I know a lot of you are currently TTC on this thread and am wondering what your opinions are on taking 5-HTP or SSRI's while TTC? I know when I was pregnant at the beginning of this yr. I was taking Prozac - it ended it m/c. But then when I m/c in Sept. I wasn't taking anything. So I'm thinking is it better to be medicated or non-medicated and under stress Oh, this is so frustrating because I'll be 44 in Jan. and feel like my fertility years are 7 more at most since my mom went through meno at 50. Any advice mamas

Hi ladies! How has everyone been? showed late last night after my longest LP ever. On top of that we had a cold front blow through and we had a low of 39 degrees last night! : That might not seem bad to some of you but I live in SW Florida and we usually don't get that cold until January, if at all. But it's all good! Onto a new cycle with renewed hope!

Yes, I am currently TTC naturally although I may try a couple more rounds of clomid. And I agree, anything below 73 IS freezing! :

We've been going to parents house forever. My mom's a great cook. I'm NOT. I wouldn't even know the first thing to do in cooking a turkey - I guess being a vegatarian is part of that

It's usually stressful bacause in my family my DS is the only toddler and gets all the attention from the adults. I think it's a little much, but what can I do. I just really wish he even had ONE cousin that was within afew years of his age. His nearest first cousins are over 23 yrs older. I guess that's one of the pitfalls of having children in your 40's One reason I hope, hope, hope I can have at lease one more so my sweetie can have at least one sibling.

Back to Thianksgiving...we usually talk and talk and eat and eat til we can't eat anymore. then take home loads of leftovers to use for the next week. I tried to get my dad to put up the Christmas tree so we could decorate as a family on Thanksgiving night, but he seems to think it would be too dry by the time Christmas gets here : My DH said that most of the trees are cut already anyhow so it wouldn't make a difference, but who knows.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone!!!

Hi! I haven't posted in a little while. Our new thing is a two hour nap in the evening on my front in the Ergo. Time to catch up on posts, I guess! (I have a hard time getting things done with her on my front. On the back, that's a different story, that is totally hands and arms free!)

Passionatewriter- awesome story! I would love an HBAC or even a VBAC! I need to find me a partner, though, one is my limit as a single mama. For now, anyway! When she's a little older I might go for it again, though!

Be- I'm so sorry for your loss!



Thanksgiving plans- I think we're going to spend two nights at my mom's house. (My mom is only 58 so she's a young nana and I'm an older mama!) We like to stay the night once in awhile, but with all the packing involved for one night, I thought we might stay for two. She only lives about 40 minutes away. We'll play games and eat yummy food and I'll probably reminisce about how last year at this time I was pregnant. We gave thanks for Hannah then and this year we definitely give thanks for her!

My 3yoDD has severe food allergies. Last year I cooked for 17 so that I could be sure to have dairy, egg, peanut and shellfish free foods. This year the family that usually visits will be coming over Christmas. The generation above my DH and me is almost gone. We will end up taking a trip to a cabin in the mountains for a little retreat.

adjusting to life with 2 younger kids. ive never done this before so its definitely a learning experience...who says you cant teach old dogs new tricks?

Zen was 5 weeks old yesterday and I have to say, I think it took me 5 weeks to catch up. He is such a mellow baby at night though...has a really good sleeping pattern which none of my other kids ever had...but he nurses constantly during the day to make up for it. Lets just say that I am soo thankful to be a SAHM right now. I dont know how he would deal w/ being bottle fed...i woudl be pumping a zillion ounces a day.

this week was DP's first week back to work after paternity leave and it went well. I just made such we stayed out of the house for the most part. DP has this next week off too and im so excited. its just easier having him home.

TDay will be a 2 hour trip up north...to even colder air. We rent cabins b/c the family is so large (6 siblings, 13 neices/nephews; gp's, etc. etc.). im excited but worried....Zen HATES the car.
