Before I moved to Italy I had a large group of girlfriends who I went to school with. Through FaceBook I see that pretty much all of them have one or two children now. My DH and I got married at the start of the month and started our TTC journey on honeymoon in Paris. We were so hopeful but AF arrived today. Yesterday I found out another of my friends is 13 weeks PG. So happy for her, just wish it was me.....
DH and I are both 30 and were secretly hoping we'd be one of the lucky couples that do everything right and get their BFP on the first try. Yeah right, no such luck. It's still early in the game for us but I feel the biological clock ticking for me too. The longer it takes the older we get.
Human bodies are incredible. We'll all get there, young, old or inbetween.
Baby dust to all you wonderful fearless women

And I know what you all mean about it feeling like everyone else you know is getting pregnant easily. I didn't meet DH until I was 29. I wish now that we had started trying a few years ago, but there was always a good reason to wait. Now I'm just hoping and praying that we didn't wait too long and that we'll be successful soon. I keep thinking I should venture over to the ttc over 35 board, but it scares me too much I know people get pregnant after 35 all the time, but the time pressure does seem lots different that it would have if I had started younger. Oh, well, c'est la vie, I guess. Sending lots of baby dust out to all of you!!!
hey there, same story here i wish we hadn't waited so long we have been together for 9+ years but we always had an excuse, money, travel, career, house etc etc etc . if i had know it was going be this hard i would have started trying long time ago. good luck to you
Alas! Only Retropsect is 20/20!
Okay over 30's
best wishes for the remainder of 2010,
may we all obtain the coveted BFP
and receive the amazing Life gift we are hoping for

Who is testing in July?
I am supposed to test August 1st, but I cant refrain from POAS
and are testing earlier than I should.
But Im ignoring all BFNs until at least 12dpo (currently on 6-7dpo I think)

Hi Everyone!
I hope you don't mind if I join? I just signed up to BnB today after a week of (obsessively) reading different forums and this one is exactly what I feel. I have a 7 year old son from a previous relationship that "just happened" with no stress, no symptom checking and no expectations. I was actually 13 weeks before I realized and POAS. And now I'm 33, documenting every twinge, pain, vein, CM, CP...it's making me CRAAAAZY! I m/c in April (unplanned) at 6wks which devastated me because every month that goes by and no pg happens I feel like I'm running out of time.
I'm currently 5dpo and the clock seems to have stopped moving. lol I need to locate my sanity!

inpghttc.. i'm the 27th at the beginning of this year i told myself that i had to be pregnant by my birthday.. now i'm just months away.. don't know where the time has gone!

aleja.. on one hand i'm ecstatic for anyone who is successful, then on the other hand, when i hear the news it's like a knife to my heart my cousin recently got married and announced just last week that she is 2 months along. SO happy for her but everyone in my family is on my case now because DH and i have been married 2 years +. my mum has even suggested i take some herbal remedies, lol.. and once even attempted to give me tips on babymaking which was mortifying because we never talked about those things before

think i ovulated on wednesday but we didn't BD because DH was away did manage to on tuesday tho so we'll see, but i'm not getting the feeling that this is my month.

and i feel like i'm going crazy because the week i ovulate til AF comes my body gets so weird right now i'm getting a pinching feeling in the ovary area and my mouth keeps springing water.. it's just maddening!

anyhoo, as PositiveUs said, i'm going to stay positive because it's got to happen sooner or later, right? will just ignore that ticking clock in my head and really give it all i've got.

GL and to everyone!

I've read that it is best to BD before ovulation, so perhaps Tuesday was THE day

I noticed some veins on my bb that I cant remember noticing before ...
but maybe I have just never paid attention. [Previous to this attempt I hadn't gone insane on the entire list of 2ww symptoms
and the online charts ...
although it has made the waiting easier and more enjoyable!]

Best wishes ReadynWaiting that this is your month also

Hi ladies!
I understand the pressure. We have only been trying 1 month and my hubbie is already worried. He is still young though (25) so he isn'tlikely to be the one with the dificulty.
I will be 35 in Sept. (Still not sure how I got this old)
I am also wondering is every little symptom is something other than AF.
I lost track of my cycle after we started TTC. I was having fun and forgot to track. now I have no clue when AF is comming, or if... This is still so new.

Hi ladies!


I'll be 31 in August and I already feel the pressure. My cycles have never been normal and I never really cared, but now I feel its the right time. I'm confronted with getting my cycle balanced and a bunch of other health issues that I wasn't prepared for. Frustrating to say the least. I totally feel you gals.

What really kicked my baby fever into high gear was when a very good friend of mine told me she was pregnant. It was a complete accident, really early into a very shakey relationship, totally unplanned and she was totally unready for it. I know, right!!!!!
By way of finding a positive in this, she was 36 when she got pregnant and she gave birth to a very healthy and gorgeous baby girl. She turned into a super star mama over night.
The stork will find us all

I didn't get scared till my gyno said, "you know you don't have alot of time left... Don't you?"
I never even considered the possibility of time running out.
