    :dust:Thought I would start a new thread and see if there are any takers!

    I`m Lisa and I am 40 - 41 in August.

    I have 3 children boy 10, girl 7 and boy 23 months.

    I had a first tri loss in July 09 at 8 weeks and a slecond tri loss in Jan this year at 13-14 weeks - LO born sleeping 12.1.12.

    we have now decided to TTC again.

    There are posts for TTC after loss and TTC over 35 but nothing for over 40`s who are TTC after loss.


    At this age the chance of MC we all know is a lot higher. I saw a specialist last week and will be under this clinic.

    They have taken loads of blood and the results will be back in 5-6 weeks, so i go back 19th June - they said if i am PG then that will be great timing. They will also scan me then and every 2 weeks after that.

    Hoping there are other ladies out there in the same position as me and we can help each other through this scary time.:hugs:

    Hi there. I'm 43 now (gulp) and lost my last baby at 6 weeks back in September when I was 42. I have 3 children too, and also had a MMC discovered at 17 weeks in my first pregnancy. I haven't had any tests as to why we miscarried last time but did have an AMH test in January which came back in normal ranges still. This is our 9th cycle TTCAL.

    So sorry for your losses.

    We didn`t have a PM of our baby because we wanted to lay it to rest as soon as possible.

    I am under this specialist clinic who will be testing me for all sorts of things including thyroid and something called sticky bloods. They are testing for 7 different things, any one of which they are saying they can treat.

    If it isn`t any of those, it will just be down to Mother Nature.

    So we will be TTC this weekend and this will be our first cycle. I know as older mom`s the chances are conceiving decrease with our age, but we have to try don`t we?

    wishing lots of luck and sending lots and lots of baby dust your way:dust::dust:

    Hi Dance, we are actually together on another thread but I am also over 40..will be 42 in just a few short weeks. Just a little background. My husband and I have 2 daughters. One from his previous marriage and the other one together although we raised both of them. They are 21 and 19. We lost a surprise pregnancy in January and are trying again but only plan to try for about a year and if it doesn't happen I will take measures to prevent from that point on. I am in a bit of limbo at the moment but do believe I have finally ovulated this month so will test on Mothers Day.

    Hi, it`s nice to know i am not alone. We didn`t plan for a 4th, so it was a big surprise.
    however, we are now trying and i believe i will be OV in the next couple of days.
    fingers crossed we both get our rainbow babies -
    Losing a baby at any age is devastating, but i now feel that time is running out so really hope this time we are lucky (DH will be 43 in August)

    Hi, so sorry for your losses. I'm Donna, 43, with two boys 18 and 5. Had 3 mc's and chemical pg in the last 16 months. My 3rd mc was a little girl with Edwards Syndrome. Am struggling to know what to do now. Am starting to think about donor ivf but still ttc naturally for now in the hope that I get pg and stay pg. Good luck to you both xx

    Hi, I am so sorry for your losses. I really really hope that you get your longed for rainbow.

    Getting pregnant is hard enough at any stage of your life, but as older mom`s we have a disadvantage as nature didn`t intend us to go on for ever, which in a way is very unkind.

    I really hope that all us older mom`s get our longed for rainbows.
    xxxxxxxx

    Hi ladies

    Hope you don't mind me joining.

    I'm 41 (42 in September) and I've got 3 boys 21, (almost 19) and a toddler.

    I had a loss last December at 11.5weeks and a chemical pregnancy this year.

    I'm currently in the 2WW 4DPO today

    :dust: to everyone.

His swimmers do last a long time though as with my 3rd mc we last dtd on cd 8 and I got pg, and with my chemical last month we last dtd on cd9 so it can happen. xx

    A big hi to XANTH, DONNA210369 and DAWN2411 and so sorry for your losses .

    There are really quite a few of us around isn`t there. i will add you all to the list and hopefully we will see some BFP from us soon.

    I had positive OPK on tuesday, but my temp hasn`t risen yet, so not really sure what is going on.

    Good luck to us all and loads and loads of baby dust.
