TTC after 35
Options

Hello

I've posted a few times on the TTCAL board but I've been reading here too.  I've read a few posts here that really hit a chord with me so I thought I'd see if I could join the gang here.

A little intro - I'm 39 and my husband and I will be married 5 years this Aug.  We started trying late last year when everything was "perfect".  I'm sure most reading know how that goes!  We just bought a house, he's settled in a new career that would enable me to give mine up (at least for a few years).  I got pregnant quick and then miscarried at about 7 weeks.  Due to my elderly status lol I was referred right to a RE.  He ordered a lot of blood tests and while waiting for the right time for the HSG I got pregnant again.  And lost it right away.   I really lost all hope and assumed that every test we did would just eventually prove that I would never have a child.  I was pretty down really on edge.  My dr. saw what he believed to be endometriosis on the xray and I had the surgery done a few days ago.  Much to my surprise - it was bad enough that he believes that to have been the cause.  I'm happy and stunned and I think we may still be "in the game".

I read a post here last week from someone who was asking when enough would be enough.  She said that she had really become too focused on what she didn't have - I really feel the same way.  I was doped up the other day watching "Bride Wars" and I kept thinking of that post.  5 years ago I married my Prince Charming and I've just been so mired in what I'm missing that I lost sight of what I have.  So I'm really glad I'm able to see and hear what other people are going through.  It helps.  And today I read another post about how tiring it is TTC.  It is.  It sort of swallows you whole.  I have some time off to recover physically, but I'm really going to try and get my head together as well.  Admit that I've been through a tough time and spend some time just thinking.

So if there's room for one more here I'd be happy to pop in and share some of my stuff and learn what I can from you guys.  Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend!

    Welcome!  In my opinion, this is my favorite TTC-type board.  It's so nice that we are all around the same age!

    I hear exactly what you are saying, I am 39 too and I do totally feel lucky to have what I have and a baby would just add to our happiness.  I don't miss what I never really had and if it doesn't happen for us, I am at peace with it. 

    G/L to you!  Hopefully your next pg will stick!

    Thanks everyone!  I do like this board.  I think some of the others are almost too active.  I can't post from work and it seems like if you're not there every day you can't really participate.  You guys are so strong and caring - a great group!
