35 and Trying for baby #2

Anon_4741 posted:
I'm looking for some thoughts/opinions from anyone who's knows about this or who has dealt with it before. I will be 35 this year and DH and I have been trying for #2 since January. We've also had a 26 YO female "roommate" living with us since then. She spends a lot of time with us instead of in her basement apt that she rents from us for the time being. She has been a bit of a succubus, for lack of a better word, for me lately and is taking up a lot of my "home" time talking about her life, her problems, her dating drama's. I like being there for her and DH and I both like the extra $$ she brings in for us, especially when times are a little tighter than we'd like. Her monthly schedule seems to always be off. She used to manipulate her pills so she didn't have a period and have since gotten off the pill and is now on a mini-IUD so her schedule is all messed up. I'm afraid that her messy monthly schedule...and just the added stress of a roommate that won't give us some space, could possibly be hindering our monthly tries for baby #2. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Could this be real or am I just fishing for another reason why I'd love to have her out of my house? Any responses are appreciated.

Hi I think you are stressing out with the roommate and it is not good when you are trying to conceive. Better kick her out of the house or talk to her what her boundaries are. I hope this helps.

Thank you Aileen83. I think I agree....just writing my post led me to believe that was what is needed. I think this will be happening soon. Thank you
