Haven't been on here for a while, but it looks like I'm not alone in that.  Wink

How is everyone?  Are you all hanging in there?

This will be my fourth childbirth, but my first ending in the summer.  All my other kiddos were born in late fall and winter.  Not only is third trimester "interesting" in the heat of summer, but pregnancy at 41 has been VERY different than in my 20s and 30s!

Because of my age and other factors in my history, I have been monitored closely.  I joke that I'm in the classification of "geriatric gestation"  haha

I'm so happy to report that, so far, baby is doing wonderful! Smile

I've had multiple ultrasounds, as well as an amnio and other genetic testing, all of which point to a perfectly healthy baby GIRL!  Yes, it's a girl!

I'm the proud parent of one boy - age 16, one boy - age 9, one girl - age 8, and now one more girl.  We are a perfectly even-matched family of 6.

I'd love to hear back from the rest of you and get caught up on how ya'll are doing.  I want to know how your babies are doing, if you know the sex of baby, and what you're going to name him or her.

Hope to hear from you soon!
