baby girl.  I had a dream a year ago that I was holding a baby girl, this baby was mine.  I could see her face and feel her skin, it was so real.  I believe I will get my baby girl but it is hard to wait.

Ok so day 43 my period comes.. oh well off to the fertility clinic tomorrow.

I am actually Canadian as well. I am being sent to a fertility clinic. I have had really good reports about it. A friend of mine was told that it would be very unlikely to get pregnant because of the combination of things they had wrong. She is now expecting her baby so I have not lost hope, I just want to see someone who will actually look into things rather than just hand out pills.<br />
34 days and I hope to keep counting.

I'm in the same boat as you I'm 41 and my husband is 47 we have been trying for 11 years to have our second child. Our daughter is 15 years old. I have 2 daughters a 20 & 18 1/2 year old from a previous marriage plus I have a 25 year old step-daughter. It breaks my heart I cannot get pregnant and it seems like my husband no longer wants to try even though he says he does. :(

I am going to see my doctor this morning and I am going to ask her if I can be sent to someone else. However I am hoping I am actually pregnant and don't need to go ahead with it. <br />
The gynaecologist was saying "if" I only ovulate some months then I will not likely get pregnant. He had alot of IF's in his conversation.<br />
My thoughts are that if there is something wrong physically then the fertility drugs won't do me any good any way. But I suppose that I would need to see a gynaecologist that would rule things out first.
