Ttc 2024

Who is ttc in 2024?? I am so excited to start trying with my boyfriend. I had a “missed” miscarriage in January 2019 at 8 weeks and was unable to conceive again with my ex-husband for a couple of years. They said I wasn’t ovulating and even clomid didn’t help!! It was very strange because I got pregnant super fast with my 1st two pregnancies. I’ve been on bc for about a year or so now and I’ve read that it can help regulate your cycle again so I’m hoping it has. Finishing off the pack I am on now on Saturday and then no more, yay! :slight_smile: I’m very hopeful that now is the time. I have a 6 year old son who will be 7 in April. I’m nervous about such a big age gap but I know it will also be helpful in a lot of ways too. Anyone else trying again after infertility issues and also maybe a big age-gap between children?

Edited 1/30/24: I found out 1/15 that I am expecting! I should be about 7 weeks now, hopefully everything will go smoothly. If not, I’ll join you all again, but for now, best wishes on your journey and sticky baby dust to all!! <3

We have one more chance this year for ttc, but unless we’re really lucky, there’s a good chance I’ll be in this thread.

As for age gaps, our kiddos are going to be closer in age than six years but my sister is 7ish years older than me. And while we werent super close when she was in her teens/young adult stage (which I think is natural, a 14 yr old doesnt really want to play with a 7 yr old) We were close when we were little and now when we are both adults. And we never really had a bad relationship at any point in time.

Not sure if I can join this thread or not under the circumstances, but I will pop in and say hi!

We are not 100% sure if we are ever having any more, but if we manage to nail that down as a definite yes, I would like to start trying [name_u]March[/name_u] sort of time. Similar to what you said with having infertility issues @ladyhope - it took us over two years to conceive [name_f]Alice[/name_f], so I’m kind of pre-empting another long road. And if we were to have another, I would prefer to do it sooner rather than later. Mostly because I am on track for starting my PhD research next [name_u]September[/name_u], and it would be much easier to take time off at the beginning of the project rather than several years in.

Funnily enough I’ve been very nervous about the potential of not having a big enough age gap :sweat_smile: Everything I read online is so negative about all types of baby spacing - small gaps, large gaps, no gap, no siblings… … it feels like you can’t win!

We’re not quite out of the game for 2023 yet—waiting for confirmation either way for this cycle, but if it’s negative then we have one more cycle before the [name_u]New[/name_u] Year (even though we wouldn’t get a BFP until [name_u]January[/name_u] 2024).
So fingers crossed for this cycle, but if not I’ll likely be seeing y’all in here!

[name_f]My[/name_f] SO isn’t very enthusiastic about TTC after his birthday in [name_f]April[/name_f] (he’s very hung up on how old he’d be as a father/how old he’d be for our child’s milestones/etc.) so we’re really trying hard to have it happen before then.

[name_m]Just[/name_m] posting to send luck and love to everyone starting or continuing their journey in 2024! We are expecting our first in [name_f]April[/name_f] after a long road TTC, the 2024 thread is the first thread I won’t be in since 2017!!!
Keep your heads up, be easy on yourselves and I hope you all see your positive tests and sticky babies before the year is through!!! :two_hearts::two_hearts::two_hearts:

I don’t know if we’ll be having a '23 chance (haven’t been tracking really, had other things on my mind), so I’ll almost definitely be in this thread! I am beyond excited, we’ve postponed TTC several times so although there’s no way to know how long this journey will be, starting it feels like a huge success already. See you all around :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

You are absolutely right! That’s why it’s probably best just to say screw it and let it be. This is always my aspiration but my brain likes to sabotage me with anxiety :sweat_smile:

I get it! I am 34, turning 35 in [name_u]August[/name_u] and I am so nervous about being an “older” mom to any future children. I was 27 when I had my first and 29 when I miscarried my 2nd. Any other 30s+ in here? I really should just stay off a google haha.

@ladyhope - Yeah, he’s not concerned for me at all (I’m 27, will be 28 in March) but he’s about to be 44 and already has an adult-age child. And with his child, he was a single father so he had a lot of things he didn’t get to do with his child that he wished he had the time for… so I really think he’s just overly nervous that he’ll be “too old” to do those things haha.

[name_u]Baby[/name_u] dust to all of you xx

I just turned 30 and DH and I are TTC for our 1st so…might be in back-to-back threads depending on how things go… we’d like 3-5 and I’d really like to be done before 35 (probably not gonna happen if we end up wanting 5 unless I, by some miracle, have twins/triplets (wouldn’t be mad at it but also the risks…)

So lots of ifs if we can even conceive naturally…but we’ll see! We have 1 more try for 2023 and then we’ll see if I’m in this thread or not…

I don’t know for sure because theoretically I’ve got at least one more cycle in 2023 where it could happen… (sadly) expecting to be here though.

I’m only on my second month of really trying (after a LONG postpone) and the next fertile window will be the last week of this year. So unless I’m really lucky, I’ll very likely join this thread.

Good luck everyone!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] everyone. I’m hopeful I will be joining this thread in the coming year.

I already have 2 year old girl boy twins and hoping we can start trying for another one this year. It was discussed last year but we decided to put it off as my daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy and we were dealing with that trying to get her medicine in check. She is now seizure free for a few months now since we found the right medication dose so I’m hopeful we can start trying for a new family member.

It took me 15 months and 1 miscarriage in between to conceive my twins so I think it’s going to be another long hall. I’m also nervous about conceiving another set of twins as my first were spontaneous.

It looks like I will more than likely be in this group. We’ve been trying to conceive our second child for a little over 2 years now. We have an almost 4YO son (who we also struggled to conceive) so we’re looking at a minimum of a 4.5 year age gap. I think I’m rather okay with that, infertility heartbreak aside, because I’ve seen so many friends and family struggle with smaller age gaps.

I hope 2024 brings good news and healthy pregnancies for all of us :heart:

Joining this thread, probably too early, but oh well!

Heading into 2024 with a 2 month old, but will need to look at our next IVF frozen embryo transfer just before or after his 1st birthday in [name_u]October[/name_u]. I’m turning 30 in [name_u]September[/name_u], so we can’t afford to waste the time and also who knows how long it’ll take.

Hoping for the best for everyone here!

Good luck to everyone in this group and those that will join later! TTC can be a hard road, so make space to give yourself lots of love and patience and don’t be hard on yourself if it doesn’t “go to plan” right away. I hope you all get that little magical line sooner rather than later! Xx
