I'm 40 and pg with #1 - it took us 6 months to conceive. I was pg last year but it was a blighted ovum and had a D&C at 12 weeks.
Had my 3rd DR appointment today and all is good. Heart rate of the little peanut was 145 - today I'm 15w 4d - my next appointment in December will include an u/s and I hope to find out the sex.
I opted to not have any of the early testing for birth defects as we wouldn't terminate unless it was so major that the child cannot live. NExt week I do have the AFP (alpha fetal protein) which will use proteins as an indicator of possible defects. SInce it's just a blood test, we're going to go ahead with it. Praying praying praying that everything is ok.
My due date is in April.
I check back here almost daily because I'm really rooting for all you women! It can happen, it does happen and it will happen.
Anyway - that's all my news.
Good luck and sticky vibes to you all!
