Hope it's ok Krista for me to start this but since I left IV for a while, now that I'm back, there are a lot of ladies I don't know.

Good idea Susan.

Michelle - 45
DH - 46
DS - 14
DS - 11 (adopted, with us since 1w old)
DS - 5
DD - 3

I have had little testing done since this round of TTC, except when on clomid. I am on nothing right now.

Infertility has been an issue for me most of the time, took pergonal for DS 14 and clomid for DS 5. I have had 7 m/c along the way, most notably an ectoptic pregnancy in which I also lost an ovary in 95 and then one at 13 weeks in 09. Only DD was successful w/o intervention.

We have decided that for us personally we will proceed to TTC but only on our own. If it is meant to be for us, then it will happen, and if not then it won't. My last 4 bfps were all without assistance, but only that first 1 after DS 5 was sticky. I am older now of course, so that has likely played a part, but my track record was not great going into this so don't let my record discourage you. Just remember that DS 5 was born just 3 weeks before my 40th birthday, and DD was conceived without help when I was 42!

yeah, where's Krista ;-).... she's off thinking about her triplets.

Martha just turned 43 in May
DH 46
no kids

TTC for 2 years (m/c 2 years ago).
Poor ovarian reserve, FSH 3.3, AMH .1. 3 failed clomid attempts, 1 failed IVF. Tried all of the magic potions, including DHEA (think it is bad.....)

Hoping the donor egg application comes today, after two weeks of waiting!

I'll try to get the name of the article that my RE recently wrote on genetic material transfered from the mother to the embryo in utero for you, Susan V. Maybe that will sway him!

Good idea, Susan!

Here is my story:

My name is Dianne and I'm 41.
DH is 37.
TTC baby #1 for my 4th cycle.
Was on BC pills for many years and just got off of them 3 months ago. I wish I started TTC a couple years sooner, but it really just wasn't the right time.

My first formal charting was last month, and all seemed normal temps-wise, LP was 12 days, I O'd and BD'd when I thought I should...but no BFP for me. The only potential problem I could see was that I was low on EWCM. We use Pre-seed now, just incase.

I am in otherwise good health. I had a pre-TTC screening with an ultrasound to check for cysts, etc. Was normal.

I recently started weekly acupuncture and am taking "Free & Easy Wanderer Plus" teapills, as well as Solgar brand B-complex 100 vitamins (B6, Folic, etc.)

My GYN said that if I am not PG by the end of the summer, I should come back for testing. My H and I decided last night that if we aren't PG by the end of this month, we will both go in for testing. :)

{{{{HUGS}}}} to all of you and hoping you are all PG soon.

Here is my current chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2ef368

Great idea, Susan. And here I am Martha. Been a little obsessed (and worried lately so not on as much).


Here is my story:


I am Krista 43 (44 in July), DH 49 and DS 5


DH has MFI and I have known since I met him 12 years ago. At age 34, we started treatments on DH, somewhat successful so we did IUI. Took 5 attempts, and at 37.5 I got PG. PG delivery and raising this little guy has been a piece of cake.


When I was 40 (Nov 06) and DS was
