ladies!

I think it's about time that I joined the TTC over 35 threads....

Im 36 and have just gone through loads of bloodwork, an HSG, and ultrasound. My FSH and AMH numbers confirm that I have low egg quantity. The HSG showed my tubes are open for business. The ultrasound showed I have a fibroid and cyst which he said is normal for a woman my age and it shouldn't hinder getting pregnant and he is not concerned with that right now. what he is concerned about at this very moment is my Ovaries and Eggs. He gave me birth control pills to take for 10 days and see if that helps to shrink the cyst and fibroids. He said I should get AF again after I stop taking the BCPs and he wants me to come in on CD3 for more bloodwork and another ultrasound and he will then put me on either Clomid or Femara and Injectibles to see how my eggs react to the medicine. My DH's SA was a little below normal but okay. His sperm count is good but his swimmers are a little slow. If I respond well to the meds and produce good eggs, we will be going through IUI.

Im feeling okay for now. I will be praying and hoping and wishing that I react well to the meds and produce an egg(s). I don't care if it's just one egg at this point cuz all it takes is just ONE GOOD EGG and ONE GOOD SWIMMER

Im going to try and stay positive and say lots of prayers cuz I want this so bad I can taste it

Would like to find someone who has/is going through the same thing and we can buddy up if you like.... would also love to read success stories

I pray that we all get our lots of baby to you all

Hi all! Just joined this forum and tic at age 38, ugh...already have 3 children, divorced...remarried and new hubby (who is 30) and I want to have a baby...38 too old?? I'm in good health and physically fit. I also just used the Clearblue fertility monitor this month. I have 2 highs at cd8 and cd9...then peak on cd10 and today which is cd11. We BD'd on the night of the high before my morning peak, then at 6am and 10pm on cd10...plan on BDing tonight and tomorrow also... Any thoughts about my age or how the fertility monitor works?? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!

I am in utter disbelief that we conceived the first month and only days after hubby finally agreed to it! Ya-hoo! (I'm 35 and DH will be 45 soon) I have totally felt pregnant this past week, but thought it was 'mind games'.... Looks like I am due in mid-August. We won't be telling anyone in 'real life' until after we hear the heartbeat

I'm a personal trainer, and I love to workout! Now, it will be a challenge to cut-back a bit and pay attention to my body..hmm.. but I will! This is the first thing I have to change off the bat.

Does anyone know what they are saying about caffeine nowadays? It seems like it's changing all the time. I drink tea, but it has quite a bit of caffeine in it (yerba) - Thanks!!

CONGRATS!!!!!!! Best of luck on the journey :-)

Hello Everyone!!

First of all THANK YOU to the Mods for this site.....It's nice to have somewhere to go and speak with people going through the same things...

I am 44, mom to 15yo and 12 yo [both naturally concieved when I was 29 and 32], am now remarried and would like to have one more... We suffered a known miscarriage 3 yrs ago, and have secondary infertility...we've not been TTC - but up until now we did not take things to prevent conception.

I do think my body is going through changes..notable mood swings, sweats at night, more dryness down there, nausea with changes in my cycle..., up until this month things have been relatively consistent in AF. Went to see RE, and will start formal testing [hormone levels, SA, Ultrasound to see eggs, tubes etc...]

Our labs here stopped assisting conception in women with their own eggs for IVF just a few months ago! The age limit has been dropped to 42 and we are a bit devastated if we will need to go the donor route *sigh*.

Any one else in a similar boat? I really don't know where to begin..should I be charting? What supplements should I take? Currently I am on Materna and 5mg of Folic Acid...I have just heard about Coenzyme Q 10 [co Q10] and royal jelly??? What are others doing...please lead the way :-).
