TTC after 35

Introduction

Hello! Just wanted to introduce myself. I am not new to the boards, however I haven’t been on since 2010! So I am definitely new to TTC after 35. 

I’m 35 (will be 36 next month) and my DH is 37 (38 in July). This is our first official month of TTC. We do have 2 children already, a 10 year old and a 7 year old. We were obviously much younger when we conceived the first two so we aren’t sure if we are going to have any difficulties this time. We are just about in our 2WW. We used an OPK this month, this is my second day of ovulating according to the OPK so we will see mid-May if it worked.

I am excited to be be back on the boards! I look forward to chatting with you.
