Hello ladies,

I'm 40 and 5 weeks pregnant. I've miscarried 3 times. I've talked to lots of women who have other kids that had another baby after 40 and I've met a lot of women who have had a baby or babies after multiple miscarriages, but I've yet to meet a woman over 40 who had their first successful birth after enduring a previous miscarriage or miscarriages.

Anyone like that here?

I'd love to hear your story. I need inspiration and positive vibes. I'm excited, but pretty scared.

  • 40 years old
  • 3 previous losses - 1 ectopic and 2 miscarriages
  • our little angel went to heaven on 8/24/07 after 9 weeks in my womb (we will miss you and love you forever)

I had my first at 23 and my most recent at 42. One of my nearest and dearest friends had her first at 44 after miscarriages and a trisotomy. Her son is 7 now and a little spit fire. Totally normal.

What is your due date?

I am Melanie btw. Welcome to the board.

I had my first at 39, second at 41. I had a very early miscarriage between the two. I had a hard time getting pregnant and had to go through many fertility procedures, so it's different from your story where you got pregnant (on your own?), but miscarried. I'm sorry you had to go through that.

I'd keep positive and keep thinking about that baby!

Hi, I m Becky. My story is different. I had three kids in early 20's. But I just had my guy at 39. My good friend had two healthy baby girls at 41 and 43. My sister just had her 10th baby at 40. I am happy for you. Congrats. You'll be just fine!!!! Welcome.
