Good luck Violet!
I like your attitude!
Where & with whom are you having acupuncture? I am interested in doing this next time but didn't enjoy it before so am a bit wary.

Hi Everyone
Haven't been on since I got my BFP result.  Am now 3 days away from 12 weeks with twins  ;D  I'm 46 and this was our first attempt at DEIVF.  Started late in life as only met my husband 5 years ago, married in 2008, conceived naturally at 43, miscarried at 10 weeks (partial molar).  Our fertility doctor recommended Donor Eggs.  He suggested IVI in spain.  Went to Barcelona, didn't shop around actually. We were so new to it all, we assumed that's all there was!!!!.  Anyway, 2 transfers and 5 frozen.  I honestly built myself up for it not happening first time. Still pinching myself but  on tenterhooks from scan to scan!!!!.  Nausea has been awful but I don't care.  I'm delighted I came aross this forum again and congrats to all of you who gave birth in your late 40s and early 50s.  I went onto another forum and in the section 'December babies', all the ladies listed their due date and their age.  Not one over 29 lol!!!  Best of luck to everyone trying.  xxx

Hi Kate,
You have an almost identical history to me, including the late marriage (mine was 2007) the natural p/g followed by m/c and then a successful DEIVF. Fab news about the twins and sending lots of  ^reiki^  for your next scan.
Other forums you might find supportive are the pregnancy after loss thread and the abroadies bumps and babes.
I know what you mean about all the youngsters on the bfp threads but there are lots of us 'oldies' around and when you come to give birth you will find that you are not really in a minority at all!

Wow, Kate & Lirac,
It's so great to hear your stories. I met my DH late too (at 42), so I hope our fertility journey will be like yours too
Good luck Kate, we'll all be gunning for you. Keep us posted.

Hi Kate, Lirac and Helen,

I think we are all in the same boat here, so to speak. 

I met my DH when I was 39 and have been ttc since then. Conceived at naturally at 45 and m/c at 8.5 weeks. 
So 2 IVF attempts later we are now down the doner eggs road with doner found and just about to start the process.

Unfortunately we can't map our lives out as I'm sure in an ideal world we would have all met our DH earlier and had our
families by now, but that's not how it works which is a shame, but I'm sure we'll all get there in the end.

We have to keep positive and live in hope and as the saying goes 'it's not over until the fat lady sings'    ^pray^

Good luck Kate - fingers crossed all goes well for you and best of luck to everyone else.
xx

Hi everyone - I also met my DH when I was 41.  took 3 years to persuade him to let me try for a baby and by then my eggs were obviously not good enough quality as had 2 early losses and one blighted ovum at 10.5 weeks.  Success first time with DEIVF though!  Good luck to you all.
