BFP at 40 years old!!!!

Postby ready4my1stchild » Sun Nov 24, 2013 12:40 pm

What I did differently this time:

(CD 1 - 13) - took multivitamin (Geritol multivitamin pill) plus 800 mcg of Folic acid (GNC) one pill each per day

(CD 14 - present) - prenatal vitamins (CVS brand). One per day.

BD'd three times (morning, afternoon & night) the day b4 I rec'd a +OPK. Merely a coincidence. Not something I planned at all.


I only noticed two early pregnancy symptoms:

1). Implantation bleeding 9 DPO (lots of EWCM w/a drop of pink in the middle) & 10 DPO (light brown).

2). Late AF.

We stopped preventing in August of this year. My Dr. Told me due to my age, if I didn't conceive in six months, we would look at other options. My cycles were really off and we weren't certain I was ovulating. I thought it was due to my age (which had something to do with it), but it was also the fact that my body fat % was too low. For over a year I was weight training, trying to get six pack abs for my 40th birthday. I got my body fat % down to 20%. I needed to get it to 19% in order to see my abs. Well, my crazy self didn't know that you need at least 22% body fat in order to ovulate. When I told my doc about my training goals, she told me to stop the strenuous exercising & increase my body fat to at least 25% in order to get my cycle back on track. I feel incredibly fortunate to get pregnant this fast at my age, after making those adjustments to my body fat %.
