Hey Joan, looks like there are at least the three of us who are giving it to the end of the year! I am glad to hear you are feeling hopeful, so am I, so maybe it will happen for all of us very soon!

Many hugs to you Jeanne. I remember seeing you before and am so glad you are back. (Sorry I am late posting this, I have only been here sporadically due to company.)

I also think 41 is still young, I am 44 and still hoping for one more. I am so sorry for your losses, it is so hard. I also lost a baby at the end of the first trimester, (the end of January) and within 6 months of a previous m/c. I opted out of the D&C though, and am so thankful I did. I only mention my m/c's so you know that you are not alone in wanting to try again even though that loss is always so close. We too are only trying until my next birthday which is in January, so hopefully things happen before that or I will have to face letting go of that dream. I hope it happens soon for all of us.

I hope your new RE can give you some good help in regard to your uterine lining, that has to be so frustrating. Part of the reason I wanted to avoid the D&C. I know they are sometimes necessary though, I just did not like what the one I had several years ago did to me personally.

Hang in there, I am glad to see you back and getting the support you need for this roller coaster!

Oh my gosh you guys, you all brought tears to my eyes. While wallowing in my misery and uncertainty over the past few months I FORGOT how important support from people WHO UNDERSTAND is...I don't have much IRL support. Kindness, but no true understanding. I've missed you and thank you all. I look forward to supporting one another and I should have come back much sooner.

Oh jeanne :(
I am so sorry to read this post. I have wondered a couple times where you went. I can't imagine what you've been thru.
At almost 45 (and feeling like a 30 something), I don't in my wildest imagination think 41 is old... I would trade in a second!!
Follow your heart, you know that is what you have to do.

take care.

Hello Jeanne,
So sorry for your loss. I am new to the board after our m/c last month. I can relate so well to your situation. I will be 41 this month, have 2 kids, and lost our baby at about 16 weeks. And I agree with you ... Being 41 sucks!!
I have been doing the soul searching, evaluating the family, envisioning what our future should be etc etc. DH and I are so regretting not trying sooner (younger child is almost 9). I am mentally drained from all this along with the grieving which seems to just sit in the pit of my stomach. I ache with it everyday. I can really hear what you're saying.
But I am also wondering how disheartened I should be. It's hard to sort thru all the doom/gloom from doc and then be torn when I see so many success stories like the ones on this board. I too am very afraid of what another loss could do to us. Perhaps we both should: #1 be patient with our bodies and #2 try to focus on the positive even though it is so scary.
Wishing you all that you hope for.
Taylor
