Introduction — The Bump
Pregnant after 35


Hello!  Just wanted to pop over here and introduce myself.  After 8 months of trying, I'm pregnant!  I was in the midst of infertility work up, all labs were normal for me, DHs SA was normal, HSG was normal....and must have cleared out years of Fallopian tube junk because I ovulated 3 days later and here I am!

I'm 37, DH is 36, this will be our first.  I am slightly terrified.  Hoping things will all be fine, but I still worry.  My first US is scheduled for a month from now.

Also, just to warn, I may be more of a lurker but will participate as much as I can. I was on TTC after 35, but I can be terrible at following along sometimes. 
Married: 7/9/15
Me: 37, DH: 36
Started TTC #1: 9/2015
Preliminary labs/testing @ 6 months: TSH, A1c, progesterone, prolactin, SA, HSG all normal
BFP: 5/19/2016, M/C: 5/29/2016
BFP: 6/22/2016  EDD 3//6/2017

  • I have been on The Bump since December and just really started searching the site more....and found this board.  

    I am 37 and am expecting #1 August 25.  There was been some ups and downs.....currently crossing my fingers that my placenta moves away from my cervix so I can have a natural birthing experience.  I have read that one factor is the woman's age.  
  • Hi @Whitewatermomma lovely to "meet you" you might want to do a seperate intro thread of your own or just jump on in to the weekly check-ins if you prefer. Welcome!!
