So I went to visit my SIL/BIL and their new baby in the hospital yesterday. It did not go well as she was too tired and stressed out for visitors and my MIL (her's too) didn't have the sense to just leave her alone. My BIL had invited us for a visit, but obviously hadn't cleared it with his wife. She also over 40 and this is her first child.Ms. GB:
I'm thinking about you too. How many frozen embryos do you have? Are they already in a local clinic or are they in San Diego? Hopefully you won't need to use them anytime soon, but it must be a comfort knowing that you still have good options available.
Sorry about the BFN. Don't apologize for venting, that's what we're here for.
Sorry to hear about your BFN too. I've never used OPK's, but I think I've heard that they aren't so accurate for woman over 40. Anyone know more about this?
isn't around so much these days, I will pick up the praising of Radine Lewis's book "The Infertlity Cure" to the new ladies. (Hope you don't mind VM
). There's a great chapter with advice for woman over 35 TTC. I know VM credits her successful pregnancy at 43 (after 2 m/c) largely to this book. I also followed Randine Lewis' advice and after almost 2 years TTC, 2 IVF's (with poor response), one chemical pregnancy and one m/c at 10.5 weeks I am currently 36 weeks pregnant. Oh and my DH's sperm had <1% forward motility. There's also a chapter about getting the swimmers up to par. I can't recommend this book highly enough!
