ladybparis - May 15

Hello everyone, I just got off the phone with my bf who was told by her doctor that at 41 she could no longer have a baby... she has two from a prior marriage, is now in love with a wonderful man and has tried unsuccessfuly for months to have another baby. She is in tears. I am so upset for her that I want to share my story. I had my first baby at 40 after a "condom" accident, pure luck. I then tried at 42 to have a second baby. No such luck for over a year, I then -secretly- took 50mg of DHEA daily on top of clomid and progesterone treatment under medical surveillance I was also on a diet and lost about 25lbs in 6 months. I was slightly overweight and losing the weight I knew was going to improve my chances. I ditched the DHEA after about 6 months and got pregnant 2 months later at 43 and 8 months. My little boy is now asleep next door. Doctors are very dismissive of women who desire a baby past 40 yet It is not so uncommon, we take better care of ourselves than our mothers ever did, we exercise, eat better and yes, we can get pregnant, with sometimes a little help from some pills. for me losing weight + Clomid + DHEA did it (oh, and the babydaddy nacht)
Good luck to all of you.
I am now 44 past 8 months, and have a 4 months old babyboy and a 4 years old little girl.
