I just thought I'd pop in to see how everyone is going.
Yes, my Gyn/Ob said the same thing to me that a hysteroscopy would also enhance my ability to fall pregnant. Remember I had 6 pregnancies over about 22 months (I'd need to get my paperwork out to give you the exact period of time), at any rate... yes I think it should be good and should help you!
Thanks, how are you? I didn't know that, I'm sorry! Do you mind if I ask? Were they DE?
Yeah all great this way... although I hate Winter with a passion.
No, I conceived all of them naturally with my own eggs.
My Gyn/Ob, who hadn't seen me for about 12 years, was a bit shocked when I walked in to see him... WITH A NEW HUSBAND! ;-)
He did however say that his oldest lady to conceive naturally and carry through to a successful and healthy delivery was 47 (at conception).
With each of my pregnancy that I lost, he was supportive but reminded me of the age of my eggs.
Ce la vie!
I hope all is going well for you.
p.s. Sorry Mel. I am now 48, but my first pregnancy (and I fell the first time we tried) after my two sons (born 1996 and 1997) was in 2009 and I was 44 turning 45 in a couple of months. I then fell about three times in 2010 at 45 and then I think once at 46 in 2011 and once at 47 in 2012 (I wish I could find my document where I have recorded all of my pregnancies... and losses/D&C's. When I do I will come back to you with it all).
Are you considering DE? Was just wondering. Ella is so mine, I think it's funny when ppl tell my DH she looks just like me! I'm really lucky! I've missed everyone so much. It's hard with a baby.
No Mel we aren't considering DE and not for any particular reason either. DH was thrilled when I fell (and kept falling as he has no biological children), however the miscarriages crushed him as much as me. We spoke on what to do next and he has said he is so happy to have my two boys in his life, that he doesn't 'need' to be a 'biological father', that he is father to my two as if they were his own.
We have almost completed our Foster Parenting training (we were both Police Officers and I also worked in Child Safety) and we just believe that we can make a difference to some poor little soul out there with a goal for reunification with their family.
I am sooo happy that you have that special fully biological connection with Ella and it is so wonderful that she looks like you! What an added bonus!!!
Yeah, I don't get on here too much either these days, but I do love popping in to pray that I see one of us 'mature girls' ;-) pregnant/or delivered a healthy baby.
I really hope you are successful again... what a perfect dream come true!
Ella was from DE! Although I feel she goes look like me and the fact that I have birth to her really gives me that connection.
Love hugs and ssbd
I am so happy for you Mel, sweet little Ella just sounds like a dream come true. I fully support what you say about having given birth to her gives you that connection... my gosh, you made her and how lucky you all are.
I love a great story!!!!
Hysteroscopy all done, now just waiting for my lining and FET...I'll keep you all posted
Ohh keeping everything crossed for a quick Happy and Healthy 40 weeks for you Mel.
