Hello! I feel like I'm kind of cheating here. I'm only 34 right now, but I'll be 35 in a couple months and would love to join you! In the OP format:
capretta, 35, 33, 10/1/11, sex unknown obviously
This is my first pregnancy and it was our first cycle trying. So we're thrilled, but also kind of overwhelmed by the whole thing. Looking forward to getting past the initial nerves so that I can just relax and enjoy the pregnancy - that does happen, right?
welcome and congrats! we'll allow it (since you will be 35 when baby arrives). even though you're still only 34, i'm sure you'll be clumped into the dreaded "advanced maternal age" group.
when i was pregnant with my first i met with a genetic counselor and he told me all the over-35 statistics. "but i'll still be 34 when i give birth" i told him (turns out i had dd 11 days before my 35th). he said, "well, it's not like something magical happens at age 35" and continued with his spiel.
it can be overwhelming, but try to enjoy it. it can be nerve-wracking at first, but you will eventually relax.
