I get to post a frikkin *sensitive post* 🙏🤰🥚😇😳😱❤️

So... yeah... I can’t quite believe it...

1. I’m 43

2. My ‘period’ cramps have been so bad I’ve been wearing a sanitary towel for two days

3. I POAS yesterday (10dp3dt) and it was negative

But

I only got a bloomin positive pregnancy test just now!?!

Doc wants me to test again soon as it’s only 26.4 but

My little 3 dayer(s) turned into little blastocysts and wiggled their way into my uterus and now I have a placenta releasing hCG!?!

In shock.

I’m pregnant!

😍🙏☺️👑

Best feeling in the world

Thanks so much for all your love and support. I shall keep you posted! Eeeeeee.

Thanks so much honey. Barely slept last night as terrified it's a chemical or blighted as so low but.. I'll go get tested again on Wednesday and hopefully my little 26 has leapt up to 50 or more. I keep checking every half hour or so as am sure must be on period! xxx

I think it's hard to tell from your first hcg as it seems that the ranges vary so much from person to person. I really do hope that your next set show they are doubling, but until then I hope that you can take joy in that BFP! 🤗🥰💕. I'm doing ok thanks, was such a relief to have my scan yesterday after my scare over the weekend and amazing to get the news of my little twins!! Resting and relaxing for the next few days to ensure everything has settled down xx

Thank you! Was a bit of a shock for us! We started our IVF journey in jan 2019 but had been ttc for 3 years before this but failed due to my endo and blocked tube (which I didnt know about until late last year)! After a failed fresh cycle we did a double FET this time but I was not actually expecting both to stick!! Trying not to think too much about logistics right now as I might totally freak out!!!! xx

Congratulations! That’s great news.

You probably got a BFN yesterday as the sensitivity of most home tests is 25 so it may not have been enough to pick it up. Your levels should keep doubling every 48-72 hours so you should start getting BFPS on home tests soon.

Will you be having repeat bloods? x

Yeah - I think so - must have been late implantation. Slow little growers... Can't believe one made it! I'll get bloods done again on Weds - so hopefully we see better numbers. How are you getting on with your bump? Showing yet? xxx

Reply

I’ve looked about 4 months pregnant for ages but it’s bloating from the medication and eating too much on the steroids mostly. In a few weeks when I’m off everything I should be able to see what is baby. All going well. Had a reassurance scan on Friday and baby was wriggling and had strong heartbeat.

Only 2 weeks until my 12 week scan. Can’t wait.

Hope all goes well for you x

We had a MMC a while ago and we’ve our official consultant appointment in September, so it’s likely. We’re still trying obviously but no BFP as yet. My weekly reflexology has de-stressed me massively and I feel more positive about all the tests etc, we’re currently unexplained as they can’t find anything too wrong! We’ll be going privately (and possibly abroad) after getting our NHS tests completed as my partner has a lovely teenage son from long ago, plus my age means we don’t qualify for much help in our local area. This group has helped me to find information out massively and reassured me that +40 births do happen! Xxx

Yeah I have two stepkids in oz, 10 and 13. Miracles can and do happen all the time. We’re just not in control. Unexplained with my husband and I too. Got married at 40 and thought would just happen... so sorry to hear about your MMC. Good luck for Sept. I looked at clinics in UK but Greece was so warm and friendly we chose there instead xx

Reply

Sounds similar to my situation... except you have the BFP already! Hopefully it I’ll get one soon! Could you pm the details of the Greece clinic you chose? I’m interested in recommendations.
