Hi, I'm mum to 9 (4 bio, 4 adopted) and step mum to 6. At the age of 45 I'm expecting another baby This was not planned. I didn't think I could get pregnant. You see, my bio children are with an ex partner. My husband and I started trying for a baby in 1998 and after 1 year of nothing at all happening we tried 3 rounds of IVF which again resulted in no pregnancy. In 2000 we started the adoption process and gained 4 amazing children in January 2004.

So finding out we are expecting a baby, especially at the age of 45, whilst it's a blessing, is also very much a shock. We weren't expecting this at all. So happy, excited but also very nervous. I am due on September 10th.

Congratulations! What an exciting surprise! You are going to be so happy when he/she comes. I would like to suggest planning to take a good, long 3 months off of everything after you deliver. Tell everyone now, plan ahead, whatever they can't do on their own, they won't be doing. Just my tiny bit of advice. Hear me now, believe me later.

I pray you have a healthy and happy pregnancy and delivery!
