Remember Me?

Hi Ladies,

I've been examining the threads and see some familiar names that I recognize from the spring. I took a few months off from the board.

As way of introduction for some of you, I am 42, DH 56. We found ourselves unexpectedly expecting last fall and went through a devastating loss in Nov. With children aged 30, 28, 18, 15 and 10 (his, mine, ours) we debated whether or not we really wanted to "start over." I had a tough time dealing with the loss. Eventually coming to peace with it, we tried for a few months with timed intercourse. Made peace with being done...new grandbaby July 1 made that a little easier and now...Just got a BFP yesterday and feel the need to return for support.

I feel a lot calmer than I thought I would. Yet am filled with the mixed emotions that come with a pregnancy after a loss...and the fact that...I'M 42 and starting over!! :)

Thanks for reading!

First- congrats on your BFP Vicky!!


Second- my husband is the youngest of 6 kids, and the next youngest is 17 years older than him. His mom was in her 40's when she got pg, and he's got a niece who is 6 months older than him.
