Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Pregnant at 45 naturally

My DH and I decided to TTC our first together. I was worried about my age and if it was even possible at this point, but no reason not to try. So I went to the gyn/ob and had my Mirena IUD pulled and of course he gave me the are you sure speech with all the possible negatives. I decided that this was going to be done naturally or not at all. I didn't want to do all the medications etc. After 8 months of disappointing BFN's I was on the verge of giving up. So on my 9th cycle I decided to let what happens happen and not worry too much. Well, it ended up being our cycle! It IS possible to get pregnant naturally at the age of 45. Don't get me wrong, I will be worried until we get the ultrasound done and tests to make sure all is well. The ob/gyn made sure to let me know that m/c's are very common at this age. sigh I'm holding on to the fact that I'm thankful to have never had a m/c and my AF cycles have been perfectly normal so I'm hopeful all will be fine.

AF lasted 2 days as normal
cd12 temp spike telling me I ovulated. We DTD on cd10, cd12, cd13
1dpo constipation, bloated, gassy
2dpo bloated, diarrhea, gassy
3dpo Allergies acting up, gums swollen and bleeding, bloated, bad diarrhea still, tired w/headache and heartburn. I was VERY irritable. Everything was getting on my nerves and I broke out on my chin.
5dpo bloated, tender BB's, tired
6dpo backache, bloated, tired, heartburn, irritable, sleep deprived
7dpo same as 6dpo
8dpo same b/c with some nausea
9dpo Had a dream that I had implantation, had temp drop. same symptoms as before
10dpo Had pink spotting off and on, same symptoms
11dpo pink spotting in the morning only when i wipe. Diarrhea again
12dpo same symptoms, positive HPT!
13dpo Had more spotting but light reddish color...made me alittle worried, another positive with Clearblue digi "pregnant". Spotting stopped after the morning.
16 dpo Another positive HPT

Someone made the comment that maybe I have twins b/c of the spotting at two different days. The thought scares me! LOL Anyway.... pregnant naturally at 45 is possible!!

Thank you!  My first appt is Aug 11th and I will post how it goes.  I read this site constantly for hope it could happen so I do want to share it can and offer hope myself!

Unfortunately, this turned into a chemical pregnancy :(  But I'm having hopes I'll get my bfp this cycle God willing.  The positive is that at 45yo... I got pregnant naturally!  It just wasnt the right little bean to move forward.
