So my husband and I have 2 beautiful daughters age 12 & 9. Due to alot of medical issues and surgeries we were told 5 years ago I'd probably never be able to successfully carry anoither child... but as my midwife put it, we are now pregnant with our miracle baby. 12 weeks on Tuesday. But now I'm over 35, and everything feels brand new... I'm spook exhausted and sick. I'm just looking for others who have had such distant pregnancies or any confo dying suggestions on our new journey.
Re: Pregnant with 3rd child after 9 years
I was really surprised how much more tired I was the second time there were several days when all I did while my dd was at school was sleep.
Don't worry about age so much, if you can get pregnant at the age you are, things are in your favor. I was 37 last time and will be 40 at delivery this time.
I too feel like this is the first time , nervously excited.
No Folic acid/pharmaceuticals/supplements (too many to list- private message me if interested), IVIL infusion
so many worries.
Haven't told my girls yet. My viability scan is this Thursday.
Me: 40 | SO: 32
DDs: 11, 7.5 | Due: 22-Dec
We're having another GIRL!!
SO much has changed! I can work out in any way that I’m comfortable with, whereas 10 years ago I wasn’t allowed to lift over 20lbs. Now I deadlift 230lbs and plan to for as long as possible (doc’s orders 😉). I can download an app to listen to the hb instead of paying $200 for my own Doppler. Still can’t eat raw oysters, or take Advil, but I can deal with that.
