TTC after 35

Belated Hanukkah/Early Christmas Present (bfp!!!!!)

Holy f'ing moses, after telling myself I wasn't going to test before Saturday morning, I broke down and FINALLY got my bfp tonight at 11dpo. I have been freaking out the past couple of days, thinking I might be, but terrified to test and find out I was wrong. This has been a long, emotional journey and I appreciate all of the support that I received on this board. I am cautiously optimistic, but having had a recent loss, I know that I am no where near out of the woods. I'll probably hang around and lurk for a while, until I feel confident about moving on. Please let this be a sticky bean!!!

FX'd that this is just the first in a string of holiday bfps!!!

    Married 3/14/14 to my wonderful wife, but her sperm count is rather low
    TTC with frozen donor sperm and science

    7 IUIs, 7 BFNs.
    2 IVF attempts, both cancelled and converted to IUI, both BFNs.
    Decided that my tired old ovaries are ready to retire.
    Next step- reciprocal IVF, using my wife's eggs, my uterus!  
    fresh 5 day transfer (2 embryos) 4/17/17- BFP! 
    Identical twins "due" 1/2/17 (but anticipated arrival sometime December)

  • Congrats! It's the most wonderful time of the year!
  • OMG Yay Congrats!
  • Thanks for all of the well wishes! I just checked in with my OB and they're scheduling my first ultrasound for just after the new year when I'll be around 6 weeks. I'll be sure to update after the u/s - hopefully we get good news!
