So yesterday was my bday, and it was pretty hard on me. I turned the "dreaded" 35, and although I know many people (hopefully including me!) have successful, healthy babies well into their 40s, it's still that age that too often is referred to, and it's a tough age to be without having had my 1st yet. So I was bummed out yesterday... today still am a little, but doing research and going to try to make healthy changes and get on the ROyal Jelly bandwagon and see where it leads me.

My plan is to go to an RE in Dec. if we haven't conceived by then because it will have been 6 months since our m/c at that point.

Anyhow... that's my sob story. Going to focus on staying positive and enjoying the ride.

Welcome to that difficult boat. You are not alone. I jumped into the 35 boat last December... 5 days after I lost my son. Rough birthdays suck. I'm so hoping that the royal jelly works for you. I hope your week gets better.

Oh man I'm not there yet, so I can't say I completely understand but I feel for you!

Hang in there, 35 really isn't old! I think they should change the high risk age to 40!

I may not be 35 but I can tell you I know what it's like to feel like time is running out. My doctor said with Endo the longer you wait the less chance you have... Stay positive dear! I pray you get that sticky BFP before you have to make an RE appt

Big hugs to you! and happy birthday to you- I know it's a rough/bittersweet day, but it's still an amazing blessing to have you in the world

Did you see that article in The Atlantic about age and fertility? It was such a surprise to me that the statistic about over 35 having fertility drops is based on French census records from the 1700s, when health care was nonexistent and life expectancy. The few modern studies are much, much more encouraging.

I'm so sorry that this is a tough birthday for you.

I have no doubt that you will have a happy, healthy baby, though.

THanks everyone Doing better today. Taking charge even more! I went to the Vitamin Shoppe, and they had the same brand of royal jelly that I just ordered.. so I bought it (even though it's on it's way... I figure we'll use it since my husband is going to take it too).

I also picked up some red raspberry leaf tea, and am having a cup of that as we speak!

I love that article, Mel.. I look back to it every now and then to feel better. Everyone on here should read that article!
