Oh no tag....so sorry! Are they getting you back to repeat the scan in a week or two? Fingers crossed you might just be earlier than you think x x

Hi ladies, hoping I can join your group (I'm 41 and 11 weeks with what will hopefully be my second).

I really hope it is just too early tag74. Do you have a follow up scan/appointment?

Welcome Shanoa...not as many over 40s mums as I was expecting unless they are all a bit shy. Hope you're feeling ok x

Thanks everyone, things are still sinking in. It's honestly a flip of the coin but I'm not having a good feeling about this...

I did get blood work. In one week it went from 1400 to 4100. Doesn't seem to be a good rise.

They wanted to do a scan on Monday but I asked it be pushed out until next Thursday as I think that scan will be very telling and will paint a clear picture. Hoping it's a stubborn little bean...but not feeling optimistic. Thanks for your thoughts.

Welcome carry!!! No mention of twins here please joking but it's a big worry for me. Even with my scan last week only picking up one bean and HB I am convinced a second one will jump out at 12 weeks scan. Sure I am worrying about nothing.

How old are your other kids?

Hi all. Tag - keeping fingers crossed your scan shows a heartbeat x

Def just 1 baby here! Twins are more common in over 40s but still pretty rare. I wouldn't worry too much (and ultimately what will be will be!)

I'm shrugging my shoulders a bit about the higher risks to be honest. I've been told there are various higher risk things but nobody seems to say how much higher the risks are so its all a bit meaningless. Baby is coming out one way or another so I'm not going to stress about the higher risks - I'll weigh up what is the lowest risk and best for me and will go with that. I'm trying to eat pretty well, I'm fairly active on a day to day and I'm doing as I'm told medication wise. Aside from that I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping all is well - there's not much else I can do! This will be my last pg so I'm trying not to ruin it by worrying. Easier said than done!!

I'm trying not to stress too much.....I feel pretty good the last couple of days, still a bit nauseous, sore boobs etc

I think I am going for the NIPT test....similar to harmony. I don't want my age to inaccurately sway my nt/bloods and want a true test done. Have to pay private but I want piece of mind so think it's worth it x
