I've just my second chemical pregnancy in 2 months and it has left me feeling very disheartened. I'm 43 and have a beautiful 11 month old daughter, I had a miscarriage before being blessed with her and this last cp has been almost as painful, physically and mentally, as that 1st loss. We are are desperate to concieve another child but this is really taking it's toll on me. I know we'll carry on trying (OH is happy to stop as he can see I'm finding it very stressful) as I want another child so much but the thought of conceiving again only to miscarry again terrifies me. I really need some words of encouragement! Should I be happy with what I've got and accept that I'm just too old? Aaargh!

Thanks for replying. Funny you should mention stress, I think that might've been a contributing factor. I'm feeling more positive now but don't know how I'd be if I had another setback. Good luck xx

Oh, I am so sorry to hear about that. Two CPs in two months is two too many. Have you talked to an RE? Could you have a problem with low progesterone, maybe? Our egg quality definitely declines as we get older, but perhaps you have a hormonal issue that could be fixed. Hang in there and don't give up -- clearly you can GET pregnant, and that's half the battle. You just need that sticky bean!

I'm very sorry to hear about your losses. ttc is definitely an evil rollercoaster of emotional dreams and losses.

have you thought about IVF? Sounds as if you are definitely ovulating. It could increase your chances of success. Your insurance might cover it as well.

best,
