I have to share the story about my 44 year old friend, who got a positive pregnancy test with Dr. Zhang...

She just did her first cycle with Dr. Zhang, and got her BFP [big fat positive - positive pregnancy test]!!

Isn't that great!?!

She transferred two 2 day embies [embryos]....

She took Clomid on this mini-IVF [in vitro fertilization] cycle...

She has never been pregnant before...

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.
