I am pregnant for the 6th time....my first resulted in dd 20;second in ds 15, and 3,4,& 5 ended in miscarriages at 5-6 weeks.  I am elated to have made it to week 7 and still going this time.

I am 42 and dh is 57.  Needless to say, we were not trying to get pregnant, but........

With my history of recurrent miscarriages, I will be having an ultrasound done on Thursday and an ob appt on Friday of this week.  The doctor already did a check of my hcg and progesterone levels and they both came back normal.

congrats Lisa!  My last 2 pregnancies ended in missed m/c's.  I can't seem to get past 8 weeks....so I know how scary it is to find out your pg & hold your breath until the 1st trimester passed!  :smileyfrustrated:

I wish you good luck, a healthy & sticky bean! And please keep us updated with how everything is going!  :heart:

Ultrasound today had baby's heart rate as fast as it is supposed to be. When they did the ultrasounds with the ones I lost, the baby either had a very slow heart rate (slower than an adult resting heart rate) or none at all, so I admit to shedding a tear of relief/joy when the ultrasound tech said the baby's heart rate was around 150ish today and the baby measured to within a day of my lmp....lmp has me at 7w5d and baby measured 7w4d.
