Formal intro and nervousness — The Bump
TTC after 35

Formal intro and nervousness

Hi!  I've been lurking for a while and chimed in on a few posts here and there. I just turned 41 and have been trying off and on for a year. I've had all the preliminary testing done: day 3 bloodwork (amh is low); progesterone tests (low); fibroid; hsg (tubes clear); shg.  Dh's testing was done as well and was slightly low on one count, but not enough to need intervention. 

 My follow up with the re is Wednesday and I am really starting to get nervous. I'm worried that Ill be given very little hope of conceiving without ivf or donor eggs. I was doing ok just telling myself that what happens, happens. But now I'm starting to worry. 

 I know others are going through this as well so I just wanted to jump in and say hi.

  • Wishing you the best of luck!  My sister did IVF and she has 4 children through 3 implantations.  IVF is an amazing thing but I truly hope you don't need that kind of intervention!
