I just noticed this on the main board and thought I'd offer some encouragement even though I am no longer pg (or finally not pg- I was for almost 5 yrs straight...).
With ds3, I was 44 +2 when he was born and with ds4, 42 +3. Both of them were so round and pink and beautiful. They were alert and healthy and had the most amazing chub everywhere- they looked like cherubs!
It is very hard to wait so long, mama- I know- but right now you can be thankful for all of the obstacles that your little babe will not have to overcome. That so much time has passed means that your baby will be fully formed and matured in the womb- the best place for this early development. I would do anything to turn back time and put my first two sons back in for the month and more that they missed and needed (but I was naive and took very bad medical advice).
Once your baby is born, you'll no longer think of this time as being so long; it will seem too short and you'll think with fondness of how your baby communicated with you before you could see one another; you'll remember that this time (that is now so hard to endure) was so precious and unique in your life and that of your baby.
You are going to do just great, mama. Try to think of the future if it will help you cope with the present, but remember that this time will quickly become the past and you'll be feeling the warm, soft skin of your newborn baby in your arms, against your chest, very soon now.
