Any older women TTC with IVF?

I'm doing IVF for the first time within the month and I haven't seen many other geriatric women on this site (but maybe I havent looked carefully enough). I'm 39 and DH is 43. We've been TTC for about a year, and our infertility is pretty much unexplained except for the fact that we're OLD, reproductively speaking.

Me - 39, DH - 43, TTC x 1 year 1st IUI 2/16/11 with clomid & trigger shot, BFN. Skipping ahead to IVF b/c paying out of pocket & other concerns 1st IVF cycle Mar-April, 2011 (ER expected week of 4/11, ET planned 3 days later...)

You are not alone! I am 42, and married my H when I was 40. We started trying for kids about a year ago, and there is no reason for our infertility other than age. I did get PG naturally in Dec. but lost if due to a cervical ectopic PG. It was horrible. I am about to undergo my first IVF in June and am so super nervous about all the drugs and how the whole process will affect me and my DH emotionally and physically for me. UGH. I love to read these success stories. Gives me so much hope!!!
