Well I am joining the crowd I guess! I am a 39 year old mother of 2 girls-16 and 10. I have been divorced for almost 5 years now and am dating (and living with) a wonderful guy for a little over a year (who happens to be significantly younger than me).
We have made the decision to get married and try to have children. We began in early August, then for no reason, my arm started hurting badly-nerve pain, aches, etc. After a ton of tests they discovered a lump in my right breast, which turned out to be a fibroid tumor. The all clear was given in early November (altho nothing was ever discovered about my arm, which still hurts!)
The beginning of November is when we really began to try. I have been keeping track of cycles, etc. Last week after sex there was a significant amount of blood-and I really felt that I was pregnant prior to that. I had just been feeling sick, boobs seemed huge and when squeezed I had a clear discharge which was the first sign of pregnancy with my 2 girls. After the blood I realized that this had been happening quite frequently after sex since about the same time as my arm/breast oredeal, but I had just kinda written it off to age, or being close to my period, etc. It had previously been more spotting but this time-and the next day were more bleeding than spotting.
Anyway, I have an appointment with the gyn next week to see if anything is wrong. It is probably my paranoid self but I just fear that its something awful and I wont be able to have more children :(
I guess I never realized getting pregnant is actually not as easy as it seems. Both my girls were accidents and we never really "tried" to have kids-it just happened. Anyway I am here for this journey. WTB patience!
P.S. Has anyone had experience with fibroids growing in multiple places (ie breast and uterus) at the same time?
