Hey girls, some may remember me, I was here for a year and a half trying to conceive again after a m/c. I come and check on you all off and on hoping to see BFP's and figured I would give an update today. For the newbies, I got pregnant accidentally and shockingly at 42 after only 2 months dtd. Unfortunately, a large fibroid in my uterus caused a m/c, baby couldn't attach. For 18 months we TTC again, using clomid (6months), IUI's (4 total) and then Femara (4 cycles so far), next month will be 2 yrs since my BFP and nothing has happened since. TTC over 40 is a hard, exhausting, emotionally draining, all consuming journey and after a while I decided it was taking too much out of my life so I quit seeing the RE. I stopped temping, using OPK's, charting and even stopped talking to DH about it, he doesn't even know when I O now, or when AF is due, or when I POAS! (When we got pg we didn't even know we could, I was 42 and he was 46 but it happened all on our own, so why use all that stuff now??) Life is MUCH more peaceful now and I feel I have taken back control of my life too. I was not ready to totally give up the dream though and figured as long as I have the Femara I am going to take it and see what happens, my RE gave me a 6 month prescription. I still have hope though, it CAN happen!
