Wed, 08-01-2012 - 7:53am

Our thread to chat and keep track of how we are and where we all are in our cycles. You can share as much or as little as you like. I have found with TTC there really is never TMI. Hope we have some great success stories for this month and I would like to encourage more of our "read only" gals to drop by and say hello. I love having all of our new members with us and as always, my long time pals here too. Love you girls- you are all a great support and comfort for me!

Post your:

Name (real or a username we can call you)  Age, spouse and any children

CD(cycle day) how many cycles have you been trying

How are you trying? natural, IUI  IVF

Anything else you want to share

Sharon, age 41, TTC for 3 years, 2 miscarriages and 1 heartbreaking choice (this is an abortion due to severe abnormalities of the fetus).  I have a 6 year old DS.

I am trying for a Greyby this month (I am reading 50 Shades of Grey).  DH is not very onboard with my plan. 

I'm on CD9. 

Baby dust to us!

Hi ladies my name is Bec I'm 43 DF is 44 I have 5 children from my past marriage aged 24 to 9 all natural .. In fact my 9 year old wasn't planned and was quite a shock .. An awesome one ... I have been trying for 2 years not even a pregnancy .... I did cupping and acupuncture last month .. Didn't actually notice anything .. I drink far too much coffee because I am a shift worker of 12 hr days .. Coffee is all that gets me through the night .. So that goes against me .. I am in the 2 ww ... Ovulated 04/08 and bd on that day and next and 4 days prior ... So who knows ... I'm totally at peace now with what will be will be .. I have already been so blessed .. Goodluck to all of u ..

Got my fingers crossed for you both (Helen and Tricia)! Oh what am I talking about, I have my FX'd for all of us. Why not empty this board this month... I think that should happen! If I'm having a fantasy it's going to be that somebody poured concentrated healthy baby dust in the TTC over 40 board's water this month!!!  I'll be watching over in the 2WW area. :smileyhappy:

Hi,

I'M Helen, aged 40, DH is 40, we have a son who's 18 months, born when I was 38.

Have been TTC for 9 cycles. Had 2 chem in total (one before son was born and one after).

Trying naturally, using OPKs and temping. Can be hard to fit in BD as hubby gets in late, DS wakes often in the night etc.

Have only managed it about once or twice around OPK + time in the past year. Frustrating to feel the months passing and not getting in enough attempts to try to make it happen.

This month we did manage a few BD around OPK + time so we'll see, but not hopeful as no pregnancy symptoms. CD 23.

Baby dust to all.

Hi Ava! Welcome to the board. I am so glad you decided to join us.  Did you conceive your 5 year old naturally?  I'm hoping you have a short stay here but I can't wait to get to know you better while we await those miracles. Feel free to jump into any of the threads and chat. I hope we can help you not feel alone on this crazy TTC journey.

To all the other girls- I'm not ignoring you I promise- Just super busy and popped in to check on everyone. I will be back to chat soon.
