Hey MeToo14, I haven't done it yet, but really considering it next year- also will be 3 years of arimidex and zoladex. I have similar stats to you. I was dx st 34, now 37 and no kids. Did go through Ivf prior to chemo and had two embryos put on ice. My onco has said ideally I would be on arimidex for full five years, but she recently said minimum would be 3 years because of my nodes I think.
There is also the 'Positive' trial happening which is looking at women interrupting their hormone therapy and then going back on it after having the baby. Unfortunately though the results won't be out for several years.
I totally think it's possible to have a baby after ER+ Bc after hormone therapy and an onco said to me it's not that a pregnancy would necessarily cause anything adverse, but it's just waiting that period of time when it could be most risky due to stats.
What does your onco say? It's so hard, esp being our age. Part of me thinks I obviously don't want to risk my life and other part thinks to hell with cancer, I'm not letting it take anymore especially something as natural as having a baby. I'm definitely leaning towards the latter and I do everything else within my control (exercise and diet)to remain fit and healthy.
Best of luck with it,I hope everything works out for you.
