Am I really the oldest one here? I was afraid of that! Planned to have my kids in my early thirties, but fate had other things in store. So here I am at 43, hoping for my first. I'm hoping what I lack in youth I can make up for in financial and emotional stability. I'm quite envious of those having children in their 20s... by the time they are my age, their children will be mostly grown and they can start another whole kind of life, which I think is awesome. But I know in my heart of hearts that I wasn't ready for this responsibility until now, and I'm so grateful that it looks like I may get the chance at last.
Your baby is coming into this world with a mother who has her !@#$ together. Some people never mature, some mature earlier than they should ever have to (my case).
You're ready now. So many congratulations to you. So many people never take the time to think about the physical and financial demands that babies require, let along the emotional support. You're already heads above so many others. Be proud. Trust me - your baby will thank you for this and you'll be the best mother you can possibly be. A big up to you for putting thought into what will be best for a child and not just for yourself. If there were more people like you this world would be a much better place, I'm sure.
i wanted to kick some of our polls back to the top as we near the end of this amazing time together. we have many more folks in the DDC than we did back in the first months and im curious to see some of our stats.
so if you havn't taken these yet, please so.
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
I turned 30 last week, so baby will definitely be here when I'm 30 :) Our goal when we got married was 3 before I was 30, so we missed that by about a month or less. Oh well! Pretty close anyways. If it hadn't taken so long to conceive DD1 and we hadn't had 3 miscarriages we definitely would have made it.
OMG - If anyone used the term "elderly" with me they would get a punch! I turn 40 next monday...

Either 34 or 35...depending on which side of my birthday he/she comes on! We started trying when I was 30 and we had been married for 2 years.
4 years and 5 IVF cycles in the making, Elliott was born at home in water on 2/2/11.
I'll be 35. Pretty happy about that too...my other kids except for our first all came on or after I'd turned a year older (ie my last baby was born on my birthday....kept thinking I'd be able to say I was 31 but he was overdue so he was born on my 32nd birthday).
