Hi all, I am very happy to have found this board and look forward to the discussions and valuable information all of you can provide. I will be 43 in November and just confirmed the results of a positive home pregnancy test at the doctors today. I had sadly given up on the idea that I would ever have children given my age and the fact that I am currently not married. This pregnancy is definitely a blessing but I am very worried about everything I have been reading about the risks of having a baby when you are over 40. I also am extremely worried about how to pay all the expenses since due to a lay off I currently do not have any health insurance. I am working but it is a contract position and therefore doesn't offer any benefits. This worries me mostly because of the increased potential of premature birth, etc. Well anyway, I am looking forward to this journey and to sharing with all of you.
