Here's to hoping you fine ladies can point me in the right direction.

The short version - My daughter (who will be two in December) was born when I was 38 (almost 39).

Welcome, Joan! I too recommend Fertility Friend (if you can see my signature below, click on it to see my chart). You might also want to use an ovulation prediction kit (OPK), which will tell you when you're about to ovulate. I use the store-brand kind from Rite Aid or CVS.

I am very sorry about your loss. So heartbreaking.

Welcome to the board! I was/am a lurker on the preg after 40 board and remember your story well and what beautiful pictures you had taken of your angle. I too am so sorry for your loss. Your young here and TTC may take some time but with your prior relativly easy conceptions you may achieve pregnancy quickly (the hope!!)

I might first talk with your OB/RE about jumpstarting your cycles with the 5-7 day progesterone therapy. You will have a period within a week of stopping the progesterone and should cycle from that point on (in theory)

In any event KUP and again welcome to our safehaven of AWSOME ladies at TTC40+ board!!!
