Hi all. Just found out I'm pregnant. Did tne HPT twice this weekend and twice positive. First time being pregnant and I'm 40. Hubby and I are nervous but excited will be calling the doc on monday to schedule 1st appointment. Been doing some research on the do's and don't's and now I have info overload. Everything I read about having a baby at 40 is all doom and gloom, and is now causing me to worry to the nth degree about everything that can go wrong or what I might be doing wrong. I just read that my shampoo and lotion might be a danger to my baby! yikes...Deep breath. Of course I know raw eggs are not good to eat but I had a caesar salad two nights ago, so now I'm thinkin what did I do?
Two deep breaths..so, I turned 40 in Jan, had a leep procedure about 10 years ago and had another abnormal pap smear this past summer and was given the ok to have a baby. Okay, I would really like to know that women 40 and over had babies for the first time with similar medical history and had a perfectly healthy baby.
