Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 40
I used to read this board for inspiration and promised myself I would add my story if I got my BFP. I started trying to conceive after I turned 39. After 8 months of trying and no success I started seeing a naprotechnology practitioner to assist with conception without IVF. After doing various blood tests it was discovered I had a luteal phase defect (inadequate progesterone production after ovulation). I was started on various supplements and medication (to enhance cervical mucus - vitamin B6, guaiphenesin, amoxil; to enhance ovulation - leterozole; to enhance progesterone production & implantation - HCG, then progesterone for the first 3 months of pregnancy). After only two months on this program I conceived my beautiful daughter. 9 months later a healthy baby girl at age 41. I am now trying for my second baby at age 42. I hope this gives others hope - it can be done.
