Pregnant after 35

Ready to Introduce Myself

Hi ladies,
For those of you who don't know me, I was a regular on the TTCAL board since April. My info is in my siggy but I will provide additional detail. I married later in life (39) and my DH and I had been TTC since our wedding back in June 2012. I immediately started seeing an RE, and did 5 medicated cycles with Femara and 5 IUIs (3 with injectables). After a lot of disappointment and irritation with that RE, I switched to a new facility in July.  I knew I couldn't waste anymore time, given that my odds were only 20% with IVF, so that is what I did. And here I am today, at the ripe young age of 42 (recently turned this month), KTFU with a singleton (aka Sloopy). I had my first 5 week u/s to see the gestational sac today. My beta was 1148. So, here I am and I'm damn glad, humbled and thankful to be here. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you!

PS I cheated and copied this intro from the Pregnant after a Loss board. :)
