Introducing myself - Pregnant with our 1st!!

Hello all,

I've been lurking around for a few weeks and just now getting up to posting. I'm 32, DH is 36 - and just last Dec. we decided it was time to start our family after 15 years of marriage. He's always been ready I think, but not me. I couldn't imagine it. I just wasn't ready or in a good place before. But, all of the sudden something clicked in me and - BAM! - I couldn't get pregnant fast enough. We started trying in Aug. and 3 cycles later -

Welcome April! Your journey actually sounds quite similar to mine. I'm also 32 expecting #1. Although, dh is 4 years younger and he was the one that wasn't sure. We started talking about it around Dec last year too. I went on prenatals in March-ish. It took us 5 cycles. I though I had been tired but this week has kicked my butt.
I'm glad you're not neasous and your cramps went away. Take care of yourself and little bean. I look forward to getting to know you better.

Welcome. I am 32 and my DH is 36 as well. We've been together for 17 years married for 10. We started trying almost 4 years ago. I had a couple of losses but am here again now and couldn't be more thankful. I had an u/s yesterday that moved my due date to June 29th.

We've always has a hard time not sharing with our families so good luck to you. Since we heard the heart beating, we might tell our immediate family, we figure in our situation that they are waiting too. :)

Looking forward to getting know you ladies and for a happy & healthy pregnancy.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. :) Glad to hear I'm not the only 30-something in this boat. I admit I was a bit worried that it took me so long to even consider starting a family, but here I am, sooner than I ever thought. My next dr. apt. is Dec. 13th and we get to hear the heartbeat then - so as long as everything goes well with that then we'll start telling everyone. So excited! It couldn't get here soon enough!
