New here, 47 and giving this another go!


Found this forum and really could use some ttc buddies and support. I am 47, mom to 4 girls ages 3,6,19,24. We have been "casually trying" since the birth of my 3 year old (aka just not using anything) with no luck.

I found out I have 4 uterine fibroids and am wondering if they could be throwing a wrench in this, but my doctor just wants to give me drugs that will put me into menopause as an effort to get rid of them. Being that my time is limited as it is, I am choosing not to do that.

I have ordered myself a bunch of supplements, starting an exercise program, and changing my diet. I am going to start temping and have ordered some ov tests, etc. Getting a little more serious.

It's nice to meet you all and am hoping to get to know you

Wow, that's so great!
Good luck to you and your journey!
Was it difficult to get pregnant with your youngest two?
I am asking because I am 40 and have a 13 month old and am thinking about trying for number two in the next few months.

47 as well and ttc. I started vitex and maca since I read they help with fertility. It's too soon to tell a difference but I'm gonna keep taking them.

Have you given any thought to alternative therapies like acupuncture, reflexology etc.

happycupcake, I tried acupuncture when TTC #2 and I noticed many positive changes. For some women it is the magic ticket to a bfp. My only advice on acupuncture and other alternative remedies is not to put all your eggs in the acupuncture basket. If you don't get a bfp or see major progress in 3 months, then it's time to start looking at other possible remedies/approaches.

Welcome!


Best wishes to EVERYONE on this thread!


I'm taking Folate, CoQ10 (Ubiquinol), Omega, Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen and RainbowLight "Embrace Prenatal 35+". (That list is what I learned about on these boards--not to bash anyone!) I'm in my early 40s and while I feel great, I figure it can't hurt

Here's babydust to all!

Hi all, glad to see this thread! I am 45 and TTC #1. From everything Ive read, the chances of this occurring with my own eggs is basically nil, especially since Ive never been pregnant before. DH is 32, and this will be his first as well. Were doing what we can, with supplements and trying to be healthy. Tomorrow will be our first RE appointment, and Im excited and nervous!

We have been trying naturally for the past 4 months, but realistically I think we will have to proceed to DE. Im guessing that well get the DE speech tomorrow from the RE. At least Im somewhat mentally prepared for that!
