Last week I suffered a miscarriage at 10 weeks. I have a DS who is 2 and a half. I haven't yet cried over our loss. I am a nurse so maybe my profession has helped me come to terms with it?? I'm just not sure.... It's been a week and I am going back to work tomorrow as the physical element has now stopped.

I am now in a debate whether to try again?? I am 38 and don't think I could go through another miscarriage.... My DH is amazing and he feels we should try but he will go with whatever I decide as I'm the one that has to go through it physically. Am I right to put a stop to it??

Firstly sorry for your loss.
I had ds at 37 and another at 43. I would say you had plenty of time for another try.

Thanks Santawontbelong. Maybe I need to give it some time.... just don't know what to do

I had a mc very young and it was bloody awful. I had one at 45 and it was totally different. Accepted it was a part of the brutality of ttc, pregnancy, childbirth as a whole. All the harsh realities you don't realise as a youngster! Accepting ttc over a certain age is more challenging is the way to move forward but not necessarily a reason to not.

I met my DH late in life and I had come to the fact that I would probably never have children and then I met him.... he changed my life... he loved me unconditionally (I have had issues with my weight all my life).... we had a whirlwind and married nearly 4yrs ago. Our DS is 2.5yrs and he is a little star and brings soooo much joy to our lives. If the m/c had not happened then it would have been due a few days after DS 3rd birthday. So I have booked a holiday away to occupy my mind
