Trying to conceive

Yet again I find myself back in TTC. After a mc at 5 weeks back in August of 2012, I discovered I was pregnant again on 30th October and was over the moon! I had an early 'reassurance' scan mid November that showed a tiny little bean with a strong heartbeat and after the upset of the mc in August I was relieved to say the least.
I had almost every pg symptom possible and they made me feel safe. I finally stopped feeling sick about a week before my 12 week scan and just thought it was coming up to the end of the 1st trimester, how wrong. On the morning of our scan, hubby & I were so excited but the minute she found the baby on the monitor I knew it didn't look how it should and my fears were confirmed when she said 'I'm so sorry'. Our baby had died the week before my scan and other than the lack of nausea, I'd had no other symptoms.
I opted for an erpc as it was so close to Christmas and we really wanted to keep it normal for our 5 year old so I went in for the procedure 5 days later.
And here I am although I'm undecided as to whether I can cope with the upset of ttc again. I'm almost 40 now and maybe I'm just too old? My hubby wants to try one more time so perhaps we will although that will really have to be it.
So, I have to wait for a normal af to come and go before we can actively try but I will keep my eye on here and watch out for everyones news and anxiously await the moment I can post my bfp again! xxx

I am so so so sorry to hear this - my heart really fell when I saw that you had posted back on here. Nothing I can say can make you feel better but thinking of you and fingers crossed for a sticky bean.

Thanks ladies, your words are really kind and I'm very greatful.
We've decided to try one more time and if that doesn't work then we'll call it a day and jsut be a family of three.
So, right now I'm awaiting the arrival of a normal af so we can start ttc again!
Good luck to everyone. xxxx
