Hi everyone. I've been lurking ever since my MC back in Oct. 05. I am 41 and have 2 boys (19 & 17). After my MC, my BF and I decided to "try" on purpose (as the first had been an "accident"). So after trying in Nov & Dec 05, off I went to the Fertility specialist in January. My CCT result was pretty dismal (12.5 & 17) and my ovarian reserve was supposedly nil. In addition, I had only 1 follicle on one side and 0 on the other. Needless to say, I was VERY depressed, especially since my BF is only 35 with no kids and desperately wants one - Besides, I felt OLLLLLDDD!

Anyway, I went to an acupuncturist 4x and started taking Fertility Blend the middle of February. I was told I was NOT a candidate for IVF and should start thinking about DE.

Well, lo & behold, I got a BFP on Saturday - a full 8 days before my period was expected!! I was nauseous, super tired, gassy & have indigestion. I just KNEW that's what it was.

I read all those ads for Fertility Blend and DHEA and everything else and am a pretty big cynic, so I stared the FB just to "see" not really thinking it would work and here I am! BTW, I had been taking the DHEA since October as well but stopped it in January when my period just got so short it was hardly even there. I also BD'd every other day from CD 8 - CD 16 (and there REALLY is such a thing as too much sex:).

Just wanted to pass on my luck. Keep my little bean in your prayers! Hopefully, this one will stick:)

Julie,

I think the 35 year old Becca was talking about is her boyfriend, not a female best friend trying to get pregnant. :-) He doesn't have any children yet, so she's extra happy and hoping to give him his first. At least I think I read that correctly!

Not to worry! The abbreviations can get confusing and I still find myself looking them up all the time to see what they mean. Someone used to post "FOB" a lot, meaning "father of baby." And my eyes always read it as "SOB" (as in son of a b---h)! Hee hee.
