Hi ladies. I've been lurking and reading for months since switching over from the other board.My heart goes out to all who share their stories and I always jump on hoping to hear those joyous stories. Where am I? 44 trying for my first child. Was at NH for almost a year (no success and just going crazy, but that's a whole other story). Now using local center in PA using DE. Been on bcp for 2 plus weeks and got the call to start lupron this week. Never did all the injections before here we go. With me, no real health issues. Everything seems "normal" (whatever that really means). But, I'm 44 with all the dor characteristics. With things moving along, I'm getting really nervous. Of course, I'm optimistic that my chances are better and this could work. My husband (who always sees the bright side) is convinced this will work. I'm getting worried about how he especially (and I ) will handle it if it doesn't work. It seems like there are still so many women on here who may not be achieving success. I believe one poster said everybody she knows had to try at least twice with DE before having a baby. Do you all see it like that to? I'm not sure if a lot of women on here are from the "older" fertility age or a lot of women on here are sadly dealing with a history of complications impeding pregnancy. I hope nobody minds me inquiring, introducing myself and asking for any words of wisdom.
