Talking IS IT HIM OR IS IT ME?

I AM AN ADVANCED MATERNAL AGE MOTHER OF 3 TEENS AGES 18-13-13 (YES TWINS). I GOT MARRIED YEARS AGO TO A MAN WITHOUT CHILDREN. WE TRIED AND TRIED UNTIL LAST AUG I FOUND THAT I WAS PREGNANT. AT FIST I WAS SURPRISED SINCE THE LAST PREGNANCY I USED CLOMID AND NEVER GOT PREGNANT AGAIN. THE IDEA GREW ON ME WE WERE HAPPY UNTIL THAT DREADED DAY IN SEPTEMBER WHEN WE WENT TO SEE THE HEARTBEAT AGAIN ONLY TO SEE NOTHING. THE NEXT DAY I HAD A D&C. AFTER TESTING THE POC THEY FOUND THAT IT WAS A GIRL WITH AN EXTRA CHROMOSOME. THE DOC ASSURED THAT THERE WAS NOTHING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. AFTER SERVERAL TEST WE GET TH OK TO TRY STARTING DEC WITH THE HELP OF CLOMID HE SUGGESTED CD 3-7. IT WAS THE MOST PAINFUL THING I EXPERIENCED ONLY TO END UP WITH A PERIOD JAN 11. I HAD ONE MORE REFILL ON THE CLOMID. EVERYTHING THE DOC SAID TO DO I DID MY WAY. I TOOK CLOMID CD 5-9 WITH LESS PAIN. HAD SEX MORE RANDOMLY. VALENTINES DAY I WAS ABLE TO GIVE MY HUSBAND A RED BOX WITH BABY BOOTIES INSIDE W/ THE PREGNANCY TEST. I HOPE THIS WORKS OUT THIS IS HIS LAST CHANCE.

Welcome to TBC.
 


I'm sorry for your loss. I've had several losses with trisomies so I know the devastation.
 
However, trisomies are generally very random occurences that almost never recur in one family. (We had some testing done to figure out that we have a sperm quality issue that has contributed to our repeated trisomies.)

On the other hand, congratulations on your new pregnancy! I'll keep my
 
that this is a healthy baby and you're welcoming a new member to your family next fall!

I know how rotten it is to lose something you want so dearly...

I hope this little one sticks tight!! I am 13 years older than my little sister -- she was one of the best gifts in my life. Your twins will be very lucky!!
