Hi Paula,

I recently joined the board and like you I'm 45 and feel as if my hope is fading. I'm sorry your having such a difficult day. I'm also trying to be thankful for the children I have and am learning to be content with my circumstances (which is not easy!). I pray that I will have another child but if not for God to take this desire from me. TTC has a way of consuming my entire life and seems to control my emotions. Frankly, I'm tired of the rollercoaster but I'm not yet ready to throw in the towel just yet. Just remember your not alone in this journey and most of us have times we feel the way you do. The one thing that helps me is looking at it as a challenge to become pregnant and thanks to this board I found out about DHEA, which I believe still gives me hope!

Hi Paula, Im sorry your feeling down today(((((HUGS))))) I understand the longing to be a mom again and the time clock not working in our favor. You have every right to feel down BUT you must pick yourself off and keep the faith that eventually someday and somehow you can be a mom again....it may even be through adoption if needed but you CAN be a mom again!!Hang in there and keep trying as we all have heard of many 45yr women who have conceived naturally! Look at Carol i think she is 46!!

I agree with Kim, and I don't think it is over until it is over.

Paula, what you are feeling is completely normal and we all get discouraged, sometimes to the point of throwing in the towel.

Sorry to hear of your bad day. I'm with you in the "just one more club" We both have the blessings of our children we have. But I do understand wanting another. I think I will be a mom forever! Been wondering where you've been lately. Glad you posted. {Hug}

I am 46 and I am 33 weeks pregnant. You probably have read my story but here it is again. My husband had a Vasectomy reversal when I was 40 and 1/2. We already had 4 kids at the time.Two years later, just as I was about to give up I discovered I was pregnant. I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. Two years after his birth, last March, I discovered I was pregnant AGAIN!!! Sadly, I miscarried. 3 months later, 3 days after my Mom passed away and 2 weeks before my 46th birthday, I discovered once again I was pregnant.Now at 33 weeks I am here to tell you Miracles do happen!!! Often when you least expect it.God has a plan. Trust and believe things will be exactly as they should be.


I am 25 weeks and started t
