Hi everyone. My very first posting.
I'm 43 , been trying to conceive for 4 or so years, been through 2 miscarriages at 6 & 8 weeks and now feeling a little despondent at the thought of never being called 'Mummy'. I'm overweight which is probably not a great help either.
I've just finished a 3 month shot at Clomid to try and boost things. Even tried laying with the legs up the wall for 30 minutes after sex, to no great effect - getting suffocated by the duvet over my head not a great help either (LOL).
Was given a blood test to get done once during the 3 months which showed clomid was doing it's job OK - it's just my body that isn't. Got another go at 3 months more and then the NHS let me go!
Just composed an e-mail to send to the 4 clinics we are now considering for possible IVF treatment - watch out bank account!

Love 'n Baby wishes

Hi there Carole,
Welcome and best of luck with the clomid. I know the pain mcs bring and it really hurts,let's hope it comes to an end for you shortly(come on clomid!!). There's a newbie thread if you want to "come out" there but you've found the clomid part straight away. The clomid chicks here seem lovely,mad but lovely!!! Good luckXX

Hi Carole, I'm approaching the big 40 myself in a month or so. Had m/c in april 2006, just stopped using Clomid and planning the next step. Like yourself I have tried different positions, not got pregnant yet but my gymnastics have improved :D
I dont know if like me you think time is against you, just have fun trying.
lots of really nice ladies on here willing to give advice and support.
good luck honey xx
