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

If it's any help to you to know, I've just had my second baby at 45, all natural, after 3 MCs and 4y of trying. smile

wow-what wonderful news. Good luck OP xx

hatsybatsy Tue 13-Nov-12 10:27:33

what lovely news on such a drab morning - really hope all goes well for you.

my friend unexpectedly had twins at 41 (after only finding out she was pregnant at 5 months!!!!) and they are now very lively 8 year olds. it can happen!!

MaryZezItsOnlyJustNovember Tue 13-Nov-12 10:29:35

Very, very best of luck.

We had a natural conception after 11 years of trying - and having had a few failed ivf's and adopting ds1 and dd. I have a theory that ivf "joggled" my system, hence the pregnancy.

I was convinced the pregnancy would never become a baby and it was an anxious nine months, but it did, and ds2 is now 14 and almost 6 foot grin.

All the best. Keeping fingers (and legs) crossed for you.

showtunesgirl Tue 13-Nov-12 10:33:03

Oh my! I am stuck at home with a cold and this has cheered me up no end!

Best of luck to you and keep us updated.

terilou87 Tue 13-Nov-12 10:33:35

brilliant news, fingers crossed for you, very nice to hear a lovely story like this cheered my day up grin

TwinMummy30 Tue 13-Nov-12 10:52:32

Congratulations!!! All the best for you!
My DH's parents after 7 years of trying (there was no IVF 40+ years ago) had 5 boys! My DH is the youngest and he was supposed to be a girl so up until he was 1 years old he was wearing pink clothes grin

Oh this has cheered me up no end, congratulations and good luck with it.
I hope something similar happens to my lovely lovely Dsis and her husband who have been TTC with no luck for about five years. smilesmilesmile

Piemistress Tue 13-Nov-12 10:57:42

Congratulations! What great news! X

LibrarianAli Tue 13-Nov-12 11:05:53

What a wonderful thread! The 18 months we were trying felt like forever so I can only imagine how delighted you are.

My parents tried for 8 years to have me. My mum was treated by Patrick Steptoe at the Royal Oldham (just before he 'invented' IVF!) and he told her that there was nothing more to be done and to go away and book a lovely holiday, which they did and while they were on holiday she started to feel a little unwell...

SquealyB Tue 13-Nov-12 12:46:16

Lovely news! Congratulations.

rrreow Tue 13-Nov-12 13:51:22

Wow omg I cried reading your post. Wishing you all the best.

Manda472 Tue 13-Nov-12 13:57:03

Yay what fantastic news, congratulations.

I have been a serial ivf'er- 10 in total and have been blessed with 2 beautiful kids....but......I secretly hope that my body would let me be pregnant once more and be a freebie. So miss my bump
A happy and healthy 9 months to you

Mummyof3tobe Tue 13-Nov-12 14:52:48

Congratulations - wonderful news and you must be over the moon.

Everything happens for a reason and now is your time.

As my husband uses to constantly remind me during our 3 year fertility battle "good things come to those who wait"!

CailinDana Tue 13-Nov-12 15:21:04

Oh dear I may have something in my eye...<disclaimer: pregnant and hormonal>

MadameJosephine Tue 13-Nov-12 16:50:06

Yay!! Congratulations!
We ttc for 5 years, had 9 cycles of clomid, 3 cycles of IUI and 2 miscarriages before deciding to call it a day. Yesterday I gave birth to my gorgeous DD, my little surprise at the age of 41 :-)

Nicky1306 Tue 13-Nov-12 16:53:16

That's a lovely story! Thank you for sharing! I hope you have a very happy healthy pregnancy x x smile

PhoebeC Tue 13-Nov-12 19:02:55

Congratulations, Jools.

I'm 38 and 27 weeks pregnant with my first after just over five years trying, unsucessful IVF, a diagnosis of premature ovarian failure and beginning to accept a life of childlessness.

I have been through such a range of emotions in the last few months I don't even know where to start in describing it - thrilled obviously and disbelieving, but also at times very anxious, unsure and overwhelmed.

