I'm 42 - We got married late - thus had children late - we got pregnant the first time 2 weeks after our honeymoon (I was 38). Miscarried at 11 wks - tried again - miscarried at 8 wks - tried again after seeing a reproductive endocrinologist - amnio results showed trisomy 18 - fatal disorder - lost baby at 18 wks. - tried again using specialist and drugs :) and had our miracle boy - Ashton, now 19 mos. Just had to have a d&c because there was no heartbeat at 7 wks (on 07/02/04) - . Now we are trying to decide whether or not to try to conceive doing all of the medically necessary things we did to get Ashton - this past pregnancy was not planned and "just happened." I am in a quandry about whether or not I can go through all of that again and possibly lose another baby. Just trying to gather my thoughts here and find out if anyone else has had some similar problems. I go to the Dr. for my follow-up on Wednesday and he will give me the results of the chromosome tests they did from the D&C, not sure if I want to know...
