Ok ladies....well just now noticed that I have cross hairs when the green was on my FF...I tested on a 5 day early test and it was BFN but yet I was more about a week and a half from AF and tested on the next to last day of cross hairs...


Should I test again even if I have very few symptoms like emotional and a little sore bbs? Or brush it off for pms ing

Hi everyone! I am relatively new here. My name is Ann Marie and I am ttc #3. I am 44 and DH is 48. We have a DS (10) and DD (3). I had no problem getting prg. with the first two (and I was 42 when I had DD), but I don't know what to expect this time, after all I'm nearly 45 now.

We are on cycle 2 and I am 10-11dpo. I've had some strange cramping in the past week, gas, and slight unsettled stoach at times, but I tested this morning and got a BFN. AF is due Tuesday, I guess I'll just wait and see if she comes, and test Wed. if she doesn't.
Good Luck to everyone!!

Welcome Ann Marie!! What beautiful children!!

What a comfort you are :) I am 42 and ttc #2. My DS is 20! This is cycle 8 or is it 9? Anyway I should not count anymore it's going to discourage me. I had a m/c last year when I was not trying.. Go figure!

I wish all the luck and lots of baby dust to you!

10-11 dpo is still early for a bfp so FX the witch doesn't show. I am 7dpo and I have 7 more days to go.

I know I said I was not going to count the days this time but hey I tried!

Welcome Ann Marie! :welcome: You have joined the right place. I see you are from CT. So am I. By any chance was that picture taken an Lyman's? I also have 2 children (both boys from previous marriage) ages 10 and 4. Now I am trying to conceive one with my new husband. We have been trying since we got married last year in May. I just turned 41, and he will be 42 in October. Neither of us have any real fertility issues.

Frannie, wouldn't that be great if we both got a BFP this month! Even if one of us did that would be fantastic!

Randapanda - I don't really know or understand the FF cross hairs. I don't use FF. Wish I could help you. I would say test every other day maybe. Your symptoms could go either way.

So I found out yesterday I have been battling a UTI for months. I have had symptoms on and off, but not the obvious signs. I saw some blood earlier this month when I wiped (of course well before O day so I knew it was not related to TTC) and that was when I called the doc. They got a negative in the office, but sent the rest to a lab and sure enough it was positive. I am wondering if by chance this has had any impact on ttc. :|

Anyway, hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! :babydustb: :babydustg:

Hi ladies. It's been a while since I posted, but I've been keeping up with your stories. I just needed a break this cycle from everything and look what it brought me!!! I enjoyed drinks, ate sushi and even tried a cigar at a music festival last weekend. No OPK's and barely temping...definitely not obsessively. DH and I only BD'd twice...two days before ovulation and one day after. In fact, the day of O, he wanted to and I was just like "nah" because I didn't feel like it. I was really taking a break. The only other thing I did differently was I started taking ubiquinol (CoQ10) a week prior to ovulation. I am sure that didn't have an effect, but who knows. Anyway, I am only 11dpo right now and I know these lines are light, but what do you think??

Thank you ladies!! As far as symptoms, I've had a skin breakout :| , breasts a bit more sore than normal after ovulation, some cramping, quite a bit of creamy CM and the smell of some food makes me feel a bit queasy. We just had our first IVF consultation four days ago. He told me that, even though my blood work was perfect, at 44 years old, I only had a 2% chance of conceiving using my own eggs and IVF. He went on to tell me that I either needed to get donor eggs or adopt. It was devastating and I cried all day. This is a much better day!! :D

Some doctors are so negative. 2%, I think that is way too low a figure. Ha, you proved him wrong.

Ann Marie - Welcome to the group! I am a firm believer in "age is nothing but a number". I have a neighbor who had her son at 44 (or maybe it was 45) and she is super healthy, etc. One thing she recommended to me which I did start doing before I got pregnant is eating lots of animals fats. Like, whole milk, ice cream, fats like that. Supposedly helped her sister too! Can't wait to hear how your testing goes.

Clementine - YAHOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! That is such excellent news!! Keep us posted and let's see more test strips.
