It S Too Bad Those TTC Over 35 Do Not Have Their Own Forum

I may get flack for this, and I don't mean to be insensitive by any means. This board seems to have been taken over predominantly by those over 35 "Trying to Conceive". I wish you all the best in trying to conceive..but truly the name of this forum is "Pregnant Over 35". I have come here on occasion to try and get advice on pregnancy but the only posts seem to be from those TTC. It would be nice if could open a (NEW) heading for those trying to conceive...the same way they have first trimester,complications,loss, teen pregnancy, etc.. For the same reason I try not to go to teen pregnancy because I am indeed over 35. On the other hand there does not seem to be a place for those TTC over 35 to go, so I do not blame them for coming to the pregnant Over 35 forum. That is all, and I hope I did not offend any of you because I too was once TTC.

I am not offended. I am 41 an TTC, but I can see your point.

Hi Guest, I don't think you're being insensitive. I see your point too, but on the flip side if I were over 35 I would prefer not to be having discussions with teens and 20 somethings so this is the forum that I would choose if I were TTC and over 35. As you know, there are increased risks and different set of issues that go along with trying to conceive at an age over 35 that no one else can relate to unless they are also 35 and over. If you feel so strongly that there should be a separate forum for those over 35 and trying to conceive, may I suggest that you address your concern with by clicking on the "contact us" link at the very bottom of the screen. Your email message will go directly to the editor. Maybe they will add a new link but in the meantime, this is the only forum for over 35 groups and women who are over 35 and trying to conceive should feel welcome here.

There is also the forum "Problems getting pregnant". It is for woman that are TTC and who are not yet become pregnant...however it is not specifically for those over 35...If I was TTC I would probably go to another board while trying.. but that's I see Guest's point and she was sypathetic to the idea the those "TTC over 35" do not really have anywhere to post. Pregnant Over what it is, for woman who are "pregnant" and over 35..that is why they have the different forum headings. Again, we are all ent_tled to post wherever we want, but some repet_tive posts on certain topics would ideally be suited under the forums where they are most likely to get the best response. That is why when someone posted about abortion it was not welcomed by many here either. I come here to read about other's during pregnancy..however TTC is the first step towards becoming pregnant and wanting to be pregnant and being surrounded by pregnant posts may give some the support they need to indeed get pregnant. I clearly understand both points of view.. :)
