I have been trying to decide for some time if I wanted to post or not. I was here when the TTC Older moms first started in July 2006. Then I got pregnant with my daughter.

I am Denise 41 and my husband Rick is 43. We have 6 children ages 20, 17, 13, 9 (almost 10), 4 and 1.My oldest just got married Aug 8 so we now have a son-in-law as well. We just celebrated 22 years of marriage. To make a long story short we do not use b/c. We have always left it in God's hands. We have struggled a lot with fertility over the 22 years of marriage.

I have started to take my temps again. Mostly because I want to know what my cycle is doing. I really like knowning when AF is coming. But also part of me wonders if I still ovulate much. I have been thinking a lot about if I want another one. I love being pregnant and have always had very easily pregnacy and deliveries. Just getting pregnant is the hard part. I have this feeling that there will be one more baby for us. It is like the door isn't closed yet. Does that make sense. Sometimes I worry about my age but then there are alot of time I have to remind myself I am 41 because I do not feel it at all. I still feel healthy and young.

Well if you don't mind I am going to hang out for awhile.

Hello & Denise! I'm Becky (34), DH is Tony (also 34). We've been TTC #1 since January. I co-host this board along with Jessica. We always love having more people post with us, so feel free to hang out with us! We're a small group that seems to be getting bigger everyday. Your family sounds lovely, and I assume those are pictures of your children in your siggy. They are so cute!! Also, I have to notice Rebekah's name. That is how I spell Rebekah too, and it's so unusual to find others who spell it that way.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

What a great family, I love the pictures. Welcome, the ladies are the best!
Hi, my name is Mary and my DH is Andy and we are a Christian family of 9 living on a farm. We enjoy growing and raising our own food. We have a huge garden in the summer for vegetables and raise our own animals for meat. We homeschool our children, use cloth diapers, and eat as healthy as possible. God has planned the births of our children and we love having a big family!

God has blessed us with:
Daisy (9), Veronica (7), Charlie (4), Sally (3), Mark (2), Travis (15 months), Nathan (5 months)
