Intro — The Bump
TTC after 35

Intro

Thought since I started replying to posts, I should do an intro. I?ve been married 7 years and we started TTC about a year and half ago, when I was 34.5, in hopes I?d be done before being flagged as an ?old? mom of 36. Well, that?s not happening - 36 is right around the corner!

Admittedly, we didn?t take TTC that serious at the start, as we weren't really in a rush to start a family, being happy and active with outdoor sports and travel. Even so, my clock is ticking and the holidays last year were pretty rough for me? I had fully expected we?d at least be announcing a pregnancy by then. My mom?s clock is ticking even faster? she really wants a grandbaby already!

But this year has been a fresh start. We just returned from a fun week in Costa Rica, which has me, momentarily, back to feeling footloose and happily child-free. J  

And, I?m much more educated now, getting more serious about charting, temping and using OPK. Much of that as a result of lurking and learning from this board J

  • Thanks for the well wishes and suggestions

    And if you're thinking about Costa Rica - go! Lots to do and an easy country to travel in. Seems to be kid-friendly too, if the many spring-breaking families we saw were any indication.
