That is all I can manage right now.
I am so very excited for you!!!
Congrats and best wishes with everything in the days ahead. I have a similar story to Joan and you. I struggled with infertility and loss for years and ended up doing in vitro to conceive our oldest. A bonus baby followed. Now, we are expecting our 3rd and it is another bonus!!! Miracles do happen. Last year, after a miscarriage, my husband wanted to throw in the towel and call it quits via a vasectomy, but I just wasn't ready to go there! I gave myself one more year and almost to the day conceived again at the age of 40. My EDD is 3 weeks shy of my 41st birthday. (Although, now I really am ready to call it quits! LOL)
Similar to Joan, I decided last fall, as we were coming upon the one year anniversary of our miscarriage that it was indeed time to part with the baby things and donate to charity. Fortunately for me, Catholic Charities never returned my email with regard to donation of the bassinette, baby clothing (I have one boy and 1 girl so I'm ready for either!), high chair, double stroller, etc. I guess God intervened on my behalf! Sometimes when we think we are done, we really aren't!
Again, congrats and wishing you lots of sticky vibes,

Welcome! That was my reaction too when I realized I was pregnant. I'm 42, single,
Thank you so much for the warm welcome, I am sitting here with goosebumps it makes me feel so good. :) Sounds like I am going to have an awesome support group here, so many similarities, this is the only place I will find it, there is no one going through this in my social/family circle so you will all be priceless to have in my life.
