Very low AMH (0.76) - is it worth having another go?

thanks for your responses everyone! I had my FSH tested on cycle day 2 and am waiting to hear what the Dr thinks. My FSH was 11.8 which is apparently ok. (the nurse said it's in the normal range, and my Dr said it wouldn't really be worth trying if it would be above 15). I've got a cyst at the moment and some 'dominant follicles' after having a scan last week (due to mid cycle bleeding) but my womb apparently looks clear and healthy enough. I'd like to have another go, and like you say Claire, i...

Very low AMH (0.76) - is it worth having another go?

Hi all, I'm just 42 and have just got my AMH results. a shockingly bad 0.76. I wasn't expecting anything great, but I'm shocked it's that low (3 is considered very low!) I was very very lucky to have a successful (long protocol) ICSI in 2009 and I have a beautiful DD. I really want to try again, although I'm obviously 3 yrs older now. I tried again with a short protocol in August last year, got 3 follicles and 2 eggs, 1 of which was transfered (got a BFN). But I felt that cycle was rushed and gu...

Hi all, hope you're doing well. well, my AMH level was appallingly low 0.76 !! anything under 3 is considered very low. So I really don't have much hope, but Ariel, I'd consider your 5.1 good enough, I wish mine was that high, then I'd definitely go for it! How was your scan? I've got everything crossed for you. Dr R is really nice btw. very realistic, sympathetic and seems to know her stuff. She explained everything really well to me. I still feel like I want to at least try.... I dunno... it's...

Hi there, I've got a first consultation with Mrs R on Tuesday! Just wanting to see if it;s worth me trying again. I'm glad there seems to be positive comments about the priory. I'll be private too (over 40 and I have one child already from ICSI in 2009). good luck everyone! xx

Ding Ding...Round 2!

Hi Pheobe, I remember you from last time, I think we got pregnant at the same time I'm about to start my 3rd round (2nd one worked) of ICSI as soon as AF arrives, which should be in the next 2 days picked up all my meds today. if all goes well I'll have EC and ET in about 2 weeks. It's not as scary as last time and I'm kind of worried I'm being a bit too lax about it all. I feel so blessed to have our DD - anything more would be an amazing bonus. I'm 41 now so kind of feel like this is my last s...

not eating anymore....

Hi, Amelie has also slowed right down on eating (she's 11 months old now) . I put it down to increased independence and teeth. She's got 7 teeth now, but I think more are coming through. What's annoying me though, is that she always seems to want to fall asleep at meal times now, so I have to let her nap, then try to feed her afterwards (which means that lunchtime ends up being around 2.30 and breakfast around 10.30). This isn't ideal at all. Either that or she just plays around and almost seems...

10 month old waking in the night and won't settle.

girls, thanks so much! Scottie, sorry you're having trouble too. But I have to say it does kind of make me feel better just because I know I'm not on my own. Well done B walking already bang goes any free time for you now eh?! I don't think A is hungry cos when I feed her in the night, she just nibbles for 5 mins and goes straight to sleep! Jessica, your tips are great. I'll try them tonight, and I like the idea of trying to find her a soother. She used to suck her thumb but gave up at 7 months ...

10 month old waking in the night and won't settle.

Hi all, I'm sorry I haven't been on here for ages - I've had a pretty rough year (losing my mum, moving to a new country....), so I'm sorry for reaching out to your guys in my hour of need now! Amelie, up until recently was a fairly good sleeper. Since her teeth started coming through, it's been on and off, and now she's crawling and cruising around it's got even worse. Add to that the fact that we just spent the last 4 weeks in Berlin, then Bristol then Berlin again and then (last night) back t...

Hi all, been off here for ages.... glad to see you all seem to be doing well. the weather here in Boston has been unbearably hot (36 degrees the other day ) but it's bearable again now. Amelie was just sleeping in her sleepsuit then, and now we just put her in that and a thin growbag, and if it gets hot, i unzip it a bit. I'm still BFing most of the time and she's eating 3 solid meals a day, which she loves. I intend to BF til she's a year if she wants it. She's around 17lbs now I think - around...

