Hi, all! I wanted to pop in and introduce myself. I have been mainly posting in the assisted conception forum for the last few years and, after my last failed ivf, I took a break from the boards entirely. I am 39 with low quality/reserve and dh is 42 with low quantity and poor motility. We have had a failed iui and two failed ivfs. We adopted our youngest daughter from Russia in 2005. On a whim, I asked my regular ob/gyn to prescribe me a cycle of Clomid 50mg to be taken days 5-9 (previous clomid cycles through my RE had been days 3-7). I took an hpt on 11/7 at approximately 9dpo (it could have been 8dpo), BFN. On 11dpo, I used another FRER and got a faint BFP. the BFPs got darker each day and I had my first HCG test on Saturday (13 or 14dpo) and my second HCG test on Monday (15 or 16dpo). My first beta was 60 and my second 146 with a 37.2 hour doubling time. We are praying that this sticks. The doctor was pleased with the doubling so he hasn't scheduled any other hcgs but scheduled us for a 7wk ultrasound on 12/5. After the hyper-attention paid to my ivf cycles by my RE, this seems odd to me. Anyway, I am not ready to move to a first trimester forum since it is so early and I have all kinds of fears due to my age. I thought I'd introduce myself to other ladies who may understand Take care!
