JBaxter, what a sweet story about Nathan. Congratulations!
I am 44 with a 3-year-old dd, born when I was 41. I lost three babies after her; my son, Daniel, at almost 15 weeks, one at 7 weeks, and the last one (in August 2007) was ectopic (ruptured at 5 1/2 weeks). So this is my fifth pregnancy; one living child so far.
Needless to say, I'm a wee bit nervous! I just got my BFP this morning and was on the phone to the perinatologist first thing. I haven't even told dh yet -- I'm thinking about doing it on Mother's Day. After so many losses, I'm even a bit anxious about telling him!
The funny thing is, I did IVF in my 30s, and still have three frozen embryos. (Although all my conceptions have been since then, and all naturally conceived--go figure.) After my ectopic, I decided it might be a good thing to thaw the embies out inside me. So I planned a natural FET. I flew to San Diego a couple of weeks ago, where my embies live, right at ovulation, only to have my cycle canceled because my "lining was too thin and my estrogen too low." So :nana: to them; I got pregnant anyway, the old fashioned way! (We DTD right before I left town.)
