I am visiting Mothering and TTC threads after years away. I'll be 40 in one month and gave up on "really" trying a long while back as we were sure we were no longer fertile after all. (We tried for a few years after a VR.) We were still vaguely hopeful but not giving the possibilty real thought after a long emotional roller coaster.

I feel oldish but think I'm pg after all this time. But then again it would not be the first time I was wrong if not. We would have children 22 years apart if so--our youngest is now 13. Although joyful I also have a crazy mix of uncertain feelings as well.

I've been reading old threads here to help process, and seeing the stories happy and sad here is so helpful. Although I see the boards are much less active than they usef to be I wanted to sort of join and say hello.

Red face

Hi all- just wanted to introduce myself after binge reading this entire thread (yes, all 32 pages)! I am 44, and DH and I have decided to try for a baby. I have 2 from a prior marriage- ages 25 and 22, he has none. I have wanted a baby with him for the last 10 years or so, but he wasn't on board until now. I just quit BCPs, and am in the TWW, CD 19. Our BDing was about as spot on as you can get, so we will see. This is my first time actively trying to get pregnant, so new to the whole charting thing. I am currently taking Maca, prenatals, Vit D (I know I am low), was taking EPO for days 1-14, prenatal DHA, and folic acid. I have also started baby aspirin as I have read that it helps with implantation. And I have been doing acupuncture. I was wondering if I was going to ovulate since so recently coming off BCPs, but according to my temps, it looks like I may have on CD17. Waiting for a third day of elevation to be sure. So encouraging to read the positive outcome stories on here- I have high hopes. Both DH and I are in excellent health, take no meds for anything, and we both work out 4 days a week. I am generally a very calm, non- anxious person, so I am hoping that helps. The one thing I am concerned with, is DH said if I miscarry, he is not going to want to try again because he wouldn't want to put me through that. So thinking if I do fall pregnant, not telling him until I know it is sticky. Wishing everyone luck and baby dust!!!

I wasn't PG after all, but we decided to officially try for 6 months. We started TTC a long time back (2009) and gradually gave up but this little surprise-maybe-bfp-that-wasn't last cycle inspired us to dive in.

I'm trying to tidy up my bad health habits now and I just set back up a chart on FF to track temps.

Hello Foodie and Polishrose! I had to binge read this thread last week too, and a few others. Read some that I remember full of moms I remember whose babies are growing up now for sure!

HI,
Wow, it has been a while since I logged in here lol.
I am a homeschooling mom of 3 and the youngest is almost 7 in 2 month and oldest is 13.
We have tried for 4th for a while a few years ago and nothings happened and I thought I gave up.
I will be 45 next spring and past a few months, I'm thinking about 4th. Would it be too risky? Am I being crazy? I have one daughter and she is keep asking another girl since she is the only one.
We also have thought about adoption for a while (like 10 years) that if God permits, we are open to it. However with costs and time it takes to actually finalize adoption, I am thinking maybe it is not a good idea.
Also recently I have been having dreams about holding a baby, raising a baby or having twin babies. I think I need to decide if we want to try for 4th. Has anyone had babies after 45? Most people would think we are crazy and too old to have another newborn. I know we will not get any support from our families. I just want to let this out and get some feedback from like minded ladies. Thank you.

I have no idea how to tell how crazy is too crazy or how risky is too risky. I have seen quite a few stories online of women 45+ conceiving naturally, but overall there is a definite decrease in fertility. I think the bottom line is whether you will enjoy spending your years mothering another child and can handle those responsibilities. My husband is already 50 now so we thought a lot about our future ages with another younger child. And our youngest daughter is already 13! Our kids would make delightful and delighted siblings for a new baby. I think it would be a great new experience for us all. Our lives are a lot different now in mostly good ways. I feel nervous but very excited. I'm not feeling that the question of "is this crazy?" even matters when we decide. (Though I am a little anxious about the future uncertainties.)

