@rjgmcmanus @mrszoobear I feel like a broken record over here - but I can't say enough good things about Emily Oster's Expecting Better. She talks about how people reference 35 as this "cliff" of fertility... and data and research show it isn't. I think its important when people say "oh the risk is higher or it will be harder" to go, "well how much? Are we talking 1 in 10, 1 in 1000" there's a big divide. I am so glad I "waited" in the eyes of so many people to get pregnant - and guess what, each of our own feelings on this is what matters the most. My aunt was 40 and 44 (and drank a glass of red wine almost daily) when she had my cousins who are 27 and 23 currently; both have masters degrees, great jobs and are fun well adjusted humans.
As my mom has said to me my whole life: you have to get up every day and look in the mirror at yourself, and if you are happy and ok with what you see then that's all that matters. Don't let other people's opinions spoil your choices.
I will now step off my "seek your own joy" soapbox and go back to eating pizza for breakfast which I'm sure would mortify LOADS of people.

Hi everyone!@anniemarie887- I’m a big little lies fan. I have only watched the first episode of season 2 so far, but I’m already loving/hating Meryl Streep.@kymaesim- this has been my dilemma lately too and we just purchased a Honda Pilot. I also considered the sorento, and the Hyundai sante fe because we wanted to stay under 25k (used but yrs and low miles). We ended up going with the pilot because it had more bonus features for the price and I love it. It has the automatic lift gate, 3rd row, and the kids can’t get over the fact that it has 16 cup holders. Lol. I also liked that leather was standard in the pilot which it isn’t with the other 2 we considered. Happy shopping!I also second the not so cute pregnancy! I just look bloated and the acne is killing me! Hope it subsides a little now that it’s 2nd trimester time.And I love seeing all the various ages. I will be 32 when this one comes, but my soon-to-be husband will be 41.Hope everyone has a great weekend!
