Confession... — The Bump
TTC after 35

Confession...

I've been opening the pregnant > 35 thread daily, not to read posts or anything, just to remind myself that it does happen, and not everyone > 35 is automatically barren. 

:S :S :S I think hitting the year mark is taking its toll.

  • I've been reading the pregnant>35 (also 1st trimester) more lately, I DO need some proof that it CAN happen.  That board gives me some hope...I also like driving myself crazy with comparing their s/s to my own. :)

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!!!

  • Same here...I check it daily (at least) and love to see the TTC35 graduates over there!  The "new member" posts are a double edged sword though... the ones that got pg quickly and easily give me hope that I am not as old as I think I am but they also make me want to smack people.  Life can be so unfair.
