Most of you probably don't remember me, as I was never very active on the board and I haven't been around for a few months. I just checked in to see how things were going and am happy to see some good news for some of you! So sorry to hear about Jeanne, though.


It's now been two years since we decided to try for a fourth child. We went from trying naturally to seeing an RE. We were uncomfortable before and during the assisted reproduction process and stopped it at the end of the summer. I would still like another child, but naturally, if it happens. I'd say that's unlikely, as my cycles are getting funky: temps after ovulation slope up very slowly and drift down again too soon. It's a little frustrating to think that there is probably an "art" to getting the hormone cycles right, but no "artists" who know how to do it. The practitioners/REs intervene in such extreme ways...


Anyway, I am quite fine now and wondering if I would really have had the energy for another child if it had come. Who knows, I may still find out!

Hi, I remember you! I am not very active on the board anymore, we are not actively TTCing anymore, but not preventing either. I think I am at the same place you are right now, okay with either way. I want another, and then I have a day with my kids where I wonder what I was ever thinking when I wanted one at all! Yes, I have a teenager, and one working on it! Lol! I am glad you are more at peace with it now, and I know things will work out as they should for each of us. (((Hugs)))
