I just joined the board. I am 35 and just found out I am pregnant. This was unplanned. I was taking birth control pills. I am a little scared of my age and I also have a severally disabled handicapped child. I am worried about a healthy pregnancy and lifted my son who is 54 lbs of dead weight. And of course being unplanned my husband and I are not finacially at a good point with me having no job or insurance.

Anyway I look forward to talking to you all and finding help and comfort in this pregnancy.

Shawn

First off welcome!

Secondly MEDICAL...you need to go to your State Department of social services and apply for state medical since you are pregnant you most likely will qualify! As for being worried I understand you have reason to be since you have a child with a disability and that may even make you high risk (I am un sure of your child’s handicap).

Remember that there are plenty of women here that are in their mid 30's-mid 40's and have had or are having healthy pregnancy's and births.

My mom was 36 when she had me in 1978 and then 40 when she had my sister in 1982 and neither of us has any disability.

One of my sisters was 36 when she had her last baby and it was a happy, healthy, and uneventful pregnancy and birth.

I also have a sister who gave birth to my nephew when she was 23 and her son was born with down syndrome...then went on to have another son 7 years later who was born with no disability.

Again welcome to JM

Thank you for your words. They do help. I am going to dhhs on Tuesday to sign up for medicaid for pregnant woman. Since we have a household of 4 already and since I am unemployed since I moved to my new home I believe we will qualify for medical assistance. I am definately a high risk pregnancy with my son's birth and my age. What happened to him was the cord wrapped around his neck twice at the time of birth. It was a freak thing of nature not genetic. He is a blessing.
