Mixology Sun 16-Sep-12 15:28:45

Hello! I'm new to this - can I join?

I'm 32, married and this is our first month TTC ( although I'm not holding out much hope for this month ).

Pipersouth Sun 16-Sep-12 17:11:28

Hi I'd like to join in too !! Only just TTC for a few months,married,36 nice to know others are going through it :-)

Pipbin Sun 16-Sep-12 17:15:19

Hi Piper Nice to meet someone my own age. I was beginning to feel like a grand old lady here.

I might just change my name to The Dowager Duchess at this rate.

Pipersouth Sun 16-Sep-12 17:34:21

Hi Pipbin the Dowager Duchess definately has a ring to it!! The age thing has a bit of a sting to it even though everyone else is in the same boat I feel a bit daft I left it so long

Mixology Sun 16-Sep-12 19:18:23

Well none of us seem to be 22 so I imagine the " age thing" is on everyone's minds. At least we're all getting around to it now!

Bunnygirlie Sun 16-Sep-12 21:42:21

I think on our previous thread we were all over 30 so none of us are spring chickens ;-)

janey1234 Mon 17-Sep-12 06:58:18

Yes, I'm 37 (nearly 38) so far away from
being a spring chicken...

Second cycle of ttc and reaching ovulation time of this month: wish me luck!smile

Dexidoo Mon 17-Sep-12 07:23:56

Hello everyone! I'm on the monthly threads but have been lurking around here for a while smile

I'm Dexi, 33, married for 4 years and on ? Cycle 7 at the moment.

I had my coil out in Jan and ditched the condoms in March ( we were a bit scared of getting pg straight away, oh the irony!) I did get pg in May but miscarried at 6 weeks. So here we are 6 months down the line and I'd stupidly assumed I would be knocked up by now.

4 DPO today...

janey1234 Mon 17-Sep-12 10:45:25

So here's what I know (and correct me if I'm wrong!) - others add yourselves on

WhiskeryWoman Mon 17-Sep-12 12:56:49

Hey there, room for another one?!

I'm 31, have been ttc first baby for 10 cycles with no luck. I've been using CBFM but given up with it now
as it got too stressful.  I was pregnant this time last year but lost it at 16 weeks... so at least I know we can do it!! We'd been trying (not very hard tho) for 2 years for that pregnancy.

I'm really fedup of ttc this time as I so desperately want to be pregnant and have a baby in my arms. I was also really naive to think I'd get a bfp immediately because I was using a cbfm and really understand my body now (unlike last time) so I feel so deeply disappointed each time as I know we're doing everything we can.

Ttc is a tad tricky at the mo as my dp is recovering from a big knee op. so the only way (soz if tmi) is me on top (plus he's tired and in pain)... so I think the next few cycles are written off. Although he's as desperate for a baby as me so will grin and bear it, but it's hardly sweet and romantic, it's all a bit functional and mechanical which puts me off even trying.

frantastic1 Mon 17-Sep-12 17:23:28

Hello thread#2!
Im fantastic, 34 been married for 3 years TTC since June.
hazel isn't here yet is she? I just wanted to say how sorry I was but it WILL happen. Everyone here wants it too much for it not to, and will all be wonderful mothers. I love that everyone is in their 30s.
We've just been away for hubby's birthday. No jiggly though. AF arrived last week. So DTD will commence with vigour on 23 sep!
hello to the newbies x x

janey1234 Mon 17-Sep-12 17:35:01

Oh I'm sorry whiskery. I too was of this time last year and had a mc in oct at 12 weeks - cant imagine how tough it would have been four weeks later... Hugs... But welcome and hopefully this time round we'll be luckier.

No sign of hazel yet no, hope she finds us...

And welcome newbies, fingers crossed for us all...

HazleNutt Mon 17-Sep-12 18:11:45

I think I heard my name smile

Sure, put me back on the list - 33 (34 in a few weeks), TTC for a couple of months.

janey1234 Mon 17-Sep-12 20:46:21

Hi hazle - and hoorah, you found us! Hope you're doing ok x

HazleNutt Mon 17-Sep-12 20:52:27

oh sure, I'm fine. Thanks for asking!

And you and everybody else - any pregnancy symptoms this month?

Bunnygirlie Mon 17-Sep-12 21:15:29

Hello ladies, from the old thread and newbies :-)
Hope you are all well. Whiskery thats so bloody rotten! Like you said at least you know you and hubby have working parts, my parenst tried for 5+ years before I came along and she said if she'd at least had a mc she would have know they could make a baby - does that make sense?
According to my app where I input dates etc I am at in my fertile period so DTD every other day at the mo - it does seem a tad forced but needs must I guess ;-p

janey1234 Mon 17-Sep-12 21:23:44

I'm with you bunny - according to the app am ovulating on thursday... So hazle, I've not got round to imagining symptoms yet this month ...!

ella0 Mon 17-Sep-12 22:13:11

I started using clear blue digital ovulation sticks this month. I have a regular cycle so wasn't going to bother until we'd been trying for 6 months (as I can estimate when my fertile period is), but my husband had heard good things about them, and I thought they'd provide some reassurance that I'm working properly (I've been with my husband for 13yrs and never been on the pill, so I'm a bit worried that I've never accidentally become pregnant, when so many people on the pill seem to).

I had my first smile today on CD14, so I'm in my fertile period too.

Fingers crossed for you all.

Lilyjosh Mon 17-Sep-12 22:21:56

Hi everyone, can I join you all please.

On my 2nd cycle of trying this month, af due 21st sept, no symptoms so don't think we've been lucky this month.

I'm 35 and been married 4 months
