Feels like we will never succeed.

Well, I suppose I will start my Blog off with an introduction of myself. My name is Krissy. I am a 21 years old, and I live in Iowa. I married my best friend, Mark, on February 22nd 2010. I have known Mark pretty much my entire life, and we started dating pretty young. We actually start TTC (trying to conceive) in 2007 (at the young age of 17) It is hard for me to be truthful about that to a lot of people, mostly because now I realize how I'm still so young, and 17 may have been too young. I guess either way, it doesn't really matter. We are still trying. I have not had a single pregnancy. No miscarriages, nothing. I hadn't gone to the doctor about it until 2009, when I was 19. I figured the doctors may be a little more willing to help sense I was at least an adult, and months away from marriage. Well, I was wrong. I spent from 2009 - mid 2010 at this clinic... and looking back now, they had no intentions of wanting to help me. We got no where, they did some blood work and said everything looked fine, and I did my basal temps. for about 4 months, and that is about the most of them helping me. I eventually lost hope and stopped going at all. I felt like I was just NEVER going to have a kid. I finally decided to give us a break for a few months, and celebrate my 21st birthday like everybody does. Now, our much needed break is done, and I was ready to get back out there. I changed clinics and changed doctors, I now have to drive 45 mins to this clinic but it is well worth it. From the moment I walked into the door my new fertility doctor had a plan and said we WILL get this done. He said that from my basal temps that I had done prev indicates that I'm not ovulating, and that is probably the main problem. He also wanted to re-evaluate my blood work to make sure PCOS isn't a possibility. He then told me to do an HSG test and we would most likely be starting me on Clomid when I returned. I have very irregular cycles, so I had to wait and wait for my period to come so I could go do my HSG test. Finally, it arrived. I went in for my HSG test on day 10 of my cycle. Which was actually just last Friday. I still can't believe how painful it was. Regardless, the HSG test came back fine. The doctor said it was all normal. Now, I am waiting for my next appointment with my fertility doctor on April 25th ! =) I'm very excited to finally have a plan. Although after almost 4 years of trying... it sometimes feels like nothing will work, and I'm getting excited for nothing. Some days are harder then others. It's hard to understand why I am so young and can't get pregnant. They always made it sound like in high school that if you just looked at each other wrong that you would end up pregnant. I only wish it were that easy.
