TTC after 35

Looking for a new buddy or two that are over 40....

I am looking for a couple buddies to connect with that are over 40 on this crazy, emotional, exciting journey. I am 42 and DH is 41. We started TTC#1 (and likely only) when we got married in June but did nothing but have more sex until last month when I used on OPK. This month I started temping and am using a fertility monitor. I love these boards but find that most people on here are younger and don't necessarily understand the pressures and risks of being over 40 and TTC.

  • Hi! I'll be your buddy. I'm 40 and trying to conceive #2. :) there is a "fabulous 40s" check in most weeks, so that's a good place to connect too.
  • Well thanks and good luck trying to conceive #2. I will check out the "fabulous 40's" as well. Thanks for the suggestion.

  • 41 here! I'd love to join the buddy circle! TTC #4. I just posted a huge rant over in the TWW post pretty partly talking about TTC at 41, etc. It's been a heck of a few months. Anyways, Welcome!
  • Thanks for joining. I will check out your huge rant and thanks for the welcome. I am hoping to not stay here for long but who the hell knows how long it will be.

  • Welcome and best of luck to you. I'm 41. There are more obstacles once you hit 40, as related to TTC, so I think it's helpful to have others to bond with. 
    Hope you are out of here soon
