i am new to posting, but have been perusing these sites for the last 4 months...i feel like a silent stalker
so thought it was time to put my fears, questions, frustrations up here since i dont really have anyone that i can talk to about this except my husband, hes wonderful ...but sometimes you just need another women in the same situation to understand.
I am 39, soon to be 40 in September, have controlled type II diabetes, hypothyroid, taking Clomid 50 mg for the last 3 cycles. i have had excellent response as far as making mature follies:
#1 cycle = 1 @ 1.11; progesterone 3.7 (some sort of ovulation?? per ob)
#2 = 3 follies @ 1.78, 1.83, 2.3; progesterone 18.5 (definetely ovulated)
BFP on CD29
-but blood test was negative, started AF next day (chemical pregnancy???)
#3 = 5 follies @ 1.97, 1.47, 1.55, 1.66, 1.32. progesterone CD 21 = 4.5, then CD 23 = 23.9, BFN on CD 26 & cd 29 yesterday....still waiting for AF....
Husband is 35, hypertension but otherwise good weight, healthy, SUPER sperm, but not children
i already have a 19 1/2 year old son, but would like to have just one more child, God willing. It is very frustrating that everyone around me seems to think this is a bad idea that i am trying to get pregnant at my age....all my friends already have 3+ kids each so they're done...they dont understand.
Sadly, i think my OB feels the same way, i feel that she is only helping me to "passify" me "whatever happens" type of attitude, so i am seeking guidance from an RE hopefully this cycle (waiting for appt).
Its nice to know i am not alone, i look forward to talking with you all and picking your brains
