"In 2005, there were more than 104,000 births in the United States to women ages 40 through 44, and over 6,500 to women 45 and older. In 2004, there were 1,786 live births to women over 42, using donor eggs." My goal is to simply share stories I find online, for inspiration - to those trying - and comfort to those who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant!
Miscarriage stories of loss, hope & help. It's always devastating to experience a loss. It can cause you to feel alone, isolated. There's no 'right' way to feel - a range of reactions are possible & normal. In addition to the grief you may feel, your body will be undergoing some profound hormonal adjustments, which may make you feel very emotionally volatile. If you have had a miscarriage, take the time to understand better why these occur & why it is not your fault.
At least 90% of the stories pre-date the Donor Egg era of 1990, or were a complete surprise to the over 44 year old mom-to-be. How can it be so rare, so impossible, such a miracle - when I can find so many???
My goal is to simply share stories I find online, for inspiration - to those trying - and comfort to those who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant! Sort of a "chicken soup for the TTC over 44y soul". Your stories & feedback are welcome!
