I turned 40 in February and am blessed with an almost 3 year old daughter, Alicia Rose. She was conceived with a medicated IUI. My first IUI resulted in a blighted ovum pregnancy and miscarriage. My 2nd gave me Alicia. I then became pregnant for the first and only time without medical help, but sadly, miscarried at 6 weeks. My 3rd IUI last May was unsuccessful. I am planning to try IUI a 4th time, but the specialist required myself and husband to repeat all our tests, so we're on hold medically until the results come in.
Honestly, I'm very tired and depressed right now which is why I came here for support and encouragement. I have been trying to get pregnant for 10 years. I am so thankful for my daughter and my heart and prayers go out out especially strong to those of you ttc #1. I know that empty feeling and longing. Now, my focus has shifted to my daughter. I want so very desperately to give her a sister or brother so that when my husband and I are gone, they will have each other. The only reason I was sad to turn 40 is because I'm so worried about my "old eggs" and being an "older" Mommy. Sometimes, I think I should just accept my blessing and give up, but I can't do that.
I've tried almost everything out there to get pregnant, so if you have any questions, just ask. I'm a big fan of the clear blue easy fertility monitor. It works perfectly for me identifying when I ovulate. Unfortunately, my body just hasn't cooperated.
Hugs to everyone
