ivf at 41?

tryingat40 - July 25

I'm about to turn 41. I had one unsuccessful iui with follistim. The doctor determined that in addition to my age, my husband's sperm has low morphology. He recommends ivf. I'm feeling down because I was hoping we would've been successful while I was still 40. I just need emotional support because I feel like crying.

40 and ttc for 3+ years and just found out my problem ... I'm still going for it, although I feel bad like you ... I kinda feel too old to carry a baby, but I want one so bad, I'll have to get over it!!! AND SO WILL YOU!!

Dear Trying,
Hang in there! I will be 40 in November and we have been trying over a year now. Our Dr. also wanted us to do IVF, but we decided to try IUI first just to give it a shot. I have been on follistim injections, and am now 10 days PIUI. i will take an hpt on monday and a blood test on Tuesday. Wish me luck! I am happy to have you girls to talk to and listen to!

Hello All! I will be 41 in October and was hoping so bad that I would get pregnant before my husband left to Iraq. We were married October 2, a day before my 40th and we decided we would wait a year to try and have a baby, but then he got the news that he was getting deployed again to Iraq so we decided to start trying right away. It's been 10 months and nothing. I am very heartbroken but coming to terms and accepting that I will have to wait a year before trying again. By then I will be almost 42. I cry for so many reasons: because he is leaving and we will be separated for a whole year; because I truly wanted to be pregnant so bad before he left - something more to make the time go faster; I also have not family here so it will be me and my daughters by ourselves. I miss my family and friends though no one knows I am trying. I don't want all the questions. And I do get alot of support coming to this forum. I cry with you all, rejoice with you all and pray with you all for I know how you all feel. Good luck to you all. Millions of Baby Dust!!!!! :)
