    My story
    MickieMouse2000 posted:
    My DH and I have been married since 08. I'm 28 soon to be 29, DH is 39 looking at 40 in a few months. We decided to TTC 11/09. In May of this year I got a BFP, two days later we found out it was a chemical pregnancy. DH was devestated, he really wants a baby with me. He already has a DS from a previous marriage.

    Dear MickieMouse2000,

    I just wanted to pop in and say "Welcome!" I know the other great ladies here will say hello when they get a chance. Being right before the weekend, responses are sometimes a little slow, but this is an amazingly supportive group.

    My condolences on the chemical pregnancy.Have you seen a doctor for help with TTC?

    I hope you and DH get a BFP in the New Year.

    MickieMouse2000 replied to Byroney_WebMD_Staff's response:
    No, we haven't seen a doctor yet. Funds are really limited. DH is an optimist and says it will happen when it happens.

    Welcome, Mickie :) So sorry it's been difficult for you, but luckily we are all in the same boat on this board, so this is a great place to come to!

    What have you tried so far? Do you temp or use OPKs? Are your cycles regular? The more background us girls know, the easier it becomes for us to help each other!

    Best wishes!
