TTC #:2

TTC start date: January 2009 (for our second child)

Biggest "worry" about being over 30 and TTCing: I really don't have any worries about being over 30 because our son was born after 3 months of trying. It was the one month we decided we'd just "not try". It worked!! So we're hoping this time goes just as well. I think we may already be pg, but I can't test quite yet. So we'll see.

Advice to other over 30 TTCers: Get as healthy as possible before conceiving. And, if it works this cycle, I'd say go out and buy a fertility monitor and some pre-seed!

Titi:

The link is to post the link to your BBT chart...most people I know, use the Fertility Friend site (www.fertilityfriend.com) to keep track of their waking temps (BBT), CM, BD habits, etc. that helps them keep track of when their ovulating and shows a pattern (if done long enough) to help in conception or not conceiving if using FAM.

Biggest "worry" about being over 30 and TTCing: Some of my closest friends are getting pregnant with their second and we might want to have a 3rd but age seems to keep creepin' up everyday!

Advice to other over 30 TTCers: Don't do what I do--let it control your thoughts and energy everyday.

TTC #: 1

TTC start date: now!
Link to chart: None

Biggest "worry" about being over 30 and TTCing: i always said i wasn't going to have children even though i am really good with them and know i would make a good mom. now that my friend is going through her first pregnancy all of the silly reasons WHY i wasn't going to seem... well... silly. apart from the normal fears of not being healthy enough etc... i am just concerned it will be extra hard for me to change my ways since i am so much older then most of the parents i know.

Advice to other over 30 TTCers: i don't have any yet- but if i have any thoughts i think will help i promise i'll share!

Any history, diagnosis, or information about TTCing you would like to share: i have been on birth control for a lot of my life. i started at 18 and was on non stop til i was 27. i stopped until i was 33 but started again a year and a few months ago. i just finished my last pack a few weeks ago and am hoping that i am one of the lucky ones whose bodies go back into their cycle easily.

Biggest "worry" about being over 30 and TTCing: that it just won't happen, or that it'll take a very long time and I'll lose my sanity before then

Advice to other over 30 TTCers: I'm the one who needs advice. I obsess about TTC and I'm naturally a negative person, so that's a bad combo.

Any history, diagnosis, or information about TTCing you would like to share: stopped the BCP in Feb. 2009 after 16 yrs on it
