BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Hope After 40

I write this story to give others hope. If I can get pregnant, naturally, then anyone can:) I'm 40 (and a half) and my bf is 45. We both have kids from previous marriages, but, after carefully weighing the risks & fully understanding the odds, we decided to try for a baby. After all, the worst thing that might happen is nothing! Even so, my doc said my chances were slim without meds, due to my age. But I am an eternal optimist! So, in January, 12 years after the initial vasectomy, my wonderful bf had a vasectomy reversal. The doc told us it would be 3 months before viable sperm were present. I tried not to obsess, but I was hopeful each month....Sure enough, on the third month after the procedure, I got a positive! I know it's early days yet, I'm only 5wks 3 days, but I remain hopeful. I try to temper my worry over MC w the joy & promise of our baby:) Ladies, I offer this story to give hope to those of us a bit older, a bit sad, a bit weary of this process. There are sometimes not enough joyous stories out there for older women TTC. I submit my story to encourage hope and inspire us to have faith in our bodies and celebrate the love we all have to offer our babies! The only symptoms I can share are, unfortunately, *exactly* the same as PMS: sore boobs, irritability & fatigue. Mommies-To-Be, have heart! If it's possibLe for a aging, older gal like me, it's possible for you! Xoxo

Alison"]. I want to testify to everyone on how my husband and i got children after our 5years of marriage. we got married and we could not conceive a child we have been to several hospitals for checking and the doctors always say that we are okay that nothing is wrong with us, we have been hoping for a child, my husband was beginning to keep late night outside and pressure from the family for him to marry another wife and divorce me, i was always crying and weeping because i was loosing my marriage. so i visited my friend in Florida and she told me that she also have been through this same situation but she got her help of getting her own child from a great priest of fertility from Africa, so she told me that she will contact me to the priest and he will do some fertility spell for me to have my own child, i spent 4days with her in Florida and we both email the priest and he said i should bring all my information to him and he said in 2days after the spell will be completed. so i waited and i went back made love with my husband and i conceive. so i am very greatful to the priest for his help and miracle that help me save my marriage. please for same help, conatct him on fertilitytemple@yahoo.com
