I am so glad to have found this message board. I recently found out I am pregnant with #3. I just turned 40 last May. My first two children are both "clomid" babies and I didn't think I could conceive on my own so this is quite the surprise. DD's are 8 and 10.

I have been researching pregnancy at 40 and all the statistics can be very scary! Seeing so many ladies pregnant after 40 delivering healthy babies is peace of mind.

Welcome to the board Kathy. I am March 2011 as well. The stats are scary but just the fact that you DO have a BFP is a very promising sign.

Congratulations Kathy!
That is such great news! I am also newly pregnant (about 7 weeks now) and can relate to the anxiety you feel when reading about pregnancy over 40. I turned 40 in March and find it scary to read about all that can go wrong. I just keep reminding myself that there are plenty of women over 40 who have healthy babies everyday! I also recently found this site and have found it to be a great source of support and advice. Hope to hear more about how the pregnancy is going, and congrats again!

Congratulations on your pg! I'm Carol and I just delivered baby #7 on July 27th at age 46. I have had 4 babies past 40. Things can turn out surprisingly well. Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months!
