My tips for the 40's girls like me

Postby nene2008 » Sat Feb 26, 2011 8:42 pm

HELLO EVERYONE!
I JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU GIRLS AT YOUR 40'S LIKE ME SOME HOPE.
I WAS TRYING TO HAVE ANOTHER BABY SINCE 2008 AND IN THAT YEAR I HAD 3 POSITIVE TESTS BUT AFTER 5 WEEKS THE TESTS WERE GETTING LIGHTER AND LIGHTER... AND PERIOD.... THIS SITE HELPED ME A LOT, THAT IS WHY I WANT TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK BECAUSE IN 2009 A HAD A BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL!!!!
SO, HERE'S WHAT I DID:
1 BABY ASPIRIN EVERYDAY
1 VITAMIN GERITOL COMPLETE
1 FOLIC ACID
AND ONCE YOU GET A POSITIVE TEST, 1 PROGESTERONE PILL A DAY FOR 30 DAYS, MY DOCTOR GAVE ME THE RX FOR IT, SHE SAYS: IT DOESN'T HURT AND IT MIGHT HELP, AND BELIEVE ME, IT HELPED!!! AND OF COURSE WHEN GET A POSITIVE TEST, ASK THE DOCTOR TO GIVE YOU THE PREGNANCY VITAMINS, THE TABLET IS SO BIG OMG!
LAST THING, OF COURSE, LOTS OF PRAYERS!
GOOD LUCK!
WARM REGARDS!
VAL.

Hi Val,
Congratulations!!!!
I had two tiny ones over 40 and found that zinc (15mg a day - usually in prenatals anyway, folic acid and vitex agnus-castus did the trick).
Your rx looks good though.
Hoping you're enjoying every minute withyour little girl,

Anyone trying CoQ10? I've been taking it since Sept 2010, did our 3rd IVF and so far we have 8 embies that are all progressing. Typically we'd have several die in the first 2 days, but we're now day 4 & all are growing.

I think the CoQ10 can be helpful, especially it seemed to improve cm quality the one time I tried it:) Good luck with the embies. Maybe you'll be able to freeze half for a later try if they keep doing so well.
Do check with your doctors about any supplements. I never had fertility treatment/IVF, just natural, the Vitex Agnus-Castus I took is very helpful with women in the 35-43ish age group but apparently doesn't go with hormonal treatments as it has hormonal effects itself (normalizes hormones in most women).
