So tomorrow's the day I get to hear the , well I'm hoping and praying to that is. I purposefully waited until over 8wks this time because of the ordeal with my last pregnancy in Feb. this year. Then I went in at 6-7 wks and the OB couldn't hear the hb. SO he said just come back in a week and we'll check again, may be nothing wrong. Well, the thoughts and scenarios that went through my head were too much to handle. I remember thinking how could this be happening to me. I went back the next week and still nothing. My chances were slim to none...I waited another week and had another u/s. No changes and was told I had a missed m/c. So I waited somemore, over a month, and nothing passed. I remember thinking why doesn't my body recognize this loss, what's going on. I had a little bleeding, but no pain. Finally, had to have the D&C in Apr. I remember thinking as I left the surgicenter...oh great that was my last chance at being pregnant, I'm done : But, I waited three months and started to TTC again and it worked, the very first month...at 43.5!! Wait, this really is a bonafide miracle because everything I've read seems to say that fertility is virtually nil over 40. You know less than a 5% chance. Yet, I've been pregnant three times all on the first month TTC over 40!! So tomorrow morning really is a milestone for me. Please, oh please God let me hear the .
