Hi - I took a pregnancy test 10 days ago, which was positive. A bit of a surprise, because of my age, even though we have been trying for another baby for a while. Our first child, a boy, is now 3 years old and we had to wait about 10 years before he arrived. I've conceived naturally. I did try IVF twice, a few years back, but didn't get pregnant from that. I've previously had four miscarriages (that I know of), the last one in september last year and the first three before having my son. Obviously, I'm very nervous that this pregnancy will end in a miscarriage. I'm going on a scan (vaginal ultrasound) on Dec 23. I'm also thinking of my age and hoping that I will have the energy for this, now and in the future. My husband is 6 years younger. I've had a few health issues since I hade my son, with inflammations in different joints and herniated discs in my lower back. I'm dreading for this to get worse. I'm, generally, otherwise a fit person. I excersise regularly 2-4 times a week. I had an easy pregnancy, when expecting my son, just sciatica for about two months. I exercised at my gym (2-3/week) up until one week before my c-section. Any other older mums to be out there who want to share their thoughts? Or other mums to be in general, of course.
