Barbara, I totally understand.  TTC can consume your whole life and I just want more fun in mine. I want to enjoy things without worrying about O'ing during a trip, or how reliable temps are when traveling. I just hope and pray we all still get the end result that we desire so much.  Wishing you  success whether trying or relaxing about trying.

Vickie and Krista, I think my days are literally numbered. I told my DH that, once I run out of OPK, I will not be buying any more of them. (I forgot to mention it earlier, but I do use Pre-Seed.) So we'll continue to "dance" whenever we feel like it with Pre-Seed -- my body doesn't produce enough CM -- but not with the goal of trying to get pregnant. I hope that all makes sense, and I hope it's not a downer to anyone or everyone. Barbara

Your signs sound great Vickie!  Mine are similar, so I'm hoping the best for both of us:)  My DH was willing, but has pretty much "checked out" of the baby mode.  This month is it for us too.  I've had two pregnancies conceived at this time of the year, so I'm hoping this is my "fertile period":).

It is really good to see you all here. Hoping we can get to chatting again and get the board very active. I'm wishing everyone nothing but the best for this cycle.

Vickie, 43, hubby, 46

CD 32

Trying natural with temping, charting and checking CP and CM

AFM, FF says I'm 7 days past O. Not sure I totally agree but something is going on. BB's are tender and burning so trying to be a little hopeful that there was a good egg in there. This will be our last try, and honestly, hubby didn't even know we were still trying. I think he has been done for a few months but hasn't really said anything.

Hi galsSmile  It's good to hear from you--the board has been so slow since the switchover!  

I'm Krista (40), DH (43)

CD18; 6dpo; AF is due on 12/11

I am taking prenatals, omegas, and extra folic acid.  Trying naturally.  I had about 5 days of knowing I was pregnant last month before AF startedFrown  Huge let down!  That was our first cycle to conceive since we lost our little boy at 14 weeks in April.  We've decided that this month is our last of TTC.  Whatever happens this month, I'm hoping to be at peace with it.  That being said, I'm still hoping for an extra special Christmas present to put under the tree!  If not....well, we are going on a short cruise with our kiddos in January!  Woohoo!

Fertile thoughts and blessings to everyone!

Nina, I'm sorry to read about your miscarriage!  That just sucks!!  (I've been gone from this board too long!)  I also have fibroid issures (can't remember the size since the nurse at county mentioned it to me during one of those exams but not big enough that THEY were worried about it), but I've started taking iron and Vitamin C pills again to help replace all the blood I'm losing when AF's visiting.  (I hope that wasn't TMI.)  Though I've refused to pay for those online books helping to explain how to get rid of fibroids naturally, I have been trying to "reduce" or get rid of the fibroids naturally by diet and exercise.  AF's visit last month wasn't too bad compared to previous months; so I'd like to *think* it's working somehow!

Since we only have sex when we're TTC, he's happy to get it when he gets it, and that's only when it's time to BD!!  I hope your hubby gets on board to TTC, Nina!

I'm Barbara, and I turned 43 this past October.  My new hubby is 39.  According to my phone app, I'm 15 days into my cycle and 11 days until AF shows up.  We are doing it naturally, and I'm only taking prenatals.  I waited too long to use the OPK, used them anyway, and didn't get a happy face...  :(  We BD'd one day, the day I felt like I might be close to ovulating with the presence of EWCM.  Therefore, I'm not really hopeful for this month.

Having said all that, I'm wishing ALL of us LOADS of baby dust.  That would be such a wonderful present to ourselves for Christmas!!  Barbara

Name, age, spouse and age  Nina, 40, hubby, 49

Cycle day  

Hmm...not eally sure, I think 13 right now on a previously 24 day cycle.

how are you trying? Natural, IUI, are you takig vitamins, herbs?  

Natural.

Anything else you would like to share.

this is my first post period (post miscarriage cycle).  I miscarried on 10/29 and got my period 4 and 1/2 weeks later.  HCG is 0.6 (11/20 draw) so DR considers it zero.  I actually think I ovulated on day 12 which is exactly how it used to be.  Drs say I had textbook mc and textbook recovery.....doesnt feel that way, but encouraging.  I have fibroid issues and am getting nervous that it is going to cause problems...but they are not troubling as far as TTC.  Trying to get hubby on board again is difficult and wondering how many out there experience the same?  

Best wishes to all and I really want this, so I hope again to TTC and get past that awful 8 week point that I lost it all...Doctors say I should be trying again right now- 

Nina, mc at 8 weeks, October 29, 2012, mc at 4.5 weeks on January 12,  staying positive and third times's a charm???
