I honestly don't know where this leaves me. We had stopped trying, then this happens. I think we'll probably take the "if it happens, great" route. If not, I'm still the most blessed mommy ever. I just want to do this mommy thing forever, though! How's your pregnancy going?

It's so hard not to keep trying! I get it. Six weeks and counting!

It's been a rough month (who am I kidding - it's been a rough year or two!) as my bv came back with a vengeance after ovulation last month, I had some virus that made me hurt all over (but I'm a mom, so no slowing down), my second son graduated high school, we have been having money problems, and my husband travelling during baseball season. Life is just super hard right now and I can't handle more stress. I'm praying for you all, though, and will check in periodically.


Hi Momof9treasures,

If your username means you have nine children, Godbless you and Godspeed to you, super woman.

I’m sorry about the challenges you’re facing. If the BV is recurrent and you’re having virus-like body aches, you should get tested for the HSV 2 virus. It’s not part of most STI panels. If you haven’t been tested, please don’t think for 5 minutes- it’s super common, most people are asymptomatic, and if it is the cause you will get relief. Sending positive thoughts your way.

Yes, I have 9 children from 2 to 20! I was done but since we don't prevent, I ended up having multiple chemical pregnancies. Then I was done again, and had another chemical. I don't know where I stand now. The bv was caused by evening primrose oil! I don't know why I reacted so badly to it, or why it took me 6 months to figure out, but I'll never take it again.

I'm so glad you figured it out! I know that was miserable for you.

TTC at forty is difficult. Age plays a huge role. However, you shouldn't feel too bad about it. Sending my prayers and love for you. I'd suggest you visit a fertility clinic. That must be your best shot. Good luck to you and lots of baby dust!

I think you should visit a RE and ask for her. Also, both of you should get your self tested. Something could be wrong with your husband as well. However, don't worry! I am sure there is nothing too serious to worry about. The tests will just answer all the answers for you. Good luck to you. Sending baby dust your way.

Is this thread still "on"? I just wanted to pop on and let you guys know I am still pregnant and about to give birth to a perfectly healthy baby girl #2 after 40! I'm 43 now. Just wanted to give some hope!
