Pregnant after 35
Options

Stunned to be back here!

Hello all!  I was here on this board when I was expecting DD back in 3/12 (and was on TTC >35 prior to that). My history:  CP back in '09 and then success with an RE on IUI #3.   DH and I had been NTNP since Jan 2013. We both decided that we were OK if #2 happened on our own, but we didn't want to head back to the RE.  I talked to my OB/GYN about BC options this summer after turning 41 (and was going to get around to scheduling a tubal one of these days...), as I just figured it wasn't going to happen and I didn't want to unexpectedly get pregnant after getting rid of all our baby stuff.  Good thing I didn't get rid of the baby stuff yet!! 

I was always very sad at the prospect of DD being an only child, especially as it seems she won't ever have any cousins, either.  But I had spent the past several months convincing myself that it would be a good thing to not have to go through the newborn stage again, teething, etc.  I don't mean to sound at all ungrateful, I'm just so surprised that this happened!!  (And my heart still goes out to any of you who battled IF to get here, been there done that).

I will be about 5 weeks tomorrow by dates (I honestly have NO idea when I ovulated).  Betas were great (see siggy); next step is an U/S and visit Jan 5th.  Hopefully, I will get to know you all better over the next several months (I may fly a little under the radar until we've seen the heartbeat, as I still just can't believe this is happening!!).

    Well surprise babies must be in the air. I've always had to use some form of ovulation stimulation so I've never gotten back on bcp and never really wanted to. I was bugging DH for probably a year for a third baby. He kept saying no so I finally accepted it. Sold almost all of our baby stuff. Boom. Pregnant. Lol.

    Congrats!
