I'm nearly 42. One DS, nearly 4, 2 miscarriages.
Just been to the Bridge Clinic for first round of tests, due for follow up appt for the results.
If he says there is no hope what the hell am I going to do?
I am just dreading it.

Donteven know what I'm asking. I guess does anyone have any experience or advice on hearing bad news?
Do I prepare myself for the worst?

Hi, don't think I can help much but just to say I definitely don't think yr fertile days are over. I have just fallen PG without trying & I'm 42. I feel a bit guilty as I know so many on these threads try for months but I do tend to fall quickly.

Please don't give up hope smile

If Bridge say that you're now into the territory of donor eggs etc get a second opinion from The Lister and ARGC. They treat a higher volume of women overall, including a Hugh proportion of women in your age group. Bridge are a bit conservative and keen to move to donors faster than other places so it's well worth considering other clinics.

Leaky, good for you.

excellent leaky, that's fab!
It's really strange because I really don't feel old, I don't feel like anything is different regarding my fertility, and I still have enough energy and love for lots of babies! And then I remember I'm nearly 42.

thanks Bagoholly, that's good to know. I really don't know how I feel about donor eggs. I guess I haven't thought that far ahead.

I know that both of us will feel blame, me if it's my eggs, DH if it's his sperm.
I think that will be awful
