    This morning, I had a positive pregnancy test.

    ..at nearly 43. This is a miracle, that I conceived naturally after a tubal reversal and several miscarriages. I tried IVF and fertility drugs, but they didn't work, and the process was heartbreaking. I finally went to a counselor who advised me to let go and stop trying to...

    What A Surprise

    I have recently found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant and I am 43 next month. It was not planned, and I do not have any other children. I thought my menopause had started. Not sure what I should do. My long term partner says it is entirely up to me.... I am so confused.
