to Join all of you! I am 42 and this will be (if all goes well) our 7th

blessed gift to raise. I had mc in late Sept last year and after trying

desperately for several months, decided to be satisfied w/ what we had and

move on. I sold nearly EVERYTHING baby related a mere 2 weeks ago and with

amazed bemusement found out that I am now, pregnant! So, I will be hitting the

garage sales with the optimism that THIS time, we'll welcome a babe.

I am due on Valentines Day and am waiting to tell DH on Father's Day. (think I

will put note on tummy that says "gift backordered until Valentines Day!)

I sure hope to stick around a LONG time here! Delaine (formally,tiebreaker2003

and micro1with6)

Welcome Delaine! How old is your youngest? Guess I really want to know if you had a child already after age 40? I find I'm terrified of the chromosome issues after 40 , that I like to hear when women have more than one PG after 40. I'm PG w/ my third and am currently 8wks 2 days along.

I wish you a long healthy stay and I love the idea of telling your DH on fathers day. I found out on Mothers day what a terrific gift for me.

Best wishes - Kit (40) DH (42) 2DS (5,3) 2~i~ (11/01 & 3/02) , bean 8wks 2 days

I have a Sons (17, 13, and 8) and Daughters (14, 5, and 2). My youngest

was born just after I turned 40...to tell you the truth, I didn't even

THINK about a problem. I guess, when you fear MC more (I've had 3), that goes on a back

burner for a bit. Best wishes to you, Delaine
