We were also induced at 39 weeks due to advanced maternal age. Dr said risk of still birth was way to high.

1999 natural delivery - girl
2001 natural delivery - girl, her birth was fast and she was large, resulted in Prolapses of all 3
2003 - 2 miscarriages, 2nd MC I was at 21 weeks
2004 - 2 miscarriages
2005 - 1 miscarriage2005 - after receiving no answers as to why I kept having miscarriages (all my tests were normal) I had a partial hysterectomy to repair the prolapses
2007 - Divorced
2011 - my new spouse has no children of his own, we met with Genesis to start the surrogacy process. Found out when we met our RE that my ex husband had a chromosome deficiency and this was the reason for the miscarriages.
2013 - we have a great GS and are ready to start the process
DH and I both are 43
July 8/13 - I started BCP, my GS started Synarel
July18/13 - My GS starts Estrace
July 30/113 - I started Menopur and Bravelle injections
Aug 6/13 - Follicles growing nicely, ER date changed to Aug 10th or 11th.
Aug 11/13 - retrieved 7 eggs, procedure went well
Aug 12/13 - 6 eggs fertilized

Aug 14/13 - transferred 3 - day 3 embryos into my GS. Fingers crossed!!
Aug 22/13 - HPT BFP!!! th_abfp.gif
Aug 27/13 - Beta 476 preggo.gif SO HAPPY!!!!<p> 
Sept 3/13 - Beta 14738. Holy crap!!!
Sept 12/13 -U/S 6 weeks 2 days. Everything is perfect. 1 little bean in there due to join our family May 5/14.

Sept 26/13 -U/S showed the babe stopped growing about a week ago, no heart beat found cry.gif

Sept 29/13 - Miscarriage

 

Cycle # 2

Dec 31/13 - GS started BCP

Jan 1/14 - I started BCP, my GS started Synarel

Jan 9/14 - GS started Estrace

Jan 16/14 - GS had her lining checked.  It's 10.5 mm.  I stop BCP

Jan 21/14 - Start Menopur and Bravelle

Feb/14 - transferred 4 - 2 days embryos. 

BFN

 

Cycle # 3  Here we go again!!!  Fingers crossed!

May 12/14 I started BCP, my GS started Synarel

May 29/14 - GS lining is over 8 mm, I stop BCP

Jun 3/14 - I start injections.

This cycle ended up being a FET due to my GS having some breakthrough bleeding prior to transfer.  It was a blessing in disguise.  On day 5 we had 2 perfect embryos and 2 not so good.  They told us they would freeze them on day 6.  On day 6 they had all arrested. cry.gif .  On to doing an FET with our one and only frozen embryo.

 

FET

August 26/14 - Transferred a 6 day embryo

September 5/14 - very faint BFP on HPT.  Fingers crossed this one works out!

Oct 10/14 - U/S shows 1 8w5d fetus!!!  yahoo.gif due date is May 17/15.preggo.gif

Nov 14/14 - Nuchal Translucency U/S  all is great!!  Measuring ahead by 1 day 13w6d!

Best guidance is to meet with a fertility specialist to review your specific situation and go from there.

 

Good luck!
