don't worry Bigger, just sometimes it goes quiet for a little bit, we aren't ignoring you just as all over 40 and some of us having kids is a bit hectic at times. Stick around and i am sure you will find loads of support on here

Booth hope af stays away and it's a bfp. Fx'd for two great outcomes ( bfp and great grades)

Max I'm in Canada so snow is normal here this time - granted right now there's none in my area. I don't want a green Xmas

Bigger big hugs we all understand where your coming from. I have 2 kids dd18 and ds16. I also desperately want to have 1 more baby.
I'm ecstatic when one of these ladies gets a bfp. I share their ups and downs. I feel there pain when af shows up or worse happens
We all support each other. I hope this is the support you need from here

Pipi glad the car is back and working

Thanks ladies for the support and understanding and listening to me go on about the wedding. I will change my display pic after so you can see a pic

Have a great night and lots of baby dust to everyone

Hi Bigger Our daughters are the same age! Have you told your daughter that you are 'trying'? DH and I have two adopted children and never had the 'urge' to reproduce until very recently. Butterfly is right about 41 not being too old, although the logistics can vary depending on whether you have to hunt around for a doctor that will support you. Is your doctor on-board with your efforts? Take care - I don't always post but I do read frequently.

Morning Ladies

Bigger - See what a lovely welcome you have had and as I said most of us are nearing 40 or over - when I first joined this thread I gained a lot of support as I was on my journey to have just one more child - so we can all understand were you are coming from on that one.

When you reach a certain age Dr's seem to dismiss your concerns whether it be the length of time you are ttc or worse so this is where I found the ladies on here to be more knowledgeable and helpful than the Doctors.(thanks ladies)

I didn't understand about the issues us older ladies would have as I had two perfect children already how hard could it be?

The Drs unfortunately put a lot of of our concerns down to our age and also just bad luck - you will learn hun like the rest of us it helps to have an understanding Dr who is prepared at least to carry our basic blood tests.

So now you've found us - you have no need to be on your own

You're welcome Pippi, just send me a message or pop something on here and I will find it eventually. Personally speaking I was...what the hey, I'll give it a go, although it didn't work the months I used it, a few months later I was pregnant and who's to say it didn't do something to those early eggs that take 3 months to mature (sadly that ended in the Apr m/c)

Yeah spotting stopped, thanks to those that were asking. Paranoia has well and truely set in but trying to remain calm. Concentrating on the kitchen refit madness.


PDMC - Look foward to seeing that picture.

Bigger - I'm 41, I'll be 42 in April so hang in there. I'm have a low ovarian reserve according to my AMH tests. I have no idea if this will be successful or not. I've a whole lot of worry ahead because of my previous losses, but a happy ending can happen, and has happened for a number of ladies on here some older than us. So, try to keep positive, it can go a long way.

After being 40 it is pretty much fob off time. Fertility clinics will suggest IVF or donor eggs. Or you'll get the you've been pregnant before so it will happen again. They don't know that just by looking at you. If your GP is sympathetic they can be really helpful but even they have their moments. Its when things are dismissed out of hand, or without evidence that it gets really difficult because you feel there is no where to turn.

Hello to everyone else I haven't mentioned. I keep getting interrupted typing this so I've forgotten most of what I was going to write to who!!

Yep our oldest knows we're trying for a another baby. She is thrilled about it an said to me I hope you have a boy or twins this time. I laugh an said that be nice this time around so can be done for good. I've always wanted a big family but with all the issues at least hope for one more an it be done.

Our RE believes is a lady is in her 40's they are about to old to have babies. As he said to me long while back your getting OLDER an soon things will not work. I've had my bloodwork done an my levels for menopause isn't even close to menopause yet.


I'm seriously thinking of just giving up on TTC. I'm not happy at all an doing nothing for a day or so of fighting about ready to leave everthing an just give up all together.

Called my RE office today to ask a question an they aren't even in. I can't get no answers at all. of why they are wanting me to come in for a CD11 scan. I'm really ticked off at them an hate my body.

Bigger- I have 1 1/2 yo twin boys, am over 40 and thinking I may want another. Are they saying they won't consider IVF?

CD 17 and still low. The other day the stick had 2 nice lines on it so I'm going to tell myself the monitor is broken ha ha.

Hello everyone :

So after a ton of soul searching the hubby and I have decided to go for round #3 of IVF using my own eggs..Is that crazy? We can't afford a donor and the clicks ticking either way..In my heart I know our chances are way better with donor eggs, but just not financially possible
Any advise?

See my sig

Thanks,
~Angie
