Jellybean....ugh clomid made me crazy!!!!! Regarding that article, yes, the chances of miscarriage are a lot higher in the 40's but mainly because of chromosomally abnormal eggs. However, I know a lot of women in their 40's who have successful pregnancies with zero birth defects. In fact, the rate of women who are having babies in their 40's increased last year. It was the only age group with an increase in births. I say keep trying and hope to catch that good egg!

Thanks Fittblonde . Feeling more rational today despite being snappy at work. I am normally a very positive person but embarking on this journey does bring on heart searching . I am so grateful to this forum as a place you can safely express your feelings .many thanks again wishing for that good egg and good luck to you x
