    Hi everyone, this is my first post! I just happened to stumble across this site while consulting Dr. Google. A little background info: I am 37 years old and and DH is 47. This is our 4th month ttc (I do have 3 kids from a previous marriage). Honestly, I’m really starting to lose hope and I don’t have anyone I can really talk to about it. Yesterday was 9dpo for me and I was convinced I had a chance at a bfp this month. I have been crampy since after O, had a lower backache off and on, some loose stool for the past few days and then yesterday was when things really got interesting! In the morning I was really crampy and entirely convinced af was going to show her ugly face early, but she never did. I went to work and a couple times after having to rush around (I work in an animal hospital) I felt a little breathless and like my heart was pounding, which is odd for me as I’m in pretty good shape. Then, in the late afternoon/early evening, I felt a little cold and took my temperature out of curiosity. It was 99.3!!! My body temp never runs that high, unless I’m sick (and I’m not). Last night I was also having some aching around my belly button, but I’m not sure if that means anything. Finally, when I went to bed, my legs felt really restless and I kept waking up. This morning my temperature had gone back to normal and my bbt has even dropped from yesterday. I took a FRER pregnancy test and it was negative. Part of me feels like I’m out this month, especially since DH and I were only able to BD once around O time because of our opposite work schedules. But then the other part of me says not to give up hope yet because I have definitely had some weird things going on. I’m only 10dpo today, so it’s probably too early to rest, right? I’ve also been crampy this morning and tmi, but I just used the bathroom and a little clump of white discharge fell into the toilet. What do you ladies think? Am I losing my mind...because it sure feels like it!!! I would really appreciate any input, experiences, etc. so happy I found this site! Wishing everyone loads of baby dust

    9dpo is far too early to test. Wait until your AF is due and take another FRER. If it's still negative then that's a pretty solid answer.

    Also, four months is not a very long time in terms of TTC (though I know it can feel like it!). If you've had three kids already then you'll likely be pregnant again soon :) Just try and enjoy the process in the mean time :)

    Thank you for the response! It’s just so discouraging to see the drop in bbt today. It also makes me nervous because DH and I are both over 35 years old, and according to everything I’ve read it’s a lot harder to ttc.
