TTC after 35

New with a question

Hi, this is my first time to read this board, and it looks very helpful!  We are just starting to TTC.  I am wondering if anyone has used and had any luck tracking their ovulation with those saliva microscope things.  Any input is appreciated!  Sorry if this question has already been asked -- I don't know what any of the abbreviations (other than TTC) mean on this board, so I don't know if it's been asked or not.... Also, does anyone use Pre-seed?   TIA! 

Edit:  I just found the glossary.... :)  I will post my question on the GP board as well.

    I haven't used the microscope so I can't help you with that, but I used pre-seed once.  It seemed pretty messy for me, so I didn't try more.

    BTW--welcome and hope your stay will be short!

    Haven't used the saliva monitor, but I wanted to say welcome. I use the CBEFM (clear blue easy fertility monitor) and liked it at first, but lately it hasn't been all that helpful.

    Also, make sure you lurk quite a bit before posting on GP. Great board, but I wouldn't recommend posting until you get a feel for the personalities there.

    We have used Pre Seed.  My husband is 6'3", so this works good for us.

    I'm sorry but what does being 6'3" have to do with Preseed?

    I am 5'5".  He is bigger (this will go to his ego).  I love my husband.  Pre seed just makes it easier for us to TTC (it is like a lubricant).

    Welcome.  I have no experience with the microscope thing, but do use the CBEFM.  I too have used pre-seed and agree that it's a little messy, but it is a nice lubricant.

    FWIW, a friend of mine who was TTC +35 used the saliva microscope thing and it helped her get pregnant with both her girls, now 1 and 4yrs old.
