I turn 44 years old tomorrow, and found out Sunday we are expecting #2.

I met my husband when I was 40, we married when I was 41 and had our daughter at 42.
With our daughter, I was going to start IF (IUI) when we found we got pregnant the "old fashioned way".

We have been trying for #2 since last December, but my husband was still over in Japan (Navy) so it was hard to TTC. I later found that I had scar tissue from my daughter’s c-section that had to be removed.

My husband came home in Aug. and we did a IUI cycle with drugs, but it did not work. We were then in the process of moving to my husband’s new post, and could not do the next two IUI's.

Was about to get ready to start IOI this month, when the HPT came back positive on Sunday.

My IF nurses, OB/GYN and High Risk Doctor are so thrilled when I called them.

Now we just work on having a healthy baby and keep my blood sugar and blood pressure down, and hope Daddy makes it home before the birth of this next baby.

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.
