Just looking for some moral support and maybe some more information as I go along. Long story short, in the three years I have been married and trying to have children, I have had an ectopic pregnancy, a surgery for uterine fibroids, a miscarriage, and in April I lost my twin boy and girl at 21 weeks to severe preeclampsia. I conceived the first two pregnancies naturally, and the twins we conceived through IVF. We are set to do a frozen embryo transfer of only one embryo this time in the second week of October, only 6 months from the day I delivered the twins. I am so excited and so scared at the same time, worried that the preeclampsia may be related to the IVF in my case, and yet feel we need to use one of our frozen embryos since we have several and do not want to discard them. They are precious to us! I am also dealing with my age, I will be 40 in November! I thought I would be a joyful mother of twins the day I turned 40, and now I may be in the early stages of a pregnancy that I am just praying will result in a beautiful rainbow baby that could bring some joy into my sorrow. Any moral support, encouragement from anyone, or even any older mothers out there would help so much!
