My last AF started on 14th Sep so obviously it's early days.....VERY early. The cycle prior to this one I had started on a supplement called Premular and the DHEA and I had also gotten into my aerobics dvds again. I had all but given up on ttc and had made a gp appointment to get a referral to a specialist to see about getting my right leg varicose veins treated prior to our Summer commencing (my right leg is really bad and only surgery will fix it), had been browsing gorgeous swimsuits online and doing aerobics after DH buying me a good pair of Brooks runners in the aim of getting into good shape for Summer and getting fit again. Well, you can imagine my surprise when Fertility Friend advised me 'period was due yesterday' and I did a test and got a very faint line. Anyway, since my first pos HPT on 11th Oct the line has been getting darker (I test every second day). I have had 2 beta draws done. My first beta done on CD 29 (15 DPO) was 111 and the one done the next day (I hadn't realized I should do it every second day) was 205. I had another beta taken yesterday and will get that result tomorrow morning. Mind you, the old indian lady doctor who gave me my first result was quite rude and started off her sentence with, "unfortunately...Ö." But I ignored her and let it be like water off a duck's back, so to speak, as she didn't realise that I was even ttc at my age.

    Anyway, I am not assuming anything about this pregnancy this time. I am just taking it one day at a time and telling myself that if it doesn't work out this time, at least I KNOW I am capable of getting pregnant. Part of me is still in denial I'm sure. I have the paperwork to get a scan done at 6-7 weeks but I haven't even called to book that in yet as I am scared of jinxing it. And I'm not sure of what care plan I would do if it works out. For my other 3 children and the MC in 2015 I saw an obstetrician, but I don't want to go back to that one I saw and I'm not that keen on the FS I had been seeing on and off in the last few years either. I don't really want to see any kind of ob or FS for the whole of this trimester, if I make it through.

    Anyway, sorry for rambling on. I just wanted to update you Atomic as I am forever grateful for all the help and advice and encouragement you've given me the last few years. And to share with my other GD friends. I will keep in touch and keep you updated on my progress. I can't allow myself to get fully excited just yet.
    Hey just checking in. Did everything come back ok with the blood work? I'm meeting the doc today to talk about mine....

    How you doing?

    Thankyou so much everyone for your lovely words of congratulations and positivity. I got my latest beta result yesterday and low and behold it had gone up to 2,520. So going along ok. I hit the 5 mark yesterday and EDD is 22 June 2019 BUT I am still not getting excited yet. When I get the results of that 10 wk NIPT and have the 12 wk scan and get into the second trimester (if all of these things happen), THEN I will get excited. But until then I really need to keep myself distracted with other things and not try to think about all of this too much. I am doing 2 progesterone pessaries a day as well as a low dose aspirin (My FS said this wouldn't hurt), prenatal and extra folic acid and vit D. Who am I kidding? Of course I am a tad excited but trying to keep that as low key and minimal as I can. LOL! I go for another beta check on Monday and suppose I will do that weekly until 7wk scan. Last time I was pregnant and went for a 6 wk scan a heartbeat wasn't detected so I am not going to do another at 6 wks....will just wait til 7wks. I am also really tempted not to see an obstetrician until I am at or past the 12 week mark. It's not like they do that much until then anyway is it? Anyway, thankyou again for all your sweet replies ladies. Will keep you updated and will join a due date group when I feel ready. xxoo

    That is such awesome news!

    With my pregnancy at 41/42 I waited till 13+ weeks to go into the doc's office. I figured what could they even do if anything was wrong and I felt it would be stress I didn't need. I expected bleeding every time I went to the bathroom and just never saw any - seeing that baby on the screen at almost 14 weeks was the best sight ever, and to think I could have been going in getting an ultrasound every week, scared silly every time - just wasn't right for me. So I can totally see where you're coming from.

    Great news. I have worries for other reasons, but totally get you. I went in anyway. My edd is like yours. A day or two before, possibly. The doc wasn't helpful and I made her give me progesterone and she agreed. My numbers went from 12 to 17 and she considered them low but didn't offer anything. My hcg is extremely high and she seemed to just be under the belief that yeah, its low. If the pregnancy isn't producing enough, than it may be a pregnancy that is viable. But because my hcg was so high I said screw that, give me progesterone. So I just started. But I think I will wait to go in. I want to do the harmony test if I make it that far without any hitches. I saw a sac and little thing inside so although it doesn't prove viability, which she made clear, it was a comfort to me at 5 weeks to see even that. Sometimes I hate doctors.

    I'm stopping to check my levels because it had been too nerveracking waiting for the results. And I'm not sure why they are helpful. Taking progesterone anyhow and like atomic said, totally checking if I'm bleeding at every bathroom break. If it's bad spotting will be soon after. Ugh. This is hard but I'm trying to stay positive while still prepared. Best of luck. Keep us posted.

    It's soooo nice to have another lady going through the same thing. Every morning I wake up with butterflies in my tummy and a slight bit of anxiety so I have to get on facebook for a little bit to distract me. Last night in bed I was a bit nervous because I had some cramping going on too. So this is going to be the longest next 7-8 weeks EVER. This morning I have had my first bit of nausea and feeling a bit off, more like indigestion I think. The morning sickness part makes me nervous too as I had it pretty bad with my first two pregnancies. With my third (now 6 yr old boy) it was a lot better and I just accepted that whatever I had for brekkie between week 6 and 12 was going to make its way back up at some point. But I usually felt better for the rest of the day afterwards. LOL! I still haven't even told my DH just yet either as don't want to scare him. I will cope for as long as I can on my own and will tell him when I feel I need to, or if he suspects. I guess when I start vomiting in the mornings soon the kids will soon guess anyway, which then makes it really hard to keep it within the family as kids have a tendency to blab to others in their excitement.

    Mom25boys - hope the progesterone helps you and that you have a healthy sticky one in their too. Fingers crossed. Keep in touch. It's lovely to have another Mum going trhough the same journey. I can't beliebe I will be 47 tomorrow. ARGH! That feels more scary than being pregnant. LOL!

    My latest beta result I got this morning was 16,000! I nearly fell off my chair! No wonder have been feeling queasy this morning and yesterday. But all for a good purpose. I also had a massive blood test to test for this that and the other....4 vials of blood. And a urine sample. Will get the results to these next Monday and have ultrasound booked for next Friday at 7 wk mark. Fingers crossed! I had a minor anxiety attack this morning when I first woke up, but just had to relax and change my thinking to positive. I have only told one very close friend so far. I am itching to tell my kids but am not going to just yet because I remember vividly their disappointment when I had the 10wk MC. Anyway, one day at a time still...am not getting too ahead of myself. But things do seem strangely well-aligned this time round so lots of praying and relaxation. I had to come back and share with you lovely ladies as I would never be here if it wasn't for all of you and your advice, support and encouragement. I want to share as much as possible (and will do more of that when past week 12 and more excited) as I am living proof that if you are determined enough to achieve something.....it's possible!!!
