• Aszmika: I will definitely look into that. You say DH can do it too? Mom2four: I will also look into probiotics. I wondered if yeast could effect fertility, but had read nothing to say it can.

  • Misty: I also m/c last pregnancy back in March. It is sad to see newborn babies now, realizing that mine would be in my arms right now.

  • Aloha: that sounds awful. The main thing is to make sure you get feeling 100% before you ttc. I know a month thrown away after the 3 mth wait can be difficult, so hopefully you will be better ASAP!

  • Mom2four: no, I don’t take them. Strange thing is that I had a period of yeast infections when I was 19-20 years old, then I went a couple of decades without any. I started with one at the beginning of the last pregnancy (which I m/c), and have had several since. DH has trouble with yeast. He is diabetic and so I ‘blame’ it on him, but what are…[Read more]

  • Mom2four: I didn’t know you had multiple losses. Sorry to hear that. I have had 2 m/c. It is sad.

  • Mom2four: I don’t know if I ever answered your question before, but I never test before af is late. Even then, I have wasted a test to find af knocking at the door just hours after a bfn, lol. I lost track of which day I am on because I had to get a new iPhone and the rep didn’t move my calendar over to my new one. Luckily I haven’t mailed the…[Read more]

  • Okay gals, I know we’ve probably discussed this before, but I need a refresher now that we have been on here together awhile. Anyway, I’m curious as to the ages of your DH’s. Mine is 53. His oldest child is 32 and our baby is most 2. Between the two of us we have 11 kids. I will be 45 in December, so I don’t have long to ttc before then. Is there…[Read more]

  • Af arrived promptly at noon. CD 1 for me. Maybe I will have to get more focused this month. Or perhaps I should wean, since bf probably doesn’t help matters. Mary’s 2nd birthday is about a week away, so she should be fine.

  • Aloha: I think it is awesome that you are trying and I can hardly wait to hear you say you have a bfp again, only this time one that thrives and brings you and your DH a cute little addition!

  • Misty: congrats on babies heartbeat! Since my 1st m/c, I am too afraid of the early weeks and months…worried about not having a heartbeat. With each loss, I think a part of me dies. I almost gave up after the last one, but life is what I make of it, so I will keep living, loving, and trying.

  • Misty: thanks, you are so considerate of others. I know we have never met, but I really like the ladies in this advanced age group. I agree, we need to have steady bfps. It is ironic that it is not even a ‘ttc’ group, bit it has almost become that. I am sorry to hear about your depression. Don’t stop nursing your son, that helps with moods. I have…[Read more]

  • Misty: wow, 10 weeks went quickly! Are you still bf? I wish you luck on the 15th. Thanks for the vibes.im just not very optimistic. My 45th birthday is Dec. 13th, so I should hurry up. Lol. I felt so old on Halloween. I went to my 10 yr old’s party at school and a woman (a mom of a 5th grader) came up and asked my name (get this!) because HER MOM…[Read more]

  • I just caught up on all the updates. Mom2four: sorry this month didn’t pan out for you. I am still waiting. I think af is knocking at my door. I am treating yeast still. Argh! I forgot / fell asleep for 3 different nights during the week and so I have one more left after tonight. The itching is stronger now than the first day I treated!

  • Mom2four: I had talked him into waiting until we gave birth to a healthy baby (after the true surprise #2 was on the way) before having his vasectomy redone. Well, then he got busy and never went back, so I conceived my DD without communication. I figured it was my right as a wife. Why should his wants trump mine, anyway? I know that it wasn’t…[Read more]

  • Aloha: what a cool story. A modern-day wet nurse! So you must have a special bond with that kid! I understand completely. Too bad we can’t choose to have twins without invitro or something like that. Have you ever considered that? Then if you had twins, you’d be all set and wouldn’t have to stop nursing. I don’t even know what all that would…[Read more]

  • Aloha: when you said that about stopping bf to give a chance to conceive and have pregnancy stick….you struck a chord with me. When I lost the last one, I had read a little that went against bf when pregnant, but most said there is no concern, including my doctor. However, it does make me wonder. Yes, there are a lot of women who Bf throughout…[Read more]

  • Misty: hang in there! I’m not sure why you say you are an emotional wreck, but keep your eyes on the prize! Now I’m wondering if I had it messed up…I know one of you gals told me that you deal with some anxiety/depression but I don’t recall if it was you or mom2four. I suffer in silence, mostly, and do not seek help or meds. The pregnancies and…[Read more]

  • Mom2four: what a cool story! I typed the link in on my desktop and read it. Also, beautiful pictures! Gosh, after my 3rd was born, I was slated to have my tubes tied (because HE didn’t want anymore kids) against my wishes. I was only going to do it because I felt it was expected of me. However, after delivering my DD, the nurse came in to answer…[Read more]

  • Aszmika: quite a story yourself! How long have you been trying this time? I’m in Michigan. Are you still here? I know the state is huge, and it can take 10 hours from one end to the other. I am near the capital. I’d really like to go to Florida…have for years. Now my in laws are there, so it would be nice. We have so much to remodel on this old…[Read more]

  • So things didn’t work with that husband because he was interested in young teens and I left with the kids and started over. I finished up my teaching degree and then married again. I had my 4th, but couldn’t seem to conceive again. He was abusive and I needed to protect my kids, so that ended in divorce. Our only child we had together was 4 and on…[Read more]
