She did recommend a baby aspirin daily and said once I get a bfp she would start progesterone. The office also surprisingly called and gave me a referral for a reproductive endocrinologist yesterday. So I'm going to see them once I figure out what insurance pays for.

Word of caution - I don't get an lh surge if I take baby aspirin before ovulation. I don't know if I don't or do ovulate on it, but the surge isn't detected if it's there.

When does everyone start to poas? I'm about 8dpo and had two tests negative this morning and am going nuts. I can't wait another week. Am I crazy or does someone else do it this early?

I used to. Can't stand the negatives and obsessing anymore. I think I'm done trying. I finally got rid of the bv completely and now we're not getting along. It's been a rough month (who am I kidding - it's been a rough year or two!) as my bv came back with a vengeance after ovulation last month, I had some virus that made me hurt all over (but I'm a mom, so no slowing down), my second son graduated high school, we have been having money problems, and my husband travelling during baseball season. Life is just super hard right now and I can't handle more stress. I'm praying for you all, though, and will check in periodically.

I was going to write and say the same thing today! I got an evap line today so I'm obsessing more than normal. It's too hard. I just want to move on and live my life. There is so much more than all this. Good luck to you.

I had a hunch with that evap! My "evaps" have always been real lines. Congrats! Praying for you.

Well...I have a very faint line on a test today. I don't think this is good thing. I've had lines this faint ar 10 dpo but I think I'm probably 14 dpo. With all my other pregnancies that I tested early for (7 of the nine), lines showed up much earlier. I had a clear negative yesterday. I'll keep you posted, but I'm not hopeful.

Hello Everyone. I am new to the forum. I am 40 and ttc after 14 years. No problems that I know of except I had irregular periods that have lately regulated. I have remarried and just started ttc. I have started prenatals and am hoping it works. Im just concerned that its going to be a long wait due to my age and that its been 14 years since my last child. Good luck to everyone here.

You can do it! I've had three since I turned 40. Take ubiquinol, b6 and a b complex.
As for me...I was pregnant yesterday but I don't think I am today. Going to stop progesterone and let my period come.

Amylou, welcome. I agree - have hope! I am pregnant with #2 since 40. Momofnine I'm sorry to hear it looks like a chemical... I know that's so disappointing. Will you keep trying? I know you had mentioned maybe you were bringing this to an end on a recent post. I will miss you if you go!
