New here and wanting to be pg!!

Hi! I'm new and I guess I have the same hopes and dreams as everyone else here!
I just turned 40 in September. We already have three children. My oldest are both boys, ages 11 (12 in December)and 8. Both these boys took 9 long months to conceive.
Our youngest child is a girl. I had been praying for a girl before trying to conceive..before we could even get started trying however I discovered that I had a kidney tumor (at a pre-prenatal visit) which turned out to be malignant after they removed my kidney.

A year later we decided to try again (still praying for that girl) but AGAIN before we could really get started we had the oppertunity to adopt a 1 yr old little girl. She is almost 4 now.

Now at 40 dh and I have decided we'd really like one more.

I am day dreaming of a fat fair haired little boy!
Of course all I want is a healthy child...and I do worry about having one that is healthy since I am 40 now.

I have heard of the Fertile-Focus ..that saliva test microscope thing. Since even when I was younger it took such a long time to get pregnant I am really interested in this product. Is anyone else using this? Or heard anything good or bad about it?

I have already made an appointment with a dr who is also a fertility specialist *just in case* and I started taking folic acid last night!! LOL

I am really hoping that this is a message board with lots of discussion because as you can see by this length of letter I am BEYOND excited about this!
If I could visualize my way into pregnancy I'd be there NOW! LOL

Have a nice day everyone!

Rhonda welcome to the board and congrats on your children you already have.

Sounds like you are taking all the right steps in ttc again and I wish you the best of luck.

You will find that
