TTC after 35

Intro. and cd1 after mc (loss & living children mentioned)

Hello Ladies,
I've been lurking a little here and there trying to find the right time to introduce myself.  I may have done so previously, I just don't remember.
I am a 37 year old mother of 4 (ages 8-18).  I have suffered 5 losses total in my life; including 3 consecutive losses in the past two years.  
The last two were 4mo. apart, so while I am excited to be here, I am very nervous.

My most recent loss was a mmc at 8 weeks and I had a d&c, followed by a normal cycle last month.
I tested negative for any genetic chromosomal abnormalities...additional blood work & thyroid health all normal.

Today is cd1 of my second cycle since mmc and I began temping this morning.
I'm all equipped and ready with opk's and following a gluten-free, mostly dairy-free, alkaline diet in efforts to improve my mental and physical health.

I'm looking forward to this journey and very thankful to be here!
