I'm still in too much shock to be scared yet lol.

This is my first. By the grace of genetics I'm in good shape but I'm finding that little by little I'm starting to have to work at it to stay that way!
So far in this pregnancy (all of a few days) I am a magnet for junk food (salt, fat, repeat...) and all my fruits/veggies are shriveling up. Hopefully it doesn't take the same toll on me.
My birthday is August 26th also! I'll be 42. Happy early birthday!

We've had a bunch of losses but I'm starting this one out with an OB/GYN just until 2nd trimester to make sure everything is okay. I ended up doing clomid which seemed to fix a ton of hormonal issues and now I'm taking progesterone. Also taking cramp bark to help calm down my uterus.
I feel SO positive about it this time (that's why I'm already here! ;) ). I just am continuing to visualize a happy, healthy pregnancy and a wonderful home birth followed by an amazing little babe. SO excited!!!
I had a SUPER faint positive Saturday and my son knows and is excited. We still said "maybe" but now it's official. SO EXCITED..
When I woke my husband up to tell him this morning he said, "is it a boy or a girl?" I told him this later when he woke up for his day and he denied it. "I did not say that." LOL!
Did I mention I was excited?
Yayy!! Super congrats! Positive vibes going out to you!
I'm 42, will be 43 around my due date. I'm kind of surprised, but not really. 'They' say that it's harder to get pregnant at my age. Not for me. This is number 8. My kids are 23, 22, 17, almost 8, 6, almost 4, almost 2. My husband is a little ... traumatized right now :) Just got a faint positive last night.
