This is my first post. I feel the need to connect with women going through what I am. Unbelievable! I am 38 years old. It took me forever to find the right guy. We got married this past December and both of us want children badly. Deep down, I aways knew that I would have fertility issues - don't ask me how. We started trying to get pregnant just before the wedding. Poof! Pregnant on the 2nd try. A missed abortion right after the wedding. Went in for 10.5 wk u/s and no heartbeat. Baby stopped developing at 6 wks. After 2 months of being depressed, sad, and hopeless. Poof! Pregnant again. Happy but scared now. Go in for u/s at 8.4 wks. The SAME news! Baby stopped developing at 6 wks. Doctor says it's bad luck but she suggests trying IVF. I can't help but feel like I am on a long journey. This is straining my new marriage and making me feel sad, scared, and hopeless. I KNOW that many other women go through this. How do I stay strong and hopeful? Help.
