BFP in shock

I will turn 44 tomorrow, today I got a BFP. I am in complete shock. Melissa turned 1 year exactly a month ago. I called to schedule an appointment and begin the meds given my age and heath history of recurrent miscarriages and MTHFR I have a long road ahead of me. I am hopeful and pray that it all works out but a little part of me just can't get excited. Wish me luck.

I too understand that feeling.  I always refer to it as being cautiously optimistic.  Congratulations to you, and wishing you a healthy and happy 9 months.  Don't forget to keep us updated!

Congratulations!  You might want to ask your doc about progrestersone.  It's protocol here for older women to take suppositories for the first 12 weeks.

Congrats on your Pregnancy. WOO HOO.
I just wanted to add that I also have 2 mutations of MTHFR c677t & Also PAI-1  I had gone to a Perintolgist who advised me STRONGLY not to take lovenox for this situation.  I stopped it at 10 weeks because I had been on it already.  I am about to deliver my twins on friday 10/28.  Good Luck to you!!

Hi Ladies,
Thank you!
I went to the RE yesterday for bw beta is 30,167 and progesterone 17, they like the progesterone to be at 25 so I am on the shots. I am also taking baby aspirin and rx folic acid. I go tomorrow morning for us and hopefully see a heart beat. Praying for a good outcome.

Hi Ladies,

We had our appointment this morning with the RE. US showed a stong heartbeat and I am measuring 7.4 weeks prengnat CRL is 13.5mm. I know this is only the beginning but seeing that heartbeat takes some of the stress away. I am still getting my shot of progesterone every morning and all of the other meds. Next appointment will be nest Tuesday 11/8/2011.
