Intro *TW: child mentioned* — The Bump
TTC after 35

Intro *TW: child mentioned*


I'll be 36 August 18 and DH will be 44 August 26. I know I barely qualify here, but the volume over at ttc is overwhelming, plus if you average DH and I, then I don't seem so young.

We have 1 child born 6/20/17. Her name is Juniper, but we usually just call her June. If you think it's a little early for me to be here, that's okay, so do I. But I valued my bmb so much last time and I wouldn't want to miss out on getting to know you ladies, especially if I end up here for a while.

Technically I am on CD 21 of my first pp cycle. I previously had 34 day cycles, so, theoretically I am 1 day into the tww. I doubt I would be so lucky to do this in one shot, but if I am, then it is my sincerest hope that my luck is contagious for everyone. :)
