Intro *TW* child and loss — The Bump
TTC after 35

Intro *TW* child and loss

Hi all.  I've been reading posts for awhile, but since DH and I have decided to start TTC #2, thought I should join in.  I'm 39 (40 in 2 months) and DH is 45.  I had my Mirena removed a month ago, so this will be the 1st cycle to start actively TTC.   I was 36 the last time we TTC, and got pregnant on 2nd cycle, but had a natural mc at 7 wks.  Was able to conceive DS 2nd cycle after mc shortly after I turned 37.  DS recently turned 2 and with my 40th approaching have decided that timing is right.  Hoping that TTC goes like the past, but we are both a few years older and due to pregnancy, breastfeeding and iud, I haven't had a cycle in 3 years, so I'm starting all over again.  Hope my stay is short, but will be glad to get to know everyone.  Best of luck to everyone.

    Welcome @wvrn1216! I wish you the best! We are in very similar situations, 2-year old in the pic, bf, conceived on cycle 2 before but now a few years have passed so it's different now, etc., except you're a couple of years younger than I am, so take heart in that, lol! I haven't been on here too long but it's great to have the support of other AMAers.
