Hi to all you lovely ladies!!
Iv been a member on here for the last 2 & half yrs and read so many posts I thought I'd share my own story, as this group is there to give support and encouragement to you all. I'm 42yrs old and have 3 grown up children. My fiance is younger and doesn't have any children. We have been trying to conceive for the last 4 years.after 18 months we went to the docs and was referred to an ivf consultant.Had usual tests done, scan, laparoscopy etc.. fiance had good sperm count.
Results showed I had a low fsh count and 1 follicle on 1 ovary. No chance of ivf working and next step would be egg donation or adoption. Didn't want to do either and resigned to the fact that I wouldn't be able to have anymore children and my fiance would never have 1 of his own. I then started the process of planning our wedding to Greece in September. And dieting to get into my dress!
After going for a routine cervical smear test last week the nurse asked the usual questions. How are your periods? Are they regular? I said well I haven't had 1 since September but I think I'm going through the menopause as I'm having hot flushes. She then asked if I'd done a pregnancy test and I said no, there's no chance of that ever happening but let's do 1 anyway.
To my disbelief a faint blue line appeared!! I asked her to do another test and then asked another nurse to look at the blue lines that appeared to check we was seeing this correctly!!
So yes iv had the test confirmed from the hospital and we are still in shock and disbelief and I can't believe that yesterday I spoke to the midwife to book an appointment!!!
All I want to say is I never give up hope, stay relaxed and miracles can happen!!! Good luck to you all xxxx
