Re: The Over 40 Crowd

MrsCutter: My sister made the decision to remove the entire breast, as that was recommended to her. She is doing great and is wanting to make most of the food for our Christmas Day lunch, since she has not felt like cooking for a long time. Yasmina: Deciding which school to send Andrew has caused a ...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Margi: Thanks for asking about my Max. He is doing great. He is able to navigate his way around our house and yard just fine. Once in awhile he runs into something, bless his heart. I'm trying to work on him with command words, such as careful, up, down, etc. He is the best dog ever. He still loves ...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Yasmina: It is good to hear from you. I do feel that we made the right decision about the adoption. It has been 5 years since we started the adoption process. If it would have happened two years ago, I would have gone ahead with it, but now we are at a different point in our lives. Now we can travel...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Rhonda, It was good to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words regarding the adoption. I have not started the menopause yet, but my cycles are starting to be different. I had to have an ultrasound a week ago, as I was having spotting one week after my period was over. My doctor wanted to rule out ...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Margie, I'm so glad to hear that you and your babies are doing well. I wanted to tell you my thoughts on the amnio. When we were pregnant with our Andrew, we opted for just the 1st trimester screening, as well as the 2nd trimester screening. I was 42 when I was pregnant with Andrew. We did not do th...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Margi, I'm so sorry to hear of your news. This infertility thing is a difficult one. I would recommend have an HSG x-ray and doing another IUI. I got pregnant with Andrew naturally at 42 right after having an HSG x-ray. My RE said that it increases your changes of becoming pregnant for 1-2 cycles af...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Hello Ladies: Catharine: Sorry to hear your news. Margi26: Sorry to hear about your BFN, but good to hear that you are right back on the horse. We do not have a child identified yet. In China, they pick a child for you and then send you the photos and paperwork on that child. If you accept the refer...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Hello Ladies: Welcome NY4thtry. Catharine: Sorry to hear about only one mature egg with your Femara cycle. Of course, you only need one good egg to get pregnant. When will you be testing? Margi26: How are you doing? Any news? Rhonda: Yes, the drug in Robitussin that thins your mucous is guaifenesin....

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Margi: That is great news! I think the HSG also cleanses the uterine lining (in my opinion). Since I had two IVF's, my tubes were not a factor, so I think implantation was my problem. I transferred 5 embies on my last IVF before I became pregnant naturally at 42 years old. It sounds like this will b...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Margi: Let me tell you how I got pregnant with my 3.5 year old son, Andrew. I had already had 2 failed IUI's and 2 failed IVF's and was waiting to do a frozen cycle. My RE suggested that I have a HSG x-ray, the test you are going to have. He said that it increased your chances of getting pregnant fo...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Hello Ladies: Catharine: Sorry to hear about your BFN, but glad to hear you are right back on the horse. I used Femara for my last few cycles and it did help me produce several eggs each cycle and no thinning of the uterine lining. Good luck!! Margie: Good luck on your upcoming cycle. Sunshine and S...

Re: The Over 40 Crowd

Hello Ladies: Sorry that I have not posted in awhile. Mamad: Sorry to hear your news. Is your Dr. encouraging another IVF cycle with your eggs? If you use donor eggs you can wait until you have enough money saved. If he/she is not supportive, find another Dr. who is supportive and understanding. IVF...

Sunshine & Stars:

Congrats on your BFP! Your beta number sounds great! I'm thinking that my first beta was in the
500 - 600 range as well.

Regards,
