I'm 38, second miscarriage last week...
We have been lucky that we have been able to conceive fairly quickly which is good because I was told due to my age that it may be hard. But when I fall pregnant I just can't seem to hold the baby and miscarriage in early stages.
My last miscarriage happened last week and I'm still recovering from it. I saw the gyno for the first time yesterday and he has given me a list of blood tests to have done (one I complete this miscarriage and have my next cycle).
He said to see if anything comes back from the bloods. Hopefully there may be something there that could be fixed and we may be able to have a healthy pregnancy. My fingers are crossed. I hate the waiting, will now have to wait another 4-6 weeks or so before I can even get the bloods done.
He said the next stage after that would be chromosonal testing, but that would only tell me why we miscarriage, not how we could fix it.
Afer that would be IVF. Something that my husband and I don't think we could go through, both financially or emotionally.
We want nothing more than to have a little bub and all this is just scary stuff. My husband is trying to be positive and just take one thing at a time. I'm trying, but it's so hard not to do all the "what ifs".
I'm overweight (about 90kgs) and have put on more in this last stressful week. I think it's time I change my thinking, get out and exercise, start feeling better about myself and yes try and be positive! It's hard but I need to be strong. I am extremely lucky that I have a supportive husband and family.
