Intro — The Bump
Pregnant after 35


Hello!  I have been lurking for a few days, so I figured I'd introduce myself.  Me: 36, DH: 37.  TTC#1 for about a year.  Finally got a BFP last week.  I am around five weeks and had blood work done today:  hCG - 5516, progesterone - 18.5.  The nurse said these numbers are good, so I guess it's starting to sink in a little bit.  I go for first u/s on the tenth, and until then, I think I'll just continue to be a nervous wreck!  I look forward to "meeting" everyone!

  • Thank you all for the warm welcome.  I have o many questions, and I am sure I will learn a lot from this board.  

    Pookster1020, I'm not really sure yet of my due date.  If I go by my date of ovulation (based on BBT and OPKs using the FF app), then I should be due on June 2.  But both the OB's and the RE's office calculated using the first day of last AF when I called on the phone, which would make me due May 28.  I assume when I go in for my first appointment and u/s, I will get a definite answer.

  • I say you should stay in May as far as the bump is concerned. :)
  • @ScubaMomma posted this link a while ago:

    For a fun, possibly more accurate due date calculator.
    Here's the link

    It seemed to make sense for me - I am due by the OB at 12 January, 2015, but both the scans I've had and this due date calculator put me more like the  6th Of January  - so far the baby is growing at a rate more consistent with at minimum a week ahead than I am meant to be, so I guess time will only truly tell - but have a go, its a bit of fun if nothing else. 
    Good luck on your upcoming appointment - how exciting for you!! Congrats.

  • @ewenner - We'll be due with in days of each other!  That is unless i find out tomorrow that it's twins!
