Guila (43) DH (43) edd 12/26 this is #1 for me and DH, #2 for me. My dd is 23. We have been ttc for two years now, this was the first ++ hoping it sticks. We have our first u/s next Friday, hoping for good news. Feeling exhausted, bb are killing me, hungry all the time, already a belly bulge. All good signs I hope. Anyway, so glad to be here with everyone.

Christine (40), DH (37), DD (2), edd 12/27. MC 2/21/03 at 10.5 weeks has me pretty on edge about this pregnancy - we weren't supposed to try for 1 more cycle. First US on Wednesday. Hoping/praying/wishing to see a little HB. Won't start to feel comfortable until I get past 11 weeks.

Karen (42.5), Boyfriend (40). I have 3 year old son who I adopted. I'm 10.5 weeks with an EDD of 11/29/03. Just had 2nd US, and so far things look good. This is my 1st pregnancy. Still looking for a DDB, preferably someone who is due around the same time. I've had trouble finding old messages on this format - if you think you might be a good DDB, my e-mail is: Thanks!

Barb(43) DH(42) DS(4) DD(2) EDD 1/5?

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'm 42 and pregnant after having three teenage children. My youngest is 13. This has not been going as normal as it is supposed to be but my ultrasound today states the baby is developing but the sack has not gotten larger. I'm not sure what that means and I hope that it will. I will see the doctor for my prenatal exam tomorrow and talk about what tests to take. I am contemplating the CVS. Since its been awhile since I was pregnant last and this was not planned I have alot of questions and I'm nervous about this. So if any one out there has some good advice let me know.

Thanks Joann

I am new to this board, but I have been a regular over on the recurrent m/c boards. (m/c's: First one in Sept, 02 @ 7 wks and second one in Feb, 03). :-(

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.


7 wks (and turning blue from holding breathe till 12 wks)

Good Luck to all you other Mom's to be out there!

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi All,

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!

Hi, I'm Elaine, 42 years old, husband 47 years old, son 10 years old, due date is December 25. I live in Victoria, B.C.

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!
