An unexpected joy

1week ago today, I found out was 19weeks & 2 days pregnant. I had no idea as I was told I had only a 3% chance of pregnancy due to poly cystic ovaries. I put sore boobs down to mastitis, weight gain down to Xmas and being 42, indigestion down to too much eating and leg cramps were just that! I had no morning sicknesses and my lack of periods since November was not so for me!

We are ecstatic and cannot wait to me him/her on 13/8.

Miracles really do happen.

Has this unawarewness of pregnancy happened to any of you?

Not to me but my dsil found out at twenty weeks when she felt dniece kick. Dniece is 1 wk old today and although a bit of a shock they are utterly besotted, as am i.

Congratulations!

Congratulations! I became unexpectedly pregnant at 41. I would have had no idea but happened to have a pregnancy test in the cabinet and decided " What the hell.." My little surprise is now 8 years old..

Congratulations! How lovely to miss out on the early stressful weeks. I did not realise I was pregnant with DC2 until nine weeks but that's nothing compared to you! Do you know the gender of the baby?

Ah thanks everyone. I have had my 20week scan, all appears ok and I made sure they didn't tell me the sex. I want a surprise.

I knew early on but know one woman who had no idea til 7 months went for a scan after she realised thinking she maybe 3 months or so her son was born 6 weeks later, another who went into a&e feeling ill and came out with a baby her mums a nurse and kept saying I would have known if she was pregnant even as the baby was being delivered 😂.

At least your half way there I'm due a couple of weeks after you and feel like I've been pregnant for ages already

Awesome! I had my surprise at 42 too. Although I did have 8 months notice, not 4.5ish... Lucky you to get through the first trimester so easily!

Congratulations!
