Hi everyone... I'm new here... am 41, husband is 40, we are TTC 1st since March 2012 after coil out in Feb 2012...

We never wanted children until now, when it seems right, although we've been together for 10yrs (ish), we only got married late last year, discussed trying around Xmas, and finally made decision to try in January, just after I turned 41, as I said, kinda now or never, to give ourselves some kind of realistic chance.

It's a tough ride at this age.. and a heck of a learning curve about all things to do with fertility and TTC.

This cycle I added in a bunch of extra stuff, and husband takes male fertility tab too, so shall see if they all work... waiting to test or for AF next week...

I look forwards to sharing with everyone.. as a cycle buddy from another App/website suggested trying this website.. so here I am.

Hi ladies,

Would you mind me joining this thread? I saw a familiar face here, angel, she is also on the Over 35 thread...

I am 42, turning 43 next month. My DBF is 48, turning 49 next month. I have a son from a previous relationship, he just turned 5 this week. I wish the circumstance in my life would have been such that I could have gotten him a sibling much earlier - better for me (my eggs are too old) and better for him (closer in age). Well, life is not like this... as we all know.

Anyway, we have been trying for a year now. We started trying IVF cycles last year, one in September and one in November, both BFN. There were also many natural cycles. After the second failed IVF, we took 4 months off and I went on a ton of supplements including DHEA. We did our most recent IVF in May and I got pregnant. Unfortunately I just had to undergo a D&C because the baby had stopped growing at around 6w2d and there was no hb at 8w2d.

My RE says I could try again possibly as early as August, maybe it's going to be September. One month will not make a difference at this point, I suppose. I just went back on my extensive supplement regimen and need to look ahead to keep me focused and help me cope.

I've been on IVF cycle threads during my treatments, but right now I think it would also be great to talk to women over 40 who more or less all face the same issue - that of aging ovaries... Everytime one of us gets a BFP it makes me hopeful. So I hope you don't mind me tagging along and lurking for a bit, while I wait for my cycle to restart so I can go back to TTC and our next and last IVF eventually.



Me: 43 DBF: 49 13 unsuccessful cycles TTC IVF #3: u/s 8w2d: bean stopped growing, no hb , 06/21 D&C IVF #4 BFP - it's a girl! 06-03-2013 Fiona Isabel was born

Toronto-glad to see ya over here,wonderful ladies over here too :)

Mommy1990-Thank you, trying not to get to excited and keeping it to myself for now, today is AF day and so far a no show. Did some research and I have lupus which can cause m/c, so wondering if this is what the problem has been. Also found an article that pregnant women with lupus should be put on Heparin and baby aspirin. My OB has never said anything in regards to this, other than I am considered high risk because of the lupus, but I am taking the baby aspirin. Just been trying to find if there is anyone on here somewhere that has dealt with this. things do seem a bit different this time around, I am already extremely nauseous and lots of symptoms.

Angel - sending much !

Welcome Torontochick! I too am on both the 35+ and this's nice to have both groups to lean on and find strength and comfort.

Similar to you, my ob/gyn would like me to start IVF and is sending me off to a reproductive endo. Before starting I'll be getting an HSG, next cycle as it's too late this time around and my DH will be getting a sperm analysis done again.

I have my first reproductive appt on Aug 20 (earliest availability). For some reason, after being told last week by my ob/gyn that the reason for us not conceiving has to do w/ the quality of my ovaries was really difficult to hear. Although it's not a surprise (TTC x2 years)'s just tough to finally be told you dx of infertility is d/t poor ovarian quality.

Hope everyone else is hanging in there....the forum has been kind of quiet lately....thinking of all of you, sending much .
