***ROLL CALL TTC in your 30s***

Postby rachel17 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 12:40 pm

Hey there! Please introduce yourself and tell your story.

I am Rachel (36 years old) and have been TTC since 2005. The husband (37 years old) and I have been married for 15 years and have unexplained fertility and it is sooo frustrating :x . If I had some reason to WHY I haven't been able to conceive it would make it less frustrating (at least to me). I have had an HSG and his swimmers are SUPER fine. We had our 1st IUI in February 2016 and just had the 2nd IUI December 23rd and I am currently in the TWW window. We have adopted a precious little girl that is now 7 and wants a brother or sister (mainly a sister :rofl: ) sooo bad. BTW we are from Tx.

What is your story?? I would LOVE to "meet" you.

Hi Rachael!

My name is Gina. I’m a mom to a little boy who will be 2 soon. I’m 35, almost 36. I had a miscarriage in 2015 before getting a BFP with my son. My husband and I have just started trying again this month for baby #2....I’m not too optimistic about this month, but only time will tell! I hope you and your husband are able to conceive...what a hard road you have been on!

Hi!! Nice to "meet" you!
My name is Kara and I am 34 years old (husband is 35). We got married in July 2016 and moved from NY to SC a couple of months after. We just bought our first home in November 2017....and now we decided it's time to try to start our family :-)

Hi, my name is kelly, I’m 33 and have started IUI process with my partner Katie. I have no children as yet and this is our first try. Katie can do the same process but needs an operation to unblock her tubes so I went first. We’ve been together two years and we marry next year in the summer of 2019 and I can not wait, just hoping I have my own bundle of joy to celebrate that with us. Good luck and baby dust to all :)

Hello I'm Chloe and I'm 35. My husband and I have been ttc for 1st baby for 4 cycles. We started right after we got married in Sept 2017. I have found the tww really difficult already. I hope joining this forum will help make it more manageable. I am already charting temperature but for this 5th cycle I will check my cm and use preseed. I hope we get a better outcome! I am very worried about dealing with infertility. I am worried i waited too long but that's just life since I only met my husband in my thirties :-)

Hello women. I’m Louise and I’m 33. First month ttc with my DP who is 30. Halfway through the tww and it feels like an eternity!! Really want to hold out testing until after AF is due but not sure I’ll be able to resist. What CD is everyone on?

Hello everyone! I'm on CD11 and I've had my temperature spike between CD13 and CD15 in previous cycles so not yet in the tww. Good luck to all! Any tips on how to make the tww go faster?

Hey Chloe! Every morning I check the date and can’t believe it’s only one more day dpo!! I am trying to keep busy, the weekend I made a few plans so it went a bit quicker but the work days are draagggging. Enjoy your BD days!
7dpo today and have woken up tired and hungry but that’s not totally unusual.

I'm Andrea, I'm 31 and this is our third month TTC. I decided to do a Whole 30 this month and have been amazed at how much it changed my BBT chart. Looking at the other months, I knew we didn't have a snowball's chance in Hades. This month my chart is damn near perfect (although still low overall...getting tested for hypothyroidism.) Currently 11 days DPO.

I can take a pregnancy test on Saturday. I am *crawling up the WALLS* with anticipation. Today was a 'constantly checking my own nipples to see if they're any darker' kind of day. Yesterday was a 'is my motion sickness morning sickness?' kind of day. The day before that was 'do you smell that? Is my sense of smell super weird right now?' day. I wonder what insane symptom my brain will latch onto tomorrow.

Extra bummer: I have to go out of town this weekend for a training seminar. I'm still planning on taking the test on Saturday morning (the training involves some Chinese medicine activities that could impact a pregnancy -- better to know and avoid), but my partner won't be there with me.

Thank you Louise! I know how you feel though, the waiting is agonizing. But my cycle is long anyway, so I know I'll get a BFN if I test any earlier that 14 DPO. Had some light pink spotting today (12 days dpo). Crossing my fingers for IB, but we'll see. ::ack:: (So I guess that's my symptom-chasing today!)

Thinking good thoughts and baby dust for you!

Fingers crossed for you Kara!! Let us know how you get on tomorrow.

Just started feeling some funny twinges again but could be in my head / nerves of constantly thinking about it.
