My husband and I have now been trying to get pregnant for quiet sometime and we recently about 2 months ago went to an infertility specialist due to my Thyroid and ovarian cyst issues. Since we have been trying to get pregnant everyone I know seems to be pregnant or having a baby. I have a 2 and a half year old son who I love more than anything and I want him to have at least one sibling. Well everyday seems to get harder to hear someone who hasn't even been trying to get pregnant is and it took them like one time to do when I have been trying since my son was a year old...today at Christmas dinner my cousin announced she is pregnant with her third baby...I couldnt help but excuse myself to restroom and cry. Its getting really hard....I just don't understand :/ I finally decided maybe I should stop trying so I did and still nothing :/ just needs a few words of encouragement or similar stories with happy endings...MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone

I understand how you feel; I know others that have had fertility issues in the past but everyone of them ended with the addition of a new baby. The holidays can be an emotional time especially when there is an emotional heartfelt life issue going on in your life....and then your cousin's news. I know you are happy for her, it's just that your desire for a baby and disappointment in not conceiving yet is very raw right now. There have been so many advancements in fertility, there is a solution for you and your husband. I know you have been trying to conceive for a long time but perhaps without addressing your medical issues. You just visited the specialist 2 months ago and that was not so very long. One of my co workers recently shared a story with me about how her little girl was conceived. She and her husband had tried everything, and while she was laying on the exam table waiting for her very last IVF (they had run out of money for any more IVF), she prayed to God to please let this one take. Today, they have a beautiful healthy 5 year old daughter. There is hope....keep the faith...there are fertility solutions for your medical conditions...medical science is so advanced...and God is so able.
