Pregnant after 35

Intro

I figure it's time to stop lurking and join!  I've been posting on the TTGP >35 board for a year or two.  I had my first IVF last month and am more than lucky that it worked.  My first beta on the 7th was 274, the second on the ninth was 876!  We had two embryos transferred.  I'll have an ultrasound in the next week or two and hopefully find out how many are in there!  Very exciting times but also trying to remind myself of the possible complications.  This was probably the one and only IVF that we were going to do so I am amazed that it worked.  Anyway it's exciting to see some familiar faces here!
