Name/ SO: Alyssa, Evan

Any kids you have already: Zero, we are ttc #1

How long have you been TTC?: 19 Months

What kinds of things are you doing to help TTC along?: Let's see, what have we not tried in the all natural department. I have tried OPK's (3 times), Temping (about half of the time), herbs for DH, relaxing and trying to forget that we are ttc, pineapple core, mucinex (for DH and me), this next month, I am going to try all of those, and add in Geritol tonic and Lemon water (for Detox), and we are going to go see a Fertility Doctor in our area.

A simple thing that makes you happy: Watching a movie while crocheting. For an hour or two, I can forget the whole world, and all that is going on. And going target shooting, when the weather cooperates.

The MOST annoying comment/suggestion people make to you about TTC: I had a break down just before Christmas and told my dad that DH and I probably can't have kids, that it will be very difficult for us to. (No one in my family knows that we have been ttc for so long). My dad's first comment was "Is it DH? Is there something wrong with him?" I wanted to scream. No, there is nothing wrong with either of us, it is just one of those frustrating explainable fertility issues.

Oh no! What a horrible horrible thing!! What would possess someone to say something like that? I'm so sorry!

A simple thing that makes you happy: Reading

The MOST annoying comment/suggestion people make to you about TTC: That we are too old (I am 41 and DH is 45 (will be 46 in Feb). I have also been told I was crazy for wanting to have a baby! I really really really want to have a baby with DH. I think everyone who wants a biological child of their own has that right. He and is his first wife had 4 m/c's and that really devastated him and the older he gets the more he wants to have a child! I am just hoping and praying that we get our baby!!!

I think it's fantastic!! What an obnoxious thing to say that you are too old! You are in your early forties. Lots of women do it then! And my DH is 46 too. He and his ex could also never have children, and I want this with and for him so much I can't even say.

Tons of luck to you hun!!

Your DH sounds like a keeper!

My mom says things indirectly, but my mother-in-law who has no clue that we've been trying so long and are having difficulties will lay it on thick just like that.

You are in my prayers Sarah
