No IVF - yay!

Hi all,

I had my 1st (beautiful girl) at age 36. I waited to start a family for no real reason other than I thought I was securing my career. When we finally decided to start trying we got pregnant staight away so I stupidly thought the same would be true when we tried for our 2nd 18 months later, but no such luck. Two and a half years later we were about to start our first IVF cycle (literally - the medication was in the fridge and I was waiting for my period so I could start) But no period. I took a pregnancy test, rather cynically as I did not believe for one second that I was. But I was! Now only 5.5 weeks and am in shock. I still can't quite believe it, after all this trying - we did the lot, counting days, ovulation strips, sex every second day

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm so happy you got your lucky BFP before moving having to move onto IVF :) How are you feeling?
