I am in the 2WW period. Cycle day 30, but AF feels like she is just lurking around the corner and will show her nasty self any day now. Feeling a bit crampy today, so not the most pleasant to be around at the moment! :)

My stats:

42yo (43 December 8th)

DH is 35 and a sweetie

2 Dogs (both labs), a Chocolate named Luna, and a Yellow named Gambler

We live in Northern California

TTC #1 since our May 25, 2002 wedding date. We got pregnant on our own 4 months after the wedding, but I miscarried in early December just 3 days before my 41st b-day.

Since then, we have been trying on our own as well as several IUI cycles with injectibles. We will be having our first IVF end of August/early Sept.

****BABY DUST TO ALL*******

I'm Julie, 44 (45 in Nov.). I'm a SAHM 0f 3 (ds10, dd7, and dd4). I am trying for #4 naturally. I went through infertility tx with #2. I have been off birth control pills now for 21 months and have had no luck. I'm not doing anything special, just bd'ing at the right time. This is day #13 of my cycle, so I've probably just ovulated. My cycles have become shorter, and the amount of flow scantier as I've reached my 40's. I did see EWCM Sunday, and immediately bd'ed with dh, so hope springs eternal.

I wish each of you luck and baby dust.

I am waiting to ovulate - probably today! I got a + OPK yesterday, and I usually get my coverline the next day. I am a little worried because my temps have been almost flat this cycle - nothing wrong with my BBT, I checked. Even though I have having all the signs of impending ovulation - I am a little afraid it might be an annovulary cycle...


I am 50y old, DH is 44y. Our first anniversary is July 25th.

I have 3 grown children from a previous marriage, we are TTC DH's first child. While TTC my children, I experienced 5 miscarriages (7-14w), and multiple suspected chemical pregnancies. I had all the testing, but no reason was found.

We were surprised to find ourselves pregnant in Jan/04, due to birth control failure. We had no sooner adjusted to the exciting news, when I miscarried on Valentine's day. Since then we have had 3 chemical pregnancies in a row.

We are not using any medical assistance - just lots of vitamins and herbs to help our fertility and hopefully find a good egg/sperm combination! Well, and lots of BDing!

I'm currently in the waiting period. But kinda feel like AF is coming so I'm a bit cranky too. If AF comes, she comes on Friday but I think I may have O'd a little late this month (not sure, got busy at work, couldn't test as I was supposed to, see below) so I'm not really expecting her that day, probably more like Sunday. Unless, of course, the miracle of miracles happens but I'm not holding my breath.

TTC#1, got married at 35 to a wonderful bagpiper (yes he wore a kilt at the wedding, hubba hubba) probably should have started trying right away but wanted some couple time, come from a family of great proliferation, kinda expected it to rub off on me, had one M/C 8 years ago (completely unplanned and not with current hubby so it was a Godsend) and another M/C one year ago today, decided to wait again until after we moved to try again, started trying again in March, using OT but so far no luck, Doc doesn't want to see me until I've tried for 6 months, which will be next month. Have one really spoiled dog, a sister who's 41 and expecting her first in August (did do clomid for a while but actually got pregnant after she stopped taking it), my mom had my youngest brother when she was 39, so there is a family history of late conception. Have way too much stress at work and high blood pressure so I think that's probably what's keeping me from conceiving. Trying to work out a way of reducing the stress without leaving my job (which I'll end up leaving anyway once we have a tot! Definately all about staying home!)

So yeah - that's where I am.

Hi all,

I'm Deidra 42, DH is 51, we live near Houston, TX. DH and I weren't TTC when I came up pg by accident. We really got used to the idea of a new baby in the house when I had an amino at 16wks but a few days later my water broke and the gave us some hope that the bag could refill but it didn't and by the time I made it to 17wks the baby died. Amino results were that she was a perfect baby girl. So we are sure it was the amino that did it. This was only 3 1/2 weeks ago on 6/22 when Lacie Leanne was delivered.

Since then DH and I have decided we want to TTC. (Probably will have trouble now that I acutally WANT to.) Bought some ovulation strips and started taking my BBT in the am just to get used to doing it and to see what is normal. Just stopped bleeding so it will probably take a while for first AF.

I have one DD17, DH has 5: DD 13 adopted-blind & autistic, DS 21 in Army just left Iraq, DS 27-still finding himself, DD-29 with two beautiful grandchildren 5 and 2, and DS-31-TTC with his wife.

I know I should look a gift horse in the mouth with the wonderful family that I already have, but I sure miss my baby and want another.

So lots of baby dust all around,

I'm new here. I'm 40 and ttc #2. My DH is 37 and we have a beautiful DD who is 2. I thought we'd done it this month, but unfortunately, AF showed up this morning! :( AF was due on Sunday. This is my second cycle of trying, so I'm gearing up for cycle #3. I want to try and see if it comes naturally, but I don't want to wait too long. I am really looking forward to another baby. I want my dd to have a sister or brother so badly!!! Wish me luck as I wish the best for everyone here! :)
