TTC 30+ 12/7-12/21

This group is designed for those of us over 30 yrs of age. We have a different TTC journey than our younger counterparts & many of us encounter challenges along the way to our coveted BFP. We invite all to join us as we offer advice, support & encouragement to each other through these challenges, as well as celebrating those joyful BFPs.

While this thread is not necessarily labeled as a "struggling TTC" thread, we do ask that if you choose to join us that you remain mindful of the challenges that many of our members are experiencing when posting about BFPs. We are excited to celebrate everyone's BFP, though it can often be a sensitive issue for those for whom it has not been so easy. :goodvibes:

We :wub: hearing from our graduates & hope you are having a HH9M!!! But we ask that you please take the time to catch up on posts, taking note of current losses before posting your pregnancy updates. If any of our sweet mommas are experiencing a loss in the current thread, please consider posting your updates at a different time. :goodvibes:

I'll try to update your status daily, but let me know if I missed you! If I don't hear from you for a few weeks I'll take you off the list. Just post with an update to be re-added. :thumbsup:

Question of the week: what is your earliest childhood memory?

Anyone can answer the question! And if you have suggestions for the QOTW send me a PM. :)

In RED, tell me:
Your handle (and your name and/or age if you'd like)
Where you are in your cycle or if you're waiting for AF to return
Whether you are actively TTC or waiting right now.
**I will look for a change in your status in red throughout the week.**

It sure is quiet here. I hope that means everyone is having a lovely weekend. Anybody testing this week?

I'm at CD21, just waiting for AF so that we can start TTC. I also think that DS (33 months) is finally potty trained. We've been working on it for a couple weeks now and it's finally clicking with him. That just makes me want a new little baby that much more, though I'm thrilled to not be dealing with diapers anymore.

I'm 6dpo today am testing in Wednesday :). Am feeling pretty hopeful. Had cramping on O side last night and have been emotional and have had lower back/hip pain. My breast seem bigger too. Been getting in the way! Oh!!! and ive had thivk super white abundant cm!!! and thats good! Lol. We shall see.
I'm also coming down with a cold though that's been going through the house. Blech.

CD33 here, 15dpo, but not testing...don't have any and I just can't put myself through it anymore. Temps have been all over the map this cycle, not sure what is up with that!

QOTW: My earliest memory is from when I was 2/2.5, which my mom can correlate for me as the neighbour's stove was on fire and she ran over with the extinguisher to put it out, while I stood in the driveway and pooped my pants! I have a photographic memory so lots of early memories are rattling around in my head.

Quite weekend here. Yesterday we went out to my parent's house to decorate the first round of Christmas Cookies. DS is coming down with something so we stayed home today. DD was really upset about missing church.
QOTWEarliest memory. I have so many starting around 3. The most vivid one was when we were at a auction, which was nearly every weekend because we worked the concessions for the 4-H club. It was raining. I was wearing my rainbow raincoat and pink mud boots. My mom sent me from the concession stand to my dad because the lamp that she really wanted was getting ready to go on the block. My father was wearing his yellow raincoat that he wore on the farm, there were a ton of yellow raincoats everywhere. I thought I had found my dad, I tugged on his raincoat, and this guy looked down and it wasn't him. I remember feeling so scared, then I felt my dad pick me up right as I started to cry. He had spotted me with my rainbow coat in the sea of yellow and he held me tight. Daddy won the lamp for my mom right after as well.

I tested yesterday and today (8 & 9dpo??), mostly because I have just had such a bout with these cramps, the strange spotting and sore breast. Of course it was a bfn. I have no idea if I O'd or not, my temps have been all over since they bottomed out a few days ago after I had a few high temps. Still lots of AF like cramping, lots of CM. I guess time will tell. If I haven't O'd I am afraid of missing it.

I hope it is ok to post this next part: Surely ok on TTC forum???
A friend of my sent me to a blog that has the 12 Lays of Christmas. (I am too lazy to look at DS rules right now about posting about other blogs.) Basically it was modifying the Song 12 Days of Christmas to inspire 12 days of intimacy. I think I will modify it, but the challenge starts on December 13th if anyone is interested.

I am liking the test that I got on eBay. I got 100 for less than 20 on Amazon. The seller say US discreet shipping on all of their pics. They arrived within a couple of days too.

Y'know, I thought this would be me...but I kind of dread going back to diaper laundry :hide: I am reveling in my water bill being cut by 1/3 (not that it was high before, but still...) & my gas & electric being under $125/mo for the last few months b/c I'm not doing nearly as much laundry :mrgreen: But I did see a little guy at the mall play area yesterday w/ his adorable knit longies & big ole CD butt, & had a teeny pang of nostalgia...they can be a PITA, but CDs are so darn cute!

Good luck to everyone who's testing soon!

AFM--AF should be here Saturday-ish & I'm hoping that scheduling works to do the IVF this month. DD switched from the devil-sitter to the center around the corner from us. DP & I like it so far, DD hates it :cry: I never had a hard time leaving DD w/ someone to go to work until the last few mos (she's 33 mos now), but it's killing me. DP is just getting done her admin. certificate, so she's looking at jobs; I wouldn't be terribly sad if I had to leave my job & relocate, but getting the house sale-ready would be a nightmare.

Im 4dpo now, I had cramps last night by ovaries and this morning had brown spotting with strings in it. I am pretty sure I am pregnant. I will test on Wednesday.
funny thing is last couple days I have been all over cute clothing, diapers etc and this morning I sorta freeked out before the spotting cause I just KNEW I was gunna get preggo this month. was a string ovulation and I was super in the mood. it would have been nice to go a few months just using nothing and seeing what happens. I guess I didnt have to jump on the gun so quick but I honestly thought I was getting ready for menopause!! wrongo. I am 37 tho, so its probably better it happens now while I still have some energy and I can lose the baby weight more easily

Re: TTC 30+ 12/7-12/21
Okay mama's I have a situation I want to run by all of you! Friday 12/7 I got to work and was fine then all of a sudden I was overcome with lightheaded dizziness...checked my Bloodsugar, blood pressure and all were okay...I then proceded to vomit but didn't have a quesy feeling or anything like a bug...Went home from work took a FRER not FMU of course and got a faint faint HCG on Wed 12/5 was 6 down from a previous 27 on 11/ here is my issue.... I has some light bleeding AF kind on 12/5 and 12/6 and then spotting on 12/7. Do you think my HCG is still being picked up that low on the FRER or do you think I could be Preggers and should retest? My Midwife thought it could still be from the previous loss but thougth maybe it should be out of my system by now... I haven't retested but have been tempted too because don't want to waist a FRER on a BFN! KWIM
