I've been on and off of this board for several months now and wanted to give everyone an update on my news. I hope that this is an inspiration to all of you!
I'm now 44 years old. I got married 3 weeks before my 40th birthday and had my first child "naturally" at 41. For over a year now, we've hoped to have another. I've had three miscarriages since August of '05, however, and was beginning to lose hope. This summer, at my RE's suggestion, I tried injectables for two cycles. Nothing came of it. Then we took a two month break, during which time we went on vacation as a family and, well, wouldn't you know it. I'm now 8 1/2 weeks pregnant, with no intervention.
Given my history of miscarriage, I'm still nervous about this, but got some good news today when they got a strong heartbeat during the sonogram.
I'm posting this to say to everyone DON'T GIVE UP! God willing, I'll be less than a month from turning 45 when this baby is born.
