My husband and I found out yesterday that we are expecting our first child together. We are both over the top with excitement. This is something we both wanted very much. He has a 6 year old son from a prior relationship and I have a 23 year old daughter. We have not told many people at this point. We are not sure how my daughter and son in law will take this as they are having a difficult time ttc. They knew we were trying and think we are nuts due to our age. I am hoping for some help from others as it has been a long time since Iwas last pregnant and things sure have changed...

Thanks for the encouragement. I had given up hopes for another child after I divorced years ago.
My new husband and I consider this our miracle baby. He wanted a baby all along but I was afraid to try as I did not want to deal with the disappointment. My mom asked me when we would have a baby. I told her I was too old. She said never. After she passed away from lung cancer earlier this year my husband brought the subject up again. I told him of the conversation with my mom and we decided to try for a few months. We figured if it was meant to be it would happen with my mom's blessing. We tried for 2 cycles and baby is on the way. I believe I am about 6 weeks.

Congrats for having a new baby! Since you are 47 now and pregnant I think you must be free from stress and avoid too much strenuous activities.

Sad to say, but I miscarried last month. My ob/gyn has given my husband and me the ok to try again. I asked if my age conributed to this but he told me that people of all ages miscarry everyday. Hoping for a good outcome this time around.

Wanted to say how sorry Iam that your lost your miracle. Dont give up hope, I had 4 children early on and then in my second marriage at age 38, I lost 3 in a row, and went on to have 2 healthy little girls at 40 and 41, and now pregnant with my 7th (son)turning 42 in Dec. and doing very well. Three loss's followed by 3 baby's. It does and can happen!

So extremely sorry for your loss. Your ob/gyn is totally right about it being at all ages - I miscarried at 34 and 35, 'random occurrences' (both genetic, unrelated).

Warmest wishes for the next pregnancy to come soon and stick well!

Thank you Tasha Mae for my fantastic siggy!

We're due Jan 31st!!
