Holy mother of crap! the final instalment of my miracle baby :)

(118 Posts)
nananaps Thu 24-Jan-13 15:32:29

I posted way back in May ish time...
Briefly im 42 and after 7 miscarriages and ttc for nearly 6 years we made the decision to stop.
This was following my 7th Miscarriage in March this year.
I got the pill from GP, waited for af.
Felt very unwell, decided i must have retained products from the mc, so trotted off to EPAU.
Scan showed a 7 week baby with a Hb, something i had never seen (all mcs have been blighted ovums).

I have been an anxious wreck. Posting on the mc forums right up until over 30 weeks, wouldnt put anything on the pregnancy threads.

SO, last Thursday i had my baby boy,
He is amazing and we just cannot believe that this has happened.


So this is my last instalment in the "Holy crap" saga.
Thanks to every one who has followed my story and given me encouragement and happy good luck vibes.

Love nananaps. x
