Hi, all. I am new here, and I sought you all out because I can't tell anyone yet that I am expecting, and it's driving me crazy that I don't have anyone to talk to.

My husband knows, of course, and my best friend guessed. We plan to tell family and close friends when I hit 12 weeks (I am 6 weeks now).

I am also an older expectant mom - 35+.

So, hi! Happy to have found you.

Welcome aboard! I'm 35, almost 36. Glad to know I'm not the only one of so-called "advanced maternal age"....

Hi there!

Congratulations on expecting your first child and welcome to the May 2013 Expecting Club (and welcome to iVillage!). I hope that you find friendship and support here during your pregnancy journey. Wishing you a very happy and healthy nine months!

Welcome!  I loved the boards when I was pregnant with my first.  They were a bit busier a few years ago, but so far, this bunch is super supportive.  A lot of BTDT Moms, so among all of us, we can probably help with questions you may have.

Hi there!

I'm new to the board too (well, I guess we all are fairly new). I'm also in the group bearing the distinction of "advanced maternal age". I turned 40 a week and a half ago.

Congrats on your pregnancy, and on finding this place where we can all chat about it!
