Intro over 35 and PGAL — The Bump
Pregnant after 35

Intro over 35 and PGAL

Hi Everyone! So I got my first HCG results back today and finally felt like I should do an into here. 

My name is Rita, I'm 37 (will be 38 in July) and my DH is 34. We are currently pregnant with our second. Our DD was born in November 13 and if we are lucky this one will be born in Nov 16, so exactly 3 years apart. We have been TTC for about a year and a half and last year we had 3 losses1 (CP and 2 MC's). Needless to say Im still super nervous and only cautiously optimistic at this point. I want to see a good strong heartbeat before I really get my hopes up BUT I had my first HCG done at 15 DPO and it was a good number, so now I just need to see if its doubling appropriately.

Anyway I just wanted to say hi! I hope I get to stick around and get to know all you lovely ladies!

  • Congrats and welcome! Glad to see another TTC>35 grad! The early days are always a little nerve wracking especially after loss, but I'll keep everything crossed for you. I've found this to be a very supportive board in my freak out moments!
