TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.


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:
describe your style.

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+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

Wow making turkeys seems so unreal!!
I need to be removed from graduates and put back into NTNP for now until we decide what we are doing.

Jaime - please honey find yourself a project that keeps your mind occupied. If you aren't having any bleeding, cramping, or pain things are going well. You are pregnant momma and until you see a reason that isn't true just embrace it! I do know it is hard not to worry but it won't add anything to your days. I think a lot of times mommas just know in their heart but after a mc we are rewired for doom. Sending prayers of peace and joy for you.

Puppydog - boo for cd1. I hope your appt helps you to get some answers.

Hello all you TTCers in whatever part of your cycle you are in.

AFM - went in for the second beta and should find out in another hour or so. I also had blood taken to test antibodies ( 2 different types) Thyroid, TSH (does that sound right) and a couple other things. By next week I should have the answer to that. They haven't said anything about

Re: TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

sorry dd2 bumped the keyboard!


so they didn't say anything about continuing betas if this one is lower. So do I get some tests and just keep testing out the hcg? Never had to do that before but this one progressed a bit further than my others. DH and I have talked about taking a cycle off and doing some things to try and boost egg quality and get my body in shape with some yoga before we let the possibility of conceiving happen again. I actually feel ready to go but I think that is the stubborness in me. I hate failing and have a tendency to pursue things until I succeed. This may be interesting!!

Thanks. I'm going to just relax and enjoy my weekend with my SO and kid free. I'm going to take my prometrium and recheck things next week. I can't do anything to stop it if it's inevitable and i'm not ruining this weekend with my love.

GL Tori- After 4 in a row all back to back I would want to take a little break too.. as well and maybe get some answers or see how the blood work came back. There is a lot of info on boosting egg quality out there, DHEA, CoQ10, and a bunch of other supplements. Also you may want to get the CD3 blood work done to check FSH and the all the other things they test for "fertility"
I know as we get closer to the big "M" our egg quality goes down. I have a slightly elevated fsh and it is always lingering in the back of my mind as to why i had my losses but my dr also told me as long as a woman gets a period every month and they are 27-36 days in between then you're are most likely ovulating. So I had to just leave it up to God as I was not going down a medicated road (clomid,injections etc...) we have been blessed with 2 healthy children and always said that if that was what we were meant to have then so be it. Love up your 5 blessings and that little cutie in your avatar and I truly believe if you are supposed to welcome more into the world it will happen. Wish I was there to give you a real hug.

AFM - I still can't get myself over on a DD board, but I stalk it and am counting down the days till my first appointment 3/13... I am tired and have been napping which is not something i do normally and have some serious sore boobs but other than that feel good.
