Over 40 ttc, I KNOW I'm not the ONLY one! - Page 16

I really WANT to see something, but that picture's just so blurry. Can you try taking a clearer one?

believe me I tried, I got a new phone and the camera on this one really stinks, this one was the best I was able to get, I figured since my eyes are bad that maybe that's why it looked blurred or I was hoping anyways. Thank you though I appreciate it. I got some stash that should be here Thurs. and see what happens. It's just wierd with how I have been feeling and the monitor isn't peaking or dropping back down from high. and I haven't ever had my temps so out of wack before, and nothing is any different that I can think of that would affect my temps. Trying to keep it to myself for now, until I make sure it's not just me.

well talk about a crazy day, was in the ER because our dog attacked me, doing ok, but they did a pregnancy test before they did xrays, and their test was negative, although I don't know the sensitivity of their tests because twice their tests were neg, and I had a positive on First REsponse. I just took a FRER and there is a really faint line there. so not to sure what to think atm. trying to get a decent pic to post on here of it.

Leeanne, I have to ask again what exactly he meant with "a 50% chance"? Because I wonder if he could have really meant that you have a 50% chance to get pregnant? Like "at all" or in any given cycle? I mean, that would be an unusually high percentage. IVF clinics may have that success rate with women under 40 or under 37. But the chance to become pregnant is typically about 20% in any given natural cycle and declines with age. Like at our age, this percentage is only 5% or so. So I figure that still gives you as much as a chance as we all have. So go ahead!! :)

angel... I hope I am not saying anything to upset you (I know, I am a pretty straightforward person and I may accidentally offend someone...) The fact that you have faint positives every months but AF still arrives without fail... This could possibly indicate elevated HCG levels, which is a sign of (pre)menopause. If they had done a blood test at the clinic, your hcg could have potentially been around 10 or more?

Maybe you should ask your doctor to do some fertility bloodwork (CD3: fsh, lh, estradiol, amh...)

AFM: The is here. BIG SIGH.

Toronto-no you are not upsetting me or offending me by no means, I appreciate the honesty. but wow I didn't know that, with the hcg, I know the first mth, I had an early miscarriage. But I didn't know i was preggers, the symptoms with the hot flashes, nausea, etc. the dr. and I thought premenopause, but surprise, and when he retested hormone levels for menopause, they were all with in normal range, but I 'm sure all of that can change, it's been about 6 mths or so. but will def look into having him check my levels again. yeah it would be upsetting, but it's in God's hands, and I trust and have faith in his plan for us. If it's not meant to be, he has still blessed us with the wonderful children that hubby and I do have.

Torontochick .....this is what my consultant told me before i had my operation....the 5% statistic comes into effect in your mid-40's Iam 40 as for the 50% its an at all statistic.
I had a clip reversal and the chances of concieving after this type is much higher than any other type of reversal. The odds of me getting pg are def lower but not 5%

Praying for all of you! I want to see at least 1 BFP post even if it's not me this cycle! AF showed her ugly head this morning! I always have 28 day cycles and everything within my cycle (when I cramp, how hard and how long I bleed) is always like clockwork! This month I was sure I was prego. Non of my normal AF signs showed up and I had a 42 day cycle. I had 1 neg and 1 faint poss test. Then 2 days ago all prego signs stopped. This morning I woke up in major pain and AF was here in full swing! I always start slow and light for the first day. Something very strange is going on with my body! I pray it's not pre menopause!!!!

leeanne72, I think torontochick's confusion is the same as mine. It's pretty unheard of for anybody's chance of pregnancy - without IVF - to be 50%. The healthiest 20-year-old's chance actively trying to conceive with an equally perfect 20-year-old guy is only 20%. But if that's what they told you, you should be pregnant in no time. Good luck!!

Good morning ladies,

Yesterday I had major cramping with a faint positive using a $ store test. I have been cramping and have had horrible gas and heartburn since 1 dpo I never have any of these symptoms when AF is about to show up. BUT that freakin witch reared her ugly head this morning and she is right on time.


Well time to start over...DH has been holding back again (tmi) and back on the supplements. hoping for my big O in 13 days.


Good luck ladies

Perfectmatch... Sorry to hear that the came to get you! :(

Leeanne... sorry for going all quiet here. Angel is on vacation as far as I know, I think some others are waiting for tests and I am not TTC this month either. Decided to go with my previous IVF protocol. To chicken to switch it for my last attempt and risk that it may not work. So I can't TTC because I have to take a Lupron depot shot on CD21, which is too early to know if I'm preggers and therefore I have to avoid the fertile days this month, which is so ironic :(

essemkay... How are you doing this cycle?

Life is becoming a waiting game... when will I O.... how long til I can test.... the waiting is horrible... especially getting a negative hpt and having to wait for the big O again! My DH says it's funny for him too... has never tried to have a baby before... only tried not to! He says this is a lot more fun though, LOL!

Happyending - I like your DH's attitude! It's always more fun to try than to not....hopefully you will get your BFP soon.

AFM - currently in the tww and on 7dpo. Too early to test, but way hopeful this month. Have tried the Pregnitude, Instead Softcups, and Preseed during peak O times and BD'ed like crazy. Now I just have to locate my patience!! Here patience.....here patience....LOL.

How is everyone else doing this week? and where does everyone stand in their journey? Seems like we've all been pretty busy lately. Here's wishing us all BFP soon!!

pixandpoetry.... how long do you think you'll wait before you test???? I am excited for you! I am 3 days out and was hoping to make it to 15 before I tested. I have no idea what's up with my cycle since I got my mirena removed!

Happyending-- I was attempting to wait until Saturday, as that would be 11dpo. I faltered this a.m. though and tested anyways......BFN.. although I thought I saw a shadow of pink. I think I'll wait until Saturday and give it another go. Best to stay optimistic!

Thanks for the vote of confidence though! I am wishing you all the best of luck on your journey....keep us posted.

Hello to all :) Yes we are on vacation in Daytona Beach, Florida. Having a great time with the hubby and our daughter. going to be heading home Friday morning and will be home early Saturday morning. Haven't been temping or anything for this past week so not sure what's happening, especially with how my temps were up and down, and monitor was still high before we left, no peak. will just have to wait and see. AF is due next Wed. Just relaxing for a change and enjoying just being with each other :)
