Hi everyone. Got a bfp last night and due 11th May!
Very nervous about this pregnancy as I'm 46 so positively ancient in pregnancy terms and I've read that miscarriage rates are 60-90 % for my age so in for a nerve racking few months but fingers crossed.

Same due date as me! (Which is also my husbands 30th birthday lol). Keeping everything crossed for you 🤍

Hello! I've already started a May 2023 FB group. It's hidden and private so can't be found by external people.

Here is the link if you want to join:

Let me know if you have any issues joining and I'll help.

@PPopcornForDinner thanks for doing this!! Have just joined too 🌟💓

HopefulDream · 03/09/2022 17:32

@Daisypod Congratulations! I’m 45 (and single!) and this is my first after several losses. I’ve used donor eggs this time and hoping it’s the lucky one. So you are not the only ancient preggers one here 😉 xx

Hi everyone,

I got a BFP last week after 16 months of trying, and while waiting for an IVF treatment!!! Very excited and completely unexpected.

Due 7th of May, which is coincidentally my birthday, too. Would love to join the FB group as well but link doesn't seem to work for me..

Finger crossed for all the ladies!

@PopcornForDinner I've tried to join the Facebook page but it is saying the link had expired, please can you help?

PopcornForDinner · 04/09/2022 20:36

Annoyingly, Facebook only keeps the link active for two days!

New link:

Hi ladies, first of all congratulations to u all ❤️ I hope it ok to join this thread. Feels like I've been trying for ages!!

Just got a bfp today at 9dpo and am hoping it gets darker tomorrow. This is my 4th baby I've had 2 miscarriages this past year but do not want to dwell on that. Let's be happy for once 😊

MrsCristiano · 04/09/2022 23:24

@Daisypod @HopefulDream also an older mum. In my early 40s too xx

sunshine1987 · 05/09/2022 08:46

@PopcornForDinner sorry it says it’s expired again xx

PopcornForDinner · 05/09/2022 08:49

We had a flurry of new joiners 🥰 and the link expires after 20 people click the link or after 2 days, whichever comes first.

But just message me or comment on here and I'll post the new link 😊

✨ New link to May 2023 babies Facebook group:

Daisypod · 05/09/2022 10:00

Hi @HopefulDream and @MrsCristiano good to have some company here. I've had losses in the past too so constant knicker checking going on here but since I'm needing the toilet ever hour anyway that's not a bother 😂

sunshine1987 · 05/09/2022 10:07

@PopcornForDinner thank you 😘

MrsCristiano · 05/09/2022 14:49

@Daisypod omg last night I was up every hour for the toilet. I think I got 1.5 hrs continual sleep 😩

rubygiz · 05/09/2022 17:36

@PopcornForDinner thanks for adding the link I have joined up. This is my 1st a very shocking surprise considering I tried for 7 years with my ex husband 🤣 due 4th may Star Wars baby

LauraA31 · 05/09/2022 18:25

Hello ladies!
Hope that you don’t mind me joining, I got my BFP what feels like forever ago! I’m 6 weeks today.
I am on this and the due April 2023 thread, i originally thought my due date would be the end of April due to short cycles but had an early scan last week due to spotting which dated me back four days…. I am now due around 1st May 2023, but could move back to April according to the midwife who was incredible!

I thought there would be no harm with double the support (because an end of April baby is likely a May baby anyway haha)

Congratulations all! X

Charl881 · 05/09/2022 20:14

@MrsCristiano ahhh congratulations! So lovely to see you pop up on this thread. I’d been trying to keep half an eye out for you and biscuit.

ZeppyLoo · 06/09/2022 04:01

Hello all! Joining the Facebook group, expecting baby number 2 in May!

chloe1995x · 06/09/2022 08:35

Hi everyone congratulations! I got my BFP a week ago due May 11th this is my first pregnancy 😀

I have been trying joining the Facebook group but it says the link has expired


chloe1995x · 06/09/2022 08:37

I have found the new link! Sorry 😂

Daisypod · 06/09/2022 10:28

Anyone else just super hot all the time, especially when doing basic things like housework? Before I took the test I thought I'd started menopause with all the hot flushes!
