Hello (loss mentioned) — The Bump
TTC after 35

Hello (loss mentioned)

I am 38 my DH is 40. We have been together for 20 years and married for 15 tomorrow. We have 4 fur babies 2 cats and 2 dogs. So I never thought I would have gotten this far. I was diagnosed with PCOS at age 15 and told I was probably not going to be able to have children and I accepted that. It is in the family I have an aunt, great aunt, and great great aunt that were childless. I figured I was the one in this generation. In august I was just not feeling right... the breast pain was incredible.  I feared cancer but thought I would investigate and rule out pregnancy. I peed on that little stick and when I saw that plus sign I nearly fainted and really wanted to throw up. At 37 almost 38 it was so surreal.  I told my husband and he was excited. It was 9 years of unprotected sex.

To shorten my tale I lost the pregnancy at 11w5d. I was devestated and didn't realised how much I wanted this.

I am supposed to be waiting for my first AF but it took 9 years the first time. And my mc was complete. The Dr said it was for dating purposes so I am not concerned, this was the first Dr out of 4 to tell me that I was fertile and a healthy pregnancy is possible. So I will be going back to her.

Re: Hello (loss mentioned)

  • Welcome and I am so very sorry for your loss.

    Many women on these boards ( especially the TTTC board) have PCOS and many have gone on to have very sucesfull pregnancies.  Seeing a good RE who frequently deals with PCOS is the way to go!  They know how to treat it and help you achieve a pregnancy. 

    Good luck!

    My advice is that you follow your doctors orderes. If they said to wait till AF to start trying again please do so.
    You know you can get pregnant so that is a big positive.
    Good luck

  • so sorry for your loss
  • I say congrats on getting pregnant, even though you lost it thta is a great step in pcos, means tha you can.

    I was diagnosed last year with pcos, since the RE didn't make a big deal out of it I kinda ignored it, now I iunderstand so much more.

    Funny I was told I wouldn't be able to have kids because I have a retrotilted uterus when I was a teenager, DR since have told me that is not true.

    So I wish you luck!!
