I was a little intimidated by 30, but I like it fine. I've had enough of 20s Still adjusting to 31, though

We got married in August 2011, but we've known each other since we were 14, and we've been a couple for almost 11 years now. As you can see, we like to take our time!

Good point! There are definitely some parts of my 20's I'd never ever want to go back to.

Hi ladies
I'm 29 so 30 is just around the corner. I am on cycle 5 off Bcp and ttc for 4 cycles. We are keeping it a secret that we are trying so I don't have anywhere to vent

Welcome!

We aren't telling people either which is really tough! I just don't want to be constantly fielding questions. It's easy to just say we'll have kids eventually!

So sorry about your m/c! Hopefully the bloodwork will give you some answers.

Hey there everyone! I just joined and was happy to stumble across this thread after feeling extremely old. DH and I are both 32. We have been TTC #1 since October. When we started TTC I got very discouraged for a while since everything you read basically says you are close to death in re: TTC past 30. AF is due 8th or 9th and I am pretty sure that this was not our month. Good luck to everyone!

PS: I think all my acronyms are correct. I'm still trying to learn them.

I think we can just start the early 30s club then. (:

Can I just tell you that my head is about to explode? Oh my good world, I've been trying to figure things out all morning and afternoon, worrying and obsessing over my poor patient husband's little swimmers. Reading and researching and asking and panicking...should he go on FertilAid, should he take motility boost or count boost or none or both or maybe we should do head stands with our tongues out. I'm so scared I'm doing this wrong and that we're going to try for years when I could have just done that one thing that would have gotten us our baby early...that one thing.

I've lost my mind.

Somebody tell me to calm the crap down. lol

Welcome! Actually there was an article posted here recently that talked about how those statistics are really old and there isn't much of a difference between 20s and 30s in terms of conceiving. I'll see if I can find it and post it!

I know how you feel, TTC is so stressful and brought even more so when there's a documented issue. I find that reading success stories of natural pregnancy with male factor makes me feel better. If it happened for them, it can happen for me. I've seen success stories of natural pregnancy with only 1 million sperm! If they can do it, we can too!

Also, one SA isn't the be all end all. Doctors say that 3 is better to get an accurate analysis. 10 or 100 would be even better, but not going to happen! Every time they do it, it changes. It could give low one time and normal the next. Could be that he was sick or not eating well or many other factors. It takes 3 months for sperm to develop, so you don't see the changes take effect very quickly.

There's also the fact that many people get pregnant without ever doing an SA because they are lucky enough to conceive quickly. It's possible that many of those pregnancies had an undocumented sperm issue, but they still got pregnant! It happens all the time, and the good news is that you know what you are dealing with so early on that you can start making lifestyle changes and have hubby take vitamins to help improve things.

I say all this to say, calm down! We need to get you a sign that says Keep Calm and Stop Googling!
