on something I NEVER thougth would happen to me! For 37 years I told everyone and anyone who would listen that I NEVER wanted children and had always said that having a baby wasn't for me....

Well I finally realized that I was convincing everyone else that I didn't want a baby when for the last 6 months I've thought of nothing but wanting a baby and how it will change our lives.

However 37 years old, haven't had a period in 7 years, just a year off Depo and a nervous wreck already I'm sure you can see that I'm VERY new to this!! I haven't even called my Dr. yet to go talk to her about my change of mind...she thinks I'm still on her appointment book for the IUD that she had ordered for me!!! Oh, well!

So, here I am. New, terrified and battling with my husband who insists that we wait until the addition on our house is finished next June 07 before we even TRY to get pregnant. Of course I want to start in January 07 because I'm already figuring I'm not exactly fertile and a spring chicken any longer

Would love to speak to other 37 year olds who are in a similar situation : )

Hi Isabelle,
I'm not 37, but I did get pregnant unexpectedly when I thought (and also convinced everyone) that I didn't want children either. Welcome to Justmommies!

Thanks What was everyone's reaction when you told them you were pregnant? I think we will induce some mild heart attacks and strokes if/when we announce we are pregnant. I think the Queen of England knows I don't (or didn't) want children!!

Heart attacks....strokes....yeah, that about covered it. Everyone thought I'd be a terrible mother @@, and now they say I'm a natural, lol. Everything with a grain of salt.

Welcome to Justmommies! Congratulations on your new journey to mommyhood!!! I am a little younger than you but I have several personal friends that have waited till they were in their late thirties to get started. They are all great moms. I think you will love it here and hope that you make lots of friends here!
