  2. I am getting my period and have an otc fertility testing set that I can use at home. It has shown there are fertile days, or, well, open windows. Was more wondering about the probability of not only getting pregnant on our own, but carrying to term as well. So are you thinking of getting pregnant or why test? You would be considered fertile theoretically speaking for up to a year after you had your last period.
  3. I actually bought these four months back but was not sure if it was worth the gaggle to take them. Maybe I should do that for a few months, at least to get distracted and feel I am doing something. I should add that the pregnancy I lost was healthy so it was not a genetic issue, but a carrying issue. All things considered, it is a longing, but life goes on. I never expected to have this strong urge at this age. My last two pregnancies at 36 and 39 were very easy but took a bit longer to conceive.
  4. Yeah, thinking of getting my hormones checked. Seems there is something that can be done in that regard.
  5. Has anyone successfully gotten pregnant and carried a healthy baby to full term end of their 40s? After trying for 16 months, I conceived what was a healthy pregnancy, but it stopped growing around 8 weeks and I had a d and c at 11 weeks. This was around 5 months ago and as the due date gets closer I am feeling even more sad. Anyways, should I assume that window has closed or might there still be a glimmer of hope? Am I setting myself up for potential heartache with a low chance of getting pregnant and an even lower chance of delivering at term? I am healthy and have had multiple pregnancies.
  6. Hahahaha!!! I just came back from visiting there this week and a couple of times greeted people with Good Morning! instead of a basic flat Hi. Oh, boy, both times I felt like I put the person on the spot and they were totally caught off guard from the more intimate impression of Good morning! Of course here in NE, we use good morning until noon etc. I think it is very interesting to learn the cultural language or places (or re-learn after meeting other cultures as in my case when I go back to DK). It took me a while to decode exactly what to say and how here in NE to get the reaction I neede
  7. I totally get what you are saying. I feel the same way and while I like my friends or circles then being alone with one person is not only boring, but puts a lot of pressure on keeping a possibly boring conversation going with a person you have only so much in common with despite sharing some history together.
  8. I have lived in NE for the past 18 years or so and am originally from Denmark where people are really dry. I find New Englanders to generally be just about chatty and friendly enough without intruding on my privacy! Last year my husband and I visited Kansas City and were "creeped out" by how friendly people were and the in depth conversations that happened within 30 seconds of greeting someone walking their dog or the cleaner at the hotel! It was definitely a culture shock. First off, then you might live in a depressed Maine town, that I don't know, but in general, don't take it personally and
  9. Handmaid's Tale is in many ways the reality of millions of people to one or more degrees, people living across the world (and in our country) today. Being intricately involved with the humanitarian crisis in Syria, a country ruled by a heartless dictator who allows no free speech or rights and in the past few years systematically has used rape and mutilation as means to subjugate people, the Handmaid's Tale has been very, very hard to watch (and read). It is easy enough to refuse to look other's reality in the eyes, but it doesn't make it go away.
  10. Race was only part of her abhorrent tweet. She normalized the concept of Muslims as being extremists. Seems we got all caught up in the racist part of her outburst that we forgot that a whole religion was attacked as well including the millions of Americans who identify as Muslims. Rosanne did blame it on her mental health medications the day after which caused the pharmaceutical company to come out with a statement denying links between them and bigotry and racism.
  11. MBM, Of course you can share anything you want. Would really appreciate it. Thanks so much for wanting to reach more people. Nothing is too little to make a huge difference.
  12. There are always ways to help, for sure! We have a knitting group that makes squares ands ends them in and then we make those into blankets that are made with love and hope. Check it out at https://www.facebook.com/groups/knitsquaresforsyria/. We do containers and receive donations from even far away places. Some people mail us a box of stuffed animals fx. and we include the box in our next container. Address would be NuDay Syria, 14 Ellyson Ave, East Hampstead NH 03826. Our website info is http://www.nudaysyria.net/containers.html. Alternately then we have a wonderful wish list on
  13. Thanks, peeps! I just posted an update. I am having a quiet day and need to actually plan some homeschooling so it was lovely to be alerted by Jennifer on Facebook that you guys were reading the article. I kept telling the reporter how important my virtual homeschooling community always has been and how many followed the conflict and subsequently also support my efforts. It's been great. I have always loved our WTM community and still am active/reading on the FB group, so I didn't drop off the earth completely (even if my husband thinks so!).
  14. Friends, It's been a while! Jennifer alerted me that our WTM friends were sharing the Boston Globe article so I thought I should stop by and say hi. I have been very low key the last three years due to the Revolution in Syria that very quickly turned into the worst humanitarian crisis of our lifetime, but incidentally right now am in a re-energizing phase to avoid burn-out and to keep the ship at home from sinking. Not that you would know from the outside that we are anything but busy, but I have taken an emotional step back so that I can continue doing this for a long, long time. We
