TTC after 35

Scared about this pregnancy

Just thought I might ask ya'll.  Yesterday I went for the first sonogram and the heartrate was 78 (I think - may have been 74, but I can't quite remember because I was so upset).  My LMP would date that baby at 7 weeks 2 days.  My calculations had the baby at 8 weeks on the dot.  The sonogram showed 6 weeks 4 days.  I have and still have pregnancy symptoms and no bleeding.  Does anyone have any experience with a slow heart rate and positive outcome?  This is our last shot.  Yesterday I had a hard time having any hope, but today I don't want to give up on Bug.  I go for another sonogram next Wednesday.

 Any input or information - welcome.  I am so upset because I am starting to think my eggs are too old and this was my last shot.  I just turned 41 three weeks ago.

  • Oh honey! Don't let the negative thoughts take over. Your dates could be mixed up. Stay positive and send the Bug good vibes. I'm sending you some t&p.

  • No advice, but sending good thoughts. Try to stay positive (I'm sure that's difficult) but it's good for you and your Bug. Hugs
  • These day 41 yo eggs are middle aged, not old!  I didn't have my first til I was 38 and we are just starting to try for #2 at 40.  Stay positive, maintain your healthy lifestyle, rest and try not to worry.  Sending sticky dust your way.