Just checking in! So, last month, I charted/temping for the first time, and to my surprise, my chart looked great. I have never temped before; I have trouble sleeping and rarely get more than 2-3 hours of solid sleep at a time, which is less than ideal for temping. Anyway, despite my sleep issues, I had a pretty textbook chart and it totally jived with what I figured was happening...I have a 30-36 day cycle and figured by cm that I was ovulating day 15-18, and had about a 15-16 day leutal cycle. The chart agreed with me, it was clear that I ovulated on day 17, and had a 16 day luetal cycle.

We BD on day 14, but no luck, which isn't too surprising. I know that sperm can live 5-7 days, but that isn't the norm.

I am hopeful that it will happen!

Just wanted to stop in and give an update. The pregnancy was not to be. It was a blighted ovum. I chose to miscarry naturally and it took quite a while. It finally expelled the week of New Year's, although I knew at 6 weeks there was no fetal pole.

I do now yearn for one more. DF is open to another baby. So, we are not doing anything to prevent, but we're also not trying super hard. We weren't actively TTC'ing with this past pregnancy that wasn't. We will see what God has in store for us.

I'm just checking in! Happy New Year!

I started charting temperatures in the Fall, and my current cycle is all over the place (no thanks to a six year old who wakes me up at random times) http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/5d87e1/. I'm super late, and urine tests are coming up negative. I was at the doctor for a massive sinus headache and she did a blood test just in case, so we are waiting on the results of that. I'm hopeful, but not holding my breath. I think I will go see a gynecologist and ask about clomid if it is negative at the end of this cycle.

so sorry honeybunmom it will happen when it's meant to happen I'm sure...

my little guy will be 11 weeks on Monday, getting so fat and chunky from all the nursing. Unlike #1 , he's gassy which is new baby issue to me, so I've been doing extra to keep him happy...and my mom tells me all 5 of her babies were gassy, so my first baby was rare because he never had gas, nor burps, nor hiccups! and he would go #2 2-3 times a day and baby M, well he goes only once every other day...so he's getting probiotics and Colic Calm to help with all the gas. But despite the gas, he's a happy baby who loves to smile and stick out his tongue LOL

hi sunshynbaby...baby dust to you! just wanted to tell you what a naturopath said to me when I asked "should I use clomid?" He said, "don't do that to your body"...just to let you know another opinion on it. I took his advice and used acupuncture instead.

Thanks for the reply nexxus! I forgot about acupuncture. I have a great community acupuncture place that I can go to! I'm excited to have an excuse for some regular acu-naps!

Quick update: My blood test was negative, but my doctor says I could still be pregnant. I would be six weeks now if I am. HPT was negative a couple days ago. I spotted pink or bright red for a few days last week, but did not have a period. I'm thinking I'm either pregnant or may have an ovarian cyst (I had one four years ago that went away on its own). I'm just waiting for a couple weeks for signs of a period before I reconnect with my family doctor and/or see a fertility specialist and acupuncturist. The only pregnancy signs I have are feeling really full after eating a normal amount and occasional breast tenderness. I doubt my sinus/migraine headache has anything to do with pregnancy. My doctor is prescribing home remedies and pregnancy safe meds for my sinus problem until we know for sure. I'm trying to steer away from wishful thinking. I'm in a reasonable holding pattern right now

Hi All - I'm new to the forum and this is just what I was hoping for! I'm 40 and am really hoping to conceive this year!!

I've read so much, but am new to the dos/dont's and especially the LINGO! I've been reading most of the day and some things I've picked up on and some I still have no clue... I'm hoping time will make me a pro at what all of you make seem like second nature. I mainly hope to learn lots from you all and be pregnant soon!!

I wonder if iodine (in particular the food grade form, Lugol's iodine) could help with fertility in older women? I mention this because I was researching the product for other reasons (it works as an antibiotic when sick, and apparently those that havent been consuming large amounts of seafood for years have woefully inadequate levels)

In my googling, i came across cases of menopausal women getting back their period....it might be worth looking into.

Hi Litmama!

It looks like this thread, like most others on MDC, has come to a virtual standstill. Pity...

I came back to post about another supplement worth looking into for those ttc. Its called serrapeptase, which is an enzyme that cleans up scar tissue. It also cleans up inflammation and a variety of other things.

http://community.babycenter.com/post...e_omg_it_works

Whenever I discover some new supplement/food that has significant health implications I always think back to this thread, and wonder how helpful it would be to ttc. I hope this helps someone!

