I too have a history of mc's, but seeing the hearbeat is all I need to feel better. Ultrasound is scheduled for 5/16. It's so hard to wait!

I am 40, DH (35) and I am currently 7 wks. I have a DS (17) and a DD (8). This will be my 3rd but a first for my DH. After 2 m/c's, its Very hard to be calm and really enjoy being pregnant. Every little twinge or pain makes you panic. Being I lost my others in early 1st trimester, I am just trying to get to 12 wks.

Good Luck to all you other Mom's to be out there!Happy Mother's Day!
I'm new to this board also. I hope to be hanging around for awhile though. My name is Kathleen(42.5) and DH(43) and i are newly pregnant with our first. I had a miscarriage 12/02 @ 15 weeks. We were very excited to read a positive pregnancy test on Saturday. Haven't even called the doctor for an appointment yet. According to the online calculator I used, EDD should be January 15th. Wonderful timing as it fits into my school schedule very well (elementary educator).
I'm really looking forward to getting to know all of you and share stories!
I'm new here, happy to be able to talk with other older moms, as I don't know anyone anywhere near my age who has ever been pregnant.
I'm a bit concerned hearing about everyone's miscarriages, and I hope this is not a common thing for us older moms.
Best wishes to all - I think we are in for an exciting year!
