Hi there Ladies!

I hope you are all doing well. I just wanted to share some news. After a rough time of it last year losing 3 of my darling babies at 7 weeks, 4 weeks and 14 weeks, we are pregnant again.

I am really really nervous but am so far at 16 weeks 3 days. I heard the heartbeat last week which was apparently strong at 147bpm.

The consultant is seeing me regularly and i have serial cervical scans planned every 2 weeks from 18 weeks. My dating scan was good and they were very thorough.

I am waiting for the day i feel movement, i am so impatient! I already have 4 children all boys aged 6, 8 14 and 20 years but its suprising what you forget!! I am still taking folic acid to be sure and am also taking daily injections against DVTs. My IBS is problematic too but am forcing fruit and prune juice lol.

Still as an older mumof 39  (and apparently overweight)I am still quite scared. Thanks for letting me ramble and am sending baby dust to you all xx

Congrats :) I'm exactly 28 weeks today and I still get nervous. I have a 5 1/2 year old daughter and it took DH and I almost 5 years to conceive this one and we had 7 miscarriages in between. I'm also overweight. Keep us updated :)

Thank you for such a welcoming reply. Congrats to you too. I hope all is going well for you. It sounds like you are well overdue in the "deserving" department! It would be nice to know how you get on too :)

Congrats on 16 wks. I love reading the stories of women having babies in there mid to late 30's, doesn't make me feel old for trying at my age, I'll be 35 next weekend.
