    Welcome to all the new comers (I'm relatively new myself). I am Irish and live in Lancashire, UK with my wonderful husband.

    A quick message to SB: Just want to wish you luck and let you know I admire your courage and determination. Best of luck as with your motivation and outlook, you can't help but be a great Mother. :hugs:

    I think I might be the eldest person posting here as I am 45 (46 in May) and started ttc #1 two months ago. Hopefully sharing that info should make all you 30-something gals feel a LOT better.

    Thanks so much for the welcomes!

    I don't know about you all but my irregular cycling is driving me
    crazy!! I am hoping that once my diet kicks my weight loss
    into higher gear, things will normalize again and give me and DH
    a shot (no pun intended lol) at getting Preggie!


    I have to get on the phones and find a good OB/Gyn, hopefully
    one with a good bedside manner!

    Hello everyone here..

    i am new, this is my 1st post on this forum.

    i am 42, my hubby is 35. We ttc since we started planning our marriage 3 years ago. So far, no news yet. i am so stress and tired. dont know how long can this last and kill me thoroughly.

    i have got a delay in my period for 14 days last month, tested on the 5th & 10th days, but negative. Havent missed my period since the 1st P, always have 28 days cycle.

    i am not sure what had happen to me, am i getting too old TTC?? or my system already messed up after TTC for so many months.

    We even tried on IUI, 2 times, failed.

    tell you more next time i post here... good day.

    Hi all, I am a bit inbetween groups, I have just turned 30 and H is 30 in August, which I guess has given us a push to start TTC. Only been going since End December and am on CD3 today so feel a bit grotty, looking forward to fertile week though!

    Hi Ladies. This is my first post on this site. I'm 36 and my SO is 29 (lully!). We've been TCC for 18 months and had all our fertility testing finalised 13th December 07. We're both OK and have been put forward for IVF under unexplained infertility. We then discovered we were preggers on 27th Dec! Sadly, we lost the baby on 5th Jan just coming up to 7 weeks :cry:. Both still really, really sad, but we've been told by the dr to start again straight away. So we're BD like our life depends on it! We're both keen to try and get preggers naturally again if we can.

    Not had post mc AF yet, so can't really do any calculations. Can anyone advise when I'm likely to get AF? Have had ectopic before (Dec 04), but can't really remember much about that time and it was all tied up with surgery etc.

    I have loads of questions about eating and drinking habits too, cos Im trying to eat as if I'm preggers for when I fall again (SO has told me to think when, not if!). Can anyone help? Can you drink decaff coffee/coke or is it too processed? Is honey OK? SIL has said no cos it's a live food, but it's supposed to be a fertility aid! I know peanuts are out, but are other nuts ok? Sorry to bombard on first post, but I'm so excited to find this site! :happydance:

    Look forward to hearing from you x x x

    Just checking in to see if there is anyone out there like me. I am 35 (almost 36) and me and my husband have been trying since May of 07. I have 3 children from a previous marriage and we decided after being together 7 years that we would like to try and add to our family. Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong. I am temp charting and doing the OPK and every month I am doing everything right (or I think I am) I have been to my doctor and everything looks great from the surgery and I am ovulating normally so what is my problem. My husband has had a semen check and he is great too. Please help! Anne

    Yes, well kinda in the same position. I'm 35 and have been ttc for about 1year now. Same, doing everything supossed to be doing but nothing happening yet. I reckon that we have to keep on trying and keep positive, when I went for my hsg last week the doctor who carried it out said that thinking positively will help she also said that as Doctors they are even told to recommend prayer to their patients as it affects the part of the braun that controls good feeling and therefore has a knock on effect on hormones etc.

    I know it's a bit heavy for a Wednesday afternoon but I thought that it might help and to remind myself also.

    Take care spk soon

    I hope we will all be able to conceive soon! I am praying every day and night. Each month comes and goes and my hope diminishes a little every month. I keep praying so hopefully it will happen soon!
    Has anyone heard about having too much intercourse that it can weaken the sperm? Is it a myth or can it be true? During the week of ovulation we try at least once a day. Is that too much? WOW Too much info for a Wed!

    Some say that to BD every other day is better as it gives OH to recover and produce better swimmers.

    Hi,

    I am 38 years old. Myself and DH were TTC for just over a year and a half when I fell pregnant last December. Unfortunately I suffered a missed miscarriage at 10 weeks two weeks ago and now find myself back on the TTC road. I am currently waiting for my cycle to return which will probably take a few weeks and then we are going to start trying again.

    Hi all

    I am Farheen and will be 32 this year and TTC #1

    Been married for 4 years this July and havent used any contraception since been married ....so pretty much was open to conceiving asap...

    nearly 4 years on and no success whatsoever

    its been an emotional journey and now i dont even discuss it with hubby as he thinks its not a good time for us 2 have a kid....but then in his eyes it never is! so i think its pretty much just get pregnant and tell him about it when its done :wacko:

    anyway i am currently residing in Saudi Arabia

    my cycles are whack and i just dont know what i can do....ive had all the tests and they were all ok...hubby was all clear and i have taken fertility tabs for 6mnths with no result

    no money for IVF etc so no idea what i can do now except just keep trying the old fashioned way

    Hi,
    I am Lorraine and me and my husband have been trying for a baby for nearly 2 years. I am 36 and he is 34.
    My husband has low motility and morphology. We went to see a specialist in November and have been told that we would need ICSI. We are not entitled to any help on the NHS as I already have a daughter (age 13).
    We can pay for ICSI privately but this will cost approx 3K per try, not the kind of money we have spare at the moment.
    In the meantime we have both changed our lifestyles and my husband is taking loads of vitamins in an attempt to improve the motility and morphology of his sperm.

    Look forward to chatting to you soon!
