Re-intro and TW (child mentioned) — The Bump
TTC after 35

Re-intro and TW (child mentioned)

since we are officially TTC again I thought I’d reintroduce myself. 

After 16 months of TTC at 35-36yrs old we got pregnant on our first try at IVF and had our son in December. The RE basically told us we’d have to do IVF to get pregnant again (we had zero embryos make it to freeze), but we can’t afford it, so we are hoping that having the baby “reset” my fertility so we can have another baby before I’m 40 (I just turned 38). 

I’m still waiting for my period to return, but I know you can ovulate before then, so we’ve upped our TTC game until I can start tracking O again. 
Me: 39 SO: 36

Dx: low progesterone, possible DOR - officially "unexplained"

  • I’m so so happy to see you my friend! You were like the first person I met on here! Although I kind of feel like I flunked a couple grades since I’m still where I was a couple years ago lol! I agree, you’re young and maybe you had a reset!

    @PoeMasque nice to meet you. Teenager me can't believe that 35 year old me is hoping for her period to return soon and wishing it on internet strangers as well.

  • Thanks ladies! I’m really glad this board is still going, it was really great to feel like other women out there knew how I felt and it was great to be able to cheer everyone on. 

    @Momifbysea I’m so glad to see a familiar name :) don’t feel like a failure! We were one embryo away from having no kiddo at all, I honestly feel like so much of IVF is less science and more luck.

  • @PoeMasque congratulations on the birth of your son!!! Hopefully this will reset things. Welcome back!! I tried 6 iui cycles with no luck my husband and I don't have coverage for ivf so we decided to stop treatments and just pray it will happen but I'm at peace if it doesn't .
