TTC no 3 at 40 .....

Hi all,

Title says it all really, have 2 lovely children who are 3 and just about to be 1 and I'm desperate for a third. Never thought I would want a third but I'm so keen for another. I'm 40 and type 1 diabetic so probably not in my peak but so keen to get a BFP. Typically DH is ill and isn't up to DTD and I'm fertile right now, can't help but feel annoyed at him which I know is wrong but just feel if this month is wasted it is another month off my ticking clock!

Using CB ovulation tests and have had a flashing high today and yesterday so expecting my 'peak' tomorrow so DH had better be up to the job so we can have at least a shot at a BFP this month!

Good luck to anyone else in the same boat and feel free to join me if you are also on the TTC no 3 ....

Same boat here! 38 and Ttc no.3, this is my first month really. Took two years to conceive dd2 so I'm hoping this won't be as long. Typically I will be in my fertile window when I'm away from dh for a few days envyso I will be dtd the morning I leave and the evening I get back although he doesn't know it!

I should say, I did have a cp in March, although were weren't actually ttc, this is what started the ball rolling!

Hi ladies, good luck to you all. My DH is still ill so I reckon this month is out sadly😢 Hope you get good news soon xx

Fingers crossed for you apple! Let us know how you get on. I also have an older teen, handy for helping out with babysitting wink
Newbie I hope your dh feels better soon. It's disappointing when you know you've missed an opportunity, so I'm not holding out much hope for this cycle either.

Ok so I'm feeling slightly bad, DH had bronchitis so perhaps he was ill! Needless to say I got my peak today and am depressed as this month is out as DH ain't up to much at all! Good luck to the rest of you xx

Your poor dh! You weren't to know though so don't give yourself a hard time. Concentrate on optimising your chances for next cycle smile

Hi ladies, am 37 also ttc #3 but feeling quite nervous about it - dh much more keen than I so it has taken some persuasion... Did/do you all have doubts or absolutely sure you want #3?

dairymoomoo Fri 20-May-16 20:34:51

I still have some doubts from time to time. Am I crazy to start all over again? Is it pushing my luck? Will we manage financially? So many things go through my mind. I knew I still wanted another when AF arrived and I felt really disappointed. On my first proper cycle ttc now but I was away for my fertile window so probably be disappointed again X

Hello everyone! Not sure if anyone is still reading this but if you are hello and hope you got your BFP's! Well we decided not to go for no 3 but then last night decided to give it a go so I'm now on the 2 ww. Figure if it's meant to be it will be and if it doesn't happen we still have 2 beautiful boys.
