Hi I'm new back to ttc. I have a beautiful dd and we were thinking we'll try to see if we can add to our family. Of course once me made the decision I started scouring the boards and websites and have totally freaked myself out on the prospects of not only getting pg, but of it being healthy. I've gotten pg 2x (both in mid 30s-one a lost) the same month we started trying, I know that won't happen this time around. Ah well, please wish me luck ladies!

A little about myself...I'm 42 and I think I mentioned I already have a beautiful dd who is 6. I lost an ovary at 18, so I'm already down by one...but a couple of years ago the doc told me I've got the hormones of a 20 year old. I've always wanted more children but dh has been hesitant until recently. To be honest he was always a no, and then one day he asked if I still wanted to have another...you can guess my answer! :) So, we'll try, but I don't want to totally stress about it if it doesn't happen. Sometimes reading articles on having children in your 40s is disturbing...I've gotten pg 2x, but lost the 1st one at 12wks. I'm doing all of the stuff I did last time...charting bbt and cm. I'm taking prenatals already and vitamin d. That's about it...I seriously don't think it'll happen the first month of trying, but I guess who knows. Hope everyone has a great weekend.!

Hi. Welcome and good luck. I think you are doing all you need to do...and not stressing is very wise.

Hi and welcome! Sounds like you are doing a great job already, hopefully things come together for you quickly! I also have only one ovary, and in my case it was a helpful thing. :-) My youngest two have come since then, plus I have been pregnant 3 times since my 3 yr old (unfortunately I lost them), so having one ovary does not really mean a lot as long as it is working well. :-)