We also, coincidentally, moved from London to Kent about 18 months ago, so if when the news has sunk in a bit you'd like to get in touch and compare notes on this exciting, but unexpected life change, feel free to PM me.

Congratulations again and try not to worry too much.

Cheffie100 Tue 13-Nov-12 19:08:34

Wow that is amazing. I wish you the absolute very best of luck

MustafaCake Tue 13-Nov-12 19:08:58

Wow, very very many congratulations OP!

Best wishes for a safe and successful pregnancy!

seventyeight Tue 13-Nov-12 19:44:15

Congratulations!! Jools, we were in same thread a few years ago (the Grapefruit juice drinkers one) under a different name I think. Is that you? I have often thought of you. So thrilled

And congrats also Madamejosephine

Ellypoo Tue 13-Nov-12 19:49:03

Such fantastic news after so much heartache - congratulations & best wishes for a very sticky bean smile

HalleLouja Tue 13-Nov-12 19:52:13

Congratulations on your bfp.

Thumbwitch I was on the secondary infertility thread with you yonks ago. Congratulations on your baby. Hope it was worth the wait. Sorry for the thread hijack. grin

Wow congratulation!!

HalleLouja Tue 13-Nov-12 19:54:53

It's so lovely to hear stories like these. Obviously moving to Kent is the way forwards.

Nana puffs up the cusions on the "miracle sofa" and invites jooles70 over for a decaf coffee and cake.

42 here, gave up completely after 7 miscarriages and 10 years on and off trying for a baby.
Had the pill all ready to take, waiting for af, who of course didnt arrive and hey presto a wee baby with a healthy heart beating away on the scan screen!
Gobsmacked doesnt even come close to how i felt!

28 weeks and 4 days today, booked C section in January and so excited i cant tell you.

happy happy HAPPY miracle wishes coming your way from me too grinsmilegrin

Congratulations to MadameJo, PhoebeC and Nananaps for their little miracles as well thanks

jools70 Thu 15-Nov-12 13:16:33

Ladies thank you all for your very kind wish, not sure if its the hormones but you had me in tears.
We have not told anyone yet as we want to wait until we have tests etc out of the way.
Im being very positive and Im not worrying about whats ahead which is a good thing for my tiny seed!!
I will be 12 weeks on, guess when 25th Dec!!! So we will tell everyone then, what a lovely Christmas Present for the family, they will be trilled.
So you ladies are the first to know xx
Thank you all again, loved reading all the replies.

jools70 Thu 15-Nov-12 13:19:42

Seventyeight - yes thats me hun, hope you are well. Xxx

jools70 Thu 15-Nov-12 13:21:27

PhoebeC - another amazing story, so pleased for you.
Wheres abouts in Kent are you?

jools70 Thu 15-Nov-12 13:24:13

Terrywoganstrousers - I hope this will give give you DS some much needed hope.
I think it was all the pressures of life and the pain of what happened before. We came to terms with not having a baby, spld put property, with money in the bank a big weight was iff our shoulders.
I think it makes a big difference!

newby2 Thu 15-Nov-12 16:07:31

Oh wow OP what wonderful news. Many many congrats.xxxx

jools70 Tue 20-Nov-12 07:40:53

Can anyone put my mind at ease, had brown discharge the past two days, not a lot but enough to worry me, last night I didn't sleep too well as I've had cramping.
We've recently moved and I've not registered with my new doctor yet.
I could call my old surgery?
Any suggestions x

Nevercan Tue 20-Nov-12 07:43:54

Can you go to your local Nhs walk in centre? You don't need an appointment - just turn up

jools70 Tue 20-Nov-12 07:53:10

Just started bleeding heavily so I am going through a miscarriage sad

grainmum Tue 20-Nov-12 08:01:09

Jools so sorry to hear this. Just wanted to say that if you need a Dr you could contact your local surgery and even if you're not registered they may be able to see you as an "immediate and necessary". Take care xx

1978andallthat Tue 20-Nov-12 08:32:37

Oh I am so sorry.

showtunesgirl Tue 20-Nov-12 08:40:01

OP, find the nearest Early Pregnancy Unit at a hospital. They should be able to help you. So sorry. sad

Piemistress Tue 20-Nov-12 09:23:19

Ditto what showtunesgirl has said. When I experienced the same thing I called them up and they saw me really quickly.

