I think I'm graduating from this board!

Hi! I am usually a lurker and an occasional poster here. I'm 41.5, SO is 30. I have 4 kids from previous marriage and one with SO. DSs 21, 14, 12 and DDs 7 and 2.5. My SO and I decided we wanted to have another one so we wasted no time TTC due to my age. My cycles had been kinda off since getting off of BCPs almost 1 year ago. But for the past 2-3 cycles AF has come like clockwork and I was able to guesstimate my fertile period. I am 3 days late but had all the symptoms, sore breasts, tiredness etc. so I bought a First Response kit tonight and lo and behold, 2 lines...I'm pregnant! I am elated and at the same time terrified. I don't even want to tell anyone yet because I worry about miscarrying. I also worry about birth defects and whether or not I am physically up to this. OMG! I still can't believe it. Thank you for reading this! And good luck, prayers and positive thoughts to all the TTC 40+ ladies.

Congratulations on your success. Please, if you do graduate, dont forget to check the boards here and occasionally inspire those who are trying. Its unfortunate when people graduate and dont look back. Many of us come here for support and hopes of some sort of advice.

Sticky vibes!!!
