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 thru 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.

We 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.

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.

Question of the week:Morning person or night owl?

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.**

Still waiting to O.
This week is crazy and it is ending with a family get together to celebrate the kid's birthday. I can't believe my baby is turning 2 on Saturday. My oldest will be 5 in a few weeks, but I am getting out of 2 family gatherings by combining them. She is having a friend party on her birthday.
Then Sunday is my nephew's birthday. If he was still here with us, he would have been 19. I can't believe the years that have gone on without him. He died just shy of his 13th birthday from leukemia. We were like brother and sister, then I was his caregiver for a couple years too. He never met any of my kids because I lost our first pregnancy and then it took us until after he died to get pregnant with DD. I know he would have adored them. He loved babies and little kids.

Re: TTC 30+ Oct. 22-28

I'm in the 2WW with the last cycle on Clomid before DH needs to get checked out. Right now he's not willing to do that - he'd rather just keep trying on our own without any help, even if that takes years. We've been actively trying seven months so this is an emotional time for me! I want to be aggressive about achieving pregnancy!

It's so hard to lose people that you love! I hope you get through this week with a peaceful heart.

My DH has always been very supportive of having more kids.....he has always wanted at least 5! I can't imagine how difficult it would be to not have your DH on the same page as you! I hope you guys can figure out a way to both feel comfortable with your ttc journey.

Re: TTC 30+ Oct. 22-28

That's exciting! I just looked at our chart.....did you sleep in this weekend? Are you using OPKs? This is about the time that I would start testing 2 or 3 times a day! I'm a bit over zealous though. Ha. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

They should make an emoticon for "ovulation dust"

Totally need an ovulation dust emoticon. Who is going to work on that?

I'm waiting to O...sorry I haven't been here much, had company (mother in law.) We have a pretty good relationship so I hope it doesn't delay the O


I'm doing a LOT of different things this month, mostly supplemental changes so I'm praying it makes all the difference

Is he worried about there being an issue with him or just freaked out by the whole process? I know my DH had to "give his sample" at the office cause we lived an hour away so there was no other option but I know if you live pretty close you can do it at home and take it in so its not that bad. Mine was relieved that there was no issue with him, of course that put all the pressure on me but at least we knew that if I got myself straigtened out that we had a good chance Hopefully it'ss work this month and you won't have to worry about it

FX for all of you waiting / getting close to O! Hoping to see some BFP's from all of you!
