Pregnant after 35

Intro and hello from Florida

Hi Everyone,

I'm so nervous to even post...but seeing all of the beautiful support in the other threads has given me the extra little push I needed.

My husband and I are going on two weeks of shock and we're still holding our breath that this little one will stick around.  I'm 43 and my husband is 50 and this will be our first child.  With the holidays (and our advanced age =-) we completely lost track of my cycle. 

We went to the doctor on Monday estimating we were around 7ish weeks (we had been getting positive test results since Jan 7).  Based on the ultrasound, it looks more like 5-6 weeks.  We saw the gestational sac (yay!) but nothing else yet (boo!).  My first blood test came back at 10,030 and I should get my second test results tomorrow. 

Unfortunately, I've been bleeding for almost two weeks.  Rather than let ourselves get anxious and worried, we've decided to simply enjoy the process for as long as it lasts. 

I wish you all long and healthy pregnancies producing beautiful bundles of joy.

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.