My Twin Breastfeeding Experience

wow, well done on the BFing and getting them a little chubbiness already you're doing a great job. I've had blocked milk ducts a couple of times. As well as Quark (when I was in germany) I also put warm flannels on before feeding and pumped off anything they didn't drink afterwards. It does make you feel pretty rotten though doesn't it? Added to tiredness, it's like being on another planet. So pleased you're doing so well, and good luck for when DH goes back to work! Kisses to Finn and Lukas fro...

Scottie, we seem to be doing everything exactly the same. I didn't want to start A on solids until 6 months and I waited til she was exactly that. Their tummies aren't really ready for potential bugs and allergies/intolerances any earlier. I know it's exciting to start things as soon as possible, but they're babies for such a short time, enjoy each moment and don't rush anything. I've also been told and read, that you should try one food at a time for a minimum of 3 days before moving onto the n...

Hi girls, wow, scottie you're doing well on the food. A has only tried baby rice with BM and sweet potato mash so far, which she likes. Sharon, a tooth clap nice work! A also has no teeth yet Scottie, and has only rolled over once! she's so lazy - if I put her on her front she just puts her forehead on her forearm and whinges. she can sit up though, so I think she just can't be bothered. I'm not worried about it, I'm in no rush to have her scooting round the flat before time! She has her 6 month...

Scottie, ignore my gluten thing, I just re-read what I'd read up and it's under 6 months that you shouldn't give gluten - sorry! Well A just woke up crying again, just 2 hours after i put her down. I'm now wondering if it's emotional.... She's been moved from pillar to post in the last 4 months and been in so many different beds. 3 days ago we got back from a 2 night break to Cape Cod (beautiful place btw) and she started the waking up thing the night we got back. I only have to BF her briefly a...

Hi girls, I haven't been on for ages because I've had a horrendous few months. I lost my mum on March 26th and spent 2 months in Bristol to be with her til the end. It was horrible as you can imagine, and now I'm back in Boston trying to get on with things. Luckily Amelie has been a shining light the whole way through and she really is a perfect baby She adjusted to time differences and jetlag with no problems, she flew without being bothered by any of it and she sleeps right through the night, ...

coping with losing my mum and having a 4 month old baby. Advice please.

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for being so great. FZ isn't just support for fertility issues but great support in general I decided to stay and it's definitely the right decision. I'm tired, (the emotional stress really takes it out of you) but coping. Amelie is of course a massive joy to me and my mum and I tell my mum daily how well she brought us 3 up (me and my brothers) and how we owe so much to her. We still don't know how long she has, she's still fighting - she's such a brave...

coping with losing my mum and having a 4 month old baby. Advice please.

thanks for your kind words, I should add that I'm expressing as much milk as I can in preparation for when the time comes and I maybe have to leave A with DH or a sitter for a few hours (although she still won't take a bottle, I've bought a sippy cup to see it that'll work. I guess if she's hungry, she'll have to drink from them at some point) And for anyone that doesn't know - we're living in the USA for a year so flying to and fro is not an option. Amelie is a constant source of joy to both me...

coping with losing my mum and having a 4 month old baby. Advice please.

Hello everyone, I haven't been on here for a while because my life has been turned upside down by the rapid deterioration in my mum's health and having to fly back to england with little A and all that that involves. My mum has end stage cancer and has been in the hospice for a week (I looked after her at her home for 9 days before she got too ill to be at home), she's deteriorating fast and the Drs think she only has a few days left I have a permanent heavy heart and am in another world at the ...

Hi girls, thanks for your kind words. I'm in Bristol now, after a long 2 flights to get here yesterday. Amelie was an star the whole time, which made it easier (I was flying alone with her). We had terrible jetlag and after me not sleeping for 36 hours A had a screaming and crying session last night that lasted 3 hours finally went to sleep at gone midnight (but we slept til 11am . Nothing I could do would calm her down. Sometimes when she's tired she gets herself in such a state. She fights sle...
