Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
How is this possible even???
My name is Ava, the photo on my profile is a childhood photo of mine and I am ....49 years old.
A mother of two grown up sons and a grandmother of a lovely baby girl.
I have had 4 pregnancies of which the last two were aborted by me, all in my 20s and since then no pregnancy, no attempt, no treatment, nothing.. But there was some little hidden voice inside of em always telling me that I want it again..I never acted upon this voice..I just let go life take its course..
And it did..And nothing was happening, nothing at all..
At age 38, I was told by a gynecologist that I have had a scar on my uterus which has completely healed. I did not make a big notice of it..
At age 44, I was told by another gynecologist that I had fibroid and my fertility days are over. I did not make a big notice of this, either.
I never had any treatment or any chance of getting pregnant because my partners either had a vasectomy or were not with me long enough or having any serious feelings for me, I suppose, to make me a baby, or at least to try...
This September, after being with a man older than me with a decade, I got pregnant. Accidentally. Completely accidentally.
Initially, having the symptoms attributed to pregnancy: missing period, cramps-like ovaries pain, breasts tenderness, change in eating pattern did not tell me anything except that I am perimenopausal and yes, this is how it is...Later however, I started having gags and again did not think it was pregnancy, gagging happens in so many other instances..
Fast forward 5 weeks, I got the pregnancy test ( have not touched one for 24 years), did the first urine thing and it came out positive.
Was I in shock? No. I always knew somewhere deep inside that I could get pregnant again some day.
It just took 24 years to happen again and in a time of my life when I least expected it. Least.
Next week, I will redo the test and I will think about this again then and there. Because if I am pregnant to stay, at my age, there are many important decisions to be made.
But this is true for any age in which a woman gets pregnant.
