How wonderful! Congratulations. You might try the Pregnant After 40 board. This one seems to mostly be women who are trying to get where you are.


Best of luck to you. You must be thrilled!

Thank Jodi,

I am happy but trying to control the emotional. I am afraid of the unknown.

Thank you Linda,

Today I am at my last day of the week 6th and today I start to spot brown blood. I am not sure what will happen. My first appointment will be on Nov23. I hope my baby hang on tight. If tomorrow there is a change on spotting, (If it become bleeding then... ) I wish it stopped.

This is the reason why I want to contact other women in the same situation as mine. I heard that there somewhat different between the woman who has first pregnant at 42 and woman who was already pregnant before then pregnant again at 42. I don't know what to expect.

Thank you Linda,

I already lost the baby. It is exactly 6 weeks. It is sad, but I will move on and prepare myself to get ready to try again in 6 weeks. 2 nights before I tested, I dreamt of somebody handed me a baby, but the baby neither look anything like me nor my husband. In my dream, I said " But the baby doesn't look like me or my husband at all". It was so vivid and I woke up. The next day, I told my husband and went to buy a test kit. It was only one day late, I got positive in one minute. It was so weird!!! and spooky. I had no morning sickness at all while I was in my 4th and fifth week. So, there was a mistake of sending me the baby (I tried to see it in positive way). If it meant to be mine, I will carry it to the term. I wish you luck too if you are trying. Thank you again
