How many weeks pregnant now? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?

What is preeseed and ttc?

Preeseed is a lubricant that's better suited for when you're trying to conceive.TTC= trying to conceive

You should not drink alcohol because it could cause fetal alcohol syndrome. Take folate (folic acid). Your egg quality is not so good because of your age. But you got pregnant last February. There is a still chance to get pregnant, but possibility of a miscarriage is higher because of your egg quality. IVF can check if your fertilized eggs have chromosomal abnormality or not. Then they can put only healthy fertilized eggs back into your uterus.
