post #101 of 407
I'm actually inclined to think that it varies from practice to practice. Though I did read in a magazine, ahem, for expectant women over 40--Plum?--that "45 is the new 35."

You can add me, too. I will turn 48 in a few weeks. We have two daughters ages 5 and 7.

Hi
I just found this thread (well, the new one), so I want to join in!
I'm 41, and am the birthmom of a dd who is 21 (she was placed for adoption as an infant) and have two ds's at home, one just turned 4 (on the 4th) and the other one is 6 months old today.
Yesterday ds 1 asked if he could have a little sister, but I'm not sure we're ready to deal with that!

We are currently TTC a younger brother or sister for Kevin. I conceived Kevin naturally, our second cycle trying, and he was born about 2 months after my 44th birthday.

That's great you conceived naturally at 43!! I've also been pregnant three times (first month trying) over 40, although two ended in m/c. I'm not giving up though and definitely don't listen to the grim statistics about over 40 fertility rates. Right now there are 3 or 4 47yo's at my OB's office that conceived naturally.

Karen, here's some positive baby vibes comin' your way...:

Thanks! I was talking to my OB the other day and he told me that his partner just delivered a healthy baby girl whose Mom was 52! I KNOW I have some good eggs left somewhere in me!

EXACTLY that's just what I think too
post #113 of 407
Yes I've also been lurking in the May DDC. I kept meaning to post somewhere but seems like everytime I get both hands free I can't think of anything to say. I was happy to find this group though since this time round I do feel tired and old Im hoping it was just first trimester stuff and Im still nursing. We were quite suprised by this pregnancy and are finally feeling like its going to stick around.

Be and congratulations

I took natural trouche progesterone this last time, it worked too. I had the Hcg and prog test every week starting at 4wks and it increased from 11 - 20-something before I had a m/c. I'm pretty sure the m/c was chromosomal though nothing to do with prog. I've read so many positive stories about older women taking prog. during the first tri. So good for you Are you seeing a midwife or OB?

Here's some good baby vibes for a sticky bean... :

Wow! welcome being, athansor, Verygoddess, kbhlmh and Treasuremapper!
post #119 of 407
Thanks for such a warm welcome!This is the first pregnancy I've taken progesterone -originally prescribed by midwife for"luteal phase defect" The data is mixed /veiwpoints controvertial w respect to prescibing to" older "moms who have had one or more early miscarriages...but I had good results taking it to alleviate severe pms due to fibroids in my 20's.I am currently seeing an o.b at an all women's type practice ...She's aware and supportive of my birth plan =natural w/ minimal med. intervention & my doula on board....
I am concerned and sad .I started spotting =light last night -light -some cramping =menstral like w/ some back pain not identical to amount of bleeding & pain as last m/c...
light spot now only when I wipe .spoke w/ Dr. on call who said I could come in for U/s blood test yada yada -thing is u/s wouldn't tell me much no heartbeat at 5.6 wks etc..I am opting to wait for scheduled u/s on Nov. 24.unless I miscarry b4 that.I'm going to put myself on restricted duty-hopefully dd will be obliging her father is working.
"sticky dust" donations welcome.what will be will be and I will try to accept and be at peace with what is.

This group is growing! Anyone deal with hot flashes and menopause while still nursing. I am 47 and still nurse my 3yoDD. She has food allergies so I am letting her wean when ready. My sister is an OB and has searched for info on breastfeeding through menopause, but can't find any!
