    Default 43 and 7w pregnant

    Just want to let people know that oldies get pregnant. Even oldies who couldn't get pregnant in the past. I ttc for 5 years in my 30s - oh the tears and the grief when i never ever got the bfp.

    Randomly, after 6 months of a healthy sex life with a new partner (absolutely no thought of a pregnancy - i grieved and buried that possibility years ago)...i noticed a late period. ..ah must be menopause. Fine. Bring it on. Sick of periods anyway. But no. One pee test later - just to rule out the impossible so i could keep taking my migraine meds without concerns. ..BFP.

    So there you have it. 5 years of trying and nothing. 6 months of fun and boom. Not that I'm suggesting that's a recipe for success. Who the heck knows. I just want to add a voice of hope to those of you who have been trying so hard for so long. It can happen.

    My first husband had low sperm count, a salpingogram (??) showed i had open tubes at 35 and we timed things to perfection for those 5 years. We were experts by the end. But no joy. I figured my fertility was low because I'd spent my 20s having a lot of careless fun but never found myself pregnant.

    I turned 43 last week. The stats are just stats - they explain population level stuff, but nature has her way with individuals. And nature clearly wants offspring.
