I'm 45 and almost 12 weeks pregnant. It was a total shock since I thought i was going thru premenapause. So far all is well and baby is doing good. I've had 3 previous m/c's, so this is my first to make it this far. I pray it continues. My next hurdle will be genetic testing. I think I'll be doing the MateriT21 test since it's not invasive. I also have the hurdle of telling the father.(another post for another day) I was waiting til I got into second trimester bc the mc rate is so high for my age. I honestly never thought I'd make it this far. Hi to everyone.
Congrates! I am almost five weeks and after trying for 5 yrs, this is so exciting! I have been though many failed iui's and one failed IVF. This is natural with a blood thinner to help immune system. I have thyroid issues and started a new med that helped me conceive this cycle. Keep me posted on your journey!
Oh my goodness, I forgot I posted this. Thanks so much for your reply and congrats to you as well. I don't know if you check this section or not, but sorry i didn't respond earlier. I had a beautiful baby girl May 17, 2013. She was 5 weeks early, but healthy enough to go right to the room with me and then home. Weird being a FTM at 46 (now 47) but the best and most amazing thing that's ever happened in my life. I'm only sad I can't have another. I just know if I had been able to get pregnant in my late 20's or early 30's, I would have had a house full!!
Checked around and found your profile and saw your amazing little man. He is so cute you must be one proud momma!!
