Hi, I'm Deirdre
I'm 36, married for 3.5 years and have a beautiful Feb 2010 daughter, Erin. DH and I have been planning on TTC for a fall 2012 baby and after a OOPS moment last month and a late AF.....here we are.
MY DD was planned and took 3 mos of trying to get pregnant. I'm REALLY hoping that we get as lucky this time around and that being over 35 will not be an issue. I was using the depo shot for bc for 6 mos after DD. It made me a lunatic and came off of it in Oct 2010 and eventually started lexapro for some depression/anxiety issues. I got AF again in April of 2011 and haven't had regular cycles yet, but they have generally been under 30 days. This last one was 35:eek: But I have weaned off the Lexapro and and ready to go.
I had a very uneventful pregnancy with DD, but I have Hypothyriodism and had a see a specialist throughout the 9 mos. Luckily this meant monthly ultrasounds. I'm guessing I'll be getting that again, especially being over 35.
I tried tempting a few months ago just to get the hang of it and it really wasn't for me. I'm planning on using OPKs and monitoring CM. Any one have any other suggestions???
OK. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Speaking of sticking to things, DD is HANGING off of me right now. Gotta go.
Looking forward to the journey with you ladies!
