Hello. I post over on TTC 35+ board. I just turned 44 in May and MH and I are in the process of doing DE IVF. The tests and waiting list will probably take me into next May that is if all goes as planned and I will be 45 then.
Anyone here give birth around my age? Did you have a hard pregnacy being "older"? When my child graduates I will be 63? I'm totally freaking out about this. This is what I have wanted for a very long time but not sure if I can handle being an older mom. I have nightmares where my child is in elementary school and I'm wishing I never had him/her because I'm worn out. Sounds pathetic I know. I'm tired now working 11 hr days and my feet feel like I have arthriditis when getting out of bed. Eh...I just feel a mess.
Sorry for the bit of whining. I'm just scared....I guess that's normal? I feel like I've come this far meaning me talking MH into trying for a child that I shouldn't give up. Any thoughts to calm me down? Thanks for reading. Hope you ladies don't think I'm a nutcase...lol

Met with RE 4/11. 2 IUI's BFN. DE best option. Switched clinics to do "shared" program. Had to retake all tests and a mamm that put me behind and then on a DE waiting list for 12 months. Picked a donor!! (10/13/13) Got matched. Estimated transfer in December. After 2.5 years of patiently waiting I will finally cycle....can hardly believe it. DE cycle got cancelled. One of her tests came back positive. Waiting for another donor. Donor picked!! (1/18/14)
