    Turtle83:  Happy Birthday! So sorry to hear about the news you received today.

    FreckledFox:  April 29th is probably as close as you can get to May! Plus, even if the due date is in April the baby may come in May and if the due date is in May the baby could come in April.

    Turtle83:  Oh sweetie, I’m so sorry to hear that!  What awful news to tell you over the phone, and on your birthday nonetheless.  I don’t know anything about the AMH test but I think there are a few women on the +1 thread that have been through this.  Maybe there is some medication that can boost the quality of your eggs, before you have to think about IVF?  Big hugs to you and I hope the rest of your Birthday gets better.

    octoberbaby:  May was just the month that my DH and I agreed we’d love to have a baby’s birthday in. I guess it doesn’t have to be May exactly, but he’ll think up any reason to stall!

    Turtle83:  Oh my gosh honey, super hugs.  πŸ™  Happy Freaking birthday… damn.  πŸ™  I feel for you. Is there anything else she said you could try? Supplements? Fairhaven health’s website send me emails all the time about fertility boosting supplements. Maybe google and see if there is anything else? The egg reserve I don’t know if that can be helped, but i know Pregnitude is supposed to help with quality. *SUPER HUGS* I wish I could help.  πŸ™  Is IVF covered at all by your insurance? :/

    emsy3110:  Oh yes, I understand! I’d be okay with an April May or June baby for sure. And I know that I can’t really plan ANYthing! It happens when the universe let’s it happen.

    FreckledFox:  I see! I hope he doesn’t stall! I had my “dream” months before too but now I’ll just take anything I can get. I can’t believe I’m going into cycle 10… double digits πŸ™

    Turtle83:  Ugh. My heart just sank when I read this. I am so sorry, Turtle. I wish I had some advice or experience. I don’t, but I do believe that one way or another, a wonderful babe will find its way to you! πŸ™‚

    I hope you can still enjoy some part of your birthday!

    FreckledFox:  May is a nice time to have a baby . . . if your labor and recovery go well! I was on my ass for most of the summer and kind of wish I’d suffered through the winter months instead. We are hoping for a winter baby this time around, but like octoberbaby, we realize that nothing is in our control.

    octoberbaby:  You will get your little one soon! I know it!!

    daybyday:  The “pie in the sky” hope (and obviously who knows what will happen), is that we give birth in May and then I have the warm weather to help me get up and go for walks with baby in the stroller and help get my body back before summer vacation in July or August. I’m a crazy planner.  πŸ˜‰ But I have to let go.

    daybyday:  said about recovering during winter and then when baby is older and more fun to enjoy summer with them… not that newborns aren’t fun but you know… new plan in action for sure!

    octoberbaby:  Definitely understand that! I worry because I’m succeptable to seasonal depression, so winter months are not my friend.. October would be my cut-off.. and then April or May the next year.  πŸ™‚

    Turtle83:  I’ve seen a lot about something called DHEA, and I think it’s still over the counter. I think most take it 1x a day at 75mgs. Do you know your “number”? I’ve also read that since the AMH test is somewhat “new”, it’s not necessarily a test that everyone puts the same amount of emphasis on.  

    As far as the future for you, there are still things you can do. I think that right now you’re still seeing an OB, yes? If deemed necessary by her, an RE will be able to guide you to the next steps a little more. 

    I am so sorry that you are going through this ON YOUR BIRTHDAY. πŸ™

    I am thinking of you.

    Turtle83:  I’m so sorry this happened… but I’ve been there and I have some possibly encouraging words for you.  I was diagnosed (by my primary care physician, OB/GYN, and RE) with possible low ovarian reserve after my CD3 blood work revealed high FSH levels (it was repeated at least 4 times and was always too high).  High FSH and low AMH typically go hand-in-hand.  I was only 28 when I was diagnosed and it weighed so heavily on my mind that when I was 30 I went through the process of having my eggs frozen.  I cleared out all of my savings to have this done and in the end they were able to freeze a lot of eggs from one cycle… way more than they thought they would from someone with low ovarian reserve.  I said to them, “But I thought I was supposed to have a problem??!!”  Their response was that some people just have naturally elevated levels, and that your age trumps any bad numbers.  So you still have age in your favor!!  Have they done an AFC (antral follicle count) yet?  This will give you a better idea of what’s going on.  On CD3 they do a vaginal ultrasound to count the follicles on each ovary.  Hang in there!  I know exactly how you’re feeling.

    Turtle83:  I’m so sorry, Turtle. That really is a shitty thing to happen on your birthday. I hope you  will be able to put in a corner of your mond for the rest of your day. Lots of hugs to you and a very happy birthday nonetheless.
