Trying Not to Get too Excited
Sun, 07-24-2011 - 9:26pm

Hi all! My name is Karen and I am the mom of three wonderful girls. They are ages: 13, 10, and 4. I just got a BFP!! Now some history...

With my first three I had no complications or anything to worry about. All were healthy pregnancies. However, last September I misscarried our fourth at 9 weeks of pregnancy. I then had a chemical pregnancy back in April of this year. Now I got a nice solid positive line on my pregnancy tests. I am trying so hard to not get too excited. But it's hard. I am definitely fearful that this one will not stick either. However my hopes are still high.

I am 35 going on 36 and my husband is 41. So we are definitely older parents. I am feeling like this is my last year of trying for a fourth. I don't know why I want a fourth so bad, but I do. I used to say that I never wanted children. But my three girls are all so wonderful and I am so blessed to have them as my children. I hope that this one will stick and I can stick around. My due date is March 31st (though I have not been to doctor's office just yet!).
