Sigh. 4 DPO. Having cramps but I always do. I always have cramps and it always gets my hopes up. So long to wait. I asked God for twins. I want another baby.

Is anyone still out there? This website is so confusing to me. I'm still trying, now 42, no BFP in 7 months of trying and getting sad.

Mercy-I am still here. This is my last month TTC as I am now 40 and just can't keep my life in limbo any longer waiting to see if we are blessed with another child. I had my 5th IUI on Friday.

I was on here a lot 4.5 years ago when TTC my now 3.5 year old. Been lurking because I'm not REALLY ttc. I thought I was done at #3, 6, and 8. And then 9. But then I have had 4 chemicals in 6 months and feeling a void. And I'm almost 47 and already incredibly blessed so I feel silly. And greedy. And ridiculous. My last was concieved at 44 while breastfeeding every two hours around the clock and after just one pp cycle. I still have regular cycles though so maybe... I personally know at least 4 women who concieved naturally at 47. Maybe God put them in my life for a reason. I don't think we see a lot of the 40 something crowd on ttc boards because most aren't actually trying. Who knows. Now I'm rambling. Anyway, I could use some prayers. This month was a bust because my husband was out of town so just waiting for af. I'm somewhere around 6 or 7 dpo.

Hi guys. Thanks for responding. It's good to hear from each of you. To aj 38, I completely understand how you feel. I know it can be such a consuming endeavor. Part of me wants to say don't give up, but I know in your heart you know what is the right choice for you and your family.

To momof9treasures, I love your story. It is so encouraging. I also am believing beyond hope and often feel selfish and ridiculous. But the birth of our daughter at 41 was such a miracle and she's such a joy that I can't help to keep trying. How can I not? I am about 7-8 dpo and waiting for my hpts to arrive before I start poas obsessively.

Love and blessings to you all.
