Too old? Thirty five too old! HA!
Women scramble to have a baby because there is a sort of taboo about being too old. By age 35 if you get pregnant you are considered a high risk pregnancy so you need extra monitoring.
It freaks us out! These days women are busy building careers and having fun! They don’t want to start a family at 25 like our parents.
Oh wait yes I did but not everyone does. We started trying at the ripe age of 26 and finally got pregnant at 33. At that time I had about 8 eggs of mature size. Eight! Let’s rewind- that is about 8 starting from age 30…not good.
However at a healthy, proud age 38 I produced 49 eggs! Forty-nine!!! I was able to have 24 harvested and 19 were beautiful!
Again because of my age and medical history we still used two embryos and luckily had 4 frozen.
I found out Monday I am pregnant with some strong beta levels but I won’t feel happy until I see that beautiful heartbeat. And maybe after the first trimester I will be able to relax…six weeks from now.
Yeah, maybe the body starts weakening with age but there are a number of you out there like me; a fine red wine that gets better with age.
That’s right we are older but not dead so have that family you were meant to have!
Don’t give up!
