    Hi I'm recently 40 and fingers crossed due in May with my first. Just had some spotting this afternoon plus all the lovely other symptoms.
    my husband and I are still battling anxiety as our age is a factor we have to look at for the future. Though I'm more a live each day and make plans for then and see what happens.
    still a little nervous as I was told with endometriosis and pcos never to expect kids. Though turning 40 my body seems to have decided its partytime finally.
    lots to take in 40 and a first time mum.

    Hi and welcome Alteise, congratulations on your pregnancy. I too have PCOS and this is my 3rd baby, but my 6th pregnancy. So obviously falling pregnant was never an issue for me and periods would vary from 3 a year to 1 to 6, so i was all over the place.

    I had some spotting at 10 weeks, and I was really worried, but all was fine. I had a scan at 8,10 & 12 weeks, because I had a missed miscarriage at the beginning of the year, found out at my 12 week scan baby had died at 6 wks and I didn't have any idea. But I fell pregnant again 2 months after my D&C.

    This bubba is a first for my partner and I will have a 15 yr gap. My son is 18 and my daughter will turn 15 about a week before this bubba arrives. I am almost 26 weeks now and due in early Dec. I turn 43 next week, so I was pretty nervous and anxious with everything, still am at times although everything is looking good.

    All the best with everything, hope all continues to go well.

    Congratulations Mum47, how exciting. You must be one very busy Mumma. I'm glad your going well and healing well etc.

    I've started swimming at our local indoor pool and going to start prenatal yoga soon, am looking forward to that. The weeks seem to be flying, I have 9 more weeks before I go on maternity leave, can't wait.

    Mum47 - glad to hear you are doing well.

    Precious - I have a similar age gap between this bub and my older kids (younger daughter is 15yo). Nice to have built in babysitters, right

    Alteise welcome

    AFM I had my 42nd birthday a couple of weeks ago. I am just over 20 weeks and on Friday we found out we are having a BOY

    Yes I'm still here too. 29 weeks tomorrow, feeling good but tired. Finishing work in 5 weeks, can't wait.

    Hope everyone else is going well, those that are still around!

    I need to have the 2 hr fasting test, as I failed the first one for glucose tolerance test. I'm not overly surprised as I had to do this for my last pregnancy 14 yrs ago, but I passed 2 nd test. Just a pain really, hope this test will be better.

    Hi ladies, I'm back. This time for real. I found this thread a few weeks ago when I thought I'd stuffed up with our natural birth control. I hadn't then but I have now!! I'm in shock, my hands are shaking as I type. I honestly thought I was going through early menopause as I had so few fertility signs which makes natural birth control harder. This cycle I was surprised to see the thermal shift which signified I did ovulate but wasn't in the least worried I would fall pregnant. We dtd on day 9 and I didn't have any obvious fertile fluid then and I didn't think I ovulated until day 14. So apparently not only am I still fertile but dp had some amazingly resilient sperm that must have survived in me for days. According to my fertility bible that got my pregnant first time with son and prevented another for 4 years, it's theoretically possible for sperm to survive for 5 days but highly unusual. I know I wasn't being as careful lately but I'm still in shock this is just so damn unexpected and unlikely. I'm just recovering from my first ever flu that made me feel like I was dying. I only took the test as was still feeling nauseous. I was so sure I couldn't be pregnant that I totally scared myself reading that ovarian cancer can cause false positives. I was convinced that was it. But since Thursday I've had 6 bfp's and just now line was much stronger than even yesterday and I'm 2 days late. I'm so relieved that cancer is unlikely the cause that I can't quite deal with the reality of an unplanned pregnancy at 40!!!!
    sorry for long ramble. Dp is out with the kids. I haven't told him, probably won't for a few days as he won't be happy and considering my age high chance won't stick. But if it does, hopefully I'll be welcome here? You all seem to be having normal pregnancies which is comforting.

    Hi and welcome Freyamum and a big CONGRATULATIONS! hope hubby takes the news well when you tell him.
    You are certainly very welcome here with lots of support. It has been fairly quiet here lately, there has been some births so the mumma's are pretty busy.

    I just turned 43 early September, this is my third. I have an 18DS & nearly 15DD, so this will be a huge gap, but a first for my DP....he is pretty excited, my kids aren't so excited.

    Found out we are having a GIRL, had a 3/4 D scan a couple of weeks ago. Oh gosh so excited to my little girl yawning, I'm now getting impatient.

    Hope things go well for you and you keep well. once again congratulations!

    Thanks precious one, I still haven't broken the news I think I'm still in denial! The odds of this happening the way it has were so low. I'm going to have to tell dp tonight. I oscillate between feeling maternal that this will be okay maybe good for our family and then I'm freaking out thinking how did this happen, how will dp react, how will I manage physically being pregnant and then looking after 3 kids and will I ever ever get back to work? I'm getting mild cramps like I'm on my period so every time I go to the loo I expect to see blood. I'm just super super confused. I guess once dp knows things will be more real

    I'm sure things will be okay with whatever happens. Remember to be kind to yourself. Sounds like it was a little miracle and blessing for you, i hope DP sees it that way too. Goodluck!

    How old are your kids? What reaction do you think you'll get from them? Mine aren't so keen, still aren't and I'm nearly 30 wks now.

    I had a m/c early this year and it makes you so anxious I know. I also had cramping with this pregnancy in the early weeks and you do half expect to see blood every time you go to the loo. I still worry. I had some spotting at 10 wks, but all turned out good. It was a relief to get to 12 wks, then 20 wks, then 24, then each week is a bonus.

    Thinking of you Freyamum.
