I'm 36 years old and my wife is 38. We had been trying to get pregnant for 5 years. We found out in January she was pregnant, and had a sonogram at 8 weeks which showed a heartbeat and everything was looking great. We go in Thursday for the 12 week ultrasound and there was no heartbeat. We are shocked and devestaed. Words can't really describe. They will do a D&C on Tuesday if she doesn't have a miscarriage on her own. My wife is feeling that we are doomed in regards to having a child. She feels like she is already too old and this was her only chance. I have fertility issues, and we had to use a donor, but it didn't bother me and we both knew that was my baby. My wife got pregnant after 3 months of IUI and being on clomid, so I consider us lucky that is capabile of having a child. She is just convinced that we waited too long and she is too old. I have no idea how we'll handle the first 12 weeks the next time she is pregnant. I pray she does get pregnant again, but I'm scared. Scared for her, scared for us. She is having such a hard time this weekend knowing our baby is still inside her, "dead". I'm sorry if I'm rambling, but I haven't slept for 3 days. I just don't know what to do.
