Natural Conception after 9 years!!

(140 Posts)
jools70 Tue 13-Nov-12 00:51:21

DP and I are 43/42, we have been trying for a baby for over 9 years. We opted for IVF three years ago, fell pregnant first time with twins sadly lost both, one at 8 weeks the other at 17 weeks (very traumatic).
We tried IVF for a second time but it didn't take.
After our second attempt and our years of trying au natural we decided it was not meant to be.
We moved from stressful/busy London in September to Kent.
Aunt flo was late this month, took a pregnancy test expecting nothing, the test came back a BFP, I couldn't believe my eyes. I took another test later that day and there it was again BFP!!!
I went to mothercares and bought one of those Baby On Board signs for the car and wore it around my belly when I got home. DP was in shock and over the moon.

I'm 6 weeks tomorrow, please keep your fingers crossed for us that this one is a keeper x

Girls thank you for your support x
Its 1am and I can't sleep! I've taken this week off work to think about things.
DP is very upset, I didn't expect him to be so excited about the pregnancy, he reacted differently when we concieved through IVF.
Going to see my mum tomorrow, I didn't want to tell her over the phone, I'm sure there will be tears.
We have a house warming party Sat so planning this will keep me busy.
I'm leaving this post now and will look to the future.
Good luck to all who are trying and a happy healthy pregnancy to all those who have a little life inside them x

Really sorry to hear your sad news Jools, sending good thoughts your way.

If it's any consolation, the same thing happened with my mother. She didn't conceive for 21 years, had a miscarriage at 41 then got pregnant with me. Thinking of you and crossing fingers for the future.

Ladies had the scan this morning as expected I had miscarried, the nurse said everything had completly passed so it was good that I didn't have to go through any proceedure.
She also said I will be very fertile for the next few months so try again asap.
Hopefully we will fall again but we won't put any pressure on ourselves.
Thanks for all your support, we are doing fine xx

Piemistress Mon 26-Nov-12 13:36:45

Hey jools. I hope you're wrong. Good luck for tomorrow x

inadreamworld Sat 24-Nov-12 22:46:06

Am so sorry - I should have read the thread properly before commenting earlier - so sorry for your loss x

Piemistress Sat 24-Nov-12 21:21:11

If the news on Monday isn't good, and given time you feel like TTC again, then there is a great TTC after miscarriage thread on the conception board. I would have been lost without the support of the ladies on there x

Maryz Cote D'Ivoire Sat 24-Nov-12 19:14:27

Oh, I'm sorry Jools. But chin up and keep going, you never know. Monday will at least let you know.

And I agree that the kickstart of your system makes it more likely that you will conceive again (not that that is a lot of consolation at the moment).

Piemistress Sat 24-Nov-12 19:11:28

jools so sorry to hear that :-( we all hope it wasnt what you thought it was and the nurse says all is ok on Monday.

If it was a miscarriage then as said above this pregnancy might very well gave kick started your body. After my miscarriage I went fir acupuncture which I am convinced helped both sort me out post miscarriage and help me conceive. Thinking of you z

Congratulations....I love hearing stories like this. DH's Mum was trying to have a baby for 15 years (in the days before fertility treatment) then DH came along. I think stress can have a major effect on our bodies so obviously the move out of the big city helped. smile

Sleepyfergus Sat 24-Nov-12 15:44:06

Oh no, really hope that's not the case.

If it is, please still take hope that you might conceive again. If you can do it once, there is always a chance it will happen again. We were ttc for 3.5 years and conceived with fertility treatment, and then conceived naturally when dd was 2 (and I'm 40!) I really think that being pregnant 'righted' my body. So hopefully this pregnancy you have is enough to make your body understand so to speak.

Hope you're holding up okay. Take care, look after yourself. X

jools70 Sat 24-Nov-12 15:39:18

Just to let you know I'm pretty sure I've miscarried, saw small sac last night.
The fact that we concieved was a miracle, we will not give up hope x
