TTC after 35

One month countdown...

...till my 40th that is hard to type.

I was never one to cringe at big birthdays...30 and 35 were really no big deal and am very happy with where I am in life but feel that there are some things on my "bucket" list that I need to get going on!

Besides having a child, what is something on your list you hope to accomplish by your next BIG birthday?

Mine...learn to fly an airplane, which is in the works for this summer!

Happy weekend all!

Re: One month countdown...

  • isn't 40 the new 30?   Big Smile  Well...that's what I'm telling myself too.  I'll be 39 this fall.

    Learning to fly...that sounds cool!  Good luck and I hope you get to check it off your bucket list.

    I don't necessarily have anything that is on my list to accomplish by my next birthday...but next year - when a handful of my friends and I turn 40 - we are all going to fly somewhere tropical and have a grand time.  Oh, and we've decided to all go tandem jumping (parachuting)...out of an airplane!

    Wow - flying a plane.  I seriously need to get my goals in order.  I am such a slacker!! LOL!  I turned 38 this year so I have a little under 2 years until the "Big 40".  I don't really have too much on my list - everything I would want to do, is travel related, and I would need to put that on hold because I have to pay for all these darned meds and IVF OOP!!
    TTC since 3/07. IVF#1 = canceled. IVF#2 = 0% fertilization. IVF#3 = BFN. IVF#4 = c/p.  
    Moving forward with Adoption 2017!

    I'm right there with you - I'll be 40 in August.  I had the nicest chat with my RE about it (not TTC related, we were just chatting) and I was saying how it wouldn't bother me at all if I weren't trying to have a baby and felt that clock ticking. 

    My 30s have been amazing and I've done most of the things I wanted to - I've traveled lots of the world, had some career success, recovered from a terrible divorce (at 29) and met and married the man of my dreams.  If my 40s are half as good I'll be a lucky woman.

  • I'll be 40 in August too.  I just got married five weeks ago, so other than hoping for a bfp, I feel like they were/are the two biggest items on my bucket list right now.  

    The other goal I had was to get down to my college weight before the wedding and I pretty much reached that -- also figured it would be good to lose a few pounds before TTC, so I'm proud of myself for losing about 25 pounds over the past couple of years.  

    I suppose with only a few months left, I've been able to accomplish most of what I'd hoped to by my next birthday.  If I get a bfp for a(n early) birthday present, that'll be icing on the cake!

    Great question!