Thinking of you, hugs x

jools70 Tue 20-Nov-12 12:32:35

Girls we still have a heartbeat, the nurse said the bleeding could be the lining or implantation she said its not uncommon.
I burst into tears, i was prepared for bad news but not good!!!

MaryZezItsOnlyJustNovember Tue 20-Nov-12 12:33:28

Oh, that's excellent Jools. Keeping everything crossed for you smile

thomassmummy Tue 20-Nov-12 12:48:33

Oh my goodness, a big congratulations to you both!! x

showtunesgirl Tue 20-Nov-12 12:52:15

Oh I am so pleased OP! I too had some bleeding in early pregnancy and now she will be ONE on Thursday.

Piemistress Tue 20-Nov-12 13:02:14

Great news OP!! now sit down with a cuppa, a trashy mag and relax smile

emeraldgirl1 Tue 20-Nov-12 13:08:02

That's terrific news! I really hope you can relax now. So pleased for you, was following this thread without ever having the time to comment and am so pleased to hear you're hanging on in there!!! smile

Splinters Tue 20-Nov-12 14:43:54

That's wonderful, I so so hope things settle down and your pregnancy brings you a beautiful baby. Please take it as easy as possible!

Congratulations Jools! Bleeding is heart wrenching and terrifying but not always the end. I have my fingers crossed for you that this one is a sticker grin

jools70 Tue 20-Nov-12 15:06:37

Thank you all, still have bad cramping and some blood so just have to stay positive and see what happens, the nurse has booked another scan for next Tuesday so I pray my precious little ones heart will still be fluttering..
Strange story but my mum told me she had a dream about my dad last night who passed away a few years ago, when I left the hospital the bus announced the next stop was St Micheals (my dads name) just feel he might have been watching over me today hmm

jools70 Tue 20-Nov-12 15:07:39

Just sat down with a cuppa and watching some rubbish daytime tv grin

lotsofcheese Tue 20-Nov-12 18:25:29

Take it easy Jools Hope you're having some chocolate too x

Hope all is well Jools, sending prayers and positive thoughts your way smile

jools70 Tue 20-Nov-12 22:52:01

Terry thank you, went to bed early, took two tablets for the cramps so will try and get some rest and see what the morning brings x

If it reassures you any more, I had very similar at 7/8 weeks with my DD1 and she is now 9 yo and currently snoring.

jools70 Wed 21-Nov-12 09:36:15

Terry that is comforting to hear.

Still cramping and bleeding, I don't know if baby can take too much more of the bleeding, I'm quite worried.
I have another scan booked in on Tuesday, the nurse said I can call if anything changes.

Piemistress Wed 21-Nov-12 11:02:26

I don't think I could wait until Tuesday. Did they expect the bleeding to stop? Is it spotting or heavier? I would head back up there x

showtunesgirl Wed 21-Nov-12 11:12:10

I'm with Piemistress on this. I would head on back to an EPU.

showtunesgirl Wed 21-Nov-12 11:13:19

Also OP, considering your previous history, would you not be under consultant care?

jools70 Wed 21-Nov-12 12:10:33

Piemaster its red but no clots, heavier than spotting.
Unfortunately I don't gave a doctor in the area yet as we just moved home. I've been a bit slow at sorting that out, didn't expect to need a dr so soon smile
I've got the forms to register.

The bleeding has eased a bit, is there anything they can do? I think nature will just take its course. If it gets any heavier I will give the nurse a call, she gave me their direct line.

