Hello! New to TTC forum and TTC#3

Hello ladies!! I an new to this forum, though I am not new to IV. Once upon a time, I started in an expecting club-July 2005. My oldest DD was born in June of that year and is now 5 and in Kindergarten. My youngest DD turned 4 in October and is in preschool. My DH and I have been married for 10 years, and are TTC #3 now, and have had 2 cycles thus far. (AF is just making her appearance now, unfortunately)

A little bit more about me-I am 35 and a SAHM. And I have a title now..."advanced maternal age." Yikes! I had always wanted a big family, but after my youngest was born, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, which is an autoimmune disease. I have a moderately severe case of it (those are their terms) and have had many ups and downs with that in the past few years, which has put any TTC efforts on hold (I was in a drug trial for almost 2 years, and not allowed to get pg less I risk being kicked out, then that med stopped working and now I am on something else). Because of quite a bit of predisone (corticosteroid) use in the past few years, my cycles are not being cooperative at all. I have an appt to see my OB on 12/1, and hopefully we can figure out a plan!

Oh, and to complicate things, lol, my DH really wants a boy, so we are trying to time everything for that as well. Eeesh.

So glad to be joining you ladies, and I hope and pray everyone gets a BFP very soon!!

Hi Laura!

I'm a mom of three, two boys, and a girl, and I know in my heart our # 4 will be another boy. I've already got names picked out. :)

I hope your dr. appointment goes well, and that you see two little lines soon!!

Thank you for the warm welcome, Toni and Monika!! It is nice to be here (well, I'm sure we would all like to be in an expecting club too, but it is great to be amongst others TTC!)

And I apologize about my sig, lol. I haven't been on the boards here in a few years, and my sig was outdated and full of icons (we used to have tons of them-it was a bit much, obviously!)-I have updated...those are last years Christmas pics, but at least they are both in it!

Hopefully we all get the best Christmas present there can be-a BFP!!

Hi Laura! We have alot in common... DH and I are also TTC #3, and have two DDs, ages 7 and 4. I started in the TTC board in early 2003 and then ECs since then, but haven't been back here in TTC since my first DD.

I am also "advanced maternal age" :smileyhappy: as I turned 36 this year. December will be month 6 for us. Good luck with your TTC and hope you see a BFP soon!
