worried that I've run out of time to TTC

Postby CyndiLooWhoo » Thu Feb 05, 2015 8:44 pm

We just had our loss but I'm already consumed with wanting to try again. I'm 39 and while we weren't planning on getting pregnant, we did, and now it seems impossible to go back to the idea of not having a baby on the way.

Is there anyone out there who's older and feeling the stress of time? I worry that I'll just keep having miscarriages because my eggs are so old.

I've heard of plenty of women conceiving and having perfectly healthy babies after 40. Don't lose hope!

Just like you I also worry I am running out of time, being 38 and having 5 chemical pregnancies In 2 years Is making me loose hope. Next month I will be seing a Fertility dr. To see my my options are from there, mean while I'm still trying, even though it breaks my heart everytime it fails.

I'm in the same boat. I'm 41 and I've had one CP, a miracle daughter, then just recently a missed miscarriage in February at 8 weeks, and a miscarriage yesterday at 6 weeks. I'm heartbroken and a mess and I miss being pregnant so badly. We wanted three, but at this rate I know I'm lucky to just have my one. We're taking a break for a few cycles and it just makes me so sad that my body is failing me. I'm not the to to give up, but right now I don't know if I could go through another loss.

I will be 39 this year. I never thought I was too old till I had my MC last month. I have two already but wanted a third. Now I am worried I waited too long. Just got news my SIL is pregnant at 45 and everything is fine so far. So there is hope! Tons of women have babies later in life. It is a little harder but definitely worth it! Good luck to everyone!
