Just found out I'm pregnant at 45

45 -
I had used Fertile Thoughts about 4 years ago as my husband and I were trying to have a child. I have 3 children from a previous marriage. But my husband and I started trying to have our own child about 8 years ago.

After 6 years and 6 miscarriages, I couldn’t handle the emotional roller coaster any longer and we gave up trying to have a child. I finally got to the acceptance that we weren’t going to have any more children after 2 years.

I just turned 45 2 weeks ago and I just found out that I am pregnant last week. I am extremely nervous as we typically lose the baby around 6 to 8 weeks. I have already been to the RE [reproductive endocrinologist] and have started preventative measures to hold on to this one.

My first beta was 343 and the second was 676. So, those numbers sound pretty good for my 33rd day. But I am understandably sceptical that this will work. The odds are not in our favour because of my age and history.

Any words of encouragement would be appreciated. We aren’t ready to share the news with any family or friends until we get some more positive news. Thanks!
