Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be here - got my BFP last weekend - and have been trying to stay busy and not obsess too much - these first weeks before seeing heartbeat are so hard!
In June, I also got a BFP, but it was a 'blighted ovum' where the fertilized egg implants but then stops growing - but the hormones are triggered - so my hCg numbers kept rising, even though they couldn't find a heartbeat - it made me crazy. We're past that now, and hopefully this time, this little bean will stick. I'm trying to just focus on the holidays and then I have my first appt in early January, hopefully to see that precious heartbeat.
At 38, I'm now 'of advanced maternal age' (I hate that phrase) - so that's in my mind a little, about m/c chances, etc - but I guess it's always a gamble, having a kid.
I have two older kids, DD (6) and DS (4.5) they will be so thrilled - watching them be excited and so loving will be amazing!
Congratulations to all, getting this far - I hope we all have happy and healthy 9 months!
