I've been lurking for a few weeks since I got my BFP so I thought I'd introduce myself. I have a 4 YO (almost 5 though I am in denial) son and have been TTC #2 for over two years - we had to take an extensive break when DH was diagnosed with cancer. After his treatments were over we had to turn to IVF to get pregnant because of the side effects of his chemo. We were extremely fortunate and blessed to only have to do one round. I am 5 weeks today and anxiously awaiting my u/s to see the heartbeat.
I am 39 and will be 40 when this LO arrives - never thought I would be 40 and having a baby but life doesn't always follow your plans and I am so excited to finally be adding to our family. EDD is 5/29!
