Will 2009 be MY year?

Hi everyone,


Long-time lurker, occassional poster. I will be 40 in May, have DD6, and H and I have been TTC, on and off, for about 2 years. I don't have any known problems, although I'm at the point now where I think I might have something going on. I had no problems conceiving my daughter, but I was much younger then!


I get AF regularly, about every 26-28 days or so. During the months we have been TTC, I do use OPKs and AF arrives 14-15 days after my postiive OPK. I temped for 2 months and did get the spike, so I do believe that I am ovulating. I know timing is everything, but I'm getting discouraged -- on the months when timing seems great and the lead-up to O is well covered, I get nothing...


I feel that tick-tock of my biological clock and it's strong. My sister-in-law is currently pregnant with her first and so is a cousin. I am surrounded by baby talk and will soon be attending several baby showers. No one knows of my wish for another baby because I don't really want everyone to know -- to me, that would be pressure and stress me out, and I don't need that! I'm stressing myself out already!


I feel bad because I feel like my brother and sis-in-law might be expecting me to "hand down" some of my baby stuff -- particularly my

Kellie, Welcome!


Don't feel badly at all about keeping your stuff "just in case". It is yours and no one should expect you to give something that is yours away unless you volunteer it.


I can totally relate to the depressed feeling when AF shows-as I know many of the women here can. You just have to not give up and keep trying.


I have an ebook that I purchased about diet, suppliments, etc. If you would like me to email this to you, let me know.

Welcome Kellie!! Geeze, I've had 5 kids, my youngest is just 4, and I'm still holding on to my crib! I told everyone even if I don't get another, my grandchildren will sleep in it! Either that, or I told them it was missing some of the parts, which in our household probably isn't too far from the truth!


Keep your stuff---I'm all about positive thinking. And it seems like all your stats are good. I'll be 40 this summer, so we're in the same age range. I just love babies, kinda stating the obvious....my dh works in PA and only comes home on the weekends---so here I am in FL ssoooo close to O and I think I may miss him this month. So so frustrating.


Good luck!

Kellie:

There is nothing wrong with wanting another child... many of us here are in that same boat. There is also nothing wrong with LENDING your crib and other items to your brother. If you conceived this cycle, it would still be 12 months or s before you'd need a crib. No reason your brother can't use it for that year and return it in the same goo condition it was borrowed in. Just tell him - this is a loner, and if I ever need it back... it comes back.

If you don't think he will comply or if he is not the careful type with other people's things... then make up something. BUT honestly is the best policy.

Welcome!

Yes. Yogurt makes you blood sugar spike right after eating it. The difference between glygemic index and glycemic load, as it was explained to me, is the index is measures how high the blood sugar

Sorry to hijack... but the no potatoes... does that include sweet potatoes?

Thanks!
