Unfortunately, for some of us TTC can add some extra stress. Have had my share of heartache during that time (unexplained fertility, some chemical pregnancies and a MC). I very much understand the feeling of frustration and seemingly fighting a loosing battle. Sometimes, I do not know where I took the strength to keep going, but I did. Sending you hugs and courage to keep going. .....and boooh to that nasty Clomid. I was put on Femara which I tolerated better.

I'm so sorry you're facing difficulties TTC, after loss, it's like insult to injury. It took us a full year to conceive our 2nd after our daughter was born and passed. And dealt with unexplained infertility, went through all the clomid rounds, up to the 150mg and oy... the side effects. I called it cloMOODy. Total basket case on it, and on top of the pain of struggling to conceive, well I was a hot mess! :)

In retrospect though, I am so thankful I had that entire year to be a mommy to my daughter, and to cultivate her memory and place in our family. It didn't make the journey to TTC her siblings any easier, but I am now thankful for the time.

I also found the book Taking Control of your Fertility very helpful, and made me feel that I was doing everything I could to increase my chances of getting pregnant- which seriously can be like a 2nd job!
