Good morning! I am 36 and have an 8 year old son. My husband is 38 and we have been married for 12 years. I had a mc approximately 4 years before having him, and my husband and I were surprisingly pregnant in May. I had a mc in may at approximately 9 weeks. After the mc I am trying to ready my body as much as I can to be a happy place for a baby because now we are trying! I am overweight, but we have been going to the gym about 5 times a week, a little less during the holidays, I have quit drinking, switched to decaf, take prenatal vitamins, and am trying to eat healthier. We are still not pregnant. I know being older presents more problems, but I'm wondering if there is anything else I can do before going to a specialist. Thank you for your time and knowledge.View Thread
