TTC after 35

Oh wow... (BFP mentioned)

So, I've been quiet while waiting for my first ultrasound.  Things have been going very well.  I even POAS again - because I never thought I'd see a stick change color for me.

Went to the RE for my first ultrasound.  RE lets out an excited squeak when the image shows up on the screen.  TWINS!!!  Both look health and measure perfectly.  Heart rates are also good.  We're just stunned, blessed, grateful, and a bit in shock.

Thank you ladies for all your support over the years.  I wish you all the best of luck.  I will lurk here and cheer everyone on!

? TTC#1 since 2/10 ?

DX: Me - Slight androgen PCOS Him: Mild MFI Official DX: Unexplained IF

2/11 - 8/11 - 6 cycles Femara (5mg) + TI = BFNs

2/12 - 5/12 - Femara(5mg) + IUI = BFNs

6/12 and 8/12 - Femara (7.5mg) + IUI = BFN :( - considered IUI#3 and 4 by RE

    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.... :(
  • Oh my goodness!! Congrats to you!!! How exciting :)

    ME:45 MH:43 DE IVF 2014
    Met with RE 4/11. 2 IUI's BFN. DE best option. Switched clinics to do "shared" program. Had to retake all tests and a mamm that put me behind and then on a DE waiting list for 12 months. Picked a donor!! (10/13/13) Got matched. Estimated transfer in December. After 2.5 years of patiently waiting I will finally cycle....can hardly believe it. DE cycle got cancelled. One of her tests came back positive.  Waiting for another donor. Donor picked!! (1/18/14) Hoping for an April transfer. No more setbacks please!!
