My oldest is leaving for college in the fall. And I was not a teen mom. I had him at 24 yrs old. He recently turned 18. So if you did the math, I am currently 42 yrs old.

I have known others to have babies at 42. And I would love to have another baby. So much for that I "tried" for getting pregnant. I had a baby last year.

Here is the story behind this. I had a baby last year. My periods never returned to normal. I went back to the OB and she ran blood work. She said I am not having menopause. She sent me on to a specialist. There, they said my eggs are too old. I would not get pregnant again. She said maybe a fluke and I would. But she also said that if she had seen me before I got pregnant with my precious 1 yr old, she likely would have said the same thing. So have at it.

I left and cried for a while. Hearing that your eggs are too old is finding out a part of you is dying.

Then we got a call and we might be taking in a teenaged foster girl. She is pregnant. I have spoken to her. Her current placement is not working out so well. So, if they do not find someone else (Relatives get first chance) she will come to me. I am thrilled!!!! This girl is such a lovely girl! And it made me remember that I have always wanted to become a foster parent someday. Realistically, we won't pursue it until our first two are done with college (which hopefully will be in 5-6 years), but, it is a goal for me. As far as we can tell, the girl won't actually end up coming here as shortly after we were asked, we got a call that a relative has stepped in and they are working on their clearances and such to take her.

ANYWAY, so back to me, I prayed hard, very hard, for another baby prior to finding out this girl might be coming here. I was ovulating. Then tonight, even though it was a bit early to test, I tested. I swear I see a line! But if I stare at it long enough, I cannot see it anymore. Then I blink and there it is again!

This has been an emotional week. I guess I will know soon enough. I probably should not even be posting. I worry that posting will "jinx" it all and nothing will come true.
