Hello all! We just confirmed yesterday at my first ob appointment that I am indeed expecting. I am 42, and I haven't carried a baby since my 20's, so I am in utter shock! My husband had a vasectomy after our dd turned a year old in 1996. We knew we wanted to adopt one day, so we made the decision early in life. We have since adopted two children, so we have 4 in all. I am pretty shocked still, as I really just thought I was probably starting menapause. :-) I am starting to get a bit excited, but I am mostly overwhelmed. I am so glad my husband is being a great sport about this. We conceived on our 21st wedding anniversary, and our due date is April 1st! How's that for an April Fools day surprise???? Has anyone else out there had a pregnancy after her partner has had a vasectomy? MY world is rocked.... this is the LAST thing I expected!

Congratulations! That must have been a shock for you :) Is your dh going to have his vasectomy redone or are you just not going to trust it at this point?
