Early 30's TTC #1


Hi all ,
I'm 31 and on my 4th month TTC #1... Finding myself getting quite down about this whole thing not happening yet (even though I know realistically it's not been long yet!) so would love some buddies around my age also TTC their first... I'm praying I get a BFP soon , so come on guys, maybe we can bring each other some GL... We can go on to be bump buddies then too...
to everyone

So Caroline... Have you gone to a doctor to get tested yet? I know is too early, and doctors don't want to see you until you have tried for a year.... but I think that is just mean!!! If I feel this way by trying for 4 months only, I can't imagine how would I feel after a year!!
I have been going to the doctor already..I had to lie to be seen ... I don't want to waste any time!!! specially because of my age! If I would be 25 or even 30 I would feel less stressed about it... but I feel my time is ticking! I will be 33 in May!!!! How did this happen???
At least you are one year younger... I wish I would have started last year.... When will you be 32?

Hi Alexia - I just looked at your chart and I see FF has decided you did Ov this month - so that's good news hey? GL in your 1st 2ww

Hi Fiona, where are you in your cycle at the moment then? Did you Ov yet? GL to you

Hey Arianne, so what did the doctor say? How long did you tell him you'd been trying?!?!? I'm so rubbish at lying, lol, so no, I've not thought about that yet... I'll probbaly add a month or two on if it comes to it though... but fingers crossed it won't... But yeah, like you say, I don't really want to waste any time either... that's why I started temping and opks straight away - firstly to make sure I was Ov-ing after coming off bcp... and then, well, to try and get it to happen asap... Part of me was expecting it to happen really quickly though, which only adds to the dissappointment each month, but then part of me, as I mentioned, has this huge fear that it'll never happen... I really don't know how I'd cope if that were the case...
I'm going to be 32 next June - (so even our birthdays are quite close!!! haha) and as you said, I've no idea how I came to be this age!!! I still feel like I'm 10 years younger!!!! Gees, in some ways I still feel like surely I can't be old enough to have a baby yet, let alone getting on the old side to be doing so!!!! It's so strange!!!
So how old is your DH? Mine is 37! He's got 2 boys from a previous relationship - 13 and 16! TBH, I've always found it really hard that he has kids already when it was something I always wanted... I really struggled with that one...
Oooh, just seen you have a journal - will pop by there sometime - but just to warn you, I am notoriously bad at keeping up with journals on here, lol!!!!!

Well, loads of babydust for everyone - and hope everyone will pop by here every so often for a chat and a moan
GL all, lets hope none of us get a visit from the evil

Caroline!!! My only friend and ttc journal stalker!!

YOu are right, it is not good to lie.. but I felt I had no choice... I've been worried about my ability to have children since I turned 28, bc since then my periods have been very short and light, so I was always going to different docs to ask about it, but I felt they were not paying enough attention to me... and once, a doc asked me if I was trying to get pregnant.. so she planted the seed on my head.

So since I knew that here they can't see you until you have tried for a year, I went in december 08 saying I wanted to see a gyno regarding my light periods as I was trying to get pregnant for 4 months and nothing (I felt funny saying I was trying for a year when I was not even ttc, so I only said 4).. so the doctor gave me an appt to see a fertility specialist for june 09!! I thought it was a joke!!! 6 months wait?!! I said "good thing I am starting this early!!

In june last year I went to the fertility specialist, she is sooo nice, a spanish girl (I am too, so it was nice to speak in our language).
I still remember clearly her words back then "Don't you worry, I am going to help you get pregnant" the first thing she did was look in to my uterus... and I also remember clearly her saying "wow! you have a beautiful uterus"
So as you can imagine, at that time, I didn't know much about the ttc game, so I told her I was just not using protection and not really trying.
She ordered some blood tests and asked me to chart my BBT. I never made a follop up appt bc she asked me to come back with my charts and I never did them, I only wanted the test results.

So I went back this year at the end of september, I was hoping she wouldn't ask about those charts ... so now she thinks I have been trying for a long time... but I told her that I have been really ttc since this year...

This last time I went (I was on my CD13), she looked at my ovaries.. and told me that I had two ripe follicles! she seemed excited, although I wasn't sure what that meant... she said that that is where the eggs mature and that she can see I was going to ovulate soon... so I was confused.. bc I thought we only have 1 egg per cylce.. and she said " yes, but sometimes women have two and that is why twins happen!" later that day I tested with my ov kit and sure it came positive! so I was wondering about the twins thing..

That day she gave me a list of things to test and check ( I can scan them I pass it on to you if you want)
One was an sperm analysis... my hubby was "no way! it is too early to do that!" I was so mad!!so anyway I told him, ok I will do all mine first, and if we aren't pregnant by then, you have to go shoot in a cup!! so now, he is willing to do it... I cried so much yesterday, that his only way to comfort me was "ok baby I will shoot in that cup"

My next (3rd) appt with her is in 2 weeks! she will let me know about my ovarian reserve (Im scared!) and about the semen analysis....
I really want to know about my hubby analysis, bc I read that ejaculating often increases their sperm quality, but if his quantity isn't great, then I shouldn't try everyday around fertility window... now I am trying to do it every other day bc I dont know if maybe he has low sperm count...If he doesn't, then I would like to do it everyday, to get a high quality sperm

Anyway I think this was too long! but I will keep you posted with these things... hopefully you don't need to go to any specialist... I really did all this before becuase I was very concerned about my periods being soo light... but it seems that yours are not that way...

to all early 30's TTC#1!!!

Feel the same way!! I think we will never be 100% ready to have a baby, but age is an important factor to make that decision... If I will be younger, I will probably take my sweet time ttc

My DH is turning 36 in january... I always bother him about being old although we are just about 4 years apart..
And you guys will have your own kids, so it's all good! it will come soon, you will see!!

hoping for a to one of us soon!
