TTC 15 months
PCOS

Hi, everyone! I am new to this forum, but your stories have been so encouraging.
Here is my story: My husband and I were so blessed to have a baby girl together in 2013 when we were both 43 yrs old. I was diagnosed with PCOS the same day week I conceived her, so I had not even started Metformin treatment when I got pregnant naturally. Normal healthy pregnancy except for gestastional diabetes that I controlled with diet. Natural drug-free delivery at 38 weeks to a healthy 8lb 3oz girl.We would love to have a baby brother or sister for her. We thought we would conceive quickly after she was born. Now over a year later I am worried that we are not going to get another miracle. Not doing any medical treatment...just vitamins and supplements and trying to improve our overall health. I am currently in the TWW, but no symptoms at all so far this month.:(

I'll jump in here since I am in the 40+ age group... Most of my info is in my siggy.

I've been visiting the boards for about 2mo now. Still trying to figure all this TTC stuff out after 25+ years of actively TTA, so, I've been having some pretty massive anxiety (which probably is not good for a TTC effort). If we don't get a BFP this month, I'm actually planning to take next month off... I need a break from all this stress (and it's only been 3mo! Ack!), and we have an international trip planned in 6wk--at my age, I don't want to find out I'm pregnant less than a week before we leave on a trip out of the country where access to medical care might be limited...
me: 41yo
DH: 42yo
married 11yrs, together 16 and just decided to start trying...

TTC#1 cycle 3:
6/10/14 CD1
6/29/14 CD20 ovulation
7/7/14 (8dpo) BFP
7/9/14 (10dpo) beta#1 hcg: 34.5 progesterone 20.8
7/11/14 (12dpo) beta#2 hcg 139
7/30/14 early u/s 6w5d HB 121

Hello, my name is Irina and hubby is Ian. This is our first month TTC after a tubal reversal. I have really enjoyed reading so many of your journeys on this board and so many have brought tears to my heart.
I am already so blessed with 3 handsome young men ages 19, 15, and 14 from my first marriage. I finally married the man of my dreams who happens to be 10 years younger with no children of his own.
After having my tubal ligation reversed at the beginning of this month we are off to the race against the clock. My husband works away for 2 weeks and then home for 2 so this TTC is going to be tricky.
Wishing everyone blessings here and I look forward to getting to know you.
:)
I'm 40 :) DH is 30 (marriage #2 he has no kids)
4 M/C's
3 DS's ages 19,15,14 (marriage #1)
Tubal Ligation 2000
Tubal Reversal September 05, 2014
Graves Disease since 2009

hi there! I'm new to two-week wait just looking for some understanding women :)

I'm Sarah, I'm 41, and my partner's name is Marcus, he's 40 -- we've been together for less than six months but, given my age, we're both pretty sure the time for dawdling is over. I'm divorced and want a chance to have a baby with someone truly engaged in me & babyhaving. He always wanted to raise a child or two and never had the right relationship until now. I have three boys, 7, 9 and 12, and he has helped several lesbian women conceive so we don't have any fertility concerns other than age. We've been TTC for the last two cycles.

I'm taking two supplements -- Ovaboost and FertilityAid -- and he's taking a motility supplement (though I doubt he needs it, my eggs are the bottleneck). I'm charting BBT and other than that, we're just trying to eat well and I'm doing a lot of meditation and such.

I should have ovulated on the 24th but my temperature didn't spike; but we've been sleeping all kinds of crazy hours the past few days so I'm not sure if I can trust BBT.

here's hoping this is the one :)

Hi, I am 45 and just got dh to agree to one more.. I have 8 children ages 19,17,14,12,10,8,7, and 5.. We stopped when I turned 40. I never even thought about how difficult it might be to start trying again. I also never lost my weight after #8 and have only gained to where I am very overweight... So I am excited to be here to find support that I know I will not find anywhere else. My dh and I have been married 24 years and our oldest was married last summer. All of the kids are on board and would love to have another baby in the house. My first question would be to ask what kind of supplements and suggestions for better chances for egg health and general fertility! Thank you!!

Heather/Paul
43/45
Been together 18 yrs.
We have a boy, 16, and a girl, 15.
TTC for 3 months

We have kicked around the idea of having another child for the last 6ish years, probably shouldn't have kicked it around so long...LOL! We just started on our journey in January. So far we've done Letrozole, 12.5 mg, cd 3-7 in February (realized at the u/s that there were uterine polyps so those were removed late Feb.) and again cd 3-7 in March followed by Ovidrel shot cd 11, 3/29, and had our first iui today, 3/31. DH sperm count, motility, and all markers are off the charts good, my AMH levels are that of someone 15 years younger and I had 5 follicles on cd 11; 20, 20, 18, 18, 16 mm each. The only med I'm taking is a prenatal vitamin and DH is taking a multivitamin and a large prescription dose of Vitamin D due to a deficiency.

Looking for anyone in a similar situation that has successfully conceived or can give us some hope/direction. We really have no idea what to expect or know anyone at all that's started down this road past 40. We aren't telling anyone at this time because...A. most everyone we know will think we're crazy and/or have negative things to say; B. we want no outside pressure, and C. if it doesn't work out for us, we'd like to not have to explain. We have been blessed with 2 beautiful children already and we would be ecstatic for more but definitely appreciate what we already have been given!

Hi everyone! So many boards, it's hard to know which one to post on. I chose this one, even though I'm 39, because I'm well past the "TTC in our 30's" board. LOL
I've been on the TWW site since, I think, last summer. I'm a little over 3 months out, since my ectopic rupture and surgery. So I'm very eager to get started again.
I'm on my two week wait now... Fingers crossed.
Good luck to all of you!
