Default ttc whine/vent

I just realized we will have been ttc'ing #3 for almost an entire year now. I took a couple months off, but really I was still "trying" even though we weren't doing IF treatments. I'm so happy for everyone around me who is pg but they're getting ready to have, or have had their babies already. It's so depressing.

I had it. Right there--- I thought it was going to finally be time to turn in my infertility badge and move on with my life. But no, I had a miscarriage and am right back to "start" now.

I just feel like quitting. I can't believe our time is running out so fast. I only have 9 months till our "predetermined cut off" for my age (and dh is a few years older than I am). I thought we'd be back to IUIs again already. I normally don't "quit" at anything... but I feel like it's never going to happen.

Then, I think about the wonderful kids I do have and feel guilty for feeling depressed. I know some people don't get to birth children at all and I probably shouldn't be complaining.

I think you have every right to complain. You're allowed to after all you've been through! I truly hope your miracle will come in 2009. I think you're an amazing and strong woman and you deserve to have another child. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I want to add to my post from the other day...I don't want it to sound like you shouldn't complain. You do every right to complain. I just wanted to offer a littler support. You seem like such a wonderful, confident woman. I can only imagine how hard it would be to set a "cut off date." That takes alot of strength. I would love to be more like you. And it's not whining
 
Venting helps, so keep venting away! And you have alot of women praying for you! (Sorry if I'm being sappy...)
