I mentioned an article up thread, which talked about how older women, particularly  44 or older, who conceived  with their own eggs and carried to term were more likely to live to 100. I couldnt find the article, but guess what, it looks like some of this research is entering mainstream websites. Here is the same argument, only they are saying it is women over 35, and over 40 who have babies,   may live to be 100, because they are aging more slowly in general.

Hi! I am 36 and due in May/June 2012 with my 5th. We have had  a scare early on and still not sure if the baby is going to make it or not. At my first appointment when I should have been 6wks 4 days, there was only an empty gest sac measuring 5wks 1 day. FF to my follow-up appointment on Nov. 18th and we saw a baby and HB, but baby was measuring 2 weeks behind where my chart says I should be. I have another follow-up on Nov. 1st. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we see progress! So, my orginal EDD by my chart is May 28th 2012, but my adjusted EDD by growth is June 12th. Hopefully baby will meet us somewhere in the middle.

 

Congrats to all the new mommies to be!

Hi -

 

I have not been here in a long time. In fact I'm still listed in the "in our thoughts" section as I think the last time I posted was last spring maybe after I had had my second miscarriage in a row. Anyway Please move me to pregnant list! I am almost 16 weeks EDD 4/14/12. Still very nervous and paranoid something will go wrong, but Im very optimistic at the same time. PS I'll be 39 (almost 40) when this baby comes.

Pretty much over the first trimester nausea and etc!  Now I'm enjoying loose ligament hip pain and sciatica - and it seems like earlier than ever before.  if this keeps up, I don't know how I'll get through the next 5.5 months!

I'll be 42 when the newest little one is born! Yowza!

I just watched Gloria LeMay's birth video, which was intense and beautiful. I'm grateful to my doula, Erica Shane, for sharing her videos with me. We finally bought a car seat, and I'm glad to know I may live to be 100 so I can see my baby grow up and have kids. Looking forward to having this baby, as I walk really really slow these days: I'm 37 weeks.

 

Hope you are all well.

I'd like to join in! I will be 38 when the baby is born and DH will be 41. This is our third. I'm due next June and currently 9 weeks.

I've been dealing with severe morning sickness since week six and been in bed for a week+. Yesterday I started to feel just a little bit of improvement so hopefully in another week I'll be able to start weaning myself off the zofran. :) Glad to meet you mamas!

Hi, 

I would like to join. I will be 39 when my baby is born in early June. My DS will be 4 and will be starting school next year. I had been all ready to move into the next stage and was a bit surprised that I am going to be back to diapers and baby stuff. As my belly rounds out though (I'm huge already at 11 weeks) I'm feeling like this is really happening and I'm getting excited.

 

Good luck and sticky thoughts to all of you!

Still here and almost 19 weeks!

 

Im having the level II U/S on monday and will find out what we are having. I am excited to find out, but a bit nervous about the U/S as well because we did not do any of the first trimester screenings and I know some things can show up on the level !! U/S. Im hoping that everything looks great and I can breathe a little easier for the rest of this pregnancy.

 

Other than that I am much bigger at this point than I did with my son at the same point! Just starting to bust out my maternity clothes!

Hello, I would like to join. I am due June 12th. I am 37 now and will be 38 when the baby is born and DH is 41 and will be 42. We thought we were done having children but I guess this baby had other plans :) I am excited, nervous and happy I held on to my wraps and most of my cloth diaper and wool stash. My first born died at birth from SMA however it was a genetic mutation. My second pregnancy ended at 9 weeks, my third pregnancy was wonderful and healthy and resulted in our beautiful big, strong, healthy son. I have really good vibes about this baby. We are not doing any genetic screening aside from level 2 u/s at 20 weeks and in the last few weeks of pregnancy including Biophysical profiles (we did this with my son as well) I am really hoping to have a VBA2C with this baby.

This thread is almost 2 years old so I have no idea if anyone will find this.  I would love to join, I'm 41 and having my first baby.  My husband (I have no idea what DH and DD and all that means yet) is 37.  I wanted a baby since I was 5 years old, but I just never found the right man to settle in with nor did I have my act together until 3 years ago.  I was very depressed in my 30's and lost hope by 40, but then I recieved all kinds of blessings in rapid succession, such as meeting a good husband and father to be, getting married and pregnant...all within 6 months.  I'm now grateful that it didn't happen before I created a good life, got myself together financially and emotionally and spiritually, that I have a great partner and provider and am out of debt so I can stay home and enjoy raising this amazing life.  It's magic.

Saw this in the new posts section: My understanding of the abbreviations.

DH is dear husband. DD is dear daughter. DS is dear son. SIL is sister in law. MIL is mother in law.

 

There used to be a post somewhere that addressed these. Also, you can do a search on google asking, for example, "What does DD mean?" and get some websites that explain a lot.

The show was about how old is too old to have a baby. Mostly about IVF.

Hi all

Glad this thread is up and running again.  I lurked a bit in November, but didn't introduce myself.  I turned 36 in December.  My second child is due in June.  So far I don't feel any different (re:older) than during my last pregnancy when I was 29/30.   I feel young and healthy.  Since it took us 18 months to conceive this one,  I did wonder if I had missed my window, but we got pregnant only a few months after I started acupuncture and the accompanying health regime (although we were always pretty health conscious) so I guess something was just slightly off.  I think the abstract line for determining advanced maternal age is pretty ridiculous.  I rejected the tests encouraged because it would not make me act any differently and would just make my anxiety act up.  I am looking forward to holding a beautiful, healthy baby in June.


Metreehugger.gif College Literature Professor reading.gif(36) and DH (35) married 7/05, together since 1/99; Mom to two lovely and fierce little girls: DD1 2/06 and, after 18 months TTC (and a couple years NTNP), DD2 born 7/3/12!  Dedicated AP parent who is for selective (most) vaccination.

Hi, I just posted a new thread in "I'm Pregnant." I'm 44 and I'm pretty sure I'm due September 14. This is my third child, I have a 14 year old and an almost-3-year old. I've had five miscarriages, so am still pretty nervous about this one holding. But so far things look great (I see an endocrinologist). I'm in shock; this was a big surprise. We thought we were done after our miracle boy arrived in 2009. I can't believe I'll be 45 by the time this one is born! My husband will be 48! We are very young-at-heart, but wow!

I'm 36 (will be 37 when baby comes) due Aug. 1 with number 5 :)

 

The "old" mom thing is new to me. My youngest is almost 4 and I was only 32 when pregnant last time.
