Smile Back again! It's been 8 years....

Looking for a bit of encouragement I've been gone from the forum for about the past 6 years as I went though a divorce, and had no more littles. I just remarried on 3/4 to an awesome guy. Well, on 4/1, we found out we are expecting a honeymoon baby in early Dec.

While we are both very happy, I think this pregnancy will be different from the past ones.

I'm turning 40 this year. O_O

We haven't told anyone in real life yet, so please keep it on the down low if you are a friend/acquaintance there.

Looking for any tips/encouragement for an older Mama.

Re: Back again! It's been 8 years....

Hi welcome back!! I am starting to get older & think I am done having babies. We have 7 they are all around 2 yrs apart or so, my oldest is 14 so being pregnant is wearing on. I am not yet 40 so I don't have any input on that & being pregnant hopefully another mama will chime in. Although I am sure you will do great the human body is amazingly resilient

Congratulations! I turned 40 in April and am pregnant with #2. Due in late Dec. I guess we like December babies my 1st was born in early December 2011. I'm excited but yea a touch daunted by society's view of older moms. Are you in the Dec due date group?

A friend of mine gave birth to her second child at 39, everything is just great! I am going throught divorce now, too ( with help of Right Lawyers ), but I am sure there will be only better future, your example has encouraged me
