Hello everyone. I am new to this site. I have been a member of another forum since Feb 2005 since I first started ttc. Today, after getting a BFN at 17 dpo, I realized that I was in the wrong place. I was surrounded by kids having kids and kids ttc. I felt so alone and disconnected.

Here is a little info about myself.

I am 45, dh is 32 and we have been ttc for 1 year this month. Next month will be our first wedding anniversary. Neither of us have any children although I was pregnant once in 1982 while in college. The pregnancy did not come to term voluntarily.

Until I was 43, I was not interested in having kids and suddenly, without warning, it hits me. I am pretty near to accepting the fact that it will never happen. I thought I will give it a few more months, but I need a new support environment. Dh is not ready to call it quits just yet.

I look forward to getting to know everyone and sharing in your success stories. Thank you for listening and allowing me to join.

Hi, Emily. My dh is adopted along with his 4 siblings, but I don't know whether that is an option with us. My dh has a brain tumor (under control now) which has limited his use of his legs and one hand. I, on the other hand, was diagnosed with narcolepsy and seizures in 2004. So, you see, we are not the ideal candidates.

I am not too sure about what our next move will be. I was not prepared for this to be so hard.

"monkhester" is from my favorite character by an author named Anne Perry. She has a series called the "Monk" series which is the male character's surname. Hester is his wife.