The nurse also said yesterday that the sac was smaller than expected, she said that didn't really matter as we may have concieved later, obviously the dates are taken from the date of your last period.
She said there is still life there so we have to be hopeful.
I'm feeling sick for the first time today so thats a good sign!

showtunesgirl Wed 21-Nov-12 12:14:16

It's the only time I'll cheer for someone being sick but hooray! smile

EdwardtheEagle Wed 21-Nov-12 12:47:29

Just read the whole thread - what a rollercoaster. Good luck today Jools.

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

jools70 Wed 21-Nov-12 14:07:50

Ha ha ha, I agree feeling sick isn't normally something to celebrate but I'm happy with that!

It has been a rollercoast without a doubt Edwardtheeagel

I'll let you know of any developments x

Piemistress Wed 21-Nov-12 19:54:13

How you doing? Have things eased off at all?x

jools70 Wed 21-Nov-12 20:22:44

Hi Piemistress, all very strange really the bleeding comes and goes, but the cramps have been like bad period pains. Took two paracetamol and that has helped.
Not sure if this little one is going to stay but I'm praying.
Thanks for checking in, how's you? smile

Piemistress Wed 21-Nov-12 21:18:13

I am praying that the bleeding is nothing sinister for you, are you going to try and get seen again before next week? Might be worth asking them to check your pregnancy hormone levels with a blood test (although I'm not sure how reliable it is?).

Fingers crossed you wake up tomorrow, the bleeding has stopped and you keep being sick (meant that bit in a good way!)

I am moving house next week so in midst of packing frenzy!

jools70 Wed 21-Nov-12 23:29:22

piemistress God I know how that feels we moved a few months back, must say it went quite smoothly, hope it all goes well. Where are you moving from/to?
Cramps and bleeding have eased after taking the tablets. See what tomorrow brings.

Piemistress Thu 22-Nov-12 21:03:47

How are things today jools?

Our stuff is going into storage as we haven't found another house yet which makes it a big more stressful!

ilikesweetpeas Thu 22-Nov-12 21:12:12

I hope that things are ok jools, thinking about you

jools70 Thu 22-Nov-12 23:10:43

Thank you ladies x

When I woke this morning I passed a small clot TMI! Been bleeding on and off all day, stayed at home all week couldn't face work. The cramps have gone and I'm not feeling very pregnant, but then again I didn't have morning sickness, the only thing that happened to me was sore (.)(.) lol, they still look bigger but no longer painful.
Called EPU, the lady was very nice and booked me in for 9:30 mon instead of tues which is a little less time to wait.
I do hope there still is a heartbeat but I have to say I won't be surprised if that is the end of the road sad

Maryz Thu 22-Nov-12 23:21:57

It's going to be a long weekend.

But don't give up yet. Miracles do happen, and you have just as good a chance as anyone of it being ok.

Fingers, legs and everything else crossed smile

5madthings Thu 22-Nov-12 23:24:27

just seen.this, keeping my fingers crossed for you xx

Piemistress Thu 22-Nov-12 23:59:12

Hopefully the weekend will pass for you quickly jools anything you can do to take your mind off things?

Natty4 Fri 23-Nov-12 07:01:15

What a lovely story, love the baby on board sign part. Wishing you a happy and successful pregnancy.

Natty4 Fri 23-Nov-12 07:05:23

Sorry just read the rest of your thread. Really hope and pray things work out for you.

chocolatespiders Fri 23-Nov-12 07:07:16

Crying after just doing my make-up is not such a good look!!!

Such amazing stories on this thread..

Wishing you lots of positivity for this pregnancy smile

jools70 Fri 23-Nov-12 07:24:55

Thanks for all your good wishes x

pie i'm making a Christmas Garland so will try and keep busy with that. Should have had a job interview today but I'm not in the mood so have told them I'm unwell and hope I can arrange it for next week.

Don't feel very pregnant today, no symtoms, although had night sweats again last night, not sure if that is a pregnancy symtom??
Still bleeding, a lot lighter today and no cramps.
I can't stand the waiting grin(

lotsofcheese Fri 23-Nov-12 08:59:43

Oh Jools it's a real rollercoaster for you. The not knowing is definitely the worst part, as you can move on in some way when you know. Monday will hopefully bring you something definitive. I hope you can take your mind off things this weekend x

WandaDoff Fri 23-Nov-12 09:12:13

I had a lot of early bleeding & pain in a pregnancy we tried 4 years for. I also had to wait a week for a scan & feared the worst.

