Hello everyone! I realize I was reaching with the perimenopause but you just never know. However, I took a cheapo pregnancy test a couple of weeks ago and there was a red plus sign in the window. It's official now because I am nauseous and very tired at night. I have my first appointment with the MFM on January 12, so hopefully all goes well. They will put me on lovenox right away which scares me a bit but it is necessary so I am all for it. I see my OB on the 30th of January. I have been trying to stay calm which has proven to be somewhat hard because I am a worrier by nature but my family and friends have told me to relax and , alas, I am trying to do my best. As for my job, they are very supportive and are aware of the last outcome I had. I am just trying to take it one day at a time. I will continue to update as I have time.

I hope everyone has a healthy and happy new year!!

My mom stopped getting her period at 37 but she was always very irregular anyway, and that is very rare. Stress can delay a period, that happens to me a lot. I would just do a test to see where you stand right now.

I agree, do the test. 38 is too young for pre-menopause and even if we are told that chances are getting slimmer, we still CAN conceive and get pregnant. Let us know how it goes...

I think you should go ahead and get the p-test now so you know one way or the other. 38 is a little early for perimenopause isn't it and since you're usually regular and haven't been doing anything to prevent- well it's possible.

Feeling a little crazy

Postby Shannonlynn » Fri Jan 25, 639269 5:58 am

Hello everyone!! Ok...so as the title suggests, I am feeling a bit crazy. My husband and I have not been ttc, however I am anywhere from 2-4 days late and I am starting to get nervous. We haven't been *not trying* either and I made the comment some days ago that if an oops happened sometime that it would not be so bad. I know periods can be late but I am a very regular girl, if anything it's early, not late. So I am waiting and if I haven't had my period by the end of the weekend I will purchase a pregnancy test. Thoughts turn to perimenopause-maybe that's it. I figure that would be my luck, have a huge tragedy and then start perimenopause right after, after all I am 38. I know I am being melodramatic but I can't help it.

I have also accepted a new job and that just adds to the stress. This job was closed 2 months ago and I knew I was not in the running anymore and then out of the blue they call, I interview, and boom, I have the job if I want it. I am a mess. I wish my period would start so I could just not worry. I think everyone here can agree that when we are pregnant we want to be able to focus on the healthiest possible outcome. Ahhhhhh! HELP! I feel like I am being irresponsible.