Hi Contactmaya!

Thanks for your reply, I agree it's a pity... I miss all the great women I bonded with over the years! Thank you for the info on serrapeptase, I'll share that with some women I know from another forum (on FB, of course... that seems to be where all the action is these days) who have endometriosis.

Hope all's well with you and your little ones...

Hi Saoirse,

Nice to see you! I'm sorry to hear about the night sweats! Are you having other peri-menopausal symptoms?

I have a couple of recommendations that you might already know about. First, you're already on Vitex, probably? That can help balance the hormones.

Are you doing acupuncture and Chinese herbs? There are plenty of TCM formulas that help with peri-menopausal symptoms like night sweats (I believe Dong Quai is one herbs that's used).

Next, I'm on a prescription medicine called LDN or Low Dose Naltrexone. It needs to prescribed by a doctor or naturopath (my osteopath prescribed it for me). It increases endorphins and thus regulates the endocrine system... I'm on a forum with lots of other women taking it for fertility and we've all had great luck with having it regulate our cycles. I'm 48 and not having any peri-menopausal symptoms yet, still ovulating every month, 28 day cycles, etc. Maybe it's the LDN. I've even read stories of post-menopausal women regaining their cycles after starting LDN. NaPro fertility doctors prescribe it all the time. It might help!

Hope you and your babes are well!

Hi! I'll throw my name out there. I'm 41. Long story short, we had 2 genetically normal embryos. Last month we put one back and ended up with a miscarriage. We'll be putting the last one back next month, but I'm not expecting great things. After that we'll just be trying on our own. I'm not expecting anything. But, I figure we'll just keep doing what happily married couples do and hope for the best.

Any supplement advice for 40 year olds?

Any supplement advice for 40 year olds?
Hi Xerxella,
There was a great list of supplements on the 1st page of this forum that you might find useful. Good luck on your this month with your embryo!

Hello Ladies,
I am new here. TTC for first time in 10 years. I am 43. Currently I am seeing a fertility specialist here that has me doing a follicle study right now. I am at the tail end of that now. On day 21 my largest follicle is 2.15- growing steadily from 1.7 since I started the study on day 10. Tomorrow I go for my last scan this cycle. I have felt pulling and cramping now in the past that I assumed was ovulation. Apparently it was just the follicle growing. Last cycle I had some watery cm on day 23, but I am not sure that if that was ovulation. I have not tried Clomid or any other drugs yet. I have a lap/dnc and polypectomy scheduled for 8/15 since he sees something in my uterus that looks like possible polyp. In 8/14 I had a DNC because of horrible periods. My uterus was "full of polyps" according to the dr.


I am taking Fertilaid, prenatal, vitamin c, Vitex.


Has anyone else had these polyps in the uterus?

Hi all,

It looks like this thread isn't too active, but I wanted to introduce myself anyway. I am 40 and TTC my second child (first is 8, so it's been a while). I am early in my first cycle, so we're charting for now and waiting to see if I ovulate, so fingers crossed for that first hurdle.

Mary, I once had some relatively heavy mid-cycle bleeding and serious cramping and the dr said he would assume it was a polyp that had burst, but that's my only experience. It was brutal, though, if that's what it was.

Hi @Mary Vecchio ! And Hi @Qtwerpy ! Hopefully we can revive this thread a little.

I'm 41 and a frequent miscarrier. So, I generally get pregnant pretty easy, but seldom hold on to it. It seems like my uterus is like the homeless shelter. It just lets everybody settle in. Unfortunately, most of the embryos don't have what it takes to make it.

So, anyways, I'll be working with an RE to try to get a few more targets on any given month in the hope that some of them will be able to stick around.

The herbal/ natural protocol for PCOS has helped some with polyps.

It has been awhile, but it involves 3+ months of progesterone cream (3weeks on/1 week off during your cycle), & a very low carb, whole foods, clean diet, emphasizing raw veggies & lacto fermented foods at each meal...then ttc again during the 4th & subsequent months...

There used to be a phenomenal site with great advice, but the site was sold/ died... I knew I should have printed hard copies of every last page when I had the chance!
