New here, 35 and TTC

Postby moonshyne777 » Fri May 06, 2011 8:30 am


I posted once here before but wanted to get some advice. I am 35 years old and have two children, a 2 and 3 year old. I spent my 20's with the "unexplained infertility" label and then in my early 30's God finally answered my prayers and I had two back to back pregnancies. (Naturally)

I would love one more child and I'm wondering what this round of TTC will bring. I used Preseed when ttc my first and got pregnant the first cycle I used it so I'm thinking about ordering some. What else would you suggest I try to enhance my chances of conception? I don't know what to expect. I could either spend months trying with no results like in my 20's or be surprised a few months in. It could really go either way so I'm not getting my hopes up too much. If God wants me to have another I will and if not then I can be grateful for the two children I have. That's the attitude I'm going in with because the heartbreak TTC has caused me in the past was too much. So if it happens great and if not, well I guess it's not meant to be.

That being said I want to do everything I can to maximize the chances of pregnancy. Any suggestions?

Hi there,

I used the Clearblue Easy monitor and Preseed and loved them both. The first month we tried the Preseed is when I got my bfp with my daughter so I highly recommend that stuff. I loved using the monitor too, I'd get ridiculously excited testing, lol.

Babydust to you too! We are also just starting ttc again. Btw, how old are your other kids? I have a 2 and 3 year old who seem eager at the idea of having a baby brother or sister. I just asked my daughter what she thought of having a new baby brother or sister and she told me as long as it's a sister it's ok lol. Hmm, wonder if she'll expect me to return it if it's a boy lol.
