Since January I have been mostly lurking and only posting occasionally as we were officially done TTC but weren't doing anything to prevent it either. Well, on Friday morning I had a very faint bfp which I likely would have posted about except our internet was out for almost two days because of a bad spring storm. Because it was so faint, I tested again today and it was negative. I can't say I was surprised on either count, although I know we only BD'd once that could have done anything! Late tonight AF finally started, but it was anything but a normal start, which only confirms what the hpt and my temps were showing. (I haven't been temping fully, just enough to know that ovulation has happened, and to watch for that drop at the end.)

Anyway, that led to a discussion with DH about having more babies. Until now he has been supportive of me, and 'open' to more, but it wasn't really something he truly wanted. He was okay with it, but not desirous, if that makes sense. Well, somewhere since January he has switched over to really wanting this, BUT NEVER TOLD ME! Kind of an important thing! Lol!

What exactly this means for us, I am not sure. Probably more of me keeping track and hopefully timing things right. Or maybe just staying with the status quo. Whatever, it may well mean another baby, as each of our children have only come to us when DH was finally desiring a child, not just okay with it for my sake. And no, he never did anything that would hamper things before those times, it just seems to be how God works in our lives.

So even though I am 45 and he will soon be 46, it looks like I will stay part of this board for awhile longer and see what happens. After all, my cycles are still quite predictable, something that wasn't the case at all because I never ovulated on my own until I was 34, so maybe I have a few more eggs left as a result. One can always hope, right? Lol!

Michelle, I am so excited to hear that you are "back on board" with TTC as I know how much it has meant to you.

Thanks Laurie! At times I wonder if we are completely sane even wanting another child at our age! But children are blessings no matter when they come, and despite my fear of losing another baby, try as I can I cannot seem to shake that desire for more, and so here we are!
