Its possible, not probable.

I went to my doctor appointment today and He explained the procedure for getting rid of the polyp. It's a simple D and C with hyperscopy ( not sure of the spelling). Then I explain that I did not want the ablation because my husband and I would still like to have a child.

Please note when I explained this to the nurse who put me in the room to wait for the doctor she looked at my chart twice before replying "your 46!" As if my age was not known to me. I told her I was 41 when I got married and its 5 years later. If I was 21 when I got married and it was 5 years later and decided to have a child that makes sense doesn't it. So I got started late in life. She decided that I was a saint and bowed as she left the room.

The doctor when on to explain the reason why this prospect was improbable. He asked how were my cycles before this constant bleeding problem started. "You could create a calendar based on my cycles" he nodded his head, he asked if my husband had any children. " Yes from a previous marriage " he nodded his head and said you have a slight chance but is not probable.

He then went on to explain that all the stars in Hollywood have babies late in life were on some type of fertility treatment. Or they egg is not their but the sperm may be the husband or may not be and my ADD kicked him totally blanked on what he was saying. Smiled and nodded and said I understand.

I left the office and went to big lots and then to Micheal's and then I went home. I am not sure how 2 hours past but that is what I remember. I explained it all to my husband and he said its not impossible so lets give it a try.

So forward we will go.

I keep telling you about the great aunt who had her FIRST child at 50! In the 50's WITHOUT drugs! So screw the doctor it is probable. Plus you can always do Clomid if you wanted too. I like that your doctor is honest...but really man...be a little optimistic!f

Ok, I'm the pessimist.

Hi! I'm here via Family Of Two. It is extremely rare to have a child at 46 without someone else's (younger) eggs. It seems more likely because it is often a secret. I know a lady IRL right now who is having her second child at 43 with donor eggs, but isn't going to tell anyone.

No harm in trying though. If you are in a hurry, just talk to an RE and get a work up - then you will have more information. I did DE at the ripe old age of 39 (also perfect, regular cycles - even got pregnant 3 times), but I think we were in worse shape because we also had a sperm issue.

Feel free to visit my blog and check out our journey. It was really, really hard for me to move to donor egg; but we have a kid now after 6 years of trying so it was worth it.

Good luck to you however you get to that baby!

BTW, sorry for the "assvice" it is my nature.

Oh, I like to crochet too, but am not very skilled. Will be lurking / posting here and there if you don't mind.

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
