My husband and I TTC for nearly 4-1/2 yrs and were unsuccessful. At ages 46 and 42, we decided apply for adoption program within the county where we live.
Before we completed adoption classes on 3/2004, we found out that we conceived 2/2004. Unfortunately, we miscarried 5 weeks along.
My OB/GYN encouraged me by saying that at least we knew I had the capability to get pregnant. My younger sister had done research on estrogen dominance, of which I had many of the symptoms.
So, after the miscarriage, I started progesterone cream treatment, and two months later, we were pregnant! We had a healthy, full-term pregnancy and gave birth to a beautiful little girl, one month before I turned 43.
I have been very uncertain about having another child at my age (I'm 44 now), but after reading all of these wonderful and encouraging comments, maybe we will TTC this year!
