Hi Rachel! I'm Jules. I have a DS who is 12 and a DD who is 4. We are also expecting number three! My DH is also 45 and I am 32. My mom had me when she was 39. I was totally her smartest and most darling child. You're in luck!

The wait for that first appointment is KILLER!! We're all here with you! H & H 9 months to you and welcome to the board!

Hi, Rachel, I"m Rachel. I"m 39 also. We thought we were done with having kids also, I"m a full time student. We had a surprise pg last fall that I m/c so we decided to go ahead and try for another one and it happened immediately. I was completely shocked last fall, and still shocked when it happened so fast this time. Those first appointments are killers! I took like a zillion tests before my first appointment for the constant reassurance this time around. Congratulations and good luck!!!
