    Dionne,
    Sorry to hear you are not having luck in the baby dept. Did you have problems with your first?
    I started by just going to my obgyn office and making an appointment with the MD there that works with infertility patients. He has been great, I go for my first IUI next week but it's a pretty long process. They will probably start by testing your husbands sperm since you are in your 40s and just rule that out before anything else.
    I don't have any reproductive endo's in my area or I probably would have gone there. You typically don't need a referral to make an appointment with an RE so you might want to google if there are any close by- I will say there ends up being a lot of appointments so hopefully they aren't more than 30 minutes one way.
    Good luck! Jessica
