@daisychain: I'm 34 (35 is right around the corner) and lost my first pregnancy to miscarriage back in 10/11 - so I've been in your situation, or one very similar, too. It is so hard. I'm now 16 weeks 1 day pregnant and doing pretty well - but it's terrifying after losing one! This is the best place for you to be if you're needing some community, you'll get lots of amazing support and advice. The wonderful women in these Nameberry forums have truly helped me hold on to my sanity during all of these ups and downs. I'm so sorry you're facing this crap too and I hope you get your BFP soon! (BFP = big fat positive (pregnancy test) )Christine
Pregnancy #1: lost to mc, 10/11
Amelia Joelle arrived on 11/28/13 at 7 pounds, 4 ounces of pure beauty. Couldn't be happier to finally be mommy!

hi everyone, big big congrats on the bfp @misses h and sending good thoughts (and fireworks haha) out to everyone for july!
welcome @daisychain: i'm 35 as well, so it seems you've got a few on this thread who are in the same boat when it comes to age. i feel you!
AF just arrived for me today, which is more of a relief than anything, to be honest, because after my complete string of negative OPK's this month with the wondfo strips, and zero pms symptoms going on...i was worried AF would be MIA for awhile. but here she is. oh, please let her be here because i ovulated normally and not because my body is just dang confused.
still trying to decide how to approach this next cycle - completely relax and back off nit-picky ttc stuff (like testing for ovulation etc.), or try different types of opk's, or talk to my doc...
like @sarah said, i know its normal for it to take awhile...it just feels like people around me right left and centre are just suddenly getting pregnant on their first try and it makes me feel like something is wrong with me.
well, as @alzora said - there are lots of amazing women on this thread. thanks as always to all of them for providing me an outlet for my frustrations because.....as wonderful as my husband is, i have discovered over the last few months that he is not quite as concerned and sensitive to my feelings on all this as i would ideally like. have to remind myself to ask for what i need from him, rather than wait for him to figure it out by my excessive pouting. always a good thing to remember in relationships haha

Thanks so much, guys! I've been reading your thread for a little bit and it felt like a community I'd like to join.
My story... My husband and I have been trying since around August, when I finally convinced him this was a project we should engage in. We've been together for well over a decade (he's 41 and I'm 35) but only got married four years ago. I feel like it just takes us (or really him) a long time to realize that these conventional things people do like get married and have children are conventional because they are wonderful and make you happy, not because they're lame or something.
Anyway, we started trying in August, but I have to travel an insane amount for work, so we were rarely together at the right time. I got pregnant in April, still traveling a great deal. In fact, so much so that I didn't see an OBGYN, in fact I didn't have one, only my general practitioner. My schedule for the summer is more sane, so I found and OBGYN and set up an appointment for two weeks ago. But I started bleeding the night before, so the appointment turned into how to deal with my miscarriage at almost 10 weeks. I won't go into the details, but it was a protracted set of procedures--heartbreaking, painful and gross. That all ended a week ago.
The doctor thought the miscarriage was just the typical situation where something's not quite right genetically with the baby--which is apparently incredibly common. But then it turned our I also had odd bloodwork results and need to see a specialist or two...am waiting on those appointments. Which makes me feel horrible because maybe there was something I needed to take care of before getting pregnant...
Not to write an epic here. That's a bit of my story. I guess I'm not actually TTC right at the moment, as I'm waiting the requisite month post miscarriage and waiting to get dome results back that tell me whether I can/should even try.
I really never thought it would be this hard! Even though I'm a major pessimist.
I hope you're all doing well and have success in what really should be a fun and joyful process!
Looking forward to joining the conversation (and not hogging it so much).

@daisychain - Welcome to our thread! I've found this group to be a great support while TTC. We're all going through the same thing and can empathise with each other. Don't feel badly about venting if you feel frustrated or upset.TTC #1
