I took a bit of a mental health break from the boards, but now that I am finding myself lurking more and more, I thought I should reintroduce myself :-)

My name is Erika. DH and I are both 39 and have been married 2.5 years. We started trying in late 2014 and recently experienced our 4th loss (BO). I won't go into great detail but here's the nutshell:
~ Natural MC (BO) Jan 2014 @7wks
~ MMC March 2015 discovered @12wk us after normal us w/heartbeat @6wks. Sac measured 10wks. Opted for D&C.
~ Full blood panel performed after second loss. All normal but heterozygous for MTHFR. No special recommendations from regular OB.
~ Natural MC August 2015 @9wks. Normal us w/heartbeat @6 wks, no heartbeat at 8.5wk us.
~ Requested (and received) referral to MFM after third loss. Placed on Folgard and low-dose aspirin and given 200ml progesterone suppositories to start after next BFP.
~ Natural MC (BO) April 2016 @5wks.

Currently somewhere around CD 15. To be honest, I have cut down tremendously on my pre-conception routine, and only peed on a small handful of ovulation sticks this month. I've made peace with the fact that I will be pregnant again, I know what I need to do when it happens, and no amount of obsessing is going to change the outcome. In the meantime, I guess all any of us can do is take it a day at a time and try not to punch anyone in the throat : )

Edit: I apparently have no idea how old I am, or I'm just blocking it out, but I originally wrote 38 and I'm definitely 39. Oy vey.
