Pushing the limit at 39!

Postby CyndiLooWhoo » Thu Feb 05, 2015 8:51 pm

I just had a loss a couple of weeks ago and we're waiting to TTC again.

Are there any ladies here who are pushing 40 and freaking out about diminished fertility?

I'm mid-thirties so I'm not quite there yet but of course I worry. I just remind myself that every woman is soooooo different that to assume my fertility is comparable to anyone elses is silly since I don't know what is going on in there. I figure that at the end of the day it's not up to us and hopefully if it's in your heart to have a third that you will regardless of your age. Just keep doing all you can to make your body a great vessel to welcome a child and let your baby know that you love him/her and can't wait for him/her to get here! Oh, and of course stay with us here at the TWW as we all try to make it through all this waiting without going crazy. :-)

I'm right there with you...although I know I shouldn't worry, I still do. I am 39, my youngest children are 1 and 2 so I know it can't be that reduced ... right?? Up until this month we had been ntnp since July and I just feel like it should have happened by now... so this month I started obsessing.
Best of luck!

CyndiLoo...so sorry to hear about your loss. Are you being told to wait a month to try again? After my D&C I had to wait 3 months to GET a cycle...then was told to wait for 2 cycles to try again. it was so frustrating!

Sorry for the lapse.
I had been told to wait a month before trying again. I did not so I was pretty devastated when my AF showed up at 21 days past d&c. It really caught ne off guard. But I got into see an RE and had the whole battery of tests done, bloods, ultrasound, and everything came back normal. No answer as to why i keep losing pregnancies.
I did convince the doctor to put me on progesterone cream so im doing that this month, along with a slew of supplements.
I'm 4 dpo. We didn't have the most sex this cycle as everyone, including me and dh, got sick. Still, we got some swimmers in there and now I'm in the tww.
The cream is making me sleepy, have to pee a lot and generally feel off.

Anyone here still trying? Where are you in the process?

nothing. but I don't get discouraged about that.
I DO get discouraged when I see a temp drop and a BFN like this morning.

How long is your lp? Could that be an implantation dip?

it's only my second month charting. I Know it COULD be ID. I mean, it's 11dpo...and average is 6-12dpo...

I just really would like to see a freakin' BFP already! I got pregnant on the 2nd clomid cycle last time. In one month, that will have been one year ago. I'm just frustrated...

How are things going with you?

Hey,
That's so rough. I remember that long slog so well. I had secondary infertility between my two kids. It was 12 cycles, trying clomid and medicated IUIs and then I got pregnant spontaneously, had a chemical, and then got a sticky bean.
It could be implantation. Unfortunately, only tomorrow will tell, right? I hope it is!

I'm going nuts symptom spotting. I'm taking progesterone cream, hoping it will help guard against another miscarriage, and I think all the side effects of the drug mimic pregnancy symptoms. Fun stuff, huh!! I almost bought an FRER at the grocery store today but I didn't. I'm only 6 dpo and I honestly don't know if we had a good chance this month. Everyone was sick at ovulation, so we only bd'd once and then did home IUIs with my sons medicine dropper at ovulation!! :rofl: Ah, no shame......

still in the game for now. I think AF will come tomorrow...if not saturday.
If that little dip and the spotting I had is implantation, then I wouldn't see a positive until after then...so I will just wait until af comes. If she doesn't get here by monday, I'll probably test again then. I'm usually pretty regular ever since my D&C.
