A woman I know from another board just got her BFP [big fat positive - positive pregnancy test]

This will be her first child!

This was from a minimum stimulation IVF [in vitro fertilization] cycle with Dr. Zhang - the same guy I just starting seeing myself.

She is 44 years old, and will be 45 years old in a couple of months.

Her FSH [follicle stimulating hormone] was 6.5 and e2 [estrogen level] was 112 - which of course means that her FSH was actually higher.

Yes, she BEAT the odds!

She has been trying naturally for a long time.

She transferred two, two day embies [embryos], and did Clomid only for six days I believe (from cycle day 4 - cycle day 10).

I am so excited I can barely stand it... especially since I am also working with this same doctor!!!

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
