I'm 43, will be 44 in August & in my 6th week

I'm 43, will be 44 in August. I had started to worry that it might never happen and had gone for an IVF [In Vitro Fertilization] consult after my last IUI [Intrauterine Insemination] (the fifth) with plans to do an IVF [In Vitro Fertilization] cycle in July. Then, low and behold, I found out that the fifth IUI [Intrauterine Insemination] worked.

I am now in my 6th week, so it is still very early. I'm a little wary even of talking about it, for fear of jinxing myself.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
