a post of hope 30 weeks pregnant

Hello ladies,

Not posted for a while but wanted to update those that have followed my journey over the years on here! Its been a long road but our 4th IVF cycle worked. After all the heartache and BFN's and chemicals we got there in the end at our clinic in North Cyprus.

Its been heartbreaking for me to read such sad stories on here lately and makes me feel so blessed and lucky to be one of the lucky ones. I truly hope you all get there in the end and i mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Im doing surprisingly well for an old bird (40!) my consultant (NHS) had great pleasure in telling me how old I am and told me all the things im at higher risk at because of it. (i felt like punching her) but fingers up to her ive been so lucky and had no problems not even sickness! go old birds!!! I have so far had a better pregnancy than some 20 year olds and I am really grateful for that.

Baby due July 5th they wont let me go over cos im old.... I get extra growth scans with a consultant cos im old... but im glad im being kept an eye on.

I just wanted you all to see it really can happen eventually we just kept going and it paid off. its a hideous journey and i feel for everyone of you going through it, I really hope and pray you get your BFP's xxx

i know it really does go quick! spent years trying to get the bun in the oven didnt really think about having to get it out!! - slightly nervous now!

Hi blondy so lovely to hear this, not long now till you meet your little one 😊 I get you on the old thing, aren't we considered geriatric lol?! I was watching a phone in show on the tv a couple of weeks ago and they were asking if older mums were selfish. Some girl phoned in saying she was 26 and had a baby and said that she thought older mums were selfish as she couldn't possibly go through pregnancy when she was 40 - aka old!! I thought what a bloody cheek!! Made me sooo annoyed, so I'm with you on that one. Ha ha!!!

What a lovely post, which gives me so much hope!!

I too am an ‘old bird’ just turned 40 & recently gone through a mmc at 10 wks on my second round - I’ve been really struggling to find any positivity & strength since!! This gives me hope - thank you, fab news!! xx
