  • @Momifbysea I’m doing great! Thanks.  Ive returned to work and physical activity.  I feel like a new person! We have been cleared and I’m now in the TWW. I’ve given myself to my 44th birthday and if not pregnant then we will stop.  That’s in May.  I may change my mind when it rolls around.  How are you doing?  I hope all is going well and you are feeling good

  • TW: pregnancy mentioned @Mack2342 glad to hear it! It’s been a rough pregnancy so far. The last four weeks I’ve been up coughing all night with bad cold coupled with nausea and vomiting and heartburn so needed iv fluids at the er. Have been vomiting since week 4, sleeping up against pillows on wall with head tilted forward and week 18 now. Ready for this to pass but still know it will all be worth it. I’ve got placenta previa which if doesn’t resolve I’ll need a c-section which makes me nervous at 44, never had one. Trying to focus on good big picture but I’m much more tired than I was doing this at 38-39!!!

  • @Momifbysea I’m glad to see you are at 18 weeks.  I’m sorry about all the troubles.  But you are right, it will be worth once you are holding that LO.  I’m sure it’s much more tiring now.  I was 39 when I got pregnant with my son and it was exhausting.  I hope the rest of your weeks go by better and you get to hold that LO soon.  I started a grad checkin.  So hoping some of you share your stories and give the few of us on here some more hope.  GL and keep me posted
