To all the wonderful ladies who participate on this board, it is with great sadness that I announce my resignation from CL of the Pregnant After 40 Board. After careful consideration, I have decided that I just don't have the time to commit to the members and the board as you deserve. My three children demand most of my time -- and all of my energy. Dare I say that my age may have something to do with it, too? I just don't know anymore. Until the past few months, I always said and believed I was a "young" 40 something. But I just haven't bounced back this time like I did with our girls. I don't know how much of it is age, how much of it is due to the excessive amount of weight I gained (although I gained just as much with each of our girls), and how much of it is due to the fact that I just need to get back into physical shape. My right leg, which started hurting immediately after delivery, hasn't gotten any better. I was hopeful it would, but it's just gotten worse. I guess it's from trying to keep up with my two year old who needs to be much more active than she is (no thanks to my having no energy or stamina the last 9 months!). And my back is just plain killing me. The whole mid section of my back constantly hurts. It doesn't matter how I sit or stand, it just always hurts. I finally booked a doc appointment for next Monday -- hallelujah! Sorry to leave on such a down note, but I just physically can't keep up with everything anymore. So, it is with great sadness and a feeling of defeat that I leave you as CL. I intend to still participate here, and I hope to still offer and receive support if you ladies will still welcome me as a member. Despite my frequent whining and complaining during the last few months, I really, honestly, truly, don't like to complain a lot. But this pregnancy just got the best of me. So I wish each and every one of you the absolute best during the remainder of your pregnancies and I hope you all have a relatively easy delivery and healthy baby. I look forward to hearing each of your birth stories and seeing pics of your new arrivals!
Thank you so much for allowing me to get to know you better and for sharing some personal details about you and your pregnancy journey(s). I enjoyed every moment here as CL and I wish the next CL all the best.
