Intro — The Bump
TTC after 35


I don't know if I belong here.. But I'm 38 and TTC thru IVF I'm starting my second round of IVF as of today I had my appt with RE today and meds have been ordered.. My first IVF at 36 was a success I have a 20 month old son.. I'm just really nervous this time around because I'm older and last IVF I didn't have any eggs that could be frozen and only 7 were retrieved.. Anyone else going thru IVF?

Re: Intro

  • Welcome, let's hope your IVF works again. I just finished a cycle that failed, 36 years old too. I have a dd who is 26 months thru IUI. 


    Best of luck