DD is 3 now. Fingers crossed for you x

jools70 Fri 23-Nov-12 09:48:48

Thats lovely to hear.

Everyone gas been so supportive, I felt yesterday that I should move away from this blog as I don't want to bring you ladies down, you are all going through a wonderful and exciting time. I wish everyone a healthy and happy pregnancy.

I'll post on Mon to let you know the outcome xxx

emeraldgirl1 Fri 23-Nov-12 09:51:44

Very best of luck for Monday, hoping it all goes well for you and that you can relax a bit over the w/e x

FreckledLeopard Fri 23-Nov-12 09:52:48

Crossing everything for you. My parents used no contraception for 22 years - my mother wasn't particularly maternal or broody so wasn't fussed that she didn't get pregnant - then she found out she was expecting me at the age of 41. I was born when she was 42. She had bleeding throughout the pregnancy I believe, so really, really hoping and wishing that things go well for you.

Maryz Fri 23-Nov-12 10:14:25

Don't move away. I forbid you to [stern glare]

If all goes well you will need loads of advice on here. And there's support by the bucketload if you need it.

jools70 Fri 23-Nov-12 11:25:18

Maryz lol thats very sweet of you. Everyone has been wonderful x

Freck thank you for you story thats ver encouraging!

Had a few twinges in my left side today where I saw baby on the scan on Tues, could he or she be telling me something! I hope and pray. DP is convinced it's going to be OK I'm prepared for bad news.

jools70 Fri 23-Nov-12 11:27:08

The blood seems to be stopping turning brown, is that good?

Maryz Fri 23-Nov-12 11:32:57

You can't know Jools, it's just a matter of waiting and seeing.

Lots of people bleed off and on throughout pregnancy and their babies are fine, but until you get a scan you can't really give probabilities or reassurances or likelihoods, you just have to stick it out. I have one friend who was convinced she had miscarried, but there was a heartbeat there - in the end they reckoned she might have miscarried one twin and the other one was fine.

I really sympathise with you - I think the first six months of my pregnancy with ds2 was the hardest time of my life. I expected the worst constantly, I just couldn't relax and enjoy it.

You need lots dvd's and distracting books. Do some Christmas shopping online, try to get plenty of rest.

jools70 Fri 23-Nov-12 11:56:38

Maryz thanks hun, I will try and relax, going to make a banana sandwich now LOL.

ScarlettInSpace Fri 23-Nov-12 12:14:05

fx jools, put for feet up and think positive thoughts, you have a pile of nameless faceless strangers, pregnant and [certainly in my case] TTC who are all rooting for you and minijools xx

ScarlettInSpace Fri 23-Nov-12 12:14:42

*your feet clearly. unless you have four feet?? hmm

jools70 Fri 23-Nov-12 12:56:28

scarlettinspace I hope you are pleased with yourself you just made me cry and then laugh all at the same time grin. With a gift like that you will conceive in no time x

PickleSarnie Fri 23-Nov-12 13:36:14

Another one here that's been lurking with everything crossed for you.

It's good that you saw a heartbeat. I had an absolutely mahoosive amount of bleeding at 11 weeks. Was like a really, really heavy period for two days followed by a couple of weeks of brown blood. I really didn't think there was any way that a baby could have survived that.

My now 15 week old baby proved me wrong.

So, whilst bleeding can mean the worst, it certainly doesn't mean it does.

Best of luck x x

jools70 Fri 23-Nov-12 13:37:52

all these amazing stories are whats keeping me going until monday x

Piemistress Fri 23-Nov-12 14:08:49

There is lots of internet shopping on the Christmas thread to keep you distracted! Thinking of you, the waiting and not knowing sucks xx

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

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

inadreamworld Sat 24-Nov-12 17:30:48

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

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

Maryz 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 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

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

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

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.

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

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
