Pregnant after 35

Looks like I am joining you again :)

Hi ladies!  Well, we did our final IVF attempt in Feb, and it looks like I am lucky enough to be joining you again.  I know it's still very early, but I thought I would post here anyway.  I have been lurking over the last couple of months so I see your updates. Can't believe some of you are almost ready to give birth! Time flies unless you are the one going through it I guess.

I'm going for an ultrasound on Monday.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello and hope to be here for the long haul this time around :)

TTC since 3/2010. Me 41, DH-49. After 3 years, 6 IUIs and several IVFs we have finally have our beautiful baby girl, born on 11/7/13.

IVF #1 - ER 06/13/12 - 9 Eggs Retrieved - 4 ICSI'd - only 2 fert. 06/15/12 - 2DT - 3 cell & 6 cell with fragmentation. Beta 06/29/12 - IVF #1 = BFN. 07/20/12 - WTF Appt -Told by our RE to quit IVF. Second Opinion from RE is good. IVF#2 - November 2012. Estradiol Pills Started 11/6. Stims start 11/16. ER 11/26 - 7 eggs retrieved - all mature. 4 fertilized with ICSI. ET 11/29 Transferred 3 embryos. Beta is 12/10. 1st Beta 81 2nd Beta 160 and 3rd beta 360!!! First U/S 12/21/12 - We saw one beautiful gest. sac. 2nd U/S is 01/04/2013 - H/B 183 02/05/13 - NT Scan - everything looks good and IT'S A BOY!  Aiden was born 08/20/2013.
