I just want to get pregnant already!

Let me preface this by saying I'm normally very calm about TTC. I'm not constantly stressing about it, I don't want to further hurt my chances by stressing myself. But every now and then I just stop and kinda go !
We're on our 12th cycle of charting since the miscarriage. My hormone testing came back normal. The dr. doesn't want to do any other tests right now. We've been pg 3 times, with 2 losses, so he's not concerned about us getting pg, more concerned about staying pg when we do get there. But how long must I wait?? I wanted a 3-4 yr between ds and the next baby and now it's gonna be 5+ years. I know ds will love his sibling and be a great big brother, but I feel like there's too much age difference for them to actually be playmates. Anyways, some of my crazy thoughts when I start feeling aggravated with the constant failure! ...

I just want a baby already! If I hadn't miscarried last year, my lo would be 3 weeks old right now.

I just want to make and buy diapers and do all the fun stuff that goes along with being pg.

I want to have morning sickness!

I want to have that crazy obsession with cinnamon that I had with ds.

I want to hurry up and get pg so I'm not the size of a bus in the middle of summer!

I want my lonely ds to have the sibling he keeps asking for!

I had secondary infertility after #1 and it sucked. I had 5 losses before I got DS2. I hope you get your sicky bean fast and tons of hugs. We TTCed for 3 years and I hated the long wait.

Thanks mama. I would have gone nuts waiting 3 years! I'm hoping our timing is just off. I really want it to happen this cycle, otherwise it's gonna be deathly hot come delivery time!

Oh yes - I had an August baby and WOW, was that different weatherwise than my May babies. My last was April and I like spring babies. I was happy when July and Aug were peak months for conception for me. I got preggo with my last on the 1st peak month. Once I had DS2 the babies after came much easier...LOL!

Re: I just want to get pregnant already!

Hugs, mama! I can only imagine what you've been through or how you're feeling.
Have you heard of NaProTechnology? They consider 6 months of ttc using fertility focused intercourse (which you've probably been doing with our charting) as an infertility issue. Just a thought if you want to start looking for answers and aren't happy with your doctor's wait and see approach. NaPro does a great job of finding the underlying problem and treating it.
I hope you find your answers and get your sticky bean soon!

I can sympathize... I'm tired of hitting year marks. :-/

We're still trying. If we don't get it this month we'll be heading back to the dr to see about testing. He told us to come back in 6 months when we went in April. I hated to wait a full year, especially since I've been charting/temping the whole time.
