TTC after 35

Confession (Warning: BFP)

Sooooo I have been debating about announcing this, but I've been pregnant for 10 days. First beta was last Wednesday, 2nd was Friday and it BARELY doubled (technically it was just shy of doubling-- from 60 to 119). Because I had a loss last time, I'm still not going to assume this is for real until we hear a heartbeat on May 30th. 

I figured I should announce though, because I probably should really move along to the PG > 35 board. And I didn't want anyone to check out the link to my chart and say "What the hell?!?" Plus, I have a terrible poker face-- even over the internet-- and I couldn't bring myself to answer the weekly check-in question with an outright lie about where I am in my cycle. 

So all I can say is that I did not come back to this board thinking I was going to get a BFP on my first (albeit completely wonky) cycle after having my dd because my first time took so long and I fully expected it to take close to a year to get KU again. 

I hope I don't have to come back to this board after May 30th, and I really really hope to see you all on the PG > 35 board. I wish everyone the best of luck and the fertility of a young rabbit. And of course: peace, no matter how the journey turns out for you all.

    I had noticed that you had been quiet, but the whole board has been quiet.

    Have a beautiful and peaceful pregnancy. It was a pleasure getting to know you.

  • Wow that is awesome news, congrats!  
    TTC#1 since Aug 2013, I'm 37, DH 41.  
    Maya Arvigo Abdominal massage (daily self care), plus TTC meditations.
    I'm very sensitive to diet (gluten, avoid processed foods) and environment. Have a history of inflammation and tendinitis before going off gluten in 2009.  
    July 2014 - RE Visit #1: Eggs look good, Endometrioma on R ovary, HSG showed blocked R tube close to ovary. DH SA normal 
    DX: Endometriosis probably the IF cause and gunking up tubes.  Since egg reserve is high, RE says I can wait a couple months and then get laproscopic surgery to remove endo & clear tube.  If that doesn't help then move to IVF. 
    Dec 2014 - Saw new RE - does not recommend surgery on tube as it isn't likely to help.  Doubts I have endometriosis.  My endometrioma shrunk to neglible size (yay!) 
    Seriously considering IVF in March/April
    12/17/14 - Natural BFP! 
  • That's amazing. I am so happy for you. Please let us know how it goes on the 30th. It's nice to hear the good endings sometimes. Best if luck to you.
