Pregnant at 43

Hi Ladies,

I was pleased to find this board for this type of discussion, it seemed to have little attendance in other pregnancy boards. I am 43 and found out almost 2 weeks ago I am pregnant again. My son is 21 months old and it had taken us 6 1/2 years to conceive him (we did so naturally, after a previous fertility specialist visit didn't work out). I had a pregnancy last year end in miscarriage in October, very traumatically. I am very nervous to be excited about this, but I am optimistic that this is our time again. I have already been to the OB/GYN who is also cautious due to my age and history.
