Hello Everyone!

I was shocked to discover I was pregnant at 42 after being told I would never have children. We have 14 month old twins via donor egg so you can imagine my amazement when I had a + pregnancy test. Our baby is now measuring 7 weeks and 2 days with a strong heart beat. I am happy to be here!
Best,
Gabrielle

Congratulations! It looks like we are in the same boat! I found out that I was preg. on my 42nd b-day. I was scared to death. I lost my last baby when I was 39 and I was just sure that I would lose this one too, but that was not the case! I went to the doctor, had an ultrasound
