OK, as a 42 y.o. with a Day 3 FSH of 10.6 & Estradiol of 67-ish, I gather this board is a "safe space," which is good cuz I truly am kind of chicken about TTC! Never pregnant before, but never tried, either. Thanks for being here.
Deets: My husband has a vasectomy (2 kids already), and I'm meeting with an RE next week to get opinions on whether hubs should try a reversal, or whether --given my age and numbers-- we should just move straight away to ART like IVF, and do sperm retrieval on him. (Which, I guess, would mean I wouldn't be the only one in the household with some needles in my future...)
Right now, I'm taking pre-natal vitamins -OH THE IRONY- with DHEA & fish oil, evening primrose oil, plus Vitex and Chinese herbs for female hormonal balance ("Heavenly Water"). Also going to acupuncture, trying to stay calm with mediation and yoga, and, um, maybe, just possibly, occasionally avoiding baby-saturated environments. You know, for, ah, psychological reasons. Gosh, I gotta tell ya, once you get TTC on your mind, you'll notice those things are everywhere! :P
Any New York girls have any thoughts on NYU vs. Cornell for all-around quality of care? I'm all ears.
