TTC at 46... Odds low, but hopes high! Rss

My birthday is on Friday & I’ll be turning 46. I met my husband when I was 38 & we married a year later. I was told when we first tried to conceive that my Fallopian tubes were pretty damaged & that I should think about having them removed as I was almost 40 then. At a private clinic, they told me things were not nearly as bad as they seemed & I had two IUI neither of which worked & was considering IVF when I fell pregnant naturally with my daughter. I gave birth to her (my beautiful, perfect princess) at age 42. I have been trying to conceive again naturally since she was around 18 months old and have had two early miscarriages & two ‘late periods’ (cycle is usually around 26 days & bleeding started at day 30...) I am still trying & can’t give up hope. I really feel it can still happen, but it’s a lonely journey. Anyone else in this situation?
Hello. Nice to hear about the birth of your daughter. Congratulations. I hope you conceive this time too. ITs good to know that you are prepared for negatives too. This would save you a lot of disappointment. Good luck.
Firstly, congratulations on your daughter! I am sure that must be a miracle. I think it is the fault of the clinics you visited. They overestimated the problem! Or they diagnosed you incorrectly. Therefore, visit a doctor who is experienced and professional. Other than that TTC for a year and if things don't work naturally then consider opting for a treatment. Sending baby dust your way.
Oh honey, that's it! It feels pretty often a lonely journey 'cause it tends to isolate you from normal life. I experienced the same. People around were willing to give their pieces of advice. But what I needed then was just a supportive hug and a word of encouragement. A single word that it will happen sooner or later, but it will!! I wanted to cardially congratulate you with having your 'perfect princess' in life. It's priceless. Unfortunately time never plays on our side with fertility issues. So probably your situation changed a bit. But I'm hoping at least you have IVF to deal with it. As if I got it right you're still healthy enough to carry the baby yourself. Just thought you might want to have a look onto win'win plans with fertility centers. Meaning you sign up for a number of shots and in case you aren't lucky the clinic will refund you money back. I've got some good links if needed. And remember we are all here for you. Take care!
In addition. Generally, IVF may be an option if: Fallopian tube damage or blockage makes it difficult for an egg to be fertilized or for an embryo to travel to the uterus. If ovulation is infrequent or absent, fewer eggs are available for fertilization. Also fibroids are benign tumors in the wall of the uterus and are common in women in their 30s and 40s. Fibroids can interfere with implantation of the fertilized egg. Then below-average sperm concentration, weak movement of sperm (poor mobility). Or abnormalities in sperm size and shape can make it difficult for sperm to fertilize an egg. If semen abnormalities are found, your partner might need to see a specialist to determine if there are correctable problems or underlying health concerns. I believe there must be the reason why it doesn't happen. So I'd recommend to have a good consultation with a reliable repro center/ fertility expert who'll more likely want you to pass some of the additional testings in order to undestand the cause. Only careful evaluation will help you to find the right solution for you. Wishing you the best x

Your daughter must have been your miracle child. I am sure that must have been exciting for you. I believe that if you have been trying for more than 12 months then it is again time to visit the doctor. However, this time make sure the clinic you visit is operating at a high success rate. They should know what they are doing. Since you are in your 40's it is important to fasten up things. Good luck to you. Sending baby dust your way.
