New to the bump — The Bump
Pregnant after 35

New to the bump

Hi ladies! It's been a while since I Have been on pregnancy boards. My 2 boys are 10 & 11. Dh (27) and I (35) decided to start trying last month thinking we were in for a long hull of TTC. We were fortunate enough for a BFP the first month. Which now leaves me pretty terrified. Statistics are a scary thing and though I did join the Nov 2016 birth club I feel as though I may get more valuable, pertinent information from here. Everything seems so different now. Anyway, I am really looking forward to getting to know all of you.
