I'm 30. Hubby and I married April 2, 2005. Found out we were pregnant last Feb. and miscarried in March. I was 8 weeks along and STILL ttc again. It is taking so long but I know it will happen!
I have one adopted girl (10) and one step-son (5).
Elle, thank you for making this spot for us in our 30's. Its nice to relate to people in our age bracket.
Good luck to everyone and lots of baby dust!!

Hi Elle,
All the best for your anniversary!

I'm 34, dh is 33 and we're ttc #2. Our daughter just turned 4 last week. We've been ttc since May last year and I'm just starting the first cycle with a Clearblue Fertility Monitor. So far this time around we've tried temping, OPK's, saliva monitor and preseed but I think I've been too stressed about it all. I took a November and December break and feel much better about the whole journey.

I'm also looking for a new cycle buddy as my previous one just happily announced her own pg.

Best of luck to all :luck:

Hello everyone. I'm Kari and I'm 31.

I began my ttc journey when I was 16. I got pg and when I was 14 weeks that pg ended in miscarriage. I met my first dh in 97 and in March of 98 we welcomed baby Zach.

When Zach was 9 months and only 1 ppaf for me I discovered I was pg again. In September of 99 we welcomed baby Mathew.

In August 02 my dh and I mutually agreed our marriage was over and we went seperate ways. In November 03 I met my current dh. We moved in together in March 03 and by December 03 we welcomed baby Josh.

We are now ttc our 2nd child together but 4th child respectively. DH doesn't care what we have but I am hoping and praying for a baby girl.

In fact DH brought a box of stuff home from work that they were going to get rid of and not knowing that there was a pink baby frame, a baby girls first christmas ornament, a pink bunny baby rattle and a ceramic "it's a girl" frame......maybe it's a sign :D

Happy anniversary Elle and thank you for this site!

hello! I'm 30 and my DH, who is 26, and I got married in March, 2005. We had a MC in Aug., one in Nov., and possibly one last week. We found out two days ago that I have an underactive Thyroid and my Dr. is going to regulate it. He has given me the go ahead and start trying. So, this will be our first official month TTC#1. It looks right now like my DH will be out of town on business when I O, so it may be next month for us... hopefully. My prayers are with you all!

Hi all! Happy Anniversary Elle!

I'm 30, DH is 31, and we've been ttc#1 for a year. I have not ovulated at all since getting off b/c. I've been diagnosed with a prolactinoma (a growth on the pituitary gland) as well as PCOS. This is my second cycle with Clomid, and the RE put me on Metformin also this time. Hoping I O in the next day or two!

I just turned 30 last month. DH (Heath) is 33. He has two children from his first marriage, ages 6 and 3. I had one miscarriage with my first dh, and two with Heath. We are still working on our first child together. Funny how I thought I would be done having children by now, but I guess God had other plans for me.
