    Hi
    I'm sorry for your miscarriages, are you being investigated after having 4? I've not had a miscarriage, I get pregnant okay but have pretty bad pregnancies,(my uterus is the wrong shape). My first baby was stillborn at 24 weeks and then I went on to have my daughter (9) and son (6), going into labour from 24 weeks with both.
    So I don't know much about it I'm afraid but I'm sure your GP could help and refer you on for investigations and support. I'm 37 (38 in nov) and an about to start trying again next month after hubby's vasectomy reversal, and I'm a bit worried about the age but older women are having babies all the time.
    Have you seen your GP?
    Sending you lots of :hug: + make sure you get support + advice ASAP
    The girls here are great (I'm new too) and most of them know more than the docs!
    Good luck, here's hoping you get a sticky bean soon
    xxxxxxxxx

    Hi fruitybabe lots of :hug: and hopefully you get your :bfp: very soon.
    Sorry to hear about your m/c I am very lucky and as far as I know have never been through that.
    What has the doctor said about your m/c and your reasons for them.
    You can find out lots of info on here from vitamins and minerals to take that have helped others, also other peoples experiences with ttc.
    I am almost 44yrs I have children already, my youngest is 14yrs, my OH(45yrs) has no children so we would like to have at least one before its too late for us both.
    I wish you lots of luck, keep asking lots of questions as someone here will know the answer I am sure, its a really friendly site :hug: x

    Thanku everyone for ur support, im so sorry Suki i feel for u i really do, i had a specialist after my fourth misscarriage but they couldnt find anything wrong, but the weird thing was every time i got pregnant when i had an internal i started to bleed then lost, and on the last one i went for an early scan because the doctors wanted to keep an eye on the pregnancy and they used a massive (huge eye popping) scanning thing that they insert inside you, and i got labour type pains as soon as she took it out after scanning and they took me straight down to theatre as i lost again. So im pretty scared at the moment, my doctor just says keep trying and keep ur fingers and legs crossed afterwards, which i didnt find funny at the time

    Heres hoping, and your all so loving and supportive u really have made me feel better in myself thanku x

    Hi Fruitybabe, just wishing you good luck. It must be so hard to go through the joy of pregnancy to then have to cope with the loss. I really hope number 5 will be the right one for you. I understand the specialist hasn't found anything wrong, but is there anything you could take that might help prevent it? Clearly no early investigations this time, but I also heard that taking some aspirin can help even when no cause has been identified (of course under the care of a professional).


    Many :hug: to you.

    Hi Fruitybabe,

    I am also 38 will be 39 in July. I dont think I am too old to have a child as a couple of friends both had babies at 39. I feel better and healthily now than when I was 28!! I guess you just feel that time is running out! But I am sure everything will come good for you.

    I wish you the best of luck xxxx

    Fruitybabe,

    I am sorry to read of your earlier losses and it can't be easy for you thinking of them. However, fear not that time may be running out for you. I'm 40 and am just pregnant after a 12 year gap from my youngest, so as I keep saying here; keep the faith, pet. I hope to see your :bfp: announcement real soon!

    Loads of lovely girls here to help with questions and just to rant to.

    Take care

    I'm too 38 (39 in November). It is strange how I feel young at heart in many ways, but when it comes to conception, I'm persuaded I am sooooo old. I guess it is all the things we read about fertility decreasing at the speed of light after 35. My grand mother was 45 when she had my mum (first child), my mum 42 when she had my sister (20 years after having me), so really, I should consider myself old at all.

    oops, I did mean to write shouldn't :dohh:
    Could sudden dizziness be a symptom of pregnancy?

    Like Firkin, I've never been so fit and healthy. The only thing that scares me is fatigue. My two are now at the age when I feel slightly normal again (hence the fit and healthy) and the idea of having to live with constant exhaustion again for another few years is a bit frigthening, but I know that it will be all worth it. It will be my partner's first child too and that will be extra special.
