Hi ladies,

Well, I have to say, that there is hope for all of us over 40 and TCC! I got a BFP this morning and 10 DPO. Trying not to get too excited as it is early! Thanks to all for the words of wisdom and faith!

Baby dust to all!!

LESLIE,

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That is sooooooooooooo exciting and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you are nauseus and sick for a long time! :-)

OK, if you want to answer, can you tell us how old you are, if this was "natural" or medically assisted, and what (if anything) you did that you think may have contributed to your getting pregnant (not BDing, but special diet, exercise, etc.)? I know, I'm such a leech poaching for information!!!

Again, congrats! This really is wonderful news... And I hope you'll join us over at the "Pregnant After 40" board as well. We can use some good news on there!

xxoo
Lois

Hi Lois,

Thank You! No, I don't mind sharing at all. The only thing that make me hesitant is that this was very easy for DH and I. Here's my story! I have fraternal twin girls who will be 7 in August. They were conceived without any medical help and I was 34. We just recently decided, like last month, to actually try to see if we could have another. So, at the age of 41, we started trying this month, and lo and behold, we got our BFP.

I have been reading a lot of posts since we dediced to start trying. My heart has gone out to so many women who are struggling with fertility issues. I hope this post does not cause anyone any pain but only brings them hope that conceiving after 40 is possible, weather we need medical intervention or not.

You all are truly an inspiration and I will continue to post.

On a side bar, Lois, I have been following you and your frustrations with conceiving. Please do not give up. Maybe take some time off and give yourself a break. I will place you on my prayer list and send lots of special baby dust your way.

Thanks again,

Leslie

Leslie,

Thanks for sharing! I think it's wonderful that it happened so quickly for you and don't think you should feel badly about it. Just goes to show it can happen!

And thanks for your kind words... DH and I are actually taking a break from TTC. We've been trying to have a baby our entire marriage so we're due for a break. It actually feels nice to kind of just not obsess about when I'm ovulating and having to BD NOW! :-)

I hope you'll keep us posted on your good news!

xxoo
Lois
