So hubby and I were married less than two weeks ago on March 8th and we were planning to TTC immediately after the wedding. Well, I got off the Pill a couple weeks before the wedding and I thought I would try some Ovulation Testing to see if my cycle was back on track. The week of the wedding I got the Happy Smile face on the Ovulation test and we joked that we should “practice” before the real deal. Fast forward to our last day on our honeymoon, I POS and got a BFP. Well, like teenagers doing “it” for the first time it worked! It took 2 regular and 2 digital positive readings to convince me. It’s amazing because I am 39 and my hubby is 41. No one gets preggers the first try at this age. I’m being cautiously optimistic as I am only 4 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I have an appointment with my Doctor for next week, so hopefully she can tell me if it’s viable or not. Has anyone else been down this road? Wish us luck!

Congrats! I don’t think age is as big of a deal sometimes as people make it out to be (people worrying about being over 30 when they haven’t even tried yet). I got pregnant in one shot (literally) also 2 weeks after going off my BCP at 29 (I had been on it 16 years). It’s true when they say that it can only take one time. I’ve had a pretty easy pregnancy and no complications so far so I wouldn’t worry!

That’s great news! I’m 32 and we got our BFP on the first shot. I don’t think it’s unheard of, you just hear MORE about the stories that aren’t working out as those people ask for more support I think. Congratulations! Just enjoy it!

Congratulations! I hope you have a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
I also got pregnant on our honeymoon, which was the first time we had sex off the pill. I thought pregnancy wasn’t likely because (a) my husband at the time was 36 (b) we are both chemists and know a lot of colleagues who have fertility issues and (c) it was still a few days until ovulation. Needless to say, that one time was all it took and I had my positive test 2 weeks later. My pregnancy and delivery went as smoothly as could be hoped, too! So it definitely does happen. 🙂
