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.
