Congrats, ContactMaya on your healthy baby!! I found your 2011 thread "43 & Pregnant" and hoped I'd see this success story when I viewed your more recent posts!
I am 43, single and plan on TTC next month using ICI or IUI. I feel I've lived a healthy life. Never had any problems with Pap tests, stds, cysts or anything else. My mother first conceived at 35 then again at 37. I think she drilled it into my head to WAIT to have kids and "live your life." Well, I did all that but now in 40's, finding a BF/husband wanting to conceive is like searching for the Holy Grail. With some recent life changes I said NOW!
I get my "3 day test" results next week which will advise on ovarian reserve, FSH, etc. An OB/Gyn yearly visit next week as well.
I'm praying to not have to do a huge amount of IUI/ICI cycles as I have to pay out of pocket for each. ($800 sp w delivery and $200 midwife). Any IVF necessity and my dreams will be blown out of the water.
I am taking prenatal vitamins. They were nauseating at first! Then chose to take 1/2 in AM and 1/2 in PM and problem solved!!!
I plan to taper off RX meds. Trying to get my ducks in a row for my mid-October IUI/ICI. Is there anything else I should be doing??? Comments welcome!!
