TTC after 35

We start TTC next month!

We finally get to start TTC next month!!  I am so excited to actually start the process.  My DH is under the wrong impression that he will get me pregnant the first month and I have told him time and time again it could take up to a year to concieve so I would like to start now.  I finally sat him down and we talked and agreed to start in November.  Anyway we are now waiting for my period to start it is a few days late which I think is due to my new workout routine (losing the weight & feeling better about me!) and stress from my job.  My Dad also had bypass surgery this month so I had stress from that as well which might have caused me to 'O' late.  I really can't wait for my period to come so we can start a fresh new cycle and get TTC going!! I have had some dry CM issues and hear taking Mucinex or Robitusson with guaifenesin as the main active ingredient & Evening primrose oil up to your 'O' date helps with that, so I will give it a try this cycle.

  • Hooray and good luck!!!

  • Yeah, good luck, maybe it will happen quick for you. Try drinking green tea before O, it helps me and a lot of others on the boards to get more EWCM. Also, don't go crazy on exercise, especially after O, just in case a fertilized egg is trying to implant, you never know!

  • Thank you everyone for your advice on green tea.  I will have to make sure to pick up a box of it.  I had cramping last night but still no period.  This will be a 37-day and counting cycle-my longest yet.  I have always been around 30 days so if nothing by next week I might want to head on over to the doctor and see what is going on.  I would like my thyroid checked out to make sure that is okay. We do have infertility issues in my family so I will be lucky if we get pregnant by next Fall but it would be so nice if we can get pregnant by next Summer! 

    I was telling DH it is like my period knows that I am trying to get rid of it and wants to prolong this cycle. LOL  I have some cramping this morning and bloated feeling so hopefully I will see it sometime today or tomorrow. I am so proud of myself with my weight I was able to get into a top that I have not been able to get into for a long time.  Thanks again for all the awesome advice!  Smile

  • It's funny how the minute you decide to TTC your body starts acting funny. Wait til you get all the phantom pregnancy symptoms during the 2ww. Those are the best! (not).

    Good luck!

  • NewMrs07:  I know what you mean we avoid for years and the minute we want to concieve our bodies act up on us and start behaving weirdly.  I have always been regular as a clock and than all of sudden we decide to start trying and now this irregularity.  What I hate the most is I have all the symptoms of a period (cramping & bloating) but no actual period.  I am negative on the HPT as well.  I called my doctor today and he wants me to come in tomorrow morning.  He would like to do some tests to just make sure that all my hormones are working good and my thyroid is not acting up.  I know my period will show up tomorrow morning now that I made the doctor's appointment (isn't that how it always is) but I want to talk him with anyway.  Ovarian cysts are rampant on my mother's side so I want to get a clean bill of health before we start trying.  I was good in June when I went for my gyno exam but I may want to get checked out again. 

    Thank you for letting me know about the excercise tip I will be sure to switch to low-impact after I ovulate.
