TTC after 35

I don't think I am going to get my birthday wish. :(

My temp is the highest it has ever been today at 15 DPO. I practically danced out of bed I was so excited!

I have been feeling crampy for 2 days with absolutely NO sign on AF..until today.  I think I just saw some color on the TP.  Crying

I understand I am old.  I accept that I have some IF issues.  But SERIOUSLY??? My chart has to get my hopes up SO high I might not survive the crash?  Not fair.

  • Siggy Warning

    I am so sorry, Llama.  I have been chart stalking you as well, and my heart sank the other day when your temp dipped.  I rejoiced when it went beack up.  I'm hoping and praying for you.

    Me 42, DH 34 - TTC #1 since June 2012.
    9/12 3-day testing: TSH 3.76, T4 Free 1.1, LH 6.1, FSH 7.4, Prolactin 9.0, Estradiol 56. 12/12 HSG done & my tubes are clear!! 1/22/13 3-day testing: TSH 6.2, FSH 7.7, AMH 0.86, Estradiol 54, Prolactin 10.5. Thyroid almost doubled (hmmm), started Synthroid 2/4/13 and also 15,000 of Vit D 1/wk. 2/26/13 RE says I am in great shape, but DH has MFI - extremly low count along with morphology & motility issues. RE said IUI would be a waste, that IVF with ICSI is what he thinks we should do. Insurance does not cover IVF.... :(

  • Very light spotting now.  It looks like AF is on the way...but why is my temp so high?  I have looked at pages of similar charts on FF today--all of them have after O temps rising steadily like mine.  Not one of them has a rise and AF on the same day.  Confused That little speck of hope is making me google every possible PG story involving high temps and spotting at 15 DPO.  I can't get it out of my head--may as well obsess right?

  • Until you are 100% sure it's AF I say obsess awayWink

    I'm pulling for ya!!!

    Me 39 & suspected PCOS, DH 42. Went off BCP when we got married in 11/11, seriously TTC since 3/12.  Six cycles of clomid = BFNs.  Suspected endometriosis & HSG showed both tubes blocked.  Sept 2013 IVF 5D transfer of two perfect embryos = BFN.  Started acupuncture and taking time off to drop some pounds & get healthier before FET in April 2014.
  • Llama,

    I so hope that you are wrong. Your chart is beautiful. I will carry the flame of optimism. I hope that there is no crash from your high hopes. You deserve a birthday BFP!!!  

  • Ticker warning...

    I am holding out hope for you and sending hugs your way!

    I would take back all the bad things I have said to the Universe over the last 3.5 yrs if I can follow in your footsteps.  :)  Thanks for the glimmer of hope.  

    Spotting is still very light but much more noticeable.  :(  I hope it stays light and goes away all together soon.  I want to be one of those PG stories!

  • Wishing the best for you, Llama.  Fingers and toes crossed!

  • I'm so sorry.  I was hoping for a bday bfp as well.  My temp was higher than usual for the past week, I thought I had some implantation cramping, then BAM my period started the day before my birthday.  It's so unfair.  I wish we didn't have to go through any of this.  Such a rollercoaster getting your hopes up then crashing back down.

    At this point, to try to stay positive, I am telling myself that I could still get pregnant in my birthday month, I would just get the bfp the month after.  I know it's grasping, but it's all I've got.  Great big hugs to you and hey, if your temps stay high maybe you could just be having implantation bleeding?
