TTC 30+ 1/26 - 2/16 it's baby time.


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.
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.



Question of the week:
what do you and your SO do for valentine's day? is it a couples night or a family affair?

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)
and a link to your chart if you'd like to join in on the stalking

Re: TTC 30+ 1/26 - 2/16 it's baby time.

I'm on CD3 this morning. Come on Feb cycle!

I've started Ecotrin, Salmon oil and Vitamin B complex along with prenatals. This cycle has to work.

DH is going in for a semen analysis on Tuesday next week so its just over a week wait to find out if the boys are functioning as well as they should. If I don't get a BFP this cycle I have a gynea appointment on 7 March and I will ask him.

He is not a wait and it will happen kind of Dr. He is a here, I will inject you with this and MAKE it happen kind of Dr. I love him. LOL

Question of the week: where is your favorite place to have date night?
We often relive the first date and go for sushi Luckily, we get several date nights through out the month, and we try and mix it up.

Waiting until Tuesday to test again. Im very hopeful, but we'll see!

Re: TTC 30+ 1/26 - 2/16 it's baby time.

Hi ladies!

Puppydog - Sounds like you're doing all the right things. Glad you know your doc will be ready to help if you're not pg by then! Hope you will be, though.

Pumpkinseeds - FX for you! Where are you in your cycle now? Hoping for you!!

8 DPO here. Not many symptoms to speak of. Trying not to count myself out too early but I'm not sure it's going to happen. It did take a couple of cycles on the progesterone to get a BFP last time so perhaps that's what I'll need. I would so love an October baby, though. If I got a BFP this cycle my DD would be 10/12/13. My bday is on the 12th and I love that number! Sigh. Still possible. Trying to wait to test until Sat since AF is due Friday and I hate testing just to get AF a few hours later. It sucks. We'll see if I can hold out testing this week. I guess it'll help if I don't have symptoms to get me excited.

QOTW: We don't get out too much but there is a sushi place nearby we love. Also a really tasty, cheap vegetarian Indian buffet. But usually when we go to that it's with DD before we pick DS up from preschool so I guess that's not exactly a date night! But we just can't go out and pay for dinner and a sitter that often so we make it work. Plus DD loves Indian food! Love that crazy toddler girl.

Re: TTC 30+ 1/26 - 2/16 it's baby time.

Hi ladies, I'm still checking in to cheer you all on! Babydust all around and lots of

QOTW : there aren't much choices in our hometown for date night and we only get one a few times a year! DH likes to stick with what he knows, so normal type restaurants. And then we spend the whole time talking about the kids, texting his parents how the kids are...yup, so silly!

Looks like you put me in the graduates but I am not
wish i was tho!

CD 15 for me not a whole lot going on... I ended up canceling 2 appointments with current obgyn and made an appt with a new practice they deal with high risk and so we will see...maybe they can help me "stay" pregnant

QOTW: I like concert date nights!!! Love me some live music!!!

Well my tests have been BFNs since Thursday. BFN at MW appointment on Friday. I decided against blood test because I figured it was a CP and it was going to be over soon. Well here I am a few days late. Anyone ever get a few days of BFP followed by negatives and AF not show? Today I feel like I have morning sickness. I wish I knew one way or the other.

We love to try different local places to eat. We have a lot of neat places fairly close.
