    Smile Age !!!!

    Hi Lucky,

    good on you for choosing to have another child once this one is here!!!!! Well done.

    I am actually 49 at the moment and just about to have my 4th transfer. Due to my age we are using donor eggs that have been fertilised with my partners sperm. We still have 11 embryos frozen and will continue until they run out, hopefully we will be pregnant before that happens!!!!

    That will be "IT" for us as our FS will only treat me up until I turn 51. He doesn't treat women past 50, but as we have frozen embryos he has given us until I am 51.

    I know that sounds SO old, but I had no idea that this is where I would end up in life, so am giving it my best shot!!!

    I think it probably comes down to a well educated decision being made by a couple and their FS!!!

    All the best with your pregnancy and the next one too!!!!

    Love Goldy

    Lucky- I am glad you decided to stay. I agree with everyone's comments (supporting you of course).

    Kismet - I am glad there is someone else that has not really experienced any symptons. I am now 7 weeks preg and the only symp I have is extreme fatigue. I am trying hard not to stress. I have my ultra sound on Tuesday. I think I will be a nervous wreck by then. I too have PCOS and I heard that can increase your chance of miscarriage. But I am a youngish 40 year old. Or so I have been told. I am so glad your pregnancy is going so well.

    P.S Kismet my breasts are also not sore. Do you know if this is a problem

    Hi everyone

    LuckyAPA - so glad you didn't go away! Fabulous that you want to go again as soon as you can after 'this one'.

    Jewels - I don't believe 'normal' boobs is a problem at all, lots of people say theirs don't get sore. I was actually reading a pregnancy mag yesterday with several women's own stories in it, one of them was as far as me and her pregnancy is exactly like mine so it put my mind at ease. My mum had no symptons with 3 boys but had m/s all thru her pregnancy with me (she often brought that up when she wasn't happy with me ) Actually suddenly I'm looking like I have pornstar boobs, they are big enough to start with but are starting to get very snug in my bras and my nipples have changed. Good luck with your scan, I know its nerve wracking, I was almost afraid to look and held my breath but I'm sure you will be fine.

    Jo101 - welcome. It would be lovely to add to your family, hopefully you will be pleasantly surprised with your frostie.

    Goldy - age is just a number, I think your'e an inspiration. Best of luck with your next transfer

    Hi ladies, just a quick 'at work' post....

    am still on testosterone patches but my FS has agreed to use DHEA if this doesnt help! Yay!

    regardless of the outcome, I really need to have tried everything I can to have another bub.

    I am blessed to have him, I really am, but that doesnt stop me praying for a second miracle.

    Hugs to all and sorry for no personals.....

I honestly can't say because we were not faced with that decision. But, to be honest, I suspect I would have done just about anything and everything to have a baby, donated or not, just like everyone else on here.

    Lucky if you felt my comments attacked you then you may have to accept that your rash factual remark on donor eggs etc did offend me at the time of reading it.
    I did not once ask you to retract your point of view as you are entitled to your own opinion like everyone is here. You have no reason to leave this thread - you started it - it was I who said that I felt it was not the place for me at that time. So sorry I have had to write and clear this up as I said in my post Lucky that I did not want to upset you. I meant that - but my opinion is just that on the topic of some peoples attitudes towards donor ivf in general. We are all going through ivf in this thread are we not. This is your thread and I offered to keep out of it for the most part - it is not for me anymore. Furthermore, actively supporting others contemplating ivf is a little way to give back perhaps and a good deed. No need to feel guilty for being 'lucky' though.
    I have pm'd you to see if this can't be worked out still.
    Enjoy your pregnancy, take it easy.

    Goldy - you go girl!!! Totally agree with Kismet, age IS just a number. Can't you just keep going even after 51 maybe at another FS? We hear of women all the time overseas having babies well beyond 50, why can't we???

    Jewels3 - I had no symptoms either except the fatigue and that got worse around the 9 week mark...but then disappeared at 11-12 weeks....and tender boobs but nothing more than just before my period is due. 17 weeks tomorrow and now I too have pornstar boobs plus a beer drinkers belly...and I've never had a beer in my life. I read somewhere that women over 40 have fewer pregnancy symptoms because of their hormone levels...was that on this thread somewhere? And then I read that everyone is different, over 40 or not...

    Jo101 - it only takes one. Fingers crossed for your little frostie....

    As for the other post..... It was NOT a RASH factual remark. All of the women on here have to face the fact that donor eggs (and sperm) MAY become an issue they have to consider over age 40. FACT. Most IVF statistics mention this for the over 40's. FACT. Most fertility specialists mention this for the over 40's. FACT. Whether a woman/couple uses donated eggs or sperm is a personal choice and one I have not commented on anywhere on this thread, not in terms of my own circumstances nor anyone else's...it's PERSONAL! I think I can speak for everyone else on here and say...THE END!!!!

    Lucky - I've about had it with your posting to me on this. This is a public forum unfortunately that means the public can post their opinions openly here too; even me. I tried to open the door to work this out with you earlier; you shut it on me.

    You cannot speak for 'everyone else' here as that is not how these forums work. If the majority agrees with you, great; if not, no worries, and it appears they do.

    As far as I'm concerned you did imply in my mind something negative about the use of donor genes; End of story as you put it.

    Whether you intended to offend or not is besides the point now, one person was offended by the opening topic wording and brought it to your attention, you have only slammed me since and defended your remarks.

    I did not attack you personally; although you felt I did, sorry for that - I asked you to explain your wording when you opened this topic as 40's ivf.

    I tried to make this work with you later on and have wished you the best with your preg and health; you have responded with the opposite again and again so consider any respect for you as a bubhub poster over; you never had any for my point of view so nothing lost there.
    You can stay or leave this thread Lucky. I'm not participating in it except to answer you here. But please do not try and speak for all posters. This is between you and I. As I suggested to you earlier, look after your health and stress levels. We should not sweat the small stuff in life like internet forum 'opinions'. We all have one. So can we drop it and

    Hi all

    I've received some quite explicit and ridiculous private messages from Outside the Square today. According to OTS I'm 'IT illiterate', 'live in the boonies', have 'no female friends', show 'prejudice towards donor eggs and sperm', 'take credit for making womens lives better', and 'got so nasty'...etc etc..and so it goes on and on and on ad infinitum....
    I am gobsmacked. What a complete nutter!!!!

    I am off here for good now. If anyone wants to correspond off here, I'm happy to do that, just let me know.

    Good luck to you all.

    Goodness me,

    I think that perhaps a truce to be called in is order!!!!!!

    After all we are all on the same journey, no matter which road we need to take. The hopefully happy outcome of all our individual IVF stories is that we can realise our dreams of a healthy baby to cherish and love. I am a bit disappointed that this forum has been turned in to a slanging match. I have enjoyed so much the individual stories here and the support that we give to each other. I think that's what we are all here for!!!!

    On a brighter note I have my lining scan tomorrow and that will give me a date for my next FET!!!!

    Love to all,

    Goldy

    Is this the over 40's section ???????because ive been lurking for a few weeks and im totally confused I actually come hear to read everyone stories as it is extremely encouraging and supportive to read all stories and everyones strength and determination!!!! Reading today has really made me question how the "parenting skills" would solve this if this happened between 2 of your children or your child and another from school.IMO were all on the same side and aiming for the same goal
