Pregnant after 35

Well, I didn't expect to be here! IUD pregnancy

I will be 37 in November, Have 2 gorgeous daughters, 3 and 6. I was recently divorced from a D Bag after 13 years of marriage-
I had the Copper IUD put in June 23rd, checked July 23rd, had a period Aug 1st.....I'm now 5w5d pregnant. Just had a scan and its not in the tubes ( higher risk with IUD) they saw an empty Sack- she told me its normal but to come back in 2 weeks to make sure something is developing.

I've been with the baby's daddy for 6 weeks. Not long enough to know if its forever kind of thing. I was stunned. I took the test to alleviate a "feeling" I had and it was YES+ at 26 days. I honestly don't know how to feel.  I thought I was done having kids. It took 7 years to conceive my 1st, so this is Truly surprising.

  • Wow.  That's pretty surprising.  I'm going to say congrats even though you have a lot to work out.  And welcome to the board.

    Have you told the daddy?  Are you going to?  Good luck with your pregnancy and all else!

  • Welcome and congrats!  Good luck as you sort through things- it will all work out in whatever way is best for you. 

    I'm not going to lie- my heart skipped a beat a little when you said that you were using a copper IUD b/c I'm thinking of getting one after this baby arrives bc we are done having kids and it seems like it would be a little easier than taking the pill every day.

  • Congratulations!
    When I was in the hospital having Spencer, my nurse told me a little sorry about IUD's. Apparently there was one woman who had and IUD and ended up pregnant. I guess they couldn't remove the IUD at that point so they decided to take care of it after she had the baby. Well, baby had a different idea and when he was born, he came out holding the IUD in his hand! Ironic, no?
