Unhappy ttc for baby #2


i am 32 and have been ttc for 16 months. i went to my gyn and his suggestion is to try again for another 2 months. he gave me folic acid to start taking. If i have not gotten pregnant after the two months has passed he will start doing testing . Has anyone else gone through this , should i get a second opionion ?????

I strongly suggest read the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility and chart your next two cycles. This can help your dr know when to run certain time sensitive tests along with give you both a good view of your cycle.
The book is full of wonderful info that can be very helpful.

Re: ttc for baby #2

Hi, my partner and i have been trying to conceive for 19 months now but still nothing :-( we have both had tests and been told neither of us have any problems. I am 36 and my partner is 35 so i think a lot of it might be down to age! I would definately recommend having further tests because if something is wrong then at least you will know and can focus on putting it right. I'm glad in a way we got the all clear but it still doesn't help with the disapointment we get each month. Good Luck

Re: ttc for baby #2

Scarlet, to give you a bit of hope, my aunt had her first child who would carry to full term (she'd miscarried and was told she could never carry a child to full term) when she was in her mid 40's. She tried for years and years and when she found out she was pregnant, she'd come to terms that she'd never have her own child, then it happened!!! Don't lose hope yet Especially if the doc has said your both healthy, I think it's just a matter of time. Have you been charting, using opk's, timing and all? It is hard and I'm not the most patient person either with all this but all we can do is try our best and hope for the best! Good luck scarlet!!
