TTC after 35

Very Cautious BFP

I have a BFP - but my history has led me to be a little more cautious.  This is pregnancy #4 since October. 

This is the first on Clomid (and DHEA) and my doc seems to think Clomid can help with egg quality - so we will see.

I have an appointment on August 11 - so until then it is a wait and see - I have lost the other 3 between 5 and 6 weeks - so I will be a little more optimistic after another 2 weeks!

And - I start on new job on August 15 - so much happening.  

I'm keeping everything crossed that this one works!

    Congratulations!!!  I know exactly how you feel, I got my BFP last Thursday and have my betas taken twice and it is increasing but I am way to nervous to even put up a ticker until my appt on August 11th!  Here's hoping both our appointments go awesome, we only have 2 weeks to go!

    Married 07/04/10 - Me 40 & DH 46 - Tried conceiving for 2 1/2 years, including IUI, but no luck. Were about to do IVF at the end of 2012, but my body started shutting down. Made the decision to have a hysterectomy in January 2013. Met an amazing little boy in July 2012 that needed a family & decided to move forward with adopting him. He has made our family complete & we are happier than we ever thought that we could be!
