Hello fine Mothering women-
I'll be 6 weeks pregnant tomorrow, and I'm so happy to find this forum. I'm still getting my mind around this pregnancy; I'm 47 years-old and have 2 daughters, ages 13 and 15 (great pregnancies, labors, and water births with both, I might add.) My age doesn't really bother me. I think age is so much in our heads. I think I feel younger than I did when I was 20, and so much more present and in the moment. I just can't get caught up in other people's perceptions of it, or negative projections. (I can only imagine what my mother will say!) I hope to enjoy every moment of my pregnancy, and have a positive attitude. I just told my partner today, and he was upbeat and happy, and even chuckled a little to himself. He said he'll wait to get excited until after the danger of miscarriage has past. He has had significant fertility issues and was never able to conceive with his ex. He never thought he would be a dad. It will be a new adventure for all of us!
I look forward to hearing about everyone's journey.
