TTC after 35

Just needing to vent.....haven't been here before but....

spent a lot of time on TTGP.

So after my daughter was born we had 4 m/c and a failed IVF with PGD (preimplantation genetic testing).  My DH had an initial appt with a urologist for a vasectomy as we were giving up......

But I figured one last hail mary play before we schedule his procedure.

Now I am terrified.  Had some signs that point to possible pregnancy and would love for this to happen but am scared of all the things that can (and have in the past) gone wrong.

Just needing to put it into writing....thanks for listening.

Re: Just needing to vent.....haven't been here before but....

  • Why did you do PGD - were you looking for anything particular?

    I am glad that we can be here so you can vent to, on others really understand the isues around IF except for us. GL and let's hope those signs are true and you already have a LO on board!

    Multiple ectopics, 2 failed IVF's
    IVF #1: Did not get to ET, embies all failed PGD (major chromosomal defects)
    IVF #2: We have 2 chromosomally perfect embies as a result of PGD (Boy/Girl) 1 failed the thaw (Girl) Transferred 1, yet ended as a c/p
    Thought it was the end of our TTC Journey 6/20/2012
    SHOCK BFP 9/28/2012: IT'S A BOY! and everything is normal !!!!!!

  • 3 of my m/c were tested and they genetic anamolies.  Basically my eggs created 2 different trisomies and turners syndrome (xo instead of xx or xy). Non repeatable but not viable.  Which is why we were going with just our little miracle instead of pursuing another round. 

    Implantation bleeding is normal  for me and I spotted over the weekend.  I hope it is a healthy little one but I am having bizarre dreams and my brain is so overwhelmed that my sleep is totally effed up. Add my mother's hip replacement in April and you'll understand my stress.

    I had implantation bleeding with my son, so now every time I spot before my period (the timing is the same due to my shorter LP) I get my hopes up. It's cruel.
