Hi there! 43 & TTC--1 DD so far..

Hello everyone! Just would like some feedback. We have a DD, 3 1/2 y/o. We conceived her after only 2 months of trying, no fertility treatments, etc. Totally natural. First pregnancy. I attributed our good luck to (God of course) + my sturdy eastern-European Jewish genes and all the vitamin E from the peanut butter my hubby loves! I was almost 39 at time of conception. Hallie, thank God was & is perfectly normal. The only snafu was placenta previa, most likely due to age. Had a non-eventful CSX.

My husband and I were TTC from April to June of this year (2004.) Nothing happened. We are going to try tonite and tommorow. My CD was this past Saturday---overlapping w/ the last day of my period! MY CD has been occuring closer and closer to the mentrual period.

My last 6 cycles have been 3 wks/3 wks/3 wks/5 wks/6 wks/5 wks. I had bloodwork this past February to check LH/FSH levels and they were normal. Watcha think?

Thanks! Deb

Can you clarify what cd is. Is this when you are ovulating? If this is I would make sure your doctor is aware that you are ovulating much sooner than before. One of the problems I can see from this is that follicles are not growing to maturity by the time of ovulation. Also after ovulation there should be at least 10 days until the start of your next cycle. Those 10 days are important for implantation and also if they are shorter can mean that you have a problem with progesterone levels after "o". Just a few thoughts on this
Take care

Thanks for your input! Never looked at it from that angle. I'm not due for my annual until April. Still it wouldn't hurt to consult w/ my OB/GYN sooner re the early ovulation.

My period could start anywhere from 12/28/04 to @ 1/11/05. If I don't get my period by the latter date, I'll do a PG test to be sure.

Thanks again!
