    My husband and I have been together for 20 years. I had a bad miscarriage 2 years ago and my former OB took out one tube in the process. After I could not get pregnant we tried clomid but it failed. We had given up and could not afford IVF or anything further. We accepted the fact that we could not have children then out of nowhere in August no period. I called my OBGYN and assumed that it was pre menopause but no pregnant. We are still in shock at 23 weeks but know that this is a blessing.
