TTC after 35

Results are in...

In light of some of the not-so-positive news, I totally will not be upset or offended if any of you choose to ignore this post.

Okay, so I have a low positive-- 13-- which totally makes sense because I am only 2 days post implantation dip (the earliest detectable day). I have to go back on Friday morning to take another beta to see if my number has increased significantly enough to say it's a real, promising pregnancy that might stick. 

With my age, I'm a little concerned about being able to carry a baby to term-- as well as have a healthy baby-- but my RE didn't seem all that concerned and I'll most likely go on progesterone supps, so that will help my uterus be hospitable.

I am tentatively happy about this, but won't announce anything to my family until our combined birthday-father's day-July 4th celebration, and then I'll only tell a couple close friends until after the first trimester... Then I'll start announcing to others. 

I hope I can still hang out here and give support to you all-- I feel like there is no way I can stay away from all of you to share the highs and lows. There is a huge part of me that feels that-- as thrilled as I am to be graduating possibly from here-- there are so many of you who have gone through this for so much longer and with so many more setbacks and you deserve this more than I do...

I want to see all of us on the same/other side as soon as possible!

  • Congrats!  This sounds like positive (literal, but cautiously positive) news, so maybe I missed something that makes it not-so-positive?  Fingers crossed that your numbers continue to go up on Friday.

  • Congrats!  I totally missed your 1st post and had to go back and see what this was all about.  I am so very happy for you.  :)

    And it makes my heart ache a little because I told myself that if YOU got pg right after having the HSG then I need to have it..but I am not going to be able to... sigh.  Maybe I need to re consider.  

    Please continue to update us on your progress!  I love to see one of the regulars graduate to PG35!

  • That's the best news I've heard all day!!!
    Me 39 & suspected PCOS, DH 42. Went off BCP when we got married in 11/11, seriously TTC since 3/12.  Six cycles of clomid = BFNs.  Suspected endometriosis & HSG showed both tubes blocked.  Sept 2013 IVF 5D transfer of two perfect embryos = BFN.  Started acupuncture and taking time off to drop some pounds & get healthier before FET in April 2014.
  • Congratulations Daniele!!! I hope this is your sticky baby!!! And you had better hang out a while and keep us updated.....I would miss your posts, your a hoot! I am very happy for you and your DH.  Was he with you when you tested??

  • I am so pleased to hear this.  A 13 this early is a great number.  My fingers are crossed that you numbers keep doubling.  I am fairly confident they will.   

    You're still in a young enough age group to statistically be successful (Actually who cares about statistics, you are not a number) so don't worry overly too much until you have a reason to worry. 

    I'm not announcing anything until I start showing, which may not be until 20 weeks or further.  Mostly because I don't want work to know until I am ready to tell them. 

    So happy for you.

  • That's wonderful news! Do not be concerned about increased risks your really not that much different than any other pregnant lady, you'll be fine! Now I might have to get DH on board to do it everyday next month, he's not going to be happy but I think you've presented a pretty good arguement for it!

    Good Luck on Friday!

    Me 38 MH 41 - TTC since June 2010 - dx with Severe MFI. Straight to IVF with ICSI. IVF #1 - ER 06/13/12 - 9 Eggs Retrieved - 4 ICSI'd - only 2 fert. 06/15/12 - 2DT - 3 cell & 6 cell with fragmentation. Beta 06/29/12 - IVF #1 = BFN. 07/20/12 - WTF Appt -Told by our RE to quit IVF. Second Opinion from RE is good. IVF#2 - November 2012. Estradiol Pills Started 11/6. Stims start 11/16. ER 11/26 - 7 eggs retrieved - all mature. 4 fertilized with ICSI. ET 11/29 Transferred 3 embryos. Beta is 12/10. 1st Beta 81 2nd Beta 160 and 3rd beta 360!!! First U/S 12/21/12 - We saw one beautiful gest. sac. 2nd U/S is 01/04/2013 - H/B 183 02/05/13 - NT Scan - everything looks good and IT'S A BOY!  Aiden was born 08/20/2013.

    IVF #2 is in progress.  ER was 05/12/14 - 11 eggs retrieved, 8 fertilized with ICSI.  ET was 05/15/14 - we transferred 3 embryos as we did on the cycle my son was conceived.  We were able to freeze 3 embryos. Beta is scheduled for 05/26/14.  1st beta - 111.  2nd beta - 159 didn't double :( 3rd beta Friday 5/30) - not a lot of hope left. Beta # 3 is 247 - probably ectopic.  Beta # 4 is 813 - possibly vanishing multiple sydrome?  06/05/14 - 5w4days - first U/S - we see a gestational sac and yolk - still have hope!  06/17/14 - 7w1day - U/S and saw and heard the heartbeat - Finally!  06/27/14 - 8w4days - Baby and heartbeat look and sound great :)  EDD 02/01/14 and It's a boy!
