TTC after 35

TTC suddenly on hold...vent

DH and I planned, saved and were finally ready to start officially TTC. Instead we found out that I have gallstones and might need surgery. This could postpone things for a while but I figured it was only a couple of months. Then I find out through the gallbladder testing that there is an abnormal lesion on my liver and that needs to be retested in 3 months. In other words, don't get pg. *sigh* I guess this is what people mean when they say "men plan, God laughs"

  • I'm sorry you're going through this.  I hope your liver is okay.  Good luck.

    Maybe, though, it's better for this to get caught early and cleared up so that you are all set to have a happy and healthy 9 months when you successfully conceive. 

    And this way, when you do start TTC, you won't be risking being 9 months pregnant in August!

    (I'm trying to think of positive aspects of all this.)

    I hope the lesion is nothing serious!

  • I'm so sorry about the lesion!!! I'm glad I got my GB out in August though. The pain was terrible and I was told no surgeon would touch me if I was PG (unless it was an emergency which carries it's own complications) so it was better to get it taken care of.
    Me:39 Dx LPD, Fibroid, AMA and all that goes with that. H:37 Dx low motility and low morphology. TTC since 3/12. Clomid 8/12 and 9/12: BFN. 11/12 on a break for Myomectomy sched. 11/26. Resume TTC early 2013.
  • Sorry you received bad news but your health is really important and hope in three months you get good news and can continue on your journey.
