Intro (TW) — The Bump
TTC after 35

Intro (TW)


I have been slowly getting into the boards and thought I'd give this one a try since I am 35 and actively TTC. 

I have identical twin girls who are almost 6, and we're currently trying for #3, which would probably be our last. Its been a completely different experience doing this at 35 rather than 29.  I was able to get pregnant in December, but unfortunately had a miscarriage shortly thereafter in January. 

Right now I am back off the bench, and in the TWW so we'll see what happens!  

I have been hanging out in the TTCAL board but I look forward to chatting with you ladies as well!
