So glad I found so many other women who are over 35 and expecting. I am 37 and 17 weeks pregnant with my first. Boy, do people make me feel like I am 90 having my first. Some people ask the dumbest questions. I know about the increased risk but do I have to be reminded so much ? Sorry I'm venting
Anyway, glad to have found this site ! Very reassuring,,,,

Hi Ellen,

Welcome! Don't let people make you feel bad. It's a wonderful thing that is happening inside us and people are sometimes quick to judge.

I just moved to Oregon from So. Calif and when I went for my first OB appointment the doctor was VERY rude. He is famous for his horrible bed-side manner but I didn't know it. He is also one of the best around. He told me all about the tests that may have to be done if the ultrasound showed anything abnormal and made a big deal about explaining the risks. When he left the room I almost cried. He came back a few minutes later and apologized. He told me that he and his wife had their last daughter when they were both 38 and that it was the best thing they ever did. He has been much better since that initial visit but...geez!

Good luck to you. Do you know what you are having yet?

Welcome!! Glad to have you here!! People can say the rudest things at times. Don't let it get to you. Let it go in one ear and out the other, it is your life. I have heard and known of many women having babies even in their early 40's. Congratulations on your pregnancy.

Ellen welcome! I agree people do make the rudest comments. It is hard but we need to ignore them. I had two back surgeries in 2005 and I have had so many people question me about being pregnant because 1. I am 40 and 2. because of my back problems. It is really non of their business. I know this is the right thing for me and I feel great being pregnant.

Treasure and enjoy every moment of this pregnancy.

Thanks so much! I do not know what we are having - we decided to let it be a surprise. We went for a sonogram 1 week ago and the doctor said that he was able to tell but we asked him not to tell us. I go for another sonogram (level 2) at the end of March to check anatomy and any indicators of abnormalities. Thanks for your good wishes !
