I'd like to ask a few question so I can get to know you all better and you me. I'll start. Here are the questions. I answered below.

1. What is your age?

2. Do you have children already?

3. If so how long since your last pregnancy?

4. How long have you been TTC?

5. Are you dealing with fertility issues also? And if so what are they?

My answers are below this.

1. What is your age? I am 40 but will be 41 in February.

2. Do you have children already? I have three children and two step children who live with me.

3. If so how long since your last pregnancy? 13 years (ouch)

4. How long have you been TTC? 9 months

5. Are you dealing with fertility issues also? And if so what are they? I have endo and one damaged fallopian tube. I had surgery 4 months ago to have the endo removed and reopen the one (hopefully) good fallopian tube.

I don't really care if it is a boy or a girl. A healthy baby is all I'm looking for. We've had to wait for a long time to TTC, so I'm not at all picky!

hi hun . iv no insurance as in uk we get nhs free treatment but at my age with 5 kids already they wont add me to the waiting list as im to old !!! so only thing we can do is go private and save the money already spent around 500 on other tests and scan ,the hsg is 350 so now saving for that may take a while lol ,

1. What is your age? 37

2. Do you have children already? Yes 1

3. If so how long since your last pregnancy? 20 months

4. How long have you been TTC? 1 year this time. 2 years the first tme around

5. Are you dealing with fertility issues also? Unexplained infertility. Had to eventually do IVF to have my son although they could never give me the reason why I needed to do it. So frustrating! Now we are willing to go as far as clomid. If that doesn't work it will be the three of us. I can't spend Sawyer's college money to have another baby. Ok, maybe I would but DH will talk me out of it.

Good luck with your Dr's appointment Laura! Keep us posted.

Right now I am doing acupressure on myself but next cycle I will restart acupuncture. I tried it 4 years ago when I was TTC with no luck but I like it so I'm going to give it another try. Good luck to you. I think it works for lots of people and worst case it is very relaxing.

kayakr I hope you get a BFP soon! I can only imagine the trials and tribulations you've been through with this. I wouldn't wish infertility on my worst enemy. I've struggled with it since my first child.I feel blessed to have the children I have. And sometimes guilty for wanting this one but I can't help it.

Lauren, sounds like you got it going on! I hope it works!!
