Me! I was 38 when I delivered. Working on #2 now; will be 40 at delivery.
TTC is a complicated answer; around 7 years. Finally went the IVF route and round 1 was successful.

Congratulations! That's great to hear.

I'm 37 and have a preconception appointment this week. TBH I'm not ready yet (and my younger partner is for sure not ready), but I'm getting the "you really need to lay out all the facts and consider your options because 40 is right around the corner" conversation from my obgyn. It's paralyzing to me in so many ways. Thankful to have discovered this Bowl and your comment. Looking forward to hearing about everyone's journeys, and sending love and support to all.

Started trying at 33; started IVF at 34.5 after several failed IUIs (honestly waste of time, should have moved to IVF sooner); 3 rounds of IVF; delivered at 36 (nearly 37)

Has anyone ever used a matchmaker to find a partner? Something like, "It's Just Lunch"? I've discovered that all of the ladies in my area on the dating apps are really young -- like 35ish.

I don't really like to date younger, and I really don't want to find myself with someone who wants to have a baby.

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

I had a FET early this morning of a naturally hatching PGA tested embryo. Throughout the day I have felt absolutely totally normal. In the past 10 minutes (around 11 hours after the transfer), I have started to feel the tiniest pings in my abdomen (almost like the feeling I get when I ovulate and very different from period cramps). Has anyone experienced this? Not sure if I am reading too much into it or if implantation can happen this quickly. Thanks!
