Do the Duggars really have room for one more? 20 kids and counting is the latest announcement from the family that keeps on growing.
advanced maternal age
We have been trying to conceive for 9 months now so last month I had my progesterone blood levels checked on day 21. They came back as 14 which my doctor says indicates I did ovulate. However I have been looking things up on the net and they all seem to say levels need to above 30 for ovulation.
I am 42, have a 20 month old who was conceived 2nd month of trying and then had one miscarriage conceived after 2 months as well. I am worried now that due to my age I have run out of eggs. Is my doctor mistaken?
I just found out that I'm pregnant with my 5th child. My oldest will be 20 and my youngest just turned 10. Surprise, right.
Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I am 40 years old with 3 children already. I had a miscarriage almost a year ago, and now I'm 8 weeks pregnant.
I went last week to my ob-gyn and had the vaginal and the regular ultrasound but the Dr. couldn't find a heartbeat. Is this normal? Dr said that maybe is too early.
I am 40. I have a 20 yr old and I 5 year old. Before the 5 yr old was conceived I was told I could not have anymore children. After I had the 5yr old. I got the IUD. on 2-11-09 I had it removed.
What are my chances in getting pregnant again? I wouldn't mind it. I am already a week late and happy.
Even if you're as healthy as a horse and your uterus is chugging along just fine, your age might still mean the difference between a C-section and a vaginal delivery.
Dear Ms Ultrasound,
I was scheduled for a first trimester screening in my 11th week due to my advanced age; unfortunately, the perinatologist was of very little help because he basically lectured me on how difficult it is to do ultrasound in obese patients!
