Could I be pregnant after trying for 11 years?

I am 41, was told 11 years ago I most likely could not become pregnant again due to having fibroid tumors and ovarian cysts. I missed my period last month. I feel extremely hungry all the time, tired, and get dizzy at times. My breasts are a little sore. I at times feel like I have a tightening behind my belly button. I didn't know if I could really actually be pregnant, or if it was my tumors. I just can't get over how much I am eating lately, like I can't get enough. I know that at my age, perimenopause can start to happen. I know the obvious answer is to take a pregnancy test, but quite frankly after 11 years of trying to conceive, taking a pregnancy test is quite scary because I am afraid to hope. Any advice?

  • Never give up hope! Test today or in a month if you want to wait. I will pray for you and hope you are pregnant!

  • I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!! If I were you, I'd take a test (only because I'd have to know for sure). Good luck!
