OK, I really need some encouragement! I am 45 with a 2-year-old daughter. We have been TTCing for over a year. I have done 3 sycles of Clomid and nothing. We got pregnant on the first round of Clomid 3 years ago. My estrogen is fine and the progesterone test hasn't come back yet, but I fear that it will be low. My periods have gotten much shorter and lighter in the last 6 months. I am sooooo afraid that it is too late for me, and I really want another baby!!!!

I'm about 14 months shy of 40, but I'd like to join you anyway! I have a 4yo dd, and I'm trying conceive #2. I had a miscarriage last October.

I just want you to know that my cycles shortened from 28 days to 23-24 days when I was 31 and I had no problem conceiving my daughter. So, hopefully that's not a factor for you!

I was tested for low progesterone after my miscarriage. It came back low, so I'm taking supplements in the second half of my cycle. My doctor suggested clomid if I don't conceive next cycle.

Hang in there!

Thanks, SummerLover, I appreciate the support! I am absolutely on pins and needles this morning because I think I may be pregnant! I am 16 DPO today, I have had very light spotting the last two days which I believe is implantation spotting, and I have had *3* faint positive HPTs in the last 24 hours. Yes, I know, a bit obsessive, but I couldn't help it!

I am very sorry for your loss last October. Hopefully you will get a keeper next time!
