Hello Ladies!

Geez, I don't know where to start. Dh & I have 2 ds's (ages 4 & 2) who are the absolute delights of our lives. I wouldn't want a world that didn't have them in it. Dh & I have decided to try for baby #3 & thought we might see if we could sway, however slightly, the odds of having a dd in our favor & have tried the O + 12 (bding after 12 hrs. after ovulation) method for the last 2 cycles w/ no result. I know 2 cycles isn't long & using O+12 lessons the chances as it is, but I'm starting to wonder if maybe we just need to "get busy" anyway b/c the stats for someone my age aren't starting to look so good.

I'm not sure where I'm going w/ this - I just found this board, started reading, & now I'm starting to get really nervous. I've had a m/c @ 17 wks & don't want to go thru that again. Maybe instead of trying to be so tricky about the whole thing, I'm starting to think I may not even be able to get pg naturally. The stats are what they are & the news is what it is, I guess I just didn't realize the reality of it.

I've seen those kind of premenopause testsin the stores. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Would that give me any kind of useful information?

Sorry this post is so disjointed & I truly hope I haven't offended. I guess I'm just a bit.... I dunno.... stunned (kind of like Mother Nature just came up & smacked me in the face - lol!).

Hoping there's hope (but knowing God has a plan anyway),
