TTC after 35

In Shock and Completely Numb (BFP)

After my negative test last weekend, I stopped testing and waited for my temp to drop and CD1 to come.   I told DH what was happening Tuesday and he was very supportive.  I had a bunch of Wondfo OPKs but only 2 Wondfo HPT tests left, so yesterday I used an OPK  and got a positive.  This morning no temp drop and no period, so I broke down and used my last FRER because it was almost 1 week later and no period.  Holy Shit!!!!!  Two solid lines.  I opened a Wondfo HPT to see what was going on and got a BFN.  I guess I had a very bad batch of wondfos.  I should have known, when in doubt, confirm with a FRER!  I showed DH and he was happy, but cautious.  He said we could do a happy dance and frequently discuss it after the dating U/S.   I'm in total agreement as we don't want to get our hopes up to be let down again.  The plan is not to say anything to anyone until the new year.  I will probably use my digital at the end of next week for extra reassurance. 

If things progress in the next few months, then this will be the last thread I start and for the first time in 15 years, I will not be in my classroom to greet my students on the first day of school.   I almost wish I could still be blissfully unaware so I wouldn't be freaking out about every cramp, pull, or tug and I could be here a few weeks longer.  Pgal brain is already setting in and I am sorta terrified.  I am still unsure about posting this because of my post at the beginning of the week and I apologize if anyone is hurt or offended for a BFP post after posting about a loss less than a week before, but I have been so blessed to have the support of you wonderful ladies and would have been lost this week without you.  I am tearing up just typing this.  Thanks for the laughs, hugs, tears, and love.  I will lurk, but will miss you all.  I hope to see BFPs in the coming weeks and more August soon to be mommies joining me.

    Congrats on the BFP!!!

    Sorry you're terrifed but it comes with the territory unfortunately. Happy and healthy 9 months to you! *hug*
    I am not sure how to say this without getting a "solicitation" warning so I guess I just say that I am not longer active on THIS site.

    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!

    Woohoo! So happy for you! Can't wait to see all of your graduate updates. :)
    me:41   dh:43 
    Off Mirena Nov 2013, On Nuvaring end of Jan, Back off Sept 2014.  Never ending cycle starting end of Sept... 
    11/14 Provera failed... cycle continues 
    12/14 High FSH (57 "midcycle")  OBGYN had no clue... about anything 
    01/15 More lab results coming back from RE. U/S showed small (1")cyst on left ovary, thin lining, and couldn't locate right ovary so  possibly straight to DE and IVF 

    Occassionally mess with the chart below to see "what if" and learn (not to make it pretty but because FF stays drunk with me).
