Hello, I am currently expecting baby number five at the age of 40 and wanted to connect virtually with other expecting moms 35 and over. I look forward to sharing our pregnancy journey, baby shower ideas, etc. Although I've been down this road many times before, it's been 13 years since my last baby, and I know there's a lot of new information. Also at my age there are more tests required. I also know pregnancies can be different at any age. I am hoping for a natural birth, no meds as I've experienced natural childbirth before. I also hope to breastfeed. Morning sickness really has taken it's toll! Lots of nausea and vomiting resulting in weight loss, and I sometimes feel so tired. I am sure it's from a lack of energy since I am not keeping down food, thus I may be lacking in nutrients. I hope I can tolerate food a lot better sooner than later. The cravings are there but my nausea doesn't allow me to always enjoy those cravings. I can go on and on....
I hope to hear your experience.

Congrats on your baby girl! I'm a new mom of twin girls who are 7 months tomorrow. I'm 37 and it's been a journey to say the least! Let's connect!
Welcome! I am a mom of a 14mo little boy and expecting #2 in November. I'll be 35 in a couple of months. While my pregnancies dont cause nausea they do cause me to eat like a horse! so I have your opposite problem, gaining tons of unnecessary weight. (
