I have been working extra shifts including nights to meet the minimum income threshold so that my husband can join me to live and work in the uk and I have just had an early miscarriage at 6 weeks. I'm 43 have 4 children from a previous relationship had no problems conceiving ( first month of trying) I'm so upset and have to keep working the extra shifts.

Based on your age and the fact that you have had several successful pregnancies, this miscarriage is not about your work. If anything I'd say it has more to do with your age.

My eldest sister didn't have any issues having children, until 2 years ago. She lost 2 in a row at 40. She had 4 pregnancies prior to that, without any issues. Age is a huge factor. I would also like to note that since then she has had 2 more children.

For right now, focus on getting your husband over to the UK. After, that revisit trying for a baby. You will need to take is easy, it wont be as easy as your earlier pregnancies, but it is possible.

Hi Brittany thank you for your reply. I'm doing my best to stay focused to get my husband here and have gone straight back to work. I only hope that by the time he can be here its not too late ie regarding my age. Thank you for the encouragement by sharing your sisters experience.
