Hi there, I'm Emily (40) & live in Norfolk, UK with my hubby & son.
We're expecting #2 EDD 27th August!! I've been married for nearly 19 years & have a son aged 9. We'd tried for years to have a baby experiencing 2 miscarriages before having our son in 2002. Since then we'd tried to have a second child, but again had a couple of miscarriages....at which point we gave up trying & resigned ourselves to the fact we were only meant to have just one child.
Then, lo & behold in late 2010 I unexpectedly fell pregnant....oh the joy (& shock!!) - the family were stunned & thrilled. Sadly I miscarried again at approx 7wks. Right...that's it....we are not going through this any more!!
Ummmmm....23rd Dec 2011....I think I may be pregnant...seriously....better do a test....POSITIVE.....What??!?!? Since then we've been in a state of disbelief, euphoria & sheer shock. It's not been an easy few weeks, I've had some bleeding, 2 scans (showing a good strong heartbeat & very lively baby) & dreadful sickness. BUT, I'm 11 weeks pregnant & at present all is going well. We're trusting the Lord & praying for this precious little life.

Would love to hook up with other over 40's on here.

Thank you do much. Enjoying things around here so far!! Finding it easier to navigate using my phone rather than the actual website at the moment though!!

Congratulations, Emily! What a journey you've been on. So happy you can be a part of this group. I'm not over 40, but hey, 40 is the new 20, so we all average out to 30 around here :)

Welcome!
