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.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

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…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
