Looking forward to meeting other mums who are in my age group! I'm pregnant with my fourth baby at 43, I'll be 44 and 3 months when this little one arrives. My children are aged 20, 18 and 16. This pregnancy is naturally conceived, and a little unplanned ( but I'm super delighted).
So far I feel great apart from having a flu for a couple of days. I've had two scans and heartbeat rates look great, and while I'm aware of advanced maternal age bringing extra risks but I would describe myself as very positive and hopeful of a healthy baby. I did have two light bleeds at 7 and 8 weeks that lasted only a day or so.
My OB has recommended we consider the Harmony test if the twelve week scan measurements indicate a high risk of trisomy.
I have been advised I will not be able to labour naturally because I have had two caesarians in the past, which I was a little upset about. My OB has said the chance of rupture is higher than she would like to manage.
Who else is having a later life baby?
