just wondering how you're going?

 

Tara-T - March 16

Oh hi there, Mulgajill. I'm still dropping in, however, no news on the TTC front. We'll see a reproductive endocrinologist on March 22nd for some testing and go from there. What about with you?

Good to see you're dropping in... news this month was: conception Yes... only stayed that way for three days after the positive blood test which i had on thursday... going down the progesterone road now.... had to twist the dr's arm to get a prescription only to be told it is not available in the state i live in... (blank looks from pharmacists) - found one pharmacist who actually makes up medications interstate... so will get it via post... good luck with the repro doctor, hope it all goes well... have you tried the progesterone? do you know if it has any bad side effects? :-)

Sorry the conception didn't work out. Question, how did you know you were pregnant for only 3 days? As for me, I just keep worrying about the d__n clock. 42 in Feb. so I'm scared the bloody docs will be like, "at your age, yada, yada, yada..." I've heard that the reporductive dc. we will see is known of his "older" population. I never thought I'd feel geriatric at 42 :-/ but the medical community in this country (U.S.A.) tends to make us feel that way. I really hope I can get pregnant. And yes, I'm going to try progesterone if reprotductive doc doesn't find anything. I think we have a lot in common, we should keep in touch. The only difference, if I'm right, is that you already have several children?

Hi Tara ... well i certainly dont feel geriatric... i still want a pony.... and yes i will keep in touch... dont let the medical profession make you think you are 'old'... women had babies when they were older (and younger) in other times too... my dear friend who pa__sed away aged 84 said his mum was 42 when she had his brother... anyway here is a great link... http://www.mothersover40.com/advantages.html ...if there are any dashes in the link ( - ) delete them after copying and pasting. And yes i do have 2 kids, 9 & 5 but my fella is not their father and has no kids of his own so it would be nice to have another. I am going to have another look at that site now re: the progesterone, seems to be a major thing when you are older that the levels are not high enough to sustain the pregnancy for the first 12 weeks until the placenta takes over the production of this hormone.... also soy products (isoflavines) are meant to be a help in keeping progesterone levels high... asian women who eat lots of soy have cycles average 3 days longer than westerners (longer luteal phase). Cheers :-)

ps: this should make hubby happy... keep shagging regularly (at least every few days) even when not near ovulation time... gotta keep those sperm FRESH... guys make millions everyday and 'fresh is best'.. lol (it is a jingle from our supermarket chain)

: mulgajill --I love that website, and have posted it for others, as well. It's good to hear about the progesterone...if only that would be the answer for me, I would be soooo happy. At this point, I'll try pretty much anything. I know what you mean about older times, I read that women regularly had children much later into life without as many problems as today, I wonder if it's our diets and pollution, et. al. Anyway, keep me posted. Let's hear from other "older" moms or moms to be....

Hi Tara, going to have the weekend 'off' the computer. But thought i would update you first. The pharmacist (interstate one) who makes up the cream talked to me for ages on the phone, said it is a good idea to have a saliva test done but at my age not imperitive (you can ask for this when you see the repro doc, or they can be done on the internet, need referal slip from doctor here, just spit in vial and post). The chemist said it is a good stuff, him and his wife use a low dose, her for menopause, him for prostrate cancer prevention (and yeah, he is into soybeans too). Gave me the email of a doctor here who does seminars on that kind of stuff and has online 'talks'. Also said that studies have found children that are conceived while the mother is using progesterone are more intelligent than the norm (gawd... my kids outsmart me already) and the success rate was good for women who are older and have trouble holding pregnancies in early stages. Is going to give me full instructions for use over the phone when i recieve my package. So put that on you little 'list of things to ask' when you have your appointment. Cheers :-)
