I'm 41 and nearly an empty nester, with all kids in college and some already have moved out.
I don't have anyone in my life who is pregnant, or even has little kids. I'm feeling kind of alone facing all the "you're over 40" high-risk stuff.
MJGgirl:So are you TTC?
I'm sorry - I must have deleted by mistake ... I found out earlier this week that I am pregnant.
Hi I am way over 40 lol I will be a freak of nature in my area as most moms here stop having or wanting babies by 25 (they start at 16) When I had my son 13 yrs ago at 36 they thought I was nuts? strange. I lost twins at 44 due to a car accident and now at 49 have the pleasure of being pregnant.
If you want to talk I would like a buddy
It was an awful, horrible, icky pregnancy and birthing experience. I would do things sooo differently if I could do it over. I am still not recovered. I don't want to scare anyone so I don't say much about it. I have asthma and high blood pressure and was super high risk. Lots of personal stuff that I don't share much. Message me if you want.
On the plus side I have an amazingly healthy and wonderful daughter...and my hubby has been great. The doctors at ROC were awesome. There are just some things I would do differently if I could go back in time.
