Pregnant after 35

Intro - 40 Years Old and Pregnant...Again

Hi everyone!

I am back...again.  My DS turned 2 on August 4th.  He was a surprise and guess what?  Pregnancy test showed positive today... another surprise.  I know, I DH and I should know what's causing this, right?  I'm 40 years old, been married 15 years, have a 2 year old at home and I'm scared to tell my parents that I am pregnant again...

I did have two miscarriages prior to having my DS, so it is entirely possible that I may miscarry fingers crossed that this is a sticky bean.

If this is a viable pregnancy, my due date is April 9, 2015, which if I carry to term would be exactly 13 days past my 41st birthday.  I wouldn't hold my breath on carrying to term.  My DS decided to make his grand entrance a whopping 5 weeks early.  He was incredibly healthy and got to go home with us 2 days after his birth.  Wishing everyone happy and healthy pregnancies!

    Thank you, @NeonNoon.  Now, can you tell me how to get the cool tickers to show up in your response?  Apparently, I am ticker challenged!  :-)

    Congrats!  I was in your shoes when I found out too (I am 43)!  We were completely shocked and a little freaked out for a while.  We waited to tell a soul until after our 2nd ultrasound and we have yet to make any formal announcements. 

    Good luck and good vibes your way for a sticky bean!!
