I just wanted to write a little something for those of you TTC#1 Over 40. I know that many of you have expressed feelings of isolation and loneliness in your TTC journey. Not only do you feel isolated IRL, but sometimes on this board too.


The TTC Over 40 is a relatively small (but special) club, if you are TTC#1, the club gets even smaller. However, I think your club is the most special of all: your BFPs the most joyful and your

Krista,

I also appreciate your words. I had made a comment previously about being a TTC#1. My comments were not meant to be divisive, but more to voice the confusion, fear, and anxiety about what I was getting myself into. I don't think one can really understand what it means to be pregnant or to have a child until you actually do (like finding "the one"!). It's important that we are all supportive of each other (isn't that why we are here?) and acknowledge this incredible journey each of us has undertaken. Most days I am a rollercoaster of emotions and thoughts regarding TTC! And feeling like the oddball (yet again) for not following the paths that friends and family have taken already. Anyway, your post made me feel a lot better and welcomed. Congrats on becoming CL! Doing a great job so far!!
