45 and just had BFP!

Postby Neeve » Fri Aug 26, 2011 6:20 am

Hi All,
I'm back again after a little break. I had had my 3rd M/C in March and kinda gave up trying. We are moving house and the movers just loaded everything on Wednesday and only when I sat down and had time to think I realized my period was 1 week late. I assumed menopause delay but took a test...BFP :bfp: !
I am reserving excitement for a while due to my last three M/C's and my age..but we'll see! It is an achievement even to get to this point and I'm pleased! :D

Congrats! I had a MC before the baby I just had (she is 7 weeks today). I know the feeling of trying not to get to excited. Here's hoping this one sticks!

Thanks all you guys...you make my day!
Feeling morning sickness at night and sore BBs, other than that just some growing cramps!
I'm about almost 8 weeks and haven't booked an OBGYN, as just moved to town (and secretly a bit chicken to get a scan as afraid what I will find!). I will keep you updated!
At least I am hoping I can give some 40+ ladies some faith that something may happen at anytime...so don't give up hope!
:D
