Hello! Just wanted to take a quick second to see how many 30ish year olds are here. I'm 32 and TTC #2.
Sometimes I feel old in this TTC game, but I know logically I'm not THAT old! :) People where I'm from seemed to get started on this whole marriage/kids thing later in life.
What about you? Do you find TTC in your 30s a challenge? I didn't think anything of it until now... Here I am moving onto month 5 of TTC with no luck. I got pregnant with #1 the first time trying! So, I guess I'm a little frustrated this go round. ;)

32 was a good year...i'm now 36 and TTC #2

#1 was conceived the first time trying (i was 33 at the time) - i think my main issue, aside from age, is the fact i work way too much and am way more stressed with work and such this time around than last.

Hi there,

I am 37 right now (feel more like 25 but - alas - my ovaries are actually 37! lol) and we are TTC #2. Our son is 20 months as of tomorrow. DH has 2 children from a previous marriage who are 14 (SD) and 12 (SS), so we have quite the age range in our kids. I wasn't ready to settle down/have kids until I hit my 30s (and met the right guy of course). :)

I'm with ya!! 32!! With my first 3, I was in my 20's which seem so far away and like you, whoop bam boom, pregnant. I did have to work a lot harder to get pregnant with my 3rd but the month I figured out the CM pattern, I was pregnant. Now at 32...a year later and I'm wondering is it my age? Are all my eggs old and dusty? LOL

I'm 32 next month, on the 16th... I hear you!! Having all those babies in your 20's you feel like a machine... now I feel like I've been shoved in the back room for awhile and somebody just dragged me out as the antique model!!

BUT, that's kind of what's making this fun for me... that I can still do it :) I mean, I KNOW 32 isn't too old to make babies by far... but to me it feels like I'm squeezing one last one in :)

I'm there with ya - I'm 31 & TTC #1! I did get pg when I was young but miscarried. Been TTC for 12 months now; and most of my friends and siblings are either pg, have kids, or both! Just waiting for my turn...
