TTC after 35

Right team I'm back in it. TTC#3 CD1

So some of you will know the saga of my miscarriage that resulted in heammorhaging badly. Which left me scared to have more babies, and my Dr wanting my body to rest at least 3 months anyway.

That was followed by a litany of health concerns that saw me seeing a neurologist and getting an MRI scan, plus some ongoing health problems like a blocked ear that is clearing up agonisingly slowly, and I was waiting to see if Dr was going to get me to get a CT scan.

So I went to see my Dr this week about my ear, and my twitchy muscles and just basically to be soothed. He's happy that the twitchy muscles are meaningless. He doesn't want to expose me to radiation unnecessarily with a CT scan and that he doesn't want me to wait to TTC his exact words were, "you need to just get on with life."

I mentioned about losing weight, and that I was trying to get as healthy as possible in light of the traumatic miscarriage and really wanting to avoid that is possible. He agreed that losing weight was a good thing, but that I should aim to be healthy and not delay TTC.

I'm reasonably convinced that all of my health issues are the result of the stress and anxiety caused by the nature of my miscarriage. So I'm doing my best to alleviate anxiety as it arised. But really I think if I delay TTC any longer I might never do it.

So today is CD1. I'm feeling a bit nervous and wobbly about it, but mostly because I'm a terrible, "what if..." kind of a person, but also excited.

best wishes to you ladies. I have kept checking in on you all!

    Welcome back!  
    me:41   dh:43 
    Off Mirena Nov 2013, On Nuvaring end of Jan, Back off Sept 2014.  Never ending cycle starting end of Sept... 
    11/14 Provera failed... cycle continues 
    12/14 High FSH (57 "midcycle")  OBGYN had no clue... about anything 
    01/15 More lab results coming back from RE. U/S showed small (1")cyst on left ovary, thin lining, and couldn't locate right ovary so  possibly straight to DE and IVF 

    Occassionally mess with the chart below to see "what if" and learn (not to make it pretty but because FF stays drunk with me).

    I have seen some of your posts and know you have been through a lot.  I am so sorry you are having to go through this.  Have you possibly thought about speaking with a therapist regarding your MC?  It was a very traumatic event for you and talking to someone may help you work through it. (If therapy is something you believe in)  

    Welcome back though!!!

    Welcome back! I am so sorry for all you've been through and the fear is normal I would think. 

    Good luck!
    I am not sure how to say this without getting a "solicitation" warning so I guess I just say that I am not longer active on THIS site.

    I'm happy you are cleared to ttc again. It's been a rough few months for you and I can't imagine what you are going through but I'm glad you are grabbing the reins again.
    Good luck.
