Newbie....Hi

Hi All,

I have been lurking here for a few weeks and finally decided that I would join in with such a fantastic group. I have been trying to understand all the lingo and abbreviations, so I apologize if I sound ridiculous and need to ask what something means. I wanted to introduce myself...my name is Bella and I believe I am the oldest one here (I'm 43) and have just went to an RE who didn't give me the most encouraging news. But we went forward anyway. My first FSH was 38 and on second visit was given clomid, the FSH went down to 17 then 14. Started taking Menopur injections and schedule an US in a week. The US had an 11cm follie in one ovary and an 12 cm follie in the other. Continuing the menopur injections and had another US Saturday. One follie grew to 18cm while the other stayed the same. I need to stay on the clomid until monday when I go in for my next US. Started taking Femtrace on Saturday as well. Today went in for an US and one follie at 22cm, the other still has not grown. Tonight I get a Ovidrel injection and tomorrow go back for an IUI. I know my age is such a big factor and I'm praying I didn't wait too long for children. I would be devastated. I'm so greatful that there are boards like this to help me understand the process and know that what I'm going through...so many others can honestly relate having gone through this procedure themselves. I appreciate the kindness and knowledge you all bring. Hope I am posting this on the right board? Wishing you all baby wishes, tiny kisses and 10 litle fingers and toes! :D

Hi Charlie,

So nice to meet you! I am at the end of my 2 week wait. I take a home preg. test on monday. I am sooooo anxious and sooooo nervous at the same time. It is so hard to fight my urge to take an early test. I have been reading so many boards and really got discouraged hearing about how many IUI's aren't that successful. Especially at my age, but ike everyone else here I want nothing more than to have a child. I'm doing my best to stay positive, it just hasn't been easy. Please tell me where you are and what method you are using? Thanks Again for the reply! :lol:
Best.
Bella
