Pregnant after 35

Hi there! [tiptoes cautiously in...]

I've been checking out the board recently, but told myself I wouldn't officially join in until I knew all was well. Got the call today that my NIPT tests look great and I'm 11.5 weeks along with a little girl! Even though this was planned, it hasn't really set in as it's been a REALLY busy time as we get ready for a military move, work to rent out our house, and I wrap up my full-time career by 12/31 to prepare for life as a SAHM in our new area this winter. Whew!  The optimism on this board really helps so much - I'm a little scared of how my energy will hold at 38 to be a SAHM to 3, including 2 under 2. It will be an adventure, that's for sure! I look forward to getting to know you all more over the next few months!

  • Congratulations!!  I would much rather be a SAHM to 3 than a full time working mom of 3 which is what I will be.  I am absolutely terrified because I am already spread so thin. Part of the issue being that my husband works crazy shifts and he's just not home to share the burden so it's pretty much just me doing everything. If he's home, he'll cook and help with the kids but he's just usually not home.  I'm terrified about trying to work full time (I won't have a choice) and manage a household with 3 little kids.  Yikes!

  • Congratulations and good luck with the move!
  • Thank you all! Niknak1208 - that's tough. I was a SAHM mom for my first for 3 years, worked after having my second, and honestly there are pros and cons to both. But it's frustrating when you feel like you don't have options. I'm really hoping to be able to do some work from home while we're at this duty station to keep somewhat of a balance. Fingers crossed you all can find a good balance for your family, but I know it's tough with a partner's crazy schedule. Sending good wishes your way!
