It is such a hard decision, OP, especially with such a young baby. I am also 38 and we have an 18 month old from IVF. I still BF her round the clock. Our FS reckons it's fine to do FETs while breastfeeding, as long as ovulation is occuring and progesterone levels are normal. He says it makes no difference to the success rate. I am a little skeptical since other FSs have different opinions, but I haven't quizzed him further about this. In a way I don't care - even if it reduces our chance of success a little, I am happy to make that compromise. I am not willing to wean my DD before she is ready for the possibility of a sibling that may never exist. So if our FS is wrong, and the chance of success is reduced somewhat by BFing, that's a chance I'm willing to take, IYKWIM.
We are currently monitoring my cycles, which are still a bit wacky, and planning to do a transfer as soon as we've confirmed that I'm ovulating normally, and pinpointed when ovulation occurs.
