Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Age 45 BFP Naturally
Hello, I hope my story brings hope to everyone. I'm 45 and DH is 40. We've been ttc for almost 3 years. All the fertility tests for both of us were completely normal so the only factor was my age (old eggs). In the last year we did 8 IUI's with Femara or Clomid and trigger shot at the Kaiser REI clinic. It didn't work for us. Finally, my doctor tried to convince me to do IVF with donor eggs. The estimated cost was $30,000-$40,000. So, I looked into doing IVF with my own eggs in Mexico. We went to visit a clinic in Nuevo Vallarta called Liv Fertility Center. It was brand new, spectacular and at the beach, across from the Hard Rock Hotel! The total quote for IVF everything included was $7,000. So our plan was to go in June and stay for 21 days. But, BIG CHANGE OF PLAN. I kept hoping this cycle would be successful so I used the Clearable digital ovulation sticks. I kept getting the flashing happy face and it never turned solid. So we just BD every other day, while it was flashing. I wasn't very hopeful due to it never turning solid. However I did notice that I had much more CM since not taking the Clomid. I started doing the HPT on CD11 with the Dollar Tree test and there was a faint BFP. The next day my husband came home from work with the First Response 6 days earlier tests and they were positive too. Finally, I got a positive blood pregnancy test at Kaiser. We are so excited and still can't believe it!
