SO i'm 37 and found out i'm pg. About 6 wks. I was not planning on having anymore we have two sons 12 & 7. I'm not really happy about this & have considered ending this pregnamcy. As hard as that might be. I just feel there r too many risks....first i am over 35, i was recently dx w/ MS. Doing well tho. Downs runs in both my side & my husbands side. 1 child each side, or case if u will. My first son was healthy but my second son was born with a birth defect which we didn't see until almost six months through an us. It was his esophagus...it wasn't attaxhed to his stomach so he had to have it repaired 1 dau after he was born. Stayed in the hosp for six wks. He's all good tho. But don't u see all this makes me think that that makes the risks go even higher for me that something will go wrong. And if I wait and do the first trimester tests how accurate is that and then i would have to wait for the second trimester tests and amnio so thats what not knowing anything for sure til about 12-15 wks??? I don't think i can wait and want to go thru all that? Especially because we didn't want anymore....so what i''m trying to figure out is do i go thru all that or just stop it now? I have an appt on monday so i'm going to tell this all to the dr and then see if i come up with a decision. Does anyone have any advise or been in a similar position? I know for sure that i would not be able to care for ababy that is unhealthy some ppl are and i think thats great but i just can't. So very conflicted!View Thread
What does everybody think about screening tests and cvs and amnio's?i'm thinking i want a cvs becuz its earlier in the pg and if anything is detected then i will know that i cannot go thru with the pg.View Thread
Hi Jazzy, I too am also 37, DH is 43. We have two sons ages 12 & 7. This was a surprise because we were not planning on having anymore. Hello!!! I too think i am 5-6 wks along. I have my ob gyn appt tomorrow and i will hopefully get my questions answered. I am freaking out big time and still think 37is too old to have another one! Lol!!!
I am so glad there are these forums and discussions we can vent to. I so can understand what you both are going thru. I am 37 yrs old married and have two kids. Boys 12 &7. Just took a test yesterday and came back positive. I have an appt this thurs with my ob gyn. I believe i am 5 wks along. We also made up r minds 2 yrs ago that we didn't want anymore kids. I also have ms but am doing really well with it. Thank goodness! I also have had herpes for yrs! Hot mess i am huh? I really am conflicted...my husband is fine with whatever i decide which is great but i still don't know what i want. I've read up on the medical procedure of a termination and that sounds alot more less evasive. Am i wrong for even considering this??? So conflicted and sick over thos! Any advise?View Thread
Well I am 37 w/ms and just took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was positive! To our surprise, because we were not planning on having anymore children. We have two sons 12 & 7. I believe I am 5 weeks along. I was dx w/ms last Nov and am doing really well. My dilemma is that I am very overwhelmed about finding this out. I am worried that this baby will have either a birth defect or down syndrome because I have ms. Is that true do you know? I have a ob/gyn appt this thursday so I plan on asking all of my questions. I'm still very conflicted and not sure if I will end this pregnancy or not.
