Re: TTC IUI after 40, waiting for period to come...?
I pray everyday for a clear answer to my fertility issues. I too wish I knew what my "plan" is. Is it 1 child, 2 children, adoption? I struggle with these issues but know what my limitations are both mentally and financially. I do not want to chase a dream of having another while scarificing today and what/who I can love additionally. My therapist told me "you can alway be a mother to someone." She is right I could be a mother to another child if that means I need to adopt.
But for today I live in less hope of conceiving naturally. Today I am trying naturally but tracking my ovulation. 2 days after I ovulate I need to start giving myself 3 shots a day of progestrine and heprin. Take 1 asprin and a mild steroid. All of these are suppose to block the negative antibodies from attacking the fetus. According to the clear blue easy test monitor I have entered into the High Fertility range which indicated a rise in estrogen and may ovulate in a day or 2. OR not. It is possible to reach this stage and not ovulate so I will continue to pee on a stick until day 16 then I stop.
If I don't get pregnant then in June I start a menapur shots with IUI or natural bedding. The RE is not sure yet if I should spend the money on IVF or IVF with donor since we cannot rule out these antibodies as an issue.
I just read that Kelly Prestin is pregnant at 47! You know that was not with her egg!
BTW take another HPT! Last pregnancy mine was negative on day 29 and positive on day 31!
Hugs and TGIF!
It is so good talking to you
