Baby and Becca: Thx for your kind words. I don't know if finishing a full month on Ovaboost adjusted my cycle somehow... oh well... unfortunately, I don't think I will get anymore chances to try since things are so rocky with the guy now... Life is just so full of "yuck"!

HI Everyone,
I am new to this forum. I am 44 years old, and have one daughter I conceived a few months before my 40th birthday, after TTC for 2 years. We have been trying since I was 41 for #2. WHen my daughter was 15 months, I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks, when I was 41. When I was 42, nothing. At age 43, I had 2 chemical pregnancies which both ended a few days after my bfp (sucks). I am not giving up ! I really feel a need for support and women who know what I am going through, as its hard for most people to relate. THey all tell me to be happy with what I have. I am SO grateful for my daughter, that is not the issue. Its actually one of the reasons why I want another baby so much.

I haven't tried any IVF, and don't think I could do it ( needle - phobic). I did go to an RE for testing about 5 months ago. My bloodwork results were promising, FSH was 5.7, and antral follicle count was 14 (total). My RE said everything looked good except my eggs are old. According to OV kits, I do ovulate every month and am pretty regular.

We are doing everything we can naturally - I have been off caffeine (except chocolate) for over a year, also no alcohol for over a year, and now I am trying to cut down on my sugar. I got a high powered blender and we drink green veggies with fruit smoothies daily. I also take Wheat Grass at the beginning of the month - af til ovulation. 2 months ago I started adding Maca to my regimen daily, all month (Choca-maca is my new coffee substitute). This has REALLY helped my PMS, which was getting bad with insomnia, and sweating at night. THese symptoms are gone now.

Anyways, I just wanted to connect with all of you ladies TTC and share in this journey. I am hopeful and optimistic for all of us!
