back much sooner than I had hoped (re-introduction: ****TW recent late term loss****

edited April 2017 in Trouble TTC
hello ... My name is Cyndie I am 35 years old... I was here awhile back however I don't know how many here remember me. DH & I spent many years NTNP and finally got serious about TTC April 2016....

we got our BFP 01/01/2017  and were so excited... unfortunately at our Anatomy Scan last week we found my cervix had opened 3 cm and and after performing an amnio found an infection had set in the amniotic fluid.... due to the infection my high risk OB would not place a cerclage. My options were to either induce (we were 19 weeks 1 day along) knowing my son would not make it, or let it go knowing it would happen on it's own eventually however he advised the infection was severe and doing this would most likely lead to me losing my uterus. We induced that night, the most painful experience mentally, emotionally and physically I have ever been through. Our son Alexander was born, we spent some time with him and we will be having him cremated 

DH immediately said he wanted to try again as soon as it is safe for me to physically... this all just happened 04/13 so of course we aren't actively trying yet (probably won't be cleared for sex for a few more weeks) but i'm trying to do as much as i can to preplan now. 

when we got our BFP we had actually been taking a break from TTC- we had done an HSG 3 months prior and were planning on starting IUI's with injectables, 

I plan on going back to the same RE i was seeing because I loved her, asking her to repeat the HSG to make sure nothing during all this has damaged my tubes and then moving forward with the IUIs w/ injectables .... I do worry about my age... i'm 35 and will be 36 in November but i'm hoping we can be successful again and this time carry to term

  • I'm so incredibly sorry that you find yourself back here again and for your loss. I wish I had words to lessen the pain you are feeling right now. I'm the same age as you and when I start to panic about my age I keep reminding myself there are plenty of women older than me that have crossed the finish line successfully. Try not to worry too much about it and just focus on next steps (I know easier said than done).
