we're pretty happy about it!


I'm Heather, mom of 2 beautiful DDs (5.5 yrs & 3.5 yrs). We found out yesterday morning we are unexpectedly expecting #3. We have a couple of concerns...I suffered from PIH with both of my other pregancies and was induced once my bp hit 'stroke level.' I'm hoping I can be a little less stressed this time around to keep my bp managable. Additionally, I'm 38 and DH is 40 (39 & 41 at delivery), so I have that AMA worry going on...


Still, I'm so amazed at what my body is currently doing, and looking forward to enjoying the ride!

Hi and welcome to Mothering!


Congratulations!  It sounds like you are being really proactive about your PIH this time around, and very aware. :)  I was 2 weeks shy of 38 when I had my baby last year....and while I was AMA, I don't think I ever thought about it. But, being aware is really the most important thing.  :) 


Join a Due Date Club if you haven't already. :)  And our Pregnancy and Birth section is great! I'm sure there are some folks there who have the same concerns or have been through something similar.


Congratulations again and welcome!
