Pregnant after 35

and so the adventure begins...

Hi! I'm thrilled to be able to post here.  I used to say I never wanted kids but then I met the exact right guy and BAM, I was ready for a family. This is our first and we plan to keep it under wraps for a few weeks longer because of my age and health (I've a history of stoke and seizures).  I think keeping it a secret is preventing it from truly sinking in.  We joke about me being the mother of his child and every time there's a "holy sh*t" pause. The only real difference I've noticed is my dreams have become crazy vivid (and kinda gross).  I'm sure the telltale symptoms are on the way and will expedite the sinking in process (peeing on sticks on a regular basis just isn't cutting it).

Anyway, I'm excited for this adventure and I'm sure I'll be asking lots of questions along the way so I figured a short introduction was in order!

    I should have bought stock in the First Response pregnancy tests because I took so many :)  I am 31 weeks and it still has't fully hit yet.  Every once in a while when I feel the baby move or we are talking about when the baby arrives I have an OMG!  we are having a baby moment.  I find the more advanced in pregnancy I get, the more that happens :)  Congrats and wishing you a nice, uneventful, easy pregnancy :)
