Hi there - I searched the site and couldn't find a recent relevant thread on newly older mums to be - so......thought I would start one.
I am 46 - and totally incredibly have just found out that I am pregnant - naturally. I have posted earlier in the year on the donor egg forum as was all set to go to South Africa to do IVF with donor eggs.
Obviously the stars aligned in the most mysterious way in the last month - where I have met someone - and in true re-teenage first love reckless form, got pregnant in the first month.
Wow - wow - wow. I would love to share the experience with any others in my situation.
I have never been pregnant, never really tried, apart from 3 tries at "AID" using overseas anonymous sperm at that beginning of the year. That was pretty much all I could afford in terms of tries - so decided to give up on my own biological material.
This feels truly miraculous. I am only "5 weeks" - so first thing is to see whether I get beyond the miscarriage stage and the 12 week tests.
Whatever happens - I just feel incredibly endorsed somehow. That something I wanted to so much happened in such different circumstances.
Look forward to hearing from others and hearing their stories.
