I'm 43. Been ttc for 10yrs and after 4 private ivf cycles the 5th worked

I'm pregnant. Still can't believe it

Almost 8w and will almost be 44 when bubs is born

Any older mummy to be about

I'm older then I would have liked but sometimes as we know Mother Nature doesn't play ball smile

I'm 41 and 5 weeks pregnant. This is my second pregnancy, sadly the first ended in miscarriage in May.
I'm very excited but quite nervous given the circumstances.

Thanks, it has been pretty awful.
I'm hoping that this one is uncomplicated and that yours is too.
When is your the date?

Hi, also first baby at 41 smile. With help from the wonder of modern science, IVF.

Due sometime mid-Dec, all going well so far apart from the constant worry that something will go wrong!

Good luck to you all, especially those at the early stages which are the most worrisome.

Exciting stuff! I will be pleased when I'm a bit further on but I don't think the worry will ever stop!

Congratulations to you all! My little one is 14 months old, found out I was pregnant the day after I turned 40!
Had previously had a miscarriage then took a year to fall pregnant again.
Absolutely loving being a mum, she really is the light of my life.
Hope your pregnancies go to plan xx

Senior momma here waves Zimmer frame - conceived naturally at 44 and due in October when I'll be 45. No real issues except tiredness etc., but a bit dismayed that they were insisting on inducing early owing to my age. Considering elective cs. Congratulations everyone and I'd love o hear how you are all getting on. flowers

Waves to all. The wonders of modern science indeed !!!

Tho again some also conceive naturally in their 40's

I'm tired but that's prob due to ivf drugs to try and keep bubs in tummy

I'm pleased and delighted that I've managed to conceive naturally both times.
I'm exhausted at the moment - I think it's a common symtpom in the early stages. Can't sleep at night, exhausted in the day!

Thankfully I work nights so coping but not way I could do
A day job at the moment
