Requesting Baby Dust!

So after a lot of badgering, I FINALLY got my GP to do some hormone level testing. I had to switch OB's, and she wanted to refer me to an RE for testing, and they couldn't see us until Mid-March. I'm almost 43 people, I don't have time!!!!  My DH and I decided from the get-go that we would not go as far as IUI or IVF. If it happened it happened. I was fully preparing myself to give up on the dream and move on. But after a weeks' wait, everything came back completely normal! My FSH is 7.4 - that of a 33-37 year old. I was very encouraged by that. So we will continue charting and BDing and hopefully get our BFP soon. Sending my own baby dust to you all!!

Congrats on the great numbers!  I think you're on the right track w/ the charting; it can be very helpful.  Sending you loads of SSBD!

That's great news.  I feel the same way about IUI and IVF.  If it happens it happens, and I pray that it does.  Are you temping?  I just started and am getting alot of interesting information about ovulation.

Yes, I am temping. I had a really odd cycle this month with a really late O. I am hoping the abnormality signifies a BFP!!!  I am 3dpo and have my second hormone blood test tomorrow morning. Wish there was SOME way they could tell if you've conceived so much earlier!! I know it's come a long way, but geesh!!! I hate waiting!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I'm 46 and just got my cd3 numbers back (FSH=7.3, estradiol = 53)  My husband and I also decided against IUI or IVF.  We will do medicated cycles with monitoring though.

Good luck to all of us "mature" ladies!!!! :-)

Great, glad you are starting progesterone.  Ask your obgyn if you need estrogen as well, it worked for me. Such great news!

I'm TTC and I'm 45 and 1/2.  This week I noticed brown mucus.  Does that mean I am ovulating?  I don't want to have to go through IVF, or whatever it is that people do. It sounds so complicated but I want another baby.  Hoping for baby dust. Congrats to all who are pregnant and over 40.
