mbbinsc - at the MI comment about your DH!

Happy Tuesday ladies! Kevin woke up with a : in the middle of the night last night. Conveniently, DH has the day off so he is able to stay with DS today.

Thanks to all of you for your support.I am miscarrying this babe.So sad I held out hope until u/s....
The up side of this is that the staff was amazing-attentive,professional ,caring and most of all OPTOMISTIC and encouraging of my ttc again .I have no problem conceiving -all five of my sister's conceived in late 30-mid 40's.My mom had 16 pregnancies -10 healthy children after she was told that w/ less than 1 working ovary in her 20's. She had her last child at 43 at which point she decided ten little indian's was enough !!!I didn't even share this hx. w/ Dr. until she said on my inquiry @ age etc...there is no reason you shouldn't try as soon as you feel your body is ready-I would try again if I were you.
It was so refreshing to not have medical professionals -these women at this practice know little @ me ..I am a new patient at the practice...not make an issue of my age for any reason..
Now just waiting for hcg & progesterone levels...I will now continue honoring this loss.

Hopefully my experience /story can prove helpful to someone else.

Thanks Again.

I want to thank you all so much for your support.It's been a painful and busy week.
Dd started attending a different preschool this past Mon.It's a Montessori School -she's
appears to be adjusting and allready flourishing in new environment.


I love her so much and I realise that I am blessed to have her.She really wants a sibling and it is difficult for me to handle I may not be able to provide her one...

With this last pregnancy I was talking to my babe to be & massaging my womb every night in bed....So painful to have felt pregnant & ripe w/ life to viceral difference of no longer carrying life...

I hope others will continue to share /broach other topics...I think this group is awesome !

Being, I am so sorry for your loss.

My DS prayed for 2 years for a little sister. We were walking to school one day, when he patted my belly and said that there was a baby in there. I told him mommy was too old (I was 43) only to realize a couple months later that he was right! We have come to realize he is a very intuitive kid.

Quick Question if you are TTC

Hello Mamas -

(x-posted in TTC over 40 thread)I

I know a lot of you are currently TTC on this thread and am wondering what your opinions are on taking 5-HTP or SSRI's while TTC? I know when I was pregnant at the beginning of this yr. I was taking Prozac - it ended it m/c. But then when I m/c in Sept. I wasn't taking anything. So I'm thinking is it better to be medicated or non-medicated and under stress Oh, this is so frustrating because I'll be 44 in Jan. and feel like my fertility years are 7 more at most since my mom went through meno at 50. Any advice mamas

lovbeingamommy-
I was on prozac @ 5 years ago when ttc dd. I was advised by psychiatrist to minimize use of SSRI's particularly prozac at least during first trimester when organs are forming etc...Prozac has been reportedly linked w/ heart defects I guess more associated w/ 1 trimester use my depression heightened @ 3rd trimester when I resumed taking it w/ medical recommendation w/ hx. of Major Deppression and w/ hopes of thwarting PPD etc..Lower risk was acceptable/warrented vs. having my physiology & psychological capacity compromised ...which could have been worse outcome for babe.

Medication use during pregnancy is a hot button issue to be sure...

There are many other modalities others may use w/ benefit -just telling my experience..


With many meds. and indiv. circumstances level of risk & how they are weighed etc.. will vary .

Not trying to be vague -not wanting to provoke either ...

Web sites worth purusing w/ Dr. or solo =www.motherrisk.org ,www.Medscape.com
Sorry I can't give direct links right now...If you have trouble accessing sites let me know...Also Kellymom I believe has some data prob relevent.

Feel free to pm w/ specifics..? .I'll continue to post sources when I can

Ive come to that conclusion too! I really was thinking we were done after this last one. But as they all get older im thinking, maybe when the little guy is about three. I had three in three years plus two months. Thats close.
