Very inspiring, thank you for sharing your story. I lost 16 embryos before having my son at 38 years of age, when I was finally diagnosed with a fertility immunological issue. Then I had my daughter at 40, she was conceived at our first attempt. Our gorgeous third child was an absolute bonus at However, if I was childless, I would keep on going no matter what, until I had any eggs left.

Good luck with your writings Tracy! Thanks for your comment, Henriett. I had my IUD removed 3 months ago I had the para-guard non hormonal. Thanks for your comment. Other readers might be having the same question.
Wishing you all the best and continued health,. So I do pray about it and hope for the best. Hi thank you for sharing your experience. I cannot begin to imagine what it must feel like to finally hold your baby in your arms. How beautiful and warming to the heart. I will be 45 in a few months and unfortunately have not been able to conceive.
Besides some common issues with my husband and my age we have no reasons that prevent us from conceiving. We never have been pregnant in the years we have been trying. And I have given up now on the hope of succeeding which is the strangest of feelings…this acceptance that parenthood will not be part of our lives. You were mentioning starting another page about miscarriages in older women.
Grief is hard to handle always, and grief of someone you never met is incomprehensible.
It is ongoing. And for the people around you, helping you thru grief in this instance is really hard. In fact, I am not sure my close ones have realised that I have been grieving. So I guess I am saying besides the pain and struggle of loss itself, the unrelenting cycle of hope and grief, there is also a deep sense of aloness as friends and family do not see the experience as loss.

In a way, and I am saying something really strange, I almost wish I at least experienced a miscarriage to also experience a sense of understanding and validation from the ones around me. This whole journey has made me feel an alien. I suppose I want to name the grief for others who also have struggled similarly. Thank you for this forum! Hi Susie.
Thanks for sharing your experience and your struggles. Please know that I am keeping you in my thoughts, and saluting you for your strength and grace in the face of what I remember was an awful, recurring heartbreak. I came across your article yesterday, probably on a day that I needed it most. Yesterday I made a decision to stop my IVF treatment halfway. And what is the hardest is to come out of it not pregnant but more bruised. It was a hard decision to stop the treatment but maybe it was time for me to accept this.
Accept this and move on gracefully. Maybe a lot of it was also out of fear.
Being an older woman the miscarriage possibility is higher and so are the odds of a Down syndrome baby. Maybe all that together with my past experiences made me stop. So there. It sounds like you are doing your best to take care of yourself, and in my opinion, this is the most important thing. But I get how heavy and heartbreaking the grieving can be.

In any case, please know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and wishing all the very best for you. I too have never posted anything online but your article touched me and I found myself feeling so happy for your outcome of having the very much longed for baby. You expressed your experience so realistically and have given me a glimmer of hope that it can happen and more importantly given me the ability to start to accept the fact that I may not have children and still pull through regardless of the pain.
Like many of the ladies, the part about our bodies being in control really hit home. We seem to take our bodies for granted and convince ourselves we can control them which is contrary to the reality!

After several miscarriages, 2 of them at 5 months, and a recent failed ivf cycle, I had just decided to let go but can not stop reading up on this and happened to come across your article! Although I may not have your good fortune, you have been a balm to the soul from all the clinical articles all telling us what to do or not do which is tough to adhere to! I shall try my best to enjoy life and continue to be as healthy as possible and hope it happens for me too! I got pregnant naturally and delivered at the age of I used a product called pre-seed.
Normal delivery and healthy baby, today she is 7. Thanks, Lori! Actually, we used pre-seed too.
