Hard to believe but... (TW-bfp)

Hello ladies,

I tested today at 12DPO and got a faint line. Moving onto the rollercoaster of the next 3-4 months, because at this age (40 in 10 days), I know MC is a high probability.

Can a few folks take over the (bi?)weekly check-in thread renewal?

I hope I don't return here, but who knows... 

Wishing you all BFPs as soon as possible! For the record, it took me 9 well timed cycles, plus a weird anovulatory cycle in there that lasted 54 days...  This is the first cycle after I started CoQ10 - on your recommendation, so THANK YOU!

  • Also also can I ask what form of CoQ10? I get the less expensive one bc I have trouble with pills do get the gummies. Please keep us posted on your progress as I for one get hopeful from others’ stories.

    @Momifbysea I got the NOW brand Ubiquinol, 100mg, and took 4 a day on 80% of days (oops). I think it's been about 35 days since I started.
    Thank you for the well wishes!

    I should say the Ubiquinol pills are softgels, pretty easy to swallow.  I don't have issues with pills, although I do love my gummy prenatals which I also found thanks to you guys (Smarty Pants).

  • @marijaa333 I got KU at 39 and delivered at 40.  It was all natural, no high risk issues except age.  Very healthy as doc said it was textbook pregnancy.  He is normal 3 yr old now.  No issues with delivery either

  • Great to hear, thanks for the reassurance @Mack2342 ; ... fingers crossed...  Hopefully many of you follow and we can have a grad check-in thread soon!
