I'll confess too — The Bump
TTC after 35

I'll confess too

1. Our TTC window is next spring. But if DH said lets try now, I'd be MORE than happy to toss those pills and go for it. I'm ready now!

2. I'll be 35 this week, and I want to have 2 kids and be done by 40. Deep down, I really just want to get pg with twins so I can have my 2 by 40 and be done with it.

    Forget deep down, on the surface, I would be ecstatic to have a "2-fer" and get twins-- a boy and a girl! I know it's less healthy and higher risk, but I don't care! I could have both my kids and be done with one pregnancy! Especially since it appears it will take at least a year to get pregnant with each one, otherwise!

    LOL I say deep down because I've only told DH that I want twins. I don't discuss TTC with my mother because she's been on my case since we got married with her snide remarks and comments about us not having kids yet.

    I imagine my ovaries rejoicing when I go off the pill, having a party, and dropping a couple eggs at once to celebrate. :)

  • LOL I think we all have wished for that at some point!  I know I did with my first pregnancy.  But lo, it was not to be for me, doesn't mean it can't happen for you though!  Now that we are working on #2 though, I have the opposite hope - please no twins lol!!

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.

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!

    I triple this!  DH and I are really hoping for twins so we don't have to worry about getting pregnant even older.

  • I'll confess too, I would be tickled to have twins-although I know many, many, many people who would think I was crazy if we told them that.  I have raised an only child once (my son is 19) and really want siblings (not to just have my older child, and a child who will likely be raised along with my son's future children), but not thinking that we will be able to afford more than one cycle of DE IVF.  We will transfer 2, and any frosties, and then we are done.....no matter the end results.  I understand the high risk PG with twins, but once we potty train-want to be done!
