    I'm on my new diet, and I'm down 2 pounds since Thanksgiving ... 28 more to go! :)

    Well, this month for some reason the fatigue isn't going away... my body has "deflated" but the fatigue remains, which isn't normal but, then again, I'm in that oh so lovely abnormal (i.e. unpredictable) phase of life. :ack:

    Still have Herpes Simplex on my lips. Luckily just a small blister. Still has to heal, though. I hate that, it makes me look unkempt.

    Sore breasts during pms is a drag. But I still prefer it to the emotional rollercoaster I end up in some cycles.

    I fell in love with cotton briefs after having my first kid. I will never go back to 'sexy' underwear again. My husband never cared to begin with, lol.

    This is a timely thread. Got my period today, haha.

    Any of you ladies current or former breast feeders? I breastfed my son for 20 months and was so glad I did, but I miss how fantastic my boobs were before breastfeeding.

    Have you had your thyroid checked? Hypothyroidism can be a problem around the menopause stage of life as several of my friends and I have discovered.

    @Velocity thank you, I'll keep that in mind. Wouldn't surprise me if my thyroid was out of whack. It's always been "normal" but near the very edge of the reference range, and I have my annual physical in February so I'll get it checked then.

    I'm going on a romantic trip this weekend up to northern Michigan, and I'm expecting to be on my period.

    What kind of contraception do you use? I've only ever used natural methods by tracking my cycles and temperature. When I was single, I was thinking about asking my doctor for a hormonal birth control, but when I got into a serious relationship I changed my mind; I'm hoping to get pregnant after I get married next summer, and I don't want to mess with things before that. Sometimes it's nice having those days each month I can look forward to with my "green light", but with my fiance's irregular work schedule, sometimes it can be really frustrating.

    I bought some new clothes for myself I don't normally wear, namely some tights, a miniskirt, and a new pair of pumps (all black). My skirt came in yesterday, it's not as short as I expected, but it's still different for me. I normally hate covering my feet, but I've been surprisingly suffering from the cold lately and need to cover my legs, but these are feeling pretty good. I've only been seeing him since April, and he's never seen me wearing anything like this before, so I'm looking forward to his reaction when he picks me up on Friday afternoon. I feel like it's been a very long time since I've been excited to get a man's reaction from my dress.

    I never understand women (in stable relationships and financially stable) who wait till age 38 or more to have a baby and then expect miracles from fertility treatments. Like it or not Mother nature fucked up women, we have a restricted fertility period and it ain't 40- to 60!

    I was in a long-term relationship with a guy from when I was 27 until 35, and I'm extremely grateful I never had a child with him. I'll be getting married in July, but I do plan to wait until afterward (I want a Catholic wedding), so I'll be at least 37, and that's if I'm lucky and don't have any complications. I'm worried about my age, and it's been on my mind for a while now, but circumstances just haven't worked out in my favor up to this point in my life.

    That is understandable but I am referring to women who expect miracles from fertility treatments, guess I'm venting based on a few friends that I have. Working so hard to be the best lawyer/doctor/corporate exec of No name plc thinking they have time then panicking when they see 40 approaching. They were all in stable, non abusive relationships but thought time was on their side. When it comes to our bodies time is on no one's side.
    It's different from meeting the right person at a certain age.

    I have a friend who is pushing 40. Her boyfriend wants kids but not until a few years from now. Her problem is that he doesn’t realise that her biological clock is ticking and he doesn’t listen when she talks with him about it. She is considering breaking up with him because she really wants children.
    A few years back I worked for a gynaecologist that specialised in fertility. A majority of the patients pertained to this category.

    The boyfriend is ignorant of female biology or does not care. Men are always fertile, the quality of the sperm might diminish with age but they still produce it

    If she loves being a mother more than she loves being his partner and if his fear is greater than his love for his partner then they better off parting ways

    Never give up having a child you want for a relationship. The relationship will likely fail eventually. Wingardium your friend needs to be ruthlessly pragmatic at this point.

    Well then he can grow up. Every person is scared of that to some degree. If he's jeopardizing someone he loves chance of ever becoming a parent he's selfish and immature.
