Looks like a lot of new members to this discussion group. My name is Jennifer, and I am also looking for a support group for secondary infertility. There are some local groups where I live, but they are for women who have not yet had a baby, so I don't really fit in. Sometimes I feel guilty, because I have a child already and feel like I'm not "allowed" to feel the pain of infertility. I have felt it for almost 10 total years of trying to have a baby. I was lucky once...but I still have a family to complete. I have wanted so desperately for my son to have a brother or a sister. I want a house full of grandchildren one day! I am starting to get discouraged. For years, I have monitored everything I eat and drink. I'm worried about what excercise I do or don't do, and almost TOO in tune with my body. I feel EVERYTHING. It does cause anxiety, which then I think causes me to contiue to be infertile. I find it very hard to just forget about it - because I'm afraid I'll forget my vitamins, or miss ovulation if I don't do my OPK. I want to be a carefree person..but feel chained to infertility!
