Hi there,

I'm new to this forum :)

I unexpected got pregnant last year at the ripe old age of 41 (after many years believing I was infertile) but unfortunately miscarried at 8 weeks. Recently my partner and I decided to try again and somehow (at the age of 42, with a history of PCOS and with all the talk of how hard it is to conceive in your 40's) I got pregnant this month - our first month trying!!!:shock:

The thing is I want to be really happy about it but am also worried in case I miscarry again.

I'm only about 4 weeks at the moment so it is still early days - the end of my first trimester seems to be stretching out endlessly before me. I need to read lots of success stories I think and take less notice of the doom and gloomers. :lol:

Excited but scared.

Huge congratulations and welcome to the forum!

Im an oldie at 38, sadly had MC in March but I am happy to say I am now 20 weeks pregnant and all is well so it can and does happen!

Try and enjoy being pregnant and although I know its easier said than done try not to worry too much!

Look forward to seeing your progress xxx
