MrsBtoBe14 :  NTNP is not trying not planning. OPKs is an ovulation predictor test. It doesn’t confirm ovulation but tells you when there is an LH surge.

I was 34 partner was 37. I used OPKs and hadn’t been on hormonal birth control for 10 years ( we used condoms, rhythm method and pull out to avoid pregnancy). It took 3 cycles. Currently holding our Valentines day baby. He will be our only.

I’ve got a question, is fertility inherited? Mum and Dad are one of 5 each . They had six kids. Each of my sister’s have pretty much pregnant the first month. Such a fertile family. So is that genetic? Not taking age into it

missviolet92 :  I believe there’s a genetic link for sure.

missviolet92 :  Maybe to some degree but my mum had my sister first month trying, brother first month trying then I was an ‘oops’ baby. We’ve been TTC 19 cycles so far and nothing. My sister and her D.H are CFBC so this is a very small sample size!

Don’t know why you tagged me in that but I assume it was a mistake.

missviolet92 :  maybe… but not always. My mom tried to have kids for 16 years before finally getting pregnant with me. 

Meanwhile, I had no issues.

First kid, 29 and 30. It took us 3 cycles but one my Darling Husband was away most of my fertile days so that one doesn’t really count. We used OPK’s for the first time in cycle 3 and got pregnant. 

Orginally wanted 3 kids but I hate being pregnant so Darling Husband will have to settle for 2.

My husband and I started trying at 27 and 28 years old. We are now 30 and 31 with no baby. It’s been about 25 cycles or so. No health issues. Unexplained infertility. Ideally we want two bio kids and to adopt one… but it looks like we may be heading down the adoption route if IVF continues not to work for us.

MrsBtoBe14 :  The plan is to have one and see how things go. Neither of us ever had a particular number of kids in mind and for as much “research” as we’ve done, we both know we’re going to be to feel completely unprepared.

If we thought we could manage it mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially, I think our max would be 3.

missviolet92 :  There could be a genetic link but it’s not a guarantee. My mom had secondary infertility…she got pregnant natuarlly with me when she was 26, but then went through early menopause in her late 20s and could never conceive again. I got pregnant fairly easily when I was 32 (second cycle trying, though that ended in MC…then a sticky bean on our 5th cycle).

I also have a good friend who’s mother was a legitimate fertile myrtle (I hate that term but it’s accurate)…pregnant on the first try with both her kids. But it took my friend seven YEARS to conceive their baby, with some intervention. So who knows.

We never did conceive.  I was 32, Darling Husband was 31 when we started trying.  We tried for 2 years with no luck and then went to a fertility specialist.  There we found out that our chances of conceiving naturally were about 1%.  If we did IFV, our chances improved to 10%.  We decided to officially stop trying and if a miracle happened, then it happened.  Probably not the scenario anyone likes to hear, but it’s our reality.

I had to look up acronyms to follow along. NTNP seems to be not trying (or tracking?) but not preventing, I think? This is pretty much what my doctor recommended for the first few months of trying so it doesn’t stress us out. When people are saying TTC that means you are tracking fertile days and ovulation? Is that right?
