I've just found out that I'm expecting around June 2, 2010. I'm excited and nervous, and scared all at the same time. I'm an older momma at age 39...I already have a 11-year-old daughter from my first marriage. It has been a WHILE since I've done this.
I'm most worried because they say at my age that the chances of M/C (18-20%)and birth defects are higher. I have to say though that there must have been a reason for this to happen, it was a real surprise to me! I didn't think that it would be very easy to get preg at my age....I was WRONG!
My symptoms so far are heartburn, stomach upset, some very sight nausea (maybe from vitamins?), gasiness, (sorry!) frequent urination, I can smell EVERYTHING, and sore breasts (although they aren't as sore this week?---wonder if I should worry?) Oh, my appetite is crazy! When it's time to eat I think that I can eat a table full! LOL.
So, right now I'm trying not to be too anxious and remind myself that there's like an 80% chance that everything is just fine. I haven't had my first Dr. appointment yet, but will on the 11th...when I'm a little over 6 weeks, almost 7. So if you are of the praying kind, please say a little one for me! I will look forward to knowing all of you here!
