Hello ladies...

I am a mom of 8 but my baby is 12 and I am in love and we've been together going on 2 years and he said to me that he really wants to have a baby with me... he has 7 of his own but this time he know he wants one, he said prior to that they just got pregnant and went with the flow of things... 

I am really anxious this time because I have not been pregnant for 12 years and for the first time in my life I actually am happy about the entire process, even the idea of going into labor, Iam saying that now but when those contractions hit me, I may have to strangle him for this...lol

so ladies how many of you all are my age thats one question and how many of you all can relate in some way and please teach me all the short cut words like the pee test post? i am lost...

today is my ovulation date but i felt the ovary pain yesterday... we tried today so im hoping that i get a positive read in a few weeks...omg im so nervous

We actually decided to do it and I am so happy.... I dont think our first try will be successful I know we may have to keep trying and to me I am just going to let it flow naturally without trying to stress myself out if it happens or not... I want two more, if we have three more okay but I am thinking about the long term with us being together having to deal with three kids, maybe two...lol... but I can't wait to be preggo...

I am not the same age, but that is awesome you are wanting to try again!! OPKs (ovulation prediction kits) might make it easier for you to pinpoint your ovulation dates each month.  Don't hesitate to get help if you're not pregnant by 6 months!! GL!!

Sending baby dust your way.

I'm 25, 26 in may ...3 losses, 1 healthy baby who turns 4 in may.
Last loss was December 23,2014 a day shy of 8 weeks.
I have pcos and usually low b12 and d levels.

My partner is 36 and has low testerone.
He has a healthy 13 year old by his ex girlfriend.

I have him on ...
selenium (is a trace mineral that protects cells from oxidative damage and is helpful for sperm function and fertility. Selenium improves sperm formation, quantity, structure, quality, motility, and function. The epididymis, the tube through which sperm pass from the testicle through the penis, needs selenium to function properly.)

E (a powerful antioxidant that improves sperm count, quality, and motility. It helps keep the sperm membrane healthy and protects sperm from free-radical damage. Studies show that vitamin E supplements improve the sperm’s overall ability to penetrate an egg. IVF success rates are higher for couples in which the man takes vitamin E supplements)

Zinc (the most important mineral for male fertility)

Fish oil
Multi vitamin

I take an woman's multi vitamin,e, d, b6,b12, and fish oil.

43 is not in a great fertility range. Ask any RE on the planet.
