I'm 57 and was married in June. I have two grown daughters, 27 and 25, and was pregnant when I was 48 but it was ectopic. It was a real heartbreaker. I have not had a period in about a year and so I have not used any bc since I was married in June. In August my breasts became very tender and I was extremely nauseous, had to go to the bathroom every half hr, so I took an hpt even though I knew it was impossible for me to be preg but it was negative so I tried to dismiss it. The symptoms continued and I went to a gyn and she said I could not be pregnant and if I was I would not ever be able to carry to term and ordered a blood test to check for menopause. The test came back normal whatever that means, and I was so upset that I convinced myself that I was imagining the symptoms. I eventually two months later tried another hpt and it was positive,first response, and 3 more were also positive. I decided though to wait until I felt movement and then I would go to a doctor. I would now be 20 weeks from the day I felt nausea and I am sure I feel something moving in there. I have a big bulge that is getting harder to hide, and feel movement off and on all day. Still have tender breasts a dark line on tummy and nausea occasionally. Tired most of the time. Still work full time and worried. So I will probably go for a private sonogram after Christmas. Doctors make me feel foolish. Not sure what to do!

A warm welcome to Shelaughed! My husband and I actually joked about starting a board called "SheReallyLaughed" once when I thought I might be pregnant (in my 50's!), but I wasn't and we didn't. Smile

I am praying for you! Please do keep us updated! What an amazing thought --but still, that's not as old as Sarah was when she had Isaac. Very Happy

Praying for you to have good health and the peace of the Lord and His blessings!
