BFP Success at Age 39.5

I am an older ttc woman at 39; I was quickly discouraged by all the negative statistics, stories and sadly opinions of friends about my choice to try to conceive. I actually started to believe I couldn't conceive at all.  

I kept reading this site for some positive inspiration, and now I wanted to give back some of that encouragement to future to be mothers. After ttc #1 for only 2 months, my DF and I conceived. We feel blessed beyond words.

Here is our scoop. The second month we used Preseed once and Mucinex/evening primrose a few days prior to O.

DPO 1    BD painful
DPO 2-5 not much, cm shifted from dry, creamy and watery
DPO 6    cm dry, cramps on left side (slight) odd dreams
DPO 7    cm dry, boobs slightly puffy
DPO 8    cm stretchy, yellow, vivid dream
DPO 9    cramps AF like but milder, hunger in middle of night, red dots on underwear (not sure what that's from) broke out on jawline (not usual) cm wet/yellowish,constipated
DPO 10  hunger at night, yuck mouth, stuffy nose
DPO 11  hair loss, cm wet but slight, AF like cramps, BB's feel heavier
DPO 12  cm dry, itchy throat,sneezing
DPO 13  hunger at night, dream (Dr. said I had twins....) not likely :) cm dry, yellowish, AF like cramps, cold symptoms, yuck mouth
DPO 14  sore throat,
DPO 15  sicker and sicker (yikes the runny nose)
DPO 16  sick like a Mack truck hit me, nipples shooting pains, clear wet cm, noises in tummy, queasy (but only a moment)
DPO 17  vivid dream at 3:30am (I had 2 lines show up on test) so I got up and took HPT at 4am...Christmas Morning...BFP!

Here is praying our little bean stays. Stay positive ladies!!

Natural BFP at 41

Of course, I've been a lurker for months but since I know how much I looked for "over 40" stuff, I wanted to post

Me 41 DH 41 DD 2

what I did this month:  Evening Primrose cd1-O Wild yam extact o-present Pre-seed (1st month!) softcups, prenatals, B-6. extra folic, baby aspirin (my other usual stuff: Vit D, cal/mag/zinc) Started committed exercising!

1-3dpo noticed a change in my usual post-o cp.  CP usually comes way down really quickly after o, this time it only came half way down 7 went back up for several days.  CM dried up & was fairly scant until the BFP
4 & 5 dpo just some weird dreams
6dpo More weird dreams (all of these dreams were AF, baby, maternal type dreams)  woke up w/ a stabbing pain in left pelvic area (2am) stayed up for about 2 hours better after a snack but the stabbing continued mildly throughout the day.
7...not much
8 dpo constipation..& tmi, I had bean for both lunch & dinner, no dice. Some cramping, thought it was AF cause my cycle has been fluctuating a bit. tested $ store:  BFN
9 dpo more constipation, dried nose bleed???? curious!! tested $ store: BFN
10 dpo constipation in the am then (tmi, sorry) everything broke free!! 4 trips to the border!! Weird backache, but I have been working out.  Very slightly tender underarms. Caved by 8:30pm Faint BFP w/ a FRER
11 dpo (today) Absolutely NO sleep, DD up at 5:30a  Waited until I was absolutely busting to test w/ my 1 Digi so it wouldn't shut off before DH wakes up. POSITIVE!!! Oh heck, I'm waking him up!!!!!  Good luck ladies, it does happen!!
