Not sure what to make of this

I'm 44 years old and all of my previous pregnancies were from fertility medication.

Today I've had a lot of cramping, which I haven't had for years, and sore boobs. Without the cramping I assumed it was my period on its way. I'm not regular at all, due to PCOS, so I don't know when it's due. Today is CD35.

Today I did a test (because murphy's law would have my period arrive the day after doing a test). But this is what I got. It's not dark enough to convince me of anything, but it's more than what I usually get.

So I'm not imagining it?

My history doesn't make me feel great about this. I lost my first bub due to a genetic issue at 23w. A year later I had healthy twins (who are about to turn 9). Two years later I had a little girl who had a genetic issue and passed away aged 2 yrs 2 months. We tried again and had 3 miscarriages before giving up.

I have a 25% chance of the genetic issue coming up again. Plus the added risks from my age.

I will do another test in a few days and take it from there.

I see a line!!

Gosh congratulations Jackrabbit. I totally understand your anxiety, I've had five recurrent miscarriages but I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant and I couldn't believe my luck. I really hope you have a wonderful outcome xx

Did another test yesterday with a clear blue and got a faint line. Will keep checking over the weekend and see GP on Monday.

DH is finding it all surreal. I'm trying not to convince myself to see this as a good thing as it can so easily come crashing down and I don't know what I will do with more grief. For now I'm working on the assumption that this will not stick.

I see a line too. So here's hoping for you. I'd trust a clear blue over a FRER.

But the symptoms you describe are also signs of ovulation in us "advanced maternal age" women. Its your brain and your ovaries have a fight. One says "Oi, you're old, go quietly" but the other say "No, damn you, I want to ovulate". More hormones are produced to force ovulation and that causes the sore boobs and cramping.
