48 and maybe pregnant

Postby ajsmom07 » Tue Jan 22, 2013 2:46 pm

Hello everyone;

I haven't been here in a while, I was taking a little break. I am currently 16 days late for my period which was supposed to start on January 6th. I have been regular up until this point, typically 28 days. My last period was December 9th. I don't chart my temp or ovulation regularly, but according to my period tracker I possibly o'ed on December 23rd. I have been with my boyfriend for almost 6 years. We bd'd on December 15th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 23rd, 25th and again on the 31st and January 1st (guess we were trying, lol). I am having many symptoms and I took an hpt and got a couple with faint lines, they are the Wal-mart brand. I called my ob/gyn today and was talking to the nurse and she was not nice at all. She told me to wait for a couple more weeks and then call back if nothing, that i'm probably going through menopause. I tried to tell her that in two weeks, I would be due for another period, but she wasn't listening to me. I also told her my mother, aunts, grandmother were all in their 60's when they went through menopause. Again she didn't listen. I don't know if I should go to a clinic and have the blood work done. I called my primary who told me to call the ob/gyn because I guess she doesn't want to order the test. I feel pregnant, and I would be really happy if it's true. I'm just really frustrated!

Thanks for letting me vent!
Jane :?

Go get a FRER or two and test. I got really faint lines on two cheapies and last night broke down and used a FRER at 10 dpo. Today I got darker line on the cheapie and am 11 dpo. I am going on Monday for my blood test which is the day after AF is due. I have it arranged with my primary.

I also say, get a new Primary and possibly a new OB/Gyn, or at least tell her how the nurse behaved. Unbelievable.

Thanks so much for the support! My boyfriend is going to get me some spotting since he gets paid on Thursday. I am going to call my sister's doctor tomorrow and see if I can get in at least for some blood work.

Thanks again and i'll keep you posted!

Gosh I just hate the way some healthcare workers give an older mum an attitude when it comes to advanced maternal age pregnancy! Makes me very angry and sorry for you that you have to go through this! If you were 30 you would have been offered a blood test by now!

I agree. Poas (frer) and go to different doc! Good luck and kup!

Thank you so much! I think they just don't think before they speak. Not only that but with son, I was almost 4 months along before I found out I was pregnant.

Just an update, my bf picked up a dollar store hpt but when I opened the package this morning it was an opk even though the box said hpt. I took it any way and this is what I got:

I missed my period that was supposed to come on January 6th and my February one would be due on the 3rd, so I highly doubt this is ovulation.

Thanks!

Hi Apples, got a faint positives yesterday and today. I did take pictures but I can't get the to upload from my phone and I don't have a computer at home so i'll post them tomorrow from work. Still having tons of symptoms especially in my hips like they are widening. I am calling my doctor again tomorrow and I going to beg them to order a blood test.

Eeek! Yay for faint positives! I agree bombard the doc with phone calls until they see you and give you the test! I mean, my goodness, you pay your insurance and expect to be able to use the services! Good luck and keep peeing!

Very true! I think because of my age, the nurse didn't take me seriously so maybe if I talk to someone else in the office, i'll get the blood test done.. I'll keep you posted..

I would have made a polite fuss if I had been treated like that. You get that blood test and make sure they don't blow you off this time. They work for you when you are paying for services. I think the OPK looks so promising, as the luteinizing hormone and HCG are extremely similar.
Can't wait for an update!
