Just Waiting And Hoping...and Waiting..

My husband and I have been married for over 6 years now and still have yet to have a family of our own. I feel very alone in my struggles although I know others out there have experienced the same feelings I have. I've been off birth control for 4 years now but nothing. This past year I started really trying, I've done temperature monitoring, fertility strips and we've hit my ovulation time perfectly for month and still nothing. We have a wonderful life, we live in Germany and do a fair amount of traveling, but there's always that empty feeling. In our lives we've been successful - but this is the one area in my life I feel like an utter failure. It's so painful as I'm sure you all understand. We were the first married in our group and wanted kids - but all our friends and family had their "surprise" babies while we were trying for one on purpose. I'm not sure how much longer I can contain my personal hurt during baby showers. Next month, we are eligible to start the fertility treatments and meet for our consultation. Wish us luck please!!!

Sending baby dust your way! My hubby and I are also trying and trust me, I truly know the disappointment month after month when there's no BFP (Big Fat Positive)....I am in my last 2 months of naturally trying and then the doc wants us to move to the next step...Keep us posted :)
