GTKY — The Bump
Pregnant after 35

GTKY

hey there,

seems like this board is pretty dead. I thought maybe we could do a GTKY since it looks like there might be some new people joining.. hopefully we can liven it up a bit!

here are some basic questions we could answer

Your age:

where are you from?

do you have any other children?

is there a reason behind your username?

have you done anything fun this summer or have plans to?

DH: 36

  • Liss how are you feeling? Do you have a lot of symptoms?  This is my first and my symptoms have been mild.  I've been reading about others who have really had it rough.

    Hi ladies :)

    So excited to join the board! Just found out less than a week ago, so guessing I'm close to 5 weeks. I have few symptoms, which is making me really nervous (TW: also have history of loss), but also know it's still pretty early. 

    I'm 37 (38 in a couple months), I have a toddler DS, and DH is 43. 

    Before this I was on TTC after 35 and those women are so welcoming, supportive and awesome.. can't tell you how appreciative I am of that board, esp on those days I felt so defeated.   

    Hey @artemis618! So excited to see you over here - official CONGRATS!!! to you :)

    Congrats also @liss_37!  How exciting to find out you have twins!!

    artemis618Liss_37
  • Yah!! good to see you moving over @Lu19! congrats on your BFP!!

    I had very few symptoms until weeks 6-7 so try not to worry too much!

  • Hi all!  Congrats to everyone expecting their bundle!  I'm 37, soon to be 38 later this month.  I live in Miami and I have 2 boys (10 and 20mos). I'm currently 10 wks and this will be my last pregnancy to complete our family of 5 that I always dreamed of.  I hope everyone has a happy healthy and nausea free pregnancy!
