New here-first post

I guess I just need some support and encouragement. I had a mc in March 2013. We have been ttc since June and every month I break down in tears when I get my period. The dr said to come in after 6 mos of trying if I'm not pregnant and that's this month. Just got my period again. I feel like it's never going to happen. I turned 40 in the midst of all of this and I'm so scared that I'm too old,that my time is up. We just want one child,we aren't even asking for more,and I just feel like a failure. I don't understand why I can't get pregnant again after the mc. I'm just so sad I don't know what to do.

Hi and welcome!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I understand the intense disappointment of getting AF month after month since it took us 2.5 years to get pg the first time. I also know that nothing I say will lessen your heartache, but I can offer my sympathy and understanding. I am not going to say that your age isn't a barrier, as we all know that it can be. It can also be overcome. Sometime getting pg just takes a while, even when everything is perfect. It doesn't seem fair, I know and sometimes the deck seems stacked against you. But the good news is that you know you can get pg and it seems that your doc is taking you seriously. Talk to your doc and see what your options are. And come here when you need to vent, cry, whine and celebrate. There are a lot of really wonderful ladies here and many in similar circumstances who can offer support and understanding.

I'm sorry that you are having such a tough time Sad

I also miscarried early this year, in January. I was very scared that it would take a long, long time after that for us to fall pregnant that I immediately started using ovulation prediction tests. We were blessed to fall pregnant in the 2nd cycle (first normal one) after the m/c.

Have you tried using OPK's?
