MM - Love the sentiments in your email! I think we get so carried away with focusing on making a baby during it all that we don't let the passion in! :)

I dreamed I had a beautiful baby boy last night...He was so perfect; swaddled nice and cozy in my arms. I just stared at him and it felt like the longest dream! And then...Before I knew it the dream took a twist! I was taking him to work with me and I kept forgeting he was there!! I was so panicked and rushing around looking for him... (Really??) When I finally found him, I looked down and he was a bunny. WTH?

Anyway, maybe I should buy a bunny. ;)

Happy Monday ladies!!

Hello ladies!! Just wanted to pop on and say hi to everyone!

I'm still stalking!! Waiting to see some more BFPs from my 60s and 70s ladies!

MM -- you make an EXCELLENT point. All the months of the more calculated BDing, with not a lot of foreplay etc - nothing happened. The times that I was cognizant to put more effort into it, BOOM! Pregnant. First time, chemical. 2nd time, I'm still holding . I was more aroused, my husband was more aroused, and it really made a difference.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that a lot of healthy babies are born to everyone that touches this thread. We ALL deserve it!

Well since all the good vibes are being sent around on this thread, I thought I'd get in on some of it.

Me - 38
DH - 42

TTC #1 for both.

Me - Low Reserve 0.82
DH - Low Sperm

New Rx - IVF with TESA and ICSI starting... well I dont know. Next consultation with RE on March 26th (or as soon as I can stalk out a new appt sooner).

We tried since Septmeber 2011 when my OB suggested fertility testing based on my fibroid issues. Come to find out hubby's boys werent showing up to play.

Its been an emotional year so far to say the least. I hope to end it with a baby (or two) in my arms and a huge smile on our faces. Im learning so much. And I'm glad to share what I pick up as long as you all do the same!

oh yes me too!!!! i am a 42 years young hehe just kidding. well i had my tubes tied 21 years ago and had a tubal reversal on 12/30/11 . we got the go ahead last month to try to conceive. my dr. put me on clomid last month and i did not have any side effects. that was good. well still waiting on that BFP and i am only 1 day late. but not sure if i even ovulated. that bbt charting is crazy because i usually have to go really bad in the morning (sorry if tmi) not really sure how it works. i so believe that it was so easy in our younger years and why is it so hard now. guess i am in the same boat as you and i am very frustrated right now not knowing and took 2 hpt and they are BFN !!! bbs are sore and some cramping like oh no af is coming but no on that too. i havent had the test to test to check my tubes for blockage, guess will try that in 6 mos. anyway dr. gave me another dose of clomid. if you need to talk just let me know.

and that sticky bean

btw my name is donna
