My Older Mothers I was Wrong!

Hi Ladies,

On friday I messaged that my two weeks wait was over and my AF arrived. Well, over the weekend, I kept brown spotting, however, it never turned red. I did not think it was strange because I usually spot before my actual period. I had an appointment today in the AM with my RE. I told the nurse I did not need a blood test because I had my period. She said we need to take it anyway to check your levels. So I took the blood test, and discussed different options with my RE. At 12:37pm, the nurse called me very excited and told me I was PREGNANT! That's right ladies, I am 4 weeks pregnant. I am in total shock. When I explained to the nurse that I have brown spotting, she said it is implantation bleeding. I always thought implantation bleeding was a myth. My progestorone numbers are good. She did say that I had 2 follicles, so, there could be twins. For now, I am so happy. I thought I would be so scared when it finally happened again. And I am. However, I am allowing myself to enjoy this moment. Ladies I am 39 years old, will be 40 in April. I hope this gives you some hope and faith.

omg, congratulations! Implantation bleeding does indeed occur, I had it during my pregnancy with Gracie. I thought it was just spotting before AF arrived.

Congratulations again!
