Hi Trolley Dolly!

I'm also 33 and dh and I are trying for our first, so your post jumped out at me! I was super excited at first to be TTC, but 6 months down the line the excitement is starting to wear a bit thin... I don't know how you've been finding it, but I find there's definitely more pressure when you're starting in your thirties - although I'm still delighted to be trying of course!

Sorry to hear that your dh's sa results came back a bit low, but it's good that you've been able to get some tests done. Are you finding your GP supportive so far?

Hi fruitful....yeah the excitment has gone and im starting to wonder if it will ever happen.I think there is a definate worry every time i open the paper its constantly saying dont leave trying for a baby 2 late and after 35 your fertility dramatically reduces...so yeah i feel quite under pressure.In october we would of been trying for a year so gonna go back to the gp and be firm with them they have been good so far putting us through some test etc.We r both taking our vitamins and trying to live a healthy lifestyle but so many celebrations are coming up its so hard to cut out alcohol atm.
We r gonna use conceive plus this month and opk when ov starts...where r u in your cycle?

Hi there,I
I'm completley New to this. I too am TTC ,it's been 6months now & no joy. I'm 32 years young and am definitely feeling the pressure,and worry because of my age . I am already a mummy to my son who is 8. I I wasn't planning on children then,but so glad I did. I have a new partner now,who is great with my son,we are both so desperate to have a baby together,i physically dread my period due date,which happens to be today! Haha x sorry to waffle on..its all I seem to think about at the min x

hi, ladies. i am 32 years old and also TTC #1 (my husband is 45). i never felt i wanted to have a baby until just recently and i also feel worry that i've waited too long and am scared this is not going to happen. we are only on cycle 3 of actively TTC but i'm already feeling deflated. usually around O or TWW i get optimistic and then i get AF and am crushed again until next O when i cheer up, lol. i've been off the pill since march and we were NTNP until a few cycles ago (we were waiting until after our wedding in june). it's torturous wondering...i'd settle down if i knew it would happen some day for sure but that's not something that can be answered and i am very bad at being patient but i have no choice, lol. i'm waiting to O right now and it's driving me nuts, i want to get going already, lol.

Hi girls! Wow there are lots of us now - awesome!

Trolley Dolly - yeah, I know what you mean about the 'deadline' feeling, but from what I've read, our odds are still really good in our mid thirties, but sometimes it can just take a bit longer. Good on you for taking the vits and living healthily - that's really positive! I don't think you need to avoid booze completely - a girl does need to have some fun My main thing has been to cut back massively on coffee - I was drinking about 4/5 cups before I read that that can be bad. Should have done my research before I started TTC - doh
I'm waiting to O (next week) - I started using Conceive Plus and OPKs last month, and I'll be doing it again this time around. Where are you in your cycle?

Friskyfish - Hi!! Yeah, kids are just great (sigh)! Is that a pic of your son? - he's really cute! Fingers crossed your period doesn't come today - keep us posted. The end of the 2WW is the worst.

Tink80 - Hello! Your post made me smile, because I pretty much could have written it myself. DH and I even got married in June too Yeah, it's a *much* rougher emotional ride that I'd imagined, but, with a bit of support from each other, we'll all get there in the end. When's ETO (Expected Time of Ovulation - I've just made that one up)?
