BFP at 40 yrs. Natural

Postby BunnyV » Sun Apr 08, 2018 9:18 pm

It can happen at 40. I was tired and felt like a bloated slug and decided to take a test at cycle day 28 of a normal 30 day cycle. Not sure which day exactly ovulation. Within minutes all 4 tests showed positive. Just living life but still taking pre natal vitamins & folic acid. DH is 6 years younger. TTC off and on for 2 years. And then one day, bam!

Thank you for the replies. Unfortunately this ended in a miscarriage at 4.5 weeks. Doctor comfirmed via Ultrasound & blood test. Heavy Bleeding started 3 and 4 days after the four positive HPTs. Okay to try again in 6 weeks.

Really sorry to hear this, they do say you're more fertile and less likely to miscarry for 6 months after a miscarriage.
I hope this is true - I'm 38 and had my last miscarriage about 6/7 weeks ago at 5 weeks.
Good luck for next time and keep us updated.
