Hi everyone, not real sure what to think, but I am 48 yrs old, and am 1 day late. I have had sore breasts for the past week, very sore.more than usual, and some smells are very strong to me lately......and also , very very tired.....of course, I am old, so it could be old age too. I have six children, ages 5,6,8 and 16, 18, 20 yrs old.

Aw, sorry to hear that. I do understand the bittersweet feelings though. If you decide to join us in TTC again, you know you are more than welcome!

Hi there, I did take a test, and it was negative, and today i have been feeling very PMS'y, so i think AF is going to start any day now, or minute. I am okay with that. I am a litlte relieved AND a little sad at the same time. I am very busy now with the children that I do have, ages 5,6,8, 16, 18, and 20.......and the older I get the more tired I get..........so maybe I am not meant to have another one....I just got kind of excited there for a moment.......but thanks for asking. I tested this am.


take care and good luck to you!!!!!!

Hi and welcome! Did you test yet? I haven't looked for an update yet, will have to do that next. I would definitely think it could be possible though, but then our bodies can do funny things at that time of the month as we age. Do let us know how you are doing if you haven't already.

Someone I know got preggo at 47 with her first and had a beautiful little girl at 48- conceived naturally.
Another woman I know got pregnant around age 50- she thought she was entering menopause but it turned out to be her 4th- a lovely boy now around 13 years old.

I think once you have had that many , it's more likely you could be pregnant.

44- 5 children already- TTC number 6!

No reason why you couldn't be pregnant. I'd do what the PP said and go get a hpt and take it. It'll be the first step. Good luck and keep us posted.
