A year ago I started posting in a group full of women, most of them trying, a few pregnant, and even fewer new moms.
A year later, I still post, but not fulltime active in the group. They are now mostly moms, a few still pregnant, and even fewer trying.
Oh how 12 months makes a difference.
Six months ago I got sick of being the fewer still trying so I made a group of just us ttc'er who have been trying forever. It's a small group but it's nice to know these women from a year ago. I just hope by next March one of us gets pregnant. It's been six months so far and none of us has received our BFP yet. I read a few months ago that 82% of women who didn't conceive in their first year, will in their second. I have been rooting for us to all get our BFPs in the same month.
The only downer side to a group like this, is they are better off finiancally than we are or will ever be for the forseeable future. So while they are off to IUIs, IVF, and adoption or whatever the choose in these upcoming months, I will still be here, alone, in the dark, trying, and trying, and trying, and trying.
I hope by next summer we will either be parents, pregnant, or at least have some money to start IUIs or something...The amounts are just overwhelming to think about out of pocket right now...but maybe it will make sense then.
