Hi Ladies,

I"m Joanne, 43yrs old and have just concieved naturally after a couple of months trying. I honestly didn't think it would even happen let alone happen so quickly. I found out last week and spent most of the week in shock. This week I'm a little better but because it's so early, I'll be 6wks tomorrow, I'm not letting myself get excited just yet. I feel like a crazy person at the moment, my age terrifies me. I'll be 50 with a 6yr old! I also have a 7yr old daugher. I'm anxious to hear from other older moms who are going through this or who have small children in their late 40's.

Huge congrats Joanne! That's wonderful news... And being 40 or 50 with a young child is nothing. There are many moms who have come thru here and have had children in their forties. I had just turned 41 when we found out we were pregnant with triplets And I have a 7 yr old It's great to have another mom join us...there are quite a few of us here..some now in their second trimester..some in their first. Again..big grats to you..sending sticky healthy baby vibes you way Jump on in, ask questions and share Hugs
