Cycle #5 and turning 45 this month

Postby Mamamall2B » Wed Jan 21, 2015 10:08 am

Hello ladies! I have been hanging with some amazing women in a different buddy group but wanted to come join you amazing ladies that are in my age boat! Here's a condensed version of my story:

Married the man of my dreams in July. I am divorced and he lost his wife to cancer about 3 years ago. Love love love him! We found out two weeks before wedding that I was pregnant. Had planned on trying after honeymoon but happened right after stopping BC. Sadly we lost the baby in August. So we are ttc again! This is our 5th cycle after D&C. I am going to be 45 on the 25th and he will turn 46 in April. All our friends think we are nuts to start all over again. Between the two of us we have six kids. He has 3 boys (26,19 and 15) and I have 2 girls and a boy (17, 15, 12). But we so desperately want to have OUR baby.

I have been temping and using OPKs since we started. This month I have brought out the supplement guns and am hoping that may be the missing link. Along with going with the SMEP plan rather than everyday!

Anyway, just wanted to find some 40+ chicks to ride on this crazy train with!

Welcome Carole!! This is a great site and you will find tons of support :) My story in a nutshell....44, hubby is 29 and we have been trying for almost two years with not even a day being late, ugh!! He has low sperm count and motility and of course I have "mature" eggs :) Tried IUI twice without success and our new fertility doc finally gave me the news that with my eggs, it probably won't happen. (Oct. 2014) At that time Casey said absolutely no to donor eggs, it would be us or nothing. I totally understand your wanting your "together" baby, I have 3 kids already, but of course it would be amazing to have a little "us". He seemed completely resigned to it not happening, but then last night he throws out that now he would really like to try with donor eggs, so we are on the roller coaster again, but in a whole different way! Just gathering information today and thought I would pop on here to see what was new! Again, welcome!!

Hi there. I am also turning 45 this year and TTC. My wife and I both tried IUIs with no success and ended up doing a reciprocal IVF where we use her (younger) eggs and I will carry. We are currently nearing the end of our cycle and plan to have her egg retrieval this coming Sunday 01/25/14 then transfer embryos to me 3-5 days after.
We haven't told too many people we are trying, not quite ready to hear their opinions :)
We used up all our funds this last year with all our procedures so most likely this will be our only attempt with IVF.
I hope you don't mind me jumping into your conversation, I really just love reading your stories and I am praying for great outcomes for us all. These boards and messages help keep me positive.
