I'm glad your giving it another shot, you deserve your rainbow baby I wish you all the luck in the world! I love Italy, gorgeous place, enjoy your holiday and well done on the weight loss xx

I'm 12dpo today, AF not due until Saturday. I always find the first part of the tww goes so fast and once I get to around 10dpo it just slows down and drags......
Next session of acupuncture is Thursday, she has put me down to every 3 weeks now?? hope thats enough, I really have no idea how often is best, just taking her word for it.

Hi Staces. Yep, I would trust her if she thinks that's enough. It's good, hopefully means all your levels, hormones etc are in a good place.

Hope so! She takes my pulse after each treatment and says these are good so I will go with what she says!

HI ladies, I just wandered how many of you (if any) are taking COQ10/Ubiquinol and how much you take? I was taking coq10 600mg last year and then switched to ubiquinol in May and take 300mg, and has anyone heard of PQQ? it is said to compliment ubiquinol....

Me I take Ubiquinol, 300 per day. I took pqq one month but never re-ordered it, I think just because I already take so many vitamins.

I've just has my amh re-tested and it's improved. Not sure if that's down to the Ubiquinol, reflexology or acupuncture.

I've been taken Ubiquinol for 4 months, caught pregnant last month but lost it. I usually buy a cheaper version on Amazon but this time I bought pharma Nord which is expensive but worth a shot, I'm only taking one 100mg capsule a day. xx

Hi ladies, what supplements would you recommend taking for the more 'mature' woman. I'm 37 and ttc our first.

Staces I had been taking q10 but then stopped, my current Vitamin regime is
Morning I take eltroxin for my thyroid plus folic acid
Afternoon Evening Primrose oil / Omega 3 &9 / zinc & Vit C
Bedtime magnesium and vitamin D (I have to take these at bedtime as thy can interfere with my Eltroxin for my thyroid)

Not sure if they are making any difference, but I feel calmer, my nails are stronger, I'm ovulating on day 14/ 15/ 16, I'm not feeling too warm iin bed, though my periods are now only 2 days long so I do think my hormone levels are changing though I got Day 3 & day21 profiles done in September and the results were really good so consultant thought I'm still ovulating & showed no signs of menopause (even the word sends a chill down my spine )

Syd, Thats good news, never had mine tested! Maybe I should, but sometimes i think that ignorance is bliss.. I do think the acupuncture has helped with my cycles though and even though af is still short it seems less painful and a better colour.

Lillith, I pay almost £30 but there are 120 capsuals so it does work out cheaper in the long run, especially as i am taking 3 a day!

Hi Sunnydays! Well firstly 37 is still young (dont let them tell you otherwise) I would definetly start on folic acid if your not already, either within a multivitamin or on its own, thats one of the most important. There is a thread on here somewhere with a list of vitamins and what they do, i will see if i can find it and post here. Good luck x

Clementine, Ugh the M word fills me with dread Thats good about your results, my periods are only 2 days long and then i sometimes get a little brown blood for a day or two. As long as you get at least one day of full flow red bleeding thats fine.

Oh I also take low dose asprin, my acupunturist mentioned it the other day actually as i have had previous losses, but i said i have been taking it already.

I thought this was interesting about OPK's....
Age:
For some, the OPK turns positive a couple of days before ovulation. For others, itís the day before. The older you get, the shorter the interval of time between a detectable surge in LH and the release of your egg. By the time you are in your late 30ís, the LH surge may come on the very day you ovulate. And by the time you are over 40, the egg may have already been released by the time you have enough LH in your urine to turn a kit positive.

I didn't realise age affected the LH surge, I'm wandering now if i should be dtd earlier than I am? Just one more think to worry about

Oh blooming heck, never heard that about opk tests before I'm CD7 today and we had sex last night to clear the older swimmers out, but now I think we might have to keep having sex up to and beyond a positive opk test. I'll be knackered!!

Oh joy, something else for us to worry about!

I usually go for a couple of nights before ovulation (I'm pretty consistently cd 15) as we only generally manage once around that period. In theory I thought I was covered because I've always assumed I ovulate the night that I get a positive opk just because I go from not quite positive one day, to strong positive the next, to negative the following morning. I guess it may be happening even earlier than I thought.

I had my first baby 6 days after my 40th birthday. Really easy pregnancy and my midwife said I was the healthiest mum on her books! Oscar was perfect and scored a 10 on every test when he was born! He's now 2 and is the equivalent of a 3 year old according to his 2 year check! Very clever! We are currently trying for baby number 2! In the frustrating tww now! I don't feel 40+ is old at all! Certainly the best age for me to start a family! Good luck everyone, oh, and just to warn you, we are called geriatric mums when you're over 35!!
