Hi To All My Prayers And Thoughts Are With You

MedicGirl - May 11

This post may be a bit lengthy. I have been reading up on all of your journeys in these posts and my heart & prayers go out to all of you. I would like to join in and tell you all a little about myself. I was previously married for 2 years & we never used any type of birth control, nor did we chart my OD. Now I am married to someone that was in the same boat as I with his ex-wife. They never got pregnant. Together now we have never used prevention either and have never gotten pregnant. Now we have began to use the O tests. My last period began on April 27th. I tested positive for ovulating on May the 8th...and today the 10th I did another and still am positive. Since the 8th we have been bding daily in attempts. I am really worried since we both have been married before and had no 'accidental' success and since we, together have never used any type of birth control that we will have problems conceiving. I am 25 y/o and he is 35. So we know that if we want to start a family that we better get seriously cracking on this before our chances decrease with age (not that it still wouldn't be possible). We had talked about this since we first got together and he always said he thought he couldn't have children. He said it with such disappointment. Now since we have enforced a game plan he sounds so much more positive about it (of course he maybe just be trying to make me think he is...I don't know). He even says "Goodbye Momma" befores he leaves for work everyday. I know how much this means to both of us and I think it would be the greatest gift to wrap a pair of booties on Father's Day and give them to him if we are successful....I don't want to get my hopes up but I pray that I would be able to do that. I hope you all do not mind if I join you in this hopeful and yet at times frustrating at journey. I think this is a great thing to be able to talk with others that are TTC. Thank you! I feel much better for being able to post this. Y'all just bear with me....I am still trying to learn some of the abbreviations:-)

Welcome aboard MedicGirl, firstly I can relate to the frustrations you must be having in ttc. My husband and I have been trying now for 10 months without success. This is just my opinion but the fact that you both had failed relationships because of failure to get pregnant in these separate relationships may add far to much stress in your lives, neither of you are old, you 25 and he 35, by no means is this old. Women's fertility begins to decrease at age 35 and men can keep producing swimmers up until almost forever. Look at Larry King, the man is 200 years old and had a baby a couple of years ago. Anyway, please you should both just relax and enjoy the process, be very open with each other about your feelings of frustration, but know that it is neither partners fault unless of course a Dr. has advised you differently. I wish you so much success and luck, be patient, you will be holding your little miricle before you know it!!! Throwin LOADS of baby dust your way!!!

Thanks Chriss...I am more excited about it now than frustrated. Although the thoughts about failed experiences in the past intimidates me. My hubby was so doubtful for the longest time that I did not want to completely discourage him by telling him my fears. All that has been said is "We WILL be successful, and if not successful on our own, then a DR's help is always welcomed." I appreciate your kind response. I do wish you the best in ttc. It is great to be able to finally talk about this with women that are in the same babyboat. Again my prayers are with you.....and they saying is "Baby Dust to You" right? LOL.....Thanks for the encouraging words Chriss.
