    I am 36 years old (as is my DH) and we are TTC our 1st baby. I tested yesterday (I felt pretty sure I was out this month) but I got my B(Faint)P at noon then took a digital test in the evening and it confirmed we are 2 weeks pregnant!!! Keep up the hope, ladies!! I have been so worried and stressed it wouldn't happen. I think having a cold at the beginning of this cycle helped to displace all that energy into feeling better and so I didn't stress about it this month. Wishing baby dust to all of you, ladies!!!

    I used to post on bnb a lot..but I had a miscarriage and was truly heart broken! And needed a really long break...I don't think I've posted in almost 2 years...eve though I lurkerd a little..but after 8 years of ttc...I'm happy to finally announce that I'm currently going into my 19th week, pregnant with triplets! Thanks to IVF. My husband and I are so blessed and are thankful everyday. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 9 months!

    Luvmydoggies--a triple congrats to you! Thanks so much for coming on and sharing this news. It's sad to hear about the heartbreak along the way, but so encouraging to see the success stories. They are what keep us going. Oh yeah, and the incredibly strong maternal urge to have a child and be a mother!

    THIS IS RIDICULOUS!

    Sorry for shouting so loudly, but I don't know whether to laugh or cry because THIS IS RIDICULOUS!

    When I finally noticed that my period was 5 days late, I assumed it was the menopause... like you would at my age... and I assumed that I was imagining that my breasts were hurting all the time and that wine and coffee had stopped tasting nice... and I assumed that my joints were all aching because I'm old... and I ended up telling myself that it was entirely the power of suggestion and wishful thinking that was causing me to eat raw anchovies out of the jar...

    but two very clearly positive pregnancy tests can't be figments of my imagination (can they?)...

    so it's official: I am five weeks pregnant!

    Why is this ridiculous? BECAUSE IN EXACTLY A MONTH, I SHALL BE FORTY-EIGHT YEARS OLD. I haven't have a sniff of a conception for more than two years, and that one miscarried at ten weeks. We've been giving away our baby things, knowing that Rowan was never now going to have a sibling to pass them down to... and only last month, we let our NCT membership lapse. I am nearly forty-eight years old, and I'm pregnant... wish me luck, ladies, because I cannot imagine how much of it I am going to need!

    Hi ladies! I just turned 40 and got my BFP two weeks ago. I'm nervous and anxious and all of the things that come with being an older mama, but also filled with hope and excitement. Thank you for letting me share my news :)
