so, i only added those women who were discussing the new thread, and one recent birth, just in case others aren't interested.

i'd be happy to add anyone, so just let me know!

and, if anybody wants to look back through the old thread and find other birth announcements, other members, i'd love to add those too.

hope this is ok - any suggestions are welcome. and i'll pass off the keeping to someone else for september

post #10 of 94
Well, I don't need to be added as I am already there, but thought I would introduce myself.

I am a QFGMPoAMA! (I just LOVE long titles!)

That is I am a QuiverFull Grand-Multi-Para of Advanced Maternal Age.

My name is Jenny and I am 39 this year!
My Hubby is Bryan and he is 43 this year.

I am currenly pg with our #10.

I have birthed eight live babies, lost one daughter, and had one 18wk loss. So I have seven living children.

This little blessing (kinda expecting a girl, but will take either gladly) with arrive sometime after Christmas (EDD early Jan) unless she comes early (which is not usually my style).

I love this group!

excellent! thank you ladies. pls check the first post and make sure i didn't screw up your info... thanks especially to those who enabled me to copy and paste i did put in usernames, not real or partial names. i left __ where i didn't have info.

any other stuff you guys think we should include? now is the time to add other info, while the list is short we could add HB/BC/HO for homebirth/BirthCenter/Hospital, for instance, but those things can go in our signiatures too.... whatever you guys think.

i can also add other categories. for instance, i think kraftykathy should have a lurking category. yes? i'm just going to do it, and tell me if you want me to take it off krafty, ok?

i could add an / category, but don't want to assume we'll need it

one more "business" question: does anyone want to have a practice of removing members who stop posting? it might sound mean, but i've been keeper of another thread, and know the member list can get less useful for existing members when it's outdated. maybe we only remove people who we haven't heard from by 1 month after their due time? or i could create another category called "Unconfirmed Graduates" or something, and not actually delete them but move them from the active list. then they could always be moved back to birth announcements later if they show

sorry to be boring. i just want to make sure i'm doing this cooperatively, not forcing it or making it how i would w/out feedback

this is really fun - i'm kinda bored in my DDC, it will be great to have a group where some of us are farther along, and we get to look forward to birth announcements SOON :

Please include me.

ZoraP, 40/41, 41, EDD Oct 9, 2009, girl

Interesting that so many of the couples here are exactly our age. Must be a fertile time.

updated to here.

fun to see women here! i'm wondering, why are we having babies later? maybe most of us already have children.

afm, i do not. this is our first, and we've been together for a looong time. we were moving around a lot and too far from family to be very serious about kids for years. my husband has wanted kids, but i honestly felt a lot of ambivalence about it. i kept waiting for the desire to come. finally, we moved closer to family, and started feeling like, now or never! we are confident we'll love being parents, and are really looking forward to it now. i probably wouldn't feel like i'm having kids "late," if this wasn't our first (i'll be 36 when this one hopefully comes). my mom had my little sister at 41.

Take one grad student who wants to finish degree before having kids. Add in infertility and IVF. Suddenly, I'm 35 with my first - who decides she wants to nurse until 3.5 - meaning holding off on more ART until then. And - here I am

perdita...we weaned because i have low progesterone and i was still nursing dd when we (unexpectedly) got pg in 07. i didn't wean for that pg and had an unexplained miscarriage. i didn't really force dd, but she was down to nursing once every few days or so and she was becoming MAJORLY annoying with the nipple pulling and biting.

you may be able to conceive while nursing...just wanted to throw that out there!

:******OHHHHHHHHH, you want my dh's age! Didn't catch that!! He is 49!!******:

About having babies later in life...

My dh and I got married almost 7 years ago. I had 4 when we married and he didn't have any and had never been married. We have 2 together and 1 on the way. (we lost 2 at 10 and 15 weeks also) This little sugarplum was NOT planned but we are so excited and can't imagine life without him/her now! We are hoping for a girl as the oldest two (22 & 13) are girls and the last four (11, 9, 4 & 2) are boys. But I really love them boys so we will be okay either way!

Btw, I realized the other day that I have been having babies for 23 years!
