Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

45 and gave birth to a healthy baby boy

I was 44 when I was checking this "BFP over 40" board obsessively. I thought I would definitely write my story to share with others and also give others hope if I became pregnant. My daughter was 9 years old from a previous relationship and my love of life was 32 years old, 12 years younger than me with no child. He never told his parents how old I was, just implied that "we were in the same age range", so his big family won't refuse me. He wanted to have a son someday and I promised him in my heart that I would fulfill his dream. I then told my doctor that I was planning to have a baby, she reacted as normal as it could be, gave me all the advice and never mentioned anything about my age. She did suggested me to do a full fertility test and referred me to a local fertility center, said my last pregnancy was nearly 10 years ago, it would be good to have an update. It was the fertility center that told me that I was too old, my chance of getting pregnant naturally was less than 1%, etc...etc... I just ignored them, all I needed was the blood test results that my doctor asking for. The blood test results came back and showed that my fertility level was the same as someone in the early thirties. My confidence level went sky high! Sure enough, I was pregnant 3 months later naturally, and it was a boy! I was too excited, too busy planning for the new baby, totally forgot about writing a story on TwoWeek Wait. The pregnancy was happy, smooth and healthy, his big family threw a big baby shower for me. His parents were thrilled that their only son was having a son. I gave birth naturally at 45 to a healthy baby boy at full term. He was the most beautiful and amazing thing I have ever seen. :) My doctor finally admitted that I was the oldest mom in her practice who conceived naturally. Oh, now everyone has been asking me about baby #2, I'm 46 already! Not trying this time, too busy with my baby boy. Just let nature take its course.
