    Hi!

    I'd love to joinin here too if that's okay.

    I'm 42. I have a 23 year old and a three year old, both boys. I'm currently 32 weeks along with a little girl. I can so relate to what many of you are going through because I had a stressful pregnancy with DS1 (sub chorionic haematoma) and then three miscarriages. I decided to stop trying while we went to Bali for a holiday...but just before leaving I got a faint line! To my surprise the baby stuck through all the exotic food and cycling across Bali!

    The first scan at 8 weeks I was so sure if lost the baby, and to see the heartbeat was such a thrill! I was worried all the time so broke it down into milestones...first heartbeat, NT scan (our results were 1 in 460 and 1 in 660, decided against risking amnio), morph scan etc. Each hurdle we made it over gave us confidence.

    This pregnancy has been okay...nowhere near the extreme sport of a pregnancy I had with DS3...but lots of tiredness, sore back, bleeding gums and freaky nightmares (which explains why I am awake right now!)

    MyMiracleBubba and PreciousOne...so glad your babies are doing well!

    Good luck everyone with your journey, 12 weeks scans and getting safely through second trimester. Jellybeanicecream, congrats on 32 weeks ! Oh and I can relate to your freaky nightmares !

    mymircalebubba, journey has been very stressful so far. Nothing like my singleton pregnancies. But there is light at the end of the tunnel as I will be 25 weeks on Wednesday and another monthly scan due on Thursday. Let's hope twins have put on sufficient weight.

    Hi everyone and welcome to the new additions to our group :-) I have to say when I put the call out for other people in my age group, I didn't think there would be so many of us but am so glad that we have each other, especially at various times of our pregnancies, it gives us first trimester Mums to be hope :-)

    Happy Mother's Day to all, may our pregnancies continue to grow healthy, happy bubbas. for all of us and babydust for all too

    Hi ladies

    Hope I can join you here. I'm 12 weeks today with number 2 and I'll be 40 in August.

    We have a DD who turned two last month. She is an IVF baby. In February this year we transferred our only frozen embryo but sadly this was unsuccessful. So we were planning our next cycle when very next month we got a natural BFP!!!

    To say that it was a shock after five years is an understatement.

    Wishing all you ladies smooth pregnancies and a very happy Mother's Day.

    Great too see everyone on here as well & wishing you all well ... Im 32 weeks & Talk about preg hormones .. My daughter is 17& has a part time job waitressing (been there about 2 months) .. I had to ask her to tell her work that she wouldn't be able to work this coming Thursday as I needed her to drive me to my antenatal appt (about 1 hr from where we live ) because my fiance is unable to come& with dizziness I don't feel confident driving by myself.. They were a bit grumpy with her& told her they need more notice next time.. I rang them later to explain& apologize that she had to take me ... Now I feel like I might have put her job in Jeopardy& feel soo bad& guilty ... But surely they should understand - especially after I rang ? What do you think ?

    Tan - difficult one. I can't understand someone not being sympathetic.

    For those of you with older children, how have they reacted to your news? I was super-surprised that my 22yo and almost-15yo were so positive. I expected it from the younger, but the eldest was a bit of an unknown quantity.

    Twocam, unfortunately my teenage sons seem to want to ignore the fact that I am pregnant.....let see what happens when the babies arrive.

    Missleo, congrats, twins as well.

    Nat256 so you are just a couple of weeks ahead if me....we can compare notes on what to buy as ill be starting soon. One thing is for sure, the list is going to be very basic and nothing what I did 18 years ago. Yep like you, wanted to get to some sort of a safety zone before buying anything...week 26 sounds good.

    I have adult children from a previous relationship (DD - 22, DS - 19) and my partner has 2 adult kids (26, 22) and two younger ones (14, 8). Only mine know so far and they were very, very happy. DD even said that meant it would help hold off her cluckiness for a while. They both know how much we've been trying & all the m/c so they are genuinely happy.
